Diane is amazing! She was a huge advocate for us through every step of the home-buying process. She really listened to our wants/needs and went above and beyond to help us find our dream home. She was always available to help answer our questions. She also did a great job of communicating about each step of the process. I cannot recommend her enough! Brady & Alison B
Diane was so helpful and informative when my husband and I were looking for a condo to purchase. She listened to us and helped us to get what we wanted. Brent & Laura B
Diane was honest, open, and thorough in her negotiations. She is very familiar with the entire Omaha area and is a great realtor. She made sure to answer all communications promptly and secured information requested in a timely manner. I very much enjoyed working with her and would do so again. Rosy I
Diane is an excellent realtor, and we would not hesitate to work with her again. She is very knowledgeable, professional, proactive, trustworthy, and easy to work with. Our house was under contract when we moved to another state. Diane did a great job helping us complete the sale even though we were over 1000 miles away. Without question, we highly recommend Diane Wyatt & Ali S
We found Diane to be very flexible and enthusiastic. She was very responsive to all communications, and followed through. We are so excited and can’t wait to move in.

Diane Speck of Omaha Nebraska was great to work with. This was a difficult transaction from the very beginning. Her expertise in the Downtown area, and her professionalism made it easier in selling my Row House in the Old Market area. Her consistent follow through with me and her negotiating skills helped to close on the transaction at the end. She was prepared from the very beginning and dealt professionally with every issue that arose pertaining to the offers , sales and closing. I highly recommend Diane
Diane helped us buy our first condo in the old market an the experience was great! she goes well above and beyond for her clients! We had mentioned to her that we might be interested in something bigger down the line. She contacted us one day to show us a condo that was for sale by owner. We loved it and bought it and can’t thank her enough for being so on top of the market and getting us in to see it right away. In addition – she found us a renter for our other condo! Cannot give Diane enough praise for all she has done for us! You will have a much better experience – whether it is renting buying or selling – with her on your side!
I had never been to Omaha and only had about two hours on a Saturday afternoon to hopefully find a place for my daughter who was starting dental school at Creighton. Diane was on time and had appointments scheduled for about every thirty minutes. She was knowledgeable about the area and knew the safe places for my daughter. We ran through one condo after another. What I like about Diane is that she was not trying to rush me into a quick sale. She helped us with the transaction we settled on at the Beebe + Runyon. I would highly recommend Diane– 5 STAR RATINGS in : Local knowledge/Process expertise/Responsiveness/Negotiation skills:
Diane was simply outstanding. I am active duty military, and was selling my home in Nebraska from overseas. Throughout the process, Diane was responsive, proactive, and effective. I correctly trusted her judgement in the pricing of my home (I was skeptical it would sell for as much as it did). She also coordinated and managed home repairs in conjunction with the sale. Diane is a top notch agent, and you would be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable, personable, and effective agent!
Diane, Thank you for your help in purchasing our condo! It was a very smooth experience and we really appreciated your expertise & knowledge of the downtown Omaha real estate market. I was impressed when you raised the parking stall issue at closing; I would never have thought about it. We would definitely use you again as our agent. Also…thank you very much for the gift certificate; we have not used it yet but we will within the next few weeks to celebrate our anniversary at a less hectic time!

Diane has worked with me as both a buyer’s and a seller’ s agent and is equally poised in both regards. She has an incredible knowledge of Omaha real estate and will no doubt meet your needs no matter your requirements. What really stands out is the attention she gives each client and her willingness to go above and beyond. While selling a home long distance Diane tracked down contractors for work needed and got me incredible rates due to her connections with a variety of professionals in the area. The time involved filling out paperwork has always been streamlined as well due to her thorough preparation (can even be completed online with a few clicks, a big deal when tied up or out of town). Go with Diane and you’ll have an attentive, hard working agent that gets you the best deal and all said and done you’ll be amazed how easy the process can be with the right people on your side
Diane was so great to work with. I was a first-time home buyer and she walked me through the entire process. She was extremely patient while I searched for my house and she answered all of my questions and concerns with professionalism and a great deal of knowledge. Diane made the journey of buying my house fun and stress-free! I highly, highly recommend her– 5 Stars
Diane was fantastic and helped me through 2 real estate situations in the span of just a few months, both selling and purchasing. She was the most responsive real estate professional I’ve dealt with, helped guide me in negotiations, and was very knowledgeable about the processes, documentation, and reasonable expectations regarding multiple aspects of the process. A+, highly recommended!
You know how it is when you find that passionate person you know is doing what they are meant to do? That’s Diane Speck. I’m so fortunate to have someone who was completely knowledgeable in the areas I cared about, and who maintained a high degree of professionalism, while always remembering it’s personal (it’s a home, after all!) and inspiring my dreams. Whether she was showing me spaces, helping me plan, advocating for me or closing the deal, Diane exceeded every expectation. Diane made happen what I could only imagine.
Diane is easily the best Realtor we have ever worked with. She is knowledgeable, professional, accessible, thorough, and tenacious. Diane was right with us every step of the way through a challenging transaction. She worked harder than we ever expected to ensure our happiness and get us the best possible deal. We were grateful to have her by our side.

