The SRES® Designation: The Difference it Makes for You


You may have seen that I have an SRES® Designation… But what does that mean? How does it make the home buying or selling process different for you? SRES® stands for Senior Real Estate Specialist, and it means that I have extensive training and experience in specific laws, regulations, and unique circumstances that affect seniors.

For you and your family, this offers a host of differences from just your regular Realtor® duties:

  • Key differences in housing options – from age-restricted communities to age-in-place design to assisted living
  • Applications of the Housing for Older Persons Act (HOPA)
  • Ins and outs of reverse mortgages
  • How to use pensions, 401k accounts, and IRAs in real estate transactions
  • Ways in which Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security affect real estate decisions of clients and customers who are 50+
  • How to recognize and protect clients from mortgage finance and loan schemes and scams that target 50+ borrowers

As an SRES® designee, I understand the financial and emotional challenges senior clients and their families face when deciding to sell your family home. Together we will create a customized approach to marketing and selling your property, and help you explore your housing options to ensure that your next home best serves your current and future needs.
