Diane Thomas Broker Associate with Urban Leasing & Real Estate. As a real estate consultant, I have been licensed since 2006, as well as bought and sold real estate for many years. My background is a senior executive for Macy's as Regional and Store Manager in California. With experience in marketing, buying, management, human resources and operations; real estate was a great transition back into the marketplace. I love what I do and take great pride in all aspects of my job to include educating, negotiating, listing properties, working with buyers. Helping each client find their favorite home or lease is the goal by making well informed financial decisions. I am always thinking what is the "best" investment balanced with what each client loves and cant live without. Whether we start with leasing or buying I can help you through all the steps with ease.
