In December of 2017, I took the classes and passed the test and got the “Senior Real Estate Specialist” designation (SRES), through the National Association of Realtors. My goal is to provide ethical expert assistance to people who want to sell their home and move to another.
I got my real estate license in 2002 and have worked with many older home buyers and sellers over the years, including my own parents who bought their last home when they were almost 80 years old. I have learned a lot along the way and want to be able to do more to help my older clients.
Moving isn’t easy and it can be especially hard for those who have lived in the same house for a lifetime. Through the SRES courses, I got access to resources and ideas that I can use to better support older home buyers and sellers.
Often older homeowners do not know where to start when it comes to downsizing. After having gone through that process myself I know how to downsize quickly and responsibly.
Here in Minnesota people who wish to move to housing with services get free counseling through Senior Linkage Line which is a free service through the Minnesota board on aging.
If you or a friend or family member is interested in learning more about selling your home please call 651-216-4603 for a free no-obligation consultation.
