We love Bob and Diane, who have helped us purchase two homes and sell one in the past 5 years.

They are highly responsive to requests for assistance, know their markets well, are always ready to go to bat for their clients, and have the expertise necessary to facilitate the best possible outcome for buyer/seller. During our most recent sale, when we had a 4 month old child, they were really flexible and accommodating about hosting open houses/showings that worked well for our family. In addition to being great at what they do, they're also just a joy to be around. We could tell that prospective buyers were charmed by them during open houses and showings, and we sometimes think about listing our current home for sale just as an excuse to have them over for dinner. :) Buy/sell with Bob and Diane: you'll be so glad you did!

Bob and Diane Vanna of The Vanna Group made it easy to sell my home.

I have worked with The Vanna Group in the past and they did a great job with this sale, just as they have previously. I was impressed with the virtual open house they held of my home. They were able to showcase my home to many buyers and this ultimately led to selling my home. I appreciate their great communication skills, hard work and positive attitudes. They were always on top of things and ensured things moved forward. I highly recommend them and the 5 star experience they provide when buying or selling a home.

Kris K.

Diane Vanna of The Vanna Group made finding our first home so easy for us!

We were living in Texas, having our first baby and were looking for our first house in Chicago remotely, all during the Covid Crisis. Diane went on showings with our families, using FaceTime and video to show us houses. She knew what we were looking for so when the right house came on the market, she got to work and got our parents in to see the house right away and then advised us on how to best move forward. We were in a multiple bid situation for our house, but Diane's advice helped us get the house! The morning of our closing was actually the first day we saw the house in person. We loved it just as much in person as we did through our video calls with Diane! While buying a house without seeing it sounds absolutely crazy, we had such trust in Diane and felt so comfortable throughout the process that it never really phased us. As first time buyers we were really clueless on the process but Diane walked us through everything and was always happy to answer our questions. During such a stressful time, navigating having a baby and moving across the country during a pandemic, Diane made the home buying process simple, easy, and one less thing for us to worry about. We love our new home and would highly recommend Diane Vanna of The Vanna Group to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Her professionalism, care and hard work on your behalf will make you glad you did.

Alice E.

Diane was extremely helpful and understanding of our needs for our new home.

She also worked around our hectic schedules. Although Diane was very professional, working with her was more like working with a family member or close friend, it wasn't about making a sale with her, she was more concerned with us buying a home that fit our needs and that we would be happy in for many years to come. I would definitely use Diane and Bob again for any future real estate purchases and I have already recommended her to friends

Mike T.

I am so glad I contacted Diane Vanna of The Vanna Group to sell a family investment property that had been in our family for years.

She not only got our building sold quickly and for top dollar, she was caring, professional and even honored my years of service as a City of Chicago Police Officer. Diane stayed on top of everything. She made sure the sale stayed on track and always had my best interest at heart. I really enjoyed working with Diane and highly recommend Diane and The Vanna Group!

Rose O.

Diane was beyond helpful when it came to finding the perfect first home for me and my significant other.

We couldn't be happier with our new home and we really enjoyed working with Diane. We would recommend Diane to all our friend and family and would use her again as our Realtor in a heartbeat!

They were professional, caring and understood our family's needs. Their honesty and expertise helped us get top dollar for our family home. If you are looking for a true personal touch, then look no further than The Vanna Group for your real estate needs.

Roberto and Val B.

We worked with Diane as our seller’s agent.

She’s lived in the neighborhood for years, is very active in the community, and was very knowledgeable in helping us determine if the area would be a good fit for our family. As a first time home buyer, I now understand how rare it is to have an honest and open relationship with a seller’s agent. Diane answered any questions we had open and honestly. Diane obviously wants the best for her sellers, but I would say she cares just as much about the buyers, their happiness, and finding a good fit for everyone involved. We couldn’t have asked for a better first time home buying experience and Diane and her family played a huge role in that experience.

Cara T.

Bob & Diane of the The Vanna Group were excellent to work with when it came time to sell our home and move forward to enjoy retirement.

We would highly recommend The Vanna Group to our fellow First Responders who want to experience incredible service and results.
