Diana Turner grew up in West Los Angeles and Palm Springs. She was surrounded by the real estate business. Her father was a successful Palm Springs/Palm Desert broker, and it was likely she would be drawn to a similar career. However, after graduating from USC-University of Southern California with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, she took a slight detour spending more than 20 years working in major media. Her positions included: Los Angeles Manager for Redbook, Cosmopolitan and Good Housekeeping magazines. She also held executive roles with Disney Internet and International Channel.
Diana has purchased many houses and investment properties herself, over the years. When the opportunity arose, she became a Realtor in 2004. She covers all areas of L.A’s Westside to the South Bay -Palos Verdes. She has been a Top Producer.
Diana believes in giving back to the communities she serves, especially to the schools. She has given thousands of dollars to the local school districts such as the Manhattan Beach Educational Foundation. She also serves on several Boards for USC alumni to raise funds for student scholarships with leadership roles in the Trojan League of the South Bay and as V.P. House Board/Kappa Kappa Gamma.
When not working, she’s exercising at her favorite gym. Or traveling. Some recent vacations included river rafting/hiking in Jackson Hole, WY, whale watching/boating near Seattle/San Juan Islands and zip-lining through the tropical rain forest in Costa Rica.
