ISSUES Unique to Age 55+


Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) - The National Association of Realtor's Retirement Experts

The SRES is the only nationally recognized educational credential for Realtors specializing in the fifty and older homeowner demographic. Training is managed by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the world's largest professional association. Homeowners over the age of fifty typically have higher savings, and are frequently targeted for fraudulent practices or "training" for inexperienced agents or family members. Unfortunately the older we are, the less time we have to recoup losses. Seniors in have unique needs unlike a typical home buyer or seller. Once you find a tenured reputable SRES, you will be introduced to a strong network of established specialists in your community. More information on why you should use a credentialed SRES can be found here

What is a healthy building, and why should that be important to you? Healthy hospital stays frequently result in devastating issues for those with compromised immune systems. But indoor air quality and proper ventilation are just the beginning of a healthy environment. You need to know the questions to ask and the issues to look for when it is your turn to select accommodations for a loved one in need. LEED® is the most stringent of all certifications for both commercial and residential structures. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design® ) is a designation managed by the U.S. Green Building Council. Far more stringent than any other Realtor designation or "green" building design, the vast majority of LEED APs today are licensed degreed practicing Architects. Although most individuals do not hire an architect to accompany them while exploring housing options for loved ones, there are many factors you should consider. More about Sustainability.
Denise van den Bossche is a Legacy LEED BD+C,® the most all encompassing designation covering all aspects of LEED, with an estimated 30% exam pass rate. She has maintained the continuing education for this credential for over twenty years. More about Green and Sustainability here.
