I would give April my highest recommendation to anyone, based on my experience purchasing a home with her. I was a first-time home buyer, entering an extremely competitive market with a limited budget, in a time with very limited inventory and sales volumes. She cared about what I wanted and was focused on finding a home that met my needs, rather than settling to make a sale. No matter how many times or how badly I got outbid on my offers, through her persistence she ultimately got me into a home that I truly feel is the best one for me, and was as friendly, professional, and a pleasure to work with as I could have asked for at all times throughout the process.

I had a wonderful experience with April as my realtor 😊.

April was on top of my needs as a buyer and helped me find homes that were within my budget and helped set appointments to see the homes. April was very responsive and firmly loyal to me as her client when it came to negotiating.

I found April to be trustworthy, helpful, and fun to work with, and very knowledgeable with great connections. If you are looking for a realtor to represent your needs and help you purchase your home, then April is your girl.

Best,

One word for April - Awesome! We bought a house in Willow Glen and April played a pivotal role in making sure everything goes smoothly. What we appreciated the most about April is her ability to work swiftly. She was accessible, super responsive and always ready to go that extra mile to make sure that you have everything you need to make a sound decision. For most people buying a house is the biggest investment of life which in this market can involve making fast decisions based on the limited information you have on hand. That's where you need someone like April who is experienced, knowledgeable about the real estate market and provides perspective along the way. Thanks April! It was great working with you.

April is with you every step of the way. She is easy to reach and fast with her response. She will steer you away from homes that will not sell and is always available when you need her. I would highly recommend April for any real estate transaction, whether it is buying or selling. Thank you April for your great effort.

INSTANT EQUITY

Every buyer loves instant equity. We negotiated a sale price less than the list price and higher than appraised value. How can we help you?

April did a tremendous job in helping me sell my San Jose home in Cambrian. April managed the process and guided me through every aspect of the sale. It all started with the market analysis and determining what improvements to make and which to leave to maximize my return. This was crucial as I would have over improved the property in preparation for the sale. As a busy executive I am constantly on travel. April managed the pre sale work and got the property to market ON TIME! Though a skilled negotiator myself, I found her objectivity versus my emotional attachment to the property invaluable during the negotiations. April secured not only an excellent price but maybe more importantly a great contract. The home sold quickly at well above asking and everything was incredibly effortless for me. Having done over 9 Real Estate transactions in my life, I can say this one was by far the best managed, least stressful and most successful. I would certainly recommend April to anyone seeking to Buy or Sell a home.

Meeting April was a prime example of right place at the right time. We met, April at an open house and immediately felt she understood my fiance and I. I can speak from experience, you will meet all kinds of characters in this business - "Sold homes since 1985", "Proven negotiating tactics" and my personal favorite. "That's impossible". April, did the small things that mean so much more.

1. She took 30 minutes to get to know us.
2. Gave us some tips as first time home buyers.
3. Gave us her card in case we have follow up questions, with ZERO commitment from us.
4. Oh, and left her catchy slogans at home.

She helped us find THE home within 2 weeks of meeting her. She was caring, nurturing, available and honest. From proposal to close, she made sure that she was personally involved in everything without ever making us feel overwhelmed or pressured. To add the cherry on top, despite any challenges or potential roadblocks, she was there to tackle them ahead of time or be there with us every step of the way. I cannot express enough what a positive experience this has been for us. I am incredibly thankful for April's knowledge, guidance and being at the open house.

My first-time home buying experience with April was fantastic! She was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and responsive every step of the way. My fiancé and I had absolutely no idea where to start when going into the process, but she made sure to walk us through everything to ensure that we were informed buyers. The process can be quite daunting, so it was wonderful to work with someone we knew we could trust and depend on in not only finding a home that we love, but for a price that we were comfortable with as well. I really appreciate how quick she was to respond to any/all questions we had, even if it was late at night or first thing in the morning. She truly is dedicated to her clients and a great person to work with.

We will definitely be contacting her in the future for any home buying/selling needs. I highly recommend working with her. You will not regret it!

Her vast and extensive knowledge/connections gives you confidence is any informed decisions you make with her. It was Pleasure working with such a service-oriented realtor and would highly recommend her to all potential buyers and sellers.

April did an amazing job guiding me through my first home purchase in the San Jose area. As a young, working professional without any family in the area, I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into. April did a wonderful job of helping to determine what my needs were, and getting me into my first home. She helped me get in touch with a loan officer, and throughout the whole process, would explain every step in excruciating detail. She was willing to show me places at what seemed any hour of the day, whether it was a workday or a weekend. Most importantly, I have zero patience for unresponsive service providers. April was constantly in contact with me, whether through e-mail, texts, or phone calls, and never made me feel like I was alone in the buying process. It was a long, grueling process, but her positive, encouraging attitude really helped keep me determined and motivated to find a place. Ultimately, April helped me find a home in the exact area I was looking for. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy a home in this area, whether it is their first home purchase or not. She is a true joy to work with, and anybody fortunate to have the opportunity to work with her would echo these same exact words. Thank you again for everything, April!!

