(Courtesy of Prominent Properties) Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, one of New Jersey’s leading luxury real estate firms, recently announced that Sales Associate Maxine Harelick has earned the Seniors Real Estate Specialist® designation from the Seniors Real Estate Specialist Council of the National Association of Realtors®.

The SRES® designation is bestowed to REALTORS® who complete in-depth training in a wide variety of topics including senior housing options, reverse mortgages, downsizing and more. The SRES® Council promotes member success by providing high-quality training and tools necessary to position the SRES® designee as the trusted real estate resource for the senior market.

“The SRES® designation solidified and enhanced the skills I had already developed to serve this segment of my clientele,” said Harelick, sales associate for Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. “As a member of the SRES® Council, I have access to numerous resources that will enable me to better serve my mature clientele. Whether it be to downsize or rightsize, clients can view me as a trusted resource, guiding them every step of the way.”

A Bergen County native, Harelick combines her 25-plus years of experience as a successful attorney with a passion for helping real estate clients achieve their goals. Her legal career sharpened the negotiation, analytical and communication skills she utilizes to advocate for both buyers and sellers.

As a longtime Fair Lawn resident, Harelick has in-depth knowledge of the community and surrounding towns, which together with her resourceful nature and solution-oriented approach, make her an invaluable asset to her clients.
