A resourceful, connected net-worker, Diana Ventura specializes in helping clients find what they need in a property. Anything from childcare to architects, from school applications to theater tickets, from the perfect dining table to the perfect home. From the first showing to the anticipated closing, Diana is committed to bringing the best possible experiences to her clients when helping them sell or buy their homes.

A die-hard New Yorker for more than 30 years, Conversational in four foreign languages (Spanish, Italian, Hebrew and some French), Diana has also developed from her travels the ability to be a particularly sensitive listener. Diana has had stints in advertising and stand-up comedy, and traveled extensively before settling in to a career in theatrical production. She holds a journalism degree from NYU.

Diana has found that one of the best parts of traveling is having New York to come home to. Her roots are firmly planted on the Upper West Side, where she currently lives with her two sons.

“Diana is just simply a solid, excellent broker who really knows the business. She helped me sell an apartment that was difficult to sell and got us top dollar! She dealt wonderfully with the tenant in place and really knew how to push things forward - aggressively but tactfully. She is super at keeping the client posted as to the status at every stage of the game…She is market savvy at negotiating a good sales price… I am happy to sing her praises!- Richard K.
"We had the pleasure of working with Diana on the sale of two apartments. The first was a small two bedroom on the Upper East Side. Diana was diligent, detail-oriented and knew the market. She worked tirelessly to make sure the apartment sold quickly and at a great price. When we decided to relocate out of New York we couldn¹t think of asking anyone else to represent us for the sale of our larger apartment. Again, she went above and beyond - we couldn’t have been happier and we would highly recommend her.” – Karen R.
"Diana performed wonderfully for us on our West Side condo sale. She was meticulous in handling all of the many details surrounding a real estate offering. She kept us informed on the results of showings and was very helpful to all of the other agents who showed our apartment. A true professional." – Dennis and Gail M.
“Diana Ventura is the ideal real estate agent. She is knowledgeable, cheerful and very responsive. Diana stuck with us through what seemed like an endless search, listening to and understanding our needs and desires, patiently educating us all the way and getting us a great deal at the end. She was a one-woman rapid response team for our every request for information, data and analysis. What more could you want?” – Helen S.
“Buying New York real estate is a daunting process. Diana plotted the course of this journey for me with incredible grace and ease. From the get go, Diana listened and never made me feel that any question was insignificant. She coordinated a great team with such aplomb, always checking and rechecking that the numbers were correct and that answers were back to us on time. She is smart, warm, patient, and has a terrific disposition. I never could have done this without Diana.” – Karen L.
