The CRTS Credential
CRTS® is more than education or training—it is the most recognized symbol of professionalism and standards in move management, senior relocation and senior transition services.
Certified Relocation and Transition Specialist (CRTS)® is the only Certification credential designed to test competency in the senior relocation industry. CRTS® is not a membership or course certificate. It is a professional designation which is awarded based on individual understanding of industry standards.
CRTS® graduates comprise the body of professionals known as the CRTS® Professional Registry. This group represents standards of excellence in senior relocation, home transition, downsizing and move management services. Certified individuals include Organizers, Movers, move managers, Home Stagers, Realtors, estate planners, home care providers, elder law attorneys, nurses, social workers, housing administrators and more.
All Certified Transition Specialists® are dedicated professionals who provide a spectrum of moving and age-in-place services for senior clients, their families and caregivers. While there is diversity in services, all CRTS® professionals:
- Provide a home assessment to determine client needs
- Establish transition plans or timetables
- Coordinate resources
- Perform or supervise planning, sorting, packing, moving, downsizing, organizing and resettlement services

Accredited Senior Agent
The Accredited Senior Agent™ (ASA) designation is a sign that your Realtor has the training, skills, and dedication that is required when working with mature and senior clients. The needs of this clientele are different from other types of real estate, whether relating to the need for information on available housing options or government loan and grant programs to help you to stay in your home.
An Accredited Senior Agent™ has training in Canadian tax laws, estates and estate planning, Wills, trusts, capital gains, and options on ways to release the equity in your home for future living expenses. Along with this training, one of the valuable assets an ASA brings to you is a Network of Exceptional Specialists – professionals who specialize in all the afore-mentioned matters, so you can get the help you need.
An Accredited Senior Agent™ knows local retirement living options, so you can rest assured that you’ll find out about all your options. If your family members are involved in your move, an Accredited Senior Agent™ can take a lot of the burden off their shoulders. For you, and them, you’re in unfamiliar territory, and it’s stressful plus very time consuming to figure out everything you need to know and do. With an ASA on your side, you can relax; it’s what they’re trained to do and it’s what they love to do.
Perhaps the best thing about hiring an Accredited Senior Agent™ is their one overriding goal the whole time you are together – helping you make the right choice for you.
