January 17, 2014

LEWES, Delaware - Kathy Sperl-Bell, Broker and Bill Bell, REALTOR® and co-owners of Active Adults Realty located at 1504 Savannah Road in Lewes are pleased to announce that Debbie Shearer, REALTOR® has successfully completed the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) Designation Course. For most senior adults, the homes that they live in are their largest asset and account for most of their net worth. Completion of the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) Designation Course is an essential step for REALTORS® in understanding the distinct real estate goals, concerns and needs of seniors today.

“Boomers… what we like to call adults over the age of 50, represent over 20% of the U.S. population,” said Kathy Sperl-Bell, Broker at Active Adults Realty. “By completing this course, Debbie now knows the differences in senior housing options, from age-restricted communities to aging-in-place design concepts to alternative assisted living situations. In addition, real estate agents possessing the SRES designation can safely counsel the 50+ market on the ins and outs of reverse mortgages; the use of pensions, 401k accounts, and IRAs in real estate transactions and are therefore able to provide superior service to this portion of the population.”
