Did you know that there are real estate specialists for Seniors?

A Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) is a REALTOR® who is uniquely qualified to assist seniors in housing sales and purchases. According to the National Association of Realtors®, “The SRES® designation is awarded to REALTORS® who have additional education on how to help seniors and their families with later-in-life real estate transactions.”

There are qualities that make an SRES® different: They have the knowledge, experience and compassion in dealing with senior issues; they take a no-pressure approach to the transaction and have a strong service orientation; they will take the time needed to make a client feel comfortable with the complex selling process; they understand the emotional demands a sale can have on a senior and they try to minimize them; and can interact easily with all generations involved.

A real estate professional can be an invaluable resource if they have experience in seniors’ issues, and who can put you in contact with other similarly trained professional advisors. An SRES® will guide you through the process and the special considerations, making the transaction less stressful and more successful.

As an SRES® I have a professional network that includes individuals who can help with various steps of the sale and move, offering assistance on these and other matters. This includes attorneys, financial planners, tax specialists, handymen, clutter reduction and downsizing specialists, estate sale planners, painters, etc.

Thinking of downsizing? Is now the right time to move? Has your situation changed that you home no longer works for you? If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, now may be the right time to call me.

When choosing a REALTOR® it is important to choose one who is a good match for the client and his/her needs. A client and the agent should work together as a team. The agent is a consultant who helps the client make decisions that are best for the client, not a typical salesperson who tells the client what they should do.

If you are considering a move, I’d love to meet with you for a free consultation. We can discuss your needs and options, determine the right timing and use me as a resource to help you make decisions.
