I learned to appreciate the importance of a place to call home by spending more nights in a hotel room than in my own bed. My former career in law took me all over the country for most of any given year. While getting on a plane every week was full of fun and adventure, I missed my own home.
Though I've taken the road less traveled to real estate, it’s one I needed to take to gain the skills necessary to become a well-rounded agent. During my law practice in litigation, I learned to think on my feet, solve problems when a solution was seemingly out of reach, the art of discretion, and the ability to masterfully negotiate. Each of these skills are crucial to getting the best result in any real estate transaction.
I was then recruited by a legal education company to travel to law schools around the country assisting in curricula development and the mentoring of law school graduates studying for the bar exam. Being an educator required extensive subject matter knowledge, patience, compassion, and around-the-clock support. It was extremely rewarding to guide a student through the bar exam—the most stressful and difficult exam of an attorney's professional career. And, it’s remarkably similar to the milestone of buying or selling a home—likely the largest financial transaction of one’s life.
I’m often asked why I stopped practicing law and working in education and, the truth is, I haven’t stopped either. Though I enjoyed both roles, real estate allows me to blend the skills required to practice law and teach into one fulfilling career in Los Angeles—instead of on a plane!
Each of my clients know that they will get a passionate, expert negotiator who will always fight for them, as well as a caring partner who will take the time to explain every step of the process. I would be honored to help you navigate the excitement, occasional stress, and ultimate success of buying or selling a home.
Bought a Condo home in 2016 for approximately $675K in Playa Del Rey, Playa Del Rey, CA.
Diana is absolutely THE BEST. I very highly recommend her to anyone starting the process of buying a home. Not only is she incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and professional, but she really listened to our ideas about what we wanted in a home (which changed often!) and was able to talk us through different ideas until we really figured out what we were looking for. She made the housing search process FUN, and the escrow process EASY! So many people we spoke with complained about how stressful buying a house is, but that was not at all our experience thanks to Diana. I love that we found a new home, but we will miss working with Diana!!
Bought a Condo home in 2016 for approximately $500K in Fox Hills, Culver City, CA.
I made an excellent choice when I asked Diana to help me buy a condo. She talked me through the entire process and helped me come to terms with what types of places I could get given my very specific budget and location constraints.
Diana is quick to respond and always available to answer questions. Working with Diana was like working with a friend. She was able to relate to my stress and anxiety while also keeping up my spirits when things didn't go my way.
She worked with me to find several places I liked and ultimately, we got an offer accepted.
Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $625K in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.
Diana is amazing! I can't say enough good things about her. She's very knowledgeable and knows exactly what she's doing. As we were looking at different houses, she was very honest about what she thought, which really helped us and made us feel comfortable. And once we found the home we wanted, she helped us figure out the best offer to give so we could get the house, and we did! During the stressful escrow process, Diana was there every step of the way answering our questions, letting us know what needed to be done, giving us updates. She made sure all parties involved, i.e. lender, seller, escrow, inspections...etc., stayed on top of things in a timely manner. We never had to worry that things weren't getting done. I HIGHLY recommend Diana!
Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Cheviot Hills, Los Angeles, CA.
Diana's work was absolutely spectacular during the home buying process. The best words to describe her would be: professional, attentive, and thorough.
I was most impressed with her quick negotiation skills, as well as her ability to tailor herself to best fit the client needs. I'm all about processes and checklists, and she adapted to my style so that I could best understand the issues from my perspective (i.e. an absolute home-buying novice!).
On top of all this, Diana is highly personable and she makes it an absolute pleasure to go through the home buying process. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase a home, though I'd imagine she's probably great at selling homes too!
Bought a Multi Family home in 2015 in Wilshire/Montana, Santa Monica, CA.
I feel really lucky to have Diana handling my first purchase in my life. She is responsible, easy to communicate and really well organized. With her background in law, she helped me going through documents page by page, and explained details to me patiently. I would highly recommend her to my friends to purchase a home in the future!
Helped me rent a home in Del Rey, Los Angeles, CA 90292.
Diana worked quickly to set up a full day of showings while I was in town. She negotiated better terms for me, e.g. price and move-in date. Diana also took the extra step to add language to the contract that protects me.
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in CA
Diana was incredible to work with!! I was both frustrated and confused at times and Diana always there to reassure me. Her expertise and knowledge was invaluable to me during the process. I can't say enough good things about her. I would highly recommend Diana to anyone looking for assistance.
