Why S.R.E.S.

As I approached my 50th birthday, I felt  a growing desire to learn more about pre-retirement strategies.

I couldn’t seem to shake those Freedom 55 jingles from my mind, as I wondered where my investment portfolio was, and why did the urge to retire in five years no longer appeal.

In fact the very thought produced anxiety symptoms along with a feeling of dread and uselessness. Suddenly I realized ‘I am not ready to retire in five years! I am ready to embark on the third book of the Trilogy of My Life.

And with this realization, came the understanding that others must feel exactly like me. Knowledgeable, passionate, energized – yet skeptical of the retirement promises – and ready to seize the opportunity to open the door to a new horizon of opportunity and adventure.

I started reading, studying, and eventually I earned my SRES® designation, relocated to Kelowna, British Columbia and began scripting the next chapter.

Why SRES®?

In June 2007, the National Association of Realtors established the SRES® Council, which confers the SRES® designation.

  • SRES® stands for Seniors Real Estate Specialist.
  • REALTORS® with the SRES® designation are specifically trained to serve the needs and interests of real estate buyers and sellers age 50+.
  • SRES® Designees join an elite group of real estate professionals serving the 50+ market. Currently, there are over 16,000 designees.
  • SRES® is the only ― seniors real estate designation recognized by National Association of Realtors.
