Diane Oakes

Broker Associate/Realtor


I  have  lived in St. Petersburg for over forty years and am very familiar with the over 100 neighborhoods throughout the city, especially the waterfront communities and the nearby revitalized and charming downtown district.  I am a graduate of the University of South Florida, a former High School teacher, local business owner and artist but for the last 18 years have enjoyed the many challenges of Real Estate.  I cover Pinellas County, mainly St Petersburg, Tierra Verde, St Pete Beach, Madeira Beach, Treasure Island, Redington, Belleair, Clearwater and Seminole.

I enjoy working with both buyers and sellers and consider it a privilege to find the perfect home for buyers and be at the closing table with satisfied sellers.  I am always available and will do whatever it takes to accomplish the goal of a happy ending for an eager buyer or anxious seller and making the process as smooth as possible. 

If you are a buyer, I can help you find a lender, and I can connect you with listings that match your criteria and once you have found a home you like, I can guide you through the process, including home inspections, appraisal, repairs, insurance, and closing.

If you are a seller, I can help with pricing your home properly and preparing your home to put in it's best light with professional pictures. Then comes the negotiations with buyer and then the buyer inspections and possible repair requests, and finally the best part--the closing.  I have many happy clients who have become friends and hope to make you one,too.

I look forward to hearing from you whether a buyer or seller.  I know many of you are very busy and just don't have time to call or email.  So if you prefer to text your requests, that's fine too.  Hope to hear from you soon!

"Diane Oakes is without a doubt one of the most professional Real Estate individuals I have ever met. Her service information knowledge and experience allowed me to a wonderful purchase. I would recommend her to anyone."

"Diane has been my real estate agent for the past five years. She has helped me sell two condos, buy one condo and rent another in the interim. Diane worries about me as a person not just as a client. I have been having a difficult time making up my mind recently as I make a very important decision about where to finally retire. Diane has been very understanding and always right there to help me learn the best facts. You can't do better than to get Diane for an agent. She really knows the local real estate market and the general community. Working with Diane is really a joy."
