Testimonials

“After living in Evansville, Indiana for 65 of my 67 years, it was more than a little stressful to consider moving 300 miles away, when even moving across town can be anxiety-provoking. Diane’s friendly & professional demeanor truly eased my tension as she helped me find and buy the house I did.  She also gave me the names of plumbers, heating & air people etc. to make my adjustment here even easier”.
