After meeting with Diane and discussing our needs and expectations we selected her as our listing agent. Diane is honest, helpful, very prompt, and efficient. She does her job well. We sold our home quickly, and the transaction went smoothly. I would recommend Diane to anyone who needs a well qualified real estate professional.Mike S.
Working with Diane was great! We were relocating to the Winston-Salem area for my husband's new job. She showed us around town and we visited many neighborhoods and homes. She was very patient with us and wanted to make sure we found a house that would be suitable for the whole family. She was a great friend to us and our children. She really made our kids feel like an important part of the process. She is very knowledgable about her community and and works hard for her clients. We are loving our new home. You can't go wrong with Diane!

I was extremely satisfied with the work Diane did to sell my Dad's house. It was co-owned with my sister, so that presented some challenges because she lives out of town. Diane was always keeping me up to date with progress and the listing went very quickly. We sold it in 2 weeks, which thrilled me to have it done so promptly. The suggestions Diane gave me were spot on - and the timing was just perfect. I never hesitated to call or text her if I had any concerns, and she would always get right back to me. This was the second time we had worked together, and I would call her again!
Diane is one of the most professional, knowledgeable, and pleasurable realtors we have ever worked with. So much so that we bought two houses from her! We were 'that' couple that didn't know what we wanted. Diane is a Winston Salem local which proved invaluable to us. She was extremely patient and showed us everything under the sun in her adorable orange Jeep. We were able to narrow things down and when it came time to make an offer, we felt like she had done her homework and we felt confident in the offer. She was always quick to reply to nay communication.I highly recommend Diane. She will be a bulldog for you. I consider her a friend and you will too!
Diane Roberts is an absolute pleasure to work with. I was a first time home buyer and needed someone to help me find a home that I loved and was within my budget. I’m a very skeptical person and she had to show me several homes before we found the perfect fit for me. My work schedule was not ideal either, working 60 hours a week didn’t leave much time to look at properties but that did not deter Diane. Diane worked around my hectic schedule to show me properties and advise me of certain purchasing aspects I had no prior knowledge of. She is the absolute best and I look forward to working with her on the future.
I had the pleasure of working with Diane Roberts when recently selling my home in Ardmore. I could not have asked for a better agent to work with. She knew the market and knew exactly what I needed to do to get my house ready for market. Diane had my house sold in two days for above asking price. Fantastic agent and great person to work with. Simply the best!!!Matt
I came to Diane Roberts, Realtor/Broker, at a major transition in my life, with a modest budget and sometimes contradicting needs and wishes. Diane guided me through the, at times, overwhelming process, gently guiding me as well as reigning me in as I clarified what I really wanted in a home. Diane also stayed on top of the mortgage process, various inspections, and was the key to a successful closing, on time and under budget. I am thrilled with my new home and know that because of diane's help---it is the perfect home for 'me'!. I highly recommend Diane Roberts to anyone in need of a Realtor.

Diane was there every step of the way during our recent real estate transactions. She was extremely professional, friendly, and knowledgeable and was always available to answer questions. Diane provided excellent advice and as a result we quickly sold one home and purchased our dream home!
Nick and Elizabeth
Choosing Diane as our Realtor was the best decision we could have made. She ensured the sell of our house was as painless as possible, offering great advice and remaining professional at every point of the process. Diane's ability to work with all ages and backgrounds was a valuable trait to us and her belief that she should always be available for our questions and potential selling of our home was very helpful. We will definitely call Diane whenever we have Real Estate needs and also refer her to our friends and family with no hesitation as we know she will do a great job with everyone!
Diane Roberts was incredible when it came to buying and selling our house. She is bright, energetic and totally professional. She makes the entire experience painless and smooth. We have used other agents for moves outside her region and they just don’t compare. She has the right personality, and a high degree of experience, that makes the process remarkably easy. I would not consider using anyone else!
'We were one of the lucky ones...to reach out to Diane Roberts!
My 87 year old mother fell last fall and went to an independent living community. We needed to sell her 68 year old, 3 bedroom condominium as soon as we could, not an easy task. Diane was patient, understanding and did a superb job at trying to navigate us through these unchartered waters. The market for this particular property was all but not existent....yet she continued to market it, compare others like it and helped me convince my deliberate mother that we overpriced it to begin with... a soft soggy spring did nothing to alleviate the lack of a nonexistent buyer..Yet Diane marched on, finally we had to rent, just 1 person was interested and they came all the way from Pakistan all of places, to work at Bowman Gray.
