Diane was the ultimate professional during my home buying process. She understood my fears as a first time buyer and she was always available to answer my questions. I was amazed at Diane’s knowledge of the rules and procedures involved. Her confidence and encouragement was very reassuring to me as a buyer. I would highly recommend Diane McConaghy and her team to assist with buying or selling a home.megandnate3
Working with Ally was a dream come true! She went above and beyond, and then some. Communication and responsiveness was top notch, she was always calm and friendly, and I can say with confidence that Ally truly knows her real estate stuff. She came prepared and anticipated situations ahead of time. Real estate transactions can be very stressful, but knowing we had Ally in our corner made the whole process so much better. Would HIGHLY recommend working with Ally Wagoner if you are buying or selling a home in the Pittsburgh area!KathleenWalker02
I was going through a rough patch and wanted to buy a new home asap. Sarah and her team answered all of my questions in a straight forward manner and never made me feel awkward for asking questions. They always got back to me right away. Sarah was with me all the way through to closing. She never made me feel like she was "just trying to sell me a house". She took my safety and needs into consideration at each house we saw together. She is sweet and very personable. If I ever have to go through this again, I will definitely seek her out.Melissa Burr
We decided, due to the market surge, to contact a realtor and discuss selling our house a year early (before retirement). We found Diane McConaghy on Zillow and sent a request to her. She contacted us right away and set up a time to come and speak with us. We had a number in mind that would make it worth our time to sell and were frank that , if she didn't think we could get that number, we would not put the house on the market.
After touring the house and reviewing the comps with us (which she had brought to the meeting) we decided to put the house on the market and came up with a timeframe to get ready. She also explained their showing process, and how they would market our property. I asked Diane to go around the house with me and let us know what we needed to do for best showing. We only had to remove a few pieces of furniture in our living room, touch up some paint, and the obvious cleaning and depersonalization. We had intended to replace the carpet before we put the house on the market, and she gave us some great advice about that which saved us time and money.
During the prep time Diane regularly touched base with us to see where we were in the prep stage. Once we were ready, we set up a time for pictures to be taken. The pictures were great! The showed the house accurately, but at its best. She explained the automated appointment showing process to us so we would be looking for requests and respond timely. The house went on the market that afternoon! We also received emails confirming the house was on the market (so exciting!!!).
The appointment process for showings was easy to use and helpful if we could not accommodate someone. However, we didn't have to use it long. Within a week we had multiple offers - and over asking! Diane reviewed all the offers with us and helped us to decide which would work best for our needs.
The offer we accepted wanted a quick closing. The whole team at Remax Select kept us abreast of what was going on, what they were doing, what we needed to do, advice on timeframes etc. so we could plan to find an new temporary place to live and arrange to get there. Even when we goofed things up (we accidentally weren't home when an inspector came) Diane worked to keep things moving.
The closing was simple and, in our case, quick. We are now able to just pick up and move to our retirement destination when the time comes. We can't thank the whole team that we worked with enough for helping us get there and giving us so much less to worry about!Wendy Denny
Ally is very helpful, awesome in her communication. She is very punctual and polite. She listens to your need and shares relevant homes to your need. She plans home visits precisely and alway answers questions with the analysis and shares important documents if possible. That helps a lot.
Thanks for helping us, Ally.VinayAgnihotri
Several years ago, my husband and I started the journey of trying to find a house to call our home. We found Diane by searching and couldn't have picked a better realtor to meet our wants & needs. She was promptly responsive to all of our texts, calls, & emails. Due to our busy work schedules, it was often difficult to find time to view homes, however, Diane was extremely accommodating. I also would like to mention that we were very picky and toured probably 100 homes over the last several years with Diane. She never once became frustrated or inpatient with us and more importantly, she never tried to convince us to buy a home that we were unsure of purchasing. We recently just bought our dream home and she was engaged in the entire process every step of the way. We highly recommend Diane to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! I promise, you will not regret it!dlg 10
As first-time home buyers, we couldn’t have chosen a more knowledgeable, patient, and understanding realtor. Sarah spent months’ worth of weekends with us looking at homes all over the Pittsburgh area - she helped us rule out houses that wouldn’t have been right for us and never pushed us to make on offer when we weren’t ready. She answered all of our emails very promptly and was always just a phone call away. We ended up finding the perfect home in the knick of time as we start our new family, and she helped us through every step of the process. We miss her already!zuser20151002080054434
Diane is a star!
When we were relocated to Pittsburgh from the UK she spent time and effort finding us the right house within our price range.
