Dianne Merryl, a native Angeleno, was raised in the San Fernando Valley and has made it her home ever since. It’s no wonder that she knows the area like the back of her hand.
She ranks among the top 3% of Berkshire Hathaway agents nationwide, and is a long standing member of their luxury properties division.
Dianne credits her 37 years of continued success to a true love of real estate and the tremendous unparalleled service and attention given to her clients. “I am so fortunate to have found a rewarding career where I am of service in finding the perfect home for my buyers, or assisting my sellers in moving on to their next space. That’s why I truly live by my motto, love where you live!”
She was honored to be one of the first agents to be featured on the cover of Broker-Agent Magazine, as well as being featured in the Los Angeles Daily News and Los Angeles Magazine. She was also consecutively voted favorite realtor on Next Door.
She formed and has served as the leader of the Elite Meet, a prestigious networking group of carefully selected top agents in the San Fernando Valley.
Committed to giving back, Dianne was given the coveted Los Business Journal Community Service Award for her active participation in The Charitable Foundation, where she served as the chairman for over 15 years.
“We utilized Dianne’s services as our listing agent in the sale of a property last year. After interviewing several different agents, we chose Dianne because of her knowledge of the area, professionalism and dedication to her profession. She not only sold our property in a timely manner, and for a fair price, but she also assisted us through each and every step of the process – from reviewing the offers down to cleaning out the house upon the sale. We were very happy with the level of service provided by Dianne. Her professionalism and assistance truly made the entire process as easy as possible.”

“Dianne spent over a year with us helping to locate our new home. We were moving from the Brentwood area. We have now been here for 20 years! She is a delight and knows her business. She also helps us locate renters for our other properties, and is a great resource. Dianne is the best!”
— NOREEN & IAN D.
“I have worked with Dianne both as a buyer and a seller, and I can honestly say there is no one I would rather have involved in my real estate transactions. She treats the process as if she was buying or selling the house for herself, advising on what is the right price, approach and actions needed. Even after your business is done, she is always there for you to reach out to. I called her recently about a house I was considering buying in another city, and felt so much better after talking to her and hearing her thoughts. That’s on a house she wasn’t even getting commission on! I highly recommend Dianne for all your real estate needs.”
— ELISA T.
“We have known Dianne Merryl or many years and she is our Realtor of Choice. We sold our home with Dianne as our Realtor in September of 2017. She was extremely professional and highly knowledgeable in all aspects of her professional industry. She knows Real Estate like the back of her hand. If you are looking to either purchase or sell property, Dianne Merryl is your go to Real Estate agent.”
— MICHELE K.
“Not only was Dianne devoted to finding us the right house and completely responsive to our inquiries, she got us the best deal, too. She never wasted our time; she sent us only to houses we liked and could afford; she’s an excellent negotiator; she referred us to all the best inspection and loan professionals. Also, she gave us the kind of frank and insightful advice you would expect if your agent were a close family member. She’s the best.”
— JONATHAN & STACEY S.
“Dianne is the absolute best I’ve ever worked with! The best, the best, the best, the BEST! She is absolutely one of the most knowledgeable people I know, her expertise is outstanding, she is quick to respond each time I have contacted her and her negotiation skills are unmatched.”
— ROSE R.
“Dianne has helped me find my first condo and likely the last home I will ever buy, both of which look like they were built just for me. Her expertise and ability to hone in on the exact wants and needs of the buyer is unparalleled. It is as though she has a sixth sense when it comes to homeownership. She was incredibly knowledgeable throughout and because of all of her years of experience, knew the brokers involved in both transactions which helped tremendously. She made the experience as easy and pleasant as possible and knew how to navigate the littlest to the biggest blips in the road. I highly, highly, highly recommend her. ”
— LISA W, ESQ
“We adore Dianne! She sold us our house 9 years ago. I was 6 months pregnant, and school district and family neighborhood were my top priority! It was also our first house, so a huge learning curve for us to navigate the process, but she made it very easy. Dianne showed us a ton of homes (she was very patient!), and when our house came on the market we were the first ones in there to see it and bid immediately. Our offer was accepted right away and the closing went so smoothly. We never would have seen the house if she hadn’t gotten wind of it first! She went above and beyond to help us every step of the way, even giving us names of various people to help fix up the place before we moved in, advice on paint colors, etc. We still love our house years later! We highly recommend her!”
— CHRISTY K. & PAUL G.
“Dianne is truly a gem. She is incredibly knowledgeable about real estate and she put my husband and I at ease when looking for our first home. We valued her support and honesty throughout our search for a home. She is just a wonderful person. We’re so grateful to have worked with her.”
— HILLARY & MATT F.
“Dianne is the best out there. She helps with every part of the selling process: From collecting comps to choosing a paint color (to update the house) to staging ideas. When it came to purchasing, she was more discerning than we were. We looked for more than a year. When we had some interest in a home that she believed to have a significant drawback, she was quick to tell us to keep looking. It’s unusual to find a realtor who actually talks you out of purchasing. What makes Dianne unique is that she was deeply committed to making sure we found the right house. She is super tapped into the area and knows everything that’s out there (and not yet out there). She got us into a house that wasn’t yet listed. We walked in and we were a bit ambivalent. She told us, You need to buy this house. In ten years you will think this is the best decision you ever made. If I was looking to buy a house, this is what I’d buy. We listened. And, she could not have been more right. No idea what was scaring us on the home we purchased. But, it’s our forever house and everything about it is perfect for us. She was helpful with the loan process, supportive during inspections and a bulldog in getting us the best deal possible. Years later, we are still friends. She’s a terrific realtor and a good human.”
— NICKI K. & GARY R.
“Dianne Merryl represented us in our quest to purchase a home. We looked at condos, townhomes and single-family residences. We put offers in on multiple properties before we finally found the home of our dreams in Tarzana. Dianne is an exceptional realtor who understood our needs and provided us with a critical eye to the strengths and weaknesses of each property. In the end, she was able to get the seller of our beautiful new home to reduce the price by $35,000 AFTER the seller had agreed to our full price offer! She is very experienced and if we ever want to purchase more real estate we will be using Dianne Merryl. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home. We give her an A+ for knowledge, effort and negotiating skills. She earned every bit of it!”
— STEVE S. & JAN W.
“Dianne sold us our first home 16 years ago. She was thoughtful, thorough and knowledgeable, and wanted to ensure we found the perfect home for our new budding family. She guided us on so many aspects from the offer stage, to closing Escrow, to helping us get settled in the neighborhood. We have been so happy we never left!”
— MELANIE & JIM J.
“I had never bought a house before. Dianne not only found the perfect house for me but she made sure that all inspections were thorough and found many items that needed fixing. She then negotiated with the seller to bring down the price to cover all repairs. She walked me through every part of the process which was all very daunting to me being a first time buyer. She was always available for questions even after the sale of the house. I have already recommended Dianne to others and will continue to do so in the future. She was just a wonderfully skilled and masterful realtor. And a pleasure to work with. ”
