Diane Peck is hands-down the best real estate professional I have ever encountered... Diane treated me with such kindness, professionalism, and attention to my needs that I was in disbelief throughout the incredibly quick process. With just a few hours notice, she set up more showings all over the city than I could have possibly attended, promptly got me into the best listings to check them out, and made sure that my application was the first one submitted when I found the perfect place. Diane is organized and adept at treating customers right.

Not only were my expectations surpassed – they were blown away... We couldn't have been happier with the service from Cooper & Cooper. Not only was Diane open and honest, but she managed to find us a place that was within our price range, preferred neighborhood and pet-friendly – all within 24 hours! I recommend Cooper & Cooper to anyone who is trying to find an apartment.

I was very lucky to come into contact with Cooper & Cooper. Diane was very professional, personable and responsive. I was from out of town and she made sure to call me everyday to update me on the situation. She worked very hard to do all the leg work and made sure there was good communication between us. I would definitely recommend them!

My boyfriend and I just finished working with Diane and what a great experience it was! It took a few weeks to find an apartment we loved, but the whole time Diane was patient, professional and always stayed within our budget... She was incredibly personable and it always felt like she was looking out for our best interests. I give Diane Peck and Cooper & Cooper two thumbs up!

I had a fantastic experience working with Cooper & Cooper. Our agent, Diane, provided excellent customer service that is really a breath of fresh air in the rental market. As I was operating on a very tight time frame, Diane met with us in just a matter of hours and had a whole slew of apartments ready to show us, with a very logical route mapped out. Could not recommend higher!

Diane Peck is fantastic. I moved from San Diego to Brooklyn about 6 weeks ago. I only had a week to find an apartment that takes dogs. Diane met with me after normal work hours and went above and beyond in the hot month of July. We scoured Brooklyn Heights, the Upper West Side, and Park Slope. She was relentless and never tired. She was so helpful... I can't say enough good things about Diane.

We, like many others, were moving from afar. We did a lot of research beforehand, but in the end decided we needed a broker. Glad we made the choice and that we chose Cooper & Cooper. Diane Peck is really down to earth, no-nonsense and has a wealth of knowledge. She is truly passionate about people and finding a good place for them. She's very perceptive and has an awesome sense of humor!

Diane was such a blessing during a stressful process. I didn't realize how quickly and how personalized my experience with her would be until I had keys in my hand only 5 days after I contacted Cooper & Cooper. Diane is super-efficient and is a wonderful listener... One thing that I really appreciated was that Diane did not rush me and she was honest about the different apartments we went to – her advice was objective... I would recommend Diane to anyone who needs a broker who gets stuff done.

Diane was extremely helpful and warm when my boyfriend and I were looking for a one bedroom apartment in the City... She showed us exactly what we asked for and gave us a tour of all the neighborhoods we visited. She was professional, warm, and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable in New York. Diane always had our interests first and frequently checked up with supers and building managers to make sure our appointments were on schedule. I would recommend anyone to Diane. She is a hard worker and really supports her clients.

Diane did a wonderful job of reassuring me and saved me a lot of stress by compiling a list of places that fit my budget and my preferences. I had a great time exploring the city with her and learning about the different areas and the trip could not have been more efficient and productive. Being a mother, she made sure to take into consideration safety and comfort when showing me apartments and I always felt she was very upfront and honest... Just as she promised, I signed a lease before my two day trip was over (amazing!). I've been living in my new apartment for about 4 months now and I couldn't be happier with the location and the living space. I've already recommended her to all my friends who are looking for places in the city.
