    Diana was recommended to me by dear friend who knows real estate- and until then I had no idea how wonderful a realtor could be! I owned a house which we had leased out over the years and the previous broker was - let’s say a minimalist- as in do as little as possible. Diana first impressed me with her low-key authenticity and intelligence - a lovely person who is helpful and flexible and whose goal is to make her clients happy. I was not sure whether to continue to lease out or sell, and Diana was able to patiently support whichever I chose to do. It was after I chose to sell that she and her team kicked into high gear and I saw how capable and willing they were to take care of any details. First off, we had a highball offer that turned out not to be real - and Diana was unruffled, knew of the buyers' broker and told me to take it slowly and not to worry. Then we had a couple of competing offers and each had some pros and some cons - and Diana was able to solidly guide the sale through without stress. During the process she and her team were able to get a contractor to lay bathroom tile the very next day, to buy and install new appliances, and to deal with inspections and the escrow company and more. They really got me through the process intact - and Diana got the price we knew the house was worth. When I am ready to sell again (or buy) I will call Diana first thing. She's really remarkable.

    Diana is the best broker on the Westside of LA, full stop. If you are interested in buying or selling your house and you want someone who's smart, hardworking, knowledgeable, and gets the job done - look no further. One of the greatest parts about teaming up with Diana is she's the most "non-broker" of the brokers you'll meet - meaning if you're looking to buy or rent, she listens to what you want and she doesn't waste your time showing you inappropriate listings or rush you into making a decision just to book a commission. She's focused on long term relationship - she wants to be your real estate resource for whatever your needs are and however they change over years (not a couple of months). She looked on and off for a house for my wife and me in Venice for several years - never getting frustrated, always being excited each time she found something that she thought could be a good fit, never rushing a decision or pushing us into a deal until she helped us find the house which turned out to be the home we always wanted. Once we got into the negotiations for the house, I realized that she's also a top negotiator - knowing where to push and how to get what you really need done. For anyone looking for a broker in the area, I always recommend first and only Diana!

    I wasn't entirely sure I was ready to list my house when I was first given Diana's name and number from a friend. That all changed during our initial meeting as I felt so comfortable and assured about the process that I decided to go for it (without the slightest bit of pressure). What a GREAT decision that was. Diana is a TOTAL pro. She knows the Venice and surrounding market intimately, is a masterful negotiator, and seems to know just what to do in any instance. She always had my best interest at heart, made the entire process from beginning to end seamless, and she was available to me at ANY time if I had a concern, question, or needed more information about anything. I found Diana to be incredibly proactive at EVERY stage, leaving no room for negative surprises. And those that work with Diana are also as wonderful as they could possibly be. TRUE pros. I recommend Diana to anyone, with the HIGHEST confidence. You'll be in VERY good hands if you work with her.

    Diana is simply the best. Working with her changed my entire feeling and understanding of what a broker can be. She has impeccable taste, is gracious and fun, unbelievably diligent and considerate. I work in film and hire lots of people - I would hire Diana to do anything - she's just the kind of person who will always succeed. I live in NY and could not be around for many of the important decisions and the huge range of small tasks that need to be done when selling a house the right way - Diana made it extremely easy for me - she supervised the aesthetic presentation, the repairs and upgrades we made prior to listing, and many other crucial details. The repairs were better, smarter, faster and better priced than any I had done before. After she was done, I almost didn't want to sell it anymore - she had made the place so much better. I can't say enough good things. If you can work with her you would be a fool to work with anyone else.

    We are looking to buy a House in Santa Monica Canyon and Diana has introduced us to Houses for sale some of which are not even listed yet. She has also helped us for years renting our two Rental Houses and she has been nothing but outstanding. She's a pleasure to work with, smart, and professional, honest, hardworking, always in touch and well experienced in her field. We feel very comfortable and confident with her representing us to find the perfect House and tenants for our rental Property. A Landlord herself and a Santa Monica Canyon Resident she knows what to look for. Also, I really appreciated how 'in touch' she is with us during each transaction. Knowledgeable, friendly, professional, flexible, easy to work with - we couldn't ask for more! We have been happily referring her to our friends and colleges for years, and you still do as the feedback received has been nothing short of great.

    I've known Diana for many years. I've also known a few other realtors for the same number of years that I could have selected to represent me in selling my house in Venice. I chose Diana because of her expertise in the neighbourhood in which I lived, and also because of her warmth, kindness, & willingness to listen to my needs. Diana knows her stuff! She presents her opinions on various factors, but is never pushy or inflexible. She was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had, even while on her vacation! Diana was able to find a buyer for my house, at my desired price, in very little time. I realize it doesn't always happen this way, but I truly believe it's because of Diana that it happened as fast as it did. I highly recommend Diana for all of your real estate needs. Simply put, she's simply the best!

    My partner and I have worked with Diana for over 10 years. She has been very helpful in negotiating purchases, lease agreements. She is a problem solver, is fun to work with. She is very knowledgeable of the Venice, Santa Monica, and Westside area and has a huge understanding of architectural properties and their needs. It is always a pleasure to have her on the phone and get her expertise. I highly recumbent her to any prospective buyers or anyone interested in properties on the Westside.
  • Buyer

    Moving my family from NYC to Los Angeles was intimidating. Dianna was a god send. Not just from a real estate perspective, although she handled that aspect beautifully, but she helped in a much larger sense as well. She was thoughtful and knowledgeable and attentive and ultimately... really helpful. I can't say enough nice things about her. We could not have managed the transition to here without her. She didn't just find us a house; she helped us find a home.
  • Seller

    Diana was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in every way. She was particularly helpful in making recommendations and providing assistance in staging and photographing the house so that it looked its best. She was also extremely knowledgeable and firm in dealing with offers and negotiations during the sale process. We were very pleased with the outcome.
  • Buyer

    Diana was fantastic - worked very hard on our behalf. When the sellers tried to back out, she kept calm and gave excellent counsel. She won't push you into the wrong situation just to make a commission. We liked her so much we asked her to sell our old house!
  • Buyer

    Diana and her team provided great attention to detail and strong knowledge of the market in our area. She brought great insight to the buying process in a very competitive market. Highly recommend working with her and her very professional team.
