We Understand Seniors
At Bostok Hathaway, we are proud to be Accredited Senior Agents (ASA). We have recognized that specially-trained REALTORS® can play an essential role in assisting seniors and their families understand the options afforded to them as they transition into a situation more befitting their unique needs.
Our training and experience have given us invaluable insight and the tools necessary in assisting senior citizens and their families throughout the process. When it comes to selling or downsizing, there is much more than simply selling, buying, and moving. It’s not easy, and our specialized training eliminates any serious mistakes you may risk making. We remove confusion, solve complexities, and approach our work with kindness and patience.
Begin By Consulting An ASA…
As Boomers and Seniors ourselves, we understand people 50 and older, and our training puts us in a unique position. Our ASA designation is held by approximately 1% of all REALTORS® across Canada. Here is what we do to help:
An ASA will help remove all the stress and rush associated with some of life’s biggest decisions. We help seniors and their families navigate through age-induced crises, in a wide variety of situations to solve complex problems before they ever reveal themselves.
We are trained in understanding the unique needs of our elderly clients, working with their families (and inter-generational relationships), while adjusting our pace to match theirs and providing wisdom along the way.
Our role in your decision-making process is to act as consultants, and not salespeople, and to help you achieve the best result for you – not for us. We solve delicate issues and work through complexities as your ally, advisor, and friend.
We maintain relationships with professionals who benefit our senior clients. This includes quality suppliers such as movers, transition and elder care specialists, financial advisors, legal professionals, accountants, certified appraisers, and more.
They took the time to get to know our specific needs as we searched for the perfect condo for our situation. We never felt rushed or pressured.

Who We’ve Helped
Norman and Anita were fantastic to work with. They took the time to get to know our specific needs as we searched for the perfect condo for our situation. We never felt rushed or pressured.
They really had our back when it came to representing our financial interests, and their attention to details that demonstrated that commitment was very comforting in an environment of often pressured and emotional transactions.
We will definitely call on them again.