Nothing was too much bother for her….even as we here if we have a domestic issue…plumbing, ac etc we contact her and she puts us in touch with very professional people.
We highly recommend herannettemknight1
I searched for my first home with Ally as my Agent, and she made the whole process easy and exciting. She was always available to answer any questions I had and was always able to book appointments to go and tour different houses. She was dedicated to help me find a home that I would love. If you are thinking about buying a new house, definitely consider Ally to be your agent. You will not be disappointed.briceb29
We were in a dire situation where I had taken a new job in Pittsburgh with a start date of a month away and being across the country, we did not have the means, resources or time to look for homes in a conventional manner.
Good thing for us we found an unconventional and expert problem-solving agent with Sarah. I knew within the first few minutes of speaking with her that she not only understood our situation, but had a plan for execution. Sarah did whatever was necessary and beyond, including spending her entire weekend over Zoom and Facetime allowing us to tour homes virtually, to helping us find a lender when ours turned flaky, to picking up a paint brush to satisfy stringent FHA paint inspection on a home we moved forward on.
I type this review in the very home that Sarah made possible. Matter of fact, the entire move and ability to start a dream job for me was only made possible because of Sarah. We quite literally owe our future to Sarah. I cannot endorse or recommend her any higher. She is a five-star agent and a five-star human being.
Thanks for everything, Sarah!myopicmusician
Sarah was amazing...it was like having your best friend help you find the home of your dreams! She was so supportive and patient with us through the entire process. Her positive outlook is so refreshing and she was always available to answer questions and address concerns. My family and I are very happy with our new home and thankful we had Sarah to guide us through it all. I would recommend her and her team to anyone!Lynn O'Hara
Samantha was absolutely amazing! She first took my dad and I to look at a few houses for me, and when I went by myself for the remainder of the houses, she already knew what I was looking for, and what I was going to ask before I even asked! She quickly learned what I was looking for and was open and honest if she thought I would love or absolutely hate something. She was also very respectful if I still asked to see a property she didn’t think I would like (and she was always correct, that I didn’t like it!). She was always very quick to respond and very thorough in her answers. She didn’t just try to “sell a house”, she made sure that I absolutely loved the one I was going to make a home. Would definitely recommend Samantha!Amanda Goddard
Sarah was great to work with. She was patient with us through the housing search and the ups and downs that presented in this crazy market. Her availability through the search was more than accommodating to meet our needs. When it came time to sell our house, things could not have gone smoother on both ends, buying and selling. We were under agreement with a fantastic offer after a weekend of the house being on the market, and we were able to get a fair price on the home we have purchased. We would definitely work with Sarah again, if the need should arise.whatlang19
Sarah went above and beyond to help us find a residence during this difficult market for buyers. We were on a strange timeline and juggling a long distance move. She always had a smile on her face taking us many miles in one day to find the right situation for us. We fielded a million questions and special requests her way and she was always knowledgeable and willing to help solve problems. We will be contacting her during our next move to a bigger house in the future. We highly recommend this agent for your buying, selling, and renting needs.zuser20180119182326181
Had listed my home with another agency for 6 months with limited showings and no offers. I then took the house off the market and interviewed several agents before selecting a realtor. After selecting Diane, I received multiple offers and sold my home at list price. Diane is a full time agent and has a team assisting her in marketing and following up on leads. Selecting Diane proved to be the right decision as she was knowledgeable about the home's value, always responsive and kept a steady flow of potential buyers through the property. I am a completely satisfied customer of Diane McMonaghy and her team!629buffalo
From the first time we meet over the phone I knew we were in good hands. Sarah understood exactly what we were looking for, she's an expert in the Pittsburgh region. She managed us and the process so well; from the real estate hunt, the negotiations, through the closing process - each step, available and eager to help, let alone all through Covid. Oh and she's fun! She's got a great sense of humor to go along with her real estate acumen. I 100% recommend her along with her teamjohnsonmgj9
Diane not only helped us find a buyer for our parent's home, she also kept us going every time an obstacle came our way. She not only gave us her expert advice but also a lot of her time. She is truly professional and knows the real estate business and the neighborhoods that she works in. We were blessed when we met her and hired her to work for us. We are extremely happy with the results she got us. We would not hesitate to recommend her and her services to anyone buying or selling a house.rt jageman
We were thinking of putting our house on the market in Rochester, NY and moving to the Pittsburgh area. At first, our emails went back and forth and I outlined our criteria for a house. We also wanted it to be within 30 minutes of our daughter's Lawrenceville home.
