Catering to the Needs of Senior Buyers and Sellers

By being a member of the National Association of Realtors and holding the designation of Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) you can benefit from my advanced select training as it applies to downsizing and Right Sizing after retirement.

In Canada, Baby Boomers and Retirees represent nearly half of the population. For Canada's adults aged 50+, the homes that they live in are their largest asset and account for most of their net worth. As buyers and sellers, these consumers have very distinct real estate goals, concerns, and requirements.

I have also been awarded the Accredited Buyer’s Representation (ABR) designation by the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council. (REBAC) of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS (NAR).

 I now join more than 30,000 real estate professionals in North America who have earned the ABR designation. All were required to successfully complete a comprehensive course in buyer representation and an elective course focusing on a buyer representation specialty, both in addition to submitting documentation verifying professional experience.
