It is no secret that life moves rather quickly, with major financial and lifestyle transitions and around every corner. Changes like relocating to a new area, refinancing, or even selling the family home can feel overwhelming, but as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), Suzanne Treudt is dedicated to making your experience as seamless and stress-free as possible.
Suzanne knows how detailed the process can be when selling your elderly parents’ home, from finding vendors to help downsize their belongings to whether you should plan a move or discuss aging in place. Why? She has first-hand experience.
As the sole caregiver of divorced elderly parents, she moved her mother with Alzheimer’s from California and her father from the Chicago south suburbs into separate facilities near her home in the Fox Valley area. Suzanne knows the challenges—the emotional and financial—that come with caring for elderly parents and you can count on her to help. Thanks to her own life experiences, she is a friend to both adult children and their parents.
Whether you’re moving to be closer to your grandchildren, fulfilling your dream of starting a bed and breakfast, downsizing to a smaller, single level home, or to improve your health, you will need an agent with the experience and knowledge to guide you.
