Diane is truly the best! She gave us so much time and attention and worked tirelessly to sell our home and help us buy our new home. There wasn’t a single detail she missed. She is professional, confident, positive, kind, and very knowledgeable. Diane made us feel so comfortable and cared for every step of the way. She was not only our realtor, but she has become our friend. We are so grateful for all she did for us!
What a great experience working with Diane! She is knowledgeable about the market, experienced in working with a wide variety of people, and runs her business as a true professional. Diane is one step ahead and always available for questions, feedback, or any concerns. I highly recommend her as an agent and plan to work with her again in the future.
Where to even begin. Diane treated us like family from day one. We moved to GA from Charlotte, NC area and she made every process from searching, to seeing the homes, negotiating, inspection,, walk through and closing a breeze even from a distance. She knows the real estate market and LISTENED to us and our wants and needs. She is very knowledgeable on everything, especially when it came to the negotiation and the contract.She definitely "fights" hard for her clients. I would use Diane again in a heart beat. You would have the BEST realtor in the state of GA if you choose Diane to represent you! Thank you Diane, for all you have done for us! We love our new home!
I can't imagine a better experience than working with Diane. She is so organized and professional. She was also extremely patient with us through all of our questions and needs. Diane went above and beyond to help. She also put us in touch with so many talented and friendly people who were able to help in all areas of preparing to buy and sell a house. The fact that those we met through Diane were all such good, quality people speaks volumes about her character. You cannot go wrong with Diane as your agent
