WHY CONSULT A SENIORS REAL ESTATE SPECIALIST?
You don’t need to be a senior to hire an SRES® (Seniors Real Estate Specialist). Selling the family homestead can be overwhelming and is almost always a stressful event for anyone of any age group. REALTOR® and Seniors Real Estate Specialist Mary Lou Bigelow of Bowes Real Estate, headquartered in Arlington, Mass., knows full well. She works with elders, who after an illness or aging issues find they need to sell their treasured home. Mary Lou understands that the home is not just bricks and mortar. It is family history with memories of birthdays, holidays, parties, births and deaths.The REALTOR® with the SRES designation is specially trained to provide help and recommendations beyond the scope of the normal real estate transaction itself. She is used to counseling elders and their families over a longer period of time prior to actually marketing a property. Though an SRES is not licensed to advise on legal-or financial-matters, she is invaluable in coordinating referrals to elder-law and real estate attorneys, CPA’s, financial advisers, geriatric care managers, geriatric social workers, antique dealers and move specialists.
