Testimonials

"April and Kelly are complete rock stars!! They are super knowledgeable, very hard working, and refreshingly creative. Jay and I were extremely impressed with the business they have built, and the services they provide. They are a full service team with a serious emphasis on marketing and social media which is so very important these days. We had multiple showings immediately. Any questions we had were answered almost immediately. They are wonderful with coordinating follow up and feedback. April and Kelly?s strengths completely complement each other and they are tons of fun as well.
Our house sold in one month, we were thrilled!! We cannot recommend this team enough.

Susan and Jay Braden (New Canaan)

"Our house went on the market two weeks before the global pandemic hit - our timing could not have been worse. But through all the confusion, uncertainty and anxiety, April and Kelly remained calm and informed, flexible and innovative. Their ability to leverage social media was critical at a time when open houses were prohibited, and their willingness to follow the strictest safety protocols when showings were allowed kept our family and our prospective buyers feeling secure."
Jeff and Laurie Walker (New Canaan)

"April and Kelly were great partners to us every step of the way and a real pleasure to work with in the selling of our house. In addition to knowing the New Canaan market cold, they also are straight shooters, there for you at every turn, passionate about the job at hand and always customer-focused."
Rich & Brenda Battista (New Canaan)

"April & Kelly turned what can be a very difficult and trying process into a successful sale. From the beginning to the end, they were available at any hour and on any day, advising on how to uniquely market our home, price it, prepare/stage it and sell it in a timely manner. We were under contract within a few weeks. Their guidance, resources and quick responses to any and all issues that arose during the short process gave us comfort throughout. We highly recommend April & Kelly to represent you in selling your home. Scott & Lisa Isherwood?"
Scott and Lisa Isherwood (New Canaan)

"April and Kelly are extremely effective. We engaged them to simultaneously sell and purchase homes for us and they did so within 30 days. Their ability to accurately position, price and stage our home enabled us to get it under contract within days. Their network of legal, repairmen and requisite service providers proved extremely helpful and efficient in closing the sale and purchase within 30 days. Finally, they were available 24/7 to answer and address any questions that arose during the sale and purchase processes. We highly recommend April & Kelly to represent you should you elect to sell your home. Steve & Jennifer Czech"

"April and Kelly have the market insight and expertise we needed to guide us through the process of selling our home. From staging, pricing and marketing all the way to closing, they helped us through every step. We can't say enough great things about this amazing team of real estate professionals."
Alexandra DeMarino (New Canaan)

"April & Kelly are a dynamic real estate duo! They each bring their own skill set and expertise to the table which gave us confidence that we were making well informed decisions when buying our current house and selling our previous house in New Canaan. They are at the top of their game when it comes to marketing, staging to sell, negotiating, and being fully in tune with the New Canaan market. They made what can be a very stressful transaction, seamless and exciting...on both buying and selling ends! They are fun, easy to work with, and incredibly quick to respond. We highly recommend using them!"
Nina and Dan Lota (New Canaan)

"Hi, I wanted to relate my recent experience working with April Kaynor and Kelly DeFrancesco on the recent sale of my home in New Canaan. I had a relationship with a long established realtor in New Canaan but sensed that in this non traditional environment I would need some innovative and fresh marketing strategies for my property. Several people in town highly recommended April and Kelly to me, my wife and I talked with them and knew immediately they were what we were looking for. A&K not only strategized our sale but helped us with what needed to be done to present our home for sale going as far as recommending contractors they work with frequently to bring a home up to snuff. They actually staged our home themselves (very tastefully) at no expense to us and launched a great social media campaign just prior to listing. We listed Saturday and had an accepted contract on Monday as a result of multiple bids, can?t ask for more than that. They are extremely positive high energy people who take it on themselves to get the job done. My advice, don?t choose a firm to sell your home choose the right sales team.

Seller (New Canaan)

"It was an absolute pleasure working with April and Kelly. We had the daunting task of selling our longtime family home remotely, and coordinating the sale in a challenging market with multiple decision makers in different locations.
With a warm and supportive approach, absolute professionalism and crystal clear communication, they went above and beyond to smooth out wrinkles along the way and make what was a painful process for our family so much easier than it could have been.
They know this market, they have ample resources to call on, and they were easy for everyone in our group to work with. I cannot recommend them more highly.

"April + Kelly are an unstoppable force in New Canaan. Their market knowledge, hustle, and authenticity are second to none!"
Russlyn & Matt Seiler (Brooklyn. NY)

"April and Kelly had been recommended to us again and again by close friends because of their professional approach, integrity and undeniable results. Thank goodness we listened! The process was surprisingly enjoyable and brief due to their sweet, yet dogged approach. Their knowledge of the industry, ability to hear our perspective and solid advice was priceless."
Andrea and Scott Martin (New Canaan, CT)

"We happened to meet April and Kelly at an open house at a New Canaan home we liked very much. Through subsequent discussions we came to realize how special April and Kelly are as individuals and as a broker team. They represented the house perfectly, but also got to know us (as non-clients) in a way to help guide us to the right decision. In the end, the house was not the right fit for us, but we realized April and Kelly would be a perfect buyer team for us!"
William and Lauren Frank (New Canaan, Ct.)

"April and Kelly fully exceeded our expectations as full service brokers during our house hunt in New Canaan. We presented them with some unique layout requirements and challenges related to our living arrangements and they quickly went to work and started showing us a variety of homes combined with ideas around making each house work to fit our family needs. The advantage in having a pair of brokers working with us was the convenience as well as the alternate point of view that comes with a team. They are both kind and honest and great at what they do. Five stars for April and Kelly!"
David Kammerer (New Canaan)

"We hear from everyone how lucky we are to have sold our house in this market. It was not luck...it was 100% because of April and Kelly!"
