About Diane Hood
I am a life long resident in the Tarrant County area but not limited to selling in only Tarrant County. Most of my adult life has been in the sales industry. Being the daughter of a builder, Real Estate and building had always piqued my interest so when I made the decision to sell homes I just switched product. Meeting new people and establishing lasting relationships with clients steered me towards the residential side allowing me to be in on the building end if they decide to build their home instead of purchasing a pre-owned home. It is very gratifying to sit at the closing table watching your buyers and sellers fulfill their dream and move on to the next phase of their life.
I have achieved the honor of being the #1 CENTURY 21® agent in North Texas and #96 nationwide for 2010. I have successfully held the CENTURION® Producer recognition for over 15 years (based on production) and I am a recipient of the CENTURION® Honor Society Award, receiving this award is for a minimum of five consecutive years. I have also remained in the top 100 agents in the CENTURY 21 System since starting with the brand.
Part of my career (19 yrs) was spent in the REO end of real estate. Working with the lenders to get the homes up to living condition if it need be and then get it sold at the best price. This is a very unique part of the business as it sets aside the traditional side of real estate and is in a category of its own. I have a proven track record in the REO world and I loved it and it was my specialty. I achieved a PREFERRED AGENT status with the banks I worked with and it is considered a very unique part of the industry. The REO aspect has helped me develop the skill to consult with my clients on how to avoid getting in this position with their home. Someone can always be there to help council and try to save their home with the right guidance. With the REO experience, I feel that I gained this knowledge and have helped many save their homes.
It’s not always work, I have developed the love of getting involved with a local Jr. Hockey team, the Lone Star Brahmas that are located in the Nytex Sports Center in N Richland Hills. I have become one of the sponsors so these players can fulfill their dream of playing hockey and the possibility of getting a scholarship to college. Playing their dream, go to school and possibly being picked up by one of the NHL teams. It is so gratifying to watch these players receive word that they have been awarded their scholarship, now they have the chance to play their dream and learn at the same time. Going on with their career and have had fun working towards it. Lasting friendships get developed in this sport. Hockey is very much like selling real estate, you watch your buyers and sellers achieve their dream and graduate to the next phase of their life. Staying in touch with your clients and you have gained a life long friendship as well. I love what I do and would love to help you too find your dream home or your forever home. Dreams do come true, just ask my clients or these boys that have been lucky enough to go on with their college career and have fun while doing so.
