Diana was beyond exceptional. She went above and beyond in every way to meet our needs. She was professional, very easy to work with, fast, knowledgeable and just an overall fantastic experience.

— Buyer I.M.

We met Diana while she was having an open house. Not our style home but we started talking with Diana and she offered to show us other homes in the area of the Vail valley right after the open house was over which was about 20 minutes from the time we entered. She was very knowledgable of the area and knew of several homes for sale within our price point. From that meeting we scheduled followup meetings with her while she sent us information on homes and areas in the area. After 3 different days of visiting homes we found the home we purchased. Diana was ALWAYS prepared with all the information we requested and she had it when we visited and did not have to followup with it at a later date. She had country club comparison spread sheets, interest rate data, tax and transfer fee data, comp pricing, asking price to sell ratios, and days on the market information. She was also able to give us price per sq. footage data on each house without being asked. When we made an offer she was very aware of all the contract detail and helped us through it as we were from out of state and not familiar with Colorado real estate law. We did hire a real estate attny to further protect us but Diana was correct in all her direction. Diana followed every step of the process through closing and was there to help in any way she could. She also introduced us to many facets of the community as well. Two and a half years later we have remained friends and we have recommended Diana to 2 other couples interested in purchasing locally, one on the opening price end of the real estate market and one on the higher end and both are very happy with her service. She will also list our home if we ever decide to sell it. We would rate her as one of the best realtor we have ever met and we have purchased and sold 12 homes so far in multiple cities across the country.

— Larry & Sue

Diana is very skilled at ascertaining what a client is really looking for in a home. Rather than simply showing us what was available in our price range, Diana took in our responses to a few homes, skipped those she knew wouldn't fit aesthetically or practically, and honed in on those which would. Also, she helped us sell our last place with an ease and diplomacy and fairness which exceeded our expectations. You are lucky if you have Diana working with you!

— Tim & Mary

Diana helped with the purchase of my Edwards, CO home. She is very personable, professional and made the experience seemless and fun! Last year Diana helped me look for another residence and found an increadible deal. Sadly that house was already under contract but we put in a strong back up offer just in case the first offer failed.

Diana Mathias is the best! We bought the best condo in Vail with her assistance. She really listens to what you say, and notes how you react to properties she shows, so she never wastes your time showing places you would not be interested in. She keeps her eyes on the market daily, and quickly let's you know if there is something new to see. The day we flew in to show my husband the unit we would likely buy, she introduced us to a property that came on the market that very morning that she viewed early and insisted we see before the one we intended to buy. It was perfect, and we loved it even more. We've been there for a few years now and really still believe it is the best property in all of Vail. She worked well with us and the realtor for the seller, so we were able to negotiate every detail we wanted, and close quickly. It went very smoothly. I would definitely use her again, and highly recommend her to others.

— David & Kim

Diana Mathias has been my broker for 3 homes in the Vail Valley and has always gone above and beyond to take care of my interests. Her knowledge of the local market has allowed me to accommodate all of my desires as I have purchased bigger properties each time and made the buying experience a seamless process. I have been able to recommend others who all have ended up purchasing through her and all of them more than satisfied with their outcomes. She is a true professional that executes her business masterfully. She is creative and does her homework to match myself up with properties that more than suit my needs and desires.

— Ken

From my experiences, Diana is the best there is in the Vail Valley and a pleasure to work with. Diana made the process smooth and time from start to finish. She understood what I was looking for and didn't waist my time showing me a multitude of properties that weren't what I was looking for. I would recommend Diana to anyone interested in real estate in the Vail Valley.

— I D Whitman

Diana has worked with us on two purchases in the Vail Valley. From the time we first met her when we walked into the Slifer office on Bridge Street through each of our purchases she was friendly, professional, knowledgeable - just what we wanted in a real estate agent. Diana has a great sense of what her customers are really looking for and the knowledge of the Valley and what is available to match. We have also asked Diana's advice on architects, builders, designers - and always found her to be honest, fair and most helpful. Now that we are living here full time, we are happy to count her as a friend as well!

— Ruth and Tom Powers

To Whom it may concern: My wife and I were looking to purchase a condo in Vail which would be on the Town of Vail Bus Route. I was using the internet to investigate and happened to email Diana. Diana immediately responded with ideas and suggestions. I gave her details of a visit that I planned over a weekend. She quizzed us on what we were looking for. Based on that information she set up visits to a number of varied condos in various locations around Vail that fitted our requirements. We found Diana to be extremely responsive and informative, she never put us under any pressure to purchase and basically chauffeured us around, took us back a number of times to see the properties, and by Sunday we had made an offer that was subsequently accepted. We have purchased homes elsewhere in America and Europe and I have to say that Diana made the whole process extremely simple and stress free, I would recommend her services to anyone.

"We were very pleased with the service that Diana provided. She was very professional and helpful. She never took us to see a property that did not meet our requirements and she was never pushy or annoying!! She was honest about the properties we looked at, pointing out deficiencies as well as positives. There was no what I call Realtor Speak, e.g., small being expressed as "cozy". If you are looking for a professional, personable agent who knows the area very well and won't take you on wild goose chases we highly recommend Diana Mathias."

She is thorough, confident, intelligent and honest. If only everyone did business this well..."

Diana fit the bill, she helped us every step of the way with everything we needed to do to close from out of state including facilitating inspections, repairs, finding a local insurance agent, etc. She even helped us find furniture! Overall, we were very happy with the experience and would not hesitate to recommend Diana."

"Diana was the third agent that I worked with in Vail. From the very beginning her patience and time she spent listening to our needs were outstanding. This created a very trusting relationship. She showed us a number of condos around the area and we finally found exactly what we wanted in our price range, a town house in East Vail. Although this was some years ago we stay in touch, she regularly keeps us informed of the market and when I inherit some money I will be calling her to upgrade!"
