She took the time to really understand what it was we wanted in our dream home

April was an absolutely amazing partner to have in our house hunting process and a pleasure to work with. She took the time to really understand what it was we wanted in our dream home, and made sure to narrow our focus specifically to the homes and area that hit each and every of our (in all   honesty, many) must have list items. In addition to a current, relevant and astute knowledge of the local real estate market; April also brings years of personal experience with the area and has provided endless tips and guidance on everything from local lifestyle, entertainment and enough dining recommendations to keep us busy for quite some time. Truly a smooth and easy process.

April ALWAYS found time for us and NEVER once pressured us

We cannot say enough good things about April. Throughout our 3+ year process of looking at homes in Westchester county, April ALWAYS found time for us and NEVER once pressured us. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and extremely professional, reliable and accessible. We could not recommend her more highly.

user3826861 - September 8, 2020

Ultimately, she found us the perfect home in just the knick of time

April is the dream agent! As a first time homebuyer in an area we were newly familiar with, we had lots of questions. April was always incredibly patient and highly responsive to all of our needs. She quickly picked up on exactly what we were looking for and never led us astray. Her market insights were spot on! Ultimately, she found us the perfect home in just the knick of time. We have her to thank for being so happy with our decision. Would highly recommend April.

zuser20140602125036860 - September 8, 2020

You’ve been incredible throughout this entire process

April, thank you so, so, so much for everything! You’ve been incredible throughout this entire process and we can’t tell you how lucky we feel to have found you to help us find our home. We can’t wait to have you over for dinner once everything is done!

Robert - September 1, 2020

I would like to share with you another
outstanding happy experience with
Houlihan Lawrence in Rye.
Yesterday we closed Title on the sale of
my home in Harrison.
The contract and closing went smoothly
We sold our home to the first couple who
came to see it.
This at a time when other homes in Harrison
and the immediate area were languishing
and suffering on the market in some cases
for up to a year.
Our sale was accomplished thru the efforts
of April Saxe benefiting from the Team spirit 
developed at Houlihan Lawrence. April was able to price the home correctly and show it to its best effect and identify a buyer who would be sure to
qualify for it for purchase.

H/L’s superiority was exemplified in this transaction.

Marilyn - December 9, 2019

Very knowledgeable about the area

"I can highly recommend April as she is professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. She is very responsive and works hard to make the process as easy as possible for her clients. By understanding her clients well she makes sure to direct the searches to homes that will be a good fit. April will definitely go the extra mile for her clients - and their families - both during the searching process and after. Thank you April!"


Liezel - September 11, 2019

Her knowledge of the Westchester market is unparalleled. Her enthusiasm is infectious.

“My wife and I had been looking to move from NYC to Westchester and didn't have an immediate need to relocate. April worked with us over a two year period until she found us that one perfect home for our family. April committed herself fully for the long term and never suggested compromise was an option. Her knowledge of the Westchester market is unparalleled. Her enthusiasm is infectious. The slog from home to home can be exhausting but her optimism never wavers. No matter how many homes she sells she never forgets the personal importance of the process for her clients. April makes you feel like a friend first and a client second. There are no words I could use that could completely and accurately convey how strongly I recommend someone work with April.”

You are great at what you do. Thank you for everything.


Jimmy G. - September 6, 2019

I really appreciated that April was looking out for us instead of doing a sale

April helped us with a relocation from DC to Westchester county. Her local knowledge was second to none - she grew up and still lives in the Larchmont / Rye area. The one thing I appreciated most about April is that she put herself in our shoes and worked really hard to find a place that we would love. We spent months looking and were outbid a couple times. But she was always the first to say “don’t make yourself like this house because you’re running out of time”. I really appreciated that April was looking out for us instead of doing a sale. April is also super responsive and went above and beyond - from scheduling architects to taking our kids to the beach on closing day. It felt like we were her only clients (which obviously wasn’t the case in the summer peak season). April is an excellent agent and one of the nicest people you’ll meet. Highly recommended!Less

