Starting my business as a home inspector in 2004, I was fortunate to meet Diana Sames during my first few months in business. It was important to me at the time, that I not only establish myself as an expert in the inspection side of the real estate transaction, but also learn how the realtors' end of the process works. Diana was the first to take the time to help me. 11 years later, we continue to work together to ensure her clients receive the best possible experience, when buying or selling their home. If and when my family members decide that shoveling sand, and not snow, seems like a much better idea, I will steer them straight towards Diana Sames!
Diana was a patient ,flexible, resourceful, and fun agent while finding our home. She was remarkable letting us take our time and revisiting as many times as we needed. We were purchasing our home from out of town and Diana would go to prospective homes and face time with us so we could see the home. When there were issues at closing, on the sellers end she took charge to correct the issues and made things happen quickly and efficiently. Diana will truly work endless hours to find your new home.

I met Diana in 2007 she was most helpful in founding the best place possible for me and my family to live.I thank her very much.don't wait call Diana
With Diana was wonderful. We first contacted her as she was the listing agent on a short sale that we saw listed on Realtor.com. Diana was very patient with us as we worked through what price range, location, condition of home, etc., that we were comfortable with (and we changed our minds several times!). She not only sent us new listings on a regular basis, but was always willing to take us to see any home we found on online real estate sites. We looked at homes off and on for well over a year %u2013 most realtors would have given up on a client by then %u2013 but then we found the perfect home %u2013 unfortunately, the seller had already accepted a cash buyer%u2019s offer. However, Diana kept in touch with the seller and a couple of months later called us to let us know that the deal fell through and the house was back on the market %u2013 two days later, our offer was accepted! You%u2019d think that would be the end of story %u2013 however, we began experiencing delays with our bank financing. We submitted all requested paperwork within 24 hours of the bank%u2019s request only to have them request the same paperwork weeks later. After more than a month of the same problem occurring over and over, Diana got involved %u2013 she got a new processor assigned to our loan and had a supervisor watching over the process and managed to push our loan through in just a few days. She also gave us recommendations on which home inspectors to us, etc. Everyone she recommended has given us excellent service. We are now living in our dream home and are working to get our old house on the market. Again, Diana has been a big help to us. We asked her to come look at our old home and she has given us advise on what buyers of homes in our area are looking for and where to put our money on fix-ups, etc. Needless to say, we will be listing our old home with Diana!
Diana is the best broker! I have been working with Diana since 2006. I was looking for a broker that could manage my rental property as well as find qualified tenants. I travel extensively for work and needed someone I could trust to treat my property like her own. Diana achieved that, and more. She recently sold this property for me. Diana is honest, kind and has a gift for knowing what her clients need. I would highly recommend Diana to anyone looking to relocate or invest on the beach!
Diana has helped us buy two homes and sell a home.. Smart, honest, innovative, aggressive and a real customer/client advocate.... Best in the county. We go nowhere else...
My wife and are HUGE fans of Diana. We came to meet her through an advertisement for a property she was listing about four years ago. Her knowledge of beach market was evident right away. She helped us through every step of the process, from locating properties that we would be of interest to us through the offer process and even through the appraisal and financing and closing steps. She is a great guide, a wonder teacher and possesses amazing patience. We're so thankful for her efforts and would recommend her to anyone!
Our experience with using Diana Sames as our realtor for purchasing a property in the Gulf beaches area was great! She was professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. Diana went that extra step to make sure our dream home purchase was as pleasant and unburdened as possible.
I met Diana through another person that she had helped to purchase a house
in St. Petersburg --in fact a few years later she also helped this person purchase
a house for his mother in St. Pete. Diana helped me find the condo I now own
and I was satisfied and happy with the help she gave me.
Diana manages our rental property. She is always helpful and in touch with the renters needs and she does an excellent job keeping her eye on the property as well as managing the various property workers, such as pool and lawn maint.
Diana was a great help to us when we purchased our condo in North Redington Beach. She made the whole process stress free! Her personality and kindness make her stand out from other professionals.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give you a review on Diana Sames. My late husband, Mike was actually in contact with Diana first. I remember Mike speaking and meeting with Diana and how he was very impressed with her professionalism, knowledge with the St. Petersburg/Treasure Island real-estate area as well as her friendliness. I was lucky enough after the purchase of our condominium back in 2005 to meet Diana in person and clearly could see why my husband thought so highly of Diana. She continues to stay in touch with me and does an excellent job keeping me updated with real-estate/insurance information. I would highly recommend Diana Sames as she is a fantastic realtor who does an outstanding job of always putting her clients best interest first.
Diana was excellent. She did not waste our time showing us houses that were not appropriate. She was selective. When one was about to come on the market she thought was a fit, she arranged for us to see it and we made an offer on the spot. She was extremely professional and helpful during the purchase and closing process. She also was very caring and gave me a great list of services in the community since it was new territory for us.
HI, I met Diana Sames after calling her to view a condo she was showing in Seminole Florida. After viewing the condo and meeting her I called her over the next few weeks several times as I wanted to look-again at a few of the condos that I was interested in. Diana always answered my phone calls promptly, she was always available at near a drop of a pin to meet with me and always got answers to my many (tons) of questions and concerns I had. Being in my late 50's then I had lots of experience and contacts with realtors and I will truly say that Diana excelled with all the attributes necessary to make a great realtor, friend and trusted confindant. Needless to say I bought one particular condo of the several she showed me and Diana and her team of colleague (friends) also assisted me with the same high degree of service to facilitate the successful timely closing on the condo. Diana without reservation can be that trusted professional you would hope to have "on your side" and you can count on her business abilities and sauve. In conclusion I know and believe that Diana will serve you with your best interests in mine ~ without question, I know she did this for me. Thank you.

