In recent months I have become aware of a valuable community resource that has been a well-kept secret for too long. I am talking about VA Veterans Pension and Survivors Pension benefits.
In the Fall of 2018 Laureate Group executives met with Dan Driscoll, Department Service Officer with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and learned about VA benefits available to many Veterans and their spouses. It seemed logical to us at the time that because the VFW is so well known everyone likely understands the resources they and other Service Organizations offer. Boy were we wrong.Read More

I recently organized a seminar at Boerner Botanical Gardens where I had the opportunity to hear directly from those who attended…and I learned a lot!
I wanted to get information out to the seniors and their children who attended by offering several speakers and vendors who are connected in some way to moving from the home they love. I listened closely to questions and comments of the attendees only to find that there are hidden feelings and emotions which stay below the surface. The speakers were superb, covering the home selling process, downsizing, what to do with your money after the sale, how to navigate long-term care and hospice, Medicare supplemental options, and conversations between the adult child and parent when it come to moving from the home they love. We had vendors specializing in basement repair, home inspections, staging, and in home care; seniors helping seniors. It was the last speaker and topic that truly resonated with me and all who attended!Read More

In this article I break down my knowledge of the housing market and advice for baby boomers on selling their homes. The best strategy is to look to the past to help create your future in the most advantageous way possible. There are two factors that will play into housing values as we move into 2017 and beyond; inventory and interest rates (inflation). My advice in this article is directed to boomers. We as 55-70 year old boomers should have a different strategy from our younger counter parts. So many clients have waited too long and then made their move under duress or circumstances never planned for, such as health changes. We want to be in charge of our lifestyle rather than waiting for other issues to decide for us.Read More
