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.
