Good idea. I did the SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) a few years ago because I had so much experience both with aging relatives and elderly clients. If you want to work more with this group, I would encourage you to look into it (if you haven't already). Great stuff!

PS I love Williamsburg - great place!

Yvette,

Where are you holding these meetings and how are you advertising them? Are you advertising them all at one time?  In the paper?

Thanks,

Monica

MARLENE - With everyone more tech savvy, I thought it fitting to put it on the web!

MARY - I haven't been, but plan on becoming more involved.

TRUNDA - I can't imagine every area not having seminars for the aging.

PAUL - I know and I'm reminded by the grey hair peaking through around my forhead!

MONICA -  They're advertised in the paper and held at an adult living community clubhouse.

Thanks for you input, I certainly appreciate the feedback!
