Greenhouse was very responsive, and diligent in sourcing multiple candidates.

"Levante was looking to hire a VP level candidate. Although we had not used Greenhouse prior to this engagement, we had positive feedback from other sources about their performance. The experience turned out to be above and beyond our expectations. Greenhouse was very responsive, and diligent in sourcing multiple candidates. I highly recommend Greenhouse."

They have time and again proven their worth and expertise.

She helped me put my best foot forward.

"Sylvia contacted me as a recruiter. She was extremely knowledgeable about the industry, hiring company, and what they were looking for. She coached me through the entire interview process and completely changed the way I perceived career transition. Most simply put, she helped me put my best foot forward. Sylvia is professional, dedicated, and highly skilled in reading people. I highly recommend her!"

Candidate placed through Greenhouse


I really feel they negotiated on my behalf to get the best contract.

"When I started considering a change in my career - I was a bit nervous. Finding the right fit was so important to me at this stage in my life. I also wanted it to be completely confidential.

Working with Sylvia at Greenhouse Recruitment was a great experience. Not only was it enjoyable - I really feel they negotiated on my behalf to get the best contract. I'm 3 months into my new role and they're still checking in on me. I highly recommend Greenhouse."

Great team, with lots of expertise.

"Greenhouse Marketing is certainly a “Go To” group for Marketing & Sales needs in the senior living space. 

I have used the services at Greenhouse for a variety of needs in the past including; full community marketing & sales audit, mystery shops, advertising layouts and training.

Great team, with lots of expertise that can meet the needs of any client, and a true pleasure to work with."

Jackie Dusome

Greenhouse offers end-to-end support to senior living operators.

"Having known the leadership team of Greenhouse Marketing & Communication for over 20 years I can safely say they are the leading seniors housing marketing and communications groups in Canada.

The senior living sector by everyone’s account is a highly specialized industry to which only a very few groups can truly claim a specialty. Greenhouse is clearly one of the few full-service groups that can offer end-to-end support to senior living operators.

My experience with Greenhouse has always provided refreshingly intuitive ideas, clear project management skills and elite level professionalism. The size or scope of the project doesn’t drive their interest, their team passionately delivers each and every time. 

Over the last 20 years they have successfully delivered on projects from British Columbia to Ontario – location wasn’t a barrier. I would recommend them highly and continue to use their services without hesitation."

Without their expertise, we would not have been able to recover as quickly as we did.

"Shepherd Terrace had been enjoying a decade of high occupancy without much effort. We had a healthy waiting list and were consistently above 96% occupancy.
Over eighteen months, our occupancy started decreasing, and the waitlist disappeared. We decided to engage Greenhouse to assist us with performing a marketing audit.

The report highlighted issues and made several recommendations to improve our programs and services and prepare a marketing plan that we never needed before.
We made many changes as a result of the marketing audit, and within 12 months, we had gone from under 80% occupancy back to high 90’s.

Greenhouse provided us with a tailored approach that met our specific needs within the community we serve.

I would highly recommend Greenhouse since, without their expertise, we would not have been able to recover as quickly as we did."

The team is prompt to respond and deliver.

"When it comes to mystery shops, Greenhouse is always my first call! The team is great to work with… they are open to customization and welcome the notion of collaborating a plan of action. With that, the team is prompt to respond and deliver.

Mystery shops are a necessary auditing tool. Thank you, Greenhouse, for understanding our needs."

I’d trust Greenhouse for future recruitment.

"We have worked with Greenhouse at various properties, in multiple provinces, and they never disappoint.

Attentive, professional, and friendly service abounds. They use their industry knowledge to cater to your specific needs and situation, and they never miss the mark. We have likewise worked with Greenhouse on the recruitment front, and they have delivered us some incredible candidates. I would highly recommend all of Greenhouse’s services.

Senior' Housing Professional


Well known in the industry for having created the "retirement industry sales bible."

"I have had the pleasure of working for and with Greenhouse Marketing and many of their team members over the past 16+ years, while working in the senior housing retirement industry. The team at Greenhouse Marketing has a wealth of knowledge and expertise, and an outstanding reputation when it comes to offering a variety of industry services. They assist companies with creating market place assessments and successful marketing / advertising campaigns in order increase lead generation and boost sales for newly built, existing communities, and those that are in need of being totally re-branded.

Their team consists of media buyers and graphic designers, to full and part time sales teams, that can just walk into your community and / or pick up a phone remotely in order call potential clients and help boost sales. They offer human resource services that can help you build power house teams of truly dedicated people in every department, that are passionate about wanting to help seniors.

Greenhouse Marketing can also assess how effective your staff are when communicating with new potential customers through their mystery shop program, and offer staff training using a variety of innovative and successful sales / training techniques, in order to help increase ROI from leads converting to calls, to tours, to sales. Heather Green is well known in the industry for having created the "retirement industry sales bible." I have personally had the pleasure of being mystery shopped by this program and attending their training sessions over the years. I have even hired them to conduct in-person and online webinar sales training seminars for Comfort Life's clients. Many of our attendees are experienced industry sales/marketing people, however, they love to attend every time Greenhouse staff are involved, because there is always something new to learn from them."