Ally did a great job, and as soon as we had a buyer, we zipped down and looked at the houses she had arranged for us. We went to Pittsburgh 3 times. When we had a buyer we were pressed for time. Ally went all over the Pittsburgh area with us, and every time I found a home online, she researched it and got us in to see it.
Ultimately, we found the home we wanted. Unfortunately, while we were reading the disclosures they accepted another offer! Still, Ally persisted, reminding us we didn't want to settle for something we really didn't like just to get a house. She brought us out again, and we found just the right house. We are very happy!
Ally Wagoner has the patience of a saint. She helped us so much, with our strict criteria making that quite a task. She was kind to me when anxiety got the best of me and commiserated with us when we lost out on the house I wanted. I can't imagine anyone who could have done more for us, all the time with a smile on her face. She is truly a gem!

Diane helped me to find the perfect location for my new hair salon in Bethel Park. To say that she is thorough would be an understatement! From negotiations to closing, Diane was on top of every detail of the process which I was so grateful for. Commercial properties are complex, but Diane navigated the process with ease making me very comfortable along the way. Even during the 2020 pandemic, she made the process seamless. I would highly recommend Diane and her team for both commercial and residential buying and selling.suzi388
Ally contacted me right away and made note of specific items I was looking for in a home. During a very competitive time she always made sure offers were in by deadlines with all of the necessary information. She kept me well up to date throughout and was very helpful in answering a lot of questions. I appreciate all the hard work Ally put in to schedule showings and effectively communicate to the sellers. I highly recommend her and would definitely reach out to her if I am ever looking for a house again.agy5012
Sarah was great. At a time when houses became available and just quickly, were sold, time was of the essence. Sarah was always available and quick to move at all stages of the search. A joy to work with. Early on it felt like we were working with a friend just as invested in find the perfect place. In the end, she didn’t just facilitate us buying a house, she walked the journey with us to find a home.fjoseph1013
We were very fortunate to have Diane as our Realtor as we looked for our new Townhome.She was very patient as we searched Townhome after Townhome until we found what was right for us. She was also very responsive and accommodating to all of our concerns and questions and gave us great guidance throughout the entire process of purchasing our Townhome. We were extremely comfortable with Diane. Her professionalism was impeccable and I would not hesitate to refer others to her.zuser20180526145604723
Diane listed my mother's home in Cranberry Township. She knew that we needed to get a good price for the home since the proceeds would be needed for her care down the road. She kept me up to date on all viewings and when an offer came in quickly, but as a result of the home inspection, the buyers wanted a lot of work done by closing, she helped me work through my decision by providing her experience in the past. As it turns out, we were able to sell the house within a couple weeks at a higher price than we would have gotten if we would have accepted the first offer and completed the work the buyer wanted. I would highly recommend Diane for any of your real estate needs.cagrimm5
I could not have been more impressed; Megan Stevenson made the home buying experience very enjoyable!! From start to finish, she maintained a high level of professionalism throughout the entire transaction. Anytime a house came on the market that she thought I might like, she was just as excited as I was. I would highly recommend Megan Stevenson to anyone in the market looking for their new home or next rental property.rawlanddeal

Megan helped us tour homes and eventually purchase a home when we decided to move back to PA from CA. She was extremely nice and professional, she was knowledgable about the areas we were checking out, and she was incredibly responsive during the entire purchase processes. She helped us move quickly as well. We went from touring homes to putting in an offer within just a few days, and negotiations were quick and painless. I would highly recommend working with Megan if you're looking to buy a home!cerminaraam
Ally is the single most professional person that I have ever worked with. You will not find a better realtor out there. She went out of her way time and time and time again to do everything in my favor. She was doing not only her job at a professional level, but others people’s jobs who were greatly slacking. Ally made sure we were kept up to date at all times with what was going on. If we had a question, she was quick to respond. If she did not know the answer to the question, she quickly would reach out to someone who did. I can not say enough good things about Ally. Kind and professional throughout the whole process. Do not hesitate for a single second to utilize Ally as a realtor! She is simply amazing!sam mersing
Looking for an Agent? Call Ally. Ally listed my home and got me an offer on my home in mere days. She also did everything possible to help me find my new townhome during these COVID times. Ally’s response time was impressive! When I wanted to see a home, Ally will get me in so quickly to see the home always arriving early for the showing. Ally would point out both positive and negatives of the home to help me make an educated choice. Every step of the way Ally was there with me to make the buying process easy! Thanks Ally.user3823318
Diane was honest and respectful. My wife and I ran her all over the countryside because of the type of home we were looking for. She was always on time and answered our questions and e-mails in a timely manner. I was pleased with how quickly she worked to show us the homes we were interested in.DanielleYoung8
What a great experience!
