It is with pleasure and gratitude that I share my comments on my experience with April Fontana of Fontana Realty in the listing and sale of my mother’s home in the Oak Run Community in Ocala, FL. While we have bought and sold a number of houses, we have never before encountered such a level of excellence.
The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of communication, competence, humility, professionalism, integrity and grace.
She clearly takes pride in doing an excellent job. In my particular case as a seller of a home via long distance, April surpassed, in every instance of the selling process, our expectations.
Thus, we highly recommend April Fontana for residential real estate needs.

April was wonderful to work with! She got us into a home quick and was very helpful throughout the entire process. Anytime we had any questions, she was available to respond and help almost immediately. It was a great experience for buying our first home. I would recommend her to anyone.

My mom had moved from up north in the fall, and unfortunately by Christmas time her husband has passed away. They had a contract with a developer, and was having a house built. Since she was down to one income, she could not afford the house, nor qualify for the mortgage. The developer absolutely refused to let her out of the contract, and would not refund her down payment. My mom decided not to live in that development for obvious reasons. April came highly recommended by a coworker. April was so patient and understanding with my mom through the whole process, considering all the terrible circumstances that my mom had been through. She was so helpful in finding a home my mom is comfortable in, and in a subdivision that met all my mom's needs. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend April Fontana to everyone. You will not find a more attentive and caring realtor.

April is superb. She sold my house quickly in a tough market. She always responded quickly when I contacted her and went above and beyond to make sure the sale process proceeded smoothly. I would definitely use her again.

April was referred to us by a local in Ocala and immediately went to work for us after speaking with us about the type and location of homes we were interested in. We were pleased with all the homes she showed us in the first couple of days. We had to return to our home out-of-state and she gave us excellent info on the houses we were most interested in. She helped us locate a mortgage lender who we were happy with and on our 2nd trip, we selected the one we were most pleased with and she carried on to closing.
