Kind Words - Testimonials

Testimonials from past clients submitted on Realtor.com:

- Diane was so helpful, beyond patient, and understanding with us throughout the process. She pointed out features of the home, both good and bad that we wouldn't have noticed. She showed us what to look for, and as first time buyers, we were very grateful! She guided us along the way, but was not pushy. We wouldn't have bought this home that we're in now if it weren't for her.
Thanks Diane!

Bought a home in Wheaton Jan 2016

Diane and her husband Mike worked tirelessly for us throughout our housing hunt (that spanned 7 months and 5 different cities!). Unbelievable work ethic, so kind, selfless and ridiculously accommodating. She even showed us a home on Christmas Eve! I would certainly recommend her to anyone searching for a new home. I truly cannot say enough nice things about her.

Bought a home in 2015 in La Grange, IL.

Diane was a great agent. She was very persistent and responsive when a new property came on the market. At the same time, she didn't push us to look at properties out of our price range or out of our areas of interest. She was extremely knowledgable about the process and about other services like lawyers or inspectors. 

She also helped us rent out our condo fairly quickly. We'd recommend her in a heartbeat.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Elmhurst, IL.

Diane was very patient and helpful with my mother, who is elderly, in her explanation of the process of selling her home and what needed to be done to increase the appeal to potential buyers of her home. Diane willingly received phone calls at any time from my mother and calmly helped decrease her her anxiety during this time. Diane led the whole family in assisting with getting the house ready for sale and kept in touch frequently to update us on what was happening and what was the next best step. She has a great network of others that she referred us to: estate sale group, home repair/remodel group, legal group, etc. The end result was a sale to the first person who made an offer!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Hillside, IL.

Bob & Doris. First, Diane proposed several good strategies for selling our home. Next, she provided excellent advice on staging and presenting our home. She used the latest technologies and presented our home with a nice assortment of pictures. The result was a quick sale at an equitable price. Most importantly Diane’s caring personality provided us with confidence.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Burr Ridge, IL.

What a long journey; so glad Diane was there to help myself and family along the way. We started out with an idea of what we wanted and the end result was something quite different and much much better. Diane was an excellent partner throught the entire process. Her understanding of both the market and of the needs of my family was superb...not to mention her patience while the family debated this or that aspect of the future. I would highly recommend Diane.

My parents passed away and we had the house to sell. Diane helped us organize the everything from preparing the house with moving things out to shows it true beauty inside to placing flowers outside for curb appeal. Then coming back with staging the house to sell! With all that we had going on with the loss of our parents. She carried the situation for the sale of this home on her for us in a timely manner. With interior decorating skills and professional real estate skill I highly recommend her for your agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Lombard, IL.

Diane was the answer to my prayers for selling my home. I had a disappointing first attempt at selling my home after being transferred to another state. Diane entered the picture and stayed on top of everything giving me piece of mind that the sale was in her very capable hands. She took care of all the details and never gave up - she was determined to get the right buyer for my home - which she did. She has my highest recommendation. If you need to sell your home - Diane is the person you need on your side.

Sold a home in 2014.

We found a new home and had to quickly get ours on the market. Diane helped us stage our home to make it look better, helped us get it listed quickly, and had many showings to keep the traffic moving through. She followed up with agents to find out what people thought as they came through and gave us advice on the appropriate price to list the house at. At the end, we sold the house within our timing and budget and are now enjoying our new house (that we had found already but she helped us with the purchasing end as well). Great agent!

Sold a home in 2014 in Glen Oak, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137.

I am pleased to recommend Diane. Having had a bad experience before I obtained her, I found Diane to be thoroughly prepared, having properties lined up for me to look at, she was very professional and went above and beyond to find the right fit for a new home for me-she sold me a condo and then was able to re-sell it a short time later. You're getting the best and will have great results working with Diane!

Sold a home in 2014 in Inverness, IL 60067.

Diane is the cream of the crop when it comes to Real Estate professionals. We have used Diane to sell two houses and purchase another. Diane was extremely hard working and diligent in all her efforts to help us with our transactions. Diane has a great knowledge of home values and in both sales, we got great offers that went to successful sales in better than expected timeframes. Diane is a pleasure to work with, very patient and understanding of all our needs. I would recommend Diane to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home - in fact, I have recommended her to a family member and she did a GREAT job helping them find a home as well. Top notch!

Bought a home in 2013.

We are so happy to recommend Diane Karpman who was our realtor for the following reasons.
Diane went the extra mile in helping us with the process of buying our second dream home. We had worked with other realtors but she is absolutely the best. Diane was extremely prompt in answering all our questions with knowledge and confidence. She went above and beyond her duties as a realtor and also helped us in the process of renting out our first home. She was not only detail oriented but very sincere and it was a pleasure working with her. We greatly appreciate her service. If anyone is looking for a trustworthy agent we would strongly recommend Diane to be your realtor. Her services were incredible, professional & outstanding!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $275K in Westmont, IL.

Diane did an excellent job helping us buy our first home. She guided us through the process from start to finish. Once we found the house we wanted, she navigated us through the negotiations and gave us a buffer from an difficult seller. If we ever need real estate services again, we will definitely use Diane!

Diane was awesome. We needed to sell quick. She not only did that but got a lot more for the home than we expected. Highly recommended. Even though its a relocation move she still provided time and attention to our home and needs.
She knows Elmhurst, has a great network and does what she says

More Kind Words from Diane's Past Clients:

Dear Diane, 

You have been a true God send! Instead of a nightmare experience, working with you has been a dream come true.  You steered us in the right direction every step of the way and we are grateful for everything you did above and beyond the call of your position as a Realtor.

Thank you,

I can't begin to tell you how delighted and how very fortunate I was to have a realtor such as Diane Karpman.  There may be equals, but none better than Diane.
She demonstrates a high level of professionalism with the best of respect and understanding for all with whom she works.  She really takes the time to understand the dept of your needs.  Most importantly she is a person of integrity who provides a positive forward moving thrust in helping others...she seemed to make all my initial "butterflies" go away.

From Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago 100% Satisfaction Survey August 2011

I cannot say enough about how hard Diane Karpman worked to make our sale a complete success. I can't imagine a better real estate agent than Diane, and I've recommended her to many people already and will continue to do so.

-Steve Amidi


Diane is more than just a professional, she believes that what she does makes a difference in your life - we not only were impressed with Diane's ability to find us the right house, but felt genuinely cared for throughout the entire experience. She went more than the extra mile for us (and we bought a home under $100k). We both really appreciated how well Diane listened to what we wanted and didn't try to steer us away from that.
She also has a wonderful network of people working with her, which was a huge blessing to us because we were new to the entire process. The mortgage broker, insurance agent, attorney, home inspector, etc, were all excellent, friendly people and provided us with top notch service. We would recommend Diane to anyone!
