April guided us through our recent real-estate transactions seamlessly, flawlessly and with humor which helped during days of high anxiety.
Calls always answered swiftly and questions answered thoroughly. So happy she was recommended to us. No doubt we will continue to use her as a resource.

My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend Apryl's services. She represented us recently when we bought an apartment and was--truly--the single saving grace of an otherwise horrific experience. She went above and beyond to make sure we understood all of the technicalities of the process, never hesitating to jump on the phone at a moment's notice. She was extremely patient with our many questions sent via email, and consistently sent clear and detailed responses (they were often immediate.) Most of all, we appreciated Apryl's wit--real estate in New York is brutal, and anyone who can infuse some fun into the process is worth their weight in gold. Apryl's the best. Hire her with confidence!

Apryl Hand was recommended to us by our broker when we decided to buy our house in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Apryl was responsive and efficient and trustful. The seller told us we got the house thanks to her reputation. Her services are a great value for money. She has been following up with us ever since and gave us precious advices about our next steps and how to protect our asset. We highly recommend her.

Outstanding experience with Apryl !
We sold our studio apartment in NYC last January, and the entire process was flawless.
Recommended by a friend lawyer on Long Island, Apryl was professional, knowledgeable,friendly, efficient and reasonable in terms of her closing costs.
She is easily accessible, and responds readily to phone calls, emails, texts, etc.
In addition, she has a great personality and a great sense of humor !
Without any reservations whatsoever, we absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs to navigate the rough business of real estate closing in NYC.
Trust us: she will get you to finish line stress-free !
5 stars on all accounts!

Apryl was my attorney while buying my first home. Purchasing real estate in Brooklyn is always a nebulous process. But especially being my first time, I was in over my head. Fortunately, Apryl very patiently walked me through the whole thing. She went well above and beyond her duties to make sure I protected and make wise personal investment. I recommend her to anyone buying a home in NYC. She gives it to you straight and is completely honest at every turn. She's also hilarious. You will not be disappointed!

Apryl Hand is not only a knowledgeable, professional lawyer, it is a joy to deal with her. She doesn't tell you what you WANT to hear; she tells you what you NEED to hear to close the deal. She also doesn't work by the clock and puts in as much time as she needs to get the work done. I worked with Apryl on both the sale of my Manhattan co-op and on the purchase of a home in Brooklyn. I enthusiastically recommend her to you!

As a first time home-buyer, Apryl was the best part of the whole process (no seriously everything between making an offer and closing just sucks).
Apryl represented me across two deals while purchasing my Brookyn co-op. She is tough and tells you like how it is. I was nearly in contract on my first deal when we noticed some concerning issues in the meeting minutes (Monique did a very thorough job). I asked Apryl to add in some protection for me in the contract. Apryl worked hard to get some language that would work for both of us but in the end the other party wasn't willing to compromise. I could tell this was a bad sign and wisely chose to walk away. I appreciated how Apryl had my back and wasn't pushing me to be in-contract or close.
My second deal went much smoother. With each document she sent over (and there are many...), Apryl summarized the major points in each PARAGRAPH and boiled it down to language that the layperson can understand. She was very accessible via text or email and was willing to draft together a last-minute Power of Attorney in case I was called out-of-town when closing was scheduled. All-in-all, just an awesome human being.
I can't wait to save enough pennies for the next place so she could represent me again.

Apryl represented us for our Park Slope co-op sale and was fantastic. She expertly navigated us through all the complications of a co-op sale, and boiled the legalese down to language novices could understand -- which as first time sellers we greatly appreciated! She made a very difficult experience much easier through her knowledge and great good humor. We highly recommend her!

Apryl helped me throughout the whole process of buying my first apartment. She made sure I was on top of things very step of the way and I couldn't have been happier with her as a lawyer. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone. I am looking forward to working with her years to come.

Apryl handled a tricky real estate title search and closing for me and I could not be more pleased with her services. She is every bit the shrewd, knowledgeable professional that you want in your corner in a dicey negotiation - and as a bonus, her sense of humor and her ability to explain even the most complex legal situations in plain English made the whole process downright enjoyable.
