As first time home-buyers, Dianne gave us the confidence to move through the process, and we wound up with more than we could have hoped for. We reached out to Dianne with a lot of hesitation and fear about looking for a buying a home. During our first meeting most of these fears were gone. Dianne gained our confidence through a combination of asserting her expertise and being honest with us. We never felt that she was trying to make a sale, and alwasy knew we were getting solid advice. She was so attentive that we honestly felt like her only client, even though we knew this was not the case. We were able to find a buy a home in a very competitive market.ndavis12302
Dianne has proven her expertise through the knowledge and actions she has shown us through this process. Always responsive to our questions and needs as a buyer and seller. Dianne's personality is such that she is adaptable to any situation and knows how to respond to all. She is very helpful with recommendations and suggestions with those items a seller or buyer just does not think of. To us Dianne has become more than just our realtor.rjgrande88
Dianne said she'd work to get me top dollar on my house and that's exactly what she did! She's approachable and direct, and her creative marketing skills and attention to detail really set her apart. Call Dianne- she'll get you moving!loomismarcy
Dianne worked with us when we were looking to buy a home in Sharon. She is a true professional and knows the area extremely well. She was very pleasant and easy to work with, and prompt in responding to all our questions and requests. We appreciated that she never pushed us in our decision making and offered valuable feedback on the homes we saw with her. We wish her well and highly recommend her for buying or selling a home in Sharon!N Basil
Three offers a few days after our first and only open house! We sold our house in Sharon with Dianne as our listing agent. We interviewed several agents and while all of them were highly competent, Dianne felt like the one. Being from the West Coast we had never sold a home in MA before. Dianne was amazing and held our best interests at heart. She assisted us in staging our home to sell quickly and masterfully negotiated on our behalf throughout the process with the buyers agent. We had three offers on the table to review after a highly successful open house (we only had to host one open house) before we accepted one of the offers. I have recommended Dianne to several other potential sellers in Sharon based on our experience.chergregg
As inexperienced buyers shopping for our first house, we were looking for a realtor that had experience and knowledge of the industry. Dianne did not disappoint! She held our hands through the whole process and made sure that all our wants and needs were met. We couldn't be happier with our house and we will definitely enlist Dianne's help when we choose to sell. Thank you, Dianne!caitlin rung
We honestly hadn't been looking seriously for a new home in our same area, but we were always "browsing" new listings in our community.
One Sunday, we came across a perfect fit for our family and decided we wanted to try and purchase this home. We knew time was of importance, because it was such a beautiful home, and the open house was so busy. We turned to Dianne to provide her expertise and guidance. She quickly took care of everything, and gave us reassurance that the pricing was correct for the area. Dianne is a Full Time agent which is VERY important in this competitive market. She was someone who could work quickly, and have the paperwork done in a day. She made the process very easy.
While buying our new home was straight forward the flip side was a bit different. We were guided by Dianne on how to get our home ready for sale. We were very lucky we encountered MANY interested buyers. Many of the families were 1st time buyers and each of them had unique situations. Dianne worked very hard, to reassure them and even reassuring real-estate agents that were also NEW to the process. Her mentoring qualities were tested, new agents can defiantly learn from her expertise. This is why she is such a successful agent. Not only does he know her craft, her market and areas, she is also willing to educate, and support the lesser experienced professionals along the way. Her experience sets her apart from all other agents. Dianne is hard working and will not disappoint.sidcolby
Dianne Needle both sold my existing home and helped me find in the same neighborhood the new, larger one my family needed. Out of this business transaction at which she excels grew a friendship that will last long after our new house has become home. That was the unanticipated bonus of working with Dianne.
My family needed a larger home but we had very specific requirements if we were to move. The new home had to be in certain portions of only 4 ZIP codes in our town. We had size, style, feature and access requirements. And, of course, in order to buy the new house, we needed to sell our existing one.
