Real Estate Expertise
Very strong listing agent, all price ranges.
Specialty niche in river view properties.

My wife and I are currently working with Dianne in the sale of our current home and purchase of a townhouse. She helped us negotiate a great price on the townhouse. Within the first week of listing our home, we had several viewings and accepted an offer. Dianne's thorough knowledge and dedication to her client helped to make the experience less stressful. Dianne responds immediately to any and all concerns and has been a pleasure to work with. We Highly recommend Dianne to anyone looking for a Dedicated and Professional Real Estate Experience!
Working with Dianne was a true pleasure! She knows her business and is, without question, one of the best real estate agents in Hudson Valley.
Helped me sell a home. Dianne has extensive knowledge and experience which was evident in both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one. She guided us through both processes and catered to all our needs in both a professional and caring manner. Dianne is extremely responsive, available at all hours of the day/days of the week, and has a thorough knowledge of the market. I would highly recommend Dianne to represent anyone interested in selling their current home or looking to buy a new one. She is outstanding and puts the needs of her clients first!
My husband and I couldn't say better things about working with Dianne. We first met her when we were looking in the area as my husband had accepted a job in the area. We decided to rent for a couple years before buying, so we kept her card until we were ready to buy. Dianne reached out to me out of the blue a couple years down the road, actually uncanny timing as we were ready to house hunt! She was phenomenal in all aspects: professional, courteous, honest, knowledgeable (as we were first time home buyers), patient, responsive. We can't believe how lucky we got in meeting Dianne. She not only helped us find our house, but made the process seamless. She also connected us with local contractors for different jobs in updating our house (of which all have done stellar work). You won't find many agents like Dianne. She is no pressure, has a great sense of balance in meeting your needs and has deep roots in the community so was very helpful as we are fairly new to the area. She enjoys what she does and she's great at it. It was surely a pleasure working with her and I wouldn't think of using any other agent should I return to looking for a house in the Hudson Valley area.
To Whom it may Concern:
My name is Michael Minogue, and two years ago, I decided to sell my house of 20 years. My house was located on Manor Drive in the town of Poughkeepsie. It was located in the sub-division known as Scenic Hills/High Acres.
Selling a home is not always an easy decision, and with the general economic down turn, not a very timely decision, however, having made the decision to go forward, I decided to engage Dianne as my Real Estate Agent.
The house was actively shown, and with some proactive suggestions from Dianne regarding a slight adjustment in the selling price, a young couple made an offer.
My house was a neat, clean, up to date home, but it sold due to the efforts of Dianne. She was able to connect my house, with the buyers, thinking it would be a good match.
From start to finish, the house sale was as pleasurable as a house sale can be. It went smoothly with the exception of one neighborhood concern, which I was not aware of. Dianne addressed this concern in a professional, and matter of fact manner, and resolved the concern.
If I ever decide to enter into another sale of Real Estate, I would not hesitate, to once again, engage Dianne as my Real Estate Agent.

We worked with Dianne on both the purchase of our DREAM home and the sale of our current home. Dianne was an absolute pleasure to work with. With regards to the purchase of our new home, she listened to every single one of our wants and wishes. She was there with us throughout the enitre buying process, and even after we had moved in. She was there every step of the way to answer any of our questions. With the sale of our current home, her advertising listing was complete and accurate with top-notch, professional pictures and a very detailed description of our home. Her attitude was always professional, positive and realistic. We always knew we were getting the truth from Dianne. She was always just a phone call or email away. We had never worked with someone who was so prompt with returning calls; we were always treated like we were her most important clients! We highly recommend Dianne Minogue to walk you through your home buying or selling needs.

Choosing Dianne as our broker was the easiest part of deciding to list our home in the fall of 2009. Her first visit to assess our place was honest and accurate, as much as I hated to hear it. We were in the process of painting, the house was a mess and she advised us to list at a price about $25k less than we really thought the place would sell for. But her list price was very realistic in the market place at that time. It motivated me to finish painting, decluttering and staging for her next visit when we were ready to list. Her expectations--and listing price--increased by the same $25k we wanted and our house sold two days later at its first showing! It was priced right and looking its very best thanks to Dianne's honesty and a lot of hard work. Staging absolutely works, so if you're serious about selling quickly, ask Dianne for tips.
Selling was the easy part for us. After our whirlwind sale, and pushing up against the expiration of the first time home-buyers tax credit (our buyer needed it), we needed a place to live. Dianne showed us 25+ houses in a month and was always available to meet our schedule. When we decided there just wasn't anything on the market that suited us, she found a builder in our price range and attended the first several meetings with us while we worked out the details. When it seemed possible that our deal might fall through, she immediately began looking for new listings that might work for us and showed us 5 more before we finally started to build our dream home.
Describing Dianne as a real estate agent couldn't be easier.....honest, tenacious, invaluable and a friend for life!
Thank you Dianne!

