The Senior Advantage Real Estate Council®, “SAREC”, was created several years ago to assist qualified REALTORS® wanting to meet the special needs and concerns of maturing Americans when buying or selling residential or investment properties. SAREC offers a specific designation, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, “SRES®”, to identify those members who have successfully completed its educational program along with other qualifications.
REALTORS with the “SRES” designation help seniors make wise decisions about selling the family home, buying rental property or managing the capital gains and tax implications of owning real estate. By earning the “SRES” designation, the REALTOR has demonstrated that they have the requisite knowledge, experience and expertise to be a senior’s real estate specialist and counselor.
Because America is maturing and over 80% of its contemporary seniors own real estate and/or are buying new properties, the Council provides its REALTORS with skills and knowledge to service the needs of this unique section of our community. Nearly 4 out of 10 property owners over 65 have lived in the same house for over 30 years. The issues facing these clients are unique and special.
Susan Fixsen and Deborah Harter Realtor®’s with Pacific Oak Real Estate Services have earned the prestigious Senior Real Estate Specialist Designation from the Senior Advantage Real Estate Council®. Together Susan and Deborah have made it their mission to help seniors throughout the Bay Area and South County with all of their residential real estate needs.
