Jeff and Tammie did an outstanding job assisting our family with a recent purchase.

They are knowledgable about the industry and the region and demonstrate utmost integrity and professionalism throughout. We did not feel pressured to make hasty or imprudent decisions and Jeff, who was the lead agent on our side, invested great care to learn what was important for us and provide advice and guidance that took these preferences into account. We look forward to continued reliance on Jeff and Tammie as wonderful local resources. I tend to be highly judicious in issuing public posts and generally do so only when the experiences are at either of the two extremes - here, we would not hesitate to recommend or use Jeff/Tammie again.

Cynthia Janee Burns

I can't say enough great things about working with Tammy Dillashaw.

We worked briefly with Tammy in 2015 when we had to move from our rental. The owners were selling their property. Due to time constraints we ended up in another rental. When it came time to house hunt again, we didn't hesitate to call Tammy. We knew she was the person who would help us find our forever home. Tammy was sooooooo easy to work with and accommodated our off work schedules to show us homes. She worked tirelessly to find us a home and we looked at a lot of homes!!!! If the house wasn't "the one", Tammy reassured us that our house was out there.........and she was right. We recently purchased the house of our dreams and we couldn't have done it without Tammy. Tammy was with us every step of the way as we went through the buying process. I would highly recommend Tammy (I refer to her as the best realtor in Calveras County). Throughout this process, I feel I not only found our dream home, but I made a personal connection and a friend.

Dianne G. (Office Assistant/Account Payable)

The Dillashaw - Rasmussen team represented our organization when we purchased property for a transitional housing project.

This was a first real estate transaction for our nonprofit organization and they were there for us every step of the way to answer our questions and guide us through the process. I would definitely recommend their services and use them again.

Jerry Cadotte (Executive Director, Sierra HOPE)

Samantha is an outstanding real estate agent and my husband and I are so grateful for all that she did for us.

Her expertise and determination resulted in a quick sale (at full asking price) and a timely closing, and her pleasant and polite demeanor made her a dream to work with. We can't praise Samantha or her talents enough - underneath that beautiful face is a tiger! NextHome is truly blessed to have her as one of their agents and we are blessed that she was ours.

Joel Young (Owner of Doc Artisan)

Diane Bateman was recommended to me from a friend.

I was interested in moving to the Angels Camp area, so I was looking for a real estate agent who knew the area. When I first met Diane, she was very friendly and sincere. I had already made a list of potential properties, her list matched mine. So we were already on the same page as far as what I was looking for. As we were looking at properties, we were discussing the positives and negatives of each property. I looked at a property and immediately was impressed. Diane assisted me every step of the way to help acquire the property. It was not an easy acquisition, but together we worked it out. I am a very happy property owner thanks to Diane and a few others who helped very much. I would strongly recommend Diane to anyone looking real estate in the area.

Howard Lager

My husband and I highly recommend Diane and her team.

We knew very little about the home selling process and Diane with her vast knowledge set our minds at ease. There were several bumps along the way but with Diane’s genuine kindness and understanding we got through this process with confidence. She truly had our backs during every aspect of this stressful time. She made us feel very comfortable knowing we could call her with any questions that came up. We highly recommend Diane to anyone looking for a top notch realtor. She exceeded our expectations, and we couldn’t be happier.

She listened to what we type of home we were hoping to buy and kept us updated with appropriate listings as the came on the market. She notified us of the home we purchased within minutes of the listing and worked around our schedule to show it that same day! Tammy was knowledgeable, available and responded quickly to all of our questions and concerns helping us through the escrow process. We are so happy to have worked with Tammy and highly recommend her.

It is with very great pleasure I write this recommendation for Samantha Jordan.

Before committing to work with Samantha, Cass and myself "test drove" many other realtors. We were continuously left overwhelmed and stressed. It wasn't until we were recommended Samantha that we found relief. All the confusion and pressure subsided upon the first visit. House hunting became a fun adventure instead of feeling like a chore and her talent/guidance helped us find the dream home we were looking for. Being first time home buyers it was hard to be taken seriously. Our lack of experience was mistaken for disinterest and left us discouraged. However, working with Samantha this was not the case. She made it a priority to work with us and build a relationship. Something that is essential for home buying. We really appreciated her patience and willingness to answer the hundreds of questions we threw her way, no matter what time of day it was. Samantha went above and beyond to find us what we wanted. Many (most) realtors seem fake and just want to get the sale done. This was not the case with Samantha. She was very honest and supportive, letting us know what would work and what wouldn't. She told us how it was and did not sugar coat the situation. This trait itself will have us coming back in the future. Ultimately, Samantha is very professional and knows the real estate business. She is not only an extraordinary real estate agent, but a trusted new friend. She will be upfront, honest, and work all hours of the day to find an answer for you. Cass and I would recommend her to any future home buyer as she excelled in every quality we were looking for. She made the process easy and enjoyable!

Colt & Cassidy (Engineer & Hairstylist)

I could not be happier with my choice of realtor!

