Two members of our team, Angela Tweedie and Victoria Davis, recently earned the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation from the National Assn. of Realtors. To qualify for the SRES designation, the they completed an advanced study course that provides Realtors with specialized knowledge about the real estate needs of the fast-growing age 50-plus market.
“We’ve seen the mature homebuyer increasing activity in our region over the last several years,” said Sandy Garner, owner of the Bend, Oregon real estate company. “This is likely a result of the baby boomer generation beginning to look at retirement in a community like Bend. Having agents that specialize in this segment of the market will help us serve our clients even better.”
Tweedie, a Texas native, lived in Alaska for many years and obtained her Alaska real estate license in 2005 after a 20-year career with Nordstrom in Anchorage, following which she earned several performance awards at an Anchorage brokerage. She joined The Garner Group in 2010.
Victoria Davis has also been with The Garner Group since 2010. With an education in geology, Davis spent much of her career conducting hydrogeologic site studies and environmental site assessments triggered by real estate acquisitions, permitting or divestiture. She practiced real estate in the state of Washington before moving to Bend.
