My Client Reviews
My husband and I were given Diane's name by the realtor who would end up being the person to sell our home in Central CA. When we called to say we wanted her to show us some properties in Lake Wildwood and Alta Sierra she immediately opened up her schedule to be available to us each day we would be here. She understood that we weren't ready to buy property at that time and likely wouldn't even put our home on the market for another 6 months or more. She was most helpful giving us a general orientation to the area as well as showing us some specific homes on the market at the time. That gave us an idea of what type of home we might be able to find in the price range we were expecting to look for when we were ready to sell our home in Central CA. From that point on she kept in touch with us by phone, letter and email so that she could better understand our needs and desires as well as update us on availability of homes in our desired areas.. She put us on an automatic online list to receive current listings in our price range each week. She was always available to answer questions which helped us feel more comfortable as we considered the timing and other details of this big move. I had lived in the same home for 37 years so consideration of a move was quite emotional although necessary for my husband and I to meet our financial goals in retirement. Diane was sensitive to our situation and never tried to push us into making a decision before we were ready to. When our home sold with a 30 day escrow just 3 days after going on the market we were concerned we might not find anything we liked within that 30 day time frame and immediately drove up here to have Diane show us what was available at that time in our price range. We even had her explain what might be our options if we didn't find a home we liked and needed to rent until we did. She showed us the homes that were available at that time and took us to a local lender where we were able to complete the paperwork for preapproval of a loan. She knew that would make both us and a seller more comfortable with any bid we might make when we found "the right" house. We were disappointed not to find a home that we liked and were trying to accept the fact that we likely would have to go home the next day and be ready to find a rental home for a few months until we found a house that met our needs. Diane never gave up and had contacted some fellow realtors earlier that day to see if they had any other listings coming on the market in the near future that she could show us. At the end of that day she connected with a realtor from another real estate company that had a home that was going to go onto multiple listing the next week. When we drove by that house and saw the outside of it we were hopeful that it might be the perfect house for us if it was as nice on the inside as it was on the outside. Diane arranged for us to see the inside of the house the next day and we LOVED IT and immediately knew it was the right house for us. She took us back to her office and then to the loan officer so we could do the paperwork necessary to put in an offer. Diane made sure everything was in order and our offer was accepted that same day! Each step of the way, she helped us with the remaining details of the purchase of our wonderful new home. Most of the time we were back in Central CA taking care of the details of the sale of our home there and preparing for our move up to LWW . We depended on Diane to keep everything going smoothly up here. She did a fantastic job handling things and communicating with us. She was able to decrease the anxiety of a stressful and yet exciting time in our lives! My husband and I highly recommend Diane Spooner to anyone considering buying or selling a home up here in Nevada County. We are so blessed to have had her as our realtor and now as a new friend as well. Janie J.
