Ben Durant, SRES®

I understand that buying or selling a home is a life-changing experience, especially for seniors. In the world of fast-paced technology and growing scams, I want to be your trusted resource in guiding you toward a stress-free transition to your next chapter.

I am a licensed Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) agent in Vermont and I specialize in helping seniors transition to their new home. Whether it’s downsizing, moving to a single-level living, transitioning to assisted living, or helping adult children clear out and sell their parents’ home, I will be your trusted resource.

This is a life calling for me. I didn’t choose this position, it found me. As a teen, I watched my own ancestral family homes decline in the final years of ownership by my grandparents; they never looked worse than on the day they sold. This heart-break was transformative. I was too young and not in a position to help my grandparents then, but I vow to help you now!

My mission and expertise

As a Senior Real Estate Specialist, I see housing in a different way: through seniors’ eyes. It’s not just about selling the house; it is a full service approach to taking care of all your needs.  

I love helping senior home buyers and sellers who are considering buying homes and real estate in Vermont. By adopting the needs-based perspective, I’m able to better help seniors and their adult children navigate the complex world of independent and assisted living in Vermont and beyond. 

My expertise and training are specialized to serve the senior market, and the ability help with transitions awake sense of pride that appeals to the boy scout in me. Transitions can be challenging but don’t have to be. Whether it’s downsizing or relocation to another state, I’m here to help you do it stress-free.

Many of our clients have been in their homes for over 30 years. Their home has been an investment so pricing it right and making sure they get top dollar is very important.