We will conitnue to use Diane's perservance and market knowledge when we try to sell it again after this renter. We highly recommend Diane for a true professional agent and appreciate everything she did for us including meeting the carpet shampooer and paying him on our absent behalf! Way above and beyond I'd say!!
Thanks again Diane !!! "
~~In March of 2014 we tried to sell my mom’s house. After many attempts and meeting with prospective buyers which took many hours from my work day I contacted Diane Roberts thru a mutual friend.
After getting paperwork filled out the house went on the market in the middle of June 2014. Within 48 hours we had the first offer. Within the next few days we had several offers on the table. In less than two weeks we had accepted an offer and before the end of July 2014 we had closed the sale.
My only regret was that I did not contact Diane first.
I came to Diane Roberts at a major transition in my life with a modest budget and sometimes contradicting needs and wishes. She guided me through the entire process, as well as provided me with many options to help me determine what I really wanted in a new home. Diane also stayed on top of the mortgage process, various inspections, and she was the key to our successful closing, on time and under budget. Diane made sure I was covered from the start through closing and even after moving in to make sure everything was alright.
Diane was very helpful in my last home purchase process, from beginning to end. She was always available to show me places that met my search criteria and to answer any question I had. She was able to show me multiple options and neighborhoods and when the right home was spotted she did a great job during negotiation period with sellers agent. I strongly recommend Diane as your Real Estate agent on your next home search and purchase.

Diane Roberts was our real estate agent in the recent sale of our home in Winston-Salem, NC. We couldn't have been happier with our outcome. Without a doubt, my husband and I have never seen a real estate agent work so hard to make a sale.
Diane had worked with us to sell our home 6 years ago and even put an ad in the newspaper on her own dollar - this impressed us. However, we were not very motivated so we decided to rent the house. Diane asked us if we would consider using her again when we later decided to try and sell.
5 years later we decided we wanted to be done with it. At first, we used our rental company as our real estate agent because it was so easy, we were already working with them and we just asked them to put it up for sale. They were terrible at their job and completely ignored our requests and did nothing to try to sell our home. My husband has a much better memory than I do and remembered Diane. We looked her up and boy are we glad we did.
Diane went above and beyond to sell this home. We live in Salt Lake City and Diane took care of everything. She assessed what the house needed prior to putting it on the market, hired a handyman, and had everything done to show the home - and discussed with us each step of the process. She even took care of things like the renters mail that continued to be put in the mail box and the yard care. She held numerous open houses. Once under contract, she was good at helping us analyze what really needed to be done and had good suggestions and solutions for things that we didn't need to spend money on and how to keep our potential buyer happy. She was a good problem solver. We trusted her suggestions and they were always right. She was also very good at staying in touch. She found out our best ways of communicating with her and used those. We appreciated that attention to detail. We felt like we were in really good hands through in the entire process. It still took us a good while to sell, but that's because of the market we were working with. My husband and I have talked and both feel like Diane should have been paid more! She is a wonderful real estate agent. Allen Tate is lucky to have her and if I ever know of anyone looking to buy or sale in the Winston-Salem area, I will send them directly to Diane.
I was introduced to Diane by a mutual friend who described her as professional, energetic, persevering and dedicated. This was indeed an accurate description. From the moment I met Diane, I knew she was the person who would sell my house. She had done her homework, made excellent suggestions and immediately began her marketing strategy. Within 2 weeks I had 3 showing, 2 offers and a SALE. This was incredible considering the current market. Diane was with me thru the entire process. From the beginning she explained things I didn't understand and then stayed in touch after the closing to ensure I had a smooth transition. I highly recommend Diane Roberts and can confidently say that she is an expert in her field.
We had a fairly large home on approximately 5 acres to sell outside of city limits. While attractive in many ways, our property would require a unique buyer-- if we didn't play our cards well, it could have been one of those unfortunate, drawn-out, expensive situations. We needed to prepare (and sometimes repair) aspects of our house in order to get it ready for presentation-- we wanted to heighten our chances of selling the property in a timely manner without spending unnecessarily. Diane's expertise was invaluable because she knew the difference between superfluous spending and essential investment to draw interest and close a deal. Furthermore, the challenge of setting a price for our property was made easy-- Diane showed us myriad "comparables" broken down into a price-per-square-foot-basis. That exercise helped us see for ourselves how to price our property based on our timetable and desire for an outcome. We can highly recommend Diane. While her knowledge of the business alone renders her an excellent choice, we were impressed with "the work" that she did that made decision-making easy for us, all of which resulted in a successful selling of our property.
