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 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)
“Diane took the time to really understand our wants and needs. She was proactive in all aspects of the sale and followed up on everything. We never had to ask anything because she kept us in the loop at every juncture. We have purchased and sold several pieces of property over the years and we only wish we had met Diane sooner. Our experience with her and Century 21 Redwood Realty was leaps and bounds above all others we’ve worked with. Thanks Diane and team! ”
Mil & Doreen, Arlington (Seller)
“As first time home buyers Diane was wonderful. She was patient and extremely informative. Diane also guided us when we had a lot of back and forth with the seller during the home inspection addendum. Even when there were last minute changes that should have caused stress, Diane had already done a lot of research to present realistic solutions which helped expedite the process and make us feel extremely secure that we were in very good hands. She alleviated the majority of the stress throughout this entire process which is a testament to all of her dedication and hard work. We couldn’t be more grateful and plan to use Diane again in our future home buying/selling endeavors. ”
Frani and John - Vienna (Buyer)
“Diane and Kristin are a dynamic duo! They helped secure the perfect home for us and made our first-time home buying experience a truly delightful experience. My wife & I were pretty intimidated by the process from the onset, but Kristin guided us every step of the way and was superbly detail-oriented, proactive, and responsive. We cannot recommend Diane and Kristin highly enough!”

“Diane Schline gained our full trust in the process by always being thoughtful, understanding our needs, and never pushing us to make decisions we weren't comfortable with. We always felt well taken care of, and she was always on top of everything. We would recommend her without reservation for anyone looking for a home.”
David & Phoebe, Falls Church (Buyer)
“Diane and Kristin helped us immensely in buying our first home. We knew very little going into the process, but Diane was always ready to point us in the right direction. We felt as if we were her only clients. She was highly responsive and every contractor she recommended was phenomenal. I would have no hesitations sending anyone I knew to her and her team. The most sincere thank you!”
Scott and Courtney, Falls Church (Buyer)
“If you are considering a home sale/purchase in Northern VA, you should reach to Diane Schline and her team immediately! Diane was incredibly knowledgeable about the market we were exploring, providing critical guidance during our intense home search. Diane coordinated all aspects of both our purchase and sale with the utmost professionalism, negotiating our terms and exceeding our expectations. The marketing materials and professional photographs were outstanding, ultimately securing an especially short close on the sale of our existing home. I can't emphasize Diane's performance well enough. It was a genuine pleasure working with Diane and her team and I would strongly recommend them to friends, family and neighbors!”
Matt Huston, Arlington (Seller)
“Diane helped a couple of friends buy a house and came highly recommended. Diane is the most amazing realtor! She was a dream to work with - and I would recommend her to anyone! Cannot rate her highly enough across the board! I wish there was a higher rating than excellent because Diane earned it!”
Erica Huston-Elem (Buyer)
“Diane Schline is one of the most professional, dynamic and efficient individuals I have encountered in any business dealing environment. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and her team.”
Jim Klein, Annandale, Virginia (Seller)
“Diane and her partner Kristin were excellent to work with. They took the time to understand our situation and needs and were very patient in finding and showing appropriate properties. There was no pressure and we never felt we were a burden to her. Diane did excellent research on the properties we were interested in. The final negotiation was aggressive and successful. Her attention to detail was excellent in all aspects of the transaction. Will definitely use her for our future real estate needs and recommend her to friends and colleagues. ”
Stew and Ellen, Alexandria, VA (Buyer)
“We recently bought our first house with Diane Schline. We had been looking for houses for 6 months prior to meeting her, and we were very unimpressed with our previous brokers. My colleague who bought in the area that we were looking at raved about Diane so we decided to interview her and a couple of more agents. Once we met her, I immediately knew she was the right broker for us! She really was an expert in the area that we were looking to buy and she understood our needs as first time homebuyers. She is very detailed oriented, her experience is just impressive and she is very responsive. We found our home just on our second property visit with Diane and we knew it was going to be too competitive to get it, but she put together a very strong offer for us. She had to deal with a lot of frustrations with the listing agent and I applaud her professionalism and patience throughout the process. She made everything easy for us and she never felt the need to get us involved in any unnecessary issues. I know that if we end up selling and buying another house in the area, Diane will be our choice! ”
Pri in Falls Church (Buyer)
“Diane was/is a amazing, knowledgeable professional. She was attentive to my "must haves" and was simply a delight to work with!”
