Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Waikanae

Selling a home is the biggest financial transaction most of us ever face, so the prospect of selling and moving raises all kinds of emotional and practical issues. That’s precisely what attracts Dianne to the real estate business.

Ultimately it’s all about people, she says. It’s about building relationships, not only about selling houses. People want to be listened to, have good guidance, and clear thinking. You need to minimise their stress and give lots of encouragement. For Dianne, there’s no substitute for being valued and trusted in her community. Word of mouth recommendations are her best reward. Her testimonials tell a consistent story: vendors feel they’ve dealt with someone who’s genuine and trustworthy, who has good ethics and integrity, who’s knowledgeable, who will put her heart and soul into helping them achieve their desired outcome.

Despite her relative newness to real estate, Dianne is already winning achievement awards: Rookie of the year in 2014/15 and in 2016 a Leaders Platinum Club Award.


Dianne is the real estate agent who defies the stereo-type of real estate agents and I cannot recommend her highly enough for both buyers and sellers – she provides the very best service for both parties. During the past 12 months Dianne has continued to ensure that I was informed of other properties which seemed to fit what I was seeking and was tireless in showing a significant number of them to me. The house I have now bought resulted in a phone call from Dianne informing me that she had just seen (literally) a house that she thought was just what I was looking for - and that proved to be the case. From my experience Dianne is the perfect agent buyers and sellers. For sellers she makes every effort to ensure a potential buyer is made aware of all the selling points of a house; unlike most agents, she makes a genuine effort to ‘sell’ a property to a potential buyer without being pushy. For buyers Dianne takes the trouble to ascertain the essential, and less essential features of a house a buyer is looking for and goes the extra mile to find a match between a buyer’s requirements and a property. I have found Dianne to be completely reliable, extremely pleasant to work with and she possesses an exceptionally high level of integrity. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a real estate agent for buyers and sellers alike.

When my elderly uncle announced he was selling his house in Waikanae and moving in to a retirement village, he told me he had been recommended a very good land agent through friends in his church. I was introduced to Dianne and have been working closely with her over the last 8-10 weeks in getting the house ready for sale and then marketed. That recommendation has proved to be very good indeed. It has been a pleasure working with Dianne. What seemed like a mammoth task in getting the house ready was made so much easier by the wonderful support from Dianne right from day one. Her contacts for getting small jobs done around the house have all been excellent. I live almost 2 hours away in Whanganui and often I had to ask Dianne to meet various people at the house to get jobs done or furniture to be taken away, this was never a problem and was very much appreciated by myself, and my uncle. Dianne has been very professional in all her dealings with us, she made sure that my uncle was always the first to be informed on what was happening and was involved in all decisions relating to the sale of his house. I can recommend Dianne to anyone looking for an honest, trustworthy and reliable land agent. A land agent who is with you on the whole journey from the very beginning to the very end. Without wanting to sound too capitalistic, it is also about getting a good price for the house. We are very happy with the sale price and how the house was marketed. Thank you Dianne.
