Diane is your agent if you are looking for a personalized experience, and a wealth of knowledge. She is directive without being pushy, and patient without being passive. She knows Orange County like the back of her hand. She went above and beyond, even scouting neighborhoods for us so we didn’t have to make unnecessary trips. She listened to us! And every trip out, she had something special for our toddler to snack on or play with. There is no way we would have found our dream home without her expertise. I would recommend her to anyone!
Finally, an agent who exceeded our expectations. Diane always kept us informed, answered all our many questions, and helped us meet our deadlines in order to avoid delays and extra expense. She definitely looked out for our best interest. Diane was always professional, and by far, the most responsible agent that we have ever worked with. Diane has guided us through the sale of our house and the purchase of a condo. She is our first choice for any future real estate needs. We feel very fortunate to have found an agent who we can trust with something so important - OUR HOME!
Dianne is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I was thoroughly impressed with her expertise and negotiating skills when it came to the multiple offer sale of our home. Being a seasoned veteran in the real estate business, she does her due diligence and is completely aware of the shenanigans some other agents try to pull and did not let us fall victim to any such things. She was able to get us top dollar for our home by being honest and looking out for her clients interest above her own. I couldn't be more satisfied or ask for more in a real estate agent. I highly recommended her to represent you as your agent.
Diane is an awesome realtor! She was able to sell our house for way more than we thought and was there throughout the process to walk us through everything. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor, we absolutely love her!
I can’t recommend her enough! I am no writer, so I feel that my words will not do Diane justice. She is beyond professional and is truly a genuine person. She is trustworthy, very diligent, and extremely responsive. I emailed/text her late in the night and her replies answered my questions in a precise and clear manner. She had a way of calming me during a process that can be so stressful! She is my realtor for life!
AS A NEW HOME BUYER, the process of buying a home is extremely stressful. I shopped around online, word of mouth, Craig's list, etc., to find someone to represent me. Everyone promised me the moon and the stars. I felt I was being courted like a superstar athlete ready to enter the draft. It became very apparent that what people wanted was my business, or I should say my money. The minute I met Diane I knew she was the one; and these are the reasons why. TRUSTWORTHY Diane is a people person; happy, patient, kind, and most of all, genuine. Her aura is very calming and warm. At first, I thought she was just trying to schmooze me like the rest of them. Having worked with her over the past year I have come to realize that this is just who she is. She has always showed the up-most respect to me and my family. In other words, I TRUST DIANE because she is TRUSTWORTHY. PROFESSIONAL There is nothing more annoying and stressful than when your agent/realtor is unresponsive. Let me be real. I have emailed and text Diane way past beyond the normal work hours. She immediately responds. This woman knows how to communicate; email, text, fax, cell, she possesses that meticulous nature that is imperative to the escrow process, again, diminishing my stress. As a principal, my time is precious. Whether early Saturday morning or late Monday night, Diane made time for me and modified her schedule to meet mine. That’s a TRUE PROFESSIONAL. EXPERIENCED & KNOWLEDGEABLE Sure I wanted a 3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom home in Burbank. The reality was I could not afford it. I can’t believe I dragged her out all those weekends having her search for my unrealistic expectations. I eventually bought a 4 Bedroom 3 Bathroom home in Santa Clarita. I am beyond happy!!! Diane patiently presented options to me and then guided me through the process with her professional opinion. From Burbank to North Hollywood to Sun Valley to Sylmar I was amazed at her intimate knowledge of the neighborhoods; neighborhoods that I grew up in. My point being, only someone with proven experience and intimate knowledge of the local area is capable of this. ADVOCATE Buying a home is a process where two sides negotiate, compromise and come to an agreement. As a former Law Student at Cal Berkeley, let me tell you; Diane has your back! Successful advocacy requires focus, courage and discipline. Diane exemplifies the necessary skill-set, and more importantly, the WISDOM that is needed in this business. Simply put, Diane is worth her weight in GOLD! And you can take that to the bank.
Diane is a one of a kind agent. My family has had the privilege of working with her on more than one transaction. Diane is a model example of what a agent should be. As a agent, Diane goes way beyond the call of duty for all of her client's and no task is to big or to small when it comes to making it happen. In addition to her remarkable people skills, she is trustworthy and has negotiating skills like no other. Diane puts her client's first not just sometimes, but the entire time and is 110 % committed to her role as an agent. Diane is a master at making challenging situations, into one of accomplishment. My family recommends her on every level and we look forward to working with her again in the future.
I highly recommend Diane for your real estate needs. We met at an open house, by fate, and have not looked back. I was casually in the market for a condo in the Laguna Hills/Mission Viejo area when I met Diane. There are two types of agents I have come across at open houses -- dismissive and hard sellers. She was neither. Diane is like a breath of fresh air. She was willing to answer questions and learn more about me, but never tried to push the property, or jump at getting contact information. She engaged with me in a genuine way, and was so friendly. I found her to be smart, informative, and transparent. I did end up making an offer on the property, and while I didn't get it (but hindsight shows Diane's advice to be spot on), I feel so fortunate for having met her that day. I continued to work with Diane and, with her help, eventually found and purchased a property. My lasting impression is how incredibly hard Diane worked for me. She is extremely responsive. She has a wealth of experience, but is both open to suggestions and diligent about thoroughly researching my questions (this includes tapping into her vast network of industry contacts.) She studies her craft to ensure she is up to date on market intelligence, and most important, she is SO MUCH FUN. Diane made the process of searching for and buying a property easy and fun (and fast!) I consider her an industry expert and trust her opinions and judgment. She has become a friend, and I would recommend her to any of my closest friends and acquaintances. I hope to work with Diane for the foreseeable future.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Diane! If there were 10 stars in this rating, I would award Diane all 10 stars! She is a consumate professional, honest, always with a positive attitude and helped rent my home in record time. She went more than the extra miles it takes to help get a home ready to show and assisted in more ways than I ever imagined. I highly recommend Diane for rentals and selling a home. In fact, when I am ready to sell my home, there is no one else I could imagine listing my house with. If experience, professionalism and having a positive experience for any Real Estate need is what you are looking for, call Diane Sprague.
