More often than not, later in life moves can be complex. They involve a myriad of emotions and numerous decisions. Simply knowing or finding out what options exist - whether it be downsizing to a smaller home/townhome or condo, moving in with another family member, moving to a retirement home or other rental apartment, or staying put (with or without renovating the existing home) can be overwhelming.  In southern Ontario, with over 75,000 REALTORS to choose from, Marion is 1 of a handful of Lifestyle 55+ Master Real Estate Agents and Senior Real Estate Specialists whose primary focus is on Senior transitions. With her training and expertise, Marion has access to a full complement of resources, an extensive network of exceptional specialists and who can present Seniors and their families with solutions.   Contact Marion to discover your options!

As a Lifestyle 55+ Master and Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) my goal is to help Seniors make their decisions about their future housing by choice rather then by circumstances. I am uniquely qualified to assist the 55+ market in housing sales and purchases by having additional education and experience helping seniors and their families with later-in-life real estate transactions.  I also draw upon the expertise of a network of exceptional specialists that include estate planners, accountants, elder-care lawyers, aging in place contractors and others who are familiar with local community resources and services. I work with seniors and their families as they navigate the maze of financial, legal and emotional issues that accompany the sale of a home and assist Boomers in relocating to the home of their future.  In some cases, Seniors may make the choice to stay put and a move is not in the foreseeable future for them - that's OK too.

Senior Fact!

According to the 2021 census by Statistics Canada, the baby boomer generation, or those between the ages of 56 and 75 is the largest population in Canada at almost 25 per cent. In Halton older adults aged 65 and over make up 16 per cent of the population. Burlington skews at 20.9 per cent compared to Oakville at 15.7 per cent, Halton Hills' 15 per cent and Milton at 9.9 per cent. 

What Senior's may be asking themselves:

  • Should I sell my home, and if so, when?
  • Are there houses out there that would suit my needs better, both now and in the future?
  • I haven't sold a house in decades. What's changed since then?
  • If I move, what is involved? What can I do with all my stuff?
  • If I want to stay in my home but it needs some modifications, what are my options?
  • If I want to stay in my home but need money to do so, what are my options?

The primary goal of a Lifestyle 55+ Master

The primary goal of a Lifestyle 55+ Master is to assist seniors in coming to the best decision for their circumstances, which may or may not involve the sale of their home.

Lifestyle 55+ Masters believe that Seniors and their families have the right to:

  • the highest standards of professional service from a REALTOR
  • work with a professional whose mandate is to help them come to the best decision for them, even if it means the senior stays in their own home
  • work with a professional who has close ties to a Network of Exceptional Specialists
  • work with a professional who will take the stress, guilt and anxiety out of the decision
  • work with a professional who will allow seniors to choose which services they avail themselves of, and pay for only the services they require
  • work with highly trained, experienced REALTORS who understand the challenges that seniors and their families are going through
  • work with a professional who regularly participates in training to enhance their skill set
  • be treated with respect and to be dealt with in an ethical manner

  Marion was very quick to respond, whether it was by email, phone call or text. She was readily available and able to set up viewings even on short notice. And we highly appreciate her working to help purchase our home during the holidays (Christmas eve and Boxing Day)! She is conscientious and very professional. Glad to have had her as our agent.
