The Upside of Downsizing

Roz Byrne

Roz Byrne, a seniors’ real estate specialist, will present a seminar titled, “The Upside of Downsizing,” at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, September 16, at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Ave. Her seminar will address the concerns of moving for seniors. The public is welcome to attend the free event.

Byrne is a realtor specializing in helping retirees sell their homes. She is a 20-year veteran with RE/MAX. She earned a SRES designation which stands for Seniors Real Estate Specialist.

One of the greatest concerns for seniors after “Where am I moving to?” is “What do I do with all my stuff?” Many seniors have not bought or sold property in decades and a lot has changed in that time – legal and consumer issues, disclosure laws and technology.

Byrne’s seminar addresses:

  • a timetable for moving
  • enlisting the help of family and a network of resources to reduce clutter
  • a look at the realities of home sales in the current real estate marketplace

Many seniors have expressed a feeling of relief after attending one of Byrnes’s seminars. They are empowered with the knowledge that their home can sell and equipped with a timetable and a booklet of resources to execute the sale.
