Diane Ruano

With construction running in her paternal family for generations, Diane Ruano is passionate about building great teams around exceptional products. Her respect for craftsmanship was engrained in her from a very young age as she vividly recalls how she was constantly challenged to see past gender barriers and lead hands-on operations shoulder to shoulder with her own father and in many situations, alone all by herself.

In her book, Diane values teamwork above anything else. Her sensitive understanding of what qualifies as a winning team makes her a great communicator and an enabler armed with a high degree of emotional intelligence, unparalleled soft skills, and effective managerial disposition fueled by her strong work ethic and keen sense of compassion.

Before her transition to building high-end luxury homes, Diane served as the Director of Sales and Customer Success at a reputable landscaping contractor in Los Angeles, leading the growth of a diverse portfolio spanning high-end landscape and hardscape design.

When she is not negotiating on behalf of her clients, you can spot Diane at her local gym, doing squats and kickboxing. She is also fond of painting, baking, and spending time with her family.
