When you want to sell your home you have a choice in real estate agents. This endorsement might help your decision as you want an agent who knows the market, knows what it takes to get your home ready to sell, and knows how to keep you calm during the time from listing your home to closing day. Equally important is someone who knows how to work with other agents and maintain your homes value even when there may be new listings populating on a daily, weeldy or monthly basis. Diane Tatum is someone I highly recommend as she has the above qualities and throughout the process of selling our home was always easy going and someone who consistently maintained the focus and outlook necessary for such an important time!

Selling a home is an intricate process. Having Diane’s guidance and expertise is something that is paramount to anyone looking to sell their home. Diane consistently communicates either by phone, text or email and when you need clarification, answers or straight feedback about any situation along the way, I can without hesitation say Diane gets the nod for being proactive and excellent at maintaining open lines of communication which is extremely vital in this process.

Diane is an easy choice if you want someone kind, caring, intelligent and pays attention to the details. I am extremely particular and detail oriented and Diane from day one told me exactly what to do to get my home a step beyond the competition. She immediately can look at your home and pick out the exterior and interior portions of your home that need attention so you take the lead with homes your are competing with in the market.

Last, Diane is a joy to work with and is someone I recommend, as she is a proven performer. I cold called her as I did my research and saw she has some of the highest sales in our neighborhood. It is no secret Paulding County has massive growth and is undervalued compared to many counties surrounding it. You need her, as she will get your home sold quickly and easily while getting you the best price compared to other agents. I spent the time researching her compared to other agents and I’m so glad I did! She knows the real estate business and I highly recommend you give her an opportunity for one of the biggest financial sales you will be having during your life. Make the call!

Reputation of Knowing the Market
Reputation of Knowing the Market

We contacted Diane Tatum when we were ready to sell our home. We selected Diane because of her reputation of knowing the market that we were in. She came in with tons of research about our community. She proved herself to be very knowledgeable, a great communicator, extremely hard working and a great person. At one point she interrupted an out of country vacation to walk us through a lengthy negotiating process. We were extraordinary happy to have her in our corner. Her expertise gave us so much comfort and she brought us a great buyer in a very difficult market. We couldn’t  be any more  pleased with our decision to go with Diane. I am extremely thankful for her and I can’t think of anyone I’d rather be in my corner through the home selling process.

Alan and I want to express our deep appreciation for your tireless work in selling our property. You are very knowledgeable in your field and we would never think of hiring anyone else as our realtor. You are very personable and feel more like a friend than just our agent.

She is always knowledgeable about the market, has excellent communication skills, and she is always available to talk to, which are all great assets!

She is the best!

She Gets You to the Closing Table
She Gets You to the Closing Table

Diane Tatum was referred to Shirley and me by our good friend, Earl Smith. She was highly recommended by Earl as being very professional and aggressive in his dealings with her. We hired Diane as our real estate agent due to her thorough, specific and excellent presentation.

She immediately met with us to suggest staging ideas and had a video presentation of our house developed for her sales efforts. She left within two hours to formulate her plan. As she left, she placed the usual “for sale” sign in the front yard. About an hour later, she called and surprised us with a very desirable contract for 97% of our asking price. We agreed, and the rest is history.

Demonstrating excellent technical skills, she guided us through the due­ diligence, appraisal and settlement procedures to a timely closing. This was all done in a positive and reassuring manner.

Diane’s strong people skills coupled with her knowledge of the sales process enabled us to minimize the inherent stress normally involved.

She “gets you to the closing table”!

