Senior Service with a Smile!

Whether you are transitioning into retirement, considering selling the family home, or looking for a low-maintenance alternative, I am committed to make this important time in life as comfortable and hassle-free as possible. As a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), I have extensive training that benefits you. Real estate transactions can be tricky and confusing to navigate, even for experienced home buyers and sellers. My goal is to help find the best solution for you, while balancing your finances, mobility, health, and housing needs. Consider me your no-pressure housing counselor!


How Can an SRES Help?

1. An SRES understands senior housing options

I am trained in all alternatives of senior housing. There are so many vibrant choices for today's senior! Many communities focus on senior upgrades, like one-story floor plans, low thresholds, wider doorways, and smart features. You may also want access to clubhouses, walking trails, exciting activities, and restaurants on-site. Whatever the next phase of living you have imagined, I want to help you achieve it.

2. An SRES can assist with financial options

Part of my training focused on how to use pensions, retirement accounts, and reverse mortgages in real estate transactions. I understand capital gains and other tax issues, so can help you decide if purchasing rental property is a good option. I have also trained on estate planning, and while I cannot give you financial advice, I have a team of dedicated experts that can assist. 

3. An SRES will help find the specialist you need

Navigating through the complexities of aging can be daunting. My focus is to help you be an informed buyer or seller (or both). I will be your advocate in finding the best solution for you. I carefully listen to your needs and can direct you to the proper person to complete your request. 


Caring. Dedicated. Experienced. Purposeful.

Knowledge is Power

Thinking about making a move, but not sure where to start? Wondering whether you should stay in the family home and make modifications or transition into a 55+ community? Worried about how you can afford to do anything? I would be honored to guide you through the complexities. As an SRES®, I will serve as your trusted advisor to make sure you are making the decisions right for YOU and your family. You deserve a knowledgeable expert with demonstrated skill to counsel clients age 50+ through major financial and lifestyle transitions involved in relocating, refinancing, or selling your home.
