Diane Dawson

  • Diane listed and sold my home

      Diane did an excellent job working with us.

    • Simply the best! If you want someone who is equally knowledgeable, professional, personable, and energetic, you should work with Diane. Her work ethic is incredible. She will put in as much effort when selling a tiny condo as she would a luxury home. Diane goes above and beyond, from help with staging, knowing which upgrades to prioritize, to finding contractors on short notice. That help was important for me because I was trying to sell my condo after already moving out of state. She will always respond promptly on the phone, text, and email. She also has an excellent office team to help with documents and communication. Thanks, Diane!

    • My Fianc and I bought our first home with Diane Dawson. We are so happy with our purchase and her services. We were intimidated with the process of buying a house as we didnt know what needed to be done and where to look. Thanks to Diane who connected us with all right people, our buying process was simple and quick! We had little time to find a home, but she worked hard to find us what we needed. She is very knowledgeable and cares about what your wants and needs when looking for a home. She truly makes you feel like you are her only client.

    • Diane Dawson is an outstanding realtor. Her primary focus is to help you find the home you are looking for no matter how long that may take. We worked with Diane for many years and found she always listened to what we wanted and never pressured us. She helped with the purchase of a home as well as the sale of a home. She has an excellent eye for detail and what to look for when you are touring a home. She is on top of all code requirements as well as all the detailed paperwork involved in purchase and sale. She works tirelessly and is always available to answer a call or text in a very timely manner as well as being very flexible. Besides being so professionally competent she has a warm personality making the search for a house or the effort to sell a house a very pleasant experience. HIGHLY recommend Diane whether you are buying or selling!

    • Diane is an amazing realtor! She went above and beyond to make sure that my Moms Home looked absolutely beautiful and ready to sell. She helped us find quality people to make the updates that we needed, and took care of many of the Little things that other realtors wouldnt even have taken the time to do. It was her personal touch and her caring heart that made this experience so successful. She will do whatever it takes to help you get your home sold or find you the perfect home. I would never use another realtor in that area because she is the best!

      - Jennifer Kull
    • Diane knows the area very well and is great at finding potential houses and identifying the pros and cons of each place. Really appreciated her expertise, knowledge, and dedication to finding a good home for me!

      - Jacqueline Erens
    • I can't say enough about the job Diane did selling our house. We had some special circumstances and she helped us navigate and address seamlessly. She was so optimistic and energetic, it immensely reduced the normal stress of the selling process. Among realtors we've worked with in the past, she was most organized and had best plan to execute. We were able to sell in less than 2 weeks. Absolutely recommend!

    • Diane was UNBELIEVABLELY AMAZING!!! From the second I met her, she worked so hard to help me get the perfect home for my boys and I. She was so kind and so helpful. She paired me up with a perfect lender and just went above and beyond everything I expected out of a realtor. She believed in me and worked very hard to help me out. I'm a single parent of two boys. No one ever had as much faith in me as she did. She's more than a realtor, she's a lifelong friends. I'm blessed to have met her and anyone that works with her will be very happy. Thank you Diane!!! You're my angel.

    • Diane was extremely helpful in both selling our old house and in finding our new home. She was very knowledgeable and had a lot of local connections that helped everything go smoothly. She was also always very enthusiastic and worked hard to get us everything we wanted. Without a doubt, she is the best real estate agent we have personally worked with.

    • Diane Dawson is an outstanding real estate agent. She is highly knowledgeable about the real estate market in Champaign County. Dianes approach is a winning combination of professionalism, cordiality, and good humor. She is a great communicator and responds quickly to questions and concerns. Diane is savvy about how to present a property, and does so without costly expenses. All in all, it has been a great experience working with Diane as both a buyer and seller. I recommend Diane to anyone who wants a smart, competent and personable real estate agent!

    • Did a GREAT job marketing my place and helping manage the sale process while I lived in another state. House sold in 3 days, would recommend in a heartbeat.

      - Gregory Riffel ~ 10/24/2018
    • Diane was wonderful! she sold our house before it even hit the market. She also negotiated and got our new home the first day it went on the market when their were multiple offers on the table. She has many connections of people that can do many things electrical, construction etc she does alot business with them and they come immediately if needed which helps in negotiations for it to be a win for both the seller & the buyer. She got us our dream home & we are very thankful to Diane!

      - jjbbstewart ~ 12/01/2018
    • Diane is absolutely awesome. She is much more than a realtor. She is very skilled in staging, design upgrades, new color schemes, connecting with contractors, and more. After Diane assisted with my home, the film crew from "My Lottery Dream Home" on hgtv flew out from Miami to film the home. Diane took this 70s home from mildly unattractive to a beautifully upgraded stylish showcase. She is a one stop shop from start to finish...I vote her #1 in Illinois.

