Saskia Wijngaard

Years ago Saskia witnessed two wonderful ladies being taken advantage  of from a financial perspective. Appalled at the situation Saskia decided to take action and create a company called Everything 4 Seniors. Saskia’s goal was to find companies to network with that were truly senior-friendly.

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 80 year old lady named Jean.   Jean was too young in mind and spirit to be called a senior and  needed someone to work side-by-side with 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 cook and clean for her. In her mind, A reverse mortgage was out of the question. 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 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 launch it nationally and offer an alternative to more people. The synergy in their goals to help people created the opportunity to incorporate the company to bring Sell ‘N STAY Inc.’s concept to people across North America.
