After working almost 23 years for the State of Texas, primarily in supervisory and project management roles, in 1999 Diane decided to pursue one of her long-time interests—real estate investing. Diane and her husband, Rick, purchased, remodeled, and sold several properties on their own, learning as they went. After only two years Diane had had so many people encourage her to get her real estate license that she went for it! After more than 13 years as a licensed REALTOR, she says, “I’m having the time of my life! First, I get so much pleasure out of helping people meet their real estate goals and second, I love the hundreds of life-long friends with whom I’ve had the pleasure to know, pray for, socialize with, and assist whenever they have a real estate-related question.”
During the course of her career with the State of Texas, Diane excelled at, and received awards in, leadership, customer service, and mentorship. As a full-service REALTOR®, she specializes in Texas residential real estate for both new and resale homes and continues to dabble in real estate investing. As a real estate agent, her clients have rated her with overall highest customer satisfaction ratings for seven out of seven keys factors for each of the last nine years. These key factors include: knowledge, scope of services, communication, responsiveness, keeping parties informed, professionalism, and overall outcome of the transaction.
Diane has completed almost three times as many hours as required for licensing by earning the following designations: Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Graduate REALTOR® Institute (GRI), Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), Master Certified Negotiation Expert (MCNE), Certified New Home Specialist (CNHS), Residential Construction Certified (RCC), Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) and Electronic Professional (e-PRO).
Having recently moved to JP and Associates REALTORS®, Diane is now growing her own brand and team, the Five Star Premier Properties Group, where she expects to continue her history of exceptional service by joining JP and Associates to further our goal of always exceeding expectations.
On a personal note, Diane loves serving in her church and community, developing the spiritual aspects of her life, and spending time with family. When you put it all together, she says, “I love the Lord, I love people, and I love real estate!”

I most appreciated Diane’s knowledge and ability to get things done with a difficult closing. Diane was exceptional at getting the lender and builder to work with us. She was also great at helping us understand all the Greek [process, terminology, requirements, exceptions, etc.]. We would have never accomplished our goal of closing on this house without her. I would never think of using another realtor.

Please change the maximum allowed 5* rating on the feedback survey to 10* because this transaction was particularly difficult, but you guided us through every matter with dedication, persistence, and heartfelt concern for not only the financial implications but also the emotional and physical dilemmas resulting from our complex situation. We sincerely appreciated your genuine efforts to help simplify the complexities.
Diane, this is the second home you’ve sold for me in the last 2 years and again you have exceeded my expectation with this transaction. You kept me focused and informed, leading the way through the whole process. Thank you so much! I was WOWED again!!!
-Name Withheld (seller)
This is our 4th transaction with Diane. She's incredibly competent, knowledgeable, efficient and kind. She always works extremely hard to represent us well and to our benefit. We are so thankful to have had her as a part of our lives during seasons of change.
-Byrd Family (sellers)
Thank you for the extra efforts you made to help us find an amazing investment opportunity, but especially in guiding us through all the factors and considerations of owning a rental property. We were lost before we found you, and now you've guided us through our 4th purchase in 18 months! Needless to say, we’re extremely impressed with how much more knowledgeable you are than the dozens of agents we tried using over the last 7 years.
-Name Withheld (buyer/investor)
I was WOWed from the very beginning to the end of this transaction. You were spot on about the value and the length of time it would take to sell due the amount of time it took to get the tenant out of the house and the house on the market. My hat is off to you for the hard work and your diligence in keeping up with this transaction. Thank you so much!
Diane, you have been absolutely amazing, going above and beyond on many occasions! Plus, you were thorough in your explanations and expectations, attentive, and super knowledgeable. You were amazing in communicating with us in a timely manner. We can’t say thank you enough for all you’ve done to help us close this chapter of our lives. Thank you for conducting yourself in such a Christ-like manner. We are humbled at God’s hand upon this transaction, and grateful to walk alongside you.
- The Dodds (sellers)
I don’t think I have words to fully express my gratitude! Your hard work, expertise and prayers were invaluable. I really appreciated your responsiveness at all times. I am thankful for your extensive
knowledge and openness when we needed more information. Your strength, thoroughness and dedication were a blessing. I know without a doubt that God’s hand has been and still is working in all of this. You were a big part of what He did. Thank you, thank you!
