My Client Reviews
You are missing out if Diane is not a part of your team in the home buying process. Talk about someone who has your back, goes the extra mile, and keeps up great communication from start to finish. I always felt well informed, could ask any question, and knew that I was taken care of. In a market that has been wild, that is priceless.

Diane was our guide through a treacherous market, handling both the sale of a 1904 Victorian in an urban neighborhood to a full acre in an outer suburb. She advised us what touch ups to take on before going on the market, then staged and marketed our home. She understood both settings completely, priced our old home to maximize our upside, then negotiated a discount on the buy side. If you need an expert to navigate selling or buying (or both), there is absolutely no one better than Diane.
Diane is incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate process, market trends, and effective strategies in this highly competitive market. Her exceptional service and expertise is why I always use Diane for my real estate needs. While purchasing a condo, Diane's dynamic negotiation skills assured a great price. This past month, Diane managed all aspects of selling our family condo; including thorough research to establish the right listing price, recommended improvements to achieve maximum sellers price, in addition to helping us through our remodeling process. After receiving multiple offers, Diane sold our condo for over the asking price. We could not be happier! I have recommended Diane to friends and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Realtor.

We absolutely could not be happier about our experience working with Diane. She was at all times attentive to our wants and needs in our home while also always providing insight about the local housing market and what other options were available. She helped us search high and low throughout Snohomish County and never once lacked the knowledge of the local neighborhoods help us make the best decision possible. We wrote a lot of offers, always slightly tweaking based on her recommendation to be as competitive as possible. And in the end we ended up exactly where we wanted to be. 10/10 review from my wife and me! Have Diane help you get into your next home, you will not regret it.
I can not say relocating to Edmonds, WA from CO was an easy task especially during the COVID-19 Pandemic. I feel Diane and I both learned a lot through this experience. Diane was contacting other real estate agents to learn new tricks and was working closely with my loan officer to look for my best interest. Diane was dedicated to finding me the "right" home; there were times that we would walk through the house with me on FaceTime and she would tell me "I'm going to say no to this" as she did not want me to purchase a home that I wouldn't be happy with in the long run. Diane continued to keep my spirits up after every offer that was rejected (5 in total), 2 offers that we got really close to placing but pulled out for unforeseen reasons Diane continued to show professionalism and dedication even through a family emergency that emerged for her. She continued to respond to my emails, texts, and phone calls in a timely manner through this very hard time. I definitely recommend Diane to anyone who wants to purchase a home in this crazy market. She is professional with good communication skills yet with a good sense of humor and is dedicated to her clients and work.

Thank you Maryam.

We were so impressed with Diane's ability to quickly sell our friends house and help them buy their new home that we knew we needed to reach out to her when we were ready to purchase our first home. Being a Seattleite native she knows all the neighborhoods well and what each of them uniquely have to offer. She was very good and selecting homes that would meet the criteria list we gave her at start. She was in touch with us almost daily on updates on houses we were interested in or ones she thought might be coming onto the market soon. Diane is very well connected in the industry and this became apparent early on when she had a person for everything we might need to investigate. She was patient with us when we looked at a crazy fixer upper property multiple times, way out of the area we originally wanted to live in. She was kind and said it is all part of the process and you have to see the bad ones to know when you have a good one. And how right she was! After only 6 weeks of looking we found our dream house in Edmonds. It literally checked all the boxes and Diane helped us go after it fast! She had gotten all our ducks in a row so our offer looked the most competitive. We love her personality and professionalism and highly recommend you have her help you buy or sell your next home.

We were so impressed with Diane that we don't think we can go to another realtor again! Her experience and institutional knowledge were on display as she guided us along the various decision points in buying and selling simultaneously. She was truly invested in my family's future and never pressured us on anything; her only goal seemed to be getting us the right fit. She was in touch with us nearly every day on specifics, not just sending us listings. She also has a ton of experience with construction techniques/expenses, and not only did she use that knowledge in assessing all the houses we saw (pointing out flaws or good parts) but she also knew reliable contractors when we wanted work done after the sale. Finally, she was an extremely effective negotiator and clearly knows how to press hard or 'finesse' it based on who's on the other side. We were so happy we put our trust in her because we simply love our new house (and the price we got on our old house). There are so many little things she does, I can't imagine a better buying/selling experience than what Diane gave us.

Thank you so much. It was my privilege working with you. Your quick responses and attention to the detail you needed to do really worked well and enabled us successfully complete a sell buy move combo and all prior to baby number 2 coming into the world..

I'â¬â¢m especially appreciative of everything she helped out with from a project management perspective during our pre-sale renovations. She went above and beyond getting all the work done on our house with minimal effort on our end. Thanks Diane!
