About Mary Stevenson
I am a Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (or SRES® designee) a certified Realtor® with training and experience in senior real estate. SRES® designees understand the unique financial and lifestyle needs of adults over 50, whether they’re considering retiring, downsizing, or joining an active adult community.
In my 37 years of working closely with seniors in home health physical therapy, I've had the privilege of witnessing the stories, wisdom and resilience that come with age. These experiences have inspired me to extend my commitment to seniors beyond healthcare, leading me to specialize in real estate with a focus on serving the unique needs of this cherished and often overlooked community.
For me, it's not just about transactions and business numbers. It's about connecting with hearts and with a certain kind of story. Seniors often find themselves at a crossroads, where the desire for comfort and familiarity clashes with the practicalities of housing transitions. Families may not always see eye to eye on what's best for their loved ones, adding another layer of complexity.
My approach is rooted in CARE—Compassion, Attention, Respect, and Empathy. These are not just words but guiding principles that shape every interaction. Having earned the SRES and Certified Seniors Housing Professional designations, I have equipped myself with the knowledge needed to navigate the intricacies of real estate transactions involving seniors.
One example of how my expertise and personalized commitment stand out. One client entrusted me with the journey from inheriting a friend's property to the final steps of closing probate. Beyond the typical real estate services, I provided emotional and logistical support during the cleanout and cleanup phases. It wasn't just about selling a house; it was about facilitating a seamless move that respected the memories embedded in those walls.
Listening is my superpower, and problem-solving is my forte. I meet seniors where they are, understanding that each individual's journey is unique. I serve as a bridge, connecting clients to resources that make their move smoother and more comfortable. In addition to overseeing a physical move, I do my utmost to honor the dignity and well-being of people who are facing a significant life transition.
When you choose me as your Realtor, you're not just getting a professional with a designation. You're gaining a partner who understands your unique needs, values your stories, and is dedicated to making your real estate transition a positive and memorable chapter in your life.
