What is an SRES®?
A Seniors Real Estate Specialist®(SRES®) is a REALTOR®who is uniquely qualified to assist seniors in housing sales and purchases.
First of all let me say that I am a full-fledged “Senior” myself so I am fully involved in the market for later-in-life living options. Not only that, but my wife and I both have parents who luckily are still part of the family. I can assure you that the decisions regarding you and your parents will only become more complicated going forward. I done the research and even made some of the mistakes already. I guess really I’ve already done a lot of your homework for you, so why not let me help you get your plans together for the future.
The SRES® designation is awarded only to REALTORS® who have successfully completed a series of educational courses on how to help seniors and their families with later-in-life real estate transactions. They also draw upon the expertise of a network of senior specialists, such as estate planners, CPAs, and eldercare lawyers, and are familiar with local community resources and services. Their mission is to help seniors and their families navigate the maze of financial, legal and emotional issues that accompany the sale of the home.
