I want to be your Super Hero … at Lake Chapala Ajijic

April 21, 2010

I’d Like to Try Out to Be your Super Hero here at Lake Chapala Ajijic… at least if you’re considering buying a home here. I’ve always loved Super Heroes from as early as I can remember. "Sid I cannot say enough kind words about you and the wonderful service you provide.  We are always happy to give your name to people who are looking for property to buy because we know they will be in good hands. Adios and Via Con Dios Jerry & Gloria December  10, 2009" Roy Rogers Sid Cowboy 001 Yes, of course I also loved Cowboy heroes (that's me at about 6 yea rs old in my Ror Rogers garb) too like Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and Hop a Long Cassidy. But. my real passion were the capped crime fighters like Superman, Batman and Robin. As a kid I acted out their escapades by pretending I was a capped crusader by tying a large towel around my neck draped over my back. Then, to simulate flying, I would run and jump high into the air from  the top of a neighbor’s garage into soft grass as I captured imaginary villains below. I reinforced my childhood dream of becoming a super hero by reading huge stacks of Superman and Batman comic books over and over… "I hope you will post this on your web page because I don't think the average person reading about your services realize all that you do in helping people find a new home in Mexico.  We have told all our friends about all the extra services you provide and they were amazed.   Bruce & Deanne Barber" So, I guess it was natural for me to join the first crime fighting team for which I was qualified years later as a young man… The Dallas Police Force. No capes, but a spiffy uniform  and after all Superman, Batman and Robin all wore spiffy uniforms and were always helping the police… and short of super powers this was a close as I could get to being a super hero. Lt. Sid That was way back in 1963 and I had a wonderful rewarding career as a crime fighter for the next 35 years. Not terribly financially rewarding of course but rewarding none the less. I still find it rewarding helping people in my new life here as an Exclusive Buyer’s Only Realtor, a super hero of sorts, protecting my clients from all the potential traps and pitfalls that might otherwise befall them without my guidance and expertise accumulated since my first trip to Mexico in 1960… and more recently when renting my first house here at Lake Chapala Ajijic in 1998 before there was even a local MLS… and living here full time since 2000. sidsuper4 sidsuper2 sidsuper1 You know no doubt the story of Superman but may not know my story: Sid’s Story: Well into my crime fighting duties as a Dallas Police  Officer I equipped myself to help others even more by finishing my undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice at Sam Huston State University graduating in 1972 Maga Cum Laudie  with a 4.0 gpa my Senior year… Then on to Southern Methodist University School of Law  graduating with a Juris Doctor degree in 1981. Studies in International Law at the University of Exeter in 1978 and 1980 including a course on the French Civil Code have proved valuable in helping my clients to understand the Mexican Civil Code which is based upon the French Civil code. "Hi Sid…Thank you so much for all your help with everything! We really appreciated your going 'above and beyond' in assisting us in our property search in the Ajijic/Lake Chapala area." (E mail on file) My childhood Super Hero idols in addition to shaping my career paths as an adult taught me, as did my time as a Police Officer (making at times life and death decisions), and as an Attorney (holding clients intimate secrets confidential) the following: With great power, there must also come great responsibility.. I take the professional responsibility I owe to my clients as an Exclusive Buyer’s Only Realtor with the same dedication and devotion to the highest ethical standards that I did as a police officer and attorney at law. Self Praise is difficult to trust… Especially in the “me first” world in which we live now; so let me share a few unsolicited testimonials I’ve received which have been a blessing to me. And serve as a reminder that treating my clients as I would want to be treated, if our roles were reversed, is the best way to do business. This is what the cousin of a friend says about you. If you want Ajijic or Chapala, Sid Grosvenor might be a guy to contact. http://www.chapalaclub.com/topics/email-contact-sid/. I've stayed in touch with him. A retired cop from Texas, he's credible as an agent in the area and goes way far out of his way to help. He's who I'll go to on the next trip. Julianne Seeman So, if I sound like the kind of person you want to help you….then please send me an e mail to Sid@Chapala Club.com and let’s get’s started making your dreams come true. SidSignature

    I e-mailed you about two weeks ago that we would coming down to the Chapala area. Well, we will be arriving late on the 22nd. And we will be leaving on May 6th so we would like to talk with you in depth about looking at real estate. We have been keeping track of properties on the Chapala MLS listings. We do have a number of places that look interesting and maybe you can assist us in finding something that is just right for us. Our plan at present is to try and be at Lake Chapala on a permanent basis around August of this year.
    Hope to see you soon.

    Loved your latest post. You and my husband both have something in common playing Superman. Must have been the signs of the times. Anyway, thanks for the address for the Mormon Church.
