Seniors Real Estate Specialist®





What is an Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) Realtor?



Created by the National Association of Realtors, the Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) designation is for REALTORS® who are educated to meet the special needs of maturing Americans. Agents who gain the SRES designation complete a set of training courses that specifically address senior real estate needs. They also cultivate networks of specialists in related fields such as estate planning and tax counseling to provide the best experience for their clients.



Unlike many conventional realtors, SRES agents believe in a supportive and informed no-pressure approach to buying and selling real estate; they are prepared to suggest housing alternatives to buying a new home, or ways that enable a senior to age in place. SRES professionals are also trained to identify senior resources in communities to help clients find the best fit for their lifestyle, should they decide that moving is the best option.



Whether you are considering aging in place, downsizing, upsizing, relocating, or even purchasing investment property, navigating the ever changing world of real estate can be confusing, even for experienced home buyers. Those over fifty are often savvy shoppers, but they can still benefit from using a knowledgeable SRES realtor. Benefits of using an SRES agent include:



  • Creating a customized approach to your living situation that fits with your goals.

  • Awareness of options like senior-based communities and aging in place needs.

  • Understand and explore ways to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses and generate income, or how to find the financial assistance needed to help you remain independent longer.



When approaching retirement and planning real estate changes over the age of fifty, an SRES realtor is a professional who actually works for you and has the experience and training to understand your unique challenges when it comes to housing.
