Testimonials From Past Clients (Buyers & Sellers)  

*****Diana - I also thank you for all the work you put in both before, during and after the buying process. You know I was clueless and you went above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks so much and I pray that GOD blesses you exceedingly and abundantly above that which you can ask or even think.   - Rodney D.

*****"Diana helped me find my first home here in the Raleigh area. She was clear and up front with how she handles business and her clients. She also follows through on her word.  While I worked with Diana as a Buyer's Agent, I'm sure that her high quality of service to her clients transfers over when she is acting as a seller's agent as well.  She patiently drove me to many, many houses and, ultimately picked a home that she felt would be right for our needs and....was spot on!   She strives to make the best decision and is very fair.  She puts very little pressure on the buyer as she knows how important buying just the right house is!    Quality, personality, professional-that sums it up!"  - Tracey C.

***** Diana - Was the best!   Christine M.

***** Top Qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity  - Christine B.

***** I have high standards when it comes to service, especially since we had to move away. Diana provided amazing service and took great care of our property.  Ryan & Shannon M.

C.G, Seller
Diana was awesome! This is what she was born to do lol! She was always available & willing to help in any way she could. Would definitely recommend her to anyone buying/selling in the Raleigh area.
E.F, Buyer
Diana Braun, our real estate agent, was the best agent we have ever had. She was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of buying a home and the surrounding area. Diana was very thorough, easy to communicate with, reliable, trustworthy and transparent. She is an asset to her company and my husband and I couldn’t be happier with her abilities as an agent.
S.S, Buyer
Diana was amazing to work with such a wonderful person and wonderful at her job!
DG, Buyer
Diana Braun is an asset to your company! She goes beyond the clock to provide top-notch services. We were blessed to have her as our realtor!
G.T, Seller
Diana exceeded our expectations in all areas of support, preparation and subsequent sale of our house. There are so many small things she did to help sell our house...had people lined up to see the house before it was on the market, staged is (it was empty), gave advice on repairs and improvements to help it sell and more! We could not be happier with the speed of the sale...we had the house under contract in less than two days. We were kept informed at every step of the sales process right up to the acceptance of the check for the sale. After closing Diana has reached out to us several times to be sure everything is completed. We could not be happier with all Diana has done for us!
M.P, Buyer
Diana was absolutely wonderful! She guided me along each step of the way, helping me navigate the purchasing process. She has also checked in with me multiple times to see how I'm doing after the sale. I would definitely use her again in future purchases, as well as recommend her to others in this area who are home shopping.
G.M. Buyer
Diana consistently demonstrated her commitment to help us at every step of hte buying process. I am selling another house and I will use Diana to sell my next house. Nothing more needs to be said
D.L., Seller
Diana feels like a member of our family and we keep in contact with her even when we aren't contemplating a move. Our extended family has used her for over ten real estate transactions in the past eight years. She is extremely knowledgeable and very helpful in assisting us all in both the selling and buying process. In this situation she helped us with the difficult prospect of selling a house in an active adult community where we were competing with new construction and the builder's quick move in homes.
C.S, Buyer
This is our 5th home (all new builds except this one) and our 1st out-of-state move in our 33 years of marriage. My husband and I are both retired and we have two active pups under two and a half so selling our home in North Texas prior to contracting was not an option. Thanks to my wonderful Merrill Lynch guy in Houston, we were able to pre-qualify by offering our retirement monies in investments and Diana accepted us as clients. She was patient with researching my husband's searches on Google and of course, came up with several good properties of her own. She provided maps, links to area towns/cities to Raleigh, links to interests we had, etc. The day we finally got over here to meet with her (after getting stuck in Atlanta the first try), we hit the ground running and Diana efficiently plotted our day. Midday, we happened upon a property that had just come on the market. She recognized what a great match the house was, how much we liked it, and rather than waste more time on other properties, she focused on the neighborhood and city where the home was --- an excellent way to utilize our time! Diana was there for us every step of the way, contracting, inspections, closing and after that. What luck it was having someone like her in this next chapter of our life! I call Diana #Exceptional!
V.G., Seller
Diana rocks!
J.F., Buyer
Diana was always available whenever we would find a house and wanted to see it. She gave us honest and helpful information and kept our spirits high whenever we would lose an opportunity with a contract.
H. F. (Buyer)
We have bought and sold 8 time. Diana Braun, by far, was the best representative we have ever had. We would recommend her to anyone buying or selling!
Maureen & Dave Leney
This was our fourth transaction with Diana Braun over the last five years (2 purchases and 2 sales), and we were very pleased with how well she worked with us. We now consider her a "family friend". Because we highly recommended her, both our daughter (purchase and sale) and my sister (relocation purchase) used her services and were very satisfied. Dave & Maureen Leney
Gary & Anne-Therese Hunt
Diana was a real pleasure to work with and spent the time needed to help us find the right house. I'd absolutely recommend here and will use her again if ever needed.
Raymond & Katherine Cheek
She above and beyond to help us get the house ready for closing.
David & Maureen Leney (Buyers)
This was our family's fifth transaction with Diana and we have been extremely pleased with everything she has done for us!!!! We have highly recommended her to many of our friends.
Melissa L.
Diana is amazing! I sing her praises to everyone I know that's looking for a realtor - my family and I couldn't imagine working with anyone else. In addition to the amazing job she did, I feel like she's family now! :-)
Chyna & Khaleed V.
Diana was a God Send! Being a homeowner for a property located out of state, she assisted not only in the facilitation of the marketing and sale of the home but also in getting the home in selling condition after previous tenants trashed it. Her knowledge of the area, connection with the relevant and honorable contractors and patience with closing out several necessary home issues allowed my family to spend more time enjoying our newborn who arrived in the middle of this process. I would 200% Recommend her services for buyers or sellers in the are and should I require a REALTOR in the area wouldn't hesitate to reach out to her again. Her professionalism is second to none and her positive, go-getter energy kept me in high spirits throughout the selling process.
Paula & Ron M.
Diana, exceeded all my expectations in terms of her availability, market knowledge, and understanding of our relocation process. We also appreciated her and professional and kind treatment during the entire process. We would strongly recommend Diana to anyone!
David A.
Diana is an asset to your company. Thanks!
Katherine M.
I enjoyed working with Diana. She didn't waste my time showing me houses she knew wouldn't interest me. I still can't believe it took less than two months to go from first contacting her, to closing on my house! I would definitely recommend her to anyone hunting for a house.
Terri Aucoin
Diana Braun went over and above to ensure my home buying experience went smoothly. She is a "jewel" to the real estate industry and a "gem" to work with. She treats you as if you were a member of her family and her only client. I can't thank her enough for making my first time home purchase an enjoyable and educational experience. Kudos to Real Living Pittman Properties for having such an amazing professional on their team.
Ray & Beth Robinson
Diana is a life saver!!! Great to work with, always positive, and great response time with everything!!! We absolutely love her!!!
Eric & Martha Peters
Diana Braun was outstanding!!! She was always available to help us house hunt. Answer questions, walk us through the building process etc. She was absolutely awesome! We would highly recommend Diana to anyone! Simply the BEST AGENT!
Sean & Christina Ruehl
Diana is a superstar! You meet people like this just a few times in an entire lifetime!
Christopher Adams
Overall I was pleased with Diana and the way she helped in this transaction go through smoothly.  It was a pleasure working with her and I would not hesitate to do it again.  I will definitely recommend her to friends!
