Diana did an excellent job of listing, interviewing, screening perspective interested buyers.

She really knows her job separating the wheat from the shaft. I recommended her services to a friend of mine needing to sell his condo. Se also did a yeoman's job on his sale/ transaction. 5 stars all the way.

Hi Everyone, It is a pleasure to share my experience with Diana Fairbanks because I hope you give her a call.

First, Diana offered us very sound and reasonable advice about the necessary improvements we needed prior to achieving the offer we wanted. It is so important to work with a realtor that knows the difference between what will help the sale and what will not in the current market. After doing what Diana suggested, our first showing gained several offers above the selling price. Our home was sold quickly and efficiently in less than 4 weeks. Said and done! Diana is a reliable, straight forward professional that knows her stuff and can be trusted to help you and your family make your dreams come true.

Hi Diana, We would luv to move.

Unfortunately the interest rates are to high and also the association fees. The town house in Maddison Lakes was just perfect including the assoc Fred. Please keep us updated. Thank you again, Nancy

I have used Diana for 4 properties (both buying and selling) over the last 10 years.

The first property I bought I gave Diana my wish list. I wasn’t hopeful that we’d be able to accomplish it. I remember saying, “I think it may be impossible to find what we’re looking for, especially at our price point.” Diana replied, “it won’t be impossible… it will just be a challenge.” After 4 days of viewing properties we found the one that checked everything off the list. During that time we viewed a few properties where we opened the door, and before we even toured the entire house we looked at each other, nodded, and she asked, “ready to go to the next one?” That is Diana: Professional, to the point, and trustworthy. From that point on, knowing she had my interests in mind rather than up sell me or use one of the many listings she had, I knew she was the realtor for me (and any of my friends/family). I have referred her to my mother, multiple friends, and would refer her to anyone reading this looking to either buy or sell.

Diana and her team exceeded our expectations!

Her pricing was spot-on; her advice regarding improvements to best position the property for sale was reasonable and cost-effective; her recommendation for which offer to accept was insightful; and her communication through our remote closing was efficient and helpful. From start to finish Diana handled each step beautifully, and we couldn’t be more pleased with our selling experience and results!

Traci Richmond

Diana epitomizes everything I could hope for in a real estate professional - from in-depth knowledge on real estate and contracts, to knowing how to deal with everyone at the different levels of the transaction, she is friendly while still being professional, and will go to bat in ways I was unaware existed.

Diana is definitely someone you want on your team. Her follow up and follow through is fantastic, and she made the entire process of selling my condo very easy. I wish I’d known her when I had sold my homes in the past.

Jennifer Brown

Diana assisted me with an estate sale of property in Florida.

Being Canadian, it was reassuring to have Diana in our corner, looking after our best interest. She understood the various legal elements and whatever she didn’t know, she and her team did the research necessary. In the end, the transaction was very smooth and stress-free. I would highly recommend Diana for all of your real estate needs whether you live in the US or out of state like I do.

Darryl Castellano

I absolutely would recommend Diana for her professionalism and knowledge.

A realtor you can trust and count on for sure.

We have had the pleasure of working with Diana several times over the last 12 years.

We have consistently been impressed with her knowledge, advice and professionalism. Whether you are a first time buyer or repeat investor we would recommend her without any reluctance nor hesitation.

Top notch realtor.

Very knowledgeable. Quick to respond. Able to make difficult deals go through. Diana has been the realtor for our family business for many years.

Kim Levin

With a short timeline, I came to Florida from out of state to clear out the contents of my mother’s house, and prepare it to put on the market.

It was stressful, to say the least. I was given Diana’s name before arriving, and from the very beginning she was easy to communicate with, quick to respond to my many questions, with excellent contacts and suggestions as I worked on the house. This was a dated (but clean) fixer upper, but thanks to Diana’s pricing strategy, excellent listing details and photographs, the house received an offer within one week, and we were able to close one month later. During that month, I was back at home and Diana frequently updated us on details, helped us navigate a few issues with the closing, and always made sure that my mother’s best interests were served by her actions. She has my family’s highest recommendation!

Carol Bayless

Diana is the ultimate realtor.

She cares deeply for her clients and believe in giving them 100% of her time and service. I have.had the opportunity to work with Diana on several projects in Broward and know that you will not find a better realtor!

Sherry Rudolph

Diana helped me sell two vacant lots in Florida.

I live in NYC and she was able to do everything for me over the phone and via email. The closing was done virtually as well. Diana is professional, reliable, prompt, and energetic! She was so lovely to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling!

Amy H.

Diana was great to work with, a true professional.

Enjoyed working with her. She truly understands her clients and is willing to go a step beyond to meet our needs. Uncompromising integrity. She made the home buying experience a pleasure.

As I considered the sale of my Lakeside respite, I utilized a "For Sale by Owner" option to test the waters.

I was inundated with misleading calls from agents. One day, a voice simply said, "Hi, I'm Diana Fairbanks of Balistreri Realty and would like to tell you about myself...". She did not misrepresent the call; presented with impeccable stats and I retained her instantly! I am so grateful that I was prepared for a sale because it was completed in four days! Diana assisted with every aspect; even through the COVID issues. I HIGHLY recommend her services; and, intend to use her the next time!

Barbara D.

trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous kind and cheerful.

Diana could be a boy-scout if she wanted to be. excellent experience with her , she made selling our place a joy, and was instrumental in finding our new place. After hearing all the horror stories about selling a home, I have to say that I only experienced efficiency and hands-on guidance, any time I had a question she was there with an answer, Once or twice I texted her questions well after normal business hours, not expecting an answer till the next day, and got back quick answers. I would not hesitate to recommend Diana and her crew to friends and family alike. if you want a painless sale and/or purchase it doesn't get any better than this...P.S. I teach customer service

"By far the best realtor I’ve worked with. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Recommended I list my house for $20,000 more than the previous realtor wanted to list it for and said she’d have it sold in 30 days. She sold it the FIRST day with multiple offers and we closed in 30 days. Makes me sick to think of the money I would have lost out on had I gone with the other agent. I’m so thankful to Diane for her market knowledge and expertise."

"Diana represented us in a most professional manner. From our first meeting with her we were confident in her ability to sell our home. She crafted the listing that resulted in 15 families viewing our home in one day and multiple offers above asking price. Everything about the process with Diana was extremely positive."

"I can't recommend Diana Fairbanks highly enough! What a pleasure it was to have her represent me and my husband. She's very polished and easy to work with. She quickly responds to any questions you might have and remedies any issues that come up during the real estate negotiation process through closing. She was fantastic and honestly I don't think we would have gotten our purchase to the finish line without her expertise and hard work."

"With Diana’s representation we recently purchased a home in Fort Lauderdale. Diana is knowledgeable in all fronts: the process, neighborhoods, the market and more importantly, she listens and knows exactly what home is perfect for you. We did virtual tours and in person tours of various homes and Diana has a very critical and objective eye to assess a home and we learned a great deal about what to be aware of prior to considering buying a home. Diana is extremely supportive realtor. She shared with us a high caliber professional network that included: mortgage company, title company, inspectors, plumbers, painters, etc. We highly recommend Diana to be your realtor in Fort Lauderdale."
