Cary, NC, United States, 2006/11/30 - Local seniors seeking advice about their real estate portfolios can now turn to Cary NC real estate brokerage president Mike Montpetit who was recently awarded the nationally recognized Senior Real Estate Specialist designation.
This month, Mike Montpetit, president of Cary NC real estate firm Town and Country Realty Inc., was awarded the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation by the Senior Advantage Real Estate Council. As a Seniors Real Estate Specialist, Montpetit is certified to assist seniors in making wise decisions about the real estate issues unique to those in their retirement years.
Introduced in 1997 by the Senior Advantage Real Estate Council, the SRES designation is awarded to realtors who make seniors an important focus of their business and demonstrate the requisite knowledge, experience and expertise to earn the nationally recognized designation.
“It concerns me that seniors in Cary could be targets for some of the unscrupulous profiteers out there,” says Montpetit. “I felt it was important that seniors here in Cary have someone they can count on beyond a doubt for honest, factual advice about some the most important decisions they’ll make during their retirement years.”
In addition to the Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation, Montpetit holds 11 different designations including an MBA, Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, and Accredited Buyer Representative.
Montpetit is a third generation Cary NC real estate professional. His grandfather’s brokerage, Crown Realty, sold homes to many of the now retired couples that Montpetit consults with today about options for selling their home, buying rental property, obtaining reverse mortgages, and managing capital gains taxes.
“Cary has a long tradition of respecting and providing outstanding services for seniors in the community,” says Montpetit. “Earning the SRES designation is how I’m doing my part to uphold Cary’s long-standing family values.” An active member in the community, Montpetit also volunteers for the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity and at the Cary Academy.
Seniors with questions about how to most effectively manage the equity in their homes or concerns about options for selling properties can contact Montpetit directly at 919-786-7776 to schedule a free consultation. “My goal is to help every Cary senior realize the most enjoyment from their retirement years by showing them how to effectively manage their real estate portfolio,” says Montpetit. “The future is bright; there are more choices and options for seniors today than ever before.”
