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 & ongoing updates on senior RE 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. Because America is maturing and over 80% of its contemporary seniors own real estate and/or are buying new properties, the Council provides its REALTORS with skills and knowledge to service the needs of this unique section of our community. Nearly 4 out of 10 property owners over 65 have lived in the same home for over 30 years. The issues facing these clients are unique and special. www.sres.com
