Diana’s Clients Say It All:

Diana was our realtor when we were purchasing our very first home. She was recommended by my colleague who spoke highly of her. She is not only an exceptional realtor but also an amazing person. It could have been a very daunting process as we wanted everything possible in a home on a budget.  Diana made it easy. She took us to visit more than sixty homes and didn’t push us into making any decisions until we were ready. She would patiently explain the pros and cons of every house we visited and would impart her extensive knowledge on all things related to real estate. Diana really cares about her clients needs and went out of her way to fulfill our desired checklist. She found us the perfect home for our family. Two years on we still call Diana whenever we have any house related issues and she helps us navigate through it. My wife and I recommend Diana to anyone looking for a great realtor!
~Riz and Sana

Our first home buying experience with the help of Diana was very smooth. We were able to complete the whole process in less than a month. We definitely would recommend her to our friends and family.

David and I went with Diana Kopecky of the Staley Kopecky Distinctive Residential Brokerage firm to help us sell our custom home. My husband David is an architect and had designed and built the house in the late 70”s. After 40 + years and raising two children, Diana took us under her wings and  helped us get through a very emotional and tough transition. She helped us stage our home and was patient as the house did not sell right away since our soft contemporary home needed that special buyer. We did sell in 2016 and Diana held our hands through the whole process. A year later we had Diana help us again in buying our next home. Her expertise in the Dallas Metroplex Real Estate market was such a help to us because we were moving out of our neighborhood. We could not have made all the transitions we did without her help, expertise and guidance. We are grateful. Thank you Diana!

Diana is definitely my realtor for life. With her expertise she found my perfect first house in a great neighborhood when I was still a young single mom and did not have many resources. I felt protected in my decisions as she guided me through the process. When my family grew through marriage,  she helped me sell my first home and buy a new home for my expanding family that kept my new husband’s girls and my son in their same schools. We literally had a choice of a couple of neighborhoods, needing a four bedroom home within a low budget and Diana pulled off yet another miracle. Then as my last child graduated high school and it was time to move closer to work, Diana went above and beyond patiently helping us get the house ready for sell. She assisted with everything from landscaping, painting, and decorating help. She even came over and helped instruct our landscape workers in the rain! Our house never went on the market, the painter that Diana set us up with, actually wanted to buy it prior to it going on the market. Because they were buying as rent house, we were able to lease back until we found a new house to buy. When buying our new house, the market was such that houses were selling within hours. The house we wanted had multiple offers but Diana was able to negotiate so that we actually won the bid. She even helped us at the inspection for every house and walk throughs. I consider Diana a great realtor and friend for life. Thank you, Diana!

Diana found my home and got a 8 foot fence included. It was my first home walked me through the process. I never believed I could own my own home. It was easier than moving.
~Jeremy L.

We first contacted Diana in 2005 when my husband and I first wanted to purchase a home together. She knew all the right questions to ask, all the details from the smallest to the largest to consider, and her knowledge with the the ins and outs of the construction of new homes to homes that had been  built for years was impressive. We were 100% confident in our choice to buy. A little over 10 years after growing out of our first home, there was no question that we were going to give her a call again. She helped us quickly sell our home and search for a new home that would accommodate our larger family; moreover, she was able to assist us with an even better home when our builder’s promises fell through. She was vital to our home purchases and there is no doubt we will use her again when the time arrives.
~Brandon and Julia W.

