I have been in the real estate industry since 2009. I pride myself on working as an advocate with each of my clients, encouraging and empowering them, as well as educating them during every step in the process. My goal is always to achieve the maximum potential in each transaction. I have experience and negotiation skills to successfully close even the most complicated transaction. My previous experience managing and selling in the auto industry has provided valuable skills that translate very well into real estate. There is no better feeling than handing the keys off to a buyer or helping a seller as they move on to their next chapter.
As a local resident for more than 20 years, I have extensive and intuitive knowledge of the Seattle and Eastside markets. I specialize in selling and buying single-family homes and condos in Bellevue, Kirkland, Bothell, Seattle and the surrounding areas. I have chosen to partner with John L. Scott because I feel the company, as I do value a strong reputation as an industry leader and a commitment to the use of innovative marketing tools that get results.
I am involved in several local organizations including the Daughters of the British Empire, a group that was started many years ago and raises funds for local charities, and the Kirkland Woman’s Club. I am also on the Board of Directors of the Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the Bellevue Downtown Association. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter (who is a law student at Seattle University), boating, reading, golf, and Mahjong.

Diana was born in Pittsburg, PA, but was raised in Spokane, WA. She moved to western Washington after she and Chris met in Kona, HI. She holds an A.A. in Early Childhood Education from Spokane Falls Community College. She has been an assistant manager for two different Windermere offices and she and Chris have just recently assumed ownership of the Windermere Mill Creek office.
Together they have three children, and four grandchildren. They enjoy sailing (and in a previous life, spent much time on the water racing sailboats). They also enjoy golfing, hiking, traveling, wine tasting, friends and family.
Chris and Diana are big proponents of community involvement and encourage their brokers to be leaders in their communities. They believe their brokers have the ability to create positive social change and are in a unique position to make a difference.
