Diane is the consummate professional. She knows the market, knows the players, and has great relationships with other brokers and the community. Her communication is timely and clear. You can 100% rely on her advice. I will absolutely engage her as my broker in the future.”

“Diane is truly an exceptional real estate professional. She was accessible and responsive at all hours of the day/night and weekends. She oversaw the property inspection and gave great recommendations regarding needed corrective actions, overseeing the work, as well. She appropriately pushed the  sales contract and escrow process along, keeping all sides to the original milestones schedule/timetable. Diane also provided wonderful assistance after the close of escrow, providing various recommendations for flooring contractors, new appliance purchases and assorted local services. I would highly recommend Diane to anyone considering a real estate transaction, buying or selling.”

“Diane is a dedicated and thorough professional.  She not only advised us with respect to every aspect of the sale of our second home in Pacific Grove, but went above and beyond in taking care of details we were unable to attend to since we live in the San Francisco area.  She is also a delight to  work with -- unfailingly upbeat and positive, and a true expert in the local area.  We can't recommend her highly enough”

“It is with considerable pleasure that I write concerning our experience with Ms. Diane Hardcastle. With Diane's tireless assistance, we recently purchased a house in Carmel Valley (12288 Saddle Road). At our age, buying/selling a home is not a new experience. When we moved from the Washington, D.C. area to San Jose in 2007 we had very bad experience with our Bay Area realtor. Diane, on the other hand, has all the qualities potential home-buyers desire: professionalism, tolerance, patience, personal warmth, knowledge of the area and (mostly importantly) integrity. You are fortunate to have such a dedicated, capable associate. We will recommend your firm and Diane to others who may be moving to Monterey County.”

“Now that my Unit #74 is sold I would like to thank all of you for the friendship and many courtesies extended to me while 1 lived among you. The GLEN is a very special place. The Association does a great job of maintaining the buik ings and the grounds. My Unit was on the market for only a week until an offer was made and accepted. A great deal of credit is due to my Realtor, Diane Hardcastle, who owns and lives in the Glen. 1 have bought and sold a number of houses over my lifetime but never have 1 worked with a Realtor who did so much to make my unit so attractive for potential buyers. She planted flowers on the patio, caulked an area in a bathroom and decorated the bathrooms with towels and knick-knacks, something I would not have thought to do. She looked out for my interest with the volume of paperwork while 1 was recovering from major surgery. A seller could not ask for better cooperation and support. The gods were with me when I chose her to market my condo.”

We would like to bring to your attention the stellar performance of Diane Hardcastle while she was our realtor for a sale and a #1031 purchase over the past several months in Pacific Grove and Monterey. She helped to make the sale of a difficult property smooth and efficient while never losing her smile. She kept us well informed with the progress of each step in the process. Diane's uplifting persona never dropped, and she kept the communications going with the buyers' agent during some trying times. She has worked so hard and diligently, saving several mix-ups because of being on top of the details. We could not think of a better person to work with and she makes a wonderful asset to your company. We thank you so much for being able to work with her! She also has gone through the purchase of a #1031 property, driving us all over the peninsula many places and times, until we had a good feel for the area. She made many trips to our house to have papers signed, so that we were spared having to drive somewhere. Diane always puts her clients first as was most evident in our dealings with her over the past two transactions. We would recommend Diane without reservations to anyone; they would be in the best of hands. We would gladly talk with any prospective client.

I am a widow and a senior citizen, and just sold my condo at Glen Lake Drive in Pacific Grove. I would be very remiss if I didn't tell you about Diane, my Realtor.  She tool care of everything.  She worked many long hours, and sold my condo in a short time. I would recommend her to everyone that wants to sell their home, and I am sure you would be completely satisfied with her work, and may I add, especially senior citizens. Thank you Diane.



Your recent letter, with reference to our purchase of a property in Pebble Beach, asked for comments on your firm's handling of this transaction. I am delighted to report that the purchase would never have been completed if not for the professionalism and very diligent work of my representative, Diane Hardcastle. The seller wanted a substantially higher price than was finally paid and, although my being based in Los Angeles complicated the process, Diane successfully handled all of our negotiations and communications by telephone and fax. Diane also made herself totally available for crucial inspections that I could not handle in person, and went out of her way in performing a few "favors" to make the house ready for us. It was a pleasure doing business with Diane and your fine company and, should there be an opportunity in the future, I would definitely do business with her again. Diane was wonderful and did a great job for us from start to finish!



Diane Hardcastle has been my realtor for about one year, during which time I found her to be extremely competent and helpful in a dynamic and compassionate manner. She kept me informed of listings within my chosen area and price range, and went the extra distance to research all the material I had questions on and would often get right back to me within that day. I found this to be quite refreshing as the other eight realtors I have dealt with could not come close to meeting Diane's standards of efficiency and dedication. Diane stands out among the rest in her industry! Her loyalty and enthusiasm coupled with her earnest drive and concerns within the real estate profession have made it a pleasure to do business with her. I would be happy to answer any questions regarding her performance regarding my house search. I wholeheartedly recommend Diane Hardcastle as an excellent realtor!
