We write with great compliments for Diana Chaplin and her work with us during our recent home sale. Diana is an expert marketer and guided us wisely in both the timing of putting our house on the market and pricing our home to its optimal value. With a keen eye, she helped us stage our home and arranged for beautiful interior and exterior pictures. Thus, our home sold quickly and we achieved our goals within a short period of time. Diana managed the entire process so smoothly, taking care of every detail and patiently answering all our questions and adeptly negotiating on our behalf. She always gave us her undivided attention, making us feel as though we were her top priority. As a native Weston resident with a long family history in the area, Diana has deep knowledge of Weston and its nuances. She intimately understands every neighborhood and how to work with the Town of Weston officials. Should you decide to invest your time with Diana, you will undoubtedly be pleased with the results!

Diana Chaplin is the best agent in Weston. She's intelligent, thoughtful and patient. She is very knowledgable about Weston, the history of town, different neighborhoods and school system. She is very polite, attentive, and not pushy.I feel she's more like a close friend to me than an agent. Highly recommend her service.

Diana is the most knowledgeable and strategic Weston-based realtor with whom we have worked in the almost 30 years we lived in Weston, during which time we lived in (bought, re-modeled, and sold) 3 different homes. Weston is a very distinct real estate market, and at the high-end of the market in particular it is extremely helpful to be familiar with land use and property development in the town. Diana is unique in that she diligently attends meetings of the Weston Planning Board and thus has an intimate knowledge of the regulations, trends, and professionals (town officials, developers, attorneys, civil engineers, etc) involved in Weston real estate development. For our most recent home sale, Diana crafted a masterful strategy with: - thorough pre-marketing (target research, staging with a professional designer, etc), - careful market positioning (pricing, timing, key messages), - tasteful and attractive formal and informal publicity (including state-of-the-art exterior drone video shots incorporated into a custom webpage), and finally, - courteous and effective business relations in managing and negotiating with prospective buyers and their agents. As a result, we had multiple offers within days of listing the property and sold it for well over our asking price. If you are looking for a realtor to help you buy or sell a special property in Weston, I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Diana Chaplin. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I did not end up listing with Diana, because I inquired about renting my house but I was impressed with a level of her local knowledge communication skills and humility. She responded to my inquiry right away had an very honest talk about my listing and expectations. She possesses a very deep knowledge in the local market and understands many nuances. At the end of the day, she convinced me not to rent the house and proceed with selling for which I am forever grateful. With this knowledge and honesty I know you will be in good hands Less ... More

Helped me buy home
I was not expecting to buy a new home in 2013; however, due to unforeseen circumstances, I entered the market with the hope of closing on a new property within 2 months. I cannot possibly say enough about how helpful and supportive Diana was in helping me through the process. We started by talking about what I knew I definitely did and did not want in the new house. There were many questions that Diana asked that I hadn't even considered. Based on our discussion, she ruled out homes that she knew would just not be a good fit so that I didn't waste my time. We saw approximately 8 houses the first day. It was a wonderful preview of the town so that I could become comfortable with the current market. We went out a second afternoon to do a second showing on one home and see a few other new homes. We then followed up with second and third showings. I was amazed at how she frequently knew the details of the homes better than the listing broker. She often remembered the architect, builder, etc. from years past when the house was previously on the market. Within a week, I had made a decision and felt comfortable making an offer. Diana was wonderful in giving me guidance through the negotiation process, but also allowed me to make the final decisions without pressure. She made the voluminous paperwork seem simple. There were a few small problems with the inspection. She knew immediately who I should call to obtain additional information and was wonderful at helping me to gain access to the home to make sure that everything could be resolved. I began my search on October 4 and actually closed by mid-November. I have been in the house for 7 months. I must say that it has been a really good choice for my family. I can't imagine that anyone could have been better at helping me with this process. Diana's kind demeanor, knowledge of the home buying process and passion for the community made it as easy as possible. I would highly recommend her to a friend. Less ... More

Diana responded to my on line request within about 15 minutes of submission, and she remained as responsive throughout the process. After interviewing several realtors, it was Diana's most-thorough evaluation of the market and my home's pros and cons that solidified the partnership. Great direction was given to staging the property, incredible pictures (including the best time of day to incorporate the best light) of the rooms and property, having my home as the featured property of the week in the local newspaper led to four offers in four days. Diana didn't stop there: she helped tremendously through some complicated post-inspection issues to insure the closing was smooth and on time. Less ... More

Diana has an intimate knowledge of the planning board laws and the regulations of Weston. This level understanding is so important if you are buying or selling. She knows Weston history, neighborhoods, and schools. She was always in contact with me (this was a long distance sale) giving me immediate feedback, answering questions and helping process the potential buyers thoughts. She gave insightful information leading the process to a successful sale. I never felt pushed but rather informed and supported in my decisions. She was respectful of all parties and of the property she was representing. After interview three other agents I choose Diana and was so pleased with her professional skills. I give a 110% recommendation to Diana as an agent of choice. Less ... More

Diana Chaplin was the ideal representative for this house. It was in the family for many years, and Diana came to know the property and the family in 1998, many years before it sold this year. She cared about our family and cared about a respectful disposition of the house and property. Diana's knowledge of the properties in Weston and of the people -- builders, lawyers, government agents, etc -- made her uniquely capable of selling our house with a compassionate yet thoroughly professional approach. It was our pleasure to work with her. Less ... More

Diana is an expert agent with deep local knowledge of the submarkets with specific insight into what is happening in each neighborhood. She often knows of properties before they come to market and has credibility with sellers. Her advice is to the point and extremely accurate. She is the best broker with whom I have ever worked.

If the real estate industry had a term similar to "doctors' doctor", Diana would sure be in that elite category! Weston is a tricky market - to be effective, a broker must not only be willing to work hard, but also be an "insider" with the right relationships and understanding of how to effectively navigate the many complex nuances of this town's ecosystem. Diana gets things done in the most elegant and efficient way, and, no matter how busy she may be at a particular moment, she always makes you feel that you are her one and only, most important client! Diana had delivered multiple prospective buyers at the absolute worst point of the market and tackled every obstacle with utmost professionalism and dedication, ensuring timely and stress-free closing. Bravo Diana! Less ... More
