Lisa, thank you so much for the amazing services that you and your team provided! My daughter gave me your service as a gift, and it was an invaluable gift. I would not have been able to leave my large home on 4 acres where I have lived for 20 years and move to a small townhome in an adult resort community had your amazing team not worked with me and held my hand every step of the way. The physical labour alone of sorting and packing would have been too much for me, but as well, you took all the stress out of arranging the move, dealing with donations and disposal of other items, cleaning my old home at the end for the new owners, and just sorting out all the logistics of moving. You also arranged for a handy man to come to my new home to hang the TV, and all the art and the mirrors etc., so that it looked like a home, not a just a house, within a very short time! Every person on your team was so nice and so kind and so helpful, and I am immensely grateful for your great service. Thank you.
What a job they did! Our Realtor suggested we have a free-in-home consultation with Brenda – owner of Downsizing Diva Etobicoke. After securing two referrals Brenda and her team got started. We were very happy with their full service approach and what a job they did! Not only did they help us downsize and de-clutter but also arranged for the necessary home repairs and prepared our home for the stager. Then looked after all the packing, move day and unpacking. Everything went so smoothly. In doing the job it was like dealing with people you knew as close friends. We could not ask for a better experience. We do not hesitate in recommending them. Believe us you are in for a warm and effective downsize and move.
We could not have accomplished our move without you and your “crew” of capable people and contacts. Sincere Christmas greetings to our Diva “par excellence”!
We continue to sing your praises when asked about our move! You orchestrated what could have been a very difficult experience into a smooth transition to our new home, thank you again. Have a happy and Merry Christmas. We'll keep in touch.
Our congratulations on being named the Entrepreneur of the Year by the Caledon Chamber of Commerce. Well done! Charles Bristoll's remarks do you justice. We agree
wholeheartedly.The thought of moving from our home of 47 years to a much smaller condo could have been over whelming! A friend put us in contact with Brenda and so the way was paved for a super efficient move with a minimum of stress for us. Brenda and her team orchestrated our downsizing with good humour, understanding and contacts, which helped us to decide what to keep and what to let go. Packing, moving, unpacking, no breakage and no scrapes or dents! We made the choices and Brenda and her Divas did the work! Our home was left spotless for the new owners and this pleased us greatly. All in all, a very good experience.
Tired? Yes, but happy! Thank you Brenda.
I never thought I could move from my home of 42 years. But when I received the help and guidance from Downsizing Diva Caledon-Dufferin it became possible… I was lonely and not eating proper meals. Once I knew all the details of moving could be taken care of……I jumped at the thought of being around others and enjoying well- prepared meals. I love my new home! Client
I retained Brenda’s services for two different clients and could not be more pleased with the results. Not only did Brenda do a fabulous job working with me, she respected the needs and wishes of my clients while working tirelessly to transform their home , which resulted in full- price sales in under 48 hours. Brenda made my job easier and she also helped my clients get everything they wanted financially from the sale of their homes. It is great to know I have someone like Brenda to rely on and I will definitely be asking for her help again soon!
I feel this entrepreneur of the year award is very deserving to Downsizing Diva Caledon-Dufferin. They are a very valuable part of my business since Brenda and her team offer my clients a full service program and excellent personalized service to help them prepare their home for the market. Congratulations Brenda!
I just wanted to thank you so much for an amazing job! It really shows you love your work and care and help the people to downsize. I know my brother is very happy with everything you did for him I will recommend you to anyone that needs your services.
Thanks again so much!
We wanted you to know what a tremendous job Carolyn and Kathy did in clearing out my sister’s apartment. They worked well as a team and did everything possible to clear out the apartment in an orderly fashion. We were very pleased with the results and we wanted to tell you what a great job they did and how pleasant and friendly they were to us.
I was delighted to hear Downsizing Diva Caledon-Dufferin was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year for 2016. Brenda and her colleagues are simply amazing! They were incredibly attentive, respectful and everything was done so beautifully-including unpacking and organizing my mom in her new place. Enjoy this award for the coming year!
It’s The Right Move-Owner
It has been a pleasure working with Brenda’s company providing her clients with all their moving requirements. This award definitely has been earned and the attention to details shows on every move we have done for the Caledon Divas! Congratulations Brenda!
Just a quick not to say that you should rename your company Downsizing ANGELS! Lily and Michael were exceptional in their competence, efficiency and above all Kindness. Many thanks for making my mother's move so painless!
We could not have done this without you and your wonderful staff! On behalf of me and Barb and Trish a huge thank you for all of your support and hard work and compassion in helping us with Jessie's move.
I wanted to express how pleased we were with the whole process of moving my parents. Lilly and Karen were wonderful – efficient, kind, very easy going, happy, accommodating, a real pleasure. Roy and his helper were great too – quiet, easy going as well, and cheerful. They are all great assets.
You have a great crew for dealing with what for us was a very difficult time, and you seem to run things so well. They seem happy in their cozy little set-up! Gives us great relief.
A thrilled client’s daughter
Brenda and her colleagues at Downsizing Diva are simply amazing! My mom was moving from the home she lived in for more than 50 years. They thought of everything – no detail was too small. They were incredibly attentive, respectful and everything was done so beautifully – including unpacking and organizing my mom in her new place. Brenda is very knowledgeable about additional resources – all those whom she involves such as movers are also superb! It was the best experience possible for my mom and for all of us!

I always feel good recommending this team to my clients. Downsizing Diva Etobicoke has helped several of my clients downsizing and assist them with every aspect of their move. I know my clients will be very well taken care of with any part of their move. The children of my elderly clients are always very pleased with the service Brenda offers since they often live a distance away. Brenda is passionate about reducing the stress for everyone during this process. Brenda and her team show compassion and sensitivity to all involved allowing me to do the best job possible for my clients.

Client / Daughter
The job was done efficiently and thoroughly. My Mother and I engaged the services of Downsizing Diva Etobicoke for my mother's move from her home into a retirement residence. The job was done efficiently and thoroughly. We could not have been more pleased with their professionalism, care, high level of customer service and compassion, given that mother was leaving her home of 59 years. We highly recommend their services.
They treat your parents like they were their own parents. We would like to thank Downsizing Diva Etobicoke for the services they provided to our family. Brenda and Joanne were involved in many steps of moving my parents from a large 3-bedroom condominium to a much smaller space at a retirement residence. They assisted with packing and unpacking. They booked movers, co-ordinated booking elevators with property manager at their condominium and the new retirement residence for move out and move in. They provided a contact for items to go to auction, they arranged for papers to be shredded, they looked after clear out of condo including old paints and had the condominium cleaned after everything was out. Brenda and Joanne were so organized and made the over whelming task appear seamless. They treat your parents like they were their own parents and have even been by to visit them at their new residence. "Thank you both for being professional, caring and compassionate. It was a pleasure to work with you."
I had my house up for sale and needed to de-clutter 32 years worth of furniture, antiques and collectibles that I couldn't take with me. Brenda and her team helped me pack up and move out everything. I didn't need leaving my house looking like a model home. They even had my kitchen, dining room, front entrance and the front door painted. These lovely ladies worked hard and did all this in two days. I couldn't have done this without Brenda and her team. Thank you so much!
