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.

Apryl Hand was our lawyer for a complicated and drawn-out New York City cooperative purchase. If not for her expertise, responsiveness and dedication to get us to closing the deal would have fallen through a number of times. Apryl got us through it all - explaining our options at each step, keeping us from making expensive concessions, and hand holding when we needed it - to the point of editing some of our communications. At the closing, several of the other parties noted that we were lucky to have her as well - it's got to be rare that a lawyer can be a tough negotiator but not burn bridges with your future neighbors. In a word, she's terrific. I'd absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to make a real estate deal in New York City.

Apryl handled two of my purchases and a sale of my apartment. She was recommended by my broker and I was very happy the first time, so I used her again! She is very pleasant but professional and knowledgeable at the same time. She is a no non-sense, unpretentious lawyer with a sense of humor and it has always been a great experience for me.
When we recently purchased an apartment, my partner was not able to make it to the closing for a complicated reason. Everyone was ready to leave the room thinking this will be postponed. But Apryl made it happen by acting quickly and getting together necessary document so that we could close without him. I will be definitely recommending her service to anyone I know!