I just bought my first house and Tammy was such a huge help, between helping us find the right home, to navigating the offer and subsequent negotiations, she made the whole process so easy. I highly recommend Tammy to anybody looking for friendly, professional service from an agent who really cares!

Julian Hayward

Tammy is knowledgeable, professional, and easy to get a hold of.

She helped us navigate a tricky real estate transaction, and we were very pleased with the result!

Phil Sheng (Attorney)

We have purchased six homes during our married life and Diane Bateman is by far the most knowledgeable and helpful of all.

She is also very compassionate and accommodating. She listens to what you want and doesn’t try to steer you away from that. She doesn’t just want to make a sale she wants you to be happy. We will recommend her again and again!

Earnie & Gloria Hust (Past Client)

Tammy was very professional, helpful and personable throughout the process of selling our home.

We were very satisfied with her realtor skills and service.

Anthony Reynoso

Samantha did a wonderful job helping us secure our new family property.

She was attentive and responsive to our wishes, very kind and friendly. With Samantha’s time, effort and sacrifice, we were able to close in a timely manner at a price that satisfied both parties. Thank you so much Samantha!

Christopher Mercurio

Diane really helped my wife and Me close the deal on our new house.

She is a very friendly and professional real estate agent. I can wholeheartedly recommend Diane for your real estate needs.

Arthur Gilmore (Release manager)

Samantha went above and beyond with my every wish for this investment real estate transaction.

She found the perfect property I had been searching for for months. She helped negotiate a great price and even helped negotiate great owner financing. SHE IS THE BEST. She worked hard to help me accomplish any goal I had and I never heard any compliant or frustration from her, even though due to other circumstances the escrow ended up being months long. I will never use another agent for anything else, ever again!

Daniel Blodgett (Commercial Real Estate Buyer)

Tammy did an excellent job of keeping me up to date on the status of my land purchase and helped me get critical details from the Seller on potential issues that could have killed the deal.

All done in a friendly, yet very professional manner. I highly recommend Tammy for your real estate needs.

Eric Ryder (Sr. Muckity-muck of Muckity-muckland)

Tammy is my go to real estate agent/broker.

Tammy is very knowledgeable about real estate. She is always accommodating in answering questions and concerns. She is very easy to contact. I have previously dealt with Tammy regarding real estate transactions and all have been successful as was this current one. Thank you Tammy.

Donna Foggiato

Professional, knowledgeable, competent, and caring for details describe Tammy Dillashaw and Jeff Rasmussen.

A pleasure to work with and full of wonderful answers to all your questions. But the most valuable detail is their honesty and follow through.

Susan Rombough (Seller)

Roberta is an asset!

This is not a coerced response but a truly earned and deserving one.

Kelvin Gamble (Past Client)

Looking for that great real estate agent that LOVES THERE JOB, returns calls in a adequate amount of time, an eye for detail , has wonderful communication skills and WILL GET THE JOB DONE!

Look know further DIANE BATEMAN is that person. I personally had the escrow from hell. She handled it with professionalism and stayed on top OF EVERYBODY and literally dragged it thru the system. (Not her job, title companies) I think the average agent would of folded. Its great to know your hard earned money is well spent. Rebecca Wilkins

Rebecca Wilkins

Jeff and Tammy are both outstanding realtors.

Both are very professional and completely understand the local real estate market. They will not only represent you but help you through the entire process. I highly recommend the Dillashaw - Rasmussen team for any real estate transactions or questions.

Tim Bottomley (Public Safety Officer)

I would highly recommend Diane.

She made me feel confident and secure buying and selling my home. She is a true fighter for her clients and I would not go with anyone else. She is truly amazing.


Tammy did a great job helping negotiate the purchase of our property.

She was very available and helped put us in contact with the right people. The sale was difficult considering multiple owners involved in the sale and we were grateful to have someone to help in negotiations.

John Farrier (Owner)

Roberta is a kind and thoughtful woman who truly listens and cares about her clients wishes and at the same time delivers sound and professional advice based on market conditions.

I have used Roberta in two transactions and look forward to our next endeavor. I would recommend Roberta for both listing and buying property as her years in the industry and attention to detail will give you a strong presence in your transaction.

Linda G Silveria

Roberta was an outstanding seller's agent for us!

We wanted to sell our home at a higher market value than most agents would have agreed too. She found and was able to substantiate our desire to do this by utilizing market timing and keeping a close eye on what the surrounding homes were going for. She had excellent ideas about making our house presentable and had the contacts for making this happen at reasonable rates. She was prompt and well informed on every situation involving the sale of our home. She is an excellent negotiator but realistic too. Overall a very competent real estate agent and I would go to her again with my housing needs in a heartbeat! We thank you Roberta for your dedication and hard work.

Terri Gladden (Seller)

Samantha was just great!

She took our interests to heart and worked very hard to find us a home. Once the home she found us was in escrow, she kept us informed and answered all of our questions as the process worked through. Can't recommend her enough!

James Bailey

Diane has closed 2 listings for me and has many years of experience in the mother lode I would highly recommend her for any real estate needs buying or selling in the future.

