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 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)
“After looking for a home in Arlington for almost a year, we finally found the house we wanted and put in an offer. Once our offer was accepted we looked forward to a quick closing. Unfortunately for us, a neighbors tree had other ideas and ended up destroying all 3 bedrooms prior to us closing. Diane Schline continuously kept us updated on what was going on even with one of the most difficult sellers any of us had ever encountered. Against all odds and mostly against the sellers wishes we eventually closed on the home 4 months later and we can't thank Diane Schline enough for consulting lawyers, consulting other realtors and keeping us in the loop as much as possible of the housing updates. We will again and again mention and recommend Diane Schline to anyone who is looking for a realtor in the Northern Virginia market. ”
Scott Mosher, Arlington VA (Buyer)
“Diane Schline was awesome to work with. We struggled through a very 'hot' market, and she was with us every step of the way. She remained positive (and realistic) throughout the search, and was so helpful and informative with the many, many things we didn't understand or know about. I'd recommend her to anyone who needs help finding a house, and especially anyone who is picky :). ”
Ariel D, Annandale, VA (Buyer)
“Working with Diane Schline allowed me to continue with my life knowing she would advise me well and handle what needed to be done without me needing to be engaged. The selling and buying process went smoothly b/c of Diane, she was absolutely on top of all aspects that came up for me and was very clear in walking me through any nuances that arose. ”
Travis in Reston, VA (Seller)
“We sold our house in a matter of days. We received multiple offers. We could not have been happier with Diane's efforts. Diane helped us work through a few issues that popped up during the home inspection and rent back period. She was helpful in discussing options and getting to a solution that worked for us. We really appreciated the way she handled things all around. We were very happy with Diane's services. She was professional, responsive and an experienced professional. She was always willing to discuss options and talk through various scenarios. We got to a great result and owe much of the effort to Diane. Thank you so much!”
Matt and Kaitlyn (Seller)
“She is the best agent I have ever thought of. She is not only a real professional agent who is very familiar with the area but also very nice and kind as a person. Her professionalism and dedication to the client are top notch. She is always smily and friendly even during the tough process, which is appreciated to make myself relaxed and comfortable. I highly recommend her to whoever looking for the best home for them. I am really glad to be able to work with her this time and very much look forward to the next opportunity.”
Takeaki Sato (Buyer)
“Diane is the best. She is a great communicator and kept us informed of every detail along the journey. I would use Diane to buy and sell any home is Northern VA and I would recommend her to any of my friends and family. She is delightful to work with and I appreciate the effort she put into sellng our home. ”
Dottye Bunch, Richmond, VA (Seller)
“Diane was able to establish in us, from the beginning, a very high level of trust and confidence. She provided her expert opinions based on the specifics of our circumstances and preferences, allowing us to make well informed decisions. Diane is truly a consummate professional, who was extremely personable at the same time. ”
Leighton & Eboni Priestley, Burke, VA (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!”
Shane Pummill, Reston (Buyer)
“Diane is very responsive, professional, a total class act! The entire process was a breeze! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell! Any issues that arose were handled quickly and professionally! Diane is the best of the best!”
Annie from Springfield Va (Seller)
“This is the second real estate transaction I have completed with Diane and I will continue to engage Diane for future real estate transactions. ”
