     Not a niche for me, but I have worked several transactions where the "children" in their 50's or 60's were selling the parents' house, and either downsizing Mom and/or Dad, or moving them to assisted living. 

     Lots of emotions involved.  Be sure a CPA and an attorney are involved.

If you're looking for a niche and if your kind/compassionate and trustworthy, it's a great one.  I've been writing blogs posts on some of these topics for 2 of my clients.  One is a home care provider and the other is an investor who buys houses for cash and then flips them.

I prefer working with people who I want to work with and who want to work with me in achieving their real estate goal(s).   

Knowledgeable or able to learn. 

Loyalty. 

Ability to perform. 

Responsiveness.    

It's what I demand of myself and what I expect in return.  

It's all about finding the right match.  In real estate.  And in life.

The best experience comes from doing. I have worked on many estates, friends and family and through doing those have gained a lot of knowledge. Network with attorneys and show them you are knowledgeable.That is where the business starts on an arms-length level.
