Diane is my "Realtor-for-Life"!  She has closed 7 transactions for me: she sniffed out properties for me to buy for the lowest prices and marketed the beautifully-crafted houses my partner, Heinz Brunner (general contractor/architectural designer) built & I landscaped.  I would write her emails in the middle of sleepless nights and I'd often have a response by 6am.  She is a dynamo, full of energy and committed to her profession, relentlessly pursuing leads and always putting her clients in the forefront of her busy life, juggling family, her own real estate holdings, friends and marathons.  She makes realtors look good!

Diane was a joy to work with. She helped me find an investment condominium in Silicon Valley and was helpful at every turn of the process. She was patient in showing me lots of properties that met my qualifications and helped show me the ropes for renting it out. She was unfailingly pleasant, consistent, and answered all my questions and concerns in a timely fashion. She made the process a pleasure. With her help, I was able to purchase a good quality condominium at an excellent price despite the very competitive market.

Buying a home in the infamous Silicon Valley is a daunting experience. Not only is it expensive but there are so many intricacies to the bidding process that are specific to the area. Working with Diane made us feel like we had a close family member in the real estate business; someone we could trust and someone we could rely on for advice and success! Looking at properties was a blast and something we looked forward to. (Diane is an excellent and safe driver). We got the property even though there were 8 other bidders! Even after the sale was over and we closed --we continued to lean on Diane for contractor recommendations. Diane is a superb realtor, a resource and an ally. If you're lucky enough to work with her, she'll be an excellent coach.

Diane is literally the best realtor you could ever ask for, providing above and beyond customer service and satisfaction. With her help, we were able to buy an amazing place that we never thought would be in our price range, and in an insane market to boot. She is so on top of things, and takes care of everything she possibly can in a timely manner so that your stress is minimized. She is a very sweet person and a pleasure to work with. I think she's a bay area native, and unlike most realtors, she has a huge geographical range she'll help you look in. This was why my boss referred her to me, and I'm eternally grateful she did b/c Diane is the best and I love our new place!
