Do you work with Senior or Boomer real estate clients? Would you like a beautiful little resource on “Staying Sharp: Learning Throughout Life” to hand out to your clients or to add to your resource library? Here you go, a beautiful and PRINTABLE PDF version from AARP’s Educator Community Series.

You are their resource for such information (or you should be). Can you say awesome, relevant BLOG TOPICS?).
Other senior resources that may interest you and your older clients include:
