After 24 years of specializing in listing homes, she wanted to make sure every Future Home Seller knew of the specific ways they needed to market, stage and price their homes different from their competition. Since 2008, a couple thousand Future Home Sellers have attended Diane’s Home Seminars. Based on over 24 years of selling real estate, her seminars are revolutionary and present top secret information about the real estate process, and the catastrophe that 95% of home sellers lose thousands of dollars when selling their home.

Diane and Her Team are considered industry experts in selling residential real estate. They are not afraid to divulge their secrets to the more Tradtional Realtors®.

Diane was drawn back to Abington in 2008 when Diane & her husband Stan built a beautiful office building at 1021 Old York Road, across from the Abington Library and she opened up her own real estate company, CARDANO Realtors ®.
