After helping us establish our key requirements we were sent daily lists of properties in our price range.

"As a retired financial planner, I can honestly say that the biggest and most emotional investment that you will ever make is buying a home. To avoid costly mistakes you need a real expert in their field and a true professional. That is exactly what I got from April Williams two years ago when I purchased a house in downtown Toronto. I was so impressed by her that I promised that she would get the listing when it was time to sell. I kept my promised and April and her team did an unbelievable job of marketing and selling our property within a week of listing. Her advice was flawless and her whole team was outstanding. April also worked very hard to help us buy another property that we just love."
"Kevin Yu was fantastic. Working with an intense buyer, he stepped up and effectively managed the process for us for over 6 months while we searched for the perfect home. Well, we found it! Kevin never gave up and overall, did a fantastic job with every facet of the process. April Williams is also a great team member. She was available last minute when Kevin couldn’t meet us at a home. Definitely a well-rounded solid team that addresses every need imaginable."

"My husband and I were thrilled to have April working for us to find a home. She was exceptionally knowledgeable, gave us great advice and guidance, and really listened to us about our needs and wants, and incorporated them into our search. She found us the perfect house, and we couldn’t be happier!"
Carla S & David R
April, wanted to take a minute to acknowledge your proficiency and excellence in representing our sale. After our experience last year [with another agent] it was great observing the professionalism with which you handled the process. Kindest regards.”
As a first time home buyer filled with questions and nerves, I really appreciated working with April Williams. I can’t imagine a more positive introduction into the world of real estate. First of all, she is lightning quick with email to answer any questions that you have — and none are too small. Secondly, her heart is totally in the job and she is never pushy or only interested in making a sale. Thirdly, she is very knowledgeable about the area you’re looking to buy in and does her research ahead of time to tell you all manner of things (good or bad) you might not know about the neighbourhood. And last but not least, her office is attentive to all the little things that makes buying a home more enjoyable, throwing in little touches like free pizza on your moving day. ‘Above and beyond’ are words that come to mind when I think of April and her team. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy downtown.”
“April and Kevin make a great team and I had a great experience having them represent me. They walked me through all aspects of selling my condo and arranged everything on my behalf. I am very satisfied with the work they did for me and will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for an agent.”
“April has a very personable approach in dealing with clients. Her willingness to listen to clients’ concerns and explain clauses in legal documents is something that I personally find very helpful. Last but not least, she and her team added a personal touch to the deal (taking care of dinner on my moving day) that is above and beyond what other agents will do. Working with her, Kevin and Marlena has been a wonderful experience.”
"As first time home buyers we had many questions and concerns with regards to buying a condo. Kevin went above and beyond all expectations we had for a realtor. From our initial meeting to the day we moved in, we felt like we were Kevin’s only clients. Kevin treated us like VIP’s and we appreciate everything he has done for us. We would not hesitate to recommend Kevin to family and friends and would be very happy working with him again in the future."

"We could not have asked for a more perfect agent than April Williams. My husband and I butted heads throughout the entire process, everything he liked, I hated and vice versa. April was a breath of fresh air for us both, she was patient, calming, detail orientated, knowledgeable and focused on both of our needs/wants. When a home came up for sale in that area she was quick to get us in, reviewed all the details thoroughly, and guided us to eventually purchase the property. We had to sell our condo fast, and April sold it within very tight time frame. She truly is a unique agent, her professional demeanour and her grasp on the Toronto market made us full trust her and the amazing team at W&Y Homes Co."
Rosanna & Paolo B

