I've been a Realtor since 2002. I obtained my Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation initally, as I have a background of working with the mature community and wanted to take that expertise into the real estate realm. I maintain contacts and relationships with professionals who serve this population and communicate with assisted living facilities, social service and governmental agencies serving seniors.
Seniors consider moving for one or a combination of 3 reasons: failing health, dwindling wealth or to be near family. Often this being near family is a concern with one or both of the other reasons, health and money. I work to determine the reasons the person is considering a move and help them understand and navigate the options available to them.
I volunteer with Tallahassee's Elder Care Services Meals on Wheels program, delivering meals once a week. I teach the AARP safe driving classes to area individuals, am an Ambassador with the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce and a member of Tallahassee Real Talkers, a local Toastmasters club.
When not working or volunteering, I enjoy the outdoors for exercise by walking or cycling.
My niche is the mature population, having a background of working the senior community, I stay involved in issues that affect them. I network with social service agencies, city, county and governmental agencies and assisted living facilities and maintain a network of professionals that specialize with the mature population. I can help with estate sales, relocation services, elder law attorneys, handyman services and other vendors to help the seniors moving into a new place and/or out of another home.
Most of the buyers I help are first time homebuyer, so I stay involved with lenders to specialize with these buyers and maintain knowledge of the changes in the lending programs affecting them.
I have my Brokers Associate license and the Certified Residential Specialist, Graduate Realtor Institute and Seniors Real Estate Specialist designations.
Selling real estate in Tallahassee, Leon County and surrounding counties. Specializing with the mature property owner. Have my Brokers Associate,CHMS, CRS, GRI and SRES designations.
