Strategies for Serving Seniors

Denver, CO, October 18, 2012 – Kay Bottoms, a top performing REALTOR serving home sellers and buyers in the Denver Tech area of Denver, CO, and an agent at Coldwell Banker Residential, recently attended a half-day training focused on serving senior adult home owners in the Denver area. The course titled 5 Strategies for Serving Seniors taught by Nikki Buckelew, President and Founder of the Seniors Real Estate Institute, and Michele Moon, a local Denver REALTOR and Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), provided real estate agents with insights and tools for assisting older adults when selling or purchasing property.

“As our population ages, more and more people are looking to their REALTOR to guide and direct them as they navigate moves which can be far more complex than typical moves. Older adult homeowners often face the challenge of downsizing which is not only physically exhausting, but also emotionally taxing. When real estate agents are equipped to handle the potential complexities involved in late in life moves, they can help reduce the stress experienced by clients and their families,” says Buckelew. The October 18th course was hosted by the Keller Williams Realty Denver Tech market center in Englewood, but open to agents from other brokerages as well. “We believe that it is critical that our agents be equipped to handle transactions involving senior adult homeowners. Our office is committed to offering education around senior housing and will continue to have trainings such as this to insure that seniors are served at the highest level by our agent partners,” remarked Tony Carnesi, the Team Leader at Keller Williams Realty DTC.

Topics covered in the 5 Strategies for Serving Seniors course included understanding the various senior housing options available, challenges faced by older adult clients and their families, services available to assist downsizing seniors, and considerations to be aware of when working with frail older adults. Kay has been in the real estate industry since 2006 and is a Senior Real Estate Specialist and has served hundreds of families in her community and surrounding area and looks forward to helping many more senior clients.
