We had a chance to talk to Terri Monrad, a Certified Senior Housing Professional with Coldwell Banker Good Life:
“I’ve helped over 200 seniors and their families make a positive lifestyle move. The best part of what I do is getting to know my clients, their families, their stories and dreams, and how they see the next chapter of their lives. Most clients have not bought or sold a property in 20, 30 or as much as 50 years. The real estate process is much more complex and it takes some special handholding and reassurance. What is often surprising to many older sellers is the quick pace and need for the home to be ‘buyer ready’ in order to get the best price. But making a late-in-life move is more than the real estate transaction.
As a certified senior housing professional, my practice is built on strong relationships, trust and great communication. I specialize in helping older adults simplify their living situation. My number one priority is to make the transition as smooth and efficient as possible so that my clients (and their families) can get on with enjoying their new home and lifestyle.
Each client and family is different. Out of town children may need help coordinating moving services, estate liquidators for the move or help with finding home maintenance and service companies to get their parents’ home ready for sale and to bring top dollar. We work together as a team. Some clients need help navigating the many choices of senior housing options available to them. For some, the challenge can be affordability as costs can be quite staggering. So the best option may be to stay put with in-home services. However, there are lower cost alternatives coming to the area such as those offering à la carte services in more modest apartments and cooperative communities where residents own a share of the cooperative, live independently and have the ability to age in place in a maintenance-free home, contracting services when and if they need them.”
