Former police Supt. Weis, wife quickly find a buyer for South Loop condo with Museum Campus view

Former Chicago police Superintendent Jody Weis and his wife, Janice, have a contract to sell their two-bedroom, 1,358-square-foot condo unit near Chicago's Museum Campus, which they listed last month for $509,900.

An outsider who was hired to improve the department's image, Weis served as the city's top cop from 2008 until 2011, leaving the year Mayor Rahm Emanuel took office. Weis now is an executive at Accenture.

Weis and his wife paid $533,000 in 2008 for the eighth-floor unit, in a transaction that included a garage parking space. Last month, they listed the unit for $509,900 without the garage space, asking another $35,000 for the parking space. Just a week later, the property went under contract.

The Weises' listing agent, Christie DelGreco, told Elite Street the Weises received multiple offers. "One of the things that made the unit so highly desirable was that it was highly upgraded and was in impeccable condition," DelGreco said.
