Changing the Way Houses are Sold in RVA
" After being totally frustrated with our previous agents, we decided to contract with April from Bobby and April company.
The previous agents had limited traffic though our fan house and very few folks at the open houses.
With their great marketing prowess and the excellent staging of the house, on the first open house run by April, we had over fifty people through the house with many clients lined up before the house was even opened. After that we had constant traffic through the house and an offer followed shortly, thereafter.
April knew the market, was responsive and was on top of all aspects of the process: from paint color recommendations thru the contract negotiations.
There is no doubt in my mind that Bobby and April are changing the way real estate is sold in RVA.
They have a solid following that waits in anticipation to see how they will modernize these beautiful old fan houses.
Trust me, don't waste your time with any other company or agent: choose Bobby and April." – AD
"I moved from out of the area into Richmond and I discovered April when I was looking at one of her listings. I bought a different house instead, but April made the whole process absolutely seamless.
She is part real estate expert, part therapist, part friend, part Rolodex. She hooked me up with a terrific painter and housecleaner who got in there before I moved in and she brought me the sweetest housewarming presents.
She is funny, smart, no-nonsense. I trust her completely with respect to the whole house purchasing process, and as a lawyer by training, I don't really trust anyone. She has my fullest recommendation."
"April, Bobby and Kendall truly provided a total concierge experience for us in the renovation and sale of our home in Richmond's Fan area.
Living over an hour away we did not have to lift a finger throughout the entire process. They fully renovated our 100 year old home, marketed, staged and sold it in the time frame they had promised us and we had two offers within the first 48 hours of listing!
We would highly recommend April and her team to anyone looking for a professional company who will go all out for their clients!"
RVA to DC Transition
"Shortly after relocating to RVA from DC we decided to buy our first home and make the move permanent. We met with April to discuss the process and before we knew it we were getting her daily emails of listing that met our “very specific specifications.”
April was great to work with, very hands on, and provided excellent feedback along the way. She was quick to point out new listings that might work, and we had to visit only two homes before making an offer.
April’s knowledge and resources saved us time and money. Our home-buying process was simple and easy with April, especially compared to other friends in the area who had to look for months with other realtors.
We’ve recommended her to all our friends looking to purchase in RVA and we’ll definitely work with her again."
" April, along with Bobby and Kendall, were great to work with. We initially contacted them to help us start looking for an old Fan home to "fix-up", but within a few months helped us find the home of our dreams that was already renovated and ready to move in to.
April's knowledge of the historic neighborhoods of Richmond is exceptional. She did a great job listening to what we wanted, but also pointed out things we might not have known about or anticipated.
We love our new old house and our neighborhood where we can walk to restaurants, museums, breweries, and parks!" – BM
Above and Beyond
“April and Kendal helped us relocate to Richmond and we could not be happier with all they have done for us.
They went above and beyond the call of duty to show us Richmond and the areas surrounding it. Their knowledge of the area led us to the perfect house for us.
They made the process fun and easy. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor in and around Richmond.” – SP
“From the start of our search until our closing several months ago, April worked hard to be sure that we were up-to-date with all the moving parts of the deal.
She handled the inspection while we were away for a family emergency, negotiated a great reduction to cover the repair expenses, handled the appraisal and showed up at closing with champagne.
Top level service the whole way - we highly recommend.” – SJ
Making It Easy
"Especially given that we were looking for homes on a more modest budget, we didn't know what to expect when we first started with Bobby+April.
But April provided help and guidance at every step for us as first-time home buyers.
As stressful as the process can be, having April on our side kept us at ease, whether it was the negotiation stage or helping check on the endless paperwork.
We can't imagine having gone through this process without Bobby+April!" – ML
Whatever It Takes, Whenever It’s Needed.
“I have been an avid follower of this brokerage’s work for quite a while when I decided to reach out to them on a whim to see where they would price my restored Fan home.
Their response peaked my interest tremendously. I ended up meeting with April in person and from then on had nothing but a great experience with her and her team.
She perfected the timing of my listing on the market - waiting a few weeks after the holidays to list it. In the interim she had a few contractors come by to install nice baseboards in our finished basement and it looked fantastic! It was also very reasonably priced and she handled all the details.
The open house saw over 100 visitors which was completely unexpected (by me!) We received a verbal offer at the open house and several others followed as well.
April explained the strengths and weaknesses of the offers and we selected one. All were WELL over listing price. April was great at keeping me abreast of the progress of the sale.
On closing day, I found the buyers weren’t going to close unless a large new piece of furniture (that I thought they wanted) was removed from the basement. With just hours to spare April had her team come to remove the furniture so the buyers would close on time.
April and her team are very professional, know the Fan real estate market very well, and go above and beyond for their clients! I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy in Richmond city!"
