Diane Freeman - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

We are so pleased that we chose Diane Freeman of Baird & Warner to list our condo - we cannot say enough good things about the whole experience.

  Diane is a very hard worker and totally aware of market trends.  She has great insight into the nuances that determine the value of a condo – from its particular features to the specific neighborhood.  Her up-to-date information about comparable condo sales enabled her to recommend the perfect price for our condo which sold three days after hitting the MLS; and her skill helped us quickly negotiate the multiple offers we happily received. Finally, Diane not only paid personal attention to all the important aspects, such as staging, pictures and brochure to promote the condo, but she went beyond what one might expect from an agent.  This was especially important for us because after preparing the condo for sale, we left Chicago and Diane was a great help in taking care of details that we had missed.  Her complete availability 24/7, and speedy response to every question, was especially important because we were living in California at the time.  From the beginning of the process to the day of closing, she was not only a great source of advice but a delight to work with and we give her our strongest recommendation.

I've worked with Diane on two separate occasions over the past few years and recently commented to a friend that she provides "Ritz Carlton service w/ FedEx delivery.

" Emails, texts and phone calls returned quickly. If not anticipated and addressed before we thought of them, Diane listened intently to our wants, needs, questions and the occasional emotional outburst with warmth then answered or alleviated each quickly with grace and the utmost professionalism.

I cannot tell you how thrilled and lucky I was to have found you.

I have dealt with many agents in many parts of the country in my corporate and personal moves and never have I been more pleased with the results achieved by my association with you. Diane, when two of my friends recommended you, I was somewhat reluctant but they told a great story. How you sold their apartment in less than a week and got top dollar for them. When I saw the marketing brochure you had developed, I was extremely impressed with the quality of the photos and the professionalism of the final product. I asked for and got sound advice from you in staging my property at minimal expense to me. Diane, your aggressive networking and marketing skills really paid off. Your close attention to detail and follow up ensures that nothing and I mean nothing ever falls through the cracks. Your business sense, professionalism, and integrity are much admired by me as a person and especially as your client. Working with you has been an extreme pleasure for me.

Dear Diane, We wanted to express our thanks for helping us find our new condo in Chicago!

As you know, we had been using another realtor for several weeks. We’d been shown several condos for sale, but usually only after we found them ourselves on realty websites. With a large breed dog, the desire to have an in-unit washer and dryer, and a limited search area (Gold Coast neighborhood), we knew we needed to find a realtor that was proactive, someone who was able to find a condo before it hit the market, and who would be tenacious in finding our condo. Enter Diane Freeman! She identified a handful of potential buildings. She proactively reached out to owners in the tier we wanted, in a building we were interested in. In less than two weeks, a potential seller came forward, and we were able to quickly close the deal. Diane managed every aspect of the sale, from our initial viewing of the condo, to the final closing. She worked daily with every person involved in the purchase of our condo to ensure the sale went smoothly. Thanks, Diane. You made our return to Chicago and the purchase of our new condo a pleasurable experience!   Best regards,

My hat is off to Diane for the service she has provided my family and me for the past several years.

Diane first represented my father, selling a condo at a price that other brokers thought was delusional. But Diane was able to work closely with my father (no easy feat) and vigorously and persistently market his real estate. In the ensuings year, Diane has brokered the sale of 5 houses and condos in the Chicago area for me. These were not easy sales. The properties had been rented and required maintenance and updating. Since I live overseas, Diane took it upon herself to organize and supervise the work necessary to put these on the market, obtaining above listing price offers on several occasions and selling other units in a very tough, competitive markets. I have worked with many brokers over the years and Diane has, by far, provided superlative service. I never had to second guess her advice and had complete confidence in her ability to work with agents, buyers, contractors, condo associations (ugh!) lawyers and escrow agents and to manage the entire process from listing, to property improvements to sale and closing. A prospective client could not be in better hands.