My husband and I are first time home owners, and that is a HUGE thanks to Diana! She treated us like we were her own family. We had a very hard time finding a home within our loan amount. My husband started a new business so our budget was very small for the housing market. We fought and fought in  this hot market with Diana by our side every step of the way to find a home. We put in multiple offers on houses in the McKinney area where we wanted to live. We just could not compete. She found us a new build neighborhood in Melissa which is very close to McKinney. She made this very stressful time so much easier on us. Even during the walk through on our new home the builder made a comment on how above and beyond she was going with the blue tape marking things on the house that needed to be corrected. Things that I would have never even noticed! We will always use Diana on future home purchases and refer her to everyone we know! She is beyond amazing and I honestly do not think we would be home owners today without her help and connections!
~The Halls

I had the most pleasant experience working with Diana. Our requirements were pretty difficult and were very narrow. Diana still managed to find an awesome home for us. The process of buying a home can be quite overwhelming that too for a first time home buyer (like me). She managed to educate me in the process and ensure the decision i was taking is a good one. Starting from the features of the house, location, price and on a lot over things she was able to assist me and guide me carefully. Due to my narrow selection criteria it took me a while to find my home, Diana was patient all through and helped me find ‘The perfect home’ for us. Her knowledge and experience are huge plus for any home buyer or seller.

They say you should have a realtor for life and i know it will be Diana…
~Sanjay Jupudi

“You will not find a more experienced and knowledgable realtor. From the moment we started talking to her about houses, she was fully engaged and passionate about helping us find the house that fit all our wants and needs. She was always available, be it by email or phone call. She did a ton of research prior to each weekend house-hunting excursion and helped point out perks and flaws that her experienced eyes noticed. When we narrowed down the search criteria to new homes, she created a spreadsheet with values and incentives for various builders in the area we wanted to be in. Diana was by our side through the whole build process, including providing recommendations for upgrades at the Design Center. During the construction process she sent us weekly updates on the progress of the home (including photos). Whenever we encountered an issue with the build, she would assist in helping reach out to the builder to resolve it.

During the sale of our house, Diana was even more engaged. She assisted in staging the home. She thought of many things we didn’t, and I have no doubt she was a large part of getting our house sold within days of listing and for more than our asking price. She also helped negotiate a 2 month lease-back which allowed us to smoothly move from our old house to our new house.

Diana is amongst the best in her field and we highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell. She started as relator, but has become a friend.”
~Cliff Ritchey

“Diana is a real estate professional. Her significant knowledge of the DFW market place – trends, activity and underlying issues – greatly benefits her clients. In my case, she astutely marketed and priced our 50 year old home such that we had multiple contracts the first week. There were a number of issues to clarify and negotiate. She did so efficiently, effectively and successfully. The sale was successfully closed within 30 days. We felt lucky to have her managing this potentially stressful process. We were downsizing. Diana quickly provided an extensive market analysis offering alternatives that met our substantial criteria. We were able to make a quick and informed selection. Her expertise made our buying process easier, less stressful and much quicker. We would not consider buying or selling a home in the Dallas-Fort Worth area without Diana.”
~L. French

“Diana helped us buy a house in Plano & sell a house in Flower Mound within a 3 month window. She found a home in a very specific location and was very patient in working with a very lackadaisical seller. She also helped us get a good deal on both ends. Diana’s attitude, work ethic, integrity and expertise is beyond compare and she is truly one of the Industry’s best realtors. She is the ultimate professional. We have done 3 transactions with Diana over the last 7 years and will engage her again in future.”
~V. and S.

“I was being transferred out of state and needed a reliable realtor to sell quickly. Diana Kopecky was referred to me by a co-worker whose home sold in 4 days with multiple offers and ultimately sold higher than list price. I had reservations since I lived in Fort Worth and I felt like Diana was a “Dallas realtor” and wouldn’t understand our market in the N. Fort Worth/Keller area but based on her reputation, awards and interviews with multiple realtors, I selected her over the cookie cutter realtors that saturated our area neighborhoods. She understands the entire D/FW real estate market and most importantly, what it takes to sell a home! She staged our home with her own personal accessories (no fee for this service) and we sold in under a month in a neighborhood that had a high inventory of comparable homes. At closing, those same homes were still on the market. Diana is a driven and dedicated professional who I highly recommend if you are looking for results, not excuses!”
~Therese Dotson

“My husband and I have been working with Diana for almost a decade. We have bought two houses with her, and each time, we have been blown away by her integrity, professionalism, and expertise. I would not think of making a real estate decision without her.”
~Chris and Elizabeth Rose

“We first met Diana while we were trying to sale a house lot. We fired the broker we were using because after six months we were not getting results. Diana was recommending by an architect that was providing house designs that would fit on our lot. We called Diana and after discussing our situation with her, and without meeting her in person, we felt that we needed to give her a chance to sell the lot. This wasn’t an easy lot to sell, but in the first couple of week we had some activity, more than what we had in the previous six months. Within six weeks the lot was sold.

