Diane Allingham


With complete commitment to my clients and a true passion for the real estate profession, I have been helping buyers and sellers navigate their real estate journeys since 2003. Mostly, I relish the relationships built with clients as we travel through the buying and selling experience.

Over the years, experience, strong negotiation skills and strategic thinking have combined to produce top results. I face everyday with optimism and an appreciation for constant learning. My approach is confident (assertive when it needs to be), warm, personable and always professional.

With a full appreciation for what makes each client unique and every transaction different, I find deep gratification in achieving the desired outcome and leaving clients with a positive, fulfilling and fun experience.

Since 2009 I have volunteered on multiple committees for the Ottawa Real Estate Board and in 2014 served as a Director of the Board, an elected position which I accepted with the utmost humility and appreciation from my fellow Realtors.

Prior to becoming a real estate Sales Representative and then Broker, I enjoyed a lengthy career in high technology Marketing and communications, where my focus was always 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 City and a McGill graduate, I am proud to call Ottawa home and happily reside in my empty nest in Alta Vista with my husband and two dogs.

What clients are saying

Selling your home is never easy and is often quite stressful, but Diane and Jen were there to provide excellent support and guidance throughout the entire process and were always available whenever we needed help or had a question. It was a pleasure working with Diane and Jen. We highly recommend them.

Thanks to the entire team for helping us get our house sold in less than 3 days!

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!
