Seniors and Real Estate...Making Good Decisions.

As a Senior, making life-changing transitions is a BIG deal.

Toward that end, I am proud to have earned the distinguished SRES designation (Seniors Real Estate Specialists).  What that means is I’ve taken many additional hours of training to help senior clients make wise decisions when buying, selling or investing in real estate. Many seniors have not bought or sold in years and their issues and needs are special in order to protect and enhance their equity.

Prior to my real estate career, I was a clinical social worker which, little did I know, was the perfect background for my career in real estate. Much of my prior clinical work was with seniors, and as a result I have specialized in the area of working with mature adults as they transition though lifestyle changes.

It is truly gratifying to become a part of someone’s life – to be a guide, a support, and a friend to someone I may have just met. Assisting my senior clients when they buy and sell their homes has allowed me to use the listening, negotiating and training skills which have proven invaluable. I work personally with my clients to provide seamless transactions throughout the entire purchase or sale of their home. And many of these relationships have endured for years.

Please contact me and we’ll discuss your personal home buying or selling needs.

Seniors Real Estate Specialists® or SRES® designees are REALTORS® qualified to address the needs of home buyers and sellers age 50+. The SRES® Council awards the SRES® Designation to those members who have successfully completed its education program.

REALTORS® who carry the Seniors 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 in financial 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.

The SRES® designation is conferred by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council of the National Association of REALTORS®, and there are SRES® designees in all 50 states and in Canada

By earning the SRES® Designation, your REALTOR® has demonstrated the necessary knowledge and expertise to counsel clients age 50+ through major financial and lifestyle transitions involved in relocating, refinancing, or selling the family home. Your SRES® has received special training, gets regular updates, and is prepared to offer the options and information needed in making life changing decisions.

From the moment we met Lynn, we knew she was the right person to sell our home. She answered all of our questions, was expertly prepared, and was professional and dedicated to getting the job done.  Her hard work at marketing our home, holding open houses and following up with interested buyers paid off. We highly recommend Lynn to anyone who wants action and results in selling his or her home!
