Diane had a marketing strategy in place within 24 hrs. of my signing the listing. We had contact on a regular basis and every time I had an inquiry, she was responsive. Diane was extremely supportive and her positive nature helped make the entire experience easier for me my family. I am so thankful for Diane's assistance and I can't say enough about her and her team at Century 21 Gold Standard. ~ Mary Z. - Toronto, ON, Canada
    My husband and I had Diane Schafer-Gawel for a previous home sale 15 yrs ago. I was abole to track her down on google and thankfully, found her now working with Century 21. Even though our house was in East Aurora, NY and Diane worked out of the Northtown office, we knew we still wanted her for our broker because of our previous experience with her. She, once again, helped us make our sale move as quickly and smoothly as possible. We wholeheartedly give our vote of confidence in, and recommendation for Diane, to anyone considering using Century 21 Gold Standard. No matter where Diane works, she still retains her professionalism, honesty and genuineness. Thank you, Diane. ~ Gwen Beiter Warren, Welfleet, MA 02667
    Diane was amazing. She has been like family to my husband for 20+ years. Clearly, she knew she wasn't retiring on the commission of our house purchase, but she stayed very active in trying to find our first home. We looked at many dumps along the way and houses that we knew were out of our reach but always kept our minds open and in the game. We opted to purchase a house during in one of the most demanding markets in the area in the the midst of a seller's market. There were many times that my husband and I were ready to throw in the towel. Diane sensed this and I would always see another email in my inbox with a potential house. Our process started in November, 2016 and we were able to find our "perfect" little house exactly a year later. Since the closing she has checked in often and even dropped by for a visit. ~ Daryl & Megan -Williasmville, NY
    I had been referred to Diane by a friend. This friend had told me that Diane was the absolute best; that I could not find a better agent. That friend had never been more correct. Diane could not have improved upon any aspect of the process. I will forever recommend her to anyone who even begins to mention that they're in the market for a home purchase/sale. Diane was the best. She went above and beyond throughout the process. What else is there to say? Diane could not have improved upon her performance. Diane really took the proverbial bull by the horns on this one. The staff was a pleasure, though. ~ Jarod in Buffalo
    Diane's knowledge and professionalism are surpassed only her engaging personality and her sincerity in wanting to be of assistance. ~ Anthony D. Abbarno, Buffalo

    Diane had assisted us with the sale of my parent's home years ago. There was no question from our previous experience that we would call on her again. Once again, we were very pleased. Diane simply makes it all so easy. She doesn't simply tell you what you want to hear. She is honest and gives you all possible scenarios in the sale of your house. She guides you through the process, but you as the homeowner, are still in control. Any questions you may have are always answered promptly, she is always readily available! Her calm and friendly demeanor makes the process stress free. DIane is both knowledgeable and likeable which is important In presenting your home to potential buyers. I will always consider Diane to be my realtor as well as my friend. ~ Nancy Doyle, Orchard Park
    I went with Diane at my parents suggestion because they spoke very highly of her and it was my first purchase of a home. Glad I listened to them.

Her concern, care and dedication to both the sale of my home and making sure I would not lose out on the purchase of my new home because of the delays is deeply appreciated.

    I liked Diane the instant I met her. She had sold the house up the street so that is why I called her, but if I didn't care for her I would have kept looking. She was not over the top pushy sales person though not a lazy non-aggressive one either. A perfect balance. She was confident and friendly. Her communication was second to none. Any question via phone, text or email was answered quickly no matter what time of day. Diane went out of her way to make the closing easier for us as it was an estate and there were four of us involved. Of course, it was our parents home which made it emotional.
