Client Testimonials

Diana is a warm, outgoing and very capable realtor. She immediately sets you at ease during the first meeting. I was very impressed with Diana’s knowledge of the realty world (the information can be very overwhelming!) Diana patiently explains the process as many times as necessary to insure everyone understands. I was most impressed with her referrals to outside sources. Diana had excellent recommendations for: stager, mover, house clean out and house cleaner. She marketed our home very well, gave us great advice and also calmed our nerves during the many steps involved in selling your home. I would highly recommend Diana Hodgson! marytheresawylie

Diana is an outstanding agent! She sold my moms home in a week! She is the most dedicated, caring person I’ve ever met! My husband and I loved her! I would give her a 100 gold stars if I could!! andreal27

Wow. Diana is such a hard worker and was unbelievably dedicated to helping us find the right home as quickly as possible, We moved to PA from KS and we sold our house in KS in one day. With us being homeless Diana dedicated herself to finding us a home as quickly as possible. She focused herself on learning what I wanted in a home and what my wife wanted in a home and somehow was able to perform a miracle and find the perfect fit. During the search Diana shared so much about the new area we were looking to move to so we had a head start on learning about our surroundings. Where to eat, where to shop, things to see. Diana ROCKS !!!!! besafe12

Diana gets 5 stars in all categories from me. She was available, professional, friendly and knowledgeable during the search and purchase processes. Her extensive experience in the real estate business and specifically in this market were pivotal in my successful purchase of the right house for me. She referred me to many helpful contacts during the whole moving process. I enthusiastically recommend Diana – she will help you find and purchase your house! ibbeth r

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Diana. She made the dreaded moving process much easier through her professionalism and insight. Diana took the “overwhelming” aspect out of moving and turned it into a very positive experience. burkey1 Also: Attentive – ALWAYS returned calls/texts Attitude – extremely positive, with a great sense of humor A+ – just a super nice person

Diana is a first rate professional who went way beyond her call of duty! She quickly grasped the type of property I was looking for and saved me a lot of precious time. I was impressed with how well she knew the area and with her help and guidance, I was able to find the perfect home. I would work with her again in a heartbeat! Thanks Diana!! cayeabern

Diana has helped me with three real estate transactions, including both buying and selling homes. In every case, she’s been professional, responsive, and fair, with a high degree of integrity. She had resources — equally competent and honest contractors — at the ready to make the little details that can hold up a sale flow smoothly. Even better, she took what could have been a very stressful event and made it fun — all three times! I can’t recommend her and her services highly enough. spiritofhealing2012

Our experience with Diana was excellent. Her positive energy was reassuring. We would definitely recommend her to friends. Because of her we got a great price on our house. sbdesign3

We were impressed with Diana’s experience and approach to helping us sell our home from the first meeting. She had an excellent plan for the sale process and was instrumental in helping us through every step. She went above and beyond to alleviate any issues or concerns we had along the way and gave us peace of mind in what is a stressful time for anyone. The result was that we sold our house within hours of it officially going on the market. Additionally, while helping us wrap up the final details to close the sale, Diana helped our daughter locate the perfect apartment. She is amazing and we highly recommend her. tjberndt815

We have used Diana Hodgson for both a purchase and a sale and, in both cases, she was the consummate professional. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, she is very personable, understanding and always ready to answer questions and help in any way. We could not have had a better real estate agent. She was truly a pleasure to work with. Mary Anne McGlyn and Dennis Farrara

Diana was my agent when I bought a property in the Bethlehem area. The process went smoothly. When it was time to sell, I turned again to Diana and she walked me through the process from the other side. She held open houses and made the sale go through smoothly. She has connections to electricians, plumbers, HVAC, and probably all other trades to maintain the property and certainly if there are issues getting the home ready for sale. I’ve known Diana a long time and it was a real pleasure to work with her. nelspederson

Outstanding agent, helped my wife and I with our move from NYC to PA. Diana’s intimate knowledge of the market was invaluable in both identifying properties and making sure it’s a good deal. Diana stands out as an agent who sees her clients as more than a commission, her friendly and outgoing demeanor makes her a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond consistently, helping us do our due diligence and work with the sellers. One thing that Diana does differently than most agents is she will actually tell you her opinion of a property & it’s price, unless you’re a local agent or investor that info is priceless and can prevent making a poor decision. If your looking for a low pressure, sharp and personable realtor then Diana is a “no-brainer”, trust me, you’ll be grateful you called her first. Joshburs

I can’t say enough good about Diana. She helped us find our home. Diana’s knowledge base is amazing! Diana knew the answer to even our most bizarre questions. This is not my first purchase, I have moved a lot, but Diana far exceeded our expectations. When it came to negotiating with the seller she pushed us to get the very best price. We probably would have paid more for the house and asked for less in compensation (like appliances and repairs minor repairs as a result of the home inspection). She saved us a lot of money. If I didn’t love my home so much I would do it all over again with Diana. LKidd

