History Of CARDANO, Realtors®
History Of CARDANO, Realtors®
Diane Cardano was employed with Prudential Insurance Company for 8 years before she became a Real Estate Consultant. She worked in the Marketing department and studied for her MBA in Marketing. She wanted to take control of her destiny and decided to study for her real estate license. Diane’s father, James Cardano,Sr was a prominent Realtor and Broker in the Philadelphia and Montgomery County area and was a Custom Home Builder. Her father always said that she could do anything she wanted. Diane left her “Corporate America” job to realize her goals and visions.
In May 1993, Diane Cardano became a licensed Realtor and started working for a traditional real estate company, Century 21. She was told to sell, sell, sell. Nothing was taught about service, the client’s emotions during the real estate process or how to help clients reduce the stress. After one year, she was the Rookie of the year and wondered if there was another way of working in real estate without constantly chasing new business.
In November, 1994, Diane was recruited by a RE/MAX franchise in Blue Bell. While working there, she was introduced to Joe Stumpf, a Real Estate Consulting Coach from San Diego, CA. He was in town spreading the word to Realtors that there was another way of doing business... “By Referral Only”, versus chasing new customers every day.
She was told that if she builds long lasting relationships with her clients during the process of buying or selling a home, versus trying to make a commission check, she could build a business by referral. Diane methodically developed systems to give all her clients the same great service and started building a business, one client at a time. She also implemented an “After Sale” service program, so her clients would remember her great service and spread the word. Diane keeps in touch with her clients after the sale with an annual Client Appreciation event, quarterly gift certificates and a pie at Thanksgiving and much more. (Go to www.CardanoRavingfans.com to check out everything Diane and The Team do for their clients AFTER the sale, imagine that!!)
Only after 6 years in real estate, in November, 1999, Diane bought her own RE/MAX franchise, RE/MAX Consultants. Then 10 years later, Diane decided she wanted to give her clients more opportunities. She left the franchise and founded CARDANO Realtors, Cardano Real Estate Experts.
Over the years, she has built a team of 12+ forward thinking professionals. They are ready to give great service to Diane’s clients every minute of the day, seven days a week. The Referral Only philosophy allows Diane and her team to successfully help people reach their goals and earn the right to be their “Personal Real Estate Consultants…For Life”. Diane’s clients are her Raving Fans, not just one-time customers.
Diane and Her Team have hold monthly Home Seller Seminars (www.HomeSellingSharks.com) & Home Buyer Workshops (www.SavvyHomeBuyerWorkshop.com) only for those Savvy consumers who are looking for someone to protect their real estate asset. A firm of real estate experts helping home sellers and home buyers save up to 18% more when selling and buying real estate.
During this process of building her business, Diane was married to her best friend, Stan Casacio… that explains the long Italian last name, Diane Cardano-Casacio. Stan and Diane have built their Dream home in Whitemarsh and know what it takes to believe in your dreams and never settle for less. Diane brings that same positive attitude to her business, making sure her clients have a great real estate experience, while saving them time and money.
