A designation that some agents once called surplus to requirements is increasingly seen as the best way for agents to satisfy a growing and lucrative end of the home-buying market

    I am part of a group called the Master- ASA which is an elite off shoot of the ASA Seniors Real Estate Program. It is the only Canadian Program that trains Realtors in the differences in working with seniors. With some 2000 members, the ASA has a significant presence in the professions that serve seniors with graduates of the program including accountants, lawyers, financial planners, retirement residence managers, mortgage professionals etc. We work closely with people in many professions including lawyers, senior move managers, financial planners, accountants, bank managers, estate planners, auctioneers, aging in place contractors etc. As a Master-ASA we have the requirements of longevity, education, experience, contribution, as established Network of Exceptional Specialists and so much more.
    Our mission is to facilitate late in life moves in such a way as to ensure that senior adult clients and their families have access to professionals with a full appreciation for the unique circumstances occurring in the transactions involving older adults and the competency to ensure their successful completion.

    What is with our industry leaders calling sales representatives Agents. Are we AGENTS or Are We Sales Representatives.

    Are we agents? Certainly not, never have been. This is a long overdue recognition change in which our industry leaders should be demonstrating leadership. We are "sales representatives", sometimes buyer representatives, other times seller representatives. At all times we are "representatives."
