About Me

Real estate has always been my passion.  After graduating from Virginia Tech with a major in Property Management and a minor in Real Estate, I knew there was no better place to begin my real estate career than the DC Metropolitan Area.  Though my employment in the field began with a large commercial firm, CB Richard Ellis in Washington, DC, it was always clear that my true calling was in the residential sector.

I transitioned to Century 21 Redwood Realty in the spring of 2007, which history will show was a rough time to enter the industry.  Despite the housing market turmoil, I grew my business and successfully survived – even flourished – in a challenging market. 


Having closed over $200 million in sales volume between 2008 and 2018, I’ve learned that market conditions are no match for hard work; knowledge presents opportunities; and energy invested is never energy lost.  I feel this “education is power” mentality is ever-present in my way of conducting business, interacting with clients, and – eventually – the level of comfort and excitement each client feels when buying or selling their home.

“Diane was incredible! She went above and beyond to make sure that we understood the home buying process and that we felt comfortable as first time buyers. I was blown away by her knowledge of the NOVA market as the home inspection process. Additionally, she helped us negotiate a great package and secured the contingencies we were looking for. Diane is an absolute pro and made us feel so comfortable every step of the way! I would recommend her to anyone. ”
Lili O’Toole, Alexandria (Buyer)

Annie - Arlington, VA (Seller)
“Diane is amazing. We've bought and sold 9 different times over the last 10 years using 8 different real estate agents, and we can honestly say, Diane is hands down, without a doubt, the best real estate agent. Her knowledge, through explanations, honesty, communication, responsiveness, and detail driven approach sets her apart and puts her in a league of her own. We are so appreciative of all of the work she puts into making the home buying and selling process as easy as possible for her clients.”
L. Arlington, Virginia (Seller)
“Our family loved working with Diane Schline again on the sale of our home. She assisted us in our first home purchase and we knew exactly who to call when we were thinking about listing our home. Diane's attention to detail, knowledge of the market and communication style were all key attributes that prompted us to ask for her help again. Diane not only knew how to best list our home and how the market it, but she also knew how to work with our family during this challenging time. We built out full timelines together that worked with our family's schedule. She took the time to help us stage our home with its existing contents and identify key repairs or upgrades that would drive a competitive bidding process. Unfortunately our family is moving out of the Arlington area, but we would fully endorse Diane to our family, friends and any homebuyer in the area. ”
The Rees Family (Seller)

