Diane Shay

Salesperson, REALTOR®

What made you decide to become a REALTOR?

My “sales” career began at age 15 selling Avon  Products. I’ve always had a desire to help bring people together finding things they connect with. I have a  keen eye and passion for Interior decorating, but you know that thing called life that takes you on a different journey. I worked in the medical field managing medical offices, but I wanted to see what else was out there.  I got the opportunity to go into Property Management in a condominium Community. I really enjoyed and connected with the Real Estate field and knew it would be something I wanted to pursue.

Provide a brief description of your real estate background

When the market crashed in 2008 and I was looking for a change in life. The twist and turning roads of my life brought me to  Wild and Wonderful West Virginia which I call home now for over 11 years. I met my husband here and it is a wonderful place to raise children. I have an adult son and a daughter that my husband, and I fostered and adopted here in WV when she was 4. Every child deserves a chance in life. Moving here from another state, I understand the emotional and importance to find the right home and location. The drive to help people by being a good listener and find what is important to them in a home. I'm in the position in life to come back to my calling of Real Estate and bring buyers and sellers together so they can continue their journey of life.
