In an era when the internet empowers individuals to buy and sell homes on their own as never before, it is easy to understand the value an experienced professional can bring to the process. Diane Davidson is a gifted, knowledgeable, skillful professional who seamlessly handled every aspect of the sale of our home.
Diane Davidson employs an efficient, coordinated and comprehensive approach to assessing a home’s strength and value, executing home improvements and artful staging, advertising in a polished and tasteful manner and negotiating an equitable sale. Diane’s honest, respectful professionalism, combined with her sense of humor, make her an absolute pleasure to work with. In a challenging down market, Diane Davidson sold out home while neighboring homes remain on the market.
There is no substitute for the talent and skill an experienced professional brings to the assessment, management and execution of a home sale. I slept well, confident we were in the most capable of hands. Diane Davidson and her team are among the best of the best in Boston.
“Diane, Richard & Jeffrey walked us through the process, explaining in simple terms all aspects of the contract terms and logistics of the sale. They said, ‘Don't worry; leave it to us.’ From marketing to staging, this top notch team handled the sale superbly. On vacation I learned our home had sold in two days for above asking price. I was delighted. On my return to Boston I couldn't believe my eyes. This team had transformed my home into a showplace.
“Now the pressure was on; I had to relocate in Boston. The team compiled a list of must haves and optionals in my new property. Within two weeks I had a signed P&S on my new home. We closed on both properties within 60 days. And talk about service after the sale. Diane, Richard & Jeffrey have helped me find contractors for renovations so that I can make my new home exactly mine.
“The Davidson & Giglio Team is outstanding. Simply the best!”
"I know this was a very difficult process. You probably did a lot more than I know about, but what I did know was the trust I had in you and how spectacular I feel about you and your team. Thanks so much. I just can't say enough. You really helped me out and I just so much appreciate it."

"Having only lived in Boston a short time, it was critical to have someone as knowledgeable as Richard helping us find our home. We looked at many homes and Richard never got tired of trying to find something that fit our parameters. He was great to work with."

"The team of Diane Davidson and Richard Giglio helped us sell our home from start to finish. Diane was instrumental in staging the property to be sold, and Richard was there on a daily basis coordinating with several possible buyers, multitudinous showings and open houses and many details throughout the remainder of the process. We were very pleased to have sold our property during this tough economic cycle for real estate."

"After almost 35 years in our Back Bay townhouse, bringing up four wonderful boys, it was time to downsize. We were very sensitive & cautious in choosing a real estate agent who truly understood our emotional attachment to our home after all those years living in one residence.
"We were, however, very fortunate to find Diane Davidson & Richard Giglio who not only understood & supported our emotional position but provided terrific market & financial advice & guidance throughout the entire sales process which resulted in a successful sale at a good price. Diane & Richard's knowledge enabled them to take care of every detail of a complicated process in a professional & personal manner that was indeed exemplary.
"Thanks, Richard & Diane, for all your help, sensitivity & understanding in facilitating the sale of our home."
"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Richard in the recent sale of my home. His extensive and thoughtful research led to a very fair and accurate listing price and fantastic marketing, which resulted in a sale in just 11 days. Throughout the entire process, Richard took care of every detail making it an extremely smooth and stress-free one for me. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone who is considering selling their home or purchasing a new one."

"Listing our South End condo with Diane & Richard was one of the best and easiest things we have ever done. They match their expertise with your thoughts and concerns and come up with a realistic action plan for a sale that makes everyone happy. Any last minute curve balls (as are the norm with real estate), were intercepted and made a non-issue, thanks to them. Honestly we were blown away by the speed of the process, and their ability to work around the schedule of our 2 year old, when it came time to walk-throughs and open houses."
Kevin & Julie Y.
"We had an excellent experience working with Diane and Richard to sell our condo in the South End. It was a unique situation because we had tenants in the property that we were trying to sell. Diane and Richard handled the situation perfectly and made the process very easy for us. In the end, they were able to help us find a great buyer, time everything perfectly and all parties (including our tenants) were happy. It was no small feat!"
