Senior's Real Estate Specialist

John Wiley Earns NAR Designation in Seniors Real Estate

Fort Myers, —John Wiley with Jones & Co Realty, has earned the nationally recognized Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES)®  designation from the Seniors Real Estate Specialist Council of the National Association of Realtors®. Those Realtors® who carry the SRES designation are specially qualified to address the real estate needs of those age 50+.

John Wiley joins more than 15,000 real estate professionals in North America who have earned the SRES® designation.  All were required to successfully complete a comprehensive course in understanding the needs, considerations, and goals of real estate buyers and sellers aged 55 and older.

SRES designees recognize that a home is often the largest and most precious asset that Baby Boomers and 50+ have. Thus, SRES designees bring a unique approach to each transaction and interaction with clients. They not only offer a deep knowledge of real estate and the local and economic issues shaping market trends, but they’re also educated on issues of particular concern to 50+ clients.

“Working with seniors to meet their housing needs requires an expert understanding of their lifestyle and financial needs, and the SRES® designation means that a Realtor® has that understanding,” said John Wiley. “Whether they are buying, selling, relocating or refinancing, seniors can be confident that a Realtor® designated SRES® will be able to help them every step of the way.” Their special skills help 50+ buyers and sellers look at the big picture, factoring in financial issues and current and future care needs, to ensure that each client arrives at the best decision about selling a property and finding a new home.

Such 50+ real estate specialized Realtors® also recognize the emotional dimension associated with selling a beloved family property and approach clients and family members with patience and empathy. “As our population ages and the real estate market grows in complexity and size, it makes sense for us to focus more deeply on the changing concerns and priorities of those 50 years and older”.

SRES® Council, founded in 2007, is the world's largest association of real estate professionals focusing specifically on representing senior clients in real estate transactions. There are more than 15,000 active members of the organization world-wide. 

The National Association of Realtors®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing more than 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
