Diana Cardwell
Acredited Buyer Representative (ABR)
Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE)

Specialty: Buyer's Specialist Specializing in Residential Property 

Being a lifelong resident of Monroe County, I am very familiar with the Poconos and surrounding areas. I have seen the Poconos go from a quiet, summer vacation spot to a bustling, all season designation. Lower home prices and lower taxes have made the Poconos a desirable area for people to live in fulltime or enjoy a vacation home. I specialize in representing my clients in the purchases and sales of residential properties.

I have achieved my Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) designation allowing me to represent my buyers with the most specialized and updated information. This designation also provides me with access to the Real Estate Buyer Agency Council (REBAC) website. This site has a link for current information for home buyers. I've also achieved my Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation giving me a thorough understanding of complex issues in today's real estate industry and knowledge of foreclosure avoidance options available to home owners. This certification also enables me to assist buyers who want to purchase a short sale or forclosed property. I keep up-to-date on the market trends and with continuing education in real estate courses.

I am an energetic, friendly, hard-working real estate professional who always puts my clients' interests first. I will guide you through every step of your real estate transaction. I have been a member of the West End Rotary Club (a service organization) since 1993 and have held the positions of President, President-Elect, Secretary and several Director's positions. Currently I am serving as the club's Secretary. I have been awarded the Paul Harris Fellow Award twice and have received the Rotarian of the Year and Service Above Self Awards. I am active with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Light the Night.

We are a full service team representing both buyers and sellers in residential, multi-family, lots/land, farm and commercial purchases and sales.

12/29/2014 - pallamalady
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Stroudsburg, PA.

Great ladies who know their business! Karen and Diana brought in many potential buyers to view our home. We had showings every weekend and sometimes multiple times in a single day. We had the property sold twice and both fell through. Their perseverance really paid off and third time was a charm. Both realtors are local experts and their communication skills were excellent. Diana was quick to get back to us on every question we had even though it was right in the midst of the Christmas holiday craziness.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Kunkletown, PA.

Karen Ecke is an excellent realtor. She was patient and helpful while showing us different properties. If she didn't know an answer to a question, she would get back to us with the answer promptly. Throughout the closing Karen walked us through the steps and made the closing extremely easy and quick. She has even helped us after the closing by providing us with information about local businesses in the area that could provide us with home services.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Kunkletown, PA.

Karen was a very experienced and professional real estate agent. Her knowledge and skill in marketing my father's house was exceptional to say the least. She priced the house just right for the going market, had comps for me to review to obtain a comfort level that the asking price was in line for the house to sell within a reasonable time frame. As an out of state client she put me in touch with the right professionals to make repairs to the house and was readily available by phone and email. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate agent whether buying or selling a home. She is a First Class Real Estate Agent!  More Less