In a white-hot real estate market, the marriage between the sale and purchase of the old and new houses is a tricky one. Sell the current house before finding the new one and you can end up in crowded temporary housing that suits no one’s needs. Try to buy the new house before selling the current one and you can end up losing significant deposit money if the proceeds from the sale of one house are needed to purchase the other (as was our case). These dynamics add up to one thing: Stress! Enter Dianne Needle, Stress Buster!
We looked for over a year for a new house that fit our unique requirements. As we did so, we leisurely prepared (or so we thought) our existing house to be ready to list. And then we suddenly found it – THE house. One day we were casual lookers and the next, we were offering to buy a house that had been on the market for a day and that we knew would receive multiple offers. Dianne’s guidance in stripping the gauzy filter of new house love from our eyes was invaluable and she made absolutely certain that the house both met the needs we told her we had and was a house ready for and worthy of purchase. Looking back, I can clearly see how well prepared Dianne was to be the clear voice of reason had that been required. We were lucky – the house was as amazing as we perceived it to be and we were quickly in realtor-client agreement about its suitability for our needs.
Excitement quickly gave way to emotion – we were selling my home of 20 years and our home of 5. Preparing to say goodbye to our home included the process of preparing it to show and sell – quickly! Our thoughts? “It looks great! Who wouldn’t want to buy this home?” Dianne superbly navigated the tricky and often turbulent waters of helping us see our house not as our home, but through the eyes of potential buyers. In only a few days, she firmly but respectfully guided us through the purging of items and furniture of detraction and helped us stage our house until it looked so amazing that we wanted to buy it ourselves! Dianne listened with care to every concern we had, every issue we expressed and even the waves of uncertainty and frustration that came over us in the process of turning our home into a show house. Her patience was admirable and her advice was flawless. Every detail – a picture moved to another room, a mirror added to a wall, a change in a bedspread – EVERY suggestion Dianne made mattered and served an integral part of creating the cohesive whole that resulted in our house selling, at the price we wanted, within 10 days. Thanks to Dianne’s hard work and expertise, we received multiple offers. She kept us calm and focused when the first one came in quickly but low (remember – we’d already written an offer on the new house!) and helped us to determine which was the best offer for our situation when others were made several days later. Left to our own devices and concerned about not losing the new house on which we’d made the offer, we might have accepted that first offer and cost ourselves over 5% of the ultimate sales price.
When the offer and the Purchase and Sale were complete, Dianne’s effort and results didn’t stop. She coordinated all the aspects of the engagement among the buyers, sellers, realtors and closing attorneys of/for both homes. Much of her effort was well beyond the contractual requirements of a Realtor. She took the pressure off of us, managed nagging and (to be honest) annoying details, keeping us focused on the deadlines and requirements we needed to meet in order to execute both home sales.
In theory, any realtor can help you find a new house and sell your existing one for you In practice? Any realtor who isn’t Dianne has no shot at doing so for us should we ever need to buy or sell a home again. Perhaps the only professional shortcoming Dianne has is her inability to earn repeat business from us. Our new house is so perfect and so quickly became our home that we aren’t going anywhere else! We are staying here for a long, long time!sawojnar
Friends of ours who had recently moved to Sharon recommended we contact Dianne, and we are extremely happy that we did. In our very first introductory conversation, Dianne provided deep insight into the local market - it was clear to us that she would be very experienced and knowledgeable in this area. And, just a few days later, she went above-and-beyond by finding out many details for us about the house we were particularly interested in (for example ownership and permitting history, etc). She helped us to be decisive in our offer, and fought for us during what turned out to be a longer-than-expected post-inspection negotiation. She was always very responsive, even while she was abroad with her family during winter break. Above all, Dianne was always warm and approachable, and her experienced demeanor helped put us at ease during times of uncertainly throughout the process.joshuabellin
Dianne was a pleasure to work with and had our best interest at all times. We decided to put our house on the market in August and have our first open house in September. She stayed on top of us and gave us honest and practical advice as we were getting the house ready to be put on the market. She knew the market inside and out and is very knowledgeable of the sales process from negotiation to closing. When the closing was delayed because of issues on the buyer side, she stayed on top of it and helped push for a closing as soon as possible. Our confidence in Dianne never wavered in what was at times a stressful process.tomyuen82
