Ratings & Reviews

Wow! I could not be more satisfied with services provided by Diane! From the initial viewing of our new home to the closing, she was a consummate professional. Throughout the entire process, Diane offered extremely valuable guidance and insight, and without her help, I cannot honestly say that we would have closed the deal. My wife and I had been looking for a home in this area for a little while when this one caught her eye. We contacted Diane to get more information, and her response time was incredible. Within minutes we received emails with information about the home and surrounding area. When we asked about seeing the home, she worked around our schedule and made the viewing very convenient for us. During our walkthrough, she provided us with the history of the home, pointing out it's highlights and potential flaws. This kind of detail and full disclosure is not something that I've typically received from other Realtors in the past, but it is something that I certainly respect. The process of buying the home was absolutely chaotic, but Diane led us through it to the very end. We purchased a foreclosure from Fannie Mae, and the hoops we had to jump through were insane. Diane worked tirelessly to keep us on track and moving forward at all times. She constantly offered her insight of the process and what to expect, which proved to be invaluable. There were several times that I was certain the deal was dead, but Diane was able to work through and overcome every obstacle that we faced. Total satisfaction! Overall, I cannot emphasize enough was a positive experience it was working with Diane. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home, and have no doubt that you will be satisfied with her knowledge, skills, diligence, and professionalism. I guess all I can say is THANK YOU!

Sold a home in 2013.

Diane worked diligently at getting my home sold in an area with very slow sales. As of this time, she has gotten me a written offer and a back up offer. She has done advertising in the local papers and has held open houses and even showed the home for Craigslist buyers.

Diane is a personable, knowledgeable and experienced agent. She has worked very hard on my behalf. Her communication skills are excellent and I knew where we stood each step of the way. She listens to me and strives to meet my needs. Diane is a great agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 in Galena, IL.

We would highly recommend Diane as she was wonderful to work with. She knows the area extremely well and does all the research for you to match your wish list. She is very pleasant and provides any advice or insight she can offer. She patiently spent time with us, never pushing us but allowing us to really look around. We found the perfect home for our situation and we know that down the road when it comes time to sell our home and buy our next home, Diane will be our first call.
