A life-long New Yorker and thirteen-year veteran of the real estate brokerage industry, Sid Whelan has built a reputation among his clients, customers, colleagues and competitors for his passion, integrity, knowledge, care and persistence. They know that if Sid is on board, the job will be done the right way. Amassing broad experience, he has engaged in many aspects of the New York City residential real estate world, bringing an expansive base of knowledge and experience to his clients. He is an expert in townhouses; investment properties; new construction; co-op and condo resales; and rentals.

In addition to his long list of successful transactions for individual buyers and sellers, Sid has extensive experience representing sponsors, both as holder of unsold shares and as developer of new construction. In the development context he has worked in consultation from the pro forma stage through market analysis; demographic identification; product design & pricing and sales & marketing.

A former owner of two co-op apartments, Sid served three years on his former co-op board, including one year as its president. This knowledge of the inner workings of a co-op board has given him an unbroken record of successful co-op applications during his brokerage career. Says Whelan: “A co-op board application is not just about filling in the blanks and supplying the requested documentation. It’s about telling a story that answers all the readers’ questions.”

Sid was born and raised on New York City’s Upper East Side, where he attended the Buckley School. He attended high school at Milton Academy in Massachusetts and college at Oberlin College in Ohio, where his wife is currently a member of the Board of Trustees. Sid enjoys travel, hiking, fitness and horseback riding. He is an avid home cook, particularly commended for his paella and his homemade breads. His wife is the Associate Head of School at the Dalton School. Together, they live in a 1912 Harlem townhouse with their two daughters, one of whom attends Dalton and the other Vassar College. A musician since a very young age, Sid has been known to play a mean blues guitar when the opportunity arises. Before entering the real estate business in 2004, he worked in the music business for over a decade and remains close to many musicians of note, often helping them with their real estate transactions.
