Diane is awesome! She is efficient, thorough, friendly, ferocious (in her negotiations), and a outright genuine pleasure to work with. She assisted me in quickly finding and buying the perfect home at an unbelievably low cost. My purchase was of a home offered on a short sale, which initially concerned me a great deal due to all the horror stories I had heard. Diane told me up front not to worry and then showed me why, as she made the entire process very simple. She immediately and effortlessly assisted me in overcoming any and every obstacle as they arose - "and there were a lot." She responded immediately with the right answer at all hours (not just the M-F 9 to 5 stufff) to any questions or concerns I had and really "got the job done." What was most impressicve to me about Diane was the fact, that although my home was not that expensive (compared to so many other large homes on the market), the assistance and service she gave me was nothing short of exemplary. Diane is the best!

Diane is awesome to work with! She helped us with the whole short sale process from beginning to end. She definitely knows her stuff!

As of out of state buyers, we were very fortunate to have someone as knowledgeable and responsive as Diane to step us through the process of buying a home in Georgia. Her wealth of real estate knowledge and professionalism are outdone only by her responsiveness and willingness to go the extra mile. She is a high energy individual with a wide network to get things done fast. We would highly recommend Diane and will be using her for all of our real estate needs in the future.

It took a while to find a good agent and Diane was the best. She was very knowlegeable and knew exactly how to do a short sale. Her suggestions were right on and made everything happen. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking to list their house.
Diane was a wonderful agent and made the process of buying my first home easy and enjoyable. She was patient and supportive as I narrowed my search to the right area. The biggest positive about Diane was that she was so responsive. She would call or email back so quickly that I felt like I was her most important client. If you want a Realtor to truly meet all of your needs and go above and beyond, then call Diane!
Great realtor. Very knowledgable and helpful in all steps of the home buying process. Promptly returns all messages and has excellent negotiation skills. I would recommend Diane to anyone looking to buy a house.
Before placing my mom's unoccupied home on the market, I did a lot of research on agents in the area. Diane far exceeded my expectations from beginning to a successful sale. Both she, and her assistant, Julie, were total professionals from day one. Not only was I impressed with her knowledge of the market, but also with her ability to deal with a less than cooperative lender. I was able to sit back without worry while she kept me informed of every detail. Her overall control of the sale left me stress free. Fabulous job!
My home was a short sale listing. My lender was very unresponsive and drug their approval of the short sale out for almost 7 months. Diane kept after them and never gave up. She was totally responsible for keeping the buyer on board during those trying months. Several times the buyer almost backed out but she kept them involved and up to date.
My home was on the market for 28 months total. Once I listed my home with Diane we had it under contract within 45 days. She, along with her assistant - Julie, handled all aspects of the short sale process professionally. I never had to worry about a thing. All the info and feedback they provided was accurate and timely.
I have worked with Diane since September on finding myself my first home. She has been with me every step of the way and she has been more like a friend then a realtor! As long as she is selling houses, I won't use ANYONE else! I recommend her to anyone and everyone I know! Thanks Diane for everything!!!!
Diane spent a couple of months with me working to find the right place to meet my needs and wants. We spent a lot of time in several areas before I found what I was looking for. It was great having someone in my corner who was genuinely interested in helping me find the perfect home. With her years of experience and immense knowledge of the area, she was able to help me find the PERFECT home, just for me. She knows how to read her clients and get a real feel for the individual they are, not just a person looking for a house. I could not be happier having her as my agent, she is A+ all the way. She is excellent at the negotiation table and my closing was easier than I could have ever imagined.
If you're in need of a well experienced Realtor who has high energy with a no-excuses attitude and is up to any task, then Diane Menard is the person you are looking for! She is the best of the best. She is very professional and well informed with the current housing market. This being our first home we were nervous about certain decisions. With Diane's knowledge and expertise, she put our minds at ease. She takes pride in her work. I will always refer her!

Diane helped us with a new construction home from D R Horton. She was very responsive the whole time by email or phone call. She helped us work through a number or issues with the building company and made sure we got everything we paid for and the best deal. I would recommend her to my friends and family.

I worked with Diane during my relocation from Chicago to the Atlanta area. She was patient, knowledgeable and probably most of all FUN! Relocation can be stressful and Diane kept us motivated and positive through three different offers and ultimately found a home my husband and I both love and were able with Diane's help to secure a great offer and needed concessions on a foreclosure. I would strongly recommend Diane to anyone looking in the Atlanta area.
Ronald Cutone & Carolyn Satter
It was such a pleasure working with Diane. Even though it took us a year to sell our home in Alabama and find the perfect one here in Georgia, she never gave up on us. She was always there when we called and never made us feel like we were imposing. She even helped us with our house sale in Alabama whenever we had questions, since our agent there wasn’t much help. This was our fifth house purchase and by far the best experience. Can’t say enough about how terrific she is!!!
I began the home buying process with absolutely no knowledge of where to begin. Diane held my hand through the entire home buying experience. She not only provided me with the correct information, she also helped me find the appropriate lender. She was incredibly patient with me and made me very comfortable. Her personality is outstanding and I feel blessed to have met her. She made my dream come true. I will never forget her and will refer everyone to her.
Excellent service. She kept us informed during the short sale approval and answered all questions. Would use her again.
My husband is a realtor in Northern Virginia and we were very concerned about finding the right realtor to help us. Diane was it!! She listened to our needs and exceeded our expectations in every way. My husband says she is one of the best he has ever dealt with. Knowledgeable of the local market, she wasted no time in guiding us to a variety of properties that fit our budget and would meet our needs enabling us to select the right home quickly. We decided to build a new home and Diane was instrumental in negotiating a great price for us. Since we were still in Northern Virginia while the house was being built, Diane monitored the progress and kept us updated regularly through emails and pictures. She has a keen eye for detail and made a detailed list of builder faults during the initial walk thru. We cannot say enough good things about Diane and strongly recommend her to anyone looking for an exceptional realtor who is willing to go the extra mile for her clients.
Diane Menard was extremely helpful. We had a terrible realtor and she literally saved us. She helped us find our perfect home and everything was done with great time.
Diane is one of the most professional agents I have ever had the opportunity to work with and also have as a representative. My situation was unique since it involved the sale of my former home that my former wife and I had to dissolve or have refinanced. Diane was very professional in the handling of the matter. Not only was she very neutral in the matter, but also gave the options of the best possible solutions based on current market trends. Her experience greatly helped in the resolution. I highly recommend Diane to anyone looking to buy or sale a home. With her market insight and professionalism, Diane can handle any situation and provide the best solution while keeping your best interest in mind.

