In 2006, Diane joined the team as a licensed REALTOR®.
Diane was already a well-known face around the office, starting as a part-time receptionist at the age of 14. Eventually, she became the full-time receptionist and conveyancing secretary for RE/MAX Penticton Realty. As a result, Diane now has a comprehensive knowledge of the legal and paperwork aspects of real estate, with particular experience in contract writing and enforceability.
While studying to be a REALTOR®, Diane worked as a customer liaison for a residential condo developer, helping buyers arrange custom alterations to their homes. This on-site experience in multi-unit construction gave Diane to a thorough understanding of development, large project marketing, and the construction industry. Diane also has a strong appreciation (okay, let’s call it love) for things with vintage charm. This gives her a keen eye for character properties, old homes with original details, and diamonds-in-the-rough just begging for restoration.
Born and bred on Penticton’s Naramata bench, Diane grew up enjoying the family pastimes of equestrian competition and downhill skiing. She loves to spend her free time flying down the hills at Apex in the winter. Summertime finds her running along the KVR, learning to sail or paddleboarding on the lake with friends, or cruising around town on her vintage bike. Diane’s other passion is travel: she has backpacked across many countries and is happily working through her long list of places to visit. Diane and her husband own and farm a vineyard acreage on her beloved Naramata bench.
