Diane Rhine

Real Estate Professional in Toms River, New Jersey
United States
 

Diane Rhine has been a fixture on the Ocean County real estate scene for several decades. Her commitment to excellence is evident in her impressive career history and devotion to community service. Diane graduated cum laude from Trinity University in Washington, D.C. in 1971 with a B.A. in American history. After teaching history at Toms River High School South for several years, she decided on a career change, becoming a real estate agent in 1973. In 1979, she purchased the storied real estate firm Citta & Cobb from the Citta family, and at the age of 30, became one of the few female business owners in Ocean County. Twenty-one years later, in 200, Diane teamed up with Roseanne Citta to form Citta Rhine, LLC Realtors, which extended her marketing reach into the Seaside area. Ever eager to evolve, she formed Rhine & Associates in 2009 and continues - along with her accomplished sales staff - to list and sell residential properties in Ocean County. Diane's community involvement, coupled with her civic achievements and honors, demonstrates her personal stake in the growth and betterment of Ocean County. In recent years, she has served as director and major grants chairperson for the OceanFirst foundation, which has contributed more than 20 million dollars to non-profit organizations in Ocean and Monmouth counties. In addition, Diane has filled numerous volunteer roles at the United Way of Ocean County, including president, finance chair, admissions chair, and fund-distribution committee member. For serving as director and for her successful fundraising efforts, Diane was named to 2007 Volunteer of the Year and received the Community Caring award. During her many years of membership with the Ocean County Board of Realtors, Diane served two terms as president and was named Realtor of the Year in 1998. She also chaired many committees, including the real estate risk committee and the grievance committee, and was president of the New Jersey Shore Multiple Listing Service. In 1997 came another milestone: Diane was elected to the board of directors of OceanFirst Bank, becoming the first female director in the bank's history, as well as the only female director of any publicly traded company in Ocean County. At the bank, she has served as chairperson of the compensation and trust committees. Her experiences as a real estate broker and a banker have given her a clear understanding of what it takes to continue to grow a business in Ocean County and thrive. Diane and her husband Paul, a certified public accountant, have lived in Toms River since 1975. They raised two sons, Jay and Jared, both of whom live and work in Toms River. Her most recent accomplishment is perfecting the role of Grandma to Josh, Grace, Jake and Brody.
