Tell Us Your Story

Two years ago after my dad passed away my mom decided to move from Oregon to New Jersey to live with me, which meant that we would need to find a mother/daughter house and/or a house that could offer us both some separate space….

no easy task as the market was hot and most of the houses that fit our needs got scooped up quickly. When we first met Diane we hit it off immediately and we felt that she listened to our concerns and went above and beyond to help find us the perfect home. Throughout that nearly year long process to find a house, Diane helped us navigate the complexities of buying a home in NJ, which consisted of making different offers on multiple houses. Diane never tired of trying to find us the perfect house to meet our needs. Diane is professional, compassionate, honest and dedicated to her business, we couldn’t have asked for a better realtor!

Christie Alston and Loree Fogleman (Home Buyer)

Diane is a true professional who also adds a personal quality when listing &/or selling a house.

She truly understands that it is not just a house, but it’s someone’s home. My mom now considers Diane as another daughter!

Patricia Scardigno

Diane helped us find our forever home.

After one conversation she understood what we were looking for and quickly set up appointments to view homes. She knows her stuff. She would point out things we never thought to look at and was honest in her opinions. We were comfortable discussing all pros and cons of any home we viewed. Within two weeks we found our home. The home had another offer and she worked hard to get the seller to chose ours. We were blessed to meet and work with Diane. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Melissa Figueroa Rivera

Diane went above and beyond to make the sale of my mom's house a smooth transition.

Angela Timpone

She's very calm and will give you honest and thoughtful advice throughout the stressful process of buying a home. I never doubted that I could trust her. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Kathryn Memoli (Client )

Julia was extremely easy to deal with, and made the home buying process fun and less stressful.

She does a great job of keeping you informed every step of the way, and supplying you with the answers that you are looking for. Always on time, and always available to talk! I would gladly use her services again.


Diane has the patience of a saint!

She worked with us to find the perfect home, always with a smile on her face. She and her team were always available for showings, to answer questions, and relieve our anxiety. I highly recommend her, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and use her again. Joy Thacker


Diane is the best!

She truly cares about her clients and has a genuine motivation to serve her clients with their best interests in mind. She helped us find our dream home! She was relentless in her search for just shy of a year with our family and she added a process to the search that a lot of realtors won’t offer or possibly even consider. She thinks out of the box when necessary and draws on her decades of experience to make deals happen. She pointed things out to us at several houses throughout our search that we wouldn’t have noticed on our own and kept us from probably jumping into some houses that were wrong for us. If you are looking for a realtor who will be your partner in the process Diane is it. I could write pages and pages on why I recommend her!

Santo gemma

It was an absolute pleasure working with Diane Traverso in selling our home.

We were actually selling our house and moving out of state and Diane was always there to help us. She is extremely knowledgeable concerning the real estate and housing market and always took the time to explain things to us, answer all of our questions (a lot!) and address all of our concerns. Diane always made herself available to be at our house when we were unavailable and importantly always checked to make sure our house was secure after appointments or to meet service contractors etc. Diane is so conscientious that she even helped us with our garden flowers and cellar dehumidifier when we were not able to be at the house. We have known Diane for many years and there is absolutely no one else we'd rather work with. We trust Diane and her expertise immensely and would highly recommend her to family, friends and anyone. Diane definitely earns and deserves her 5 Star Rating. Thanks Diane!!

Doug & Katie Rudd (Retired)

We had the pleasure of working with Diane in selling my mothers home in N.

J. As I was located out of state there were many challenges in getting everything done. Diane went above and beyond. Many thanks for a job well done.

Jack De Sarno

Diane is the absolute best real estate agent!

She is professional, kind-hearted, and truly amazing at what she does. She helped us find our dream home and went above and beyond to finalize the deal in an extremely competitive market (during COVID). She sent over 200 letters to homeowners for us and ultimately one of them responded and we ended up purchasing the home (while we watched friends in bidding wars and unable to locate a home to purchase). She knew all the right questions to ask, red flags to look for, and helped steer us in the right direction for us. Her years of experience and knowledge are exactly what we needed in this tough market. Thanks Diane!!!!!!!!!

Diane was super throughout this entire transaction. Her market analysis was spot on and I was confident with the asking price for our home. Her photographer for the listing was superb and the photographs truly represented our home. She worked with us on the description and again I was pleased. She was very responsive in our communications whether email, text, or phone call. Everything was followed through with no detail too small. We were confident and trusted her and knew she would do the right thing. I would not hesitate to recommend her. Thanks Diane!

I I met Diane 7 years ago and she is as wonderful today as she was then.

After selling my marital home after a divorce, I had a very tight budget in purchasing a new home for myself and my 2 college aged children. She went over and above in helping me find a wonderful home for my family. To this day, she still goes over and beyond in helping recommending people to help me maintain my home. During this COVID-19 crisis, she even reached out to me to offer her help with my elderly parents who live in Ocean County. Diane is not just a wonderful realtor, but a dear friend for life!

erica dorando

From the onset of my property search in New Jersey back in spring 2022, and was introduced to Dawn, I immediately found that she was a consummate professional and that the interest of the client was paramount to her.