At the lot closing we asked Diana to help us find a new house. We were very particular, but that didn’t bother her, she was up to the task. We begin the search in January and by June she found the house and local were looking for. She also listed our old house and sold it in one weekend for more than we ever thought we would get for it.

Diana is a task master, she is persistent and a very knowledgeable real estate professional. She was very helpful providing information and visiting many of the listings before showing them to us. She clearly understood the house and neighborhood we wanted. Her attention to detail, follow up and her commitment to us was unprecedented…she is the best.”
~ Dorothy & Milo Mattorano

“We met Diana through an ad in the newspaper regarding a lot that looked interesting. When we met her at the property, we quickly found out that the property was not at all what we were hoping. We explained to Diana what our requirements were and she got busy. She immediately set up a portal for us to review properties and notify her of those we were interested in. We looked at several properties on different occasions. From our first meeting, it was obvious that she had done her homework. She was aware of our requirements, but always took us to each property that we asked to see…sometimes even telling us that she didn’t think that this was the one. Finally, we narrowed our search and purchased a lot. Diana didn’t stop there. She attended EVERY meeting with our builders, designers, etc. It was always nice to have an extra set of eyes on “our side” so that when things that had been mentioned at first and yet somehow got lost thru the process, she was always there to agree with us as to what we had asked for. Then for our property. We were on 9 acres with nothing close to use in comps. Diana found us a gentleman who specialized in odd properties which were hard to comp. He did a great job. Without Diana, I truly do not believe that we would be living in our “dream house” today. She worked hard, was always easy to reach with any question that we had and was always on time. I truly think of Diana as a FRIEND and not just a realtor. Her integrity, knowledge, experience and hard work even helped us finish everything before the timeline that we had given her. You cannot go wrong by hiring Diana Kopecky for any of your real estate needs!”
~The Vicks

“Diana Kopecky has helped both our family, and our extended family with the purchase and sale of homes. You simply will not find another realtor who will work as hard as she does! From advising us on the sale of our home, to negotiating the purchase of the next home, she was always available to answer our questions — and made sure that she had the right answer! Her extensive knowledge of the local market ensured that pricing was appropriate in both directions and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. Although the sales are now final, she continues to act as a resource for us and is still answering questions! We will continue to recommend Diana to anyone we know looking to buy/sell in the DFW area.”
~J. Matthews

“When we found out our family was being relocated from CT to the DFW area, we were overwhelmed because we had no idea where to start, we were expecting our 4th child in a short time which limited our ability to see homes in person, and we had some unique needs due to health conditions in our family.

We were looking for homes that met certain Indoor Air Quality and other “Green” requirements.   After receiving a personal referral to Diana and reading her online recommendations, we decided to work with her.  One of the recommendations refers to her clients becoming “lifetime advocates.”  Well, we have joined the ranks.

We took an initial trip to the area during which Diana literally drove us over 200 miles the first day to scout out towns.  Even after scouting, because of our unique requirements, we kept a very wide range of locations in play – which increased the magnitude of work for Diana.   Then, when we had to return home, she became our eyes and ears.  She went to homes for us, took pictures and measurements for us, advised us on the market… and all things Texas!  She worked tirelessly for us.