My husband and I were in the process of deciding whether Bethlehem, PA would be a good landing place for our move from the Pacific Northwest. We were looking for someone who would take the time to show us around the area even though there was the possibility we would not end up settling there. Diana did that for us in April, 2015. Her honesty, patience, and cheerfulness then impressed us quite a bit. We decided during that visit that if we did settle in Bethlehem we would certainly use Diana as our realtor. After selling our home in Washington we returned to Bethlehem, and Diana, on a serious home-buying mission toward the end of January 2016. During all that time between trips East Diana had been in touch with us via email, telephone, and daily automatic updates as to what was current on the market. We are now settling into our new home and have learned that a neighbor purchased their home a couple of years ago with Diana’s assistance, and they know of yet another just a few doors away. Diana will work hard for you to help you find the house you want. She is a blessing. marsposa

I live in New York and we enlisted Diana’s help to sell my Mothers home in Allentown, PA in 2015. Diana guided me through each stage of the process and recommended local contractors to help get the house up to code. I coordinated with the contractors long distance and they did excellent work. I started the house work following 5 months of intensive elder care responsibilities with Mom and weekend commutes from NYC to Allentown. After this somewhat exhausting ordeal, to our great relief, Diana negotiated, and got us our asking price 3 days after she put the house on the market! I give Diana my highest recommendation. She’ll be there with you every step of the way – cheerful, competent and professional. Mary Dooley

Diana has considerable knowledge not just about how to buy (or sell) a home but about the things you need to know to evaluate how a property will meet your needs. For example, we were looking to buy an older property where little history was available. She gave us invaluable help in getting the right advice about the house’s structure from the roof to the foundation, the mechanical systems, issues some neighbors’ properties might present us in the future, etc. She helped us sort out what issues we needed to be concerned about and what things would be easy inexpensive fixes. She handled some difficult issues for us in getting to closing and kept us sane through a drawn out process with FHA. kim morrissey

Diana always answered our questions with knowledge and in a friendly, calm way, making the process or selling our home much less anxiety-producing than it could have been. A lovely, smart realtor with years of experience. thehappyfrog

Diana Hodgson did a through job, had many open houses, and always notified me when the house was to be shown. The house was not an easy house to sell and Diana persisted until the house was sold. She was well prepared for the closing and the closing went well. a026

Hi Diana, “Thank You” is not enough for your excellence in real estate knowledge and courtesy that you have shown my Mom and myself in the presentation and selling of the property at 2730 Stonewood Drive, Bethlehem, PA 18017. Following your advice regarding the removal of the carpeting and the wallpaper and applying a new coat of paint in the kitchen, dining room and living room proved to be well worth it. I have gained great respect for you in the caring nature you have for the elderly when they have to sell a home that was very much an ingrained part of their lives. You have the ability to nurture the elderly in this very hard life changing experience, especially with my Mom who along with my Dad, built the home 47 years ago and did much of the finishing work in the house. It was truly their blood sweat and tears that made it their sanctuary. As you know, the loss of my Dad in 2012 made it all the more difficult for my Mom to go through this process, so I was very happy to have your support. Being the only child of my parents; members of the Greatest Generation; and the fact that my Dad fought for the freedom of our country in WWII; giving up 5 years of his life in the Army; 3 of which were spent fighting in Europe; created a strong passion in me that I hoped and prayed that the agent selling my parents home and the buyers would be worthy of what my parents built together. You were and are very understanding of what I was saying when I explained my thoughts and what I expected for my Mom and myself. You came through with all my expectations of yourself; a very worthy individual, and God sent us Rodney and Peggy; whom I had an opportunity to chat with early on and knew they were very worthy of the house. With all that said, it is my pleasure to know you, and call you a friend. I will gladly recommend you to anyone that I meet who may be looking for a real estate agent. I will also be recommending you to the elderly neighbors and friends of my Mom, knowing that she will be doing the same. Again, an Infinity of thanks to you. God Bless you, and best of luck in your life. Highest Regards and Thanks, Gary & Helen Wright P.S. Please drop off some business cards next time you stop in at Traditions.

