Hi Diana,<br/><br/>"Thank You" is not enough for your excellence in real estate knowledge and courtesy that you have shown my Mom and myself in the presentation and selling of the property at 2730 Stonewood Drive, Bethlehem, PA 18017. <br/><br/>Following your advice regarding the removal of the carpeting and the wallpaper and applying a new coat of paint in the kitchen, dining room and living room proved to be well worth it.<br/><br/>I have gained great respect for you in the caring nature you have for the elderly when they have to sell a home that was very much an ingrained part of their lives. You have the ability to nurture the elderly in this very hard life changing experience, especially with my Mom who along with my Dad, built the home 47 years ago and did much of the finishing work in the house. It was truly their blood sweat and tears that made it their sanctuary.<br/><br/>As you know, the loss of my Dad in 2012 made it all the more difficult for my Mom to go through this process, so I was very happy to have your support.<br/><br/>Being the only child of my parents; members of the Greatest Generation; and the fact that my Dad fought for the freedom of our country in WWII; giving up 5 years of his life in the Army; 3 of which were spent fighting in Europe; created a strong passion in me that I hoped and prayed that the agent selling my parents home and the buyers would be worthy of what my parents built together. You were and are very understanding of what I was saying when I explained my thoughts and what I expected for my Mom and myself.<br/><br/>You came through with all my expectations of yourself; a very worthy individual, and God sent us Rodney and Peggy; whom I had an opportunity to chat with early on and knew they were very worthy of the house.<br/><br/>With all that said, it is my pleasure to know you, and call you a friend.<br/><br/>I will gladly recommend you to anyone that I meet who may be looking for a real estate agent.<br/><br/>I will also be recommending you to the elderly neighbors and friends of my Mom, knowing that she will be doing the same.<br/><br/>Again, an Infinity of thanks to you.<br/><br/>God Bless you, and best of luck in your life.<br/><br/>Highest Regards and Thanks, Gary & Helen Wright<br/><br/>P.S.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Bethlehem, PA.

Hi Diana,

"Thank You" is not enough for your excellence in real estate knowledge and courtesy that you have shown my Mom and myself in the presentation and selling of the property at 2730 Stonewood Drive, Bethlehem, PA 18017.

Following your advice regarding the removal of the carpeting and the wallpaper and applying a new coat of paint in the kitchen, dining room and living room proved to be well worth it.

I have gained great respect for you in the caring nature you have for the elderly when they have to sell a home that was very much an ingrained part of their lives. You have the ability to nurture the elderly in this very hard life changing experience, especially with my Mom who along with my Dad, built the home 47 years ago and did much of the finishing work in the house. It was truly their blood sweat and tears that made it their sanctuary.

As you know, the loss of my Dad in 2012 made it all the more difficult for my Mom to go through this process, so I was very happy to have your support.

Being the only child of my parents; members of the Greatest Generation; and the fact that my Dad fought for the freedom of our country in WWII; giving up 5 years of his life in the Army; 3 of which were spent fighting in Europe; created a strong passion in me that I hoped and prayed that the agent selling my parents home and the buyers would be worthy of what my parents built together. You were and are very understanding of what I was saying when I explained my thoughts and what I expected for my Mom and myself.

You came through with all my expectations of yourself; a very worthy individual, and God sent us Rodney and Peggy; whom I had an opportunity to chat with early on and knew they were very worthy of the house.

With all that said, it is my pleasure to know you, and call you a friend.

I will gladly recommend you to anyone that I meet who may be looking for a real estate agent.

I will also be recommending you to the elderly neighbors and friends of my Mom, knowing that she will be doing the same.

Again, an Infinity of thanks to you.

God Bless you, and best of luck in your life.

Highest Regards and Thanks, Gary & Helen Wright

P.S. Please drop off some business cards next time you stop in at Traditions.

Sold a home in 2013 in Allen Junction, Bethlehem Township, PA 18018.

Diana always comes through. The deal that she brokered for me was for a house in the RIGHT neighborhood, with the right layout and a great garage & driveway which is what I was aiming for over the last 40 months. I got all 5 of my 5 "must haves" in the house purchase. Diana has tenacity, and, always greets her client with a smile---even under the most stressful of moments. She is truly professional and knows her job. In addition, she refers the absolute BEST and most econoimal help. The movers were reasonable, the cleaning gal was quite reasonable and awesome, and, the tips after the move were very helpful. She was firm with the seller's agent and got me an additional $200 toward cleaning up the place.

I did recently recommend Diana to a friend who intends to hire Diana in the spring of this year. If I find others trying to sell or rent a house, I would always recommend Diana Hodgson of Keller-Willams. She is dedicated and pleasant and again, always has that welcoming smile. That smile and attitude and her ability to work with impossible clients like I make her a winner in my eyes. She's the best

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Bethlehem, PA.

We hired Diana because of her expertise and highly evolved people skills.

She told us what to do to prepare the house for sale. She helped us with the pricing and negotiations. The house sold in 3 days. Diana is the type of agent you want on your side.

She is knowledgeable, hardworking and conscientious. Diana will always have your best interests in mind.

Bought a home in 2012.

Diana is an amazing realtor! How amazing? She knew the areas so well that she didn't need a GPS or a map to navigate us around. She told us immediately which areas to avoid so we don't waste our time looking at something that will not sell well in the future. She also told us which areas are expanding well and which areas would be a good fit for our family with a toddler. She spent most of her Saturdays last summer with us house hunting and our toddler loved her so much he couldn't wait to see her every weekend. We've not only found a realtor, we found a friend that we can count on. She is the best around Bethlehem!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Catasauqua, PA.

Diana helped us prepare a twin house in Catasauqua Pa for sale. She came on board when we were trying to decide whether to sell"as is" or continue renovations. She encouraged us to continue working, made specific suggestions that made the house more attractive to buyers for example:adding a new counter top to the kitchen island that made the kitchen "eat in";suggesting limited staging of certain rooms and adding some outdoor planting. She encouraged us when our spirits faltered. We listened and followed her suggestions and finally listed the house in July just before we left for a trip outside of the country.Thanks to her good marketing and our hard year of work, the first prospective buyer made a serious offer and Diana skillfully via E-mail negotiated a tentative buyer's agreement. She also stayed in touch with other interested prospects just in case. There were,of course some hitches in the path to final settlement day. She helped us with all the details and then waited pleasantly with us for over 3 hours on that day in August while final financial details were ironed out. We are planning to renovate and sell another house and we are already using her expertise to decide how to spend the necessary money for maximum return. We recommend her without reservation.

Bought a home in 2010 in Allen Junction, Bethlehem Township, PA 18018.

Diana was very patient during our purchasing process. We looked at homes for two years. She delivered the same level of service from the first showing until the closing of the home. She continues to deliver outstanding service even though we are no longer looking for a home. She also assisted us with county tax reassessment and other post sale real estate support.

Sold a Single Family home in 2007 in Easton, PA.

Diana was lovely to work with. She is friendly and outgoing. She first showed us houses in the Bethlehem area and then agreed to go out outside her usual area to sell us the perfect house. Due to some personal issues, we had to sell that house months later and was able to sell it during a rough market without us having to take a hit. I would highly recommend her.
