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!

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.
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 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 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!

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
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
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.
My husband and I are so thankful we found Diane Roberts, and we would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a realtor. When we learned we were moving to NC last year, we were introduced to Diane by from some friends who had raved about her. Diane worked tirelessly for over a year for us until we found the perfect home. She is extremely knowledgeable, hardworking, responsive, and patient. She is very trustworthy and seemed to “look out for us” throughout the entire process (e.g., by pointing out a house’s shortcomings that we didn’t notice, taking plenty of extra time to educate us about the market, and even helping us settle into our new town in many thoughtful ways). We couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience with Diane!C Bennett
David and Kathryn
Diane was our agent when we recently sold one home and bought another, and we would highly recommend her because of her expertise in all stages of the process and because of her excellent communication skills. From getting our house ready to sell and completing all the required paperwork, to negotiating and closing, Diane worked efficiently and attentively on every aspect of the process and kept us updated all along the way. When we bought our new home, we would not have accomplished all the details of making our offer, having the house inspected and repaired, and navigating all the financial details along the way without Diane. She anticipated all potential delays and communicated tirelessly with all parties involved to achieve a successful closing. Kathryn and David
Stuart and Erin
Diane worked tirelessly with us to prepare and sell our house. We were not living locally and the house needed a lot of work after we evicted our renters. Diane was so incredibly helpful with arranging contractors, getting quotes, checking on the progress and moving us quickly towards a successful sale. With her help and advice, we were able to sell our house for $1000s more than we expected in record time! I would highly recommend working with her-- she is dedicated, immediately responsive, professional and knows exactly what to do to sell a home.Thanks Diane! We mean every word!-Stuart and Erin
Annette R Helsabeck
I was very happy with all aspects of my real estate agent, Diane. Being a first time home owner, she kept me informed of the processes in a timely manner, she cleared up the things I didn't understand, helped me with my decisions when asked, and all with expertise, clarity, and knowledge AND without being pushy.

Purchasing or selling a home is a monumental feat. Finding a realtor that you trust will put your needs first can be a challenge. We have had the pleasure to work with Diane Roberts on both the purchasing and selling of houses. In fact, our entire family has used Diane in the buying and selling process over the years! She is friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and puts your interests first. She communicates with her clients in an efficient and timely manner and provides a streamlined process from start to finish. If you want to feel secure, informed, and cared for during the buying or selling process, choose Diane Roberts!Mike and Andrea Conley

Diane is not just our realtor, but we consider her a friend. She was welcoming from the moment we began our home search in Winston-Salem. She knows the area and the builders, which is a huge asset. Diane is so business savvy, and when we moved away, we knew Diane again was the only option for us. She has a great network of handymen, cleaners, and repairmen. We quickly sold our house although Diane had informed us when we bought and when we sold that things move a little more slowly in our area. We were prepared for selling to take over a year because we had seen houses in our neighborhood sitting on the market and switching realty companies. She gave us great advice and got us two offers only a few weeks after listing. We sold for list price, and we couldn’t be more stratified with our experience.Shannon
Diane was fantastic to work with, she was extremely professional and responsive throughout the entire process of selling our home. She was able to locate a buyer quickly and went above and beyond to get everything done for a quick close. Diane communicated extremely well with us about how everything was progressing, which was relieving since we were in another city full time. I would highly recommend Diane to anyone, she has a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience buying and selling homes in Winston-Salem and I will be giving her a call once we plan to move back!Joseph Doub
We went into this process two years ago. We didn't know what we wanted. Diane was patient and kind and helped us find the house of our dreams at the most unexpected time. The best part is we have a friend for life!!!!!!!!!!!! Diane is one of a kind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Utilizing Allen Tate, specifically realtor Diane Roberts, was an amazing experience. Communication was always timely and professional, and Diane would go out of her way to make sure we were having our needs met. We will 100% be utilizing her in the future when it comes time for us to look for a future home!
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.
