Just Earned the NAR Designation "SRES" Senior Real Eestate Specialist
I just completed the SRES designation course as I mainly sell to senior moving in or out of Senior 55+ Communities. It was a 12 hour course which took 2 full days from 9-4 pm. The instructor throws a lot of information at you but I really learned a lot and it made me think about some of my previous or current clients. It made me think back and hope I had previous considered the suggestions given during this course.
This course covers 12 important chapters and then you can get resourses to use from the NAR website.
2. The 50+ Market
3. 21st Century Retirement
4. Aging in Place
5. Independent Living
6. Housing Options for Assistance
7. Financing Options
8. Tax Matters
9. Legal Matters
10. Marketing and Outreach
11. Working with Buyers and Sellers
12. Building a Team and Resource Bank
I highly recomend this NAR course to all Realtors and their team members also. I am sure this course has made me more aware of red flags. Mainly I think it has made me more aware of my actions and reactions as well. Be professional, keep up a barrier and do not become their best freiend, and make the transaction as easy as possible for the seller.
I am a full time, experienced real estate agent who has worked throughout the Inland Empire in the counties of Riverside and San Bernardino for many years. During the market crash, I sold REO homes for a many bank for 5 year. Since then, I have specialized mainly in the “Senior Market 55+” areas in Beaumont, Banning and Calimesa.
