If you are a senior who is thinking about downsizing to a smaller home or maybe moving to a retirement community, there are many things to consider.

One of the first things you will want to do is contact someone who knows about the details of downsizing for seniors. That someone is Tom Degler of KW Elite Keller Williams.

Tom is a Senior Real Estate Specialist and Certified Senior Advisor who has earned designation through the Society of Senior Advisors. He has been a realtor with Keller Williams for 13 years.

“It’s always a good idea to plan your retirement living situation before you get forced into it from illness, having a fall or mobility issues,” says Tom.

Many times seniors wait too long to find a home that fits their needs. They may want to stay in the home they have lived in for many years, but that home may have the risk of stairs, maintenance issues, or doesn’t let them live life comfortably and safely.

“I understand how seniors feel, because I am a senior too. It can be very difficult to give up your independence, but it’s even more important to feel safe and secure. Many people thrive in an environment where they have lots of friends and a social life with activities,” says Tom.

It can seem overwhelming to you, but Tom has the resources to handle all the details of making that move. As a realtor, he can help you prepare your home for sale, find a new home and get everything taken care of with ease. He works with professionals who are known as “move management specialists” that work with you and your family to streamline the process.

As a Certified Senior Advisor, Tom can guide you through planning considerations such as your health and mobility, your finances and what you can afford, your family and support system, community involvement and activities, hobbies and leisure, church, lifestyle preferences and timing for when you might want to move. Often people decide to make a move after they have been widowed and do not want to be alone.

Tom will meet with you and your family to talk about all the options you have and what will work best for you. It’s always your choice and Tom can help you make the best choice for you. To find out more, call Tom Degler at KW Elite Keller Williams at 717-553-2500 or email to
