Clients are saying:
"I can't say enough good things about working with DiAne! We recently sold a condo and DiAne was a true partner every step of the way. We didn't live in the immediate area so DiAne was our point person on the ground for coordination with local contractors for minor repairs, checking that the work was done and following up on condo docs, etc. Knowing that we could rely on her to handle the details and was only a call or text away was a big relief. Overall, we just really enjoyed working with DiAne as she was genuine, friendly, and honest about everything along the way, and we felt we could trust her judgement. We'll miss working with her and would definitely reach out again if we ever need a realtor in the Chicago area."
"Working with DiAne was so incredibly easy and stress free. My wife and I had been planning our move to Chicago for a number of months, and DiAne has helped us along the way. She was very courteous and accommodating regarding timing for phone conversations. On the day we toured the city looking at properties, she came prepared with information, tips, and a great sense of humor to the whole process. What I originally worried would be a stressful process, was streamlined and simple throughout. DiAne works incredibly hard at what she does, and it was evident from day one to the last. Thank you again DiAne for your help, we will most certainly be returning for future real estate help!"
"DiAne was a pleasure to work with. Her guidance and recommendations for lenders and attorneys (which we utilized) made the process a breeze. I would highly recommend DiAne to prospective home buyers."
