Million Dollar M akeover s ow ner Sasha de
Bretton made the cut in this year’s 40 Under
40, which re cog nise s out standing young
businesspeople. It’s one of just several awards
carried off since she set up the company in 2009.
The self-confe ssed se rial ren ovator s tar ted
young then bought and renovated properties for
17 years before turning her hobby into a business
that does lightning -fast m akeover s aimed at
inc reasing a hom e’s value .
Sasha says her company can complete an
ave rage r enovation w ithin 14 days, a lot fast er
than the average DIY job, which can take months
or even years, wasting money along the way.
Her company’s approach can save clients
thousands of dollars, sometimes hundreds of
thousands, she adds. The guiding principle
re volves arou nd an infle xible plan of attack
drawn up by the all-female staff.
“ There is nothing more dangerous than a
woman with a plan,” Sasha says with a laugh.
“We run a tight ship, where everyone knows
their job and how to do it within the timeframe.”
They have a terrific relationship with their
tradespeople, she adds.
The results can be spectacular, aesthetically
and financially. A re ce nt r enovation inc rease d
a three-storey home’s value by $1 million, she
says. An average one can net owners a $250,000
profit. She may be a qualified builder, but Sasha
and her team are also known for their interior
design expertise, creating that unmistakable
‘wow’ factor. “ We save you time, stress, mess,
headaches... and divorce,” Sasha says.
