Experience, results and a dash of fun.
I have been in love with real estate since I can remember. I enjoy spending my days working with amazing clients, marketing homes for sale, negotiating contracts and handing keys over to happy new homeowners. I take customer service to a new level. I put energy, integrity and accessibility into every detail of your real estate transaction. I am passionate about helping you achieve your goals and I develop strong connections with each client. I listen to my clients. As a result, I have earned both my clients’ trust and my successful track record by continually delivering results and an enjoyable experience. And I keep my clients informed every step of the way.
I am grateful for my educational opportunities, earning a degree in Communications from the University of Texas at Austin and a J.D. from Boston University School of Law. My previous experiences include owning StellaBeam boutique in Seattle, WA and fundraising for several nonprofits including The New School, Madison Square Boys and Girls Club and Alicia Keys’ Keep a Child Alive. Through my career choices, I have solidified my skills in building relationships, sales, marketing, communication and negotiation. I am a multi-year winner of NJ Realtors® Circle of Excellence Award. I am recognized as one of the 10 Best Real Estate Agents in New Jersey for Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Real Estate Agents for multiple years, and consistently receive the Five Star Professional Award. I am in the top 5% in real estate production in Essex County. I am proud that my knowledge and experience translate to peace of mind for my clients.
A long-time city dweller, I moved to the South Orange/Maplewood (SOMA) area from Brooklyn, discovering that not only could I survive outside the city, but that I had found my dream community. I am a proud board member for MEND, a local nonprofit that raises funds to help alleviate hunger in Essex County, and I serve on the NCJAR’s scholarship and community committees. Naturally curious, I am always in search of new restaurants, local music and neighborhood festivals. I love my dog, design, a good laugh, morning coffee and my family.

"Amazing experience working with Dyanna. She was professional, and she helped us every step along the way. Even played therapist a few times during the process! So shocked and happy we got $175,000 over ask! Now we will have some fun figuring out what to do with all that extra money! :) " Gar Lewis
"Dyanna was far and away the best realtor I've ever worked with. She was thoughtful, extremely knowledgeable about both individual properties and the broader market, responsive, thorough and a joy to be around. She made a daunting, time-crunched buying process in a terrible buyers market genuinely fun and we are thrilled with the end result." Devon Pendleton
"Dyanna was great throughout our entire home buying process. It was our first time going through this process and she took us through everything step by step to ensure we were aligned. She also has a fantastic network that we relied on heavily as we finalized our home purchase. Highly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell." Muhammad Arif
"Dyanna was wonderful to work with -- always responsive and pro-active. She provided terrific guidance about my recent purchase and went way beyond what one normally expects from an agent. She is a thoughtful, caring and very competent person and I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for real estate help in the areas she covers." Olivia Adler
"Dyanna was amazing! First, we got six figures over asking! Dyanna managed the process and gave us great advice to maximize the value of our home. But to me the greatest testament of her was how she took care of us. A friend who was a realtor in our area but who retired to another state followed our real estate deal both our sale and our purchase of another home- both managed by Dyanna. Her assessment of Dyanna, whom she never met, was "Your realtor truly cares about you. She is that rare breed of a realtor who puts her clients interests first." That is who Dyanna is! She ALWAYS put our interests first. I wholeheartedly, and 100% recommend her without reservations. I will use her again without question should we need real estate guidance. Thank you Dyanna! You are awesome! " Karen DiScala
"Dyanna was the perfect agent to sell our home. She was exactly what we were looking for in an agent - knowledgeable, responsive, accessible and thorough. She was all that and an absolute pleasure to work with due to her thoughtfulness and open and friendly nature. She helped us sell our home quickly by offering guidance and recommendations regarding contractors, home stager, attorney, etc. to get it ready for sale, as well as helped facilitate a smooth negotiation/sale process due to her excellent market knowledge and attention to detail. You will be happy to work with her guaranteed!. We highly recommend her! " Miriam Norman