After a relatively short search, Dawn finally brought to my attention the right property fitting my desired location, needs and price point. I am truly grateful for her being in my corner. Outstanding agent!

Vincent Colaiacovo

Diane Traverso was highly energetic, professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of residential real estate.

She navigated the C of O process with ease and smoothed out any hiccups along the way. It was a pleasure to work with her on the current sale of my home as well as other past transactions.

James Pappas

Finding Dawn was a fortunate accident for me.

I was referred to someone else in the office but she became unavailable. Dawn was exceptionally attentive and as helpful as I could ever expect. Highly recommended.

Gerald Marzarella

I cannot say enough good things about Diane Traverso, the realtor that helped me find my "forever home".

Diane is professional, knowledgeable, and knows how to get things done. From start to finish I was treated as if I was her number one priority. Diane is organized and made sure that every document and every task that needed to complete the sale was taken care of in a timely manner. That took so much of the stress off of me. I am so grateful to Diane for making the purchase of my new home a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her to everyone I meet. Thank you Diane!!! Marie



She is a professional who knows exactly what her clients need. I didn't have time to be involved at all in the sale I hired Diane to manage. She took care of EVERYTHING. Absolutely everything. I never had to follow up. She made smart decisions and got the job done. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I highly recommend Diane and would use her again.

Solly Savdie (Buyer)

Diane did a great job of not only selling our home, in a difficult market, but also helping us to relocate

Thomas Damato

Having had Diane as my real estate agent was a blessing.

Would you recommend your family member who has your best interest at heart to others? That’s how I felt about Diane when she first walked into my home,- family! And I was just a client, no relation. Not only she was kind and soon to be proven trustworthy offering her professional experience, she listened carefully while respectfully teaching me to make right decisions, I had recently lost my husband and cared and still was attached to the house. Even outside of work she was very helpful, caring for a person first and then choosing right contractors, fixing things around the house herself or recommending the most respected and dedicated attorney. And she was always calm under pressure! I call that a great service! I call that a winning service! Diane is a great real estate agent! Would I recommend her to others? In a heartbeat! Sincerely, Lia Wear

Lia Wear

While I have known Diane socially for many years, this was my first experience with her professionally.

And boy did she deliver! Not only did our house sell in 3 days but we got over 10% above asking price. She juggled the numerous offers with a cool head and was able to negotiate the final price which was beyond our expectations. Diane was unable to assist us in buying another house due to location, but she has spent many hours assisting us in our next chapter. And Diane did it all with a fantastic sense of humor. 🤣 She is a outstanding realtor and has now become a lifelong friend.

Nicole Cernigliaro

Christie Alston

I have known Diane for many years as she first helped us find a house and just recently sell our house and I would say she was the perfect agent.

She was hard working, detail oriented and good with people, transitioning a smooth closing to both buyer and seller. Diane is highly recommended.

Leilani Latriano

Meeting Diane was total fate; I had called about another listing she had, but that was gone in this crazy, fast-paced market.

Just from speaking with me over the phone for fifteen minutes, she chose houses I would consider and could afford. I loved every one we saw, but I walked into this house, and it was the one!! Thank you, Diane, for finding the perfect home for me, and for ending my two-year journey by finding my home-sweet-home!

Denise Willard

Laura Alanskas

Diane was recommended to us by friends whom she had helped a few years ago.

We are so happy they did. Diane was tremendous in helping us through this very stressful time of purchasing a home. Her level of customer service is unparalleled.

We highly recommended her to everyone interested in a real estate transaction!

As first time home buyers we really appreciated Julia’s guidance through the home buying process. Julia answered all of our questions and concerns in a very timely manner. She was willing to meet us at any time and day in order for us to view houses and set up inspections. Julia’s services went above and beyond and we are so grateful to have worked with her! I highly recommend reaching out to Julia to help you find your next home!

Michael Hall

Diane Traverso is a gold star realtor in my opinion.

During an impossibly competitive real estate market she never gave up in my search to purchase a home. She is a consummate professional and combines that with a warm friendly and open demeanor that makes working with her a pleasure. Her vast experience as a Broker equips her to navigate any situation that arises. She was always responsive and thorough which was essential .

Dawn Hurley

From my very first ‘phone call to Diane to the closing, she made what was a very difficult journey into a very smooth path.

Her recommendations, attention to detail, and awareness of what was needed went far above and beyond what I expected. (She even took care of my plants when I was not home for a few days.). I don’t think ANYONE could have done as well. Thank you Diane.

Joan Nicosia

Diane was fantastic from the start to the end.

Every piece of advice was spot on. Once she knew what we were looking for, that is what we saw. We were able to move forward with her help.

Julia did an excellent job.

She was friendly, knowledgeable and patient as my wife and I looked for homes. We ended up getting accepted on a home we loved thanks to Julia's guidance. I don't believe we could have done it without her, I would recommend Julia to anyone in need of a realtor. She is a sweetheart.

What can I say?

I don't think I would have been able to make this move without Diane's attention and guidance. Not only did she find me the best buyers for my home but quickly found me my new home. I highly recommend Diane for any of your real estate needs.
