Diana is incredibly knowledgeable about Visalia area real estate and is a great advocate for her clients. She is reliable and always available to answer questions. She strives to understand exactly what her clients are looking for and puts a lot of thought into helping her clients find the perfect house.

She has a wonderful combination of professionalism, humor, and warmth; which makes house shopping and buying feel stress-free. I have used her to sell our old house and to buy a new house. We would happily recommend her to anyone buying or selling in Visalia! Diana put up with a lot, and I mean A LOT of phone calls, emails and texts from me over the time that I signed her as my agent. I was looking for a home that would accommodate my elderly parents, my sister, brother-in-law and their adult daughter; all of this with my being out of state! Everyone had different ideas, needs and wants; so to say we were high maintenance was an understatement! And yet, Diana was ever eager to help without making us feel rushed or that we were taking up too much of her time. I never sensed any type of pressure to “hurry up and buy”—because she really is on your side! The fact that she still has a full head of lovely dark hair is a miracle! Diana was such a blessing to our home buying process. When she met with me, she truly listened to what our needs were in both the selling and buying of a home. In selling our home, she used an innovative 3-D program, along with beautiful pictures that I believe truly enhanced the look of our home. Also, Diana didn’t just list the house and move on to another seller’s needs, she actively marketed the home. When buying a home, she researched homes daily and inquired about the pro/cons of each house so that she could better understand our needs and wants. Once we found the house we loved, Diana was able to negotiate a price that was within our budget. She then helped us find detailed house inspectors and termite inspectors, and much more. Even after we closed and moved into the house, she continues to touch base to see how all is going and if there is anything we need. There are many more ways that I could name, given time and space, of how Diana went above and beyond for us. I know that there are many good realtors in the Visalia area, BUT if you really want someone who is knowledgeable, trustworthy, hard-working, and has your best interest at heart, you will call Diana Benson. I would recommend her to anyone who is selling a home, or is looking for that special place to call home.
