Diana Donovan thoroughly enjoys connecting with buyers and sellers on a human level to discover their unique situations and expectations. Her style is a unique blend of insatiable curiosity, strategic thinking and polished organizational skills, plus a great sense of humor, out-of-the-box thinking and a personal touch that makes the real estate experience pleasurable.
For Diana, selling real estate is more than just a career; it's a passion! With more than 20 years of comprehensive business experience across a broad range of industries, she is delighted to utilize her diverse skill set to help clients find special homes. Based on her own exceptional experience with a Sotheby's agent when buying her own home, Diana knew that when she made the transition to real estate, Premier Sotheby's International was the only choice for her.
Diana is proud to be working with the Hayes Team headed by consistent top producer Terry Hayes (#1 for 2011 in Charlotte, Sarasota and Manatee Counties). She strives to provide every client with the highest level of support and service, using a hands-on, creative and individualized approach. Diana moved to Sarasota from Michigan in 2004. Prior to entering real estate, she worked in the Office of the President at Ringling College of Art and Design, and oversaw the creation of Florida State University's regional medical school campus in Sarasota. These experiences involved her working very closely with a multitude of high-profile and demanding executive-level colleagues and clients.
Diana holds Bachelor and Master level degrees in Psychology from The University of Michigan and Michigan State University, respectively. Her call to volunteer is fulfilled as a mentor to a middle school student with Take Stock in Children. In her leisure time, Diana is committed to improving her hack tennis game, and enjoys pursuing her true appreciation for the visual arts.
