SRES Brevard County, FL

You might have seen the SRES designation listed along with my name – Carolyn Smith, Melbourne Beach Realtor, SRES – and wondered “What exactly does SRES mean?”

SRES stands for Seniors Real Estate Specialist and the designation means that I have successfully completed a series of educational courses on how to assist seniors and their families with their real estate transactions. This means that I have the knowledge and ability to help seniors and their families navigate their way through the maze of financial, legal, and emotional issues that come with buying or selling a home.

You might now be wondering, “Why would I want to use an SRES-accredited Realtor?” If you are over the age of 50, there are many reasons to use an SRES-accredited Realtor. As an SRES Realtor, I, Carolyn Smith can offer you:

  • Experience working with seniors
  • Knowledge of the local Brevard County real estate market as it relates to the senior population
  • Special knowledge of managing the sale of a home for those over the age of 50
  • Awareness of the financial and emotional challenges senior citizens face when they sell a long-held family home
  • Ability to create a customized approach to marketing and selling property for those over age 50
  • Familiarization with housing options for seniors to ensure that your next home best serves your current and future needs
  • Extensive knowledge in everything from reverse mortgages and the importance of universal design to the uses of pensions, 401K accounts, and IRA’s in real estate transactions
  • Help in recognizing loan schemes and scams that victimize and target senior citizens
  • A network of qualified experts including home inspectors, movers, attorneys, CPAs and other local Brevard County professionals
  • Resources and knowledge to simplify the real estate transaction and eliminate the anxiety of buying or selling a home
