"Diane was extremely helpful in my purchase of a pied-a-terre in Manhattan. Purchasing an apt can be a very nerve racking experience and I felt like Diane was very responsive to my concerns and questions. Having a buffer between the seller and buyer is always in everyone's best interests. Since realtors dont have the emotional investment in the property, they are better able to assess situations as an outside third party. Diane was able to navigate me through the good and not so good aspects of purchasing a coop apt in Manhattan. It's quite possible I would have given up on the process had it not been for her help.” –Rachel G.
"Outstanding in every way!!!!!!!! Diane goes the extra mile for her clients. Diane is very friendly, very easy going and understanding. My husband and I look forward to dealing with her again in the future!!!" –Suri F.
"Diane turned out to be a great asset in our search. She read me like a book and then, with uncanny finesse, tailored the listings she showed me. Her knowledge of Upper East Side neighborhoods was detailed and accurate. When I temporarily expanded the search to include listings in other parts of the city, she candidly referred me to other professionals rather than pretend she knew as much about those areas as brokers and agents specialized in them. All in all a charming and skillful real estate professional.” –Jed H.
