"I'm 85 and I Want to Go Home..."

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I was in today and caught a commercial for E Trade that I couldn't get enough of.

It takes alot to make me save something and even more to laugh out loud at the irony of something. I don't know if this link will work but if not just Google it and see how you feel. If you are still working I hope you are saving. I did but maybe not enough. I'm not at the welcome to Walmart stage of life yet but you just never know.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

I hadn't seen the ad.  It's both funny, and downright frightening.  I know a number of seniors who struggle to make ends meet.  I could actually do the Life Guard job, and even though I don't need it, I think I'd love it!

Yes, I saw this on TV, too Sheila Anderson.  I do know people in our niche (age-restricted communities) who own a second home, travel for months out of the year (including Europe), but all do not.  Some are couples and some are widows and/or widowers.  Many here do volunteer work, though I do know of someone who works at WalMart (no, he's not a Greeter), and his wife is still a French teacher at school.  I also know of realtor couples who work into their 80's.

Very neat Allie. Choosing to work and needing to are very diiferent as you know. This commercial speaks to the later and that is really scary. TY     Sheila

Oh, I dunno. Those jobs look like fun. Who says you have to stop working anyway? I keep trying to retire but my clients won't let me and my husband says no no no no, so I'm like OK, I can do this from Hawaii. See ya later, alligator. Hello Hawaii. Still working and loving it.

I saw this commercial and I looked at it what a sad statement but true...my parents moved to Hungary because they could not afford to be old in our country... and they did not want to work like the commercial showed...Endre

Thanks, Sheila.  Yes, it is a funny commercial.  Unfortunately, it is also true.

I worry about the real estate business where agents make money for everyone but themselves and then what will they have in old age?