As a FSBO, Diane was very willing to work with me to finalize the details with her client. Not a single thing was left to the last day except for signatures. Diane was great to work with and kept us moving along each week.
Diane helped me find this place to rent a few years ago. Recently the owners wanted to sell and I wanted to buy this unit. Diane worked with us with a for sale by owner situation. The challenge came when one of the owners was out of country the other owner was in another state and of course I was here in Nebraska. Diane handled everything flawlessly! We were able to close on time despite some bumps in the road. All the way through Diane was on top of everything and handled everything perfectly! Would highly recommend her!
Diane went above and beyond in helping us find a house. We had to do alot of long distance house hunting, and she was very willing to preview properties for us. I highly recommend her.
Vince and Kathy S
Diane was amazing! After spending hours looking at apartments and being unimpressed I walked into Diane’s office with no appointment and within minutes had arranged for a viewing of a apartment later that day! The apartment was amazing, under budget and wasn’t on any listing that I had seen. Diane had a great relationship with the building manager and was over all a very sweet person!
Alex and Chad
We hired Diane to represent us as the buyer in a condo transaction. She was reliable and responsive to all our questions. She knows the downtown area really well. We had very little experience and she prevented us from making some really stupid mistakes by pointing out other options to us. Yet we always felt like we had the last say. She is a dynamo of energy yet sometimes I had to remind myself that she had other clients because she seemed to do so much for us. We would hire her again in a minute!
After scouting several Omaha neighborhoods, I was fortunate to find Diane, who had intimate knowledge of the three that interested me most. She provided me with a list of potential condos in several price ranges, which helped me gain a more realistic appreciation of local housing costs. She got me prompt access to a multitude of units in several condo complexes. After finding one I liked, Diane became an enthusiastic supporter while I got my previous home ready to sell, and was a positive advocate during negotiations for my current home. I am thrilled to be where I am now.
We highly recommend Diane as a Realtor. She is completely professional in her dealings. Very knowledgeable about the Omaha area – especially the downtown/Old Market area. She enthusiastically showed us properties and was extremely timely in her communications and follow-up. The entire process was seamless. Thanks, Diane!
Paul & Gretchen S
Hands down the best professional that I have had the opportunity to work with. Understanding and caring. Actually takes the time to find out what exactly you are looking for and makes recommendations based off of that.
Diane Speck was a great Realtor to work with. She looks out for her clients and their interests at all times. She is patient, as my wife and I changed what we were looking for constantly. Never once did she pressure us into making an offer just so she could get a sell. She listens to what you are saying and asking for. She can find solutions to concerns you have. Diane was awesome to work with, and I strongly suggest anyone thinking of using her as an agent to make the decision to go with her. We love the house that we got.
Zack and Anna D
Diane helped us to buy a condo in the Old Market. During the process, she was always quick to respond to a call or text. She patiently showed us a rather diverse variety, as we were new to the area and not exactly sure what all our options were. Diane is extremely friendly and detail-oriented, and she works hard to get the deal done.
Deanna and John F
My wife and I worked with Diane to first rent a house in Omaha and then to buy a house in Omaha 7 months later. Diane is great to work with. She is very familiar with Omaha and its various neighborhoods. She did a fantastic job for us, looking after our best interests and offering great advice and insight. Ali and I will certainly work with Diane again if we purchase a house in the future.
Wyatte & Ali S.
I was looking to buy a condo in the Omaha Old Market as a second residence, therefore, much of our communication was long distance. Diane was always quick to respond and seemed to always be available. In addition, if she noted that I was not getting timely responses from others she would step in on my behalf. She works very hard to make sure her clients get exactly what they need and want. Her persistence and tenacity served me very well. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable about the Old Market properties available, she proved to be quite the decorator as well. Again, as I was not in town, she stepped in and helped make some of those decisions the builders needed ie) tile, grout colors, carpet etc. Needless to say she is more than willing to go above and beyond the call of duty for her clients. I would recommend Diane for anybody looking for a buyers agent (and everyone should have one) as she is extremely good at what she does. It was truly a pleasure working with her and I feel I made a friend in the process!
I have lived in the Old Market for several years and wanted get out of the Old Market Lofts. Diane helped me find a much BETTER Space – Diane listened and directed me to a FANTASTIC place – Best Location- Suits my needs and wants… She was extremely knowledgeable and made my apartment hunting a very smooth and easy process. She communicates in a very timely manner- I would definitely recommend Diane Speck if you are looking to rent or purchase in the Downtown Omaha area. My Wheaten Terrier & I are very happy at the new place.
Diane is the hardest working Realtor I have ever worked with and always responsive to any question or need. I lived outside the state and needed to sell my downtown Omaha condo which required the staging and marketing to be handled long distance. Diane took care of everything including posting beautiful photos of the condo on the website, holding numerous open houses and networking with the downtown community. When a prospective buyer was found she successfully negotiated the purchase in, what was at the time, a very competitive buyers’ market and handled the deal without much involvement from me. I would definitely recommend Diane because of her strong work ethic, her networking skills and her desire to do whatever it takes for her clients. And she is fun to work with too!