I have purchased two homes from Diana , one which I use as a rental property and the other as my residence for six months of the year. Diana has gone above and beyond from the time I contacted her about the properties, through the whole transaction process. Diana has referred me to some trustworthy people in the area for repairs and renovations to my properties and has also found me some excellent tenant's. Thanks so much Diana !
I met Diana when I was looking at properties in the St pete beach area. i stopped at remax by accident, not knowing her. She was prompt in understanding what my wife and I were looking for, and we ended purchasing a property through her intermediary within 6 months. Her talent is to understand what the customer is looking for, do a good sampling, and then ensure that visit can take place promptly. After the purchase, she was most helpful as, not being familiar with the neighborhood, she assisted us in identifying many suppliers, repairers, etc. We have been most satisfied by her services.
Diana was terrific to work with. She did not waste our time showing us listings that did not meet our needs, she knew the community well and anticipated what was coming on the market, and when we bought the house she was excellent with the details of the closing and the follow up. She is a friendly, consummate professional.
Diana is not only an amazingly professional realtor, her personality is exuberant, positive and caring..
We could always trust that Diana listened to our wants and needs, whether buying or selling, and worked within our parameters. We met Diana as a realtor, but truly consider her a friend. She is always a treat to communicate and work with, and is always highly recommended to our friends and family!
Diana solicited me by mail about 2 years ago. Since then i have worked with her in both rental and sales capacity. In both situations i found her to be professional, personable, caring, '' WILLING TO GO THE EXTRA MILE '' ethical and efficent. I would recommend her to any potential buyer/ seller. Feel free to call me if oyu wishto discuss Diana Sames, and her work further ........... 703 2440292. Sincerely, James A.Cribbin. Thank you.

Great to work with, always responsive., very personable. She was able to show us several homes, assist with paperwork, and we closed within 45 days of driving down from Chicago.
We would highly recommend Diana as a Realtor. She listens carefully to the needs of her clients and her genuine concern is evident as she guides them through the real estate process. She is knowledgeable, reliable, and a consummate professional. We have recommended her to others and she is not only our Realtor but has become a friend as well. She found our dream home and we couldn't be happier.
Diana has sold two houses of mine. The first was in 2006 when the market was just starting to crash. She got me top dollar with a very creative selling strategy. The second was selling my townhouse in January of this year. She got me an all cash buyer and also the most money a unit like mine has sold for in 6 years. She is a great realtor and a great person.
Diana has managed my two condo units in St. Petersburg for over 4 years. I are very pleased with the way she handles all types of problems and always with a solution in mind. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone considering her services.
Very helpful and knowledgeable would definitely use her again
Diana sold me my house 10 years ago and reminds me that it has taken me that long to fix It up. Now hopefully she will sell it for me and help me find the next one. I have been able to recommend her services to fiends of mine and she has come through every time.
Diana handling the purchase of my house. She did a fabulous job and took care of getting all of the questions answered and the annoying paperwork. She has a great attitude and solved all the issues.
Diana Sames was instrumental in selling our property. Very user friendly/ quite knowledgeable/timely/professional/great negotiation skills/approachable and knows the area very well. She took the stress out of selling our property. Diana made selling our property a breeze. We would definitely use her again!!!!!!
Diana is a great ambassador for the St Pete Beach area. She not only sold our condo for us, but was our rental agent for the property for many years. As long distance owners we appreciated Diana's care on our behalf, her good advice and availability. She advised us on the preparation of the property for sale and the transaction went smoothly. We were always in good hands.
Of all the rental agents that I spoke with, Diana Sames was by far the very best agent in every way, I would not even think of using anyone else for any real estate needs in the future. Her excellent follow through and sincere concern, bright manner and knowledge are outstanding. It was apparent she had my back, she wanted me to have the perfect space I needed and nothing less and we found just that ! No pressure, just a lovely person in every way.
Diana was extremely helpful and kind in locating a place for me to rent when I was new to the St Petersburg area. I was having a fair amount of difficulty finding a place to live and Diana was a great help showing me some different properties and then helping me decide to move in to a wonderful place. She was extremely professional and beyond helpful during my transition. Highly recommended.

We used DIANA to buy a condo in Indian Shores, FL. She is a consumate professional in the real estate business. I highly recommend DIANA SAMES. From making an offer to signing the final closing documents DIANA was very helpful.
Having lived in Nashville, Tn for the last 30 years, I knew nothing about buying property in St Pete Beach. Diana took control and easily guided me through all the steps and found for me the perfect place. And she was very patient with me in the process. I know there are many wonderful agents in the area, but there is no one better than Diana. Please contact her. You won't be disappointed.
Diana was incredibly helpful in my search to buy a waterfront condo. I was looking for something that I could rent out now and ultimately retire to . . . She was very informative about the area, a well as the pro's and con's of the different properties. Since I live out of state she helped me navigate the Florida home buying process and the subsequent rental process. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, customer focused real estate agent, you can't go wrong with Diana!
I can't express how fortunate I feel to have found Diana. I own the perfect vacation home for me because she listens, understands and doggedly pursues her clients' wishes.
I highly recommend Diana and Renee for all your real estate needs. While we worked more closely with Renee, Diana was always there to assist us with any questions. Her responses were quick and always helpful. Renee helped my husband and I find a condo (second home). Living in Michigan, I was a not sure of the area, but Renee was an expert on it. She never grew tired of our endless questions and her patience in showing us many different condos in many different areas was very much appreciated. The whole experience was just wonderful--made possible by their years of experience and friendly personalities. Do not hesitate--Call them! You'll be glad you did.
