Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES)
Senior real estate specialists are real estate agents who have received training and certification in the area of senior real estate sales and consultation. The senior population is at an all-time high according to 2010 census data, with many seniors looking to purchase real estate for their living and investment needs. Seniors have special real estate needs and desires that differ from other home buyers, which is why the SRES designation is now available.