You certainly get my highest recommendation
You certainly get my highest recommendation
Dear Diane,

Just want you to know how much I appreciate everything you did to get my home sold – and so quickly!  I know we started this process months ago and, due to some unexpected events on my part, we had to put the sale on hold.  You never pressured me to sell, and told me to contact you when I was ready.
When I called you to let you know that my home was ready to list, you responded immediately.  You met with me within a couple of days, took wonderful pictures, which showcased my home beautifully, and had it online and flyers ready very quickly.  You put the For Sale sign up on a Saturday and by Monday we had two offers, mainly due to your great pictures and description of my home.  Everything happened so fast, which was a blessing, but I was already working out of town, so it was also very stressful.  Thanks to you, you kept in touch constantly, took care of many things that I could not because I was out of town, such as meeting a contractor at my home to repair a door – you stayed there until you were satisfied that it was repaired correctly, and you even paid him!
I can’t thank you enough for all of your help and guidance.  You certainly made a stressful situation bearable, and you took very good care of me and my home.
You are the best and you certainly get my highest recommendation.
Jeanette Warren

 

 

She is a Go Getter
She is a Go Getter!
We were initially introduced to Diane from the buyers side during an acreage purchase.  We found the experience to be highly professional with excellent with clear communication.  After our positive contract experience and an extensive search we decided to work with her on a separate project as a seller.

She is a go getter!  She has lived up to and exceeded our expectations.  We have been pleased with her communication with quick response times.  I can reach her any time and answers to our questions are quickly and accurately provided.

The advertising, agent open house showings, and professional photographs have been above top notch.  We went into this without an agent not really knowing what to expect and Diane made it a very smooth transition.  We have been involved with numerous real estate experiences throughout the country and have been absolutely thrilled with her!  Thank you, Diane!

A True Professional
A True Professional
I am writing to thank you for everything you did while representing me as my real estate agent.  When my friend suggested that I contact you to sell my home, I had no idea what a fantastic choice I made when I hired you.  From the beginning of our relationship you were there for me and quickly exceeded my expectations.   I cannot recall one time that I called you and you did not answer the phone or fail to respond to my emails.  Diane, you made the sale of my home easy and your “can do” attitude is awesome.

When the time came for me to purchase a home, you were wonderful.  Every time I called and asked you to show me a house, you always quickly responded and gave me a grand tour of a potential home. Once I finally made a choice you stood beside me during the process and worked hard to get me the deal I wanted.  I recall speaking with you on the weekends and late evenings working out all of the fine details of the contract, inspection and financing.  I loved the quote you always told me “I am here to make sure you are happy”.  I will say without doubt that you made me happy and I don’t believe I could have made it through the process without you.

I will close by saying that you are a true professional and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who wants to sell their home or purchase a new home.  Diane, you are the greatest!!! Thanks for all you have done to “make me happy”!

Smart, Savvy Realtor
Smart, Savvy Agent
Dear Diane, Just a note to let you know how much Tom and I appreciate you, and have enjoyed working with you. Your services are superb!! To anyone looking for an Atlanta area real estate agent, I would say:

If you are looking for a smart, savvy real estate agent to represent your interests in residential, commercial, or investment real estate in the greater Atlanta area, look no further than Diane Tatum of Keller Williams Signature Realty.

Diane is an experienced, results-oriented individual who is knowledgeable about the Atlanta area in general, as well as proficient in the areas of contracts, short-sales, and foreclosures.  My husband and I were looking for an agent who is energetic and creative when we were forced to sell our beautiful estate home due to moving out of state.  After previous disappointing experiences, we noticed homes selling in our neighborhood had one name attached:  Diane Tatum.  After hiring Diane, I had finally found someone who enjoys her job, and takes pride in providing customer satisfaction.  Our home sold quickly, and Diane followed each detail of the transaction diligently to completion.

Diane Tatum approaches her real estate business as though she is working for herself!  Diane is continuing to represent us in a variety of real estate investments, and we trust her advice and judgement.  Rest easy, and hire Diane to work for you! Cindy & Tom Formicola

 

The House of our Dreams
The House of our Dreams
Our Family had lived in West Cobb previously so when we decided to return to this area from the West Coast, close friends referred us to Diane Tatum.  Diane discussed our wants and needs with regards to the type of house we wanted to purchase and immediately started looking for a match.  We mentioned that we would consider a short sale home, but were nervous about the seemingly complicated process.

Within a few weeks, Diane had found us the home of our dreams in a highly desirable neighborhood.  She also personally managed the entire short sale purchasing process while we were transitioning from WA to GA.

We would not be living in our dream house today if it were not for Diane’s knowledge and tenacity.

