Diane may be best described as all-around fun, but she also knows how to work hard. She has a fondness for downtown Lawrence and loves finding interesting things to do. When asked about her favorite hangouts, she says there are so many amazing spots and outstanding restaurants, it’s too hard to choose! Diane’s personal interests include cooking, gardening, and entertaining.
Diane Becker is proud to be a Lawrence “townie,” having lived here in Lawrence her entire life. She absolutely loves the diversity, liveliness, and opportunities that Lawrence offers. Before coming to Stephens, she worked as an executive assistant in the sales and marketing department at a local fundraising organization and learned the joys and the challenges of marketing and selling yourself and your service or product. The key is to be on top of the market, be enthusiastic, and never stop learning.
Diane managed residential and commercial property for 13 years in the Lawrence area. Her favorite part of property management was building effective relationships and securing a very high retention rate. Her work ethic and honesty have always been the keys to her success. She still sees some of her past tenants around town and delights in catching up with them.
Diane has always enjoyed volunteering in the community, whether by working to raise money for children’s charities through the St. Patrick’s Day Parade events, by co-chairing Project Graduation, or by helping at St. John’s Oktoberfest each year. Diane finds joy in spending time with family and friends, but she feels the best thing she’s done over the years is being involved in her son’s activities. She fondly remembers hosting spaghetti meals for 40 swimmers and being in the stands watching every game and every swim meet. She’s loved it all!
Diane is thrilled to be able to bring her experience and enthusiasm together to help you navigate the buying or selling process and make the journey to your next home a fun and successful adventure!
What clients say about Diane
We live overseas in Germany, so it was especially challenging to find a home from afar. Diane worked with us for most of a year to find a house in the city of our home of record. Diane sent us many options and she made sure she was clear about our expectations. She offered suggestions when needed and if she didn’t know the answer to a question, she asked an expert and got back to us. She looked at many homes and provided commentary for us since we were looking from our computer screens, she did this with a lot of patience. We are very happy with the home that we purchased and the price that we paid. She was especially resourceful when recommending other professionals for our various needs. We would wholeheartedly recommend Diane!

Diane was super responsive and demonstrated great expertise about the Lawrence area, which enabled us to save time and focus on the places that met our requirements. We only had 2 days to fly in and look at homes, yet in that short amount of time Diane picked up on exactly what we were looking for. When we returned home, Diane took the time to FaceTime us homes she thought we would like. Within a week she found exactly what we were looking for. I would recommend Diane to anyone and we will certainly use her again.

Diane is a true treasure to the world of real estate in Lawrence, KS. She helped us find our new home and sell our older home. She is knowledgeable about local builders and everything in the home buying and selling processes. She kept us to our timeline and gave gentle nudges when we needed to take care of something or sign something. We could text her or call anytime with questions about the process and she always got right back to us. She also had numerous local businesses to hire for fixing up our older house. We were happy to have those recommendations. We would recommend Diane to anyone needing a realtor in the Lawrence area.