Diane went above and beyond to help our family find our new home. We had a limited amount of time to house hunt, as we were moving from out of state with start dates for new jobs. Diane maximized our time and guided us through the entire process. Diane is exceptionally professional in every aspect yet very personable in that we felt like we were hanging out with an old friend when we were house hunting. Diane is an invaluable source of knowledge and went beyond our expectations! My husband and I would recommend Diane without hesitation!jon pratt
My situation was very different from most folks. I am a Soldier in the Army and needed to buy a house quickly, prior to deploying overseas. Diane found the "perfect" house for me and my family. Then a few days after the open house I was shipped overseas. My entire transaction was completed while I was overseas. Its a tough enough process when you're able to call, fax or even drive by to resolve issues. But add 5,000 miles and 6 or 8 time zones, and simple matters become increasingly difficult. Diane has been there from my very first visit, right on thru the closing. I can honestly say "Thank you Diane we couldn't have done this without you". Only you know how much this impacted me and my family and you didn't let me down. Yes I would highly recommend Dianne Needle ! MSG M. Medeiros US Armymamedeiros822
Dianne was amazing to work with. Her energy and passion are second to none. She put my home on the market and within 2 days I had 5 offers all over asking price. Due to her expertise, we were able to select the buyer that made the most sense. I would highly recommend Dianne to anyone buying or selling a home. The whole process was smooth and seamless.zuser20151019182129998
Dianne was amazing to work with. She brings an incredible energy and passion to the table. Her enthusiasm for a listing is contagious. We listed our home with Dianne because of that enthusiasm and passion as well as her strong knowledge of the market.
Dianne got our house under agreement in less than 24 hours and advised us every step of the way. From preparing the house to go to market, through accepting an offer, executing the Purchase & Sale to close, Dianne had our best interests in mind, successfully negotiated our wants and was an absolute professional.
Dianne was fun to work with and made selling our home an easy and positive experience. No question we would work with Dianne in the future should the need arise and would highly recommend her services to anyone whether they are buying or selling Real Estate.

Jill, Thank you for this review. I know everyone knows lots of Realtors so when you gave me the opportunity to meet with you and present to you why you should CHOOSE ME to help you sell your home, I was beyond thrilled. And then we you did CHOOSE ME, I could not wait to get going! You were wonderful to work with and I am so happy the transaction was smooth and you were happy with my services and you are now settled in your new home. Enjoy your summer! XO DIANNEzuser20160426140455985
Dianne's great. Her pool of contacts was incredible and made our entire process smooth and (relatively) easy. She knew *everybody* it seemed, and also knew the way to play the game. We knew the house we wanted, she talked us through getting it, and provided sound advice on numbers and timing. I'd recommend her to represent anybody I know without hesitation.
Response from Dianne Needle on 07/15/2016
Steve, THANK YOU for this review. You guys found SUCH a great house!! I knew it was under-priced and we needed to come in over asking to make this happen. And we did!! I could not be happier for you guys!!! Regarding knowing "everybody", I never take for granted the great team that I have put together over the years who help me give my clients truly concierge-level service. From my go-to real estate attorneys, mortgage brokers, home inspectors, and when needed, roofers or mold remediation folks, they are all tried and true professionals who allow ME to serve clients like you at the highest level. I wish you many happy years in your new home! Thank you again for the opportunity to help you. All my best, DIANNEsahannum
I have so many good things to say about Dianne! She was able to help my husband and I find our dream home from beginning to end. It seemed a little stressful going to one open house to the next and not finding the right home, but Dianne put us at ease that we would eventually find our dream home. We trusted her and continued the search. We were kind of in a rush to find a home because we were getting married soon and needed somewhere to live shortly after. After only a couple months of searching we were able to find a home that we loved in a great location. There were many offers given for the house we wanted, but somehow, someway Dianne was able to get us to win the bid even though we were not the ones with the highest offer. Not sure how she did it exactly, but she was able to work her magic for us. We couldn't be more thrilled with the way she handled everything. She's truly a great realtor and has a lot of knowledge about the market place and everything that it entails. Dianne was a blessing in desguise for us. She was able to get us our dream home at the perfect time! We are so happy with our new home and with everything that Dianne did for us. We will be forever be greatful of her. Thank you so much Dianne!

