What is the Master-ASA?
The Master-ASA is the PhD of real estate in Canada; it is the elite of Canadian REALTORS® who have chosen to specialize in helping Seniors and their families with late-in-life moves.
The Master-ASA is an off-shoot of the ASA Seniors Real Estate program, Canada’s largest real estate program, and the only Canadian program that trains REALTORS® in the differences in working with seniors. With some 2,300 graduates, the ASA has a significant presence in the professions that serve seniors, with graduates of the program including accountants, lawyers, financial planners, retirement residence managers, mortgage professionals, amongst others.
The Master-ASA designee is someone with extensive experience working with seniors and their families, through every stage of the moving decision process. To become a Master-ASA requires proof of this extensive experience, as well as completion of further educational programs, and a longer tenure in real estate. Master-ASA’s typically have very extensive networks with every field surrounding late-in-life moves. At the bottom of this page are short explanations by some of our Master-ASA’s of why they are so passionate about helping seniors and their families.

The Master-ASA designee’s mission is to facilitate late in life moves in such a way as to ensure that senior adult clients and their families have access to professionals with a full appreciation for the unique circumstances occurring in transactions involving older adults & the competency to ensure their successful completion.
In a nutshell, every day, we do the things you will likely only have to do once in a lifetime; for a Master-ASA, it is a familiar process. For you, it will likely be a confusing, stressful, intimidating process.
