I contacted Diane Realty just to get an idea of what my home was worth. She was very honest and understood my reasons and objectives for selling. After putting myself through the chaos of trying to sell on my own I decided to call Diane back and tell her my tale of woe.
On January 16th, right smack in the middle of our crazy winter, Diane came to my home and explained her strategy and marketing plan. I gained so much peace of mind knowing there was a clear plan.
Diane's marketing plan was flawless. My home received great exposure on all forms of media and qualified buyers were contacting Diane Realty right away! Diane scheduled all viewings and because of my busy schedule she showed the home for me.
That evening my first offer came in. Diane was so supportive and helped me through this process. Over that holiday weekend my home was extremely busy with potential qualified buyers looking and my home and making offers.
By Monday, which was a holiday, Diane was negiotiating between two qualified buyers and left the decision up to me. I chose the buyers who viewed my home first and offered my asking price! I believe in ethics and so does Diane, something very rare in her industry. We had a counter offer at $10,000 over asking price. At that point we made a decision to remain ethical and stay with the current offer. The engineer arrived at my home that Monday, which was a holiday, Diane was at my home to take care of the inspection while I was snow-tubing with my sons.
From the contract signing to the closing it was just a great experience being in the great care that Diane Realty offers. Selling your home can be a very stressful event if you chose the wrong agent. Diane took care of everything, answered all of my questions any time of day or night and sold my home to a great couple!
I highly recommend Diane Realty. I have never met someone as knowledgeable, caring, creative and dedicated like her. She made the sale of my home her top priority.
If you're ready to sell, call Diane Realty. But be ready to start packing!!!
Diane did a great job!! Diane is always available to assist in any way possible.
It was a pleasure working with Diane Birell to sell my mother's home.
Diane is professional, honest, hard working and has a kneen knowledge of the Staten Island real estate market. By showing me comparable listings, we arrived at the right selling price.
Diane kept in constant touch with me, advising me when the house was being shown and giving me feedback afterwards.
Diane successfully negotiated the price and closing date with the prospective buyers, keeping me in the loop.
It is a pleasure working with Diane Birrell to sell my house. She knows the neighborhood and priced my house to sell. During the time we were showing the house, she was very honest about people's reactions. Within the first week of showing we had 3 bids. I have already recommended her to a friend who is having trouble selling her house.
We had the pleasure of both selling our home and buying a new home with an outstanding professional, Diane Birrell. With the selling process, she helped us price our home accordingly to the market, provided outstanding advice about how to prepare the home for sale, and ultimately negotiated fiercely on our behalf to get us the best price for our home.
She never let our listing just sit there. She worked hard from the very first day with scheduling open houses, setting up signs, placing advertisements and constantly providing feedback to us on all the showings. In finalizing all the detail work involved in closing the deal, Diane was very helpful and was always on top of all closing requirements.
When we were ready to buy a new home, Diane listened carefully to what we wanted and showed us multiple homes that met our criteria. When we were ready to purchase, Diane illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation that made a normally nerve-wrecking process, a much calmer one.
When things would stall with our other service providers, such as mortgage lenders or even the sellers, Diane was quick to jump into action and was instrumental in helping to move things along for us.
Overall, Diane is very knowledgeable about aspects of realty that surpassed just the legalities of buying and selling properties. Her professionalism made the entire experience a truly pleasurable one. Diane is honest, a great listener, and always prompt at returning calls, answering questions and completing necessary tasks. We would recommend her to anyone we know and would be confident they would not be disappointed.