Johan and Leitzel - September 6, 2019

This is our second time working with April

I highly recommend April Saxe. This is our second time working with April and on both transactions she went above and beyond. April has this unique ability to work through any situation so that the outcome is positive. She guides you without being invasive. April is always available...always. There are so many qualities that April possesses that are admirable, but one that sticks out to me is that she really puts her heart into each experience. She is not just trying to make another deal...she really cares about the outcome and that it is the best possible outcome for her client.

pleasant manner and professional expertise

Dear April-

I am so pleased to hear ... closed today.

You have been fantastic!
I cannot thank you enough for all your
patience, pleasant manner and professional expertise.
I am so pleased you were the selling agent representing the ...
I hope to refer you to other family and friends.

Again many thanks for all your hard work.
Look forward to seeing you @Houlihan
Lawrence when I return.

All the best-


Marilyn - March 8, 2019

Thank you for your help, your patience...


Carol and I wanted to thank you for your help, your patience, your persistence, and your many courtesies as we looked for and finally closed on our new home. You have been a great person to work with and we appreciate it!

We look forward to having you over when we are furnished and moved in!

With kind regards,



Steve and Carol - March 8, 2019

We can’t thank you

We can’t thank you enough for everything you have done. You’ve been among other things a great therapist. 

Looking forward to seeing you soon.

All the best and love

Janet - February 15, 2019

April (May and June),
We can’t thank you enough for your patience and endurance through a very challenging process and ultimate sale of our home.
April, if it wasn’t for your flexibility and negotiating skill this deal would have fallen apart months ago.
This is a testament to you all.

Much appreciated,
Bob and Laura

I feel lucky to have had April in our corner.

I highly recommend April Saxe, from both a seller and a buyer perspective. She is a true professional: honest, knowledgeable, extremely responsive, and accommodating. My husband and I got to know her well over the past 15 months, and we found her to be refreshingly down to earth, and  approachable. April sold our previous house in Rye Brook, which was a challenge she took head on. It’s was a stressful situation at times. We had multiple potential buyers involved, and ultimately a leaking underground oil tank we needed to clean up and replace. April went above and beyond to help guide us through that process, and got us our asking price. I don’t know what we would have done without her. She also helped us find our current home in Scarsdale. We looked for the better part of a year, and never once felt rushed. April made sure that we were able to see the houses we were interested in very quickly. We bought in a market where houses are selling very quickly, and bidding wars are commonplace, so this was critical. Toward the end of our search, we started feeling a little discouraged, but April was always positive. She encouraged us not to settle and she was right. We ended up with a house we both love. April always had, and continues to have, our best interests in mind. I feel lucky to have had her in our corner.

Jacine - September 28, 2017

kind, down-to-earth, direct and honest

I would without hesitation recommend April to a friend or relative looking in the Larchmont or Rye area. She is kind, down-to-earth, direct and honest, and super responsive. She grew up in the area, so knows the nuances of the different streets, parks, camps, etc. She got us in to see the new  listings as soon as they came on so we would be able to get our bids in time. She didn't waste our time with listings that wouldn't be a fit for our family. April also went above and beyond being helpful like meeting me at a house with an architect, picking me up at the train station, etc. Overall, a wonderful experience. My kids and I miss hanging out with her now that the deal is done!

Elizabeth - July 14, 2018

Subject matter expert

April is truly a subject matter expert with the warmth and competence to be an excellent partner throughout the purchase process. April advised us through the process of relocating from New York City and purchasing our first home. From choosing a location to touring homes to negotiating (and  winning) a bidding war, April's coaching was unmatched; we cannot recommend April highly enough!

Courtney - July 14, 2018

Ultimate professional

We highly recommend April to anyone. She was our agent twice, as first time buyers and then again several years later as we sold our home. She is a wealth of knowledge and insight and the ultimate professional. We loved working with April and many of our friends are family have had the same  experience!

