Senior Real Estate Specialists

By on

Selling your existing home, moving somewhere new and setting up house all over again. That’s a big decision for anyone, but a major one when you’re in your golden years. But now there’s a group that claims they can help.

When David McConnell was ready to retire and make a major move from D.C. down to Florida, he found Senior Real Estate Specialist Jim Johnson. Jim found the retirement home David wanted – FAST!

“I got here at 5PM on a Sunday afternoon, and purchased this place at 10AM Monday morning.”
-David McConnell

Sure, any good realtor should be able to do that, but Jim says the big difference is the extra education in laws and systems that benefit folks over the age of 50.

“A Senior Real Estate Specialist is trained to be an Estate Planner, although we’re NOT estate planners… we know the legal aspects, although we’re not attorneys…”
-Jim Johnson, SRES / R & S Reality Group

He finds ways for senior clients to save money and make money, like safely using equity in a paid-off home. He refers clients to a wide network of trusted senior experts like Financial Planners, Elder Law attorneys, Handymen, and even morticians. In fact, David credits Jim with helping him find doctors, a dentist, long-term care insurance and more:

“He even introduced me to some friends that played cards … and it’s been great having that resource to call on when I need anything!”
-David McConnell

So if you’re in the market to move in your golden years, a SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) could be just the ticket. But don’t ever rely on any initials until you’ve totally vetted them.

    I would strongly suggest checking out the Jazz Jewelers before selling gold or silver to ANYONE. I did a great deal of research, online and offline, and learned a lot about this business. I found that the JAZZ JEWELERS paid more than anyone else I could find.
