As professional licensed Real Estate Practitioners, SRES agents have chosen to specialize in addressing the property needs of seniors.  They have either earned their designation by undertaking the Seniors Real Estate Specialist course of study and been awarded the nominal SRES, be studying toward it or have extensive experience gained over many years working with seniors.

The professional SRES focuses on topics including but not limited to; distinguishing characteristics and trends related specifically to the 50+ population; housing, finance, retirement income considerations and special counselling strategies to help seniors plan for later life transitions.  An SRES Real Estate Agent has also been taught how to recognize the key differences in housing options from age-restricted communities to age-in-place designs, including assisted living concepts and they understand the benefits of reverse and equity-release mortgages.