Michael Whelan Annandale, Virginia (Seller)
“Diane has expert knowledge of how to navigate the highly competitive real estate market in Arlington, and helped guide us through the process of making a winning offer. She was proactive, extremely patient, and an excellent communicator, we can't recommend her enough. Diane really knows Arlington! It was great working with Diane, and we don't think our Arlington home buying process would have gone nearly as smoothly without her guidance and expertise.”
Matt and Erin, Arlington (Buyer)
“Daine is bar none, one of the best in Arlington for real estate and personability. Well rounded and thankful we were able to work with her and her team.”
Tom Beach (Seller)
“Diane provided the best home sales experience imaginable. She helped us every step of the way! We were under contract in just 4 days with an offer $30k over our asking price. ”
Carl, Arlington (Seller)
“Diane was amazing! She was a true subject matter expert and adeptly guided us through both the buying and selling process. Truly could not have done this without her!!”
Isabelle & Andrew, Vienna (Buyer)
“Diane Schline is AMAZING! During a pandemic, when no one really knew what the market would be like, Diane helped me sell my condo in record time for an amazing price. Diane is a true expert on the Northern Virginia real estate market. Prior to selling my place, she helped my wife and I sell a rental property and purchase a new condo, again all during the pandemic. Diane knew exactly how to handle every aspect of our real estate adventure. In every interaction with Diane, I left feeling smarter and confident in our reliance on Diane. I'm sure Diane is a very busy realtor, but in every interaction we felt like we were her only clients. She has also assembled an incredible team of professionals to help with every service you could possibly need in real estate (contractor, cleaners, financiers).”
Pete Jeschke, Fairfax (Seller)
“ Diane Schline was the agent for our son & daughter-in-law. They were SO happy with the way she worked with them, we knew we had to reach out to her. Right from the start, Diane was professional, extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. She was very patient and went out of her way to get answers to our endless questions. We presently live in New York. So, Diane was our eyes and ears in Virginia. There were many occasions where it was impossible for us to make a meeting with the seller. Diane stepped in to be our spokes person. She kept us informed and updated on the progress of our new condo, helping us to make informed decisions along the way. We could have NOT done this without Diane. Needless to say, we would HIGHLY recommend Diane Schline to anyone looking to purchase a new home. ”
Heather Huston and Michael Elem, New York (Buyer)
“Wouldn’t ever consider another agent! Just awesome! ”
Louis, Fairfax (Seller)
“Diane gave me excellent tips for ways to maximize the value of my home. I listened to everything she advised, which led to us listing for higher than what I expected, and receiving offers for more than I expected. Diane helped me time the sale of the home perfectly given the very unstable market at the time. She helped coordinate the listing and showings around my somewhat challenging schedule and everything went seamlessly from beginning to end. She is professional, patient, and an expert on the local market. I would recommend her to anyone - and strongly advise that you listen to her suggestions!!!”
Leah Sloane, Arlington (Seller)
“Diane was incredibly helpful helping me, a first time homebuyer, during the challenging times of COVID-19, buying a home from across the country.”
Mike, Alexandria (Buyer)
“Diane Schline was highly recommended by several friends and family, and for good reason! She was extremely knowledgeable about the local market and was invaluable throughout the entire home buying process. She patiently walked me through everything and answered any questions that I had as a first time buyer. I can’t recommend Diane enough!”
James, Arlington (Buyer)
“Diane is the best agent in town. She did an amazing job navigating the changing rules of real estate during a global pandemic. Diane's strategy included simple tweaks to update my property, including using excellent contractors/vendors with good records and quick timelines, found the best staging company, and kept me updated on the market. She determined the best time to list my property leading to a remarkable 70+ private viewings, 21 offers, and, ultimately, $50,000 over asking. My husband and I are still working with her to purchase a new property in Fairfax county, and we want her help selling our current residence in Falls Church. Diane helped us find a great lender, she provides simple explanations of all the important fine print, and wrangles all the real estate stakeholders like a military general while maintaining her southern charm and warm smile. ”
Maureen, Falls Church (Seller)
“Diane was truly fabulous and exceeded every expectation I had. The market for the past 6 months has been particularly challenging for buyers, and Diane helped me navigate this with patience, professionalism, and compassion. She always took the time to explain things in detail, point out things I might miss or not be well informed on, and really helped me understand and feel informed throughout the entire process. We made offers on multiple houses, and she led me through all of the twists and turns of the very competitive scenarios we encountered. I was targeting a specific neighborhood but had some specific desires, and ultimately she helped me find the perfect place and we got a great price. I'm so thankful for her help and will recommend her to many in the future!”
Leah Sloane (Buyer)
“Diane is thorough, knowledgeable, easy to work with, flexible, down to earth, not pushy and an overall excellent agent. I would recommend her to everyone! ”
Sarah Epps / arlington (Buyer)
“Diane came personally and very highly recommended. It was an easy choice for us. She was absolutely terrific - we bought a home relatively quickly but wish we could have worked with her for longer! She understood very quickly exactly what we were looking for (neighborhood, accessibility, etc.) and had very tailored recommendations in mind. Although we would have learned more had we worked with her longer, she did an excellent job coming up with a plan to help educate us on different submarkets. ”
Ben, Arlington (Buyer)
“As always, Diane and her team was a complete pleasure to work with. I have referred Diane to friends since I purchased my first home through her, in 2010. My husband and I continue to refer her to friends and family; her service and local knowledge is unmatched. ”
Amber Yerg (Seller)
“Diane has always been a pleasure to work with, I have referred her to many friends over the last 9+ years and will continue to do so. She is outstanding. Diane was very flexible and quickly adaptable to our ever-changing list of requirements as the market changed. She showed us incredible patience and provided helpful knowledge and insights throughout our home-buying process. Diane's team was amazing - Kristin was such a pleasure to work with. ”
Amber and Alex Yerg, Buchanan Ct (Buyer)
“I would recommend Diane Schline to family, friends, and anyone who asked. She exceeded our expectations in all facets of the process, provided great advice, and just handled everything for us perfectly. She was extremely responsive throughout, so easy to work with, and truly our advocate. ”
Dan Smelcer, Arlington VA (Seller)
“Diane was great in selling our house and helping us buy a house in a competitive market We would not have gotten the house without her assisting us in being competitive in a bidding war. ”
Julie Hamilton (Seller)
