Even-though I am not quite a senior (I am 44), I have been working with some buyers and sellers who are over 50 recently and have wanted to better serve them in their real estate needs. That is why I have studied and have received my SRES Designation from the National Association of Realtors; SRES stands for Seniors Real Estate Specialist. I have completed 12 hours of training and testing to qualify for this official designation. More can be found in this video from NAR:
