Diane Allingham


Each client, buyer or seller, has different criteria and expectations – and I have worked with a wide and diverse range since joining this great profession. As a top producer, experience has honed strong negotiation skills and strategic thinking. My approach is confident and assertive when it needs to be, warm, personable and professional always. I appreciate the differences between clients and adapt accordingly to ensure that you achieve your desired outcome and the gratification of a positive, fun experience. I am absolutely passionate about the profession of real estate and have sat on committees as a volunteer for the Ottawa Real Estate Board since 2008, including the Professional Standards and MLS committees and currently sit as a volunteer on the Nominating Committee. In 2014, I served as a Director of the Board, an elected position which I accepted with the utmost humility and appreciation from my fellow Realtors.

Ottawa Real Estate Agent Diane Allingham

Prior to becoming a real estate Sales Representative and then Broker, I enjoyed a lengthy career in high technology Marketing & Communications, always focused on the customer.

Having bought, sold and lived in various neighbourhoods since arriving in Ottawa in 1987, I have owned new and old homes myself – and survived both construction and many a renovation! Originally from New York, I am proud to call Ottawa home and happily reside in Alta Vista with my husband, children and two dogs.

“Diane and Jen are a great team! Their knowledge and expertise served us well in finding the perfect property. They were always prompt, patient, and professional! We relied on them heavily during the property search and came to trust and value their honest and opinions. They also went that extra mile to refer their contacts in the legal, construction, and trades world to ensure the purchase process was seamless. We highly recommend this dynamic duo!”
