Buy a Condo, Get Secret Service Protection?

Trump Tower

In what might be something of a real estate first, a brokerage is touting the U.S. Secret Service as an amenity to sell residential property in New York City’s Trump Tower.
According to a Politico report, the real estate agency Douglas Elliman is trying to move a $2.1 million, 1,052-square-foot, one-bedroom condo on the 31st floor in the building that is also home to President-Elect Donald Trump. In an effort to attract buyers, the agency sent an e-mail blast that played up the president-elect’s federal protection detail—albeit with running a spell check first. “The New Aminity [sic] – The United States Secret Service," stated the e-mail. “The Best Value in the Most Secure Building in Manhattan.”
The Secret Service and the Trump Tower management office did not publicly comment on this marketing ploy, and as of this writing the property is still available.