Diana Hodgson is a top notch realtor! She is very knowledgeable about the selling and buying of real estate. Diana will work with you from the beginning of the deal to the end, answering any and all questions. If Diana is not sure of a question asked, she will seek and find the answer and get back to you in a very timely manner. All of my dealings with Diana have been very smooth and truly professional ! I would recommend Diana to anyone looking to buy or sell a home . Sincerely, Frank Mussone

Diana always comes through. The deal that she brokered for me was for a house in the RIGHT neighborhood, with the right layout and a great garage & driveway which is what I was aiming for over the last 40 months. I got all 5 of my 5 “must haves” in the house purchase. Diana has tenacity, and, always greets her client with a smile—even under the most stressful of moments. She is truly professional and knows her job. In addition, she refers the absolute BEST and most economical help. The movers were reasonable, the cleaning gal was quite reasonable and awesome, and, the tips after the move were very helpful. She was firm with the seller’s agent and got me an additional $200 toward cleaning up the place. Luv2goSanDiego

I did recently recommend Diana to a friend who intends to hire Diana in the spring of this year. If I find others trying to sell or rent a house, I would always recommend Diana Hodgson of Keller-Willams. She is dedicated and pleasant and again, always has that welcoming smile. That smile and attitude and her ability to work with impossible clients like I make her a winner in my eyes. She’s the best

Diana was awesome during the whole selling process. She made what a lot of people consider a stressful time look like a piece of cake, always putting our minds at ease. She is extremely professional, but most of all she really cares about her clients. She’s the “Best in the BIZ!” rwkrieger

We hired Diana because of her expertise and highly evolved people skills. She told us what to do to prepare the house for sale. She helped us with the pricing and negotiations. The house sold in 3 days. Diana is the type of agent you want on your side. She is knowledgeable, hardworking and conscientious. Diana will always have your best interests in mind. user7023750

Diana is an amazing realtor! How amazing? She knew the areas so well that she didn’t need a GPS or a map to navigate us around. She told us immediately which areas to avoid so we don’t waste our time looking at something that will not sell well in the future. She also told us which areas are expanding well and which areas would be a good fit for our family with a toddler. She spent most of her Saturdays last summer with us house hunting and our toddler loved her so much he couldn’t wait to see her every weekend. We’ve not only found a realtor, we found a friend that we can count on. She is the best around Bethlehem! user8059828

Diana was spectacular. She traveled to Chester County to help me find the perfect home. She was always available to show me houses. She showed me over 50 homes and was tireless to find the right home for me.She answered all of my questions and concerns.You could not find a better agent to help you find your dream home. user680682

Diane Hodgson is the ultimate professional, knowing the in’s and out’s of home buying, home warranties, renovations, and the mortgage process. Excellent service and highly personal. user5554804

Diana helped us prepare a twin house in Catasauqua Pa for sale. She came on board when we were trying to decide whether to sell”as is” or continue renovations. She encouraged us to continue working, made specific suggestions that made the house more attractive to buyers for example:adding a new counter top to the kitchen island that made the kitchen “eat in”;suggesting limited staging of certain rooms and adding some outdoor planting. She encouraged us when our spirits faltered. We listened and followed her suggestions and finally listed the house in July just before we left for a trip outside of the country.Thanks to her good marketing and our hard year of work, the first prospective buyer made a serious offer and Diana skillfully via E-mail negotiated a tentative buyer’s agreement. She also stayed in touch with other interested prospects just in case. There were,of course some hitches in the path to final settlement day. She helped us with all the details and then waited pleasantly with us for over 3 hours on that day in August while final financial details were ironed out. We are planning to renovate and sell another house and we are already using her expertise to decide how to spend the necessary money for maximum return. We recommend her without reservation. user8853164

Diana was very patient during our purchasing process. We looked at homes for two years. She delivered the same level of service from the first showing until the closing of the home. She continues to deliver outstanding service even though we are no longer looking for a home. She also assisted us with county tax reassessment and other post sale real estate support. J Burk
Diana was lovely to work with. She is friendly and outgoing. She first showed us houses in the Bethlehem area and then agreed to go out outside her usual area to sell us the perfect house. Due to some personal issues, we had to sell that house months later and was able to sell it during a rough market without us having to take a hit. I would highly recommend her. user7628103

Diana Hodgson is not only one of the nicest most caring realtors I have ever worked with, she is also extremely knowledgeable, reliable and professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home to sell or buy. She is a pleasure to work with and gets you the results you want. DG, Bethlehem

Diana is a pleasure to work with. She is professional and friendly. She makes the experience much easier, points out problems and tips that the average buyer/seller would very unlikely know or recognize and most importantly, she is absolutely honest and someone you can trust. I am confident she could help most anyone buy or sell their real estate. user462869

Diana is a very professional and compassionate person. She was always readily available to answer our “many” questions/concerns. Diana made sure that the entire process ran smoothly from start to finish. user0042824

My wife and I were very apprehensive about selling our current home and purchasing our first new home in almost 20 years when we reached out to Diana. During the whole process Diana was always approachable and never made me feel like my questions, sometimes repeated several times, were a bother to her. Her confidence and bright outlook help my wife and I become confident and see the process not as a challenge but a way to fulfill our dream. Ultimately Diana helped us locate our new home and at the same time sell our current home very quickly. We’ve been in our new home for 6 months and couldn’t be happier. David Varney Schuylkill Haven, PA

Diana was extremely helpful, she went out looking for our perfect home in snow and rain, nothing stops her! She is a real trooper and cares for her customers! user2552755
