moved ‘home’ to Oregon in 1994 and decided to never leave its natural beauty and intimate landscapes. She has been in the appraisal business since 1998 working for appraisal firms but mostly running her own business as a Certified Residential Appraiser. Her appraising experience includes residential single family, multi-family, small and large acreages, custom homes and the ‘unique’ properties the Willamette Valley is so fond of. Also a VA appraiser, she considers it an honor to help in some small way those who have served our country. Diane enjoys all the outdoors have to offer including hiking, kayaking and lots of road trips. She is also a published author, photographer and multi-media artist.