      - craigehoover3 ~ 12/02/2018
    • I have used Diane Dawson several times, and every time she is even more amazing, She is the true definition of a professional , She goes above and beyond the call of duty, Answers her phone anytime of day , And always has a positive and very upbeat attitude.

      - jeanette walski ~ 02/05/2019
    • I highly recommend Diane! She is quick to respond and always provided detailed input to my concerns and questions. The property I sold was nice, however, there were some improvements which were needed to help sell it and to get top dollar. She provided very good input along with reliable / reasonable resources to help achieve our goals. She did an amazing job in staging the property. The house sold within 5 days after being posted on the market. It sold so quick we cancelled the open house. I will be using her again on my next sale and or buy.

Great realtor, & even better person! Diane was responsive to our questions, had a great working knowledge of trends, & coordinated the process very well.

    • Diane worked tirelessly to help us find and negotiate for the right home! We are new homebuyers, and she had everything in mind and was an amazing teacher. She really took the time to educate us and i would not have felt as comfortable with any other realtor. She was also respectful of us as a queer couple. She respected my pronouns.

      - riverbrown91 ~ 07/06/2019

    • My wife and I first met this beautiful person back in 2012. We really weren't in the position to buy a home at the time, but we were working on our dream of one day owning our own home. I can't recall exactly how we met Diane but I do remember if was following speaking to several Realtors previously who told me that if I did not have an approval letter in hand that they would not waste their time showing me any homes and abruptly hung up the phone on me. But let me tell yo about this wonderful, kind and caring woman named Diane Dawson; she knew first hand that we were not in a position to purchase a home at the moment but she went out of her way to show us different homes, and together we found the homes that we didn't like as well as the homes that we did like and also fit our budget. WE were out in the rain and in a foot of snow looking at homes and the one thing that Diane always told us was that we would get there, not "you will get there" but that we would get there and she made it feel that we were on this home buying journey together, she knew exactly what we were looking for and when she came across this home she called us and told us that we would love it and we did, we closed on this home on November 20, 2019 thank you Diane we love you and for anyone who is just starting out on their home buying journey whether you have questions and just looking or just dreaming of owning your own home then Diane Dawson is the person that you will most definitely want to speak to. Along this journey we have progressed past the point of client and Realtor, we consider Diane not only to be a very special friend but also a part of our family.

      - mrsec46 ~ 11/24/2019
    • We can highly recommend Diane Dawson for both purchasing a house as well as selling a house as she has been our realtor for both experiences. When looking for a home she is extremely helpful in helping her clients decide what they are looking for and the location they prefer. Once she and the client have determined these two parameters she will work tirelessly to find the right house. She is very knowledgeable about structural, and HVAC features as well as aesthetics, as well as having a keen vision for what features can easily be changed in a house to meet ones' desired needs. She has a very warm, relaxing personality helping reduce the stresses involved in home purchase and sale. With her years of experience in sales she knows all the legal requirements involved in home sale and purchase again making this worry free for the client. 5 star rating for Diane for sure!

      - biodee08 ~ 07/06/2020
    • I have sold three homes with Diane and bought one, my fiance bought one and sold one. There is absolutely no one to compare to her, the hardest working realtor anywhere. She even interviewed realtors for us where we moved.

      - Skip Binch ~ Jun 07, 2020
    • I have purchased two homes from Diane in the last two years, and sold a home with her!! She is most excellent to work with, full of knowledge, ideas, and guidance on both selling and buying of the homes. She responds to my emails and texts in a timely manner, and knew the answers to all of my crazy questions! I wouldn't work with anyone else - Diane is the absolute best in the business.

    • Diane is a great Realtor, I highly recommend her for your real estate needs!

      - Hanley Guy
    • Diane is the very best at helping you get your house fixed up so it sells quickly. We had another realtor list our house that didn't do anything except put a sign in the yard. We had very few showings, no feedback or offers. Diane was referred to us from a coworker. And I am so grateful for that! She is a very hard worker and knows her business well. Diane identified the reasons that our house failed to sell. There were so many other houses listed in our area that also had suffered long market time. So Diane helped us get trusted, affordable contractors, and great deals on materials to make changes. After that, she even staged the house, and we could not believe the before and after pics! It didn't even look like the same home! Do yourself a big favor and call Diane first. You will be amazed with her talents and delighted with the results!
