Senior Real Estate Specialist®
Senior Real Estate Specialist®

When buying or selling real estate, reaching out to your trusted agent or brokerage is the first step. They are field experts and know how to walk you through each step. Senior Real Estate Specialists® (SRES® designees) are professionals trained to work with clients aged 50 and over.

Here are a few concerns I am happy to discuss with you!

1. What areas of the city or town are senior-friendly?

SRES® designees have connections with senior communities and know the questions you should ask as you vet different neighborhoods. If you prioritize finding a location near shopping, medical care, outdoor recreation, or with a large senior population, make sure you mention that to your SRES® designee.

2. What should I look for in a home if I plan to age in place?

SRES® designees have access to a wealth of resources that discuss what makes a property livable for seniors, including single-floor living and wide hallways, and are equipped to provide practical and creative solutions to help you find the perfect home.

3. I’m worried how a real estate transaction will impact my retirement.

While consulting with your financial advisor is always recommended, an SRES® designee can help you find a property that makes good financial sense and connect you with other experts in the senior market, like financial planners, loan officers, and reverse-mortgage specialists.

4. I’m starting over in a new area, and I don’t know where to go to meet new people.

SRES® designees know that moving presents unique challenges, the largest of which includes losing friends and social communities, and are aware of a variety of events and communities that will help you adjust to your new area. Ask them for assistance locating local senior centers, religious communities, social groups.

5. Do you know of any local professionals who work with the senior community?

For professional assistance in managing your retirement, renovating your home, drafting legal paperwork or treating chronic back pain, do not hesitate to ask your SRES® specialist. They likely have a broad network of contacts who work with people in the 55+ community and are ready and willing to support you.

Based in Memphis and serving clients in West Tennessee and Northwest Mississippi. Serving others is a reward of its own and part of what makes me happy, and I've been doing that for 30 years through various activities including Girl Scouts, PTO, various board positions, unhoused ministry, and professional, award-winning teaching. I treat others the way that I want to be treated including being readily available, listening to your desires, answering your questions thoroughly, and walking you through the home purchase process. My ultimate goal is to see that you find the home of your dreams and experience the least amount of stress during the process.
