"April is a wonderful person and a great realtor. We are so thankful for her time, wisdom and effort in finding a great house for us. Looking forward to working with her in the future when we purchase a home. "

  -Eva Saltonstall, Client

"We are so grateful for all that our long-time friend and real estate agent, April Brandes, did for us in our search for beach front homes. She exhausted every avenue, even contacting out of the area agents, and was relentless in her pursuit of property for us. Plus, we were working with very tight time constraints as we had to re-invest because of a 1031 exchange, and she was extremely cognizant of that fact. We highly recommend April Brandes to find just the right home for you!"

  -Melanie and David Nankivell, Client

"April is superb in every respect! She pays careful attention to every detail, is always on top of everything, and is very easy to get a hold of any time of day or night. She's easy to talk with and has an approachable and pleasant disposition. Her group is a one-stop-shopping operation which included access to escrow services and lender options that provided good mortgage rates (very convenient). She goes out of her way to make sure you are happy with every detail. Pick her! You won't regret it. "

  -. Carey and Arturo Zamora, Client
