Sold the unsellable and got us our Dream Home!!.
Tenacious realtor! Fights for what you need/want and will be very receptive to your desires! I can't say enough about April and her team!!
Excellent customer service and highly, highly recommended. April was our 3rd realtor after a year and a half on the market and pulled the sale within a month!! A true miracle worker!!
Background: My fiance and I were relocating to Nashville from New Orleans on short notice. We were crammed for time, could only find pet-friendly lodging (local events were going on) at a lower end motel, and had a modest first-time home buyer budget. After a friend-of-a-friend fell through, I found April on City Search. I was initially reluctant to go with a realtor based solely on internet feedback, but I'm so glad I did!
April and her team went above and beyond what we could've hoped for. We wanted a place that was within a 25 minute commute of downtown, had plenty of greenspace where we could bring our dogs (ideally a lake for our lab!), and a safe community. April introduced us to the Old Hickory Village area, which was a perfect fit for our needs-- complete with lake access! April understood our apprehensions about investing in a house early on in our professional lives, and helped guide us toward a place that is as historically established as it gets and was within the lower range of our budget.
Unlike other realtors we spoke with, she placed our needs first. Rather than trying to convince us of what we should want, she showed us a ton of different areas and genuinely listened to our response. With our time-pressured situation, she went out of her way to make sure we weren't rushed into buying something toward the upper end of our budget, or something that didn't fit our "wishlist". Throughout early negotiations and closing she represented our interests with a ferocious (yet gracious) tenacity. She made our first-time home buying experience an enjoyable one, and we couldn't recommend her more highly.
A Great Realtor....
My husband and I just bought our first home and from day one April was there to help us!! April "held our hand" from the first time we met her to the closing of our new home!! With April we were treated as if we had a million dollar budget, she was available anytime of day and was always ready to help answer questions or to show a home. She was always willing to work around our schedule and meet early in the morning or later in the evening, on weekends or weekdays!!!
We look forward and plan to work with April with any of our future housing needs!!! If you are looking for your first home or 10th home I am sure April would be of great for you!!
Honest Realty in a Harsh Reality.
As first time home buyers, we were very excited, but also very unsure of the process. After a nightmare experience with another Nashville realty team, and a bank who lost our loan application, we were referred to April by a relative who had found her on CitySearch. It was hard to believe she was really going to help us the way that she promised, but she truly did. She even went above and beyond what anyone else would do. Her team is AMAZING! When we found a property we liked, and wanted to see more pictures, her assistant was able to find more, and e mail them to us -- just instant results and satisfaction all around. She referred us to an incredibly knowledgeable lender, David Porter, He let us know that obtaining our loan would not be a problem. Absolutely thrilled and astounded, we asked what the next step was! He said to go find a house...and that we did! April showed us all the houses we were interested in, and pointed out the good and bad in each one. We finally found the perfect house for our family and we wrote up an offer. She knows all the ins and outs of contracts, and negotiated an AMAZING deal for us, which included appliances, furniture, curtains, and closing costs-- over $5000 in consessions! During closing, we were actually handed a $500 check (a refund of the "earnest money") because she had negotiated so well, that ALL the fees were taken care of! How many people can say that?
Which ever side you're on -- buying or selling -- you will want April on YOUR side!
This whole experience with April has been life changing. She is an amazing, hard working, and gifted woman. The perfect mix of warm and friendly, and professional. She is truly one of a kind. We consider her a friend for life! If you are looking to buy or sell a home, and want to be helped by someone who truly loves what they do, and actually puts your best interest FIRST, don't hesitate for a second -- Go with April Consulo!!
Team Consulo - #1 Real Estate Agent in Nashville. April Consulo is outstanding. Her knowledge, history, reputation, and awesome team made our home sale and selection process very easy. April and her staff sold our home in the Franklin area in 4 days. Although the actual sales process was relatively short, her preparation and work that led to the sale of our home was a process of over 1 year. April spent many nights working late with us in our home to sort out the many questions we had about upgrading to larger home. She also advised us on the appropriate timing to sell our home based on what we were looking to move into and what the market trends were suggesting. April showed unbelievable patience and understanding when at times I'm sure it was tough. April also handled the purchase of our new home as well. She was more than happy to lead the charge and find us exactly what our family needed. During the selection process, the main thing we appreciated about April was that she constantly communicated with us and we really relied on her input and direction to help guide us. It was a reassuring feeling to know we could rely on April to help answer the tough questions not typically thought about when purchasing a home (area, price, builders, seller agent). Once we decided on a place, the rest was so easy - it was a celebration process rather than a stress-filled process. If you are in the market to sell, purchase or do both in the Nashville or surrounding area, you need to sit down with April and she will earn your respect both on a personal and professional level. Our family has truly found an "Agent for Life". THANKS APRIL!
April Consulo - gets it done!. After deciding on the Nashville area as our future home, we looked for a realtor by searching for the "best, number one", etc. April's name came to the top, and the rest is history. After an initial face to face meeting on our way through town, April knew exactly what we were looking for in a home. Living 500 miles away, this was really important. We called her over the next eight months with questions about potential homes we saw on the MLS. Several times April went to check out these homes to see if they were a perfect match for us. For eight months, the answer was no. Then one Monday, standing inside a home we had questioned her about, she sounded so excited that we got in the car within an hour, and started our drive. We saw the home on Tuesday, put in our offer on Wednesday, and the deal was accepted by that afternoon. We had seen the home one time! But because April knew what we wanted, we trusted her enough to drive the 500 miles on the spur of the moment, and make our offer. We're still thrilled with our new home, and can't wait to actually live there, when it's time to retire. Thanks a million April! Carol and Lance
A friend in Nashville.
We were connected with April following our decision to move to the Nashville area. I cannot overemphasize how professional April has been throughout the transition from our old home to the new one. Immediately, we felt a connection and realized that she was concerned with our happiness in a new home. Through the close of our new house, she stayed in constant contact and served as a strong advocate for our voice to the sellers, our lender, and all others involved in the process.
April was our life line. Due to our use of an out of state lender (Wells Fargo Home Mortgage), who we discovered, far to late, was unfamiliar with the Tennessee market and largely unconcerned with our situation, we experienced unnecessary difficulties the day prior to close that almost cancelled our new mortgage. With our previous home sold and all belongings in transit through a national carrier, my wife and I --along with our two young sons--were financial hostages in a nightmare scenario between homes in Texas and Tennessee. Feeling as if we were out at sea in a life raft, our hope came from April, who stayed in telephone contact with us well into the evening and the next day trying to reschedule our closing to meet the mandate of our lender. While we travelled, she was working with with the seller's agent and our mortgage agent in Texas to resolve the situation.
We have never experienced this level of involvement from a realtor and will highly recommend April to new buyers. Since our closing, April has made several visits to the house to see how we have settled, and she has invited us out for dinner twice. She is a giving person and concerned about her clients on a highly personal level. We are glad to call her a friend.
My advice for buying a home in Nashville:
1. Use an in-state lender who knows the market.
2. Call April Consulo when buying or selling your home.

Great realtor!. We knew from the get-go that there was something special about April Consulo. Never have we witnessed a realtor who paid so much attention to detail, and brought incredible expertise and professionalism to the table at every opportunity. In the toughest real estate market this area has seen in decades, April sold our house in one week. She also helped find us the perfect new home and guided us through our many questions and doubts. Her experience was invaluable to us as things came up which were unexpected. However, April calmed our fears and came through for us in ways we wouldn't have even imagined. Thanks again April for your care and concern over us. We'll be working with you again in the years to come!
April Consulo is the BEST!.
