Our agents are known in their communities for their integrity and the exceptional level of service they provide.

Local Expertise. Global Connections.

A dynamite negotiator with an easy grace under pressure and an intimate knowledge of the Atlanta market, Dianne Harnell Cohen specializes in a level of professionalism and service that is best-in-class, anticipating clients’ needs and advocating for their interests as if they were her own. From the quality of the vendors, brokers and contractors she brings on board to the time she spends organizing every detail and being present at every showing, Dianne is personally invested in her client’s success and works tirelessly to deliver the ideal outcome.

Working with Dianne is about the edge that comes from having experience, a stellar work ethic and an encyclopedic knowledge of Atlanta neighborhoods on your side. Prior to her career in real estate, she served as the Commissioner of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs for the city of Atlanta under Mayor Shirley Franklin for eight years, and in this role, she was instrumental in the formation of the Atlanta Beltline and the development of Piedmont Park.

Responsive and well-spoken, her great strength as a communicator lies in her ability to listen, and she is dedicated to adapting her approach to each client’s needs and how they work best. As a negotiator, Dianne excels at absorbing/organizing information, identifying what’s relevant and anticipating what’s next, ensuring that her client’s interests are protected at every step. As an investment advisor, clients consistently describe her expertise and good judgment as indispensable. With a resume that includes 18 years of sales management experience at CBS Television, running her own media buying firm and four years as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Governor Roy Barnes, she is no stranger to project-managing complex and/or confidential scenarios.

What truly sets Dianne apart as a REALTOR®, however, is the personal connection and trust she builds with clients who walk away from a transaction with the highest respect and testimonials* for her abilities and invariably become friends. An agent who thrives on her work and the people she works with, Dianne is a consummate champion of Atlanta who works well with all types of clients and is knowledgeable about all aspects of Georgia real estate.

The devoted wife of Dr. Richard Cohen, mother to five daughters and grandmother to six grandchildren, Dianne partners with her daughter, Missi, an agent with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty, to serve a broad range of clients. She is actively involved with International Women’s Forum and Leadership Atlanta.
