Real estate is in her blood. While growing up in Ohio, her parents built and sold several custom homes.

Since then, I have bought, sold, built and renovated homes and have thoroughly enjoyed the process." Diana spends her free time at a dance or yoga class, bicycling, reading and walking her dog, Romeo, at the beach, gardening and pursuing her passion for photography. Her past philanthropic endeavors include developing and coordinating educational forums and fund raising for organizations who assist children with special needs and volunteering with environmental organizations.
