Samantha Kullmann recommends Maria Elias

I highly recommend Maria! She has helped me with both buying and then selling my home. She was attentive and extremely helpful on both ends. She knows a great deal about real estate and is always willing to share her knowledge and objectively state pros and cons of different home features. On the selling end she went above and beyond to make sure my home looked great and sold fast! No other real estate agent that I have worked with comes close.

Rich Etzkorn recommends Connie Lee

Connie works very hard for you and your best interests.

Ellen Cusumano recommends Jill Kelly

Home seller and buyer

Jill is the consummate real estate professional. She assessed what I needed to do to best prepare my home for marketing photos and the sale. She prepped me for the entire process so that I was prepared for my selling my of 25 years home. All went according to her plan and my house sold so fast we cancelled the open house! Even after the sale she was handling sale requirement issues that required MUCH time such as getting bids and hiring a plumber. I didn't have to deal with anything except the minimum. I can't over emphasize what a great extra service this was for me. She had also helped me find a new home and I was in the process of moving. She stepped in to relieve me of the extra burdens on both ends (the buying and the selling) and kept me from making mistakes and feeling overwhelmed. Nobody goes the extra mile like Jill. Nobody. She's the best ever.

Robert McLaughlin recommends Connie O'Connell

Connie was extraordinary to work with in the purchase of our new home. Readily available, quick to follow up, proactive on items on my to-do list not even communicated to her yet, and she provided thoughtful input on various decisions along the offer and sale process. Dedicated to her craft, an overall pleasurable experience across the entire house hunting and buying journey.

Carl Robinson recommends Jill Kelly & Krissy Hof Team

General Manager

As a first time homebuyer, moving in from out of state, I honestly could not have asked for a better realtor. My partner and I took interviews with other realtors but Krissy Hof understood our vision immediately. Organized, professional and honest are three words I would use to describe our experience. Krissy made herself available to answer any and every question we had and because of this closing on our home was both smooth and painless. Krissy Hof is one of the most genuine people I’ve met in a very long time and I am forever grateful for all she did to get us into our perfect home.

Lisa Morgan recommends Jessica Lowe

Insurance Professional

I would highly recommend working with Jessica to help you find your next new home. Her extensive knowledge of the area neighborhoods and market were greatly appreciated as I was not all too familiar with the areas I wanted to purchase in. She also really listened to what I told her I wanted when it came to what was most important to me, specifically: location and price point. She kept me on track in my search by showing me only those types of listings within the parameters I had set. She even reminded me what it was I told her was important to me when I began to consider looking at homes outside of those parameters. Ultimately, she helped me find the perfect place for me and was very helpful throughout the closing process. She answered all of my questions or was able to find the answer for me almost immediately. She was very responsive and professional throughout the entire process. I would recommend her to anyone looking to work with the best!

Justin was great!

Nina recommends Justin Ketterman

I contacted Justin Ketterman somewhat impulsively one rainy afternoon in early autumn while casually browsing at homes on the internet while I should have been working. This little bungalow with a luxurious front porch was practically serenading me, so I picked up my phone, called the number of the agency associated with it, and asked the polite young man who picked up if he could please show it to me that afternoon. And while I didn’t end up buying that house, I was immediately sold on Justin. There was something inherently kind about him, and something deeply sincere--I got the impression that he genuinely was interested in helping me find the home my family and I were meant to live in.
A few months later, my husband and I did end up buying a house, and Justin served as our agent. I can honestly say that he made the entire process about as complicated as ordering a pizza, and he even taught me some new computer skills along the way! He’s confident and assertive (but never pushy), intelligent without coming across as arrogant, and has an obvious passion for his profession that, for me, added a great deal to the general excitement of buying a home. Furthermore, he has a keen eye for detail and will go out of his way to avoid possible misinterpretations of written documents by making slight adjustments along the way (even when this means extra work for him.)
As my family and I continue to settle into our dream home, Justin still checks in from time to time with a friendly text to see how we’re doing, and asks if we need any further assistance, which is just so incredibly thoughtful. I really can’t recommend him highly enough!

