Clients are saying:
"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 is incredibly organized; preparing her client for all possibilities. She is well-informed of market facts and trends, and spends a lot of time understanding her client's specific needs and circumstances. She is pleasant and very trustworthy. I highly recommend her to support you through your home sale and/or purchase!"
"DiAne was fantastic to work with! My husband and I needed to find an apartment to rent but were unfamiliar with the city and lived in a different state. She did a wonderful job of listening to our needs, sharing information about the city and commute, being flexible when we changed our minds multiple times, and finding many good options when we came for a long day of showings. She went above and beyond to help us find what we wanted. DiAne even emailed us the day before Christmas about a beautiful apartment that would be listed soon! It ended up being perfect and we’re so happy to be living in it now. DiAne is the best!"
"DiAne is the best. She is knowledgeable, patient, detail oriented, and fun to work with. Our search parameters changed several times (we looked at SO MANY HOUSES) and she never got tired of looking with us. She helped us find the perfect house. She made the entire purchase process run smoothly, always making sure that everything was on track and nothing was falling through the cracks."