From initial contact to closing, Diane attended promptly to every last detail needed to make the home buying process smooth and successful. Whether it was paperwork we needed to take care of as buyers or something that the sellers needed to do, Diane communicated everything as soon as it became known and stayed in touch until it was completed. Diane had excellent working relationships with everyone involved in the process, from other agents to inspectors to appraisers to attorneys and everyone in between. She knows the area inside out and showed us all the possibilities in our price range and location preference, with the result that we have a beautiful, comfortable home that we absolutely love!
Diane has been our realtor in the purchase of two homes over the last 8 years. She helped us not only find the perfect home but did it all while we were based out of town. Finding a home can be stressful and life makes it even more complicated. Diane really gets to know her clients so that she can find them the perfect fit. She is professional, dependable, and personable. She went out of her way to accommodate us in every way possible during the process and was available any time we needed her help. We could not be happier with the experience we had with Diane. She is now family!
As the mother of a first time home buyer, I wanted the purchase to go as smoothly as possible. Diane’s professionalism and expertise were optimal throughout the entire process. It was a great comfort knowing that my daughter was well represented and informed from beginning to end. Diane was an excellent choice and I highly recommend her!
Buying my first home was an exciting and anxious time in my life. Diane eased my mind from the outset and helped to educate me about the process. She was always quick to respond to my questions whether they were by email or by phone. Her professionalism and knowledge as a realtor helped me to feel confident in buying my new home. If I ever go through this process again, I will definitely use Diane.
I recently sold a property with the help of Dianne Roberts and Allen Tate Realty. There were a few obstacles in our path to overcome and Dianne was able walk me through. Her effort and professionalism was outstanding. I will be calling her again!
My experience with Allen Tate's Diane Roberts was excellent. Diane was very patient with me and gave me her full attention . I had a low limit on what I could pay for a home but very high demands in terms of the features I needed for my "forever" home. Diane reseached the market to eliminate homes that would not meet my needs and then took me on tours of everything that met most of my criteria items. That meant we toured MANY homes over a period of 3 months. She was always patient and never pressured me to make a "settle for" decision.
I am now in a house that fits my needs and the price was within my budget. I am still amazed by the time and care she gave me especially since she knew from the beginning that I would not be buying an expensive property.
I highly recommend Diane Roberts both for her knowledge of the local real estate market and her high level of professionalism.

We were making a big move from the Northwest and coming to Winston-Salem, NC sight unseen. Neither one of us had ever been to NC and didn't know much about the area/community/people/food/etc. And to top it all off, we were on a time crunch. Diane made this big move so easy. If she wasn't here I don't believe our move would have been as smooth. From that first phone call with her, I know we had found the right person. She not only took the time to show us the houses we were interested in, she also helped us get to know the community and places to visit as a family. I loved the communication we had...she checked in with me all the time to give me updates or ask for updates and also asked if there is anything that I needed. Even after we moved into our new house she continued to check in with us and provide info on local events and things to do/places to go. SHE IS PURE CLASS! And if we're looking for a new home, she's the first one we'll call.
Diane did a great job selling our home in Winston-Salem! From the moment we started the process, Diane was easy to communicate with and she really worked hard to keep a difficult transaction moving along. There were multiple parties involved in the sale and we were spread out across the country. Diane did a fantastic job keeping all of us informed throughout the process. There were a few bumps in the road, but Diane remained professional and helped us work through everything to get us to closing! We would definitely recommend Diane Roberts to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Winston-Salem area!
Having been in my home for 16+ years raising four children, it was a both a bittersweet and emotional decision to transition to another home. From beginning to end, Diane was there to listen to my wants and needs, guiding me through every step of what could be a 'painful' process!
Not only did I have a quick sale, going under contract in less than two weeks, she worked tirelessly...days, nights, weekends, and even holidays to ensure that I found a new home I was comfortable with. From there, making the impossible possible, Diane, with her network of colleagues, facilitated a single day closing on two properties, within 60 days of listing my home!
Diane is not only a trusted advisor, but a friend. She offers her honest opinion and feedback as a stakeholder in the game, ultimately allowing you to make the best possible decision having both yours and her experience and knowledge.
