ARLINGTON, TN., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS congratulates Affiliate Broker Harold Haskin, ABR on obtaining his Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation.  He is a sales associate based out of the company’s Arlington branch office located at 9943 Highway 64 in Arlington Tennessee.  For Haskin the decision to focus on serving the needs of the senior community is very personal.


“Two years ago I had to move my widowed mother from Oklahoma to Memphis,” said Haskin.  “Since then I had to move her in with me.  As my mom’s primary care giver I’m dealing with every aspect of her life issues and it has opened my eyes to the needs of our seniors when it comes to finding and being in a home that fits their needs.”


Haskin joins more than 16,000 real estate professionals in North America who have earned the SRES, having completed a comprehensive course in understanding the needs, considerations and goals of real estate buyers and sellers age 55 and older.


“As far as my mother is concerned, I’ve learned that fixed income and declining health pale in comparison to her feelings of isolation and loneliness,” said Haskin.  “The training I received has given me the direction as a real estate professional to help her expand her social network, something I’m still trying to accomplish.”


Since 2003 Haskin has been a licensed Affiliate Broker in Tennessee assisting buyers and sellers in and around Shelby, Fayette and Tipton counties.  He specializes in residential real estate sales with a focus on first time homebuyers, relocation and investment properties.  Haskin is an Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), member of the Memphis Area Association of Realtors (MAAR), Tennessee Association of Realtors (TAR) and National Association of Realtors (NAR).


“I count this time with my mom as a blessing and will cherish it for the rest of my life,” said Haskin.  “I would also like to thank my daughter Heather who helps me with my mom and our real estate business.”
