We used Diane 5 times before she joined the Galles team. She did a terrific job each time. We cannot imagine how anyone could do any better.
I have never, and don’t think ever will have such an awesome experience as with Diane Burnett. She is second to none. I have recommended her to everyone interested in real estate. Diane is a natural at what she does. There’s just not enough time for all the wonderful things that I could say about her. Diane took the time to sincerely learn what we were looking for and was always right on target. She was always a pure joy to be around. If I had the sources, I would buy another house just so I could have the pleasure of working with Diane again. Our hearts have definitely developed a love for her. Today, I would call her a good friend.
We met Diane after unsuccessful attempts to sell our log home with other agents. Friends recommended her, and we understood why soon after we met her. Her cheerful, warm personality won us over right away and we found her to be very professional, intelligent, knowledgeable about the area and marketing strategies, and dedicated to getting the job done. She sold our home, then helped us find another property to buy. She was very perceptive about our likes and dislikes, kept us informed of new listings that might be of interest to us, and skillfully guided us through the process. We had a ball “shopping” properties with her and became close friends. We since have sold and purchased other properties through her and remain convinced that she is the best!
We were out-of-state buyers with limited time to look at properties, so Diane’s knowledge and responsiveness were invaluable. She got to know us as people, not just clients, and really understood what we were looking for. We were doing our own internet searches, and when we gave her a list of properties that interested us, she quickly got back to us with information about them, and scheduled times for us to view them. She didn’t waste our time trying to show us something that wasn’t a good fit for us, often steering us away from some properties that we thought we might like to see, and suggesting some that we had overlooked. I highly recommend Diane, for her knowledge and responsiveness, but above all, for truly understanding us and our needs.
Diane is awesome………she continues to exceed all my expectations ! She continues to keep me abreast of the market in the area of interest by updating listings over the internet as I reside outside the state of Colorado.
We used Diane for a real estate transaction and tho we were out-of-state buyers we felt well-taken care of. Diane is detailed, solicitous of our interests, and interpreted our needs exactly. She is patient and willing and also educated in the Pagosa area real estate. And since we are horse owners, we appreciate her expertise as an owner and breeder in finding appropriate properties for our review, we got a solid profile of the area and that made us confidence in our ultimate decision. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an expert who can “read” her clients right and work in their very best interest.
Holy cow! Diane is the absolute BEST! When we were finally able to flee the big noisy scary city, we were fortunate to find Diane in peaceful Pagosa Springs. In fact, another agent in Denver recommended her highly. We have been delighted with her knowledge of the area, experience with the buying process (a BIG mess with our bank dragging their heels), responsiveness to our needs for a home in the forest, ability to negotiate with former homeowners AND combine professionalism with an exuberant delightful attitude. Although our bank was a disaster getting the paperwork completed before closing, Diane kept us on top of the situation so we could stay in contact with the bank. At the last minute (and I DO mean the last minute) the closing was completed–thanks to Diane. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
My husband and I were interested in vacation property in the Pagosa Springs area and were so fortunate to find Diane! When we first contacted her, we were only semi-serious about purchasing anything, just wanted to start looking at options and see what was out there. We were also all over the map with what we wanted (land vs. house, acreage, etc.). Diane was completely OK with this; she gathered info on multiple property types and paid close attention to our reaction to each, making a true effort to understand our likes and dislikes. She was extremely patient, let us explore things without ever trying push us in a particular direction, and was always available to answer questions. Once we decided to make an offer, she was incredibly helpful throughout the entire purchasing process, giving us lots of support whenever we needed it. Since we were making the purchase “long-distance” we needed help with meeting inspectors/workers at the house, etc. and Diane was there for us every time – she truly went above and beyond on multiple occasions. She was extremely organized and kept on top of everything to ensure closing went as planned. Even after closing, she continued to make herself available for questions and wanted to be sure we were happy with our new home (which we were!!). Can’t say enough good about her, would give her our very highest recommendation.
Diane helped us to land in a dream vacation property. This pursuit was our first significant financial commitment to the economy together, and my cohort’s first in Mountain country. She sifted through all our questions amongst our busy and often remote work lifestyle we live to find us something we will value forever. She spent the time (on our schedule) to guide us through Pagosa Springs and surrounding area to find opportunities based on our priorities. Her responsiveness and thoughtfulness is unmatched. Diane is perceptive and resourceful, and bleeds initiative and honest happiness in her work.
We started our process of moving out of California approximately 3 years ago. We also knew that Pagosa Springs was hopefully our final destination. We contacted Galles Properties and 3 other real estate companies in hopes of getting a feel for the housing market and availability. Diane Burnett from Galles Properties was the only one to respond…We actually met Diane in person when we walked into her office and introduced ourselves. When we said our names she remembered 2-3 years before responding to our request. As a buyer versus a seller we needed someone to look out for us. To always have us in their mind. To be mindful of our needs and for us to matter. Diane was all of that and more. She gave us hope when we were running out. Diane Burnett found us our forever home. She helped us from 3 years prior and still calls us to see how we are doing. The best part of this adventure with Diane is of course our home but also we call her our friend.
Diane Burnett is a first class agent. We were told that houses in our price range were not selling and might take a year or more to sell. Listed our home with her on a Friday had a bid on Monday. She was on top of everything all through the process. She is our real estate agent in pagoda springs for life. Couldn’t ask for anyone any better. Besides being an excellent agent she is one nice lady. Thank you Diane.
I found Diane to be experienced and highly competent. She knows her market extremely well and pursues all leads aggressively. She helped me to move a difficult property during an exceptionally bad downturn in the real estate market; no small feat. Additionally she is easy-going and a pleasure to work with.
