Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Mercer Island, WA.

Diane is the agent selling my Mercer Island waterfront home. She is both professional and personable. She is a fantastic communicator and lets me know with weekly reports all information that might be pertinent to me. She is respectful and diplomatic with both my husband and I. That sure helps when we have differing opinions in this high stakes sale. Diane keeps track of the details and makes sure the house is at it's best and can be ready to be shown at the drop of a hat. I had my house with a very well known agent who has been in the business a long time. I am more than happy that I switched to Diane because of the attention, communication, intelligence and overall attention to which she shown us.

Sold a home in 2013.

We were very impressed with Diane's expertise and professionalism. Always immediately responded as required. It turned out the buyer had some initial problems with financing and Diane worked with the buyer and his agent to provide them with appropriate information so the buyer could quickly get financing from a different source. She had a very well thought out strategy in terms of pricing and how to position the house on the market, which contributed to its immediate sale once it was listed.

Bought a home in 2013.

Diane was an invaluable partner for our out-of-state move. She was supportive throughout the house hunting process: from meeting me at the airport on my first visit to helping us put a contractor box in place after our purchase and every step between, she made our home search a breeze!

At the time, I wished she would have given her opinion more, but in retrospect I am glad she didn't because that's not what your realtor should do. Buying a home is a very personal thing and your realtor is not your design consultant. It reflects a level of professionalism and experience that I rarely knew how she felt about a property. Nonetheless, when looking for resources to research questions and concerns, she was a wealth of information; whether it was finding the schools for a certain address, school ratings, landslide risks or oil tank insurance, she was able to suggest where to look.

Throughout our hectic negotiation she was supportive, but at the same time, didn't "fan the flames", and was able to remain a neutral party to allow us to sort through our own decision - further evidence of her maturity and expertise as an agent.

We consider ourselves lucky to have been paired with Diane through Zillow and would certainly recommend her to fellow users and friends alike!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Mercer Island, WA.

I appreciate Diane's long term approach to her client relationships. While we have not bought or sold a home with Diane yet, we likely will. She helped us explore a home purchase opportunity which ultimately wasn't a fit. Her market knowledge, relationships with other realtors, and quick turn of research and information helped us to evaluate the opportunity and reach a smart conclusion. Diane is business smart and street smart, the kind of real estate partner everyone needs!

Bought a home in 2006.

We were a first time home buyer and Diane Rae Jones expertise and friendly approach was what we needed. She recommended a free class for first time home buyer which gave us the technical tools on the processes of buying a home. Diane's professional and technical approach in a down to earth manner is why I would recommend her to my friends.

Bought a home in 2009.

As a 1st time homebuyer, Diane helped us become educated and comfortable with the homebuying process in a matter of weeks. She was our trusted advisor; and we feel we made the right choice, at the right time - with her help. She was very responsive and was there whenever we needed her.

Thank you so much! You were ideal partners in the process in your desire to learn about the market before making decisions and, once you felt comfortable, your ability to decide in a considered way. You made a great home choice that will serve you for a long time. It was a pleasure to work with you!

Sold a home in 2010.

I worked with Diane in selling my single family home on Mercer Island. Throughout the process she was highly professional and knowledgeable. She kept us well-informed about the market conditions and comps during a very challenging market condition and was really a great ally and resource when we were evaluating offers and negotiating. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fact-driven professional who will work hard to get the sale done.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $850K in Mercer Island, WA.

I met Diane when we purchased a home that she had listed. We were very impressed with how thorough and professional she was and we have done other real estate transactions using her since then. Diane brings the high standards from her many years in project management for top corporations and it shows. Diane is an expert in getting things done in this very challenging real estate environment.
