Making the decision to move can be difficult. Sharing the reasons for moving, be they financial, care-related or other, can help your Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) provide you with a broad array of options to make the process as easy as possible.
Many seniors can take heart in knowing their next move is to the home of an adult child. Other seniors and their families face the task of selecting a home which will meet their needs in terms of care, community and comfort.
Choosing housing that meets your family’s current needs, and anticipates future needs, can be a challenge. Further, it can require a significant financial investment depending on the level of care desired.
Your SERS can help you navigate this process. They can:
Familiarize you with the various types of seniors housing available in your area
Suggest important questions to ask when you’re visiting various housing options.
Refer you to other professionals who can help you understand and compare the true cost of each option, determine which options are affordable based on your financial situation, and examine the legal contracts involved in the process.
Suggest a geriatric case manager to help determine the parent’s needs.
If you are considering making a move and need real estate services, make sure you seek out a Senior Real Estate Specialist in your area. They will have the skills, knowledge and resources to assist you. If you need help finding a SRES in your area, don’t hesitate to contact me and I will find one for you.

"I would be extremely happy to highly recommend Julie Cosgrove and her wonderful staff at Keller and Williams to ANYONE who was looking for assistance with either buying or selling a home, especially for help - with the now popular - short selling of a home; as was the case for our family. Julie Cosgrove is a Tiger. She and her staff were unrelenting when it came to dealing with the banks on our behalf. She rescinded the banks foreclosure attempts on three separate occasions and always kept our best interests at heart. Mrs. Cosgrove was a joy to work with. Always positive and highly motivated, this professional and her staff are well deserving of the highest recommendation in the City that can be given by anyone. There is NOWHERE ELSE that we would recommend anyone to go other than to see Julie Cosgrove over at Keller and Williams. This Woman is a rock-star, and despite the problems that we had with the banks, she never let them slow our short-sale down. She is awesome!"
