Realtors who carry the Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation are specially qualified to address the real estate needs of those age 50+. SRES designees recognize that a home often is the largest and most precious asset that baby boomers and seniors have. Thus, SRES designees bring a unique approach to each transaction and interaction with clients. They not only offer a deep knowledge of real estate and the local and economic issues shaping market trends, but they're also educated on issues of particular concern to aged 50+ clients.Their special skills help such clients look at the big picture, factoring issues and current and future care needs, to ensure that each client arrives at the best decision about selling a property and finding a new home. Such Realtors also recognize the emotional dimension associated with selling a beloved family property and approach clients and family members with patience and empathy.

SRES designees not only can create a customized approach to marketing and selling your property, but they also can work with you to explore your housing options to ensure that your next home best serves your needs. Such certified specialists have special knowledge about everything from reverse mortgages and the importance of universal design to the uses of pensions, 401k accounts, and IRAs in real estate transactions. They'll also help you steer clear of loan schemes and scams that victimize aged 50+ borrowers and when you need help from other professionals, our agents can tap their network and put you in touch with qualified home inspectors, movers, attorneys, CPAs and other experts. SRES designees have all the resources and knowledge to simplify the transaction and eliminate the anxiety of selling your home.

    SUBMIT: michael 3.jpg      Why I chose to specialize in working with our Seniors?

I was where some of you might find yourself today! Before I became a Realtor, I went through the agonizing and stressful
experience of selling my parents home and finding the right facility for them to enjoy the rest of their life. To make a long
story short, my experience wasn't a good one. Whene I obtained my real estate license in 2010, I wanted to make a difference
in helping our seniors and their family transition smoothly. Whether they are rightsizing or transitioning to a senior facility;
I surrounded myself with professionals dedicated to helping and understanding our seniors. Whether they need a mover,
estate sales planner, estate attorney, organizer or someone with knowledge of our many ALFs; I can help coordinate the
pieces and get things done.