Mark and Joan Oakley recommends Patershuk Partners

Diane was willing to take the time to answer my inquiries about a great house coming on to the market. My husband and I were not planning to move, but Diane’s information and encouragement allowed us to feel confident making a decision to move and put our home on the market.
Diane has an outstanding reputation in the area and knows her stuff! She was wonderful to work with and answered all our questions with great insight and expertise. She worked with us as a dual-agent, which can be tricky. She helped make the inspections, contracts and walk-throughs painless and efficient. Diane gave us great advice on staging our home, which resulted in us receiving two offers the first week our home went on the market!
We took Diane’s recommendation for financing expertise, which was rewarding and positive. Diane was responsive, patient and a joy to work with. She takes the fear and anxiety out of buying and selling a home due to her warmth, humor and expertise.

Daniel Schachtman & Ellen Marsh recommends Patershuk Partners

We moved to St Louis 10 years ago, and were looking to purchase a home in the Ladue School district. I met Diane through school (our daughters were friends at the elementary school), and she offered her assistance. Diane was a pleasure to work with for a number of reasons: her excellent knowledge of the real estate market, her honesty and integrity, her commitment to her clients, and her ability to listen to what we wanted in a house. She never pressured us to “settle” for things, and was committed to finding us a house in our price range. Diane worked tirelessly for us, and handled all the details involved in the purchase of our home, making the transaction smooth and stress-free for us. We have been very happy with the home we purchased! Diane is an excellent agent, generous with her time, and a wonderful, caring individual who gives so much to her community. We highly recommend Diane as an agent.

Martha Moran recommends Patershuk Partners

Attorney, Law Offices of Martha M. Moran

Diane Patershuk is an excellent real estate agent! She really goes the extra mile for her clients. She works hard and gets great results.

Diane helped me sell my house when I was moving away from St. Louis. She helped get my house ready to sell by recruiting friends in the community to declutter and prepare my house for sale. I will never forget her hard work and kindness during a difficult move. Because of her hard work and good advice, my house looked beautiful and sold quickly. As a single parent, I never would have been able to get my house ready by myself.

When I decided to move back to the Olivette area, she was there for me again and helped me find a home in the area.

I recommend Diane highly - she is so experienced and she will work hard to get you the best outcome on your sale or purchase of your home.

John and Jill Farmer recommends Patershuk Partners

We decided the timing was right for our family to make a move. We wanted to remain in our top rated school district. We hoped to take advantage of the great prices on homes for sale at that time, while still receiving a fair price for the sale of our home. It seemed like we might be asking a lot of our agent to meet all of our specific requests and needs.

From our first meeting with Diane, we discovered her vast knowledge of the market, combined with her incredible community connections and passion for matching the right clients with the right homes would be a perfect fit for our family. She meticulously assessed our home and provided specific instructions for getting the house ready for sale to attract the best buyers in the market conditions at the time. She supported us and encouraged us as we readied our home for sale. We followed her expert instructions "to a tee" and it paid off extremely well for us! Once the house was ready for sale, Diane pulled out all of the stops to market its attributes. She has a gift for highlighting the unique features to attract specific buyers who are a good match. She truly went above and beyond to get the word out about our home. We were very impressed with Diane’s constant communication with us throughout the process and attention to the constant barrage of details. We always had the feeling that she would drop everything to work for us, solve problems and answer questions.

Given the market conditions at the time, we expected it to take some time for the house to sell. So, needless to say, it was a fabulous surprise when Diane sold our house, at a price that exceeded our expectations, just FOUR days after it went on the market (in one of the toughest real estate markets in years.)

Diane handled all of the complicated negotiations of the sale with ease. It was a terrific process for us. All the while, she worked tirelessly to help us find a new home that would be perfect for our family. She talked us out of "settling," and helped us get a fabulous home at an amazing price. Every day, we feel blessed to be here.

She (and her family!) even helped avert a Moving Day crisis by finding an extra truck and helping move furniture at the last minute. To say that Diane and her team provided good service would be a tremendous understatement.