Rebeca, OMG your review made me cry....There is nothing more rewarding to me than helping someone find their FIRST home! And when that "someone" is special to me and my family, it means even more. I'm so happy you are happy....we did find you the perfect house. Thank you for listening to my advice and trusting me. So...a wedding, a new home, hmmmm what's next?!!!! Congratulations to you and Henry on all these "firsts" and may you make many wonderful memories in your lovely new home. XO DIANNErebecamaciel88
Dianne was WONDERFUL to work with, and we highly recommend her! She has a fantastic understanding of the local real estate market and her expertise was critical in helping us to price, stage and show our home. I don't think we would have had as wonderful a success and experience without her.
Response from Dianne Needle on 07/15/2016
Mark, Thank you for this review and thank you for giving me the opportunity to help you and your lovely family make this happen! The pride of ownership showed in the home we sold and we were able to get top dollar for your home! I wish you much happiness in your new community and fabulous new home!! Have a great summer xo DIANNEmoglia17
We recently had an experience working with Dianne s. Needle and we were so fortunate to have her as our realtor. She helped us to find a right house in the right neighborhood at the right price.
She has very good knowledge of the neighborhoods and does right market analysis. She always gave honest opinion and good advises and we never felt that she was pushy.
Throughout the journey of the 'house hunt', Dianne has been there at every step. She is very responsive and answered every call, email or text messages no matter what time of day or night it was.
She goes out of her way to help her clients.... for instance, the house that we bought was the sale by owner. It was so hard to reach the owner through phone/emails. But our realtor, Dianne Needle, tried all the ways to reach the owners and even left a note in the owner's mailbox. Eventually we heard from the sellers!
She knows how to make the offer competitive and that's something so important in the home buying process. She suggested that we write a letter to the sellers to explain why they should choose us. This approach really worked!
Once our offer got accepted, she took care of every single detail with sellers to complete all paperwork, inspection and any requests to the sellers.
We are loving our new house and wonderful neighborhood. We highly recommend Dianne Needle to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Response from Dianne Needle on 06/14/2016
Samrin, Thank you SO much! When we discovered this home that was For Sale By Owner, I knew it was just perfect for you and your family! As I told you when we met, the house you end up with is the house you are meant to be in! This could not ring more true. The house is gorgeous and it was worth the wait! I'm only sad that my relationship with you as your Buyer Agent has concluded and I won't see you as much!! Reach out any time! XO DIANNEsamrinali06
Dianne helped our son and his family to find and purchase their first home in Sharon MA. She was professional, supportive, informative and helpful throughout their first venture into real estate, from property search thru the closing process. We ourselves have dealt with many real estate agents in several states when buying and selling our homes thru the years, and Dianne is the best we've seen. No hesitation in giving her top ratings!
