What is a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®)?
The Senior Advantage Real Estate Council, "SAREC", was created several years ago to assist qualified REALTORS® wanting to meet the special needs and concerns of maturing Americans when buying or selling residential or investment properties. SAREC offers a specific designation, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, "SRES®", to identify those members who have successfully completed its education program along and maintain their membership in SAREC.
REALTORS® with the SRES® designation help seniors make wise decisions about selling the family home, buying rental property or managing the capital gains and tax implications of owning real estate. By earning the SRES® designation, the REALTOR® has demonstrated that they have the requisite knowledge, experience and expertise to be a senior's real estate specialist and counselor.
Members offer their clients the benefits of: education and ongoing updates on senior real estate issues, the national prestige of the SRES® Designation, sources of direct senior Website/Internet Referral clients plus access to Contemporary Senior Housing from the "Active Senior Builders Group", a division of SAREC. All this along with custom designed quarterly newsletters full of specific housing data for their mature clients.