From day one early in 2010 Diane has been there for us with all the answers to our very many questions. As first time home buyers we were scared and really anxious. Diane was absolutely amazing through the entire process. We looked at multiple homes and some of the same ones twice and she was always there to show us the homes and help us understand what goes into buying a home. My husband and I could not have asked for a better realtor! I am so glad I found Diane, I don’t think anyone else would have done for us what she did I believe she goes above and beyond her call of duty! My husband and I recommend her to anyone!!!! Diane is truly an amazing person and we are very thankful for her! Now in August of 2011 over a year later from when we first met Diane, we are in our first home and are happier than we could ever be. All thanks to Diane Menard for her outstanding work!
Diane is amazing!! I could have not asked for a better realtor. She is very honest, well educated in real estate. This was my first home purchase and Diane made the experience go very smoothly. She was very informative and gave me all the information I needed to know and was able to answer any question on the spot in great detail. During the whole experience Diane made me feel like I was her only client and was willing to meet me anytime throughout the day to show properties. Because of her, I found an amazing home quickly that was just right for my daughter and I to live in. I could not speak more highly of her and I would suggest her to anyone I knew looking to purchase or sale a home. I will continue to use Diane for my real estate needs in the future.
I'm a first time home buyer, so the knowledge I had over real estate was slim. Mrs. Menard made the experience extremely easy and comforting. She made it a point to help me in every step of the way. Definitely recommended.
Diane Menard is the best in her field. She was professional, yet personal and very detailed in her work. She worked tiredlessly on the short sale of my home. It was a very challenging situation and she made it happen. She was very honest about the possibilities of the situation, even when it looked bleak. She called me while on vacation, at a family funeral, and while out of state at a seminar...always keeping me well informed. Diane Menard will give 110% to sell your home!

Our experience with Diane and RE/MAX has been great. Thanks to her hard work and dedication we were able to buy our dream home at a great price. She helped guide us through the confusing short sale process. She truly went above and beyond any agent in helping us to buy a home and sell our current home.
Melissa & Craig Roberts
Diane is truly the perfect Realtor. She makes it seem as though you are her only client and goes above and beyond to market properties, even homes that are not on the high-end. She is also great with showing homes. She knows what her client is looking for and is very patient. My husband and I wanted 2 totally different types of homes, but Diane was able to steer us towards one that made both of us happy. She has been great even after the purchase of our home with various issues that have come up. I also need to mention that her negotiating skills are tremendous! She was there for us every step of the way and we really appreciate her advice and help through the entire process.
When I first spoke to Diane Menard I was in a bad place with my house, I was behind on payments and owed more then the house was worth. Diane was still willing to meet with me and discuss my options and let me know what she could do for me. I was really impressed at how educated Diane was about the housing market and about the many options I did have, there was no question she could not answer for me in our first meeting. Soon my sign was up along with my Website, CD's and all the information books put forth to sell my home.
Since I was behind on payments we set-up my sale as a short sale, this proved to be anything but "short" for us due to the banks. Still Diane was there every step of the way letting me know what was going to happen, and taking care of those unpleasant talks with the banks for me. We did end up selling my home and largely in part to Diane helping when it came time to closing. I could not have asked for a more professional, well educated Realtor then Diane she went above and beyond to make the sale of my home a reality.
Thank you for all the hard work!
Belinda & Kenny Jackson
I had the pleasure of working with Diane Menard when I was trying to sell my house in Kennesaw, GA and living out-of-state. From the moment we signed the contract, she worked tirelessly to market my home. Within a couple of weeks I had an acceptable offer from a buyer. Throughout the entire selling process, she kept me updated of all pertinent details and always promptly returned by calls. I always had complete trust in Diane in handling the details and the sales transaction even though I was living in another state. I very highly recommend her to anyone who is either looking to buy or sell a home. Diane is a perfectionist who is in the top 3% of real estate professionals.

"Re: Sale of our home at 1769 McLain Rd - Acworth, GA 30101 November 2009
Purchase of our current home in Cumming, GA 30040 December 2009
We were very fortunate when we walked into Remax looking for a realtor and were given Diane Menard's name. With her skills and good advice we listed and sold our home within 30 days. She is very professional, knowledgeable, patient and personable. She used all the tools she had available and everything she did was quality.
She kept us informed every step of the way and did not leave any detail unfinished. She was always available to answer our questions and stayed by our side all the way! She also helped us find our current home and negotiate a fair price. We will definitely use her next time we need to sell a home and will refer her to anyone we know that needs an A+ Realtor. Thank you Diane!
Patrick & Sarah Harbin
During the entire process, it felt like we were Diane's only clients. She returned every call, resolved every issue, and made time for us whenever we needed it. She made the homebuying process much less stressful than I ever thought possible.
