About Diane Ragonese

“I am committed to being your trusted advisor throughout the real estate process”

Buying and/or selling a home is an important, personal decision. With over 18 years in the financial services industry and a personal interest in purchasing and renovating homes, I understand the market and the emotional and financial commitment my clients feel when buying or selling their home.   I am committed to ensuring my clients make informed decisions and have a pleasurable, satisfying experience throughout the process.

Originally from Connecticut, I moved to Charlotte in 2003 and joined Bank of America. As an executive, I gained experience leading successful teams, resolving complex issues, negotiating agreements, interfacing with Regulators, and implementing large-scale compliance, operational risk, and retail banking initiatives both in the US and abroad.  Prior to joining Bank of America, I was with MasterCard International in New York and Philo Smith & Co., a boutique investment bank located in Stamford, Connecticut.

Upon moving to Charlotte, I lived in the university area and then moved closer to Uptown and purchased and renovated homes in Chantilly, Elizabeth, and Eastover.  My interest in real estate goes back decades working on home improvements, additions, and renovations with my father, a retired Electrician. Since I have always been drawn to making homes beautiful and functional, I have experience in staging, renovation, design, landscaping, and construction.

I currently reside in Eastover, with my husband, Jason, young son, Austin and our golden-doodle, Winston.  I enjoy spending my free time with my family, traveling and experiencing new cultures, hiking, golfing, sailing, landscaping, gardening, decorating, and home improvement projects.  I also have a passion for engaging in hands on volunteer work and was a recipient of the 2008 US President’s Volunteer Service Award and Habitat Global Village Award for the work I completed in remote Kawama Village, Zambia.

Diane Byrd did an excellent job guiding me through the process of purchasing my new home. The seller's were not very flexible but Diane managed to negotiate for me a little more than they were willing to to do in the beginning. Diane was always available to work with the sellers to allow me access to the property when it was necessary to take measurements, etc. She gave... Read More

Diane is a highly detailed oriented and knowledgeable real estate professional. Her knowledge of the Charlotte market (in markets like Eastover, Myers Park, and essentially all of Charlotte) is second to none and she comes highly recommended by me.

I had such a great experience with her the first time. I did not even think about using anyone else. She is amazing!!!!!! Diane goes way above and beyond the call of duty in all areas.

I would highly recommend Diane for anyone buying or selling property.

‐ Kelly B. Tate

Diane Byrd was highly referred by a friend. I was immediately impressed by her. I wouldn't have worked with anyone else after meeting Diane. She was able to sell my home within 24 hours after listing. After deciding to sell my home, I never dreamed I would have anyone do as much for me as Diane did. She even helped me pack! I couldn't have had a better agent.

‐ Mary Costner Inman, Charlotte

Diane is so thorough, always communicates timely and effectively. She is a pleasure to work with and her demeanor is always great but she is especially helpful if things get stressful because she is calm, professional and has great solutions. I have used her for my last 3 real estate transactions and will continue to use her and recommend her in the future.

Diane Byrd was always so accessible and happy to answer my many, many questions. She was very knowledgeable about the area. She helped coordinate all inspections and had several great recommendations for contractors. She made the experience enjoyable and easy!

Diane did an excellent job negotiating with the construction company that built my house. There was a period where the contractor was not delivering a timely or complete product and Diane invested a lot of energy staying on top of all critical details and ensuring the contractor stayed on task. She is very knowledgeable about construction. I really enjoy working with Diane... Read More

I could not have had a better experience with Diane Byrd and Helen Adams. My Dilworth Heights townhouse went under contract within a few hours for full asking price. Her help with staging allowed the place to show fantastic. Her professionalism continued through all parts of the sales process, from inspections and additional negotiations with the buyer to moving checklists... Read More
