Years ago Saskia witnessed two wonderful ladies being were being taken advantage from a financial perspective .   Appalled at the situation Saskia decided to take action.  The company, Everything 4 Seniors, was established. Saskia’s goal was to find companies to network with that were truly  senior-friendly. The ultimate motivation was to help seniors.

When deciding to return to real estate  Saskia brought her passion of working with Seniors with her.  One of Saskia’s first referrals was a delightful older lady, named Jean, a wonderful lady in her 80’s.  Jean is too young in mind and spirit to be called a senior.  Jean needed someone to work side-by-side her to determine a solution that would fit her lifestyle. We looked at a retirement community, however, she felt she was still too young to have someone cooking and cleaning for her in a retirement community.   A reverse mortgage was out of the question, in her mind.   Saskia  created Sell ‘n STAY™ to address Jean’s desire to stay in her home while accessing 100% of her equity.  Saskia was mindful of the simple formula  K. I. S. S. ( keep it simple stupid) when designing the program. The premise was to be fair to all parties concerned.  She wanted to make the process  was secure, less stressful and protected the privacy of her clients.

The goal was to grow the company so Saskia entered into a strategic relationship with Theresa Baird, Broker to bring this program to more people. They discovered that they had similar viewpoints when it helping people and federally  incorporated August 1, 2016 in orer to bring the program to all Canadians.