Thank you Diane for your role in making my life changing event go as seamlessly as it did! I'm sure it wasn't seamless behind the scenes, but you made it look and feel effortless!
~I am thrilled with my decision to work with Diane Roberts to purchase my home. Diane's knowledge of the area and various neighborhoods along with her connections gave me a clear advantage in the home buying process. I credit Diane for helping me make a solid decision to build a home with RS Parker. I was on the verge of building with someone else that offered what I thought was a better deal. She listened to what I wanted but gently guided me to a better decision. Because of Diane, I have my dream home in a FANTASTIC neighborhood. Diane walked with me through EVERY decision from floor planning to financing. I listen to others complain about the difficulty of their building experience. I know, for sure, Diane was the game changer for me. My building and buying experience couldn't have been more positive thanks to Diane!
Diane,This is a thank-you for all your help in getting me settled into my Winston-Salem home.I am sure i said “thank-you” last June when i moved into the house you helped me find but it is only after having lived in Winston-Salem that I fully realize the extent of your help. When we started the process of looking, I gave you a list of features that i thought i needed and a limited financial range. Coming from a very different housing market, i did not realize the limited number of houses available .On the first day we looked, you showed me half a dozen properties that included the one that I am now happily occupying. I rejected all of them.As i look back, I am certain that you knew I would not find another property that would meet my needs as well as this house you showed me the first day. In spite of that, you showed me lots of other houses. Since none of them met all my desired features, you contacted other realtors and continued to investigate MLS listings. We even looked outside the city limits. Finally, i came back to the house i saw on the first day. You did not say “I told you so” but you went over the house room by room to help me envision the changes I could make to customize the house to meet my desires. Twelve months have passed, all the changes have been made and the house now feels like home .I really appreciate your patience and tenacity. I didn’t mean to be a difficult client but , in retrospect, I think i was pretty demanding. You were unfailingly helpful and never let me see any hint of discouragement.Thank you again for your professionalism, expertise and persistence. Those qualities combined with your extensive knowledge of available properties helped me make a decision that has worked well for me. I am happy in my house and the neighborhood suits me (and my dogs) very well.Thank you,Billie Meeks

Diane just helped us purchase a house and the experience couldn't have been any better. She is always fun and full of energy - and she anticipates all parts of the process. She is also a wealth of information regarding who to call for what - so you can get things done and stay on schedule. She is always honest and direct so you know when you're off track. She is highly responsive - got back to us within minutes every time we needed her. We can't say enough good things! And we will definitely call her next time we are buying or selling.
I had a great homebuying experience! Diane Roberts guided me through the process of selling my property and the purchase of my new home. She gave advice and helpful hints that proved to be most beneficial, and gave me referrals to services that continue to help me even after the closing (carpentry, pressure washing, repairs). Diane also helped me better understand the "language" of real estate, took care of initiating and guiding me through the necessary contracts when placing offers and through the closing process. With her assistance, my homebuying experience was seamless.
Selling my dear brother's house in Rural Hall after his passing last year was a real roller coaster ride, but I was so fortunate to have Diane's steadfast and knowledgeable assistance through the process. The house needed a lot of repairs before getting ready to sell. Diane was always with me to support my actions and help with decisions and was always there with informed advice and answers to my questions. I would not have wanted to go through this process with anyone else. She is one energetic and tenacious lady with a ready, willing and pleasant nature. Our daughter and her husband recommended that I call Diane after she was such a help with the selling of their house. I did not know Diane until then. Now, we will always be friends. I've recommended her to several friends since working with her.

Dependable. Committed. Trustworthy. Hard working. These are just a few words that come to mind when I think of Diane Roberts. We first met Diane through our parents and other family members who were fortunate enough to become home owners through her help and guidance. When it came time for us to move to North Carolina, we knew we wanted the same home buying experience that our family members had raved about. So we called Diane. During our home buying experience (that started from 4,500 miles away!), we were treated with respect, and she always made us feel like a priority. She made sure to provide us with up to date notifications that met the specifications we were looking and hoping for, and she stayed in constant communication with us. She made us feel important and cared for, and we knew that she had our best interest at heart. We found our family's dream home in a perfect for us neighborhood, and looking back, we owe it all to Diane. She is THE vessel to provide you with an optimal home buying experience, and I would recommend her (as I already have) to anyone seeking a realtor. Mike and Andrea Conley
