Seniors Real Estate Services

Please give me a call if you would like some information on Services for Seniors or information on Downsizing resources at 416-562-5002 Thank you! 

I have recently completed training as a nationally recognized SRES® (Seniors Real Estate Specialist), which is a group of Realtors who specialize in handling Real Estate transactions for mature clients.  After I got over my initial shock of finding I was included in this group (how did I get this old?) and then my acceptance of the facts (seniors discounts at Shoppers Drug Mart = yay!!) I was able to absorb all of the amazing information in the training.  

This may be obvious, but probably the two most important issues are aging in the home as long as possible & the worry of outliving your financial resources.  Interestingly, both parents and children want to maintain separate households, too.   The training included a highly informative session from a local lawyer on issues associated with wills, power of attorney, probate and estate taxes.

If you (like me) have friends and family that might be faced with decisions regarding planning for the future, or may even be unsure where to start, I have compiled some helpful resources including: 

  • Adult Active Living developments across Ontario & the GTA
  • Legal Services specializing in wills, trusts, probates, POA’s and estates
  • Accountant and estate planning tax specialists to minimize probate fees (among other things)
  • De cluttering & organizing specialists
  • Reliable and reasonably priced handymen and contractors
  • Information on reverse mortgages and other financial programs that may help a senior to live in and enjoy their current home for as long as possible

I plan on adding to the list of resources as often as I can, as centralized information is hard to find.  

So if you have parents or relatives (or friends that are encountering these questions) give me a call & I would be happy to share my information with you.  Just helpful information with no obligation.
