"My husband and I both loved working with Diana. She was truly a resource throughout the entire process of buying our second home. We were very impressed with how quickly she picked up on our style and preferences (when she sent properties over for us to review, she was able to instantly tell us whether they would be a hit or a miss). Diana was also very helpful throughout the negotiation process. She was able to perfectly advise us on what we needed to do to get the home we fell in love with. We would absolutely recommend Diana to anyone selling or buying in the Tahoe area."-Danielle and Michael Wiley, Mill Valley, CA

"Diana was an incredible Realtor® (this is an understatement). We have had several remote home purchases and sales, and have had our share of realtors® being unresponsive and overall just not being heard. Diana was exceptional on all accounts. We started our home search a year and half before we ended up purchasing. She was knowledgeable of the market and the different areas of Tahoe. She was honest, patient, and really knew what we were looking for before we did! She helped us be patient and wait for the perfect home. Once our offer was accepted, Diana stayed with us through the 90 day escrow, checking in daily. She facilitated all inspections, contractor bids, and made suggestion for things we should look into. She even had a timeline for us to look on and would help us with other partners in the process to make sure the home closed smoothly. After our home closed she has continued to be a valuable resource for any questions or help we may need. She went above and beyond! Diana is hands down the best realtor® we have ever had. We highly recommend her."-Meghan and Austin Payne, Orinda, CA

"Diana is a truly outstanding agent! Before we listed our Squaw condo, it needed some work. She found people to get repairs done and stage the property beautifully (and economically). Her local knowledge helped us price the condo well, leading to a very quick sale. Working with Diana was an absolute pleasure!"-Marc and Debbie Metcalf, Owners Uncorked, Tahoe City, CA

"Diana made the purchase of a second home in the Tahoe Area seamless. Her knowledge of the market coupled with her professionalism made a home purchase smooth and easy. She took the time to understand exactly what our family was looking for and quickly found us a picture perfect Tahoe Property within our price range. Thank you to Diana Graves….we will enjoy our West Shore dream home for generations to come!"-Kipp L. Blewett, Rubicon Partners, Sacramento, CA

"My wife and I recently purchased a vacation home located in the north shore area of Lake Tahoe. The acquisition was truly a wonderful experience and Diana Graves was the primary reason the experience was void of complications. Although we were familiar with Lake Tahoe, we knew little about the many complex and unique intricacies of purchasing a home in the area. Diana shepherded us through this maze and took charge of negotiating a reasonable purchase price, and arranging everything from home and property inspections, arranging for a qualified appraiser knowledgeable of Lake Tahoe properties, and insuring the loan approval process kept pace with the accelerated closing deadline requested by the seller.Over the years my wife and I have purchased and sold many homes and from our experience you can always count on having a hiccup or two along the way. We experienced no such problems with our Lake Tahoe purchase which I attribute to Diana’s knowledge, experience and attention to detail. Even today well after the purchase of our vacation home Diana has no qualms of making herself available to answer our questions and/or provide assistance. We are considering the prospect of purchasing another home in the Lake Tahoe area. We have not yet made that decision, but if we do so without question Diana will be the real estate professional we use."-Steve and Crystal Abba, Reno, NV

"Diana’s knowledge of the Lake Tahoe region and her ability to effectively find appropriate homes for our search was truly impressive. I watched in awe as she swiftly pivoted around one of the seller’s agents thus putting us in a perfect negotiating position. There were many times during our search where Diana provided answers to questions that I had thought about the prior day but had never asked. Having purchased several residential properties over the years, I've never met anyone as professional, dedicated, committed and determined as Diana to find us the perfect home."-Kirk and Melissa Mountain, San Francisco, CA