Luellen Matthews, Arlington-VA (Buyer)
“My husband and I could not have asked for better realtors to guide us through our first home buying experience. Diane and Kristin were incredibly patient and understanding throughout the whole process. They took the time to really listen to what we were looking for in a home and helped us to evaluate what things were most important to us when viewing and selecting a house. They were quick to answer any question we had and explained the process to us in a way that made sense and was easy to comprehend. As my husband and I have found, sometimes it takes viewing 10, 20, 30 houses before finding "the one," which can be frustrating, but Diane and Kristin always maintained a positive attitude and outlook which put us at ease. They truly went above and beyond what I would have expected from a realtor. I am so thankful to have had these ladies aide us in finding and buying our first home! ”
Katherine Robinson, Springfield (Buyer)
“Diane Schline was an outstanding agent to work with. Even though we were one of her many clients, we always felt as if our priorities or requests came first. Her level of customer service and response time was second to none. This was our first time going through the home buying process. Diane spent the time to walk us through all first-timer questions and helped us look at properties in many new ways. She also took the time to walk us through the lengthy sales contracts and was with us every step of the way through the contract finalization/closing process. Diane’s knowledge of the market and Arlington County was a great asset and contributor to our home buying success. We look forward to working with Diane and her team again and would highly recommend their services.”
Lance Rees, Arlington (Buyer)
“Diane Schline went above and beyond as our realtor! Her commitment and dedication to us was outstanding. Diane had our best interest at the forefront of her efforts and went to bat for us very successfully during the offer and negotiation process. We could not have had a better first time (VA loan) home buying experience. Her knowledge of the area, market and process made us feel at ease and comfortable with every decision along the way. She displayed genuine care for us and provided that personal service with upmost professionalism exceeding our expectations. I highly recommend Diane to anyone seeking to buy a home!”
Grant H., Alexandria, VA (Buyer)
“Diane is the best. Very responsive, always provides information that is accurate and on time. Has thoroughly thought through her conclusions about bid/counter/logistics with regard to the process working towards the contact. She's a strong negotiator and was able to reign in the buyer to an equitable solution for all parties. Ultimately she made this process super easy and stress free and would use her again in a heart beat. I would recommend Diane to any and all, my experience was nothing but positive. Thank you Diane, you are the best!”
Derek S., Fairfax (Seller)
“Our friends had bought a townhouse with Diane Schline as their agent and only had positive things to say about her, so we reached out to Diane in hopes that she was available and could take us on as clients! (Thankfully she was!) Diane handled everything in regards to the sale of the condo -- from the coordination and handling of the few items we had to get fixed/replaced, etc to the staging and marketing to the final closing. She kept us in the loop at all times and we didn't have to worry about anything. Diane made the whole selling process very easy for us! Not only is Diane very knowledgeable in real estate in Arlington and was thorough in explaining everything, but she is very friendly, trustworthy, and very reliable. Based on her expertise, she recommended a price point for the condo that helped us to get a contract only a few days after listing. I can't say enough good things about Diane! ”
Samira White, Arlington (Seller)
“Diane was recommended by a friend who had a successful experience with her and we could not have been happier. When we initially met with her it was 6 months before we actually started to make a move to purchase. She was so knowledgeable and approachable that we didn't feel it necessary to look elsewhere. Communication with Diane was excellent. She was happy to speak with us outside of work hours and in the late evening to make things happen. She was so knowledgeable and answered all the questions we had as first time home buyers honestly and in a way where we understood everything. Buying a condo with her was easier than buying our car. That is how amazing she is!”
Hillary and Max Hamm, Arlington VA (Buyer)
“Diane Schline is a highly talented agent, who professionally guided us through the sale of our beloved home. Characteristics that stand out include: knowledgeable, possesses a high business IQ, trustworthy, very responsive, kind-hearted, positive, strong verbal/written communicator, market savvy, et al.”
Allan & Frances Kalkstein, 1549 22nd Street N, Arlington, VA 22209 (Seller)
“We worked with Diane 5+ years ago when purchasing our first home in Arlington. We met her randomly at an open house she was holding. From the get go it was obvious that Diane was an Arlington expert, specialized in our demographic, was extremely professional, and knew what she was doing. We have since referred her to several friends and they all echo that feedback. When looking to move this time we didn't even consider contacting another realtor and will do the same if we move again ing a few years. As stated before, we worked with her in the past, have referred her to several friends, and will work with her again in the future. Our home essentially sold within 2 hours of listing. Technically it was two days before the final terms and sales price were agreed upon and contracts signed. Diane offered very knowledgeable and professional counsel when the offer came in. Without being pushy and outright telling us what to do, Diane persuaded us to take the offer rather than hour for a post open house bidding war. In hindsight this was an excellent decision. Also prior to listing Diane was aa huge help giving us instructions to prepare the house for sale and staging it. She definitely was instrumental in us getting top dollar for our home.”
Ann Lowe, Arlington VA (Seller)
“I live in Florida and my property is located in Virginia. Diane was exceptional in handling this "remote" relationship and the remote transaction and communications between me, the prospective tenants and their realtor. This process could NOT have been a smoother more successful transaction. I truly enjoyed working with and having Diane represent me and my interests during this transaction. ”
Joyce Cooper (Seller)
“Diane was fantastic. Second time I've worked with her and you feel like you have an edge with her as she's extremely sharp, polished, and on top of her game at all times. I would recommend her services (and have) to any of my friends or acquaintances. ”
Alex, Arlington VA (Buyer)
