As a first time buyer, there was a lot to learn. Luckily we were referred to work with Diane. She made sure everything was clear and gave us plenty of checklists to make sure we had all our bases covered at all times.
After learning about the buying process, came actually finding a home. The current market is flooded with homes, having Diane was great because she acted as a filter. She knew which areas to buy in, and if she didn't know the area or home well, she took the time to scout the area and house before we went out. She also had great instincts to see through all the hyped up homes to find us a real diamond in the rough.
Diane is an excellent negotiator. I would've hated to be the listing agent on the other end. Diane was always firm and knew all the tactics to getting us the best deal. We ended getting an awesome price on a home that we were quite fond of.
Going through escrow could be such a pain in the butt. Diane made sure everything was progressing at a good rate. If it wasn't, she would be down the throat of whoever was holding the closing process up.
There's just way too many good things to list that I could just go on and on. I'll just say this, if you want a thorough, tough, responsive, nice and all around awesome agent, call Diane. You won't regret it.
