Rob Aarnes – Carlsbad, CA

It is with pleasure and gratitude that I share my experience with Diana Rodrigo in the purchase then listing and sale of our home in North County San Diego. Both my wife and I have bought and sold a number of houses over the past 15 years but have never before encountered such a level of professionalism, attention-to-detail and empathy; empathy being such a rare find in the real estate community these days. From the first moment we met with Diana, she displayed genuine concern for our specific needs and not once did she ask us to compromise on those needs in order to speed up or close the sale. Instead, she worked tirelessly to find and present us with only the “right” purchase options. Once we found a home, she negotiated with precision and tenacity as if we were doing it ourselves. In the end, I believe we received the best possible deal due explicitly to her tactful and steadfast efforts. When it came time to sell our house, our experience with Diana was equally as impressive. It was an emotional time for our family as we were moving from San Diego to New York and had mixed feelings about the transition to the East Coast. Once again, Diana amazed. She first took the time to understand what we were going through as a family so she would be best prepared to support us. She worked hard to understand the specific timelines and complex requirements of our corporate relocation program and then used all available efforts to properly market and list the home. As a result, we sold our home in 24 hours due once again to Diana’s negotiation tactics and extreme due diligence. All of the above interactions, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a high degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace. It is for these reasons that both my wife and I give Diana Rodrigo our highest recommendation as a residential real estate specialist.
