Lisa (Parrett) Treadwell Gains Senior Real Estate Specialist Credentials
December 11, 2013
I recently journeyed to San Antonio for a few days to earn my Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) certification from the National Association of REALTORS. This, combined with my Certified Senior Housing Professional (CSHP) designation from The Seniors Real Estate Institute, continues to strengthen my resolve to provide the utmost service to seniors, boomers, and the family caregivers and adult children of seniors who find themselves in need of a real estate professional dedicated to helping with the sale of a family home and the complete late-in-life transition from a large home to a smaller one. If you or a loved one lives in the Indianapolis area, I’d be honored to help! – Lisa (Parrett) Treadwell.

Indianapolis REALTOR
Awarded Senior Real Estate Specialist Designation
Indianapolis,
IN (Dec. 9, 2013): Lisa (Parrett) Treadwell, Team Leader of The Indy
Real Estate Experts of Keller Williams Realty in Indianapolis, was
recently awarded the designation of Senior Real Estate Specialist
(SRES) from the National Association of Realtors (NAR). The
declaration of expertise and excellence is considered one of the most
important ways for consumers – specifically home buyers and sellers
– to recognize a real estate agent with specific training in
serving senior citizens or baby boomers over the age of 55.
“As
an individual REALTOR – and as the Team Leader of The Indy Real
Estate Experts – helping to educate and super-serve seniors and/or
their caregiver families in the sale of a family home and move to a
smaller home has become a passion,” says Parrett-Treadwell. “Like
a lot of people in the senior industry, I began to focus my efforts
on the senior real estate market after a personal experience with a
special senior in my life – my grandma. In her last days, I visited
her as often as possible. Seeing her so vulnerable made me realize
there is an entire demographic that is rarely spoken of, and they
need help.”
To be
considered for the designation, Parrett-Treadwell was required to
attend a rigorous two-day educational course in San Antonio, Texas
and pass a strict examination. The course looks at key differences in
housing options, from age-restricted communities to age-in-place
design to assisted living; applications of the Housing for Older
Persons Act (HOPA); the ins and outs of reverse mortgages; the use of
pensions, 401k accounts, and IRAs in real estate transactions; and
developing a team of senior specialists, including estate planners,
reverse mortgage lenders, clutter and staging specialists, and more.
“Adults
aged 50+ represent more than 20% of the U.S. population. 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,” according to the NAR.
