Her ability to understand, manage and integrate both the big picture and the details is one of the things that sets Diane Dorin apart in the dynamic world of Westside real estate. “When I work with clients,” she says, “I am always trying to help them find the right balance between their immediate needs and their long-term interests—what might be best for them five, ten or even twenty years from now.”
An extremely skilled communicator and a real “people person,” Diane is also distinguished by her technological sophistication. From Internet marketing to social media, Diane is well-connected and is equally comfortable in person, on her Bluetooth or texting (“…but never when I’m driving!”). “What’s important is finding the approach that fits the client,” she says.
Her flexibility and flair for detail have earned Diane the respect of her peers and have helped her build a repeat- and referral-based business. She works with clients, including many first-time and move-up buyers, throughout the Westside and has specialized knowledge and resources within Santa Monica. “I understand how Santa Monica works,” she says. Diane’s professional recommendations include “anyone and anything a real estate client might need.”
Born in Australia, Diane moved to Los Angeles as teenager. She earned a degree in Art History from Cal State Northridge and has an enduring interest in design, construction and aesthetics: “I show a property as if I’m a curator in an art gallery.” She also operated her own training business prior to entering real estate, a background that helps her understand the complexities of contracts and the importance of accountability in her daily transactions.
Diane and her husband Harlan are both active in the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation, http://www.smmef.org. She is deeply committed to the mission of the foundation, "educational excellence for every child in our public schools." She allocates a portion of the proceeds of each sale to the foundation.
