As a realtor, you aren’t just helping someone buy a home; you are creating a connection between that person, the home and the community in which it is located. Knowledge of the area, pricing and amenities are a must. However, being able to recommend resources that will help clients 50 plus settle into their new home will set you apart.
Clients at this stage in life are typically downsizing, may have an empty nest, and might have gone through a major life change such as divorce, death of a partner, or retirement. They are looking for a community to spend the next chapter of life in, one where they can truly enjoy their golden years.
To do this, they will need more than a home that is the right fit. They will need an active social life.
Amintro is a new platform designed exclusively for adults over 50 as an alternative and safe place to meet like-minded individuals and foster new friendships. The service matches people based on their profile and close proximity for platonic friendships.
“I always want to know the area that I’m showing a home in so that I can highlight community centers, parks and other attractions. You want your clients to not only be happy with their home but the community they’ve chosen to live in. I think Amintro is another avenue for people to explore, meet others and feel at home faster.” ~ Francesca Valente, Realtor
By connecting users to potential friends within their local area, Amintro aims to foster new friendships and combat loneliness and social isolation that is often faced in the aging population. Amintro is available online.
“When I work with a client, I get to know them quite well. This is an important part of the job because it helps you narrow down the right location and style of home for your buyer. Small talk is customary when showing homes, but I always like to delve a bit deeper. Realtors have a lot of connections, we meet many different people, and being able to help in any way you can shows that you care. Mentioning Amintro as a way to make friends and meet new people not only helps my clients, but adds value to my brand as well.” Francesca Valente.
Another plus, the more connections your clients have and the happier they are with your service, the more likely they will be to recommend you to their family and friends.
