Local Realtor® Earns National Designation To Assist Senior Home Buyers & Sellers

Amy Whetro

POWELL, Ohio / July 2, 2019 — Weichert, Realtors® – Triumph Group is proud to announce that Amy Whetro has been named a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) by the National Association of Realtors.

Whetro is a licensed real estate agent at the Powell-based Weichert® affiliate.

“It truly is an honor to be recognized as a real estate professional who is committed to working with seniors to address their specific home buying or selling needs,” said Whetro. “I learned a great deal about the unique real estate challenges seniors face while working towards my SRES designation. I definitely plan to use all that I learned to help senior home buyers and sellers through this transition.”

Seniors Real Estate Specialists are Realtors that are uniquely qualified to address the needs of home buyers and sellers over the age of 50.

Whetro earned the SRES designation after completing intensive specialized training covering a variety of senior topics, including: how best to work with baby boomers, generational marketing, use and benefits of reverse mortgages, and assembling a team of experts to assist senior clients.

The highly-coveted national designation – which only 16,00 real estate professionals world-wide have earned – is designed to develop business-building skills and resources to better serve the senior real estate market by expanding knowledge of how life stages impact real estate choices.

The National Association of Realtors created the SRES designation as a way to provide a comprehensive foundation of skill development, training and resources to help real estate professionals better represent clients over age 50 through major financial and lifestyle transitions in relocating, refinancing or selling the family home.

“Amy is a highly decorated Realtor who is willing to go the extra mile to ensure her clients receive the best real estate service in the area,” said Steve Wilke, the broker/owner of Weichert, Realtors® – Triumph Group. “Obtaining her SRES designation further demonstrates how dedicated Amy is to her profession.”

Whetro lives in Delaware, Ohio.
