Praise for Diane Keyes & This Sold House

“Tops on my wish list for Diane Keyes’ This Sold House is that it would have been published about a year sooner.  My family spent over a year trying to sell a home. If I'd had this incredible expert's wisdom to call on, we might have saved ourselves money, time, and a fair amount of anxiety!  Diane entertains and educates in this easy-to-read book. If you want to dive into the real estate pool, consider this book a life preserver!”
—Joan Steffend, host of HGTV's Decorating Cents

“After having our condo for sale for a year, we got This Sold House and followed Diane’s advice.  We spent around $100, borrowed a few items from friends and spent a week getting it ready.  Although there were six other units for sale in our building—and lots of new construction around us—we sold our home after the first showing!  We highly recommend taking Diane’s advice.  It sold our house, and we’re sold on This Sold House!”
  —Will Harpest, teacher and Chicago homeowner

“If you’re planning to sell your home in this difficult market, you should grab this book, read it cover to cover, and implement all Diane Keyes’ ideas, tips, and techniques.  Unlike most such books, This Sold House is written for common folk with limited money and little time to make elaborate changes.  After reading the Curb Appeal chapter, I found several ways to make my own home more appealing and create a better first impression.  Darn good ideas make this book worth your reading time and no doubt will be the ticket to a quicker and more profitable sale.”
  —Connie Anderson, president, Words and Deeds

“While nothing beats Diane in person, This Sold House is the next best thing. This wonderful book is a must-read for Realtors®, sellers, and even buyers.  If you or someone you care about is contemplating selling a home this year, you need this book. This is an edge that sellers shouldn't be without. “
—Sarah M. Richard, Realtor®

 “I love this book.  Chock full of common sense, it is useful not only for sellers but also those looking to simplify and make their home more appealing to everyone. I refer to it often and will recommend this book to all my friends, whether they are planning to move or not.  It is the perfect handbook to help homeowners emphasize the best features of every home.”
—Kathleen Pettit, author, producer, community organizer

“Diane Keyes has been an important part of my marketing plan for the last fifteen years.  She has prepared hundreds of my listings, helping them to sell quickly and more profitably.  Other realtors often compliment me on how well my listings show. The reason is clear—Diane Keyes. Following the advice in this book is the best investment you’ll ever make in your home.”
—Mary Sommerfeld, Master’s Circle Realtor®

“I highly recommend Diane’s book.  I always thought that staging was just about making the property look pretty, nicely decorated, or simply neat and tidy. As Diane points out, it also means removing obstacles, increasing the sense of space and flow, neutralizing decorating extremes, anticipating potential buyer objections, and most importantly getting inside the head of the buyer.  She brings a whole new dimension to staging I haven’t found elsewhere, with her understanding of the psychology of a home sale. You’ll attract more buyers by reading This Sold House.
  —Jeff Jackson, Mortgage Lender, Durango, Colorado

“Pay close attention to the advice that Diane Keyes gives in This Sold House.  Our own house sold for full price in three days after following Diane’s suggestions!  You will find no one better qualified and with more experience to help you prepare your home for sale.  Homeowners, real estate professionals, and investors alike will benefit from the insight and common sense in This Sold House.”
Andi Saylor, CRP and author of ON THE MOVE: The Complete Guide to Relocating 

“If you are one of the millions of people who will sell their home this year, this book is an absolute must-have! I always thought that getting my house ready for sale meant spending lots of money—not true!
As Diane Keyes points out, it’s not about having the right stuff that’s so important—it’s having your stuff in the right place! Diane takes you step-by-step through the whole process of getting MORE money for your home—and isn’t that what selling your home is all about?”
—Colleen Szot, author, TV scriptwriter

“A must-read for all realtors who call themselves professionals, this book can help give you that competitive edge.”
—Peggy Sparr, Realtor®

This Sold House clearly describes our own experience.  After having been on the market for eight months without selling, we took Diane’s advice and our home sold in less than one week.  The first person who saw the house bought it!  Diane’s uncanny ability to recommend simple changes to enable a successful sale made an immediate and striking difference. We highly recommend Diane as well as her book.”
—Suzan McGinnis, attorney, collections librarian
