Q : What are the first steps in considering a move ?
A : The first step is meeting with us to review the condition and value of the home . We will discuss where the
client is thinking of moving so we can plan together a step-by-step timeline for the home sale process and move .
Q : What are the most common concerns of seniors ?
Seniors are often concerned about leaving the familiarity of their longtime residence . They are not sure where to start with organizing the household to be prepared for showings . The biggest concern is where they are going to move to next .
Q : How do you address those concerns as agents ?
A : We take a proactive approach in referring to the homeowner any vendors that need to be scheduled from decluttering to light repairs to clean up . We advise on which projects are worthwhile to net more from the sale and which can be left as is . Many seniors prefer to be surrounded by their own furnishings during the home sale . In those cases , we advise how to stage the home with existing furniture , which keeps them comfortable but also presents the home best to obtain the highest price possible . We assist with
any lease , purchase or assisted living community recommendations for their new home .
Q : Why did you obtain the Senior Real Estate Specialist designation ?

The designation by the National Association of Realtors has provided us extended education to assist clients through such a time of transition .
