About the Seniors Real Estate Specialist Designation

Seniors Real Estate Specialists are REALTORS qualified to meet the special needs and concerns of maturing Americans. A national program since 1998, The Senior Advantage Real Estate Council (SAREC) offers a specific designation, SRES, to identify those members who have successfully completed its education program along with other prerequisites. By earning the SRES designation, your REALTOR has demonstrated requisite knowledge and expertise to counsel senior clients through the major financial and lifestyle transitions involved in relocating, refinancing, or selling the family home. Your REALTOR has received special training, regular updates, and is prepared to offer the appropriate options in making life changing decisions.