As my husband commented at our closing, Diane is the first realtor we have ever worked with who earned every cent of her commission – and this is our 4th home purchase.  I would recommend her to any family who is looking for a truly dedicated real estate professional to assist them in buying or selling a home. Nora & Eric Jacobsen

 

Diane Has Earned My Confidence
Diane has earned my Confidence
I have worked with Diane Tatum for years.  While frequently approached by other brokers, Diane is the best fit for my needs.  Meeting with others I have seen through their polished pitches or scripts and have chosen what I believe a better partner.  Diane’s skill, knowledge, and communication ability with the discerning buyer or seller make for a wise choice.  Her background of family construction business, her eye to detail from experience in retail/management of multiple Macy’s locations, important communication ability with appraisers understanding how they work, and her personal experience of living in a wealthy country club, and her real estate experience success have all influenced her to be aware of the needs of buying or selling high end homes.  Diane has combined these traits as well as her law background allowing her to be a savvy successful communicator in the high end market.  She can talk the talk among the best of them and knows the walk.  She has earned my confidence and I believe she will negotiate in my best interest, buying or selling. Bryan Alexander

 

Excellent Customer Service
Excellent Customer Service
We wanted to thank you again for helping us sell our home in Acworth.  Your knowledge of the real estate market and your negotiation skills were extremely helpful throughout the process.  As promised, you provided excellent customer service, and it was such a pleasure getting to know you and doing business with you.  It’s easy to understand why you are a top-ranked real estate agent, and we wish you continued success in helping others sell their homes. Shelia & Wayne Clinton

 

A Meticulous Professional

Diane Tatum is a meticulous professional who will search to find just the right property, or make the sale happen.  She was thorough and always available for questions or information.  I felt she worked for me in all the negotiations, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. Rhonda Small

 

The Only Agent I Would Consider
The Only Agent I would Consider
I have known Diane both personally and professionally for over 10 years, and she is the only agent I would consider for selling my home.  She always looks after the “details” and is tireless in taking all steps necessary to ensure a sale and a smooth closing.  Diane actually sold my personal home several years ago and it was such a pleasant and smooth process.  Since that time I have referred her to several friends.  All of them had the same experience as well, with solid offers and closed sales.

If you are looking for an agent to go the distance with you and provide personal service with a good end result, Diane would be the one. Linda Castle

 

Diane Went Above & Beyond
Diane Went Above & Beyond
Diane, Ray and I really appreciate the work you have done for us.  We feel we would never have been able to get this home without your help.  You worked overtime, above and beyond anyone else getting this home for us.  It is our dream home we feel the Lord had in mind for us and with your help we were able to purchase it with very little stress.  We really appreciate your persistence getting this property for us.  We are also thrilled that you are selling our old home.  You have done a great job in getting the word out that the property is for sale.  Thank you so much.  We consider you our new friend and our only Real Estate Agent.  You are very professional in all of our dealing with you. Barbara & Ray Hill

 

I Couldn't Be Happier
I Couldn't Be Happier
Diane did an outstanding job this past summer in helping us with the purchase of our property.  She was patient in her approach and wasn’t pushy or overbeating in her pursuit to make the deal happen for both parties involved.  She put in a ton of work and always approached me with a smile, even when I was getting cold feet.  I couldn’t be happier with her professionalism and timely manner.. Jennifer and Adam Everett

 

We Could Not Have Done It Without Her
We Could Not Have Done it Without Her
We have known Diane for a very long time, and she has always proven to be just as great a real estate agent as she is a friend.  Diane assisted us in making the difficult decision to sell our lake house, and then fulfilled the task of selling it.  With her help, personally and economically, we concur that it was one of the smartest decisions we could have made.  We could not have done it without Diane. She always does her job efficiently and completely, while she is an absolute delight to be around and work with.  I’m so thankful to have this astounding businesswoman in my life, and also call her one of our dear friends. Jim & Patti Darling

 

Diane Tatum is an Outstanding Realtor
Diane Tatum is an Outstanding Realtor
Diane Tatum is an outstanding realtor.  She’s a remarkable individual who has worked tirelessly to market our home as well as help us find just the perfect new home.  On our very first meeting she came prepared with a complete market analysis, competitive listings in the area and current market trends.  Diane’s follow through and attention to detail has far exceeded our expectations.  When she held an Open House for our home, she drew a crowd of 60+ realtors and brokers, which reflects the type of influence and social networking she maintains.  And she is always accessible – quick to respond anytime of day.  And always on time – if she says 9:00, she is pulling up at 8:59.  It’s also a perk that she studied law when negotiating some of the finer details of real estate contracts.

