Are you downsizing into a smaller home, condo or retirement home?

Chances are, you’ve accumulated a legacy of things that tell the story of your life journey. Parting with some of these things can be emotional and we understand. 

At Neatspaces, our long history assisting clients with their downsizing needs makes this transition as easy as possible. We have relationships with movers, cleaners, auction houses, consignment stores, and charitable depots.

Helping you reduce the overwhelm

Your transition or new home move can feel monumental, and for many people, the task list is all-consuming. Unfortunately, life won’t often slow down to accommodate how much you have to do. 

We help you reduce the overwhelm with concierge-level move management services, so you can stay focused on the things that matter. 

Your job is to continue living your life while we take care of the details. In fact, some of our clients hand over the keys as they leave their family home and return to their new home fully unpacked and set up.

Community connections

Neatspaces has established relationships with Toronto realtors, retirement homes, legal and accounting professionals to make the whole downsizing process seamless. We have worked with Amica Senior Lifestyles, Signature, Verve, Chartwell, VIVA, Seasons, Sunrise and other retirement and long-term care facilities.

Retirement lifestyle in Toronto

Toronto is a cosmopolitan, world-class city that boasts some of the most expensive and eclectic real estate markets in the country. 

Some established neighbourhoods in Toronto date to the early nineteenth century, including Rosedale, Forest Hill, North Toronto, Leaside, North York, and Moore Park. 

If you’re looking for a newly gentrified neighbourhood, Toronto has many up-and-coming areas like Leslieville, the Junction, Queen West, and Ossington, which provide plenty of options for mobile Torontonians and people relocating to the largest city in Canada.

Best of both worlds

While Toronto is a large cosmopolitan city, retirement living in a condominium or retirement home can provide a small community feel. 

Imagine living and socializing with vibrant outdoor, leisure, and cultural choices to keep you engaged and entertained. You can keep active in the city’s abundant green spaces, parks, shoreline, walking, and biking trails.

If you prefer cultural activities, visit Casa Loma, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), and the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) for world-class museum and art gallery experiences.  The city has a wide variety of theatre, opera and dance for the arts enthusiast.  

For ongoing learning, the University of Toronto (U of T), George Brown, and York University are a few of the institutions offering continuing education, seminars and other intellectual pursuits. 

You can stroll through the unique neighbourhoods of Yorkville, Little Italy, Cabbagetown, Chinatown and the Beach for a mix of shopping, culture and gastronomical delights.  Your retirement life will only be limited by the hours in a day.

At Neatspaces, we are here to help make your transition to Toronto as seamless and stress-free as possible, so you can move in and immediately begin enjoying all the city has to offer.
