Licensed since 1985, and a Seniors Real Estate Specialist since 2013, Jeff’s unique experience makes him ideally suited to work with older adults and their families. His understanding and empathy, gained from personal experience, knowing that downsizing from your long-time home to a senior community could be an exciting as well as a stressful new chapter in life. As a Sales Advisor at Heritage Estates Independent & Assisted Living in Livermore for six years, Jeff helped hundreds of older adults successfully transition into a safe, secure, and social environment, working closely with them, their families, moving companies, realtors, to help coordinate the move.

Jeff will not only sell your home and help with the downsizing process, but even more importantly, could also describe what an average day will be like in your new community. Jeff is intimately familiar with the senior communities in the Tri-Valley, and will consult with you and your family as to the advantages and disadvantages of various communities, before you put your home on the market. Jeff is also familiar with various “below market rent” senior living options. Even with the equity in the bank from the sale of a home, many seniors can still quality for “low income” or “below market rent” housing. Few if any Realtors, have that in-depth knowledge of the local senior living marketplace. Jeff likes to say that “anyone could sell your home, but how many realtors can explain the day to day rhythms of senior living.” Jeff is even available to tour communities with seniors and their families as your consultant, using his extensive experience in Senior Living to suggest advising families to ask questions that they might not think of to ask.

I love working with seniors.  Working with clients who have lived in their homes for 30, 40, even 50 or more years requires patience and understanding, as many times, the move is for health reasons, leaving your longtime home and memories, with the senior wondering how will they downsize and will my independence be impacted?  I have spent my career helping seniors answer those, and many other questions, whether they are downsizing to a smaller home or moving to a senior community, and have earned the professional designation “Seniors Real Estate Specialist.
