Working with Diane was an absolute joy and delight. I can honestly say that we wouldn’t have a house without her. We picked the absolute worst time of year and climate to buy a home, yet we never felt like we were lacking in support. If you’re looking for some to not just work for or with you, but to champion you, then look no further. I am beyond grateful that I called Diane after seeing her listing for a different client. No matter the curve ball (and there were a few!) she always pushed and worked even harder for us. I hope to meet more people in the future with her work ethic and skill. We’re over the moon to bring our two sweet babies home this winter because of Diane!
It is without any reservation that we highly recommend Diane Blackwell as your real estate agent.
She handled our recent new home purchase in Traveler’s Rest, SC. She is a professional of the highest level - knowledgeable, thorough, committed to her clients, reliable and honest, who surpassed all our expectations. Beyond being a professional in her field, she is also personable and a good person. Diane was easy to work with. She was always available for questions or concerns – even after we closed, she helped us navigate some things in our new home. We were moving from NYS to SC with limited time to actually come down to SC and view homes. Diane always made herself available to us – on our schedule. It took us 5 months to find “just the right house and area” for us.
Diane was patient and understanding and never made us feel like we were an inconvenience. She was always encouraging and assured us we would “find the right house for us.” And, we did.

Diane, Thank you so much for all your hard work and encouragement through our buying and selling process. You are exactly the realtor we needed. You are excellent at your job, and we hope for your continued success. So thankful for you and your friendship.
I wanted to say that it has been a great experience working with Diane. She’s nice and really understanding. She listens to your concerns and helps you walk through the process of understanding of everything, from your concerns, your wants and needs and also going out of her way to finding out something that you asked. I know she has worked day in and out for us to make sure we have the smoothest and best experience through this time. It was hard at first with how the market is but she always told us to keep your head up and the house will come to us. Sometimes it’s just not meant to be. I would recommend her to anyone that is trying to find a house because she always finds a way to make things work. From her communicating with the mortgage company to communicating with the seller if she has to. 100 or 10 star review.
We have really enjoyed working with you and greatly appreciate your flexibility and high level of availability as we progressed through the home buying process from a distance. The market conditions during this time were really difficult and your knowledge of the area and your willingness to spend the time with us to understand what we were looking for made a huge difference in putting us on a path to success. Thanks again and I would happily recommend your services to any home buyer that asks.
Diane Blackwell navigates the Real Estate landscape like a BOSS! Prior to meeting and after speaking with her on the phone she created a custom search and provided access to a collaboration web page that easily displayed all properties that met my needs, which allowed us to interact and narrow down properties. This was astonishingly helpful in sorting the wheat from the chaff. I was coming from out of state to look at property in Greenville. While this is a daunting task in itself; the current seller’s market, in which at least a dozen offers are dropping within hours of a home listing, makes the home buying process sickening. Diane savored the opportunity to bring a VA loan to this seller’s market party and truly dominated the battle space. It was her genuine charm, care for my needs as a home buyer, tenacious ability to juggle tight windows of opportunity, and unrivaled knowledge of the Greenville area and real estate space that secured the win. With only a few days to get a contract before I had to return to Virginia, Diane plotted a course through overanxious and inflated listings and offers to land me a sensational house (actually under my intended budget) that flawlessly met my needs. Her work after securing an accepted contract was also stunning. Diane navigated each hiccup of the home buying process with a prompt and calming phone call to one of her network of professionals to rebuff the tedium that home buying has morphed into; this is especially true of the VA loan. Diane seemingly has an armada of local specialists at her disposal, all with the like-minded goal of ensuring my best interests are met. You simply don't get that kind of service and genuine care out of any agent. Diane is nothing short of the quintessential top-tier agent in a business where many are "good" but few are simply "outstanding". She was available literally 24/7 and I ABSOLUTELY recommend Diane Blackwell if you're looking for an agent in the Greenville, SC area.
I worked with Diane on purchasing my first home. She was super patient with my anxiety and has been here every step of the way!!! I highly recommend her! She is genuine and makes you feel so at ease in what can be a stressful process!
When we decided to sell our home, I reached out to a colleague and friend of mine who has worked with several realtors in her prior job. I asked her to give my information to the best realtor she knew. We had reached out to some realtors previously, but we just did not feel like they were a good fit. I wanted to make sure that if we were going to trust someone with this job, they were the best. Little did we know, Diane really is the best. She has truly been the biggest blessing during this process.
Within ten minutes of having our information, Diane called me. She was on vacation, but she made time to introduce herself and set up a time to meet when she got home. She has been so easy to work with, and I do not feel like we have had to lift a finger throughout the entire process. She has taken care of every piece of paperwork, every concern from the buyers, and every question we have had. We have never bought or sold a home, so we had lots of questions!
Our home had a full asking price offer within 48 hours of it being listed. She even helped us to nail down the right asking price. We listed our home in early September, and we will close on the home on October 6th. The entire process has been smooth sailing, and we could not be more grateful for Diane’s hand in making it the best selling experience.
Diane has been an amazing communicator. She is organized. She is as sweet as she can be, and she constantly affirmed the work we were doing to get the home ready to sell.
Our entire experience was better than we could have ever hoped or imagined, and I have already started recommending Diane to all of our friends and family. If I ever need a realtor again, I will not hesitate to go with Diane.
Working with Diane Blackwell has been a great experience for me. I moved across the country and she was so helpful. Diane did video walk-throughs with me so I could see the properties I was interested in. She was always available and responsive even though we were in different time zones. She helped me through every step of the process and got all my questions answered so quickly. Diane went through the whole inspection report with me and was very knowledgeable. She even provided me the names and phone numbers of all the utility companies I needed to contact as well. I would highly recommend Diane to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home. Her experience, professionalism, knowledge, and communication skills are all top-notch!
Diane was wonderful to work with and great at communicating throughout the entire home buying process. Her enthusiasm and skill set was very appreciated, and her willingness to assist wherever needed was extremely valued. She is truly an asset, and I was very fortunate to have worked with her.
We have a friend in the Real Estate Business. You will, too, if you choose Diane Blackwell as your Real Estate Agent. Seemingly too sweet to succeed in a very tough business. She never tired of pursuing our best interests and keeping us informed. She got us the house we wanted on our first offer. Then she saved us thousands by insisting the seller make needed repairs. That’s Diane, sweet but very effective.
