Ratings & Reviews

April Fontana was the relator I chose to help sell my house, because in our neighborhood Lake View Woods she had sold a few other homes and she came highly recommended. The reason I was so happy was our sale became a nightmare due to lender issues for the buyer, however April managed to get involved and help the buyer out while his agent was out of town. She also went above and beyond keeping me in the loop of what was going on and how things were being handled, by no means was this an easy sale due to buyers issues. I want everyone to know how hard April worked to get this deal closed, with all the ups and downs she kept pushing though it and kept my feelings and needs up to speed and assuring and encouraging me, that it would all work out! I could not have asked for a better agent! I was blessed to have her in my corner and watching out for my end of the sale and having my back always. I would recommend April Fontana to anyone and everyone who would listen. She has morals and skills, compassion, lots of contacts and she gets the job done no matter what the cost to her schedule. That is a Relator I would want again and again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Ocala, FL.

April has been a delight to work with in the search for and in the purchase of our new home. We have complete trust in her knowledge of the real estate market and we trust her as a person. She is always reachable and always quick to respond to our questions. She is our agent on both ends of buying and selling our homes. We know she will continue to guide us through the process of selling our current home with continued honesty and integrity. Working with her has given my husband and myself great piece of mind. Thank you, April

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $50K in Ocala, FL.

Several months ago I was charged with the responsibility of selling our mother’s home in Ocala. Living over two (2) hours away I needed extra help in marketing the property. Not knowing any realtors in the area we asked several friends and received a list of potential candidates to manage this process. After interviewing several realtors we were fortunate enough to speak with April. What a “Home Run” we had with her selection! We didn’t get the “expected” MLS listing and multiple “Open House” events. What we did get was a focused marketing plan including the sophisticated usage of technology to identify potential buyers who were serious…not just “tire kickers”. April Fontana is a breath of fresh air. She kept us in the loop on a regular basis, representing our best interests. The consummate professional with a professional and bubbly attitude, the bottom line is that she got the job done and created a result that far exceeded our expectations. You won’t go wrong when you work with April Fontana! Thanks again for a job well done.

Sold a home in 2015 in Rainbow Lakes, Boynton Beach, FL 33472.

April is hands on and responds immediately to your needs. I really appreciated all of her help as I did not live in the area. From the first time my husband and I met her we were impressed with the way she represented herself to us. We felt like she was there for us. Whenever I called her or e-mailed her, I heard from her right away! We had a very unusual problem happen during our closing. April took care of the situation and did everything to resolve the matter. I would highly recommend April Fontana, whether you are selling or buying!

Sold a home in 2015 in Maricamp, Ocala, FL 34471.

April is wonderful to deal with! She was able to sell our vacant lot in record time, in a market where it is hard to sell vacant lots. She knows the local market and is a true professional. Now that our lot is sold, she will be helping us find our forever home! Thank you April!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Dunnellon, FL.

April sold my mom's home for more money than other agents appraised and suggested. I reside out of state and needed a broker with knowledge and expertise. April made terrific suggestions and she kept me informed throughout the entire process. I have worked with agents and brokers from my area and none have been as thorough and professional. I highly recommend April Fontana!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Ocala, FL.

November, 2014 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. L. Rogers & M. McFarlane

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Ocala, FL.

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.
