Maria I cannot say enough positive things about Maria Lourenco of Downsizing Diva. During the height of COVID my mother fell at her residence and had to moved to our home. It was an extremely stressful time for the family, but Maria and her crew made it the most stress free move. They interfaced with my Mother’s residence, were able to pack and move her in the most efficient manner. May I add that this was not an easy thing to accomplish, especially during COVID and dealing with the restrictions that were in place during the move. Maria has a wonderful caring way and and was so pleasant to deal with. During one of the most stressful times Maria was able to accomplish what was needed done. I would highly recommend Downsizing Diva - Maria Lourenco. Wonderful company and wonderful person.

Thank you Maria for all your help. Definitely a five star review.

Maria Downsizing Divas made our mom’s move from our family home of 46 years, as smooth a transition as possible. Maria and her incredible crew at Downsizing Divas took excellent care with our mom’s tentative heart and even better care of her treasured keepsakes. Maria walked her through the whole process, was patient and never made our mom feel rushed. Her crew of incredible packers, movers and unpackers were calm during what felt to us like total chaos. They made sure everything was set up in our mom’s condo - even made her bed for her - before they called the job ‘done’. Every step of the process ran smoothly and exactly as Maria predicted it would. The expertise this company offered made the world of difference to our family and we wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend them for anyone looking to support a senior through a move.

Cousin - Valerie

Maria recently made arrangements to hire the Downsizing Divas to organize and carry out the move of some items from my elderly cousin’s large house to a retirement home suite.
The three staff members that I met were very pleasant professionals who made this experience much less stressful. I was able to give them input on my cousin’s behalf about the items that I knew she cherished the most and would want to have with her in her new home. The Divas listened to me, asked good questions, made suggestions and then after taking careful measurements of her furniture pieces and the new room measurements created a plan for the new suite.
The result was a very welcoming suite for my cousin containing more memory items than I had anticipated yet leaving sufficient space for her to safely move about using her walker. The Divas co ordinated move details with the retirement home staff and booked the movers. Throughout this process they communicated frequently with me which made me feel part of the team. This move went very smoothly.

I highly recommend The Divas to any individuals and families who are considering downsizing from their current place of residence. You will not be disappointed.

Maria - Thank you again for all that you and your team did to assist with moving my mother and cleaning out her house. I can’t imagine how we would have gotten through it all without your assistance. If you ever need me to stand as a reference please don’t hesitate to ask.

Every time I meet one of my club members, we exclaim over the happy time we had listening to you , and how apt was so much of what you said. I know that I and some of the other ladies have thrown out some stuff already. And thinking it over, I realized how sensible and right was your philosophy. I have never enjoyed any of our speakers more. Thank you sincerely for making our Christmas meeting a special one.
