Diana Otteson is by far one of the best REALTORS® I’ve had the pleasure to list with for the recent sale of my condominium.

Her depth of knowledge and experience was clearly evident throughout the entire process of the listing and selling of my property. Diana immediately recognized that in order to sell my condo in a community saturated with similar listings that it had to stand out in the crowd.

She quickly enlisted the services of an outstanding professional stager who quickly converted my man-cave to a neutral, comfortable and inviting living space that potential buyers could see themselves in. Immediately following the staging, she organized an amazing professional photo shoot that captured the recent transformation into a display of warmth and inviting charm.

Diana displayed her eloquent writing abilities in the wonderful description of the listing, ensuring that it was warm and detailed and that it was written in a way that attracted interested buyers.

Diana’s advice, guidance and negotiating skills were second to none in vetting offers. She completely took all the stress away from me during the back and forth offers and negotiations, (and I was stressed) she said. “This is one of the reasons you hired me and you need to trust me” I did and I was very thankful for my decision. At all times she ensured, as the seller, my best interests were a priority. I received exactly what my asking price was, which was actually more than I had hoped for. She consistently demonstrated her in-depth knowledge, professionalism, advice and guidance throughout the entire sales process, which resulted in the quick sale of my condominium in a saturated market. I would highly recommend Diana for all your real estate needs.

“In April 2018, I decided to list my house for sale. I made a call to Diana on a Tuesday to see if we could meet and if she would be my REALTOR®.

She agreed to meet me that night and was able to explain the process to me. We came to an agreement that same evening and the next Thursday at noon she came with her photographer to take pictures of the house.

The pictures were perfect, and very professional, so my house was shown at its best value. My house was on her site by Friday and the next day I had a visit already scheduled for the Monday. I also had another visit scheduled later in the day on Monday but I sold the house, for asking price, after the first visit!!!

It took only one visit and my house was sold!!!! That was fabulous, she took care of everything after this. I signed the purchase and sale agreement and she told me what I needed to do before the closing. The steps were clear and easy to follow.

Whenever I had a question or concern, I could reach Diana and she had the answers for me. I have sold two other homes before this one, and my experience was not that good. But this time because I had the right people around me and I didn’t feel alone, it was easier to get through this big decision.

I would recommend Diana Otteson as your REALTOR® to anybody. She is the best in town and very professional. She takes the time needed with her clients, takes great pictures of your house and keeps you informed of everything. Her time and value within this process is critical.

Thanks Diana for all the work you did for me!!!

“Thank you so very much for your help and expertise in selling our old home.

We all moved there in 1982, and it’s sad for us to finally move on from it, but we hope the new owners enjoy and care for it as much as we did. The sale went extremely, and surprisingly, fast and relatively easy Thank you very much for the extra trips and effort you put in to make it happen. It was a pleasure working with you!
