Proud Founders of Senior Stay or Go™

Comprehensive Services for Seniors

Most older adults wish to stay in their homes as long as they can. However, in some cases, a move becomes necessary due to financial or health challenges. Some active adults choose to move as they age, downsizing to a smaller home or relocating to a senior residential community. No matter the reasons for a home sale, it can be an overwhelming experience for those involved. There are many things to consider – from selling or donating unwanted furnishings and preparing the property to sell, to dealing with various professionals and finding a new home.

We specialize in assisting seniors and their families through the sale of a home by serving as a single point of contact for the comprehensive services.

Testimonials

What our clients are saying…

During this time of giving special thanks my husband and I wanted you to know how thankful we are for the referral of Ron and Patti by Craig Rotondelli to your firm. Since we live in the Chicago area it was more then meaningful for us to feel secure in the people handling the sale of our friend’s condo.

Ron and Patti laid the preliminary steps out via phone calls and emails and in just a very short time we were on our way. I felt we were treated in a friendly manner albeit most professional. It’s nice to be treated as a functioning adult (although there is snow on the rooftop) rather than a non-entity. They have a special touch with respect to the older person; but, then again, I’m sure you knew that...

We were most impressed when they called to thank us for choosing them to represent us in the sale. Without them, the sale would not have happened so quickly. Hope does spring eternal. And, thank you!

Blanche & Ron O., Chicago, IL
Ron and Patti did a terrific job on a difficult court-approved probate/conservatorship sale. Having them on our team makes the entire procedure flawless. Their competency, professionalism and wonderful personalities are always appreciated.
Lori D. Bolander, Attorney, San Diego, CA
My Mother-in-law moved into Merrill Gardens in November last year. We contacted Ron and Patti and told them that we wanted to sell her La Costa home after the beginning of this year. We had several antiques that we needed to have appraised and sold or moved to storage before we could put the home on the market. Ron and Patti had a team of people to call on to help us. They made appointments for me to meet with several antique appraisers. They called a contractor that gave us bids on fixing up the property, painting, etc. They arranged to have the carpets cleaned and walls painted. They had another person who staged the home with new furnishings. They also arranged for the removal of the remaining furniture and items we did not want once the home was sold. When the townhome went on the market we received 8 offers within the first 2 days, all were over the asking price except for one.

My husband, T.J. and I were extremely happy with Ron and Patti's service and help in dealing with a stressful real estate sale. We highly recommend them and if any of your participants would like to contact us we would be happy to discuss our experiences. Please thank Ron and Patti for us and give them our best.

Sherry & T.J., San Diego, CA
It is with overwhelming pleasure that my wife and I express our gratitude for the services of Realtors Ron Greenwald and Patti Gerke. We entered the sellers market with trepidation, uncertain if or how long it might take to sell our home. We asked them if they could sell our home in 90 days and were assured they could do it.

Due to their expertise – and the incredible team of people they have working for them – namely the photographer, escrow services group, sign installer, repairmen, etc. – they did an incredible job. Our home sold in 6 days and we had 12 offers to select from.

Ron and Patti negotiate on behalf of their clients and shields clients from the muddled details which alleviates burdensome stress at a time which is wrought with emotion. Most people have conflicting emotions about whether or not one is ready to sell their home. They could not have made it easier for us.

If you are looking for a solid professional to work with in either selling or buying Real Estate, we could not recommend Realtors Ron Greenwald and Patti Gerke with more enthusiasm!

Mr. & Mrs. B. J. P, San Diego, CA
Realizing that we had many issues to get the home listed and sold such as…

1. Reverse mortgage;
2. Probate;
3. Out of town legal team and the possible short sale payout to the mortgage holder

I greatly appreciate the hard work, thorough attention to detail, constant updates regarding marketing the home, probate timelines, and attorney correspondence, and most of all, digging in there on a Saturday to get the home cleared of the stuff for the new owner to move in on time.

As Jerry was a former friend of mine, friend of the family and I was appointed as executor of the estate, the probate process was and is quite challenging. It was a pleasure to have you as part of our team. We certainly would recommend you to others in need of a Probate Real Estate agent.

Ed B., San Diego, CA
I am very pleased to write this letter of recommendation for my real estate agents Ron Greenwald and Patti Gerke. They have recently assisted my family and I through the long and complicated short sale process and allowed us to get out from underneath the burden of our former home. The close of the house was the final chapter of a very difficult time for my family that included the collapse of my small business. Ron and Patti offered a tremendous amount of experience and expertise in real estate and short sales that brought us peace of mind through the process.

I was confident that what they promised would happen, and it did!

I would strongly recommend them with the highest degree of confidence to anyone that is in need of experienced and reputable real estate professionals.

Daniel M.H., happy client
I have worked with Ron and Patti on several projects, and the first word that comes to mind when I think of them is “trustworthy”. They care about others’ success and work for the benefit of all in the group. They are connected to EVERYBODY!

Over time, I have come to see them as friends because the way they do business engenders the trust and integrity that I want in my friends. Others who have done business with them have told me how they went way out of their way to protect the clients’ interests. On top of all that, they are very nice and I feel very comfortable working with them.

I highly recommend them for anyone’s real estate needs.
