Deirdre was born and raised in Yaphank, New York, and moved south to the idyllic village of Wesley Chapel with her family in 2005. Prior to joining Corcoran HM Properties, Deirdre was a top producer with a local real estate firm. 

For over 30 years, Deirdre and her mom owned an interior decorating company, Stylish Homes, and created draperies and other home decor. After moving to the Carolinas, they focused on styling/staging for photography sets for companies like EJ Victor, Henredon and others and created pieces for Ralph Lauren Furniture, Lauren Home, etc. They were on set stylists and upholstery regulators to make everything perfect for the photos that were used for their client’s marketing. Deirdre’s experience in this industry has benefitted her real estate clients as she helps them prepare their homes to go on the market and also provides advice to her buyers.

testimonials

My wife and I met Deirdre at an open house in 2018 and right away found her to be very professional and proactive. We were in the process of downsizing which added an extra layer of complexity. However, her knowledge, patience and sound advice was a calming influence throughout the process. Deirdre is without question the best Realtor we have ever worked with. She represented us in the selling of our Charlotte home (of 21 years) and, more importantly, finding the right downsized home. She was tireless throughout the process (weekends, vacation) and we have already recommended her to all our friends.

Glenn E

Deirdre is a blessing. She was so helpful in working with us and finding a home for our daughter. She was helpful, and so pleasant, and always answered when I needed to get in touch. We have purchased eight home in Charlotte and she is the best Realtor we have worked with. If we decide to sell our home, we would not consider listing with anyone else but Deirdre! She is simply the very best.!

Jacqueline S

Deirdre was a pleasure to work with! She is extremely knowledgeable about the local area as well as the home buying process here in North Carolina. She was always willing to go to bat for me and made sure I saw all aspects and perspectives on an issue, but also followed my direction when I wanted to handle something on my own or in a particular way. I was grateful to have Deirdre as a sounding board and to have her in my court during the buying process. Thanks for everything!

Stacey M

If you want a first class real estate experience, then look no further than working with Deirdre. Deirdre worked tirelessly for us! We were a unique client, as we were buyers from out of state on another coast. We never once felt less important than a client in her neighborhood. Deirdre's expertise in the region was a wonderful guiding light through the process and it always felt like she had the interest and long term goals of our family's forever home in the forefront. Her resources in the industry were always available to her (a sign of a consummate professional) to  help evaluate properties with us and she continued to deliver results day after day. Whenever we thought we had an action to take care of, she was always a step ahead and either took the lead or prepared enough information for us to make quick decisions. Deirdre truly is a gem of an agent!

Alex & Lori M

I am extremely grateful that I had Deirdre Olson to assist my family in the recent purchase of our new home! When an unexpected job promotion for my husband required our family to move from Virginia to the Charlotte area in less than 60 days, we knew we needed an extremely talented Realtor. We had to find a home that was new construction, at least four bedrooms, near a specific Montessori school AND ready to move in. We expected our search to be overwhelmingly stressful, but it was so much easier than we had thought. Because of Deirdre paying special attention to our wish list, we were able to select and go under contract on our house during just one weekend trip to Charlotte. She was also kind enough to take care of any business in Charlotte (ie: home inspections, fencing estimates, etc.) while we were still in Virginia. She was always in communication with the builder's agent and would keep us updated on any information that we needed. 

Shonda M

I was promoted and had less than 40 days to find a home in another state, move my family, and start working at the same time. My 5 year old son also had another 2 weeks of school before his school break began. All this set for a very rushed and stressful situation. My wife and I didn't know if we could pull it off and accomplish a successful transition given the aggressive timeline. Our Godsend came in the form of Deirdre Olson. She literally took control by first undertanding my family's needs, created a connection with us to gain our trust, and then she went to work for us in a way that I have never seen from any real estate agent in my experience conducting home purchases (this is my third home purchase). Deirdre met with inspectors, the builder, contractors, and the HOA when I wasn't available, and kept daily communication with my wife and I on the current status and recommended steps we needed to take. The care and concern that Deirdre displayed for us was exceptionally done.