I will be happy to give her another listing soon as I get a house or property to sell in the area.


Diane represented my wife and I during our search for a new home in Calaveras County.

During the entire 6 month process she patiently looked for our ideal house. She put in offers and counter offers on three different properties. Finally we settled on a home that we are so happy with. Diane heard our requests, gave us her input but never pushed. We felt then and still do that she wanted us to be happy with our purchase more than she was about her commission. Bottom line! She represented us

Roy Blair (CPA-CFE)

Tammy recently represented us on a property sale and we could not be more pleased with her skill, expertise, kindness and honesty.

This coupled with her knowledge of the industry and area she represents made her a delight to work with in every way. Its a pleasure and honor to recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent with these qualities.

Dan & Mary Jo Rose (Property Owner)

Very professional service with attention to details.

Bill Airola DVM (Trustee of The Airola 2015 Revocable Trust)

WE have sold a number of homes over the last 50 years and Diane was the very best one we ever worked with.

We had a number of problems during this process and Diane worked through them and let us know about everything the whole time. She is a wonderful realtor to work with, we would recommend her anytime and think everyone should use Her as their realtor.


She is my mother so obviously I had to use her as my realtor.

That being said she I couldn’t be happier with her services. While we were looking for a place she didn’t bombard me with places that were either out of my budget or just not what I was looking for. And once we opened escrow she helped make the process very easy especially for a first time buyer.

Brandon Dillashaw

Diane was very professional and knowledgeable.

She knows the local Calaveras County market and went the extra mile to get us into the house that was our first choice. Her local knowledge was very helpful in finding competent and trustworthy inspectors. She was even able to hook us up with local students to help with our move in. I would highly recommend Diane to assist buyers or seller.

Daniel Martinez (Residential Buyer)

Tammy did an excellent job of marketing and selling my property.

She helped us purchase the house 12 years ago and was just as professional and helpful in selling our home last month. Would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Carolyn Brown

Diane is a warm,caring professional.

She handled the sale of our home in a very professional way. She is very thorough. We highly recommend Diane for any real estate meeds

Steven R Goff

Tammy has gone above and beyond in our search and eventual purchase of our home.

She has been consistently pleasant to work with and incredibly accessible and helpful. She was easily reachable via text, email, and phone and very knowledgable about all aspects of the home buying process. Buying a home from a state away can be nerve-wracking but Tammy put our worries at ease! Without a doubt, I would recommend Tammy to my friends and family.

Lauren H

Roberta fights for her clients she wants what is best for them!

John and Janet Bruckner (Past Client)

Roberta did an excellent job keeping us up to speed on all aspects of the home purchase.

She was always accessible when we needed advice or assistance with anything in regard to the purchase. She made a very challenging and complicated process much easier with her attention to details and through strong communication.

Bruce Kyse (Past Client)

The Dillashaw - Rasmussen team were reliable and attentive to my families needs.

They modeled integrity in their decisions and we felt they had the client's best interest at the forefront of every decision. Tammie and Jeff have a strong rapport within the community and amongst the locals. This trust has been built over the many years they have lived in the area and given back to the community. Tammie and Jeff have an impeccable knowledge of the real estate market and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone who has a real estate need.

Heather Barnett

Tammy is extremely pleasant to work with.

She stays on top of things and communicates very well throughout the process. I would like highly recommend Tammy and her Team.

Diane was very professional throughout the entire home buying process.

I appreciated her direct and empathic style. Diane is a consummate professional and always puts people at ease! I’m sitting in my new home, sipping coffee and enjoying my views of the vineyards!


Tammy did a great job in helping us find a beautiful home during this busy market.

As a first time buyer there were a lot of questions and Tammy and Heather had answers to anything I needed.

Jaime Gillies

Tammy did a fantastic job!

She was always able to meet at short notice and answer any questions I had. I felt I was in extremely good hands during the entire escrow. Very responsive to emails, I never felt she left me hanging! thanks so much!

Chris Abusaidi (Business owner)

Tammy made this the easiest real estate transaction I’ve ever done.

A while ago I called her with some questions and asked for her recommendation. Even though I wasn’t yet a customer, she helped me with my situation. Recently, when I decided to take action, she advised me of my options, led me step-by-step through the necessary paperwork, and handled all the communications with the other parties involved. Everything closed quickly and on time, and was simple and stress-free for me.

Shera Winter

Diane was referred to us by my Brother-in-Law who is a realtor but not familiar with the Angels Camp area and suggested we work with Diane.

Diane was quick to respond to our needs and provided great input. It took a little time to find the write one for us but now we are in the perfect house.

Mark Johnson

Diane Bateman did a wonderful job helping me find and purchase a lovely home in the Angels Oaks subdivision of Angels Camp, CA.

She is a very caring, responsible, dedicated real estate professional. The escrow process was a challenging one, in my case, but Diane went over and beyond in communicating with me and other real estate/finance professionals involved in the process. She was essential in helping me get through each step along the way. I will be happily recommending her and Next Home to friends and family in the future.
