"My husband and I spent two days with Cathy while she packed up my friend's belongings and managed her move to an Amica retirement home. This was a very stressful move for my friend and Cathy had a way about her that helped my friend relax and trust her. Cathy made sure all the details were tended to. We thought she did a great job in managing the move and helping our friend settle in and I have no hesitation in recommending her."
- Heather, a client’s friend

- Linda, a niece
"My moving company has moved many seniors into a variety of seniors complexes in the Victoria area. One of the smoothest moves involved Cathy of Dream Downsizing. That move was memorable for its orderliness and low stress level. I would recommend the “Dream Team” to help make a parent or loved ones move as easy as possible."
- A Victoria Mover
... Our client was very pleased with the terrific job you did in preparing the home for sale. Personal items were packed up so that the home could be staged appropriately for sale. A thorough cleaning and detailing was provided as well. We were very impressed when we saw the final result as we know what the house looked like before!”
- A Peninsula Real Estate Team
"Moving/downsizing is an overwhelming experience. With the expert help from and this talented team, the move was seamless. I left, pushing my aunt in her wheelchair out of her old apartment, and returned to the new apartment 6 hours later to see the furniture arranged, the bed made, the paintings hung and the cat laying on my aunt's bed. Everything done. What happens to all the things no longer needed or wanted? No problem, they took care of everything. including disposing of old worn out furniture and rugs, storing items we still don't know what to do with, donating gently used items to charity and arranging for the transfer of a dining room suite to Vancouver. The compassion and understanding that this team showed my aunt was very much appreciated by her and she has expressed that with gratitude. I would, without hesitation, recommend Dream Downsizing to anyone needing help with moving."
- A niece (Retired nursing manager)
"I separated out things the family was taking and Dream Downsizing took it from there. Cathy and her crew took care of all the other items in the house. At my request and with her help in choosing charities, a lot of clothing, housewares etc., were sent to places where people in need would get them. If they came across anything that wasn't marked or any situation arose that they were not sure of how to proceed, I was contacted right away and nothing was done until they heard from me. Within one week all the items to be donated had been removed and taken to the proper charities, the house had been deep cleaned, repairs done, and staged for the realtor. I would have no hesitation in recommending this team to anyone. They conducted their business in a very professional, compassionate and conscientious manner with no surprises."
