CSHP Spotlight: Boca Raton's Michele Bellisari

Posted by: Nikki Buckelew

Specializing in seniors real estate in the retirement haven of Boca Raton, Florida and northward into the Palm Beaches has proven to be a bit of a no-brainer for Certified Senior Housing ProfessionalMichele Bellisari. Still, focusing on such a niche isn't an automatic decision for a south Florida real estate agent. The market is loaded with both full-time and part-time real estate folks targeting everything from luxury properties to condo sales.

But, in an area heavily populated by 55+ deed restricted communities, as well as independent senior living and assisted communities, Michele's day-to-day work inspired her to focus on seniors. 

“I am a big believer in finding a niche that works for you in business and am lucky to have discovered a couple of fantastic ones that I am very passionate about.”

Educators, Advocates, Real Estate Agents: In That Order

This blog post was inspired by a recent experience in our own real estate practice. As you know, we do our best to help shorten the learning curve for you by sharing the "real life stuff" that happens in the day to day lives of our members -- good, bad, and ugly!  

Someone mentioned to me recently that maybe I had “overstepped my bounds” as a real estate agent when I questioned as to why a client chose a particular senior living community over others. "You are just a real estate agent," the woman says. 

As it began, our client tells us that she has been having trouble eating right, getting around, and staying active, and that her daughter was having to take off work regularly to transport her to the doctor. She had chosen, however, to move to an independent living community offering none of these services  (meals, transportation, scheduled outings, security, etc.).

Naturally, I wanted to know if she or her daughter were aware of or had considered other options. 


Let's be clear about what our team at OKC Mature Moves considers as our professional services boundaries as Certified Senior Housing Professionals (and as human beings for that matter). We are NOT typical real estate agents only assessing how we can get a home sold or purchased. We are NOT typical sales people only thinking about how to get the fastest commission check. And we are certainly NOT "just real estate agents."

We have seen some significant changes in the lives of agents we coach and train at the Seniors Real Estate Institute. And while I would love to take credit for all to cool things happening for them in their personal and professional lives, I must say this about these particular individuals ... THEY ALL CHOSE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Month in the Life of Nikki Buckelew, SREI's CEO & Founder

Posted by: Nikki Buckelew

Today I decided to write this very free-flowing blog post today because it is the end of August and I am feeling a bit tired (but accomplished). Most of our SREI members know that I stay fairly busy and that I get a lot done in short amounts of time.

Frankly, I don’t sit idle much! I frequently get asked by people how it is that I seem to get the results I get concerning sales, coaching clients, personal fitness, etc. and I usually just turn it around and say something like, “You can do it too with some focus and intention.”
