Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
“When you’re my client, you’re my priority and I go to bat for you!” says Mack Alsaidi, a top-producing broker with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. With over a decade of experience in the real estate industry, he is someone his clients turn to again and again.
Alsaidi has received many recognitions and honors in his real estate career. His work ethic shows through his accomplishments. He recently received the Outstanding Sales Achievement Award by the Chicago Association of Realtors, the Five Star Real Estate Agent Award by Five Star Professional, the “10 Best” Award for Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Real Estate Professionals and was featured on the cover of Top Agent magazine.
Alsaidi attributes his ability to grow his business to his organizational skills and the focus he’s put on building relationships with his clients. He says hiring his assistant last year and the addition of a new gratitude and appreciation program for his past clients and VIPs contributed to that growth. He also attributes much of his success to networking and building meaningful relationships within the business; those connections often grant him access to off-market properties. “That kind of insider information means that my clients get the first look at what could be the perfect home for them, and that’s a huge advantage,” Alsaidi says. Over the past year, Alsaidi has grown his business by 125 percent, he says.
His time in Iraq serving as a cultural advisor and linguist for the U.S. Army helped in strengthening Alsaidi’s listening and negotiating skills, especially in tense circumstances. “It was a lot like what I do in real estate,” he says, “because I negotiate with agents who represent sellers and buyers to ensure an agreement is established.” Alsaidi’s service earned him the Achievement Medal for Civilian Service as well as the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service for outstanding achievement during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn.
Alsaidi says he owes all of his success and accomplishments to a few simple yet important character traits: persistence, honesty and transparency.
