Senior Real Estate Solutions
Senior Move Specialists
Each of our listing agents have earned the Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES) designation, gaining the necessary knowledge and expertise to counsel clients aged 50+ through major lifestyle transitions in relocating or selling the family home. Sadly, in this day and age, seniors are at risk for being taken advantage of. Our devotion to work with this group was born out of the essential need we see for seniors and their estates to have the best representation possible. We offer a comprehensive and compassionate approach to helping families navigate downsizing from their homes. We are your centralized downsizing hub, bringing together the partners needed so that you do not have to figure out this transition on your own.
Upcoming Senior Seminars
Our free senior seminars are hosted all around the metro St. Paul area. Topics focus on downsizing, moving, and renovating to help ease the stress of your home sale. Click below to see what seminars we have coming up.
We understand the downsizing process. Moving is complicated, and for many of our clients who have been in their homes for 30+ years, it is simply overwhelming. We have a streamlined process to help our clients navigate the sale process: we act as the primary point of communication in coordinating all of our clients’ moving needs. We have a team of trusted experts we work in concert with to make the move as painless and straightforward as possible for seniors or their families. Our trusted experts include:
Senior Move Manager: Responsible for sorting through belongings, planning what furniture and how many dishes fit in their new home, and providing packing and unpacking services.
Estates Sales and Liquidation: Responsible for efficiently and expertly presenting and selling as much as possible to clear the estate and make as much money as possible for the seller.
Estate Clearing: Responsible for clearing out the house completely in lieu of an estate sale, or in following an estate sale, they clear out everything that didn’t sell. This is a “green” process. They sell, donate or recycle everything they remove from the home.
Bonded Movers: Our recommended movers have 20+ years’ experience working with seniors specifically. They are approved in most senior communities, and offer the highest-level of customer service at a fair price.
Senior Housing Options
For seniors planning a move to an active lifestyle community like White Bear Lake or one of the many senior living communities across the metro area, we have relationships with many of these communities. We will work with you in conjunction with the staff of your new community to make the moving process as seamless as possible.
For seniors planning to downsize to a main-floor master where they can age in place, we have built a comprehensive database of all the main-floor master townhome communities in the metro area in addition to all of the area 55+ communities. Main-floor master communities are in high demand, and frequently townhomes with main-floor masters sell before they go to market, so the buying public is unaware. We are able to target these types of homes and contact owners directly to give our clients a proactive tool to find housing opportunities for which they would otherwise be unacquainted.
For seniors who want to have access to their home equity, our reverse-mortgage expert is available to educate our clients on the tool’s benefits and risks, so that you can make an informed decision on your options.
Maximizing ROI and Listing Services
Home equity is frequently the majority of an estate’s value-and the nest egg many seniors plan to live on. We understand the true value of real estate and how to maximize the sale and return on investment for our clients. That, together with our listing and marketing expertise, put our clients ahead of the competition. Learn more about our comprehensive listing services here.
