Great agent, very easy to work with. Strong negotiation skills and thorough knowledge of the industry. I would highly recommend Diane as a buyers or sellers agent, as I have used her for both.
The Lewis Team patiently worked with us for almost 18 months as we searched with very specific criteria for the home of our dreams. They knew our neighborhoods, our likes and dislikes, even when and where to find us when there was a "must see now" home.
On another note, Kia and I both want you to know how much we appreciate your help and PATIENCE over the years. You have been wonderful.
