Joan and Diane delivered! No real estate transaction is without complications, but Diane Wilson helped us navigate all the ups and downs, providing emotional support along the way, and a few nudges when needed. She seemed to somehow be available 24/7 and was responsive throughout the entire process. She connected us to the architect and contractor that worked on our house, as well as several other service providers. When the process was over, we missed our constant communications! Diane has continued to keep an eye on our property and is always willing to provide guidance when we ask for help or recommendations. I would definitely recommend Diane and Joan to others looking for real estate in the area.

Highest praise for Joan and Diane. They get the job done with speed and accuracy. They know the market and the community, they are highly skilled at describing and pricing properties, and they have an uncanny knack for matching buyers and sellers. In our most recent transaction, they presented us with a contract offer within hours of listing, and we closed escrow 21 days later.

We were very impressed with Joan for her knowledge, expertise and overall professionalism when it came to purchasing our home in Sea Ranch. Joan not only got our offer in quickly while navigating a hot market, but was always keeping our interest in mind while doing so. Throughout the escrow process, Joan was always very responsive keeping us in the loop day-to-day on next steps in regards inspections, escrow timelines, and communication between us the the seller and seller's agent which we appreciated tremendously. Since we live outside the area, Joan always made herself available to us when needed, and was very helpful with recommendations of local resources. We would highly recommend Joan to anyone needing a savvy, straightforward and always kind real estate agent.

Diane Wilson is an absolute pleasure to work with. Professional and personable - the perfect combination in real estate. While giving me a tour of the region - which she knows really well - she parsed my needs and priorities, and then led me to what would become my new home. She's highly intelligent, both practical and sensible in her assessments, and warmly attentive. She's a sure-footed guide and I'm happy to recommend her

We recently concluded our third real estate deal through Joan and Diane - buying a house and a lot and selling a house. Each time the process was professionally handled from start to finish by these two local experts and we would not hesitate to recommend them to buyers and sellers in the Mendonoma Coast area.

These two ladies are extraordinary! We are now on our fourth transaction with them, including multiple homes, and we are extremely pleased with their service and expertise! They are definitely the best realtors in the area. You don't need to look elsewhere.

After buying and selling a house in 4 states, including California, we were initially reluctant to buy a vacation home at Sea Ranch. But we had fallen in love with the area and decided to talk with a realtor. Lucky for us we selected Diane and Joan! They are smart and skilled professionals that know Sea Ranch real estate well. And they are highly alert to the human psyche involved with such a large and emotional purchase. Diane immediately found the perfect house for us, but negotiations were tricky. A previous offer had fallen through - with more offers on the way, we had to move quickly. They handled the mountain of required paperwork with ease, developed an offer that made us unique, secured a loan officer that pre-qualified us, and wrote a heart-felt letter to the seller that represented us so well - all in one weekend!! And they continued this amazing customer service throughout the escrow period, handling paperwork with us electronically since we lived outside of the area. Diane's background in psychology and Joan's amazing ability to connect with people make this team unbeatable. My husband and I have worked with a lot of realtors, but these two are extraordinary; they actually made buying a house in CA easy - something we previously thought impossible! The best part is....we love this house so much, think Sea Ranch is heaven on earth, and are so grateful to have made this leap. Our tip for others - get this good, competent team on your side!

We have worked with Joan and Diane for over 5 years now. They helped us during our initial interest in the northern California coast; showing us homes in many different settings and communities. We bought our first home with Joan and Diane about 4 years ago while we were still living in Minnesota! It was basically a vacation home in which we could spend longer and longer periods as we eased into retirement. We moved to CA full time one year ago and knew we would be looking for a larger, full time home. Once again, Joan and Diane were our go to team for both buying our new home and selling our vacation home. Our vacation home was sold in just over 2 months and we were very pleased with the sale from start to finish. During the purchase of our new home, Diane and Joan worked with the listing agent and the seller and negotiated an excellent purchase price for our lovely new home. During all transactions the ladies were professional, knowledgeable, timely with information and documentation and made the experience a pleasure instead of a chore. One additional bonus in working with Joan and Diane is the team they have assembled to facilitate their real estate transactions; a true testament to their mastery of their trade.