Make no mistake – we were NOT easy clients.  Yet, Diana succeeded in finding us an awesome home that met our many unique needs and with which we are thrilled!  Even after we closed, she helped us coordinate with service contractors and assisted us in managing our home before we arrived — which was well beyond the scope of her duties as a realtor.  We couldn’t recommend her more highly and we will certainly be commending her to all our corporate relocation friends coming to this area!”
~ The Mattes

“We have known Diana Kopecky for over ten years and utilized her services to buy and sell several homes during that time. Moreover, we have recommended her to several family members, friends, and colleagues in the DFW area; all with good results. Her knowledge of the local market, superb customer service, and extensive transactional experience make her an ideal source of guidance and support for anybody buying, selling or building a home. She stands apart from other brokers by being more than a facilitator and order-taker, by proactively offering her extensive knowledge and factual market data to help clients make better decisions before, during, and after the transaction.  She supported us throughout the building process on our most recent home purchase including helping us interview builders, numerous walk-thru inspections and providing her time and opinion during the design process.

While we have become reasonably proficient in the home buying and selling process ourselves, we could not imagine trying to either buy or sell our next home without her support. We also continue to recommend her to friends and family alike, and would be glad to serve as a reference to any of her prospective clients.”
~The Ellis Family

“Diana is amazing! She was brought to me by a couple of friends and she went all out to help me get my house ready for sale and through the selling process itself. I have my real estate license, have friends in the business and worked with numerous realtors with my last job in window/glass replacement. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Dallas area. She truly does it like no one else. After meeting her and working with her, we are now friends and am looking forward to her visiting me at my new house in Baton Rouge.”
~Kirk Boudreaux

“I am 82 years old and Diana Kopecky helped me find my house when I moved to Texas from Kentucky, 7 years ago and helped me sell it when I moved to Tennessee in the summer of 2013.   She went above and beyond in helping me with not only the sell of the house, but all of the other details that a long-distance move entails.  My daughter and her family also used Diana Kopecky with the same success.  Our family would never consider another agent.  Diana is the best there is!”
~ Oleta

“There is absolutely no comparison to the excellent service we have received from Diana Kopecky. We have had the pleasure of working with her several times, and highly value her personal service. She continually worked hard on our behalf as though we were her most important client.

Diana has persistence in completing the task in a timely manner, which exemplifies her dedication to her clients and profession. She has astounding knowledge of the area, a positive winning attitude, along with great enthusiasm. Along with impeccable integrity, Diana remained constant and generous in providing mountains of information, and provided critical insights and guidance through necessary procedures. Attention to detail, follow through, and commitment to excellence, place her in a class of her own.

Throughout the years we have referred many neighbors, friends, and family to Diana; like us, they too have become LIFETIME ADVOCATES. Diana Kopecky has our highest recommendation.”
~Richard & Jodi

“Being out of state, it was very difficult to travel to Texas. Diana listened closely to our needs and desires and screened and previewed homes for us. She was dead-on in her judgments and removed so much of the stress of house-hunting. She truly understands the concept that the buyer has to live with the purchasing decision and showed great sensitivity and patience and worked tirelessly to match us with the house and location that met our needs.

During the closing process, Diana helped locate financing options, attended our inspection and monitored all of the repairs made by the sellers. She went above and beyond what we have come to expect from a real estate agent, treating us like friends not just clients.”
~Chuck and Mitzi Harris

“I first worked with Diana to purchase a home in Mckinney in 2005.  My home needs changed after meeting and marrying my husband who had 2 young children at the time.  Diana helped my husband and me sell the home we were in and purchase the home we are enjoying now in 2008. She goes above and beyond in a way we’ve never seen with other realtors we worked with before her. Her knowledge of the industry and energy to get the job done to our satisfaction are impressive. We know Diana is someone we can count on and trust to have our best interests at heart, and we will never use another realtor for our home buying and selling needs.  My husband and I trust her so much that when my mom decided to move closer to us from East Texas in 2012, we insisted she use Diana to help her find the right home for her needs and budget. Once again, Diana did not disappoint.  This says an immense amount about both her personal and professional skills as a realtor considering how particular my mom can be! Diana has earned our undying loyalty!!
~The Fewells

“I always felt I worked with good Realtors in the past — until I worked with Diana Kopecky ..What a wonderful surprise! Diana went above and beyond my expectations. She not only took me to many homes, she took my other family members to review these homes as well. Diana is more than generous with her time, she gave me good advice, much needed support and a positive attitude. I am still amazed at Diana’s understanding of my needs and how quickly she got things accomplished.

