Diane was referred to us by a realtor friend who knew we were looking for much more than just a salesperson or someone to schedule appointments. Diane did not disappoint. She has an in depth knowledge of the real estate market in the Kingston area; she understands, analyzes and can explain real estate data and trends to the layperson; she imparted great local insight (we were newbies to the area), and above all, she had patience as we viewed over 30 properties before making an offer. Diane was never pushy, she was honest and candid with us (especially when we got excited about a place but may have been overlooking important factors) and she had a great approach to making and negotiating an offer that ultimately got us a house we thought might not work out. I’ve worked with many realtors in multiple communities over the years – through my work and buying and selling my own properties – and Diane is one of if not the best I’ve ever worked with. She takes a genuine interest in her clients and continues to stay in touch with us 3 months after our purchase, offering advice, market information and more. My highest possible recommendation.