Response from Dianne Needle on 06/14/2016
Thank you so much, David! It was such a pleasure helping out your son and his lovely family. I enjoy nothing more than helping first time home buyers understand and navigate the home buying process and making sure their first experience is memorable in a good way!! They found a GREAT HOME!! Thank you again for this kind review! Best, Diannezuser20140811191536054
I had an absolutely horrific experience with this real estate agent. She was unscrupulous and unethical in her dealings with me. She tried to convince me my current lender (Ditech Financial) was not only unfavored on the South Shore of Massachusetts but that they were going out of business. She tried to tell me I would have better dealings with the Sellers of this interested property if I would go with Brian Brown of Guaranteed Rate for financing. At that point I was completely soured on the property. I made it very clear that neither she nor the Sellers of the property would dictate what lender I chosed to go with. I left the negotiations at that point to seek proper representation; someone who would look out for my best interest. I will not enter any future dealings if Dianne Needle is involved.srbrown825
Dianne was attentive, professional, and timely. She understood what we were looking for, and did not pressure us to go over our stated budget. She helped us find our home, and due to her professionalism, I immediately suggested her to my friend who was also looking for a new house.
I generally hedge my bets with reviews, because there could always be someone better in some way, but that isn't the case for Dianne. She went above and beyond for my wife and I, and we will forever be thankful.pmularski
Dianne Needle is a professional dedicated to helping her clients find a home. She listens, and pays close attention to details, and always, always goes the extra mile. She is as generous as she is giving. I am so grateful to Dianne for her help in finding my children a safe home to live.zuser20151223120551368
Dianne came into my life at a time when I was in need of not just an excellent Realtor, but a friend. With her expert negotiating skills and knowledge of the market, Dianne was able to guide me through the sale of my home and the purchase of a new one. I feel very fortunate to have found Dianne! I am truly thrilled with my new home and happy with both the process and the end result.ladyliberty133
My husband and I were looking for a home for us and our one-year old in Sharon. The second house that Dianne took us to was the one that we ended up buying. To say that the sellers were challenging is an understatement; they were flippers that only did enough to be legally covered but were, in our collective opinion, professionally irresponsible. Dianne helped us negotiate the price down and was our advocate through the entire process. She also had the connections to an effective attorney, inspectors, etc. and is (still) a great resource for us when we need a specific work done (masonry, roof, etc). Dianne really knows Sharon and was genuinely concerned for our interests.
Response from Dianne Needle on 04/21/2016
Dear Sarah, Thank you so much for writing and posting this review. As I know from experience and unfortunately, as you had to learn, cooperative and reasonable sellers are not a given. However, I was very glad that I was there, along with my amazing team (attorney, contractors, etc), to help you navigate this situation and get you into your dream home! Welcome to Sharon! All my best, Diannesarahliammiller
I was a first time seller and very nervous.Dianne took care of every thing for me .she found all the contractors and meet with them while I was working.which was Hugh help.everyone she hired did great job and at the price I was quoted.if I had any questions or concerns she always got right back to me with the answers I needed . I honestly believe I could not have gotten through this without her. The home sold quickly and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home.she will take good care of you!!!

Bob, Thank you so much for posting this review! While you have expressed to me many times how happy you are, I want to let you know that I am ecstatic as well! I was happy to help you secure contractors and hold your hand through the process. (I agree my contractors are the BEST!) While I'd like you to think you were special, I do give this special attention and care to ALL my clients! (but you are special!) THANKS AGAIN FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP YOU THROUGH THIS...Your friend and Realtor, Diannebaltman44

Andrew, Thank you for this lovely review. It is always challenging to downsize after living for many years in the same home. It was my pleasure and privilege to help you in this process and I am so happy I was there for you. Happy New Year! All my best, Dianneandrew calo
Dianne has helped us through the whole process of finding our next great home. She was patient, accomodating to our schedule, showed us a lot of properties that we were interested in seeing and negotiated well on our behalf. We will definitely use Dianne in the future again. We highly recommend her for all your selling/buying needs.
