Keith Olbermann's Former Trump Palace Condo Back on Market
“Talk about real estate as a metaphor for politics: buyer's regret, indeed,” Keith Olbermann told The Hollywood Reporter after word spread that his former condo inside Trump Palace at 200 East 69th Street was already back on the market (for $3.9 million).
Olbermann rejoiced on Twitter after he sold the 1,750-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment in July, even though he took a $400,000 hit on what he originally paid in 2007.
“I got out with 90% of my money and 100% of my soul!” Olbermann tweeted at the time.
The current owner is Syrian businessman Harry Nasser, according to press reports. Nasser’s broker, of Sotheby’s International Realty, told Luxury Listings NYC that the quick flip had nothing to do with politics, rather his client simply wanted to move closer to Central Park.
Olbermann debuts his new online series called The Closer With Keith Olbermann this week on GQ.com, which will provide him with ample opportunity to further lash Donald Trump.
Asked why Nasser may have so quickly departed his new abode, Olbermann said, “I assume like anybody else who actually fell for the Trump name, he realized — sooner than later — that the gold on the building was as phony as the gold in Trump's hair.”
