Telephone: Ring – Ring
Susan: Good Morning; this is Susan Compagner of the Compagner Real Estate Consulting Group. How may I help you?
Client: I am a senior citizen and thinking of selling my home. My prior neighbor, Bob, said you sold his home last year and I wanted to know if you are taking new clients? I have interviewed a lot of Realtors who work with Seniors and was wondering what makes you different?
Susan: Yes, I remember Bob & his family well. As he probably mentioned, my team and I are not traditional Realtors. Our vision is to help you achieve your Real Estate dreams and goals in a caring, trustworthy manner. As a graduate of the SRES® Program, it is my mission to help seniors and their families navigate the maze of financial, legal and emotional issues that accompany the sale of their home.
Client: What is the SRES® Program?
Susan: SRES® is a program which maintains a professional network of professionals to assist aged 50+ buyers and sellers who need help with the various steps of the sale and move, offering help on these and other matters. We offer a deep knowledge of Real Estate transactions and the local and economic issues shaping market trends. We are educated on issues of particular concern to aged 50+ clients. such as the decision to sell, mortgage options, and counselors that can look at ways to use the home’s equity to allow a senior to remain in their home if preferred.
One compelling reason to choose an SRES® designee is that you will gain access to the SRES® network of related service professionals. As an SRES® designee, I maintain a professional network of specialists for aged 50+ people, who can help with various steps of the sale and move including specialists such as attorneys who specialize in elder issues and estate planning, downsizing, financial planners, tax advisors with experience in elder affairs, and a wide array of other individuals versed in property, personal services, other matters.
This applies to downsizing for empty nesters, looking for a warmer climate for escaping a Michigan winter, or finding that safe place to know assistance is not far away. Selling an aged 50+ person’s most valued and valuable asset, their home, needs an SRES® designee who is sensitive to a person’s needs during what can be an emotional time of change when it comes to one’s living conditions. As we age, we demand specialists in our health needs, so why not in our housing and equity needs as well?
Client: How does that help me?
Susan: You need a REALTOR® with experience helping aged 50+ people. One who is knowledge and marketing savvy. Those qualities, along with special knowledge of managing the sale of a home for those over the age of 50, are what SRES® designees can bring to your Real Estate transaction. As an SRES® designee, I am a certified senior specialist and with knowledge related to the financial and emotional challenges of what an aged 50+ person faces when they sell a family home. I create a customized approach to market and sell your property. I will work with you to explore your housing options to ensure that your next home best serves your current and future needs. As a certified SRES® designee, I have special knowledge about everything from reverse mortgages and the importance of the uses of pensions, 401k accounts, and IRAs in Real Estate transactions.
I will also help you steer clear of loan schemes and scams that victimize aged 50+ borrowers. When you need help from other professionals, I will tap my network of specialists to put you in touch with qualified home inspectors, movers, attorneys, CPAs, and other experts. I have all the resources and knowledge to simplify the transaction and eliminate the anxiety of selling your home. So if you’re thinking of buying, selling, renting or relocating, I am your best choice for specialized help with your Real Estate transaction.
Client: That sounds just like what we need. My wife and I have had a lot of medical issues lately and find our home is no longer suitable for us to live in. We would need to make a lot of costly changes to remain in our home. We need to make a decision of whether or not to sell and all the other Realtors I spoke to just wanted to sell our home now. We need help in making that decision. When would it be available to view our home and discuss our options?
Susan: Whenever it is best for you. Let’s set the date and time that best fits your schedule. Do you have a computer? Please login to the SRES® web site – http://seniorsrealestate.com/ – where you may request their FREE booklet “Moving On Guide” that will provide you with a lot of useful information. In the meantime, let me send you some other information for you to review.

Thank you very much for contacting me & as soon as we hang up, I will contact your prior neighbor, Bob to thank him for referring you.
