Diane Tallen brings more than 30 years of San Diego real estate expertise in both residential and commercial real estate with her drive, energy, and her entrepreneurial approach to each transaction. Unique strategies are designed for each client and the attention to detail and follow through is unsurpassed. Diane has extensive knowledge of the coastal real estate markets and stellar negotiation skills for clients buying and selling residences or investment properties.
Diane attended San Diego State University on a tennis scholarship, and though she has a long tradition of real estate in her family, she became a computer programmer after college. It did not take long for her to follow her true passion into real estate, working for developers in La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe before transitioning into residential real estate sales. Diane was awarded “Rookie of the Year” her first year. She later ventured out on her own, selling real estate throughout San Diego County.
Diane has owned training companies, developed products for real estate agents to improve their selling skills and developed a coaching program for a national small business growth and self-development franchise.
Diane is not only savvy in real estate, sales and marketing, but always seeks to grow and improve to best represent and protect her clients.
Diane resides in Cardiff with her husband and son, traveling often to their home in Mill Valley, California. She enjoys spending time with her family, friends, involvement in humanitarian and environmental causes, reading, fitness and travel.
Diane has helped me to stop looking at the past and holding on to old stories about myself, and instead stay in the present and love and appreciate the person I am today.
She has also guided me to create exciting possibilities for the future, new ways of being. I have dealt with several old “gremlins” from the past, and have learned to recognize them and avoid them.
It has been a wonderful journey so far, peeling off the ugly layers to find a beautiful and loving woman who has so much potential to make a difference in the lives of my family and friends. Every day brings new and interesting “ah-hahs”, and the realization that I can create a new story about myself that is caring and gentle.
I love the work I have done with Diane and look forward to the many more discoveries to come.
Our revenues and profits are up, our team’s productivity is up, and my spirits are definitely up. Now I truly enjoy working, and feel like I am finally living! Thank you, Diane!
I am very happy to tell you that your coaching enabled me to have the courage to build my catering business, attend the finest culinary school in Southern California , and make connections with all the right people to grow my business! And, wonderful things still continue to come my way! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I worked with Diane Kohler for nearly one and a half years as she coached me through the process of reinventing a business in my community. Diane was patient, knowledgeable, encouraging, and supportive. She always had time to answer my questions, she was timely in her communication, and with her guidance I was able to increase revenue 240% and membership 225% in less than 16 months.
She can take a very daunting process and simplify it. From business plan through the implementation process, Diane was always there offering suggestions and reinforcement. Regardless of your business, or where you are in the process, I would recommend having Diane there to help….your success may count on it!