The number one thing we were looking for was someone who was experienced and would be responsive to our questions since we were first time home buyers.
We got that in Diane. I can't say enough about how smooth the process was. She led us every step of the way to make sure all key items were completed ahead of schedule. She truly cared about the experience we had when purchasing our home. I can't thank her enough for helping me and my family with the biggest purchase we have ever made!josephwgayle
Sarah was very helpful in my recent home purchase. She helped me as an investor in a duplex and knew everything I wanted before I could ask for it. She helped me through the negotiations process and pushed me through to closing quickly and efficiently. I will be using her services in the future!spolsky properties
I cannot recommend Diane and her team enough! As a first time home-buyer during COVID-19 my boyfriend and I were nervous about being able to find the 'right home'. We gave Diane a list of what we were looking for in a home and she got to work immediately sending us a list of available houses. She kept us up to date on COVID-19 real estate regulations and let us know that she was in this for the long run, which was very comforting to hear. However, we didn't have to wait long because within two weeks of our initial meeting we had found our home! Once we had made our offer and began the closing process Diane and her team displayed a professional attitude and let us know what needed to be completed and in what time frame. Working with Diane and her team was a wonderful experience and I will continue to recommend her to any friends and family looking to buy!abbywalters82
I can't say enough nice things about Diane McConaghy and how she and her team worked to market our family home in Moon Township. She expanded the reach and scope of the advertising, contacted potential buyers and talked to them about the house, she found new potential buyers and managed the closing activities very well. She also provided us with advice and counsel on the property value, property issues, and kept an eye on the house so it was spotlessly clean at all times. What a great person to have working with us. I'm very impressed....!jwalsh087
I can’t say enough good things about having Diane McConaghy as my realtor! My wife and I have been looking for a retirement home and were in no hurry to buy until we found something that was “just right” for what we wanted. Over the course of our 2 year search, Diane gave us many alerts of new Listings for us to consider. She seemed to be available both day and night to quickly respond to any of my (MANY, MANY) questions. During our search we interacted with several seller Realtors whose performance made me even more convinced that Diane was a great selection for me. Diane has the highest integrity. She made sure that ALL of my concerns were addressed, and my interests protected, in the wording of several offers/agreements. We just closed on our property and I am very, very happy to HIGHLY recommend Diane for anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. THANK-YOU DIANE! It really was a pleasure working with you.kevin51160
Ally was the perfect agent! She was incredibly patient throughout every step of the process. Whenever I had a house I wanted to check out, Ally was able to make accommodations for us immediately for a viewing. We always had a debriefing period where she gave us an assessment of the house and I was able to ask any kinds of questions. Once we had the house we wanted, Ally helped work through my inexperience and pushed us to the end with professionalism and knowledge of the industry.Ryan Mellor
I couldn't recommend Sarah more! She was wonderful to work with, very responsive and knowledgeable. I relied heavily on her communication skills and understanding of the local market due to the fact that I was buying out of state. I look forward to working with her again in the near future!peephughes
We spoke with three other agents before deciding on Diane. She was thorough, professional and, in hindsight, very accurate regarding her assessment of our house, it's value, and what needed to be done to put it on the market. She was always readily assessible to discuss our concerns and questions. From beginning meeting til closing, she delivered on EVERYTHING she planned for us. Couldn't have been more satisfied and would recommend her without any hesitation.zuser20160719055751186
Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! She walked me through the home buying process every step of the way. During my house hunting/purchasing, she was available outside of normal business hours and very responsive and detail orientated.
Sarah is super friendly and very easy to work with! You can tell how much she loves her job. She truly listened to my wish list and found some great options to show me.
I would highly recommend using Sarah for your realtor needs!zdiberadin
I was extremely impressed by Ally as our real estate agent. She was very attentive and always available for us (even with our endless questions) ! She was honest, extremely patient, and thorough throughout the entire process. I couldn't thank her enough for all of her hard work, and dedication! I would highly recommend Ally for any and all of your real estate needs!clang412
Diane made the whole process of buying a home stress-free and easy. She is very professional, knowledgeable and on top of every detail - and also a person of high integrity. It was a pleasure to work with her and I'd highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a reputable and effective real estate broker.maggie7922
