Diane Hourany Real Estate Consultant

What makes me different from a “traditional agent” –most agents do business as if they will never see or hear from you again. Just like a cab driver, they ask “Where ya headed?” Sometimes they’ll get you to your destination safely. And sometimes… well, let’s just say they like to get you there as fast as possible so they can get on to their next fare. My way of doing business is to think of our relationship as a long-term association, not just a "deal" like the many "cab drivers" out there.

I will guide you before and during the process and be there for you long after the transaction is over. I aim to be your real estate consultant…for life! A high percentage of my business comes to me by referral from friends, past clients, friends of past clients. Because they have dealt with me in the past, and have seen first-hand the high level of service and commitment I provide to my clients, there is a very high level of trust. That means: trust in my integrity, in my level of skill and market knowledge to do the best job possible, and in my commitment to put the needs and requirements of my clients first.

Let the words used by some of my clients tell you:

 “… professional, remarkable in negotiating, knowledgeable about the market, continues to deliver service well after the close, goes the extra mile, takes the extra time, patient, easygoing, wonderful to work with, dedicated, approachable, number one goal is customer satisfaction, listens closely to concerns and desires, followed through on every detail, comforting throughout the process, highest quality personal service, has top-notch resources, Diane deals with everyone involved in the sale and subsequent purchase of a home with honesty and respect, we recommend Diane without a shred of reservation”

My Commitment To You
- I will intelligently and persistently ask you profound, insightful questions so I can advise and consult with you on how to make your dreams come true. I will courageously and powerfully negotiate for you, treating your money as if it were mine. I will oversee the details in the transaction which includes hundreds of issues that must be dealt with in a timely and effective way.

Accolades

"Diane Hourany was the consummate professional from start to finish. Many sellers make the mistake of viewing the real estate professional primarily as a salesperson. Of course that's one aspect of the entire project. Diane started by assessing my expectations and came equipped to describe the quirks of the San Francisco real estate micro economy. Together we arrived at a goal and when it came time for the offers we did extraordinarily well. What made this experience a pleasure was Diane's "spot-on" handling of all details. This marketing campaign took place while I was mostly out of the Bay Area and at times even out of the US. She expertly applied every Internet trick to keep in contact. And when the offers came in, we exchanged Acrobat files. It was smooth as silk. The bonus is that she's pleasant and flexible. I would gladly work with Diane again!"
--Marc S

Accolades

"Absolutely nothing could have been done to make this better. Diane was exceptional, informative, fun, and above all a true buyers' representative. She guided us through the process with her expertise and always kept us well informed of the progress and next steps required. She is someone that we will highly recommend to anyone!"
--Colin & Julian

Accolades

"Diane was a joy to work with! She was very personable and really took the time to figure out what was important to us as first time home buyers. At the same time, she was extremely professional and tough on the external parties when she needed to be. Because she is so well connected, we were able to be the first people to view the unit in a building we had admired for some time. She also adds a personal touch to the extensive process that put us at ease even as we moved into our new home. Thanks, Diane!"
--Michelle C

Accolades

"Diane made everything so easy! When we had to sell our condo because of a cross-country move, Diane took a huge load off our shoulders by finding stagers, coordinating them with painters, and bringing our condo on the market in such a beautiful condition (and at just the right price) that we had an abundance of offers, and sold over the initial asking price. We watched and marveled from 3,000 miles away as our condo was transformed, and Diane kept us abreast at key junctures through e-mail and phone calls. I kept forgetting that we were selling because it required so little work on our part. Diane is a consummate professional and a delightful person, and we're grateful for her skill and reliability. If you are looking for a Realtor who is easy to work with, values her personal relationship with her clients, and proceeds in all decisions with prudence and integrity, Diane is the right agent for you."
--Jane W

Accolades

"Diane was exceptional in our process-so knowledgeable, professional, detail-oriented, a great negotiator and super nice to boot! Definitely exceeded my expectations!"
--Pamela & Kris H

Accolades

"Diane is an exceptional realtor who is highly effective and service-oriented. Through her expert guidance, we were able to purchase our dream house in the midst of a competitive bidding situation, and sell our previous home for more than 20% over the asking price."
--Chris and Nancy D

Accolades

"Diane is very thorough and professional and utilizes her profound experience to put your priorities first at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending Diane to my friends or relatives."
--Ryan L, MD

Accolades

"If you're looking for an agent in San Francisco and would like to work with someone who's not only professional and knowledgeable about the market, but also trustworthy, approachable and dedicated, Diane should definitely be on the top of your list!"
--Vivian T

Accolades

"Diane’s first priority was not just to make a sale, but to make me happy as a customer, and to build a long term relationship. She did not only give me an advice, but actually worked hard to follow through on every detail. I am currently planning a new home purchase. Guess who I am hiring."
--Yasser D

Accolades

"I highly recommend Diane for her professional skills and her personal touch – it’s a combination that’s hard to beat!"
--Günter W

Accolades

"Diane came to me upon the recommendation of two friends who worked with her and liked her style and results. Diane sold my condo in the same manner and went the “extra mile” for me. I lived 3000 miles away from the condo and it was tenant occupied – Diane worked through all of these obstacles and many more with knowledge, humor and results. Her knowledge of the “business” and communication skills helped to sell my condo quickly and at my asking price. I’d definitely work with her again."
--Ron T

Accolades

"In a world full of people willing to do almost anything for a buck, Diane deals with everyone involved in the sale and subsequent purchase of a home with honesty and respect. We recommend Diane without a shred of reservation."
--William S

Accolades

"More than any realtor we had worked with previously, Diane provided us with the highest quality personal service in both the purchase and sale of our property. Our interaction with Diane didn't stop at the transactions' closings. Because we trust Diane to deliver this same service to others, we have recommended her to many friends."
--Liz H

Accolades

"My entire experience was so stress-free, all because of Diane. Everything was handled so promptly, efficiently, professionally and accurately that I felt I had very little to do besides sign the papers. She kept me fully informed and was attentive and accessible, which added to my feelings of trust in her work. I have nothing but praise for Diane and cannot express my gratitude for all she's done for me and the way in which she's done it. Thanks to her, my purchase felt easy and seamless and I therefore had the opportunity to ensure that I was making the right decision."
--Laura E
