Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
"From our very first meeting with Kate we knew immediately that we had found the right person to work with. She made the seemingly impossible task of simultaneously buying and selling our home extremely easy. Her communication throughout every step of the process was amazing. Even with a few unexpected bumps along the way, Kate kept us calm and focused. She was an excellent negotiator and surpassed all of our expectations in putting together great deals on both our sale and purchase. She also made great recommendations; from lenders to contractors that was incredibly helpful. Thank you, thank you, thank you Kate and the rest of the staff at Alvarado for all of your hard work. We look forward to many happy years in our family’s new home!"

"As a first time home buyer I had many questions and moderate anxiety in regards to finding a Madison home in the current market. Susan's knowledge and experience allowed her to answer all of my questions clearly, and quieted my anxieties. I was deeply impressed with her responsiveness, professionalism and sincere desire to help me find a great home. She is a top-quality realtor with a genuine commitment to her clients. Thank you Susan, I love my home!"
"It was such a stress-free time of working with Kate as the realtor representing and advising me in both buying a condo and selling a house.
Kate knows real estate, but she complements her professionalism with caring and sensitivity. As case in point: after seeing the condo which I bought, and wanting to made an offer on it, we moved quickly to do so. Kate, however, kept checking in with me asking, “Is this going too fast for you?” I assured her it wasn’t; but I was so impressed that she had the sensitivity in the midst of capably handling the business part of what needed to be done, to ask how I was doing personally with the decisions being made.
Kate is a hard worker. Even though I knew I wasn’t her only client, when she was with me, I felt that she was fully engaged in what we were about. If I contacted her, I knew I would hear back from her as soon as she was able to respond without compromising her attention with other clients. I felt comfortable and confident contacting her about any questions I might have, but there were few since she is very thorough in explaining things as well as advising how she thinks best to proceed and why.
I have no reservation about totally recommending Kate as a capable and caring real estate person. She also has a sense of humor and a ready laugh to appropriately sprinkle in with the serious matter of buying or selling a home.
How great to have a truly professional real estate person, who also authentically relates and connects with you as a person. That describes my totally positive experience of working with Kate."
"I thoroughly enjoyed working with April! She showed patience as I worked on downsizing after living in my home for more than 40 years, and had tactful and helpful suggestions on how to prepare my home for sale. Her knowledge and familiarity with the neighborhood was key in marketing the value of my location, as well as the desirable features of my older home. Everything went smoothly and I had multiple offers and it sold in a week!
I'd highly recommend April! She is friendly, professional, responsive, and a pleasure to work with."
"Julie helped our family buy our first home. It was a great experience and we got the house we wanted (which is not easy in this market). Julie took the time to show us many listings, listened to what we liked and didn't like about each, and really helped us decide what was most important in our search. She found us the perfect house, helped us write a competitive offer, and guided us through the closing process. She even had great recommendations for contractors after we closed. We have nothing but good things to say about Julie and would recommend her without hesitation."

"Everyone needs an agent like Susan on your side. Susan was professional, responsive, but mostly, she was clearly our advocate and represented our best interests. Susan represented us through some difficult negotiations and lender issues. This was our first home buying experience, and we could not have done it without Susan. Stop looking for other agents - Susan is the one!!"
- Ben & Betsy
"I actually found Julie on Zillow. I contacted her asking about a listed property and to also feel her out as possible buyer's agent for my fiancée and I. Her response from the beginning was prompt, informative, concise and cordial. This style of communication was consistent throughout the whole process and all the way to the day of closing. We quickly decided to go with her to advise us and we are very satisfied that we did. Julie quickly demonstrates that she has is driven by the genuine joy that comes from helping people find what they desire in a home."
"This was our first home buying experience, and Julie let us know what to expect throughout the searching and closing processes and was always quick to answer our questions. With how quickly houses are selling in the current market, Julie's always-positive personality provided a much needed calming influence. When we came across the right house for us, Julie helped us to do everything we could to put forward a competitive offer. Her list of recommended vendors (inspectors, contractors, etc.) have been incredibly helpful both during and after closing!"

"We worked with Susan when we purchased our condo. She was so easy to work with that we worked with her to sell our condo. She was responsive, helpful and we believe we got a fair price for our condo. We definitely recommend Susan as an agent."
