When I opened this email, it made my day!
“Hello”, it began, “I have a tattered article from Time Magazine that features you and talks about your SRES designation. When it appeared in 2006 it made me ponder a career in real estate with a service aspect I felt was needed (I was, and still am, dealing with aging parents and neighbors on a daily basis.) I quit my corporate job and obtained my real estate license in July 2009…today I rediscovered your article. I was wondering if the SRES designation is still serving you well and if you feel it would be beneficial to someone just getting started in the industry? Any thoughts you could offer would be most welcome.”
“Yes Claire”, I responded,” the SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) designation has been very helpful and you sound to me like the perfect candidate!” I encouraged her to focus her real estate practice on the 55+ client and to please stay in touch. I did a search and found that this article is still available online – Special Agents – TIME.
