Seniors Real Estate Specialist

Real Estate for Seniors in the Coastal Carolinas

 Senior Real Estate SpecialistWith the median age of so many of our real estate buyers and sellers in our area exceeding 50, I made a decision several years ago that I needed to get additional, specialized education so as to better serve those clients. Our communities and beaches are, after all, one of the most popular retirement destinations in the country!

To that end, I attained the SRES® Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation from the National Association of REALTORS® in 2006. I consider it to be one of the most valuable of all the professional credentials I hold.

As we age, we often need specialized medical care and the same applies to our housing and equity requirements! The mature buyer or seller has a different set of needs and depending on their individual life plan, financial situation, and property preferences, they also often need counseling by other types of professionals during the real estate search or transaction. Providing them with market information and property data is only part of the task; it’s also my job to recognize their individual situations and to recommend several kinds of expert advisors to assist when needed.


The following are but a few concerns of mature clients that I am able to assist them with :

  • Key differences in housing options, from age-restricted and non-age restricted communities, to age-in-place design, to assisted living.
  • Applications of the Housing for Older Persons Act (HOPA).
  • Ins and outs of reverse mortgages.
  • How to use pensions, 401Ks, and IRA’s in real estate transactions.
  • Ways in which Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security affect real estate decisions of clients and customers who are over 50.
  • Recognition of mortgage finance and loan schemes/scams that target this demographic.

Whether you’re looking to buy or sell your retirement home, wish to buy an investment property, or just want to look into the possibility of spending what can arguably be called “the best of your life” in this corner of the Carolinas, I’m ready to go to work for you!
