Prior to working in the financial services industry, Dianne was raised in Cupertino and watched Silicon Valley emerge. She received a B.A. with honors in Economics from U. C. Berkeley and a J.D. from Hastings College of Law. Past careers included Sales and Marketing roles for a legal research company, a start-up and a non-profit children’s nursery school. Detail-oriented and articulate, Dianne has the ability to create transparency even when speaking about the complexities of financial markets.
Dianne began her career in mortgage lending in 2001 when she joined Banker’s Network in Campbell, California. As soon as she was licensed, she joined a high volume mortgage office associated with a leading Bay Area real estate company in Oakland. Working closely with in-house Realtors, Dianne developed a consultative style, based on a personal commitment to each and every client.
Responding to the ever changing needs of her clients and the industry, Dianne joined RPM Mortgage/LaSalle Financial Services in 2004. Her passion for the work led to an expanding client base. She also developed educational programs and began to teach home buyer classes. Dianne became the top producer for her company. In 2012, she opened an office for RPM in Orinda. She also was invited to join a national Top Producer panel, speaking across the country. At the end of 2015 Dianne moved her business to Guaranteed Rate in response to the demand for lowest rates, fast, reliable timelines, access to the latest technology and a desire to open an office in Oakland. Now she has the benefit of a large bank whose efficiencies give her more time to focus on the client’s needs.
A responsible buyer will not only have their cash lined up for the purchase, but will have a plan for how to manage ownership of the property in the years ahead.
Dianne is a mother of three children, an avid skier and diver, and patron of several Bay Area arts organizations.
