Sidney Torres is not your average real estate agent. While most agents look for an estate that will net them huge sums of money, Sydney looks for the ones that are failing. He helps failing real estates to get back on their feet and stay out of the red zone. And while doing so is not particularly easy, Sydney enjoys the challenge. It is not just his expertise that he lends to a failing project. More times than not, Sydney has to draw upon his bank to aid a developer. His exploits in real life are documented via the reality TV series, The Deed.
Sidney Torres was born on the 27th of August 1975 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Sidney didn’t have the best of starts when it comes to his childhood. His parents, Sidney D. Torres III and Alma Torres had a rocky marriage which ended up in a divorce. Sidney, who was 14 at the time, developed drug addiction after his parent’s divorce. After graduating from a local boarding school, Sidney enrolled at college but later quit his degree. He started working with Lenny Kravitz as his assistant. Things took a bad turn for Sidney as his drug problems surfaced and was fired from Lenny’s team.
Professional Career and Net Worth:
Seeking a new lease on life, Sidney joined a drug rehabilitation facility. Even though the entire process was hard on the 20-year-old Sidney, he somehow managed to overcome his drug problem. In 1997, Sidney started working at construction sites as a cleaner but was quickly promoted to foreman.
Sidney’s career as a real estate agent took off after he renovated a duplex and managed to sell it on a profit. After receiving a loan of $50,000 from his grandmother, Sidney started flipping houses and soon made a heft profit out of it. By 23, Sidney had paid all his loans and had made his first million. His earnings continued to grow and Sidney’s net worth is estimated to be around USD 300 million.
Life in reality TV:
Sidney’s popularity continued to grow and he was contacted by the producers of the Cineflix Productions. They pitched him an idea for a reality show and Sidney accepted. And on the 1st of March 2017, CNBC released a brand new series entitled, The Deed. The series became a stepping ladder for Sidney who was enjoying his new-found fame. The series recently wrapped up its third season which aired on the 19th of September 2019.
Similar to his professional life, Sidney’s personal life has seen its fair share of ups and downs. Long before Sidney’s career took off, he was engaged to Nikki Leonard. It remains unclear if the pair got married but they do have a son, Sam who was born in 1988. Things went sour for the pair and both went their separate ways. Sidney is currently dating Selina White.
The pair were first seen together in 2015 and have been together ever since. In their time together, the pair gave birth to a baby girl, Sefina born in November of 2016. The social person is currently active on his social medias Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