Ali - July 10, 2018

Sophisticated real estate agent

April is a sophisticated real estate agent who not only knows her local market really well but is also super effective in guiding clients through the negotiation and sales process. She is honest, straightforward and makes herself available and accessible at any time. It's never easy to work  through the process of buying or selling a house, but working with April made selling our first home such a positive process for our family

Sandy - July 14, 2018

April was honest, responsive and helpful

April is an excellent real estate agent. As Buyers, April provided us with detailed information about the local market and was very knowledgeable about the housing inventory and different neighborhoods in Harrison, Rye and the surrounding areas. Throughout the process, April was honest, responsive and helpful. We have a ton of respect for her and her team. We highly recommend working with her.

J Danziger - July 14, 2018

Highly skilled proffesional

April is a highly skilled professional in Real Estate. She worked with us

substantially in advance of our sale and was excellent in providing us with

advice on home presentation, market expectations and sales timing. We sold

our home with her in under 90 days and she is highly recommended.

Mike - October 10, 2017

Bottom Line

“Bottom-line - We listed our home with April and it sold in a day at over

asking price. April is market savvy - knows Rye market dynamics in great detail

and we're thrilled with the price. We have previously bought/sold 9 other

properties. She counseled us on timing our listing and handled all the details

herself. Very hands-on and always available. She brought a highly qualified

buyer to us. The closing took all of 49 minutes. April Saxe is the most

professional real estate executive we have worked with over the course of 35

years. No wonder she is one of, if not the top listing agent in the area”

John - October 10, 2017

Knowledgeable, patient

As first time buyers we needed a real estate agent who was knowledgeable, patient and had an in depth understanding of the local market.  We found all of that in April.  Throughout our entire home search she was our partner.  She truly took the time to get to know us in order to help us find the perfect town, neighborhood and home to raise our family in.  

April's assistance and support didn't stop when we closed, she was also instrumental in making our transition from New York City to Rye seamless.  Her knowledge of the area is unsurpassed and she was able to help us with everything from schools to decorators.  Months after moving in she is still our first call for recommendations.  We couldn't be happier in our new home and we have April to thank for that.

Top-class at doing your job

Thanks for all your help in finding a home. We had a great experience working with you and we both think you're top-class at doing your job.


- We never felt rushed or pressured into anything.  We only ever felt you were interested in helping us find the right home and were prepared to wait until 'it' came along. Even when places were clearly going to be 'hot' you never put pressure on us.
- You are very patient and flexible. You allowed us to explore and go on our own journey. I think this is important that the clients be allowed to learn and explore for themselves - whilst there may be shortcuts for experienced buyers, for new buyers like us, we needed to go on the journey to help us understand what we want.

- You have a great design sense and vision for what 'could be'. We found this very valuable and can help us overcome myopic issues and see a place for what it can be versus what it is.

- You gave us an opinion. You were prepared to offer a POV versus taking a 'everything is wonderful' stance. This gives you credibility and really helps us, newcomers to the area, navigate the inventory.

- You are always kind, pleasant and up-beat. You were nothing but a pleasure to be with and to work with.

- You are always super-responsive and 'on it'.

So we wanted to say a BIG thank you April. we would wholeheartedly recommend you and had a great 'first' experience buying a home with you.

Hard work and patience

Dear April,
Clarisa and I are so grateful for all your great support in helping us find our house in Rye.
We really appreciate your hard work and patience. We are also very confident we came to the best available option.
I hope we will meet again in the near future in Rye!

All the best,

Clarisa & Gabriel - July 12, 2016

As smooth as it could possibly be

"When we began looking for a house in Larchmont, we couldn't figure out how we'd be able to accomplish house-hunting while managing work and two children in NYC. Fortunately, April did most of the work for us by paying such close attention to what we were looking for and guiding our search expertly. She made our search for new home as smooth as it could possibly be."


