I moved into downtown Charlotte in 1999 and absolutely love the Urban Lifestyle. I got rid of my car in 2004, and started my Real Estate practice that year becoming the only
"Realtor without a Car!"
Church Street Realty came into being in 2010 with the express purpose of focusing on downtown residential Real Estate. Occasionally I venture outside to the I-277 loop, but my practice works best in the downtown market where I can add value to both buyers and sellers of properties.
In the 5 year period from 2016 through 2020 I recorded 47 transactions in downtown Charlotte worth more than $16.9 million. That put me at the 4th highest rated agent in downtown.
My style has always to put my client first and take care of all the details, both big and small so closing becomes a boring event!
Diane got a very big lesson at a very young age that made her realize “stuff” didn’t matter, and that people and time were everything. After losing friends in a tragic accident during high school she got in her car after graduation and left her tiny hometown in Vermont with no plan other than to go, be, do, and see, everything possible. Diane spent 18 years on the road logging thousands of miles, and exploring all 50 states and 17 countries. She has epic stories from conversations with cowboys in Oklahoma City, to tucking her Honda between big rigs in desolate New Mexico, and visiting the home of a woman sewing a sari for her in India. She’s bused around exploring all of Argentina, and she drove The Great Alaska Highway. She’s driven Pacific to Atlantic alone…and more than once. In 2008 she started itching for a way to share her stories with more than just friends & family, so she started a blog called Blue Lollipop Road.
Before moving to Charlotte 8 years ago, she worked at the Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games, on Red Bull’s Mobile Energy Team, and as Operations Manager for Matt Paxton, Host of TV show Hoarders. She’s opened a coffee shop & art gallery, served burgers and beers in Chicago, held many event planning and marketing gigs, was featured on Forbes.com, hosted wine tastings in Napa, and created a travel scholarship fund. (She was even sponsored by Honda!) Her buckets of varied work experience taught her how to run a very tight ship, and become a master of tackling & managing chaos.
Over the years Blue Lollipop Road grew from a travel blog about Diane’s adventures, into a logistics business, being a shot in the arm for her clients to make big life change when they are feeling stuck. Getting her real estate license was the perfect fit for Diane to be able to help her clients take action when they are (literally and figuratively), ready to move.
Diane still travels every chance she gets, for fun and for work with her husband Jason, she loves Nutella & Oreos, wine & cheese, and spending time running and dancing to support her foodie habits. She believe's in staying curious, exploring fearlessly, respecting the clock, and living like you mean it.
Jason was born and raised in Vermont and attended Siena College in Albany, New York. After college, he relocated to Roanoke, Virginia and began a fruitful career in banking. It was in that 17 year career he developed a passion for the lending process and real estate. During those years of his banking days, he enjoyed visiting friends in Charlotte. When he was ready to make a big life change, he moved to the Queen City in 2016. Jason is confident he will always be able to find the best loan and finance options for his clients as they take the huge step to buy a home. He takes pride in being honest, working with integrity, and being prompt in communication with all his clients. In his free time, Jason loves to cook, eat (he will try just about anything), travel with his wife Diane, watch the Dallas Cowboys and play golf.
