Get to Know Me

Diana is a seasoned real estate consultant at @properties and is affiliated with Refine Residential, a boutique team of top-producing brokers with over 145M in sales in 2021 alone. Involved in hundreds of transactions throughout Chicago's neighborhoods and across a range of housing types, from single-family homes and condos to multi-unit properties and co-ops, this team is ranked by the Chicago Association of REALTORS® as a top 1% producing team. She is also a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, Illinois Association of REALTORS®, and Chicago Association of REALTORS®. With over 10 years of sales, media, and advertising experience working for News, Lifestyle, and Home Design publications, Diana brings a wealth of strategic marketing expertise and extensive client service to her real estate practice. Formerly a successful Senior Account Executive in the digital media space, Diana is no stranger to knowing what it takes to engage an audience. Over 90% of buyers begin their home search online and Diana's digital background gives her clients an immense advantage in attracting those buyers at the onset of their house hunt. She is well-versed in the latest technology, social media platforms, and advertising opportunities to efficiently and effectively market properties for maximum exposure.


Known for her tireless work ethic, can-do attitude, and energetic personality, Diana is passionate about guiding buyers and sellers through every step of what can be a complex and often emotional process. As a recent homebuyer herself, she appreciates the magnitude of her clients' investment. Her goal is to make each buying or selling experience as seamless, successful, and enjoyable as possible. Priding herself on a career built upon honesty, frequent communication, and advocacy for her clients, Diana also has immense experience in navigating and negotiating complicated deals involving many parties, with her priority always being to keep her clients' best interests at the forefront of every transaction.


A graduate of Emory University in Atlanta, Diana has a degree in Business and Marketing and has called Chicago "home sweet home" for the past 14 years. She currently resides in the Roscoe Village neighborhood with her husband Matt, son Gavin, and daughter Harper, enjoying every ounce of what the Windy City has to offer in her spare time! When not working with buyers to discover that perfect home, or with sellers to showcase their property for the highest return, you can find her honing her "green thumb," trying new restaurants with friends, testing out the latest workout class, and whipping up some culinary creations in her kitchen.