Marion & John

The sharpest agent

We can’t thank April enough for helping us get from the city to our dream home.  The time she spent with us exploring neighborhoods and visiting open houses allowed us to get comfortable with one of the most important decisions we have ever made.  We never felt rushed and had a trusted advisor next to us during every step of the process.  When it came time to buy the perfect house in a highly competitive process, we felt like we had an unfair advantage with the sharpest agent in the game working on our behalf – we closed quickly and at the right price.  I could not imagine doing this without April and we give her the highest possible recommendation to all of our friends.

Emily & John

An expert on the local housing market

I am writing to express sincere thanks for the services of April Saxe as provided during our lengthy search for our first home. My wife and I were referred to April with high marks and we were not disappointed. April is clearly an expert on the local housing market and her familiarity with living and working in the Westchester area provided much-needed insight to us as a couple from outside the immediate area. 
April was quite patient during our search process, which eventually extended to nearly 9 months of time. Her deep knowledge and willingness to work with our busy schedule was greatly appreciated. Her ability to help us get to the right home at the right budget was indispensable to finding the best option for us. 
We will soon be moving into the home in Mamaroneck we purchased with April’s help and would gladly recommend her to anybody looking for a new home in Westchester.

Joe & Helen

The smoothest buying experience

Hi April,

Thanks again for the smoothest buying experience we could have asked for! We're looking forward to having you and the rest of your crew over sometime soon. 

See you soon, and thanks again!



She goes above and beyond the call of duty

April made our move from Texas to New York a seamless one. We opted to rent for our first year in New York in order to get the lay of the land. Not only did April secure a rental home for us, she familiarized us with various Westchester communities, and made vital recommendations to us with regard to pediatricians and goings on about town. She even welcomed us to the neighborhood with a dinner party. When we were ready to search for a home to purchase, we immediately called April to help guide us in this effort. Today, we are in a home that exceeded our expectations and are indebted to April, as she goes above and beyond the call of duty.

Alexis and Brendan

Honest and direct approach

April Saxe was exactly what I was looking for in a real estate agent, especially as a first-time buyer. Her honest and direct approach throughout the process made me extremely confident that we were making the right decision when we did find the right home. Your first purchase can be overwhelming, but with April's expertise at our disposal we knew what to expect at every turn. Without her we would have been lost - instead, we know that we found a great home and at great value.


The best!

You have been very supportive to us in the whole process of renting our house out and taking care of the house. You made the whole process as smooth as possible to us. Thanks for all your help. You are the best! 

Ana & Jorge Z.

She was attentive to what we wanted and needed

"We first met April eight years ago when we moved to Rye from the City. At that time, even though we were interested in only renting, April was adept at finding us exactly what we wanted. We were looking at towns throughout Westchester County and through April's knowledge of the area, it quickly became apparent that Rye was the best place for our family. Over half a decade later, when we decided to finally buy a home in Rye, April was our first call. She was attentive to what we wanted and needed in our new house and worked patiently for many, many months with us as we became familiar with the extremely competitive market. Our transaction was not as straightforward as most, and April expertly guided us through the process, always looking after our interests. We highly recommend April and Houlihan Lawrence to anyone seeking to buy or sell a house in Rye".


April is professional, diligent and personable

She helped us navigate our Westchester search and had great insight on the communities and schools we were looking for homes in. She will help you find the right home for your family not just a house.

Hard working, trustworthy, creative and thoughtful

I have been a real estate developer for 25 years and started working with April exclusively in 2004.During the past 10 years we have worked on over 100 transactions together and I have found April to be very hard working, trustworthy, creative and thoughtful about everyone involved. April acts more like a "partner" than broker with her clients which have lead to great success for all involved. April and I have had many challenges over the years but thanks to April's perspective and creative approach have always managed to have a satisfying end result. I have enjoyed the friendship we have developed and look forward to many more years working together. If you want a broker who will act more like your partner than just your realtor you should feel very confident that is what you will get when you retain April Saxe. Thank you for all the years of hard work and dedication.
