Linda Smith, a REALTOR® and sales associate with RE/MAX Heritage Properties, recently earned certification as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).
The SRES® designation prepares real estate professionals to approach mature clients with the best options and information when buying or selling a home. Candidates are required to complete a two-day course and remain in good standing with NAR.
Smith joined RE/MAX Heritage Properties in 2016. Before that, she spent more than 20 years working in business management and marketing. Smith works with homebuyers and sellers throughout northwest New Jersey, including Morris, Warren and Sussex counties, with a specific concentration in Roxbury and Mt. Olive Townships.
“Selling a home can be an emotional time, potentially involving many other life decisions. The SRES® course enhanced my knowledge in working with mature clients, particularly to minimize the complexities of the selling process while looking out for their best interests during this transitional time,” said Smith. “Through personal experience selling my parent’s home, I know first-hand how to navigate through some tough decisions and to be the resource my clients need to make the process less stressful and more successful.”
In addition to the SRES®, Smith holds the e-PRO® and Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) certifications from the NAR. She is also a Certified Probate Specialist. Smith has earned several awards throughout her career, including the RE/MAX 100% Club and the Circle of Excellence Award from the New Jersey Association of Realtors (NJAR).
Smith is an active member of the community, serving on the Board of Directors for the Roxbury Chamber of Commerce and as a member of the Mt. Olive Chamber of Commerce. She has also participated in fundraising activities for the Hackettstown Medical Center and as a volunteer at the Faith Kitchen in Dover.
