Senior Transitions Specialist, SRES

content_wreSrTransitions_Color

Being a Senior Transitions Specialist is rooted in the desire to help others, enjoyment of the over-50 crowd and the ability to listen deeply, taking time to understand client needs. As an expert in Seattle’s eastside market, I’m familiar with communities and properties that appeal to people leaving their long-time family home in search of a new lifestyle, location or home size.

  • 55+ Communities
    One-level houses and townhomes; condominium neighborhoods with social activities onsite; small townhome neighborhoods with low maintenance yards for active lifestyles.
  • Luxury and One-Level Condos

View and high-rise buildings served by elevators or main floor master suites.  Increasing numbers of baby boomers and land shortages are creating a demand for these kinds of properties resulting in a wide range of sizes, even up to 2200+ sq. ft.

  • Single Family Ramblers

One-level homes or basement ramblers are available in some established neighborhoods with larger lots, often experiencing renewal through home renovations.

  • Cottage Home Communities

Also called zero-lot line or patio homes, over the past 15 years or so these single family communities have popped up with 2-3 bedroom homes from 1500 – 1900 sq. ft. They’re sited on small lots, 3000 – 4500 sq. ft., often with garages accessed from back alleys creating charming street appeal.  Ideal locations are walkable to neighborhood shopping and eateries.  Small fenced patio gardens are right-sized for gardeners and family BBQ’s.
