When Buying 

Finding the perfect home is an important decision for everyone, but it holds particular significance for seniors. Whether you’re transitioning into your golden years or are already comfortable in your newest chapter of life, it’s essential to choose a home that not only meets your current needs but also supports your lifestyle and well-being in the years to come. 

In today’s fast-paced, always-evolving world there’s a lot more that goes into finding and buying a home than many people realize. As a professional expert in the home buying process, a real estate agent can guide you through your purchase from start to finish – allowing you to house hunt with confidence. 

When Selling

Just like buying, selling a home is no small task. For seniors, the process of preparing your home for sale, listing it, and finally getting ready to move can be overwhelming, and in some cases, it may tempt you to delay selling altogether. However, a full-service real estate agent who has a dedicated process for supporting seniors (like the Lino Arci Team) can alleviate all the stresses and hassles of selling. 

With the help of an agent, you can downsize to a smaller, easier-to-manage home or wherever you may be headed next with ease. 

What Makes a Great Real Estate Agent for Seniors 

Seniors often have unique requirements when it comes to buying or selling a home, and the right real estate agent will have an in-depth understanding of these needs and the various challenges seniors face when dealing with real estate transactions. They can provide tailored advice and resources, ensuring a smoother process and transition.

Finding an Agent

Now that we’ve covered the advantages of working with a senior-focused real estate agent, here are some things to look out for as you speak with potential agents that you may choose to work with. 


In an always-shifting real estate market like the Greater Toronto Area, experience counts for a lot. Look for agents who have a proven track record spanning multiple years or even decades, especially in dealing with senior clients. An experienced agent is likely to be familiar with the intricacies of helping seniors buy or sell a home. They understand the emotional aspects involved and possess the expertise to navigate potential challenges that may arise during the process.

Feedback & Referrals

Before committing to an agent, take the time to research a wide range of options and if possible, seek referrals from family and friends. Reading online reviews, talking to past clients, and checking testimonials can provide valuable insights into an agent’s reputation and reliability. Positive feedback from other seniors who have had similar real estate experiences can instill confidence in the chosen agent.
