Client Testimonials


From Ted & Susan Krempa

We appreciate the time and effort you put into purchasing and selling our homes. We couldn’t have done it without your real estate expertise. You were always there when we needed you.

Our home was beautifully staged for the open houses. We especially liked the matted signs highlighting special features in our home that might have gone unnoticed.

With your relaxed and professional demeanor, we knew we were in good hands and that our best interests were always your main concern.

Again, thank you for everything, and we would most definitely recommend your services to those interested in securing you as their real estate agent.



From Jeff Hester:

I certainly like getting the data and your expert opinions.  I don’t like agents who only tell you what you want to hear.  Your style is appreciated!


From Justin Civitts:

I have worked with Chuck and Diane on three separate transactions over the past three years.  Each time they diligently worked on my behalf to get the best price in the market and timely closings.  I would recommend them to any potential buyers or sellers that are looking for a competitive edge in the marketplace.  The Reilings have a knowledge and understanding of what it takes to facilitate a purchase or sale in an otherwise stressful time. 


From Evelyn Turner:

Dear Diane,

I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other clients.

"Diane sold our home but she did so much more than that. She made recommendations on what we needed to do before putting it on the market, including furniture placement! She was always available to us and advised us well throughout the entire process and was just a delight to work with during a stressful time. She's so obviously good at what she does that, when our buyers needed to sell and relocate to Olympia a few years later, they chose Diane to represent them. That speaks volumes about her professionalism and ability to get the job done."


From Mark Stephens:

Chuck changed my opinion about the value of a Realtor. He was our buying agent and spent considerable time arranging very focused tours. After four weekend trips and Chuck's market knowledge, we knew what we wanted and where to look in the Seattle area. Chuck discovered a re-listed house that was a bargain - a beautiful newer house in a great neighborhood - exactly what we wanted. He helped us through some tough negotiations - a new heating system and a negotiated reduction for a new roof. After we moved in, we had a problem with water in the crawl space, missed by the house inspector. Chuck assisted us with some difficult conversations with the inspection company and ultimately helped us get the company to fix the problem. His follow through in every area is impeccable and he is a delight to work with.


From Doug Sayed:

My wife and I hired Diane to help us do multiple real estate transactions. With her advice, expert guidance and personable approach, we were able to do three separate real estate transactions in about three months (we sold two condos, and then bought a house). 

After everything closed and we moved, Diane and her husband catered our house warming party at our house - it was great!

I highly recommend Diane, and will definitely use her again when we need a real estate professional in the future.


From Myra Rothenberg:

Dear Diane,

I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other clients.

"Diane is very honest about what value is in the world of real estate. She will entertain all manner of suggestions from her clients, but mostly, she knows what is up and we go with her best instincts. We have had Diane buy and sell several houses for us and we recommended her to our kids who have bought their current house from her. She has taken care of many of our friend's needs, too. We consider her a close friend and would hire her again."


From Leroy Naasz:

Dear Chuck and Diane,

My head is still reeling from the whirlwind of activity that took place in the last two months.  Not only did you pitch in loading the trucks and remove the old carpet, but a myriad of details involved with moving such as piano movers, loaders, refuse truck, etc. 

It's still mind boggling how you put my home on the Market April 9th and sold it the same week for more than I dreamed of.  Closing was May 8th and the money was in my bank by May 10th. 

Thank you so much for everything.  We'll keep in touch.

Warm regards,

Subject: Real Estate Agent Referral 

Hello All,

I wanted to send out a referral of a real estate team I have worked with for years on the Eastside. I have personally known Diane for 10 years now and have been completely satisfied with the work she has done for us with the purchase of 2 homes. If you ever need a specialist for buying or selling, one with plenty of real estate experience and complete honesty, look them up or refer them to a friend. You will be very happy working with both Chuck and Diane.




From: Tony and Tani Fisher:

Dear Chuck and Diane, 

Tanya and I want to thank you for helping us sell our home. The process you defined (market analysis, pricing, document preparation, negotiating strategy, deal calendar, addendum preparation) and referrals to various professionals from handymen, carpet cleaners, to pest control experts was invaluable. Thanks to you everyone knew the status of the transaction and next steps which kept the deal on schedule. You helped us spot problems and with each one quickly provided creative suggestions to overcome at least two potential "deal-killers" (current tenants and pest infestation). Last but not least, given we live out of State you had to be our eyes and ears with the buyers, various service providers and escrow. You proved your trustworthiness, competence and commitment. Thanks to you our transaction closed as originally scheduled and in 37 days. 

Tony and Tanya Fisher


From Kevin and Susan Gosling:

Dear Chuck and Diane,

We really appreciate all your advice and professionalism during our recent investment property purchase.  You made it a very good experience all around.  We certainly will refer others to you!


Thank you for everything!

Kevin, Susan & Kate (2 months) Gosling