Willie M

My experience with Deirdre was excellent. Very professional and listened to my needs. We highly recommend her for your real estate needs. You will not be disappointed!

Melody S

Deirdre Olson went above and beyond to help us with  the purchase of our home. She was on top of everything. Any questions we had were answered. She also anticipated many of our questions and concerns and she would literally text us information before we even asked for it. I would recommend Deirdre to anyone.

Samir L

Deirdre was amazing to work with. We had tried, unsuccessfully, to list our home with another agent, but Deirdre was able to get us under contract within 30 days. The entire process from start to finish was easy thanks to Deirdre. Her marketing skills are second to none and we were extremely pleased with the end result. Thank YOU, Deirdre!

Paul B

Deirdre was a joy to work with in selling our home of 21 years. Her professionalism and knowledge, as well as positivity throughout the whole sales proccess made the sale go very smoothly. Deirdre's attention to detail in our listing write up and photographs resulted in heavy first weekend traffic and a quick and impressive offer. We highly recommend her, have signed a buyers agency contract with her, and know she will be as diligent about helping us find the perfect downsize for us. We look forward to our continued agent relationship.

Robin & Glenn E

Deirdre was amazing in doing her job. She is passionate and very friendly and professional which made me feel more relaxed and at ease during this journey. My husband and I would and will recommend her to anyone we know. Anytime I had concerns or any issues, I would give her a call, shoot a text or even an email. Deirdre would answer and, if not able, she would let me know when she was able so I don't wait. We are so thankful Deirdre was our Realtor and, hopefully in the future, we will work with her again. We highly recommend Deirdre and thank her for an awesome job done!

Mina & Elvis V

Deirdre was terrific in all phases of my purchase. It's been a while since I'd purchased a home and my most recent one had largely been handled by my ex-wife. So, Deirdre may have had to do a bit more hand-holding guiding me through the process, but she did exceedingly well. When/if I ever sell this one, I will certainly contact her about the possibility of handling the sale. 

Mark A

Overall, it was a great experience working with Deirdre Olson. Since we were moving to the area, she was very patient as we defined and redefined the type of house, location, and price we were looking for. She was very instrumental with dealing with our mortgage lender and getting them unstuck to get the loan approved. She provided great referrals for a local attorney, surveyors, and home inspectors. It was a delight to work with her and we would definitely look to her again for any future moves. 

Jeffrey A

Deirdre is extremely professional and gets the details right. Lots of moving parts to our deal and everything went very smoothly. Delightful, professional and hard working is how I would best describe Deirdre. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in the buying or selling phase of their home.

Andrew J

Deirdre is the best agent I have ever worked with. She was well groomed, pleasant to work with, not pushy, she knew the listing we had chosen. She explained every detail about the home and it was a listing with another company. If we decide to buy another home, Deirdre will certainly be our agent. 

Kenneth S & Melody S

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Deirdre. All the critical and success factors, such as being detail-oriented, organized, and smart, were consistently evident with her work. Also important? A great sense of humor!

Colleen M

Deirdre did an excellent job selling our home and answered all of our questions. Our home sold fast! Thank you!

Cindy & Jim W

Deirdre was always very diligent in responding to any questions that I may have, and she was always prepared to discuss the details about the various units we visited. Even during latehours or on the weekends, she would answer my questions almost immediately. Even after I purchased my home, she quickly worked to answer my questions and give me guidance. I am a first time home buyer, and she significantly increased my comfort level in the process. She also clearly has a significant amount of experience. She knew the area and the market very well, and she was always able to identify factors that I needed to consider for each potential home. I found her to be extremely easy to work with and I would recommend her to anyone. 

Jonathan T

Deidre did a wonderful job helping us sell our home. She is friendly and highly responsive and is quick to answer any text messages, emails, or phone calls from her clients. She is knowledgeable on all aspects of the market and it is clear that she is passionate about helping families sell their homes and find their dream home. I would highly recommend Deirdre to friends and family as it has been a pleasure working with her.