Response from Dianne Needle on 01/08/2016
Dear L and N, Thank you so much for this review. It was a pleasure working with you and I will look forward to working with you again! One of the most rewarding parts of my job (which makes it not feel like a job!) is meeting great people like you and being able to call you "friends" after the business is over! I'm always here for you! Happy New Year! All my best, Diannezuser20140722053551672
We chose to work with Dianne to buy our first house based on a friend's recommendation and we are so glad we did. From the start, Dianne was tuned to our needs and expectations and helped us through the buying process in every step. We wouldn't have got our house without Dianne. Her knowledge of Sharon and the market is impressive. She is a veteran in her field and acted as our one point of contact for everything home-buying related and we have gained a friend whom we still ask for help as first time home owners. We highly recommend her to other home-buyers in need of a friend and guide.
Response from Dianne Needle on 10/28/2015
R and S, thank you SO much for your kind words. While I do love all things real estate, my favorite is helping first time home buyers and guiding them throughout the process. I still hear from my buyers with questions years later and I am happy to help, whether they ask for a recommendation for an electrician or plumber, or simply have a question about the local community. Welcome to Sharon and you definitely do have a friend in me! Congratulations!! Diannesupaandi
Dianne is a dedicated real estate professional. Her work ethic is admirable and her knowledge of the local market is excellent. She greatly assisted us with sale of our home and we could not have asked for better service. She is personable and has a positive attitude. She kept us informed and went the extra mile to make the home selling process run smoothly. We highly recommend her. P&J - Sharon, MA

Thank you so much, P&J! It was my pleasure! Thank you for the opportunity to represent you and congratulations! Dianneuser558590
Dianne is exactly the type of real estate agent we were looking for. She is extremely knowledgeable and truly knows the real estate market in our town. She gave us great advice throughout the entire process of both buying our house and selling our house. She was always well prepared and accessible. You can tell she loves her job, cares about her clients and she is GOOD at it! We would recommend Dianne for anyone looking to buy and/or sell their home.rfishman
Dianne is a true professional! She helped us purchase a home and sell a home. Through her hard work, dedication to her client and immense knowledge of the real estate market in our town, she helped us get a great price on the home we purchased and a desired price on the home we were selling. She dots all her "i's" and crosses all her "t's". You can tell she loves her job and she is GOOD at it! We would recommend Dianne in a heartbeat!

Lisa, Thank you for this review! I do love my job and I love clients like you!! You were great to work with and I could not have been happier putting both great deals together for you. Much happiness to you and your family in your BEAUTIFUL new home!! And thank you for the opportunity! Best, Diannerl9599
Dianne is the best. My husband and I had to sell and buy a house- it had to go smoothly because we have three kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats so we didn't want to end up with nowhere to go. Dianne helped with everything from finding workmen to fix up our house to decluttering to staging. The house looked amazing and sold in three days flat. Then on the buy side Dianne had endless patience for showing us a LOT of homes until we picked our dream house. It was a difficult buy for complicated reasons on the other side. Dianne handled so many sensitive situations and people with ease. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
Response from Dianne Needle on 06/09/2015
Valerie, It's been so great working with you. From helping you get your house ready to list to searching for and finding your dream home, I have enjoyed it all! The business of selling and buying a new home is rarely without challenges. It just takes patience and attention to detail to make sure all the pieces fit. In this case, great fit and great outcomes all around. I am so HAPPY for you and your family!! Thank you again for the opportunity! Best, DianneValerieFrank9
Dianne is wonderful to work with. She is always on time and willing to help with whatever you need.. Even met me to show the condo to my parents. As a first time buyer I was often confused but she helped me to understand all the steps in the process. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home!! :)

Thank you so much, Michele! I really enjoyed working with you and I love educating first time home buyers! I wish you much happiness in your new condo! Congratulations!shellme101087
I personally enjoyed working with Dianne, since the first moment she was really friendly and understood our needs and helped us making a good deal!
She was always on the top of everything and prepared about our property and the whole process.
I loved that she was really honest, entusiastic, and that gave us good advices when we needed the most.
