Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
As a first time home buyer, I am beyond grateful to have worked with Emma and the Alvarado Group. I found the home buying process to be equally intimate and intimidating, yet Emma effortlessly eased all my nerves with her professional demeanor, personable energy, and honest feedback. I immediately felt comfortable trusting Emma to guide me in finding a home that met my needs while managing my expectations. She was exceptionally poised with candor, prompt with correspondence, and punctual to our showings and meetings. I was relieved to have such a dependable Realtor in Emma, however, even more thankful to have gained an authentic friend.
"We started with a flat rate company and had over 30 showings with no luck, so we searched out Susan based on neighborhood current trends and suggestions. Susan was fantastic. She was on time, honest and prepared. She came in and staged our home while we were out of town and made suggestions on what she thought could make the home “show ready”. It was a MAJOR pivot point in our showings. Susan responded to emails/ texts and phone calls within hours, if not minutes. She is top notch and sold our home in a matter of weeks vs the flat rate company who had our home listed for months…With that said, it took some work to get things done but paid off in the end. Kudos to Susan and her efforts to get us an above asking price offer. We have suggested Susan to many neighbors and friends and that is the highest compliment we can offer. She is wonderful!"

"Susan is a very professional real estate agent who listened to our specific wants and needs. Since we are from out-of-town, her knowledge about the Madison area was most helpful. Susan was great with coordinating with contractors, inspectors and came back to us with answers to our many questions. We highly recommend her for all your real estate needs."

"Dear Susan- Thank you so much for your help in finding our new home and selling our old home. You are truly amazing! You went above and beyond what we have experienced with any other realtor- and we have dealt with a few. With our next move, you will be the realtor we choose. Definitely recommend you to anyone looking to buy and/or sell."

"I had a fantastic experience working with Kate and the Alvarado Group. Kate is extremely knowledgeable about the market and all of the details of the home buying, and negotiation process. She is just great to have on your side. She is prompt, very professional, and a pleasure to work with! As a buyer, my path for finding a new home was long and Kate stuck with me through the entire process. She always put my best interest first and I ended up very happy with my new home! Thank you so much Kate and the Alvarado Group!"
“Brett, thank you for helping us find our dream home! We truly appreciate your patience, humor, and expertise throughout the process. We’re so grateful for your guidance and couldn’t be happier!”

"April Johnson with the Alvarado Real Estate Group was much more than just our Realtor, she was our project manager. April helped us figure out exactly what we needed to do to sell our house. She helped keep us organized and on task. She recommended a painter, a mason, and a roofer for our renovations. They were all very friendly and affordable, and most importantly, did a great job. April has experience in horticulture and offered great advice on landscaping to add curb appeal. I called her all the time to ask questions. She was always really good about answering my calls. I remember standing in Menards feeling bewildered about which faucet to buy, I called April and she steered me in the right direction.
When it came to buying our house, she was so good. April was our voice of reason when a house wasn’t a good investment; even if we really liked it. We found a house to buy before ours was even ready to go on the market. April negotiated an offer to purchase with a contingency of our house selling. We had many showings and multiple offers even though it was just before the holidays! Our house sold for $37,500 more than what we bought it for a year and a half prior (April was our realtor then too). We were also able to buy our new house for less than the asking price, including a major repair, and with our contingency! All of this happened in only four months. If you are looking to buy or sell, or both, I highly recommend April as your realtor. You won’t regret it."

"Julie was amazing. She did a wonderful job listening to our request and found us our dream home. I will tell everyone interested in selling or buying a home about Julie. We are completely satisfied. I am still amazed that Julie was able to find us a home with all of our requests within such a short period of time. In addition, she was very support throughout the whole process from our first meeting until closing."

"Thank you Julie for all you did for my daughter. The house is awesome and I know she is very proud and happy, which means the world to me."
"Julie is wonderful! Julie met all our needs to help us in the purchase of our new home and sale of our current house, we had a lot of balls in the air, but Julie put us at ease and made it all seem easy! I can’t imagine working with another agent. She was beyond helpful and went above & beyond for us, we are so grateful she was our agent. Thank you, thank you to Julie Colmar, our realtor and extraordinary friend, who held our open house on a Sunday and had 3 offers for us the next day, I truly can't thank her enough."
