As we age, we require and anticipate special needs, especially in our housing and equity arena. Changes in lifestyle and personal situations can occur quickly and dramatically. Thus, good real estate planning now is one of the most important issues for financial security. Seniors will want to make the wisest decision possible when selling a home, relocating or making any other real estate investment choice.

As a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) I am proud to be able to assist seniors in making wise decisions about selling their family home, buying or selling rental property and reviewing the implications of managing capital gains and estate taxes. It is critically important to understand the implications of owning Real Estate for Estate Planning purposes.

If the possibility of moving to an adult community or assisted living facility here in North or Northwest Suburbs of Chicago is a consideration, I have the ability to connect with other specialists and obtain all the resources necessary to assist today's Seniors with the local options.


I have gathered several resources just for Seniors. If you require more information on any of the below, please contact me.
