Diane Cardano was employed with Prudential Insurance Company for 8 years before she became a Real Estate Consultant. She worked in the Marketing department and studied for her MBA in Marketing. She wanted to take control of her destiny and decided to study for her real estate license.
Diane's father, James Cardano, strarted the first Cardano Family real estate office in Roslyn, Abington Township. He was a prominent Realtor and Broker in the Philadelphia, Montgomery and Bucks County areas and was a custom homebuilder.H e was ecstatic to hear that Diane wanted to follow in his footsteps. Her father always said that she could do anything she wanted. Diane left her "Corporate America" job to realize her goals and visions.
In May 1993, Diane Cardano became a licensed Realtor and started working for a traditional real estate company, Century 21. She was told to sell, sell, sell and was told nothing about service, service, service. Nothing was taught about the client's emotions during the real estate process and how to help clients reduce the stress. In Just 7 months, she was the Rookie of the year and wondered if there was another way of working in real estate without constantly chasing new business.
In November, 1994, Diane was recruited by a RE/MAX franchise in Blue Bell. While working there, she was introduced to Joe Stumpf, a Real Estate Consulting Coach from San Diego, CA. He was spreading the word to Realtors that there was another way of doing business….. "By Referral Only", versus chasing new customers every day.
She was told that if she builds long lasting relationships with her clients during the process of buying or selling a home, versus trying to make a commission check, she could build a business by referral. She also learned that if she offered her clients an "After Sale" service program, they would remember her great service and spread the word. Diane methodically developed systems to give all her clients the same great service and started building a business, 1 client at a time.
Now, Diane's clients are her Raving Fans, not just one-time customers. They not only receive great service during and after the sale, her clients have available to them "Fee Options" that can help them save thousands when selling a home.
In November, 1999, Diane bought her own RE/MAX franchise, RE/MAX Consultants. Then in October, 2009, Diane sold her Franchise and started Cardano, Realtors, to continue the Cardano family tradition of servicing the real estate needs of the community.
She has built a team of 12 associates, all of which have been referred to her or are past clients. They are ready to give great service to Diane's clients every minute of the day. No matter what day of the week it is, one of the team members is available to consult a client. The By Referral Only philosophy allows Diane and her team to successfully help people reach their goals. Diane and the team are "Real Estate Consultants. For Life".
During this process of building her business, Diane was married to her best friend, Stan Casacio. that explains the long Italian last name, Diane Cardano-Casacio. Stan and Diane have built their dream home in Whitemarsh and know what it takes to believe in your dreams and never settle for less. You will see that Diane brings that same positive attitude to her business, making sure her clients are WOWed throughout the process--while saving them time and money.
Diane has several client events throughout the year, a Golf Outing, a Client Appreciation Night and a special event just for her clients who are her "Raving Fan Advocates". Imagine that ….. a real estate consultant actually keeping in touch with clients after the sale, spending money they already earned!