Amanda and I moved in to our new place at Cornerstone today. There is lots still to do, but I wanted to share with you that we really like the place and are glad we chose it with you. It has been great throughout the move in process.
Thanks again for helping us find the place Diane
Chris and Amanda D
I moved to Omaha from St. Louis on rather short notice. I was not going to be in Omaha before I moved, so I needed someone who knew what was available in the Old Market and what buildings would include the amenities I wanted. Diane was instrumental in setting up viewings for my parents so at least they could walk through the apartments and give me some feedback. Diane worked with my parents to set up a few walk-thru appointments. It only took one or two visits before Diane found exactly what I was looking for. I felt very comfortable signing my lease without actually seeing the apartment in person because of the input I received from Diane and my parents. I have been in the apartment for 6 months now and cannot image finding a better spot! Once I am ready to start looking to buy a house/condo in Omaha I will definitely be contacting Diane for her help again. Thank you Diane!
Diane Speck helped me rent my home recently. She is exceedingly detail-oriented, hard-working, eager, and above all responsive. I highly recommend her.
We moved to Omaha in September from New Jersey. Diane was very attentive and prompt on helping us lease a loft. She showed us 4 great properties! The Old Market has something for everyone!
Sandra and Russell P
Diane is awesome as an agent….follow up and attention to detail her great assets……and a sense of urgency totally focused on getting the answer……I recommend her more than 100 percent
I moved to Omaha two years ago with the idea I wanted to live in the Old Market area. Diane helped me find an apartment in the area so I could “try” out the neighborhood. When I decided the Old Market was the place for me, she again helped me find my perfect home. In my case, Diane knew the Old Market area so well that I trusted her advice about what would be the best location for me. I highly recommend Diane for any real estate need.
Diane made the search for the right place in Bellevue streamlined.
Direct communication and really knowing the areas so I did not pay over market value. I will be using Diane for my buyer’s agent for my next project in 2015
Diane’s Communication and quick response and flexible schedule allowed me to find exactly what I needed in a short turn around time- everything from finding the place to closing date in 34 days – THANK YOU DIANE
I was moving to Omaha from Portland and had 2 days to find the perfect place to move – I knew I wanted downtown – Old Market and not in an Apartment Building– Found and Awesome 2 bed 2 bath condo to lease – with all the bells and Whistles – Loving living in the Old Market- I have recommended Diane to co-workers from UNMC and others looking for a Buyer’s agent and looking to lease downtown.
We worked with Diane to find an amazing place to live in Downtown Omaha. She was awesome, took the time to listen to what we were looking for and did it all. She set up the appointments, went with us in case we had any questions and made the entire process so easy and fun. We found a place in a week and cannot wait to move in. She is the best!
In the summer of 2013, my wife and I came to the decision to seek a smaller home to more adequately meet our retirement living needs. Being familiar with the Sandi Downing Real Estate firm, we enlisted the services of Agent Diane Speck to represent us in the process.
Diane came to our rescue and made the process of selling our existing home and buying a new one a seamless experience. She was available to answer our numerous question and always in a timely fashion. She made sure the closing paperwork was in our hands in a timely fashion and thoroughly explained what was needed to finalize the closing.
The best recommendation anyone can have is from a satisfied customer. We were extremely satisfied with the entire transaction and would highly recommend Diane to any and all who are in need of Real Estate expertise.

Making the move from our acreage in Iowa to condo living was easy. Our Realtor, and friend, Diane Speck, was familiar with jLofts as she had lived in the building several years before introducing us to the property. With Diane, we searched a dozen condo properties in the downtown area before deciding on jLofts. Compared to other properties, jLofts wins on all fronts. Location: We are within walking distance to the CenturyLink Center, Orpheum, and TD Ameritrade park. One of the few condos “in the Old Market”, it’s literally a 90 second walk to the grocery store with restaurants and boutique shopping just around the corner. We are super close to the biking trail system in Iowa via the pedestrian bridge. The jLofts building and amenities are superb: New construction building, upscale, contemporary style condos each with private balcony, ample heated and secured underground parking, fitness gym, concierge service, trash and recycling services. All our neighbors are so nice, and we have regular social gatherings. Snow storms and thunderstorms don’t bother us anymore because we don’t have the yard or roof to fret over anymore! We save money on gas and have more time to enjoy our hobbies instead of working in the yard or driving to and from shopping and events…we have our lives back. We love our condo!
Current jLofts residents Sheryl and Steve L
I moved to Omaha from Rhode Island on short notice. I had never been to Nebraska, let alone Omaha before moving. There are many living options in Omaha and being that I was not from the area I didn’t know where to look. Diane was instrumental in assessing my needs and pointing me in the correct direction. She then made sure that the place would be available for me when I needed it. She found me a place that has everything I need, nothing I don’t, and within my price range.
