The Senior Advantage Real Estate Council (SAREC) on Friday announced a new program that aims to enable senior home buyers and sellers to electronically verify the professional and state licensing status of their Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designees.

Through an agreement with SquareTrade, a provider of online trust infrastructure, the SRES Client Assurance program will initially be offered in the 10 states with the largest contingents of SRES designees, and is expected to phase in nationwide during 2005.

Through the SRES Client Assurance program, SRES designees will be able to display a dynamic seal powered by SquareTrade’s patented technology on designee’s Web sites verifying their membership in the Realtor organization, their SRES designation, their status as a real estate licensee, and the presence of any state-registered complaints.

A national program since 1998, the Council now has Seniors Real Estate Specialists in all 50 states and Canada and adds hundreds of new members every month.

SAREC is owned by Real Estate Business Services Inc. (REBS), a subsidiary of the California Association of Realtors.
