I was really lucky to work with Diane and Jen to buy my first condo. In a seller’s market, buying your first place can feel super daunting, but they really empowered me to understand the process, figure out my priorities, and move forward methodically until I found the right place for me.

Ami Jarvis was so informative and helpful from start to finish of my house sale. I would highly recommend Ami and the Diane and Jen team!

Recently I undertook the journey to purchase my first home. This was a daunting and overwhelming process not only because it was my first time but there was also a wee pandemic going on.  The market was tough and there was a lot to learn.  Working with Fiona was a delight however. Her health and safety was always top notch! She had endless energy, enthusiasm and vision! She was patient, kind and had an amazing sense of humour

Sometimes I felt I was touring apartments with a good friend who wasn’t afraid to see my vision or tell me when I was being ridiculous. While there was some disappointments along the way, I have to say the home I ended up buying is perfect. I dug up the email I sent her with my « Must Haves » along with my dream « Wish List » and to my shock every item was ticked off even my joking one…. ok the coffee shop isn’t in the lobby but next door is pretty good! Thanks again Fiona! I couldn’t have done it without you!


The Diane and Jen team was hugely helpful as we navigated the process of buying our first home. As first time buyers the Ottawa housing market is quite daunting. The team was always responsive and flexible, providing honest and pressure-free advice at every step of the way. At each viewing we had confidence that we had the information and support needed for success in a highly competitive market.

We were very appreciative of the team’s advice, helpful referrals, and recommendations from beginning our search to closing (and beyond!).Thank you for your help, we couldn’t have done it without you!


This is our second time working with Diane and Jen! The first time was when we purchased our first family home and without them we would never have considered what turned out to be the BEST neighbourhood for our growing family. We have loved living in Elmvale Acres and would never have known about it without them. We are so grateful. Now as we move into another chapter with our much larger family then when we first met Diane and Jen, they were our first and only choice to sell our home

We needed to sell quickly and on a timeline. The whole experience, as expected, was thorough, honest, professional and successful.

We recommend Diane and Jen to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home! Honest, straight-up, incredibly experienced, KNOW the market, and professional!

Thanks again and we will keep recommending you! All the stars!


The decision to sell our large family home wasn’t made lightly. Even though it was time for us to move on to another phase in our lives it was very difficult for the whole family. Diane and Jen provided the calm energy and ready expertise that made things run smoothly without any drama. The value to us of their efficient team work can’t be overstated. I’m surprised to find myself saying we couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

Buying a first home is a daunting and at times overwhelming process – my husband and I felt lucky to be in the capable and competent hands of Diane and her team. Her expertise saw us through to the successful purchase of our dream home. Diane was consistently responsive, patiently taking the time to explain the details that were hard to grasp as first time buyers. She always emailed or texted back within minutes, and we really felt her on our side through the deal.

We know we’re lucky to have found her, and everyone buying a home deserves to work with a reliable team and come away with a sense of it being a positive experience in the way we have. Many thanks all around!


My husband and I worked with the Diane & Jen team to buy our first house during shifting times in the market and were very happy with their professionalism and dedication to our needs. We first met with both Diane and Jen and they gave us the rundown on the whole process, which was hugely helpful. We then worked with Diane in particular, and she took time to understand our particular preferences and respond to our questions with care. My husband and I tend to have lots of questions and Diane was very patient with us!

They know the market well, and gave us important information and background about all the houses we were particularly interested in. We never felt pushed into buying anything, and in fact it was apparent Diane wanted to make sure we bought the right home for us, not just any home. I would not hesitate to recommend this team to anyone buying a house, and we would definitely go back to them again.

As first time home buyers in a competitive market, we had a great experience working with Diane & Jen. Jeff Allingham was a perfect match for us. We were grateful for his knowledge and experience every step of the way. His experience in construction gave us confidence in his guidance and expertise. He answered our many questions and helped us find a sense of direction.

Even when we weren’t sure what we wanted, he took the time to learn our priorities, make suggestions, and encourage us to see the potential in every space we looked at. We are grateful to have found our first home and we would not hesitate to recommend the Diane & Jen team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Ottawa.Thank you!!

My husband and I worked with the Diane and Jen team to sell our home in Ottawa and they were outstanding. We happened to particularly work with Diane Allingham.

Before choosing a real estate agent, we conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on the investment they make into selling the property (time and effort, not necessarily financially) and how they promote their listings. The Diane and Jen team stood out, we could tell they put a lot of work into their listings.

We first met with Diane who toured our home (all COVID precautions taken) and then spoke with both Diane and Jen virtually. They answered our questions, providing objective data about Engel & Volkers, themselves and the market in Ottawa as well as a clear marketing plan for our upcoming listing. Diane and Jen made the process incredibly easy.When we saw our listing we were blown away. The photographs were gorgeous, the listing was well written and very quickly, our phones were buzzing with showing requests. Diane and Jen’s hard work paid off – we sold our home in one day, way over asking.As for our experience with looking for a home, Diane said from the beginning that they would not “try and sell us a house” but instead, would take the time to help us find the right home. They walked the talk as they offered key insights and feedback to any listing we would send their way for showings, until we found our perfect (for us) home right in the neighbourhood and community we wanted to be in.Selling and buying a home, especially in the current market can be stressful. But it was a smooth ride. We realize it won’t always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better team than the fine folks at Diane and Jen’s.

Thanks for everything!

It would be my pleasure and honor to give you my testimonial of my relationship and experience with Diane and Jen in general and Fiona Morrison in particular. I have known and met Fiona since May 1st 2019 when I first came to Ottawa. I was looking for a house for me and my family and had communicated with hear earlier about our requirements. Fiona took every detail of our requirements and showed me many homes that fit the criteria. Among those were single family detached homes as well as new built townhouses.

Upon my second visit and stay in Ottawa that fall of 2019, we continued our search and found exactly what we were looking for in 2 townhouses at Findlay Creek. Despite being about to be hospitalized, Fiona made sure that all my requirements in the houses were met and answered by the builder.

Unfortunately, we were interrupted by a worldwide Pandemic which delayed our delivery and closing on the houses by another year. This meant being separated from my daughter who was a minor in Ottawa, yet Fiona acted above and beyond the call of duty and helped my daughter all along the way and during the pre-delivery inspection and after!

I am certain that the the house of our dreams would not have being a reality without the efforts and support of Fiona at DianeandJen!!

She was much more of a real estate agent but a friend and mentor and much more.
For any future real estate dealings and transactions, I will only stick with the services of DianeandJen going forward! This will be soon as we will have the closing on our second house in September!

Thank you so much Fiona and all the team behind you at DianeandJen!!


Diane and Jen are incredibly knowledgeable, hardworking, attentive, personable, and client-focussed. They are the best! We bought our first house with their help over 10 years ago, and were delighted to get our dream home in multiple offers. As we grew and our lives changed, we were looking for something a little bigger, but now we were facing a market much more hectic and challenging than what we had known in the past. It took a lot of showings and offers and research and support, and Diane and Jen were right there with us throughout. They managed to help us get our second dream home, and had ours listed and sold just a couple of weeks later. We knew our listing would look great, because theirs always do, but it was also their insight into the market, our property, and our location, that gave us full confidence in them when it came to selling our home on tight timelines. Thanks Diane and Jen!
