Cathie's explanation was right on the mark. The SRES designation has become very popular over the last few years and I caution you to be sure that you have checked references and met with the agent several times before hiring them.
Working with seniors and their families takes a special talent and requires patience, understanding and compassion. It is one thing to have all the "knowledge" in regard to selling a seniors home but quite another to actually get in the trenches and do the hard work of sorting, letting go and moving forward WITH the client.
Most senior move management companies have agents they work with that have been "tested" with many clients. I would suggest finding a senior move manager in your area that can refer you to someone that is competent and able to work with you and your parents.
If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me at 408-300-3590 or email@example.com.
Best of luck!!!!