She made our first time buyer experience so smooth and easy to deal that I would recommend her with my eyes closed!!!marilonga35
Dianne helped us navigate through the complex home sale + new home purchase this fall. From day one, she was highly prepared and informed about our property and comparable properties. Her knowledge and breadth of experience in the process is evident, I never realized before that there is an art to realty! She takes the time to really get to know her buyers' needs and wants, and, if you're selling a home, who the 'right' buyer is for you. She will work day and night for you, and to top it off, she's an honest, realistic, genuine person who truly loves doing what she does for people. I can't say enough good things about her. Choose Dianne.

Thank you so much, Sarah, for this review! It was truly a pleasure helping you through this process. I was very pleased that I was able to find you a great house within your budget, and sold your house quickly (as I predicted!) at the first Open House! I wish you much happiness in Newton, MA!!sarah strattman
Through a fortunate series of events is as been our great pleasure to have had Dianne Needle personally involved in the sale and purchase of homes and condominiums for each member of our immediate family. Starting with our son and the purchase of his first home it was clear to us that we wanted no one other than Dianne involved in any of our real estate transactions. The personal attention she pays to the desires and needs of the person she is helping is so much more than anyone should expect. While deeply involved in the sale of our own home Dianne took time to realize a need that our daughter had for a place to call her own. Before we could even think about it she had visits lined up, and a perfect place selected that quickly resulted in obtaining her first home.
Many times it sounds cliche when recommendations are submitted, but please believe that we truly hope that if you are interested in buying or selling a home that you will be lucky enough to have Dianne as your Real Estate professional.teejaymack56
Dianne Needle is wonderful! I called the Coldwell office on a Sunday afternoon to inquire about a property I saw on the internet and Dianne answered the line. From that first phone call to the closing, Dianne was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and took the time to explain the buying process. Since I am a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions. Dianne was very responsive and communicated with me 7 days a week from morning to night to answer all of them! She made my first home buying experience very easy and was able to find me a beautiful condo that was under budget! I would recommend Dianne to anyone looking for a new property and especially to a first-time homebuyer.elinazilberman
Dianne was always a phone call away with any question that I had. She was always in contact with all parties involved constantly. I would recommend Dianne without a doubt!krmcgonagle
I was very impressed with Dianne needle, she was very helpful and friendly she provided me with all the services that I would need to purchase my condo .I found it very helpful and made the closing a breeze , I would recommend her to anyone trying to purchase a property. She was also available 24/7 for any questions I had .I am very happy with my new home.joanoconnor2
Our experience with Dianne is a real estate "success story" by all accounts. Overall, she was a great partner on both the buy and sell sids, extremely responsive and great to work with.
Dianne reached out to us to inquire if we were planning to put our house back on the market - it had been on briefly the year before - and asked to meet with us to understand our objectives. At the time, we were not particularly motivated to sell - while long-term, we wanted to move, we were happy in our current house and had a number of competing priorities. In a nutshell, we told Dianne that we would be motivated to sell only if we found a house in Westwood in a very specific neighborhood.
Within three weeks, Dianne let us know that she had found us a house that met all of our specifications, even down to the actual street. We saw the house the next day, made an offer and had an agreement within 72 hours. All achieved before the house hit MLS. Come to find out that Dianne had cold-called homes in the neighborhood we identified and leveraged her Coldwell banker relationships to find us a house that met all of our needs.
Dianne helped us get our house "Open House-ready" and we received two great offers within the next few weeks. We were in our new house within 90 days and had a great experience on both the buy and sell side.... and would recommend Dianne all around.suzanne nolan
Couldn't have asked for a better realtor to make my first MA home purchase. Dianne was very accommodating, knowledgable and also gave great recommendations for necessary resources.
