"Diane recently represented our Family Trust in the sale of our Palos Verdes home that’s been in the family since 1967. From day one Diane was always prepared. She was intuitive and extremely intelligent. There were some unique challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic to which Diane responded with multiple suggestions and clear explanations of consequences for each suggestion. Diane was a phenomenal communicator and knew when to push on the accelerator and then pull back. Based on Diane's background and real estate experience in the Palos Verdes area, I felt very comfortable with her opinions. Lastly, I told Diane it was important that I pick an Agent I trust and that I feel has integrity. Since the sale of the house involves the Living Trust, I’m accountable to my siblings. I couldn’t have asked for more accountability and trustworthiness from Diane. It was such a pleasure working with Diane and the resources she brought to the table. It took the entire ReMax team in these challenging times to get our family home of 53 years sold. Diane will no doubt continue to be successful and we are so fortunate to have had her represent us!"

"We were extremely impressed with Diane Stone as our realtor in selling our RPV house recently. Her professionalism, knowledge, understanding of the local market, and hard work and dedication were second-to-none! Her network of top-notch contractors and other referrals couldn’t have made the experience run more smoothly or the payoff more rewarding. She was very diligent at keeping us informed of all the developments along the way. She pulled all the stops in advertising the sale – including newspaper, magazine, online, and direct mail flyers – and was very proficient at negotiating the final sale price. We wholeheartedly give Diane our highest recommendation!"

"I am absolutely thrilled with the service Diane provided in getting my mom’s home sold. The house is in southern California, whereas I live in northern California. She went well above and beyond while the house was being prepared for sale, from hiring and supervising contractors and gardeners to just generally keeping an eye on the place during the months when it was unoccupied. She saved me from having to make any trips down south to deal with matters there. Whenever I wanted advice, regarding the preparations, the listing, and the sales process, she was happy to provide it, but she was also totally willing to accept whatever decisions I reached. And then when things on the buyers’ side got a bit rocky during escrow, she took a very firm negotiating stance (whereas I would have given too much!) and kept things moving along. She is very organized, proficient, and responsive. This is the third time I’ve sold a home, and Diane worked harder than either of the other agents I’ve used. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results!"

"I highly recommend Diane Stone a real estate agent. She was professional, knowledgeable, and always responsive. She took time to get beautiful photos and drone footage, and did an incredible job with the marketing package. Diane worked tirelessly to get our property sold and truly worked every angle when it came to potential buyers. She went above and beyond the call of duty in so many ways. Our home was a fixer. Diane took care of all types of maintenance and repair issues while the home was on the market. She spent countless hours at the house supervising upkeep and related issues. She communicated with us frequently and always responded to questions/concerns immediately. Diane was straightforward with us about pricing strategy and steered us in the right direction regrading offers. She was able to get our home sold quickly in a down market. She was a pleasure to work in every respect!"

★★★★★
"I met Diane at an open house when my wife and I were looking for our first house in Torrance. She was very attentive as she wrote down all the things that we told her about what we wanted. She knew the area well and showed houses to us on Saturdays since it was more convenient to us on Saturdays. She stayed focused on finding houses that were within our price range and she was not pushy at all. After one short month, we found our home in a very desirable neighborhood. She was very meticulous about handling our paper work after she put in the offer for us. She was responsive in both answering e-mail and her phone. Two months after we met Diane, we were holding the key to our new house. We really like her personal service, her vast knowledge in real estate, her attention to details and her patience to us throughout the entire process. If I had money to buy another house, she would definitely be my agent."
