Building Your Resource Team

Building Your Resource Team

Are you searching for a home in a Senior Living Community?

Knowing who to call and what services are available to you ahead of time will save you lots of time and worry. Think of all the service providers you use as your “team”. Include your doctors, lawyer, insurance agent, Minister or Rabbi, and more.

We’d love to be a part of your team for any real estate related matters. Plus we can help you build your team by connecting you with others as possible team members. Take advantage of our hard-earned knowledge of the area and strong relationships in our community.

We recommend creating a binder to keep all your important information in one place. This makes it convenient for you and also easier for someone else to assist you if needed. Things you might include would be information about your doctors, dentist, health insurance, home & auto insurance, lawyer contact info, etc.

In addition, there are some other local and national resources you may want to keep handy:
