In September of 2012, Diane La Mountaine and her husband moved to Santa Fe. Over the past 30+ years she has held Real Estate Licenses in three states, beginning in Washington, then in California, and now, New Mexico.
Diane has over 22 years of experience in international business development, sales and marketing, working within the computer software industry and telecommunications. She is known for her ability to identify and build strategic business, sales, development and marketing alliances and partnerships, solidifying deals while managing the relationships like no one else can. Diane uses an out of the box, proactive, yet tenaciously polite style in everything she takes on. She applies the same strong skills in what she calls the ART of Real Estate Services.
Her international business travels took her to Ireland, England, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, India and Japan. Many of the clients Diane worked with continued a relationship with her as she offered relocation services to the companies as they entered the U.S market. She maintains these ties and friendships today with Irish, German, French, Japanese, China and India-based businesses, as well as several Canadian-based companies.
Diane also has a true passion and training for art and design, opening a successful interior design business, La Mountaine Designs, and founding a non-profit, Art Association of the East Bay, Inc. As a licensed broker, many of her high-end clients turned to her for listing assistance after she completed their renovations and redesign.
While living and working in the Tri Cities area (Fremont, Newark, Union City), Diane found that local artists needed help finding places to present and market their work. On a volunteer basis, Diane founded and ran a gallery within Paddy’s Coffeehouse. The gallery would host 10 -12 shows a year. Along with the gallery " she founded the Fall Festival of the Arts, held in a city park each year. Artists, dancers, local yoga studios, musicians, food vendors and vintners support the event.
