Past Client Testimonials

 ---"Diane was great to work with! Very knowledgable about home repairs to consider when looking at properties. She responded promptly to emails and worked diligently with all requests. "      Samatha & Dustin U.  Lindenhurst, Il

"I had contacted C21 Affiliated by phone in response to a property listed for sale and left a message. Diane Kuhfuss called me back and I was immediately impressed by her degree of professionalism. She is very knowledgeable and was very patient as I looked at a lot of properties. She was always available and communicated in a timely manner. She looked out for my interests during negotiations. Diane is the perfect balance of professionalism and kindness. Diane is not aware of this, but I used to sell real estate back in the 1980's and I highly recommend her!                                              Tammy P. Antioch, Il

---"I chose to work with Diane because of recommendations from her previous clients. I did my research and had told Diane that I wanted to do this before signing a contract with her. I took my time researching and making calls, Diane followed up with me and was very patient. 

When we met her for the first time, she was very personable and took the time to answer our questions. She didn't push us to do anything and when we asked her for her advice, she provided us with facts and data to help us make educated and confident decision (for example, what to list the house for).

She didn't waste anytime. Once we signed the contract with her she was very efficient and worked within our timeline. We had a constant flow of people looking at our house and she gave us ample notice before a private showing. Once she posted our house for sale online, we accepted a great offer on our house 3 weeks later. She also helped us through the next steps all the way till closing and stayed in touch the whole time. She was always accessible and answered questions promptly.

I enjoyed how professional and approachable she was. I have told my family and friends about her and in fact in the future, if we ever need to work with another agent, I wouldn't go with anyone else. Diane will be who we call again."     Mark & Thiri H. Grayslake, Il
