Sidney Friedman has done over 800 real estate transactions in his eleven year career. His successful approach is a rare combination of knowledge, intuition, and truly caring about his clients.
As Sidney says, "When it comes to contentment, each of us has three concerns - our career, our relationships, and where we live. I can't help you with the first two, but I devote myself to helping you with a major third of your life, a great place to live.
"Whether buying, selling or renting, I know how important the outcome of a real estate decision is for your well-being and your quest for success. I carefully listen, I respond to all your calls and requests promptly, I do thorough research, I give you my insights about the marketplace, and I always go the extra mile (or kilometer if you're from Europe)."
In addition to his service excellence, as a life-long Chicagoan Sidney knows the city and the surrounding suburbs extremely well which can save you a lot of time in understanding the community into which you are moving. And if you are a seller, this honed knowledge adds to his expertise in pricing and the marketplace.
In fact, speaking of time-saving, Sidney likes to state, "I am in the business of real estate, but even more so, I am in the business of saving you time. I'm yours as long as you need me, even if it takes weeks or months, but by discovering your real wants and needs, most of my clients see the place they love within the first 10 or 12 properties, and many see it within the first 5 or 6."
Sidney's real estate success is not only due to his agent abilities, but also to his well-rounded interests. He is a practicing mind power guru and mentalist, with intuition skills that often help in the sales or buying process. He's also a windsurfer, a pianist, a guitarist, a composer, and an author of a national best-selling book titled YOUR MIND KNOWS MORE THAN YOU DO. Plus, he's a skilled ballroom dancer.
In fact, when you buy a new wonderful place or sell your home, you'll be joyfully dancing too.
I would highly recommend choosing Sidney Friedman as your Realtor. He did an exceptional job selling my condo at 1800 West Roscoe. I was apprehensive about selling during a pandemic, but I needed to move. I interviewed 3 realtors before I made my decision to select Sidney. From the start, Sidney was by far the most responsive and knowledgeable about the building and my condo. Since he lives in the building , we were able to meet quickly after I contacted him. We partnered on a strategy to prepare the condo, decided on timing of the listing, and aligned on selling price. Due to his experience with selling real estate and with this building, he was very confident that we would get offers within a very short time. The first offer came in within 3 days of posting the listing. The following day, price negotiations were complete, and a closing date agreed upon. Due to unknown reasons, the first buyer backed out. Sidney continued to work and within 2 days another offer was presented with same price and shorter time to close. In less than 5 weeks from the initial listing, the virtual closing was completed. Thanks to Sidney for making this process so easy for us. Both buyer and seller were pleased with the results. We miss our condo and especially the residents at 1800 Roscoe, but happy to still live in the neighborhood.
Sidney was terrific during the entire process . Our building is going through some challenges and his guidance during this time was critical in closing the sale . We have high ecxpecations in the area of communication and Sidney met our high level of expectations. Sidney has a very calming approach and is excellent to work with . He also has excellent resources that helped with unit staging and legal review.
Best ever. Got it done good.
To say that Judy's closing could not have taken place without you is an extreme understatement! I cannot even count the many times you came to the rescue to save this transaction, which was often perilously close to termination. You tackled each crisis (and there were many!) with dedication, patience, skill, and a sense of humor, which promptly resolved all uses and kept the parties sane and on track. You are nothing short of a super hero! As I mentioned to you many times, in my 30+ years of law practice, I have never encountered a broker who can match your professionalism and integrity! My sincere thanks for your tireless and remarkable efforts. Linda Baer
Overall, Sidney got it to work. The sale took longer than we anticipated, and the net proceeds were slightly less than we wanted, however the task was finally accomplished. Realizing all of the variables, and the fickle nature of real estate, we appreciate Sidney's guidance and tenacity.
We had a great experience working with Sidney! He was knowledgable, flexible, and made the home-buying process easy. We would highly recommend him!
Sidney was a great help in finding my new home in Chicago. He was prepared with a selection of different condos for my viewing pleasure in the areas of Chicago I wanted to live in. He was always helpful and responsive all the way through the process. I would definitely recommend Sidney to all my friends and family.
Sydney was of great help with my purchase and provided a excellent service, recommended!
