After a long, successful career in radio and television advertising sales in New York City; followed by over ten years in interior design, Diane turned her energies toward the world of real estate.
Throughout her years in sales, Diane learned that servicing her clients to an exceptional level that included compelling sales strategies in a competitive marketplace moved her to outstanding achievements.
As Senior Vice President of advertising sales for the A&E Television Networks, Diane oversaw five regional sales teams across the country as well as an integrated marketing team, an online sales team, and the print sales staff for Biography Magazine. As leader of these teams, Diane had a track record of driving revenue and business growth by negotiating and closing countless multi-million-dollar transactions.
After leaving her senior management position in New York City, Diane turned her attention to her other passion, which is interior design. She attended Fairfield University and studied both residential and commercial design, resulting in Allied ASID recognition. This led to starting her own business, where timeless and elegant spaces were crafted and executed.
Diane’s love of houses, her sense of style, her attention to detail, and her impeccable business acumen all led to Diane’s next step to becoming a realtor. Merging these two areas of strong business experience and aesthetic sensibilities allows Diane to help her clients see the potential in every space while also guiding them seamlessly through one of the most important times of their lives. She helps buyers see possibilities in a property and sellers to obtain maximum results from their sale.
Diane was drawn to the Halstead brand because as a company, Halstead embodies the values that Diane has come to respect and rely on from an employer. Their forward-thinking approach and modernistic look into the future coupled with strong ethics make them a perfect match for Diane’s own pragmatic business demeanor. She was impressed with their arsenal of stellar marketing tools available for positioning properties powerfully and effectively.
Diane prides herself on her refined listening skills and enjoys meeting people and understanding their needs. Matching the right home to the right buyer is what it’s all about. Honest and reliable, she has been praised for her professionalism, her dedication to excellence, and her steadfast devotion to her clients.
Diane moved to Connecticut in 1998 after living in New York City for several years. Being the mom of a teenager, she has been immersed in the school districts for years and is well-versed in how the towns run. In her free time, Diane likes to cook, dance, travel, entertain, and all things involving dogs.
Diane’s passion for life permeates everything that she does and everything that she undertakes.
Her business philosophy is the same as her philosophy on life: Work hard, never give up, and do what you love!
