Testimonials for Diane Christner

  • Brent

    Diane helped me recently close on a condo in Sarasota and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. She made the transaction smooth, helped me find the best deal available in the market and was just a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a realtor who is responsive, dedicated and professional.

  • May Wong

    We are living outside Florida but we can definitely trust Diane in making sure the property has been inspected and reported to us with her honesty, integrity and professionalism. I am a realtor, a broker and a condo property manager and therefore well aware of how important it is to find your service provider who is trust-worthy and in the best interest of the clients yet be prudent and adhere to Code of Ethics. Diane is one I have no doubt to recommend and I have in actual fact recommended her to my family and friends who find Diane's service and advice excellent.

  • Tim

    We purchased our first property in SW Florida with the help of Diane. The transaction went through smoothly although we are non US residents. Our experience was a pleasant one as Diane made sure everything was taken care of. She is very professional and we do highly recommend her.

  • James

    My wife and I had a great experience with Diane. We bought a vacation rental in Bradenton, and the process was fairly simple even remotely. We did most of the work from Michigan, and everything worked out well. Highly recommend.

  • Natasha

    We had a great experience working with Diane. She is a wealth if information compared to other agents we worked with in the past. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate property in Sarasota/Bradenton area.

  • Wendy
