“Diane Dando was extremely helpful in helping us sell our house. From January the house was first on the market and a conditional offer picked up the house was out of level so we needed to get the house releveled to sell. Diane kept communication during this stressful process for us and made it a lot easier to get the house fixed and back on the market again. Even through the house being back on the market during lockdown she made private house viewings during level 3 every day for a week and a half to get enough people through the home. We are extremely thankful we chose Total Realty and we have achieved a great purchase price in the end. Thank you very much Diane.”
