My wife and I recently sold our first house and we didn’t know where to turn. We knew Diana from when we originally purchased the house and she made us feel comfortable right from the start. One thing that I really like about her is she is transparent on the process and very open to questions. We were very pleased that we chose her to be our realtor and we would use her again if needed.

First of all, how can I possibly start. Diana Kolec was so helpful from the first moment that we met her at an open house. She was willing to go above and beyond even if we weren’t even going to use her as our realtor. The communication with her was amazing throughout the whole process and she was constantly giving us updates. I purchased my home while being out of the area due to my military service yet she was overly accommodating the entire time to ensure everything went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend her as a realtor, especially for you military folks out there! She has such a heart and passion for the military, is very knowledgeable about some of the extra things we need and such an incredible woman. She truly went above and beyond to make sure that I got into my home as soon as possible!

I loved working with Diana. She helped me buy the house I wanted, walked me through the steps, and made the process easy to digest; especially, since it can be daunting for first home buyers like me. She is prompt, professional and communicates clearly – at any time of the day. Be it early morning or almost bed-time, she will text back, provide the necessary information and get the paperwork digitally signed. Five out of five stars overall. I highly recommend working with her, as she goes above and beyond and sets the benchmark for what a real estate agent should be like. I would work with her again in the future, hands down.
Diana was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her professionalism and friendly attitude did wonders to calm my nerves as a first time homebuyer. Diana goes the extra mile, and I don’t know that I could have purchased a home from out of state without her guidance.

When I decided to sell my Lompoc house and move to Santa Maria I called Diana to discuss selling my Lompoc home. She advised me what needed to be done to get my home ready to sell. It went up for sale on a Monday and by Wednesday we had 5 showings with three full price offers by Thursday. Everything happened so fast I hadn’t even started shopping for loans for my new home or looked at any homes in Santa Maria. Diana was calm, cool and collected and I accepted an offer with a 45-day escrow to allow me time to find my new home. Diana made recommendations for financing and sent me several listings that fit my requests. We set up a day to look at several homes that I requested and one that Diana also wanted me to see even though it had an HOA which I was not really interested in. The home that Diana picked for me was perfect, it had met all my needs and then some. We made an offer and we opened escrow. Diana and Rich were amazing through the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home. They made recommendations to help me from inspections, financing and getting estimates. Diana was a call or text away to answer all my questions no matter how big or small and shared her knowledge to make this process the best it could be especially considering this all took place the beginning of December. They know their stuff and if there was something they weren’t sure of they called in an expert to ensure I was fully informed with all the necessary information on my home sale and home purchase.
Rich was an amazing Realtor to work with. His knowledge and experience with the sales process immediately put me at ease and made the entire sale as easy as possible. Rich was in constant communications with me the entire time, letting me know where we were in the process, what steps were coming up, and answering all my questions. Rich’s understanding of the current Santa Maria market helped us price so that the house sold quickly while remaining exceptionally competitive. As soon as the house was on the market, Rich had potential buyers lined up for tours. Within the first week we had close to 10 tours, and by the second week, the house was sold!
I would highly recommend Rich to anyone buying or selling a home in the Central Coast.
Lorna and I are very pleased with Diana Kolec’s handling of the sale of our house. The sale of our house was prompted by our desire back in April (when we made it known to Diana) that we were going to retire in Hawaii around August 2019. The timeline of the sale of the house was set in motion starting (with her recommendation for) the pricing the house in a most competitive yet practical manner based on its current market value. Next on the timeline was making the house’s appearance presentable both from the inside and outside. Once again, she made recommendations that made our home worthy of the price we’re asking for. The final and maybe the most critical factor in our timeline was the length of time we required her to get the house sold in time for our move in August. This final requirement as she called it was a “Tall Order” from us which she delivered that eventually got the house successfully sold in less than a week from the time it was advertised.
Her active involvement with all of our concerns, her attention to minor details, her willingness to respond on demand and her overall cooperation gave us a very positive and encouraging experience.
Thank you Diana for everything!!!

My experiences with Diana have been nothing short of amazing. I purchased/built my first home with her, and sold the same house with her as well. She eased my anxiety through both processes and was always there for me when I needed her to be. If you’re in search of an honest, transparent and dependable realtor, she’s your Realtor!
Working with Diana was an incredibly pleasant experience. She made the purchase of our first home as stress-free as if could possibly be, and so when it was time to sell we did not hesitate to call her. She heard every concern we had and really took the time to walk us through every step of the process. Her experience, transparency and concern for her clients was undeniable. It was a pleasure then and likewise the second time around. Thank you for your commitment to your clients!

Diana, I just wanted to say how your expertise and knowledge of all procedures in real estate made for a smooth transaction. I truly appreciated your guidance making certain we were involved in each step…from beginning to signing escrow papers and closing early on the property. Thank you!
Thank you for making it so easy and fun when we purchased our new home. We were really impressed at how you assisted with our purchase and made sure that all of our custom upgrades were selected, ordered and installed to our specifications. You made everything go so smoothly. We love our new home. Thank you Diana!

Through all the anticipation and stress of buying a home, Diana’s professionalism, being above board, and taking time to listen, made the process the most seamless it has ever been for us. Thanks Diana, I can’t imagine buying or selling another home without you!
Working with Diana Kolec is like discovering that your best friend is a real estate agent. I say this because Diana always puts the interests of her clients first – even ahead of her own interests. Add to that her experience and professionalism and you have an agent you can trust unequivocally.
I can speak for most families within the Briar Creek Community when I say Diana Kolec has been the most professional person I have ever known. Her expertise with home sales and answering any question my wife and I had throughout the building of our dream home has been answered with the most respect and with the highest integrity we could have asked for!

Upon meeting Diana, she became an immediate and effective Realtor I could rely on while buying a brand new home from a builder she represented. She sold over 145 houses at the development and made the process run smoothly and effectively. Ms. Kolec has consistent razor-sharp intellect, attention to detail, and expertise in her profession was an asset to me time and time again. She made my home ownership dreams come true with tremendous supportiveness. I can tell that she helps each client with the same generosity, patience and skill. Amazing!
We look forward to serving your professional real estate needs.
Diana Kolec and Richard Monighetti
