Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
"Susan was an excellent resource for my wife and I as first time home buyers. Being native to Madison, we had an idea of what we were looking for, and Susan was able to provide us with a great amount of knowledge about both the homes and neighborhoods in which we were looking as well as setting up meetings and at open houses to help us refine our search. Through the entire process we were able to find a home that is a perfect fit! Working with a compressed timeframe Susan was able to act swiftly, answered questions timely when they arose, and made sure Molly and I were comfortable during the process. Susan has a great feel for the market in Madison and surrounding areas and we were very satisfied with our experience working with Susan and the Alvarado Group."

"April was great to work with. The whole group is very knowledgeable and ethical. When our realtor April had to go out of town for a couple days, she was still reachable and other realtors were available to assist us. She worked hard to help us find exactly what we were looking for. She also made sure we understood every step of the way."
"When we started looking for a house in Madison, we met with a few different realtors, and Julie immediately stood out. She took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for in a new home. She was always responsive, on top of everything and went the extra mile to make sure that we were satisfied. Her knowledge of the Madison market is remarkable. I highly recommend Julie to anyone looking to buy or sell in Madison, and I would work with her again without hesitation."
"Brett was a great realtor. He helped us find the perfect house to buy for our first home. It was exactly what we were looking for. He was very helpful with any questions we had and available at times that worked for us."
"Excellent realtor! Knowledgeable, energetic, personable. She accommodated OUR schedule when showing us homes. She found us the perfect home in the perfect location. Julie was our advocate. Will highly recommend her to our friends and will surely use her again."

"We were on a very tight timeline when we began working with April. She was always prompt answering our questions and getting us out to see newly listed properties as soon as possible. She also set us up with a great mortgage broker. She walked us through three different offers before we found our house, and each time made it as easy as possible. We our newly settled into our home and couldn't be happier with our purchase!"

"The Alvarado Group has helped us through three real estate transactions. We have felt supported and well informed through each process. Most recently we worked with Emma- she is awesome! Professional, easy going and honestly, a confident and eager negotiator. In selling our home she got us an offer over list price in less than 48 hours! Then she helped us find a new home in our ideal school district, met all our needs and under our budget. We would highly recommend Emma and really any agent they have. Shout out to Kate Weis too (she helped us buy our first house and is fantastic as well)!"

"We feel so fortunate to have found Susan as our real estate broker. We wanted to purchase a home in Madison from out-of-state, and Susan proved to be the most knowledgeable, professional, accommodating, and personable broker we could have wished for. Purchasing from out-of-state meant that Susan needed to have a clear understanding of what we were looking for in terms of style, location, and price. We were not very familiar with Madison’s neighborhoods and were thankful for her experience with and knowledge of the area. We were looking for an older house with character and found just that. The only thing that needed to be done was a kitchen remodel, and that in our mind was a plus. The remodel offered an opportunity to put our stamp on the house. She set us up with a kitchen designer and various contractors all of whom were exceptional. Susan also found us a lender who was great to work with. The whole purchasing process went smoothly and quickly. Susan is an excellent communicator, getting to the point quickly, and returning emails and phone calls promptly. This was so important in our long-distance communications. Susan is a problem solver. Our transaction was typical: issues arose suddenly that could have derailed the transaction. Susan shepherded the purchase through all obstacles with skill and patience. We feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Susan and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Madison area."

"Prior to meeting Julie my husband and I had considered not using a real estate agent as we had been looking at houses and watching the market for months before being ready to buy. With so much information available online we thought we were pretty knowledgeable and might be able to negotiate a better price without having to pay agent's fees. It was pure luck that I happened to have a conversation with Julie which later led to an agreement and quickly became the best thing we could have done. Julie is assertive without being over the top pushy, this made us trust her right away. I cannot stress enough how helpful it was to feel prepared for this process because we had someone experienced by our side, ready with documents and information so that we could make smart, informed decisions. I would recommend her in an instant to anyone in need of a real estate agent."

"April graciously and willingly went with the flow in our somewhat unconventional home buying and selling process. More importantly, she helped us stay on track so we could get both deals done under very tight time constraints. Home buying and selling is not a fun process but working with April helps you forget that fact!"