I have bought and sold numerous properties over my life. April is simply the best Real Estate Professional I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was so attentive and delivered many value-added items like figuring out bike paths and commute routes and neighborhood business establishments. Just as wonderful experience with a true professional!

April Tavares is the best! As a new widow, my five bedroom house was too big for me. She helped me get it ready to sell, represented me at the open house, and handled all the necessary paperwork on the sale and closing. Her attention to detail was excellent. I would use her again in a heartbeat.

We had worked with April in 2009 when we bought our first home in San Jose, and when it was time to move, there was no doubt in our mind that we would go back to her. This time, she helped us sell our existing home in San Jose, as well as purchase one in Cupertino in October, 2015. Throughout the whole process of selling one home and simultaneously placing offers on another, she was there with us the whole way, even working late at night while we were dealing with offers on our property.
April gave us valuable advice on presenting and marketing our home, and we loved the photography and flyers she had put together during the process. She used Docusign throughout the process, something that was invaluable given our often conflicting schedules. Holding our home open and conducting private showings was handled very well by her too.

We searched for our new home in various areas before narrowing down on a few, and she was incredibly helpful and patient during the entire process while we made up our minds about what we wanted. She accompanied us to every open house as well, and we appreciated the advice she gave us about each property.
When we were ready to make offers, her knowledge of the offer and acceptance process was something we relied on, and I cannot emphasize enough how much this made life easier for us!
When we had our offer accepted, she was always there whenever we had questions about the mortgage conditions and process as well. She is easily accessible by phone/text/email, and we appreciate this about her.
While many agents might consider their job done after closing day, April is still in constant touch as we go through the renovation process before moving into the new home. Her knowledge about homes and construction is something we've come to rely on now!
If you are looking for an agent who is knowledgeable about the South Bay area and the entire offer and mortgage process, as well as one who goes above and beyond what is expected of a realtor, look no further.
We have no qualms about recommending her to family and friends, and will go back to her whenever the time comes to move again!

I wanted a home in a specific area and April was able to find it ! Since the first day until the last one she was there. Very, very helpful for me because I've just arrived a few months ago from France, and for sure wasn't easy to understand all the there was to know (credit score, mortgage, escrow....). April has been there all the time and at any time (very late some time!!). Even right now because I still need her help to have recommendations for some little things to be fixed up.
Thanks again

Recently relocated to America, it was not easy to understand how the house sales market works. We tried many Realtors,but none of them provided us the same level of support. April had been a great coach for us. She helped us to make the right decision. She guided us through the process. Always available in short notice too. It was very comfortable for us. She made this experience very smooth and enjoyable. April took care of all details. It was really a pleasure to work with April. We finally found the place we were looking for. Not to forget the after sales support we received from April. She has a large network of sub-contractors that we chose from to remodel our place.

For your next purchase I would recommend to be in touch with April.

I have known April Tavares for about 4 years now and she is a fantastic realtor! I love her style; she is very consultative, responsive, and knowledgeable. April really knows the market, especially in Saratoga, Los Gatos, West San Jose, and Cambrian areas and is able to negotiate the best offer for her buyers.

Even though I have known April for many years now, what prompted me to write this review was because of a recent transaction she did to help her buyers get into a contract that came out to be less than the appraised value so her buyers got a great deal!

She takes really great care of her clients throughout the whole process.
I highly recommend working with April for your real estate needs!

We had been looking to buy a house for a long time and had failed on many previous offers. We changed realtors to April and things changed. April very quickly understood what type of home we were looking for, sifted through the homes and came up with good homes we viewed.
In the end, she made it happen on a home we put an offer in and got the deal done. We now are in our home and very happy. Thank you April.

April is an amazing realtor who made the first time buying a home as easy as you can get. My husband and I looked at several properties and put in several offers and April was always there working efficiently, and helping us through every step. We had a unique complication in that my mother is in London but needed to be part of the signing process. April uses Docusign which made this process incredibly easy! Without April, we would never have been able to get through this obstacle and purchase our dream condo. April is incredibly hardworking (I can remember her writing up offers at 10 o'clock at night), sincere and helpful.

I have continued to recommend April to any friend that has wanted to look for properties in San Jose. If you need a a realtor, call April!

April is an amazing Realtor. She worked with my wife and I to find the perfect place. We must have looked at 10-15 properties and put in around 7 offers. She is efficient, focused, and extremely intelligent.

If you are looking to purchase a property in the south bay call April Tavares.

I hired April in finding my home in San Jose. She was extremely helpful in doing digging that I didn't have time for. And when we finally found a home to bid on, she was a very good representative for me in getting the best bid and terms possible. She also hand held the paperwork process for closing escrow and drove it all to the completion. Without her help I don't know if I would have been able to close in time! FYI for geeks.. she also is very responsive on email, and uses very good website software for helping buyers.