I appreciate Diana’s honesty, professionalism, preparedness, enthusiasm & patience. We have remained friends after the sale, I always recommend her to my friends and associates when they are searching for the right realtor.”
~Jim Heye

Diana is the BEST!‎‎ Want to sell your house in a tough market? Diana will make it happen! I listed my North Dallas home for sale in July (2008) with a discount Realtor. Not one single offer in 4 months!

I decided I needed a real pro and found Diana. She helped transform my vacant home into a staged masterpiece, for no additional cost. She handled all the logistics of furnishing the entire house and even made drastic improvements to the curb appeal on a shoestring budget. Within 3 weeks of listing with Staley Kopecky, I got an offer, which I accepted and am relieved to have some extra cash and am now less 1 mortgage.

Don’t make the mistake I made of not calling Diana first. She will sell your house, even in this market! Feel free to contact me through my blog, if you wish to verify my referral: BenLittlefield.com”
~Ben Littlefield

“My wife and I have had the privilege of working with Diana Kopecky on at least 5 real estate transactions. We have bought, sold and leased property using Diana’s expertise and there is simply no other realtor in DFW that we are willing to work with. Our most recent transaction was an astounding success. At Diana’s recommendation, we listed our home at the perfect time and had 2 CASH offers within 3 days! Her timing, market knowledge and negotiation skills are second to none. We have and continue to recommend that friends, family and coworkers contact Diana first. We are proud to call Diana Kopecky our Realtor For Life!”
~Kevin and Tamica Williams

“Diana was an absolute pleasure to work with. She quickly focused our search on properties that we were interested in, and showed us one great house after another. We’ve given Diana’s name to several friends and colleagues and all have been as delighted as we have been.”
~Eric and Sara

“Diana Kopecky has been such a great asset in helping us find just the right house to fit our family needs and wants. We often call her on other real-estate investments/advice and it has always been right on target. Diana is a very pleasant and positive person, she is also VERY knowledgeable about Real Estate.  Diana actually LISTENS to what you want but she will also gently inform you TRUTHFULLY what is REALISTIC. She is very honest and has great work ethics. We would highly recommend Diana Kopecky for all your real-estate needs.”
~The Pylates

“Diana was an absolute blessing to work with, she helped me through the entire home buying process and stayed up all hours of the night emailing me and setting up appointments to fit my schedule. I would recommend her to all my family and friends without hesitation !!!!”
~K Gillett

“Diana Kopecky knows her business. I’ve bought, owned and sold two previous homes in the Dallas/Highland Park areas and have worked with Top Brokers in the past. But, Diana’s expertise, knowledge and work ethic far surpasses her competition. I needed to move quickly due to the sale of my home. I was also moving closer to the company I work for, which was to a new area of town that I was not that familiar with. Diana’s superior organization of the listings in the area, combined with her excellent attention to the details of my requests, led me to my new home in remarkable time. She made everything so streamlined that it took the worry out of the experience and allowed to me focus on what I was looking for without waisting time. She is an absolute professional. I highly recommend Diana, and will refer her to my friends.”
~R. Cole

“We first met Diana when we moved to Texas from Nebraska in 2006. She came highly recommended from a friend. We immediately understood the confidence our friend had in her. Diana went above and beyond in gaining information for us on schools, taxes, community and commute times. This was invaluable to us since we knew nothing about the Dallas area. We have recommended her many times since and when it was time for us to move again, Diana was the first call we made. She staged our home perfectly and it sold the first week on the market! Thank you, Diana!”
