I’ve identified a real need that’s not often addressed in real estate … how to downsize your home for retirement in preparation for selling. I’ve gained keen insight into the unique issues, decisions and housing challenges facing those aged 55+. Maintaining independent living later in life can be difficult because things like home maintenance and health concerns often get in the way. Senior independent living is often the goal my clients are seeking.
Finances, investments, insurance and life situations impact the big decisions related to selling the family home. These factors also play into choosing the best housing options to pursue. So, I work with a variety of specialists serving the senior market including estate planners, attorneys, and CPAs. My team approach includes connections to a wide network of local community resources and service agencies.
As a REALTOR® with Coldwell Banker Real Estate Services, I focus on building relationships to learn about customer needs to define the vision for each of them. That means working with each homeowner to guide them with downsizing home ideas, and to create a unique marketing plan to sell their longtime home.
If searching for small retirement homes is part of the downsizing process, I seek out the best available options for their transition. I am a full-time REALTOR® providing personalized services for sellers, buyers, and investors.
I’ve been guiding senior clients through buying and selling their homes for over 10 years. Earning the SRES® designation, Seniors Real Estate Specialist®, means I have the extensive education needed to help with later-in- life housing transitions.
I wasn’t always a real estate agent. I previously worked in business project management and business process improvement, so this enhances my ability to work with you,as part of a team,toward the best housing solutions.
My office is in Peters Township and I live in North Strabane Township. I’m the past Treasurer of the Rotary Club of McMurray in Peters Township and a board member of the Peters Township Chamber of Commerce.
