Testimonials

Diane is an exceptional realtor who is highly effective and service-oriented. Through her expert guidance, we were able to purchase our dream house in the midst of a competitive bidding situation, and sell our previous home for more than 20% over the asking price.

When we began the search for our new home, Diane invested the time required to get to know us and understand our needs and desires. Throughout the search, she was willing to do whatever it took to find the property that met our criteria. Finally, when we found the home that was perfect in every way, she knew how to combine the right financial offer with a personal appeal that was accepted in a multiple bidding situation.  Importantly, we believe that the reputation Diane had with the sellers’ agent and her high ethical standards were key components that contributed to our offer coming out on top. The deal closed in 21 days thanks to her diligence, organization and hard work. We could not have been more pleased.

Then, it was time to sell our previous home. Through her experience and savvy, Diane helped us price, prepare, stage, and market our home. The result of her effort was a tremendous level of traffic and excitement over a period of less than two weeks. At the end of the process, we had several strong offers, with the top offer at 22% over asking price. We were thrilled.

We recommend Diane to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, without hesitation. Any client working with her is certain to have a positive experience with an excellent result that meets their needs in every way. We feel very fortunate to have worked with her.

Absolutely nothing could have been done to make this better. Diane was exceptional, informative, fun, and above all a true buyers representative. She guided us through the process with her expertise and always kept us well informed of the progress and next steps required. She is someone that we will highly recommend to anyone!

Diane made everything so easy! When we had to sell our condo because of a cross-country move, Diane took a huge load off our shoulders by finding stagers, coordinating them with painters, and bringing our condo on the market in such a beautiful condition (and at just the right price) that we had an abundance of offers, and sold over our initial asking price. 

We watched and marveled from 3,000 miles away as our condo was transformed, and Diane kept us abreast at key junctures through e-mail and phone calls. I kept forgetting that we were selling because it required so little work on our part. Diane is a consummate professional and a delightful person, and we're grateful for her skill and reliability. If you are looking for a realtor who is easy to work with, values her personal relationship with her clients, and proceeds in all decisions with prudence and integrity, Diane is the right agent for you.

My entire experience was so stress-free, all because of Diane.  Everything was handled so promptly, efficiently, professionally and accurately that I felt I had very little to do besides sign the papers.  She kept me fully informed and was attentive and accessible, which added to my feelings of trust in her work.  I have nothing but praise for Diane and cannot express my gratitude for all she's done for me and the way in which she's done it.  Thanks to her, my purchase felt easy and seamless and I therefore had the opportunity to ensure that I was making the right decision.

More than any realtor we had worked with previously, Diane provided us with the highest quality personal service in both the purchase and sale of our property.  Our interaction with Diane didn't stop at the transactions' closings. Because we trust Diane to deliver this same service to others, we have recommended her to many friends.

Diane Hourany was the consummate professional from start to finish. Many sellers make the mistake of viewing the real estate professional primarily as a salesperson. Of course that's one aspect of the entire project. Diane started by assessing my expectations and came equipped to describe the quirks of the San Francisco real estate micro economy. Together we arrived at a goal and when it came time for the offers we did extraordinarily well. What made this experience a pleasure was Diane's "spot-on" handling of all details. This marketing campaign took place while I was mostly out of the Bay Area and at times even out of the US. She expertly applied every Internet trick to keep in contact. And when the offers came in, we exchanged Acrobat files. It was smooth as silk. The bonus is that she's pleasant and flexible. I would gladly work with Diane again!

Diane was a joy to work with! She was very personable and really took the time to figure out what was important to us as first time home buyers. At the same time, she was extremely professional and tough on the external parties when she needed to be. Because she is so well connected, we were able to be the first people to view the unit in a building we had admired for some time. She also adds a personal touch to the extensive process that put us at ease even as we moved into our new home. Thanks Diane!

Real estate transactions are by nature extremely stressful, either by the buyer's side or the seller's side. I felt that working with Diane helped me get through the stresses that one always expriences during these types of transactions...working with Diane was extremely calming. She is  very professional. Certainly she builds a great deal of trust in her good judgment among the clients that she represents. I have been involved in three real estate transactions with her and I felt a growing sense of trust in the way that she handles negotiations on the buyer's and seller's side...

Diane came to me upon the recommendation of two friends who worked with her and liked her style and results.  Diane sold my condo in the same manner and went the “extra mile” for me.  I lived 3000 miles away from the condo and it was tenant occupied – Diane worked through all of these obstacles and many more with knowledge, humor and results.  Her knowledge of the “business” and communication skills helped to sell my condo quickly and at my asking price.  I’d definitely work with her again.

As a first time home buyer, Diane has been a pleasure to work with from day one.  She takes the time to discover your interests and is constantly going the extra mile to help you in any way she can.  Diane is very thorough and professional and utilizes her profound experience to put your priorities first at all times.  When it comes time to close the deal, Diane takes the extra time to put together a formal presentation to help your bid stand out.  The fact that Diane is very patient, easygoing and wonderful to work with has made my home buying experience much less stressful.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Diane to my friends or relatives.
