After over 30 years as a financial adviser, advocating for and helping individuals and families build financial security, Robyn retired. However, she was not yet ready to stop working and helping individuals and families.
After buying and selling several homes, she realized how much she did not know about the real estate process. It was a little unnerving because for many individuals, a home is their largest asset. In fact, it is more than just a financial asset. A home houses your memories. A home is representative of your hopes, dreams, and accomplishments. As a financial asset, it can grow equity for you. In a volatile market or during challenging times, the equity in a home can help bolster your financial security.
Robyn went back to school and learned everything she could. As an asset, and for all that a home represents, she believes individuals should work with an advocate and should follow the basic investment principles of “Buy low, sell high” and avoid making a bad investment. Robyn wants to earn the right to be that advocate.
In 2008 Robyn received a phone call that would impact her market focus. Her Dad had just been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and he was the caregiver for her Mom who had Dementia. As she and her brothers and sisters took on the caregiving role, she learned firsthand the struggles of being a caregiver, the challenges of finding alternative housing, and selling a property from an estate. It forever changed her to be driven to help Seniors and their adult children navigate housing and living situations for the Senior community.
The mantra of K&R Home Transitions is to Educate, Communicate and Advocate and Robyn takes that to heart with every Senior and their family that she works with.
In addition to being a broker associate and Realtor®, she is Senior Real Estate Specialist, A Probate Real Estate Specialist, a Chartered Advisor for Senior Living, and a Certified Living In Place Professional. She has several other Real Estate and Financial designations and is a graduate of James Madison University in Harrisonburg VA.