“I have known Dianne for a number of years and I have consulted with her on the buying and selling of real estate in Dutchess County a number of times. As a real estate investor, I rely on Dianne for her expert opinion of location and price whenever I am buying property in her territory. The same holds true when selling. When Dianne prices a property to sell, she hits the nail on the head! On our last deal together (Spring 2009…a horrible selling market for most), Dianne listed the property and we accepted an offer at 99% of the list price within one week! Unheard of in our area during that time…except for Dianne…check her track record…feats like this are “normal” for her! I whole heartedly recommend Dianne for ALL of your real estate needs, buying or selling. She IS the BEST you can work with!”
Paul Bilotti, President, New Realitys.com
While moving some of Dianne’s clients over the past few years, they all could not stop saying how wonderful she was to work with. They mentioned that Dianne was knowledgeable, courteous and most of all worked very hard on their behalf. A true professional!”
David Feldman VP, Sales, Arnoff Moving & Storage
“Dianne is a compassion, competent and dedicated professional. She is thorough and innovative. I always have great confidence when I refer someone to her because I know she will provide the highest service possible.”
Dr. Richard Gennaro, Gennaro Family & Sports Chiropractic
“Dianne made the process of buying a house a breeze for my wife and I. As first time homebuyers, we had lots of questions. Dianne was there for us every step of the way, and always provided excellent service. She has the experience you need and the personality you want in a real estate agent. We recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy a home.”
Scott Lucente, New Homeowner
“Whether you’re looking to buy, sell or just need information on the real estate market, Dianne is THE person to consult. She is a true professional and has all the knowledge and tools to make your real estate transaction happen - in any market. When you need results, call Dianne!”

"I have done business with Dianne both selling her vehicles as well as referring clients to her. She is direct, ambitious, and effective. Clients I have referred to her have been very happy with the success she has brought them. Truly a pleasure to do business with!”
Jennifer Sweet, General Sales Manager Friendly Mercedes, Wappingers Falls, NY
"Dianne, thank you for all you’ve done for me. You never gave up and made this whole process so much easier. Your experience, professionalism, dedication, and especially your kindness and honesty make all the difference. You are a blessing and I am truly grateful.”
Joe Spinney, New Homeowner
Just saying thank you for the great job you did in handling the sale of our house seems inadequate. From the listing to the closing, you were available 24/7 by stopping by the house, calling, or e-mailing. All our questions and concerns were addressed promptly. Moreover, the quality of your network of contacts to assist us along the way was amazing. Whether it was a contractor, a lawyer, or a mover, you had the right referral. Your suggestions on the pricing of the house, how to improve its appearance, the photographing of the property and house interior, and the brochure you created were right on the money. Your ability to generate a flow of interested buyers through advertising, the open house, and the Houlihan Lawrence sign in the front of the driveway was impressive. So many thanks, instead of one thank you, is in order.
Dr. and Mrs. Eric Miller
It was such a pleasure working with you through this difficult market and process. Your communication with us was outstanding and always eased my mind. Your photographs of the house and brochures were amazing. The advertising was superb and we appreciated that terrific center add in the Journal. Thank you for everything. If we ever move back to NY we will look you up!
I am so very impressed with your professionalism and your photographer. She made my house look great. It will sell thanks to you...I just know it will.
Thank you for everything. It was my lucky day when I listed with you. I have never experienced a REAL real estate agent in all my life. Now I truly know what a real professional real estate agent is supposed to be.
From Linda and Stu Hubbard....If you come to the point in your life that you need to sell a beloved home - call Dianne.
My husband and I renovated an old abandoned house starting 38 years ago, brought it back to life and raised our two daughters there. So a lot of time, energy and love spent on this old 1743 historic home. But life moves on and sometimes we have to say goodbye to a place we love.
Dianne helped us face reality, walked us through all the things we had to do, and brought in a wonderful stager - who initially gave me a heart attack - but in the end I agreed with everything she suggested. Dianne also brought in an amazing photographer who understood the beauty of this old home and worked hard to portray it. Throughout the painful process of selling a home that you love, Dianne was very supportive and understanding. She helped us through each stage of the process.
We interviewed several different real estate agents before deciding that Dianne was the right person. And she was.