We are truly grateful for Diane's tireless efforts to make it all possible. We cannot say enough good things about our experience working with Diane. She's an outstanding agent, and an amazing person who gives back so much to her community. Finally, we were impressed with Diane’s professionalism and ethical conduct. Through the course of the home-buying process and negotiations, it became evident that not all agents adhere to the code as she does. We were proud to have her as our representative.

Jim Bly recommends Patershuk Partners

Diane was a friend and neighbor before we did business together. Over the years she has helped me both buy and sell homes. Her knowledge and attention to detail are truly first rate. Buying or selling a home is a difficult process at best. With Diane representing me I know that everything is being covered properly.

Carla and Gordon Newton recommends Patershuk Partners

I first met Diane through Ladue High School. My girls were new to the district and we met because our daughters played Field Hockey and Lacrosse. I was always amazed at Diane’s commitment to everything. I also noticed her “for sale” signs around Olivette, were we lived, and also noticed the “sold signs” on them in a very down market. I knew that we would need to downsize due to my job loss and said to my husband Gordon that when we are ready I would like to interview Diane for the job. He was fine with interviewing Diane but was a little confused because we know so many others in the real estate business (we have lived in 5 different houses in the area). We asked Diane to come to meet with us and when she came to our home she had the most thorough presentation we have ever seen. Gordon looked at me when she was finished and said where do we sign. he realized we did not have to look further.

Diane did not disappoint us, she sold our home in three weeks! After we signed the sales contract, Diane instructed us on what we should do to make our house show better. Her ideas were practical and effective. Diane’s marketing ideas were great and the pictures Rod took were beautiful. Diane held open houses and after each one she had very good feedback for us and we could tell she was truly working at the open houses not just sitting there. Once we got a contract on the house Diane worked just as hard making sure all went smoothly. She was always available and never too busy to deal even with my most ridiculous questions.

Now the time came to purchase a new home. Diane listened to our needs and was always respectful of them. We looked at so many homes and I never felt that Diane was pushing us towards anything and she never made us feel like we were a bother. Diane really seemed to care about where we ended up living and actually found us a house that was not even on our list. She worked hard on negotiating us a remarkable deal on the home so we are comfortable and within our price range. Diane proved herself to us in every aspect of our home sale and purchase. She is extremely hard working and professional but also a very kind and caring person. Diane proved to me that my first impressions were spot on about her, she has incredible follow through, can do more than anyone I have ever met and can do it better than anyone I know. I really cannot say enough good things about Diane and if you are in the market to buy/sell a home let Diane show you how to get it done.

Stacy and Tim Butz recommends Patershuk Partners

Teachers at Ladue and Maplewood/Richmond Height School District

Diane gets the job done right! She guided me in the right direction and helped get my home ready for the sale. In turn, she worked extremely hard to find my family a new place to call home. She is a dedicated professional who made me feel comfortable through every step in the buying and selling of my new home. She is someone you can depend on when it comes to taking that step forward in the housing market.

Dave Rashet recommends Patershuk Partners

Executive Vice President - Stifel Bank & Trust

I have known Diane for years. As a lender in the local market, we have done many transactions together. I have always known that she is a great agent. When the time came to sell my personal home, however, I got the chance to see Diane work her magic as a client. She did an excellent job. Diane found a well qualified buyer for our home at a great price. On top of that, everything went very smoothly. Diane is very likable, easy to work with, and most importantly, effective. We highly recommend her as an agent!

Kimberly Millstone recommends Patershuk Partners

Diane has helped my family to both sell a home and buy a new one. She was recommended to us by a mutual friend and we were very happy with the results of both transactions! Diane is very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate transactions, so she was able to help us through a sticky situation when the house we were selling became hail damaged while under contract. Thanks to her efforts, we were able to negotiate through and finalize the sale with a good outcome for all involved. She is diligent and works tirelessly on her client's behalf. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell and plan to use her when we are ready to move again.

My agents, Joan Sharkey and Carol Wilson are the best of the Berkshire Hathaway family. I love them both! They are beyond reproach in the real estate market.

Tom and Reenie were always available via phone, email or text message. This was not a large transaction for them, but they took care of me like it was.
