I hope you will find the following testimonials helpful.  They are from 2009

through 2011.  If you would like to speak directly with past or current clients, I will

be happy to put you in contact with them. 



Michael and I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your sound
advice and counsel during the recent price negotiation phase of our home
selling process. Since it is both an emotional and financial decision for
us, it was extremely helpful to have you on the other end to advise us
based on the facts and keeping the broader picture in mind - that of the
current market conditions and home values. By being able to draw upon your
sound advice in this area we accepted an offer that I know we otherwise
would have passed by. You enabled us to make the right decision based on
real estate facts rather than emotion. Most importantly, we came to that
decision comfortably knowing you were basing your advise on facts,
expertise in the field and our best interest at heart. It was never about
making a sale, for sales sake, it was about making an informed decision
based on today's ever complex market. It was because of your expert advise
that we accepted the offer and most importantly understood why it was a
good offer and as a result we walked away feeing good about it!

So thanks again for enabling us to make a good solid decision. You have
been invaluable in every phase of this process including our future
purchase. You again enabled us to make an offer based on solid market
analysis rather than just picking a number that sounded good. The
facilitated a good purchase negotiation as well.

Now onto the closing(s)!

Thanks again,

David & Michael

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 listed in early October, 2009.

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 in late February, 2010. The house was sold and closed on during the early part of April, 2010.

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!”

"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.”

Dear Dianne,
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.

Thanks Diane,
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!
Take care Diane,

Dear Dianne,

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.