Besides all that, she’s a lot of fun to be around!  We recommend Diane without reservation! Debbie & David Turner

 

If You Want Someone You Can Trust...You Want Diane!
If You Want Someone You Can Trust...You Want Diane!
Friends, if you are thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, may I suggest that you list with Diane Tatum?  While it might not seem that the listing agent matters, let me tell you – it does.

Not all situations are alike.  You may need to sell quickly, you may want tot get the hightest price even if it takes a bit longer, you might want to do improvements to reduce sales time but aren’t sure what will matter.  Trust Diane!  She is patient and will guide you along the way.  Not only is Diane our realtor, she is also our friend now too.  If you want someone you can trust…you want Diane.  She’s the best!! Stacey & Chris Halyard

 

She Really is a Super Hero
She Really is a Super Hero
Diane Tatum is such and AMAZING person.  She is one of the most giving people I know.  Diane has mentored others, worked short sale problems out for other agents (with -O- compensation asked from her) donated her time, money and expertise to new agents, donated her time and money to our charity and given pep talks to lift spirits and encourage others.  She has such a positive attitude all while dealing with some challenges that would make most people retreat in a funk and cry.  She walks the walk, and all the while never missing a chance to be her radiant, brilliant self.  She really is a SUPER HERO to me and I know Keller Williams West Cobb is very lucky to have her as one of their agents. (top producing I might add 🙂 !) Melania Saltarella

 

Diane Truly Works as an Extension of her Customers
Diane Truly Works as an Extension of her Customers
I have been associated with Diane Tatum for over 5 years and had multiple buy and sell transactions which Diane helped secure.  Her professionalism, can do attitude and tenacity helped our family secure sales in a very tough market that would not have occurred with any other agent.  Our last house was offered, accepted and closed within a 10 day time frame when no one thought it could be done.  Only Diane could have made this deal come together and happen.  Diane truly works as an extension of her customers needs and wants, always representing the client and helping get the best deal to be had.  I can recommend and have on many occasions to anyone who is looking to buy or sell property in the greater Atlanta area, she is without question the gold standard for real estate agents.Kurt Topp

 

Nothing Short of Amazing
Nothing Short of Amazing
Our experience with Diane Tatum was nothing short of amazing.  Because of her professional commitment and dedication we were able to successfully close on an extremely complicated short sale home purchase.  Due to an out of state seller who had filed for bankruptcy and had discharged his home loans, our purchase of this short sell home took over 6 months.  There were many hoops to jump through such as saving our home we wanted to buy from going into foreclosure, along with a lot of “i’s” to dot and “t’s” to cross.  Through it all Diane never stopped pushing the envelope to ensure deal closure.  She also helped us connect with a mortgage company who reflected her commitment and determination to help us achieve our goal.  We are forever grateful to Diane for helping us secure our future in this home.John Burch and Voniece Matthews

 

Very Friendly and Knowledgable
Very Friendly and Knowledgable
Diane helped my family in the house hunt from Delaware to Georgia.  We made a few trips down and she always had a list of homes that met our criteria (which were a lot).  She found us a home that was beyond our wishlist and in our price range.  We were so excited when we went through the home, which was just coming on the market.  It was beyond perfect for our family.  Due to Diane’s years of experience, she helped us with the offer process so that we didn’t have to stress with competing offers.  Since we were in Delaware, our family was unable to be there for all of the inspections.  Diane never minded being at the new home to help the inspection process.  We worked with her for many months and she helped us each step of the way.   She is very friendly and knowledgable and we would highly recommend her.  Al and Renae Boulogne
