Buying our first house with Diane was a great experience. This was actually our second interaction she previously helped someone in our family purchase their house a couple of years ago, so this was not a surprise. Buying our first home was intimidating, but Diane was calm and reassuring throughout the entire process. She was always accommodating to our busy work schedules and offered to meet us at any time that was convenient for us. We thought we knew what we wanted, but of course this changed a little along the way and Diane was incredibly patient with us. She was very responsive text, email, or phone anytime we had questions and asked to obtain the disclosures to all of the properties we were interested in. Before we started looking at properties, Diane had a meeting with us to figure out what we were looking for, give us advice about how to approach the process, and remind us that we would need to be patient in this crazy housing market. Once we found our house first and only offer! she went above and beyond to figure out what we needed to do in order to get it. Yes, we went above our initial budget, but if Diane hadn't given us a gentle nudge to perfect our offer based on her experienced instinct, we would've been edged out. After the offer was accepted, she professionally orchestrated the escrow process and made sure everyone involved completed their tasks to meet our closing deadline. As if that wasn't enough, she went even further to help us contact the city to determine if we could make certain changes to our property, met with contractors at the house while we were at work, and continued to reinforce that we made the right decision while we were having some post-purchase anxiety. Diane is your ideal agent and we are convinced that her demeanor with the listing agent was the final piece that got us our house. Overall, we couldn't recommend her enough!

Diane is a true real estate professional that can be trusted to give great advice and to get excellent results. We had an exceptional experience with her. Born and raised in the area, Diane’s market knowledge is second to no one. We met Diane in 2014, when we bought our home, she was the listing agent. When it came time to sell the home, we asked Diane for some market advice, as we were unclear as to whether we should rent the property or sell. Given her experience in both areas and her knowledge of the market, she made the decision obvious to us. Diane worked hard to negotiate our sale price and in the end, the sale price was way above what we had ever anticipated. Diane managed the entire transaction, while we moved our family back to Japan. Diane and her team ensured that we were able to complete the necessary paperwork, while giving us the right consultants in the US, to advise on every complex, tax detail. Her team was professional in all senses of the word, nothing was too much trouble. We cannot recommend Diane highly enough. If you are looking for a knowledgeable agent and one you can trust, you will not find a better one than Diane. We look forward to working with her again, in a few years, when we move back to the US.


Diane was helpful and knowledgeable from start to finish. She confirmed that it would be best to offer the property as is at the low end of the assessed value, to give buyers leeway to renovate or rebuild. We had 13 offers after the first open house and closed well above the asking price. Diane is unusually skilled at giving you information (on comparisons, on initial offering price, etc.) while letting you feel that you are the one who decides. She was endlessly generous with her time and energy, managing everything from open houses and random furniture to resettling an orphaned cat. Don't worry about it, was what she said. I was out of town while the property was being shown, but Diane kept me in touch throughout. Her response to questions was very quick, by email or telephone, and her use of Document sign for the endless signatures and approvals meant that everything moved faster. Maybe there's a way to give a more enthusiastic account of my experience with Diane Bucher as my agent; if so, tell me and I'll do it!

If you are selling or buying a home give very careful consideration when selecting a Real Estate Broker to represent you. I selected Diane Bucher to sell my house in San Jose, I can't say enough good things about Diane. I met Diane almost 2 years ago, at that time I was not ready to sell my house, but Diane kept in touch through email, newsletters and telephone follow up. When I was ready to sell my house Diane was very thorough and very sensitive to my needs. Diane was professional in every aspect of the transaction. She took care of all the inspections I required, was always on time, very detail oriented. Diane has a great depth of knowledge about the Real Estate transaction. If you are a buyer or seller I would highly recommend Diane as the Real Estate Broker you want working for you. On a scale of 1 to 10, Diane's an 11.

I met Diane while she was self advertising at a meet and greet in the lobby of my bank. Assertive not aggressive she listened without judgment to my situation, intuitive not invasive when she arrived to our home for the first appointment she had comparisons, quotes, and suggestions for what to expect and where to do next, preparation not pushiness when things fell through did not become angry or abrupt, compassionate not dismissive when I decided to purchase a home out of the area, I took a chance and asked for her help, responsive not patronizing the recommendation she gave fit my personality and need perfectly. Assertive & intuitive preparation with compassionate responsiveness, you really couldn’t ask for anything more when you’re undergoing such a life changing event.

Diane Bucher handled the sale of my parent's house. They are both in their 90s and really needed assistance with the sale. Like all excellent agents, her help extended well beyond the sale. She helped them coordinate every aspect of the house clean-up and move, and she supported/helped their transition to senior housing. Ms. Bucher is one of the kindest and most sincere individuals I have met. Her compassion towards my parents' situation and careful handling of the sale in the midst of COVID impressed me beyond words. If you're looking for an honest, hard-working individual who exemplifies what it truly means to be a professional realtor, there is no better choice than Diane Bucher.