From the initial discussions to the close of the sale, she ensures every single detailed is covered, the entire process is completely transparent and all of her clients’ questions is answered. Her dedication and passion for satisfying the needs of her clients is inspiring. I highly recommend working with her and wouldn’t even consider working with anyone else for my future purchases.”
“When we think of April Williams from W&Y Homes Co, four words come to mind – patient, professional, honest and knowledgeable. She took the time to walk us through every step along the way and was always available to answer all of our many questions. The task of looking for your first home is a daunting one and we’re so glad we had April on our side. She’s a true professional who absolutely loves what she does and we would recommend April to anyone who is looking to buy and sell."
Matt D and Adriana L
“There is no doubt that it was Kevin’s expertise, professionalism and his experience that sold our property. Kevin brought to the table a wealth of knowledge and research which helped us properly prepare our property for the buyer. Without Kevin I firmly believe that our property would not have sold and we would have been in a very tough situation. The level of communication, commitment and dedication from Kevin and his team is without equal. I look forward to working with Kevin and recommending him in the future.”
Jeremy F and Melanie S
“We were referred to Kevin Yu from W&Y Homes Co through friends of ours that have used his services and were blown away by the level of service and industry knowledge. From there we sat down with Kevin to get to know him and his process further and were further convinced he was the right person to sell our 2 bedroom and den condo in the Annex. Kevin came prepared to handle our listing, knowing the Toronto market as well as having an extremely firm grasp of the market in our immediate area. Kevin really studied comparables, floor plans, views, etc to come up with the right price for our condo. We appreciated his upfront, no nonsense approach. Kevin gave us some tips and staging, talked about how next steps would work and more than anything really made us feel comfortable with the process. Not more than 12 hours after listing our condo it was sold for full list price, a price that we were very happy with. Kevin brought the right agents and buyers to the table right away. Kevin’s network really made all the difference. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone out there looking for the right agent to help them out in their purchase or sale.”
Andrew S & Katharine P
“As a 1st time home buyer I really didn’t know much about the process of buying a house. Kevin from W&Y Homes Co was the best agent I could ask for, from start to acceptance! He has amazing patience, knows his areas and does his homework. He was also able to recommend mortgage people and lawyers for closing if I needed them. I appreciated his ability to show me things at the last minute and not be pushy when multiple offers scared me into not bidding! As scary and stressful as buying your 1st house is, I really lucked into such a great agent with Kevin – dealing with him was the easy part!!”
“As a single parent I was apprehensive about finding the ‘right’ salesperson to sell my home. I was so fortunate to find Kevin Yu from W&Y HomesCo. From our very first discussion to the sale of my home, he blew me away! He is professional, honest, accessible, friendly (always smiling) but more importantly he is extremely knowledgeable about the housing market. He gave me some suggestions on improving my home – small improvements which made a big difference – I almost did not want to sell it ! The first day he put it on the market I got several showings and an offer. My house was sold to the first people who looked at the house at a price which was more than I anticipated. I could not ask for more from an agent! I feel very confident in recommending Kevin to anyone who is buying or selling a home. If I ever buy or sell another home, I will definitely be looking forward to working with him again. Thank you Kevin!”
“I have had the pleasure of working with April from W&Y HomesCo as my agent twice now over the past few years. Both times she has been a real joy to work with. She is very informed, helpful, knowledgeable, always willing to assist in any way or answer any questions I may have and is a very nice, genuine and honest person to deal with. Her professionalism and warm personality take a lot of stress out of the buying and selling process. I would recommend April to anyone looking for a decent, hard-working and thoughtful agent who will get you whatever you are looking for.”
“April Williams from W&Y HomesCo is among the best real estate agents in the industry. When I was shopping for my first home, I had no idea what I wanted or where. April was very patient and showed me several places in different neighbourhoods. She was always available, even on weekends, to take me to open houses. I must have seen over 100 places before I bought. She was never pushy and always gave me the best advice and helped me get my current house at the price I wanted, even though there were 10 other bids on the property. I would have put an offer on another property, had she not informed me of the proximity to the meat packing factory and the plans for another condo building going up right behind the townhouse. April is the most personable, friendly and knowledgeable real estate agent to deal with in Toronto and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate in the city.”
As his slogan goes Kevin Yu, working for you! (Kevin’s old slogan before joining forces with April) this is exactly what Kevin does and then some! We are ecstatic about our new home in the city and this dream was made reality with Kevin’s dedication and passion for his clients. As we were both first time home buyers, one can only imagine the questions, fears, anxieties and stress that accompanied this huge decision and ultimately largest life purchase but Kevin was able to comfort us in every way possible. He provided us with detailed answers, clarifications and re-assurance every step of the way. The amount of time he spent with us as well as how accessible he was to us at anytime was beyond any expectations we ever had regarding an agent. He was on top of every aspect be it research, communication with involved parties as well as simply taking the time to truly understand what we were looking for in order to make the process as seamless and exciting as possible. We really can’t thank Kevin enough for his commitment to client satisfaction and his passion for honest and genuine business. With Kevin on your side, you will walk away more than happy about your purchase and impressed at how well you were taken care of by this remarkable agent, guaranteed! Thanks again Kevin!!”
Natalie S & Jane
“April was all that we could have hoped for in an Agent and more. From our very first meeting we trusted her judgement and skill. The rapport that we developed helped to make a stressful time in our lives incredibly easy, and in retrospect – very enjoyable. As first time home-buyers we inundated her with questions and concerns and she guided us through the entire process ensuring that we bought a house that reflects our style and personality while fitting perfectly within our budget. We would recommend April without trepidation to anyone.”
Craig K & Dianne O
“We were under pressure to find a home fast, when we found out we had twins on the way. Kevin worked exceptionally hard to get in as many viewings as possible and keep us updated with fresh listings. We found ourselves in multiple offer situations but Kevin guided us through and gave us perspective during these high-pressure moments. He is exceptionally pleasant to both his clients, and other agents. In situations where more than one bid is on the table, it is great to have Kevin on your side. His research on comparables and area is thorough, he will help you feel comfortable about your bid and his positive attitude is infectious, which could help make or break the deal when presenting in person. Thank-you Kevin for helping us purchase our house and for all your ongoing efforts, including your trade referrals, which helped us, make this house into a home.”
Sarah K and Chris H
“I can’t say enough positive things about my experience working with April Williams. I was buying my very first place and had a ton of questions but thankfully April was there to guide me through the process. I was blown away by her knowledge of the downtown condo market. She knew what I was looking for and helped me see a ton of great places. When the time came to make an offer, she covered all of the fine details and made sure I was confident with my decision. April’s upbeat personality and positive attitude made me feel at ease. She was always available to answer my questions and made sure my concerns were addressed in a timely manner. If you’re looking to purchase your first place, I highly recommend working with April. She made what could have been a stressful experience a very exciting one.”
“We bought our Toronto home in November of 2009 and April Williams was our agent. At the time, being first time home buyers with many uncertainties and apprehensions, April truly made us feel she was there for us. Whether you’re a seasoned property owner or the aforementioned rookie, you will appreciate her customer focus, experience and network of professionals. April researched/ communicated in detail and made a lot of time for us. At first, when she brought us to a couple of places we weren’t sure of, she openly listened to/ learned from our feedback and then found us better leads. When we were greenly considering a risky investment, April was very honest, provided us an honest home inspector, informed us and then provided us with better opportunities. The home inspector April connected us with was top notch and we were left with a sense of value and appreciation for the whole process. This directly helped us to avoid buying a home with major problems. The inspector documented serious structural issues that were not obvious to the eye. We know that a lot of inspectors miss things and appreciate April’s professional connections in this regard. April has an overtly positive attitude and a keen customer-focused sensibility. We will absolutely trust her as the realtor for our future purchases and both feel very confident referring April to any prospective home buyer. She will have your best interest in mind, she’ll listen to you, act appropriately and inform you such that you will make the right choice for your purchase and home.”
