Get to Know April Strickland
I am a born and raised Florida girl! I moved to Gainesville, FL when I was 6 years old and have been a Gator Fan ever since!

I was raised working on homes and remodeling and then renting/selling them with my family. I started a construction company when I was 17 years old with my father, Ark Remodeling and Construction. I ran Ark for 9 years, and I then went to work with the popular ABC show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. On the show I helped plan and build homes in a matter of 106 hours start to finish, overseeing thousands of people on million dollar homes.

After being on the road full time for a while with the TV show, I have finally been able to return to Gainesville, to return to what I love, dealing with homes, businesses and people. I am able to use my vast knowledge from Ark, Extreme, and growing up in the business and use it to my clients advantage.


I specialize in the following Areas:


- New Homes (I have built multiple new homes)

- Homes in distress (I have remodeled 100's of homes)

- Gainesville, FL Area

- Alachua County, Marion County, Columbia County

- New Home Buyers


My knowledge of how homes and structures are built and remodeled give me a unique perspective on the buying and selling process.


I am able to use my knowledge from working with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, as well as running Ark Remodeling and Construction, to my clients advantage. My goal is to expand your horizons.