She eased my mind the entire time about all the intricacies of home buying and when it came time to make the big decisions she was exactly what I needed- Someone to be honest, straightforward and give me that confidence I personally needed to get to the finish line.zuser20140406140358957
It has been a pleasure working with Dianne. She knows the area around Sharon really well and she's very well connected with local brokers. She has always been on top of things to guide us through every step in the buying process. Highly recommended!user8396476
Dianne is a breath of fresh air when it comes to buying a house in today's market. She invests time upfront in knowing her buyer, researches diligently, and communicates effectively. She is completely aligned with her client balancing artfully the rational decision making with a true appreciation of her client's emotions. Last but not least Dianne plans and helps strategize every step of the way towards a successful outcome. It was a very fulfilling experience working with Dianne and bat not an eyelid if you are thinking of a 21st century realtor to represent you for your real estate needs.zuser20140616193419598
My husband and I met Dianne at an open house in Sharon. My husband being skeptical of realtors, he wasn't sure what process we should go about to move. Dianne was persistent, contacted us. We met with her and felt a mutual connection. When conducting business, it's important to find that person who is saavy, a "people" person, because buying and selling is all about that. In the end, we came out with a wonderful house, perfect location, in our budget and even better...a friend!!zuser20140603090840780
We met Dianne through a recommendation of a previous client with Caldwell Banker. We were beginning a house search for our son who was a first time home buyer. Dianne took the time to find out what our son's needs and wants were, and then she bent over backwards to find properties that would fit those needs. She was always available when it came time to look at homes fitting OUR schedule. She did her homework on the properties that we saw providing any pertinent info we needed as well as some that most would not have found. When it came time to make important decision, she was supportive and encouraging. She did her best to make sure we were comfortable and in the end our son came out with his perfect home. Dianne's easy going manner made it so easy to talk to her, and before the process was over we felt as though we were going through this with a dear friend. It would be our supreme pleasure to recommend Dianne to anyone we know that is in the market for a new home.sem10

I found Dianne by accident when I walked in to the local Coldwell Banker office, looking for an agent to sell our house. We had very stringent time frame because we were moving soon and want to get the deal done before winter comes. Dianne impressed me with great efficiency. The next evening, she came and provided marketing analysis and suggestions for improvements. We followed her suggestions and we had the open house in a week. We then had the offer the following week and had the house sold as we expected. Dianne is very experienced broker and made the whole process extremely easy for me as a seller. I highly recommend her!yinsy
We met Dianne at an open house for a large but rundown property in Boston. She was the representing realtor. I was impressed with the way she didn't push the property on me but just pointed out details I might not have caught on my own. I brought my wife to see the house the next day. Dianne was very flexible in arranging a Monday night viewing with the seller's family still in the house. My wife wasn't impressed by the house but we bonded with Dianne right away and told her of our stress at trying to get our own condo ready to sell.
Dianne came over to see our condo a few days later, on a week night, and gave us simple advice on how to present our place. Suddenly, the idea of selling our condo became very achievable and within a week we had set up an open house.
We had three offers the day after the open house and very quickly moved onto the contract phase. Dianne marshaled the process along at every step making sure that everything was on schedule with the documents, etc. we were responsible for and with constant communication with the buyers realtor, attorney, inspector, etc. Everything went very smoothly and on-time. We sold the condo for $11,000 over asking and for $80,000 over our purchase price 4 years earlier. Dianne made me feel that I had a team behind me supporting me at every step. A truly great feeling when navigating such a stressful transaction as selling a property.
We were so impressed with Dianne that we used her as our buying realtor as well. She showed us properties right on target with our needs and wishes and arranged a good deal only slightly above asking in this extreme seller's market. She arranged our attorney, who did an excellent job, and worked closely with our mortgage broker to get the financing approved on time. The seller had transferred the deed to the relocation company that represented the seller. We ran into an impasse on the financing when the bank balked at a one-deed transfer. Dianne broke that impasse by leveraging the resources of Coldwell Banker's affiliated relocation company to clearly lay out the issues and solutions for this problem. The bank agreed to the loan the next day. The whole time-line from showing our condo to moving into our new house took 6 weeks.
I can't say enough about Dianne, her professionalism, her knowledge and her tenacity in getting the deal done. I would heartily recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house.
