Sasha deBretton bought her first house at 21 years old, which she renovated and sold to make a profit. She continued to buy, subdivide and renovate for 17 years before turning her hobby into a multi million-dollar business. She left her full time job in 2009 to focus on the business, hiring a PA and administration staff, and made her previous annual salary in the first month. Million Dollar Makeovers and Fast Renovations provided a complete cosmetic renovation service for homes in a two to four week period, a unique turn around time that Ms deBretton uses to market her business. She provided a full design, project management and furnishing service. Million Dollar Makeovers and associated business World of Renovation collapsed in 2018 after hitting a cash flow crisis.
