Diana Beam and her family sailed to St. John from her home town in Florida in 1982 and built their first Coral Bay home while living aboard their 46′ sailboat and cruising the islands.
Real estate has been a rewarding career for Diana and allowed her ample time with her two children and their many activities while supporting their schools and extracurricular activities. She served on the Board of Directors and as Co-Chairperson for Pine Peace School’s (now The Gifft Hill School) auction for five years.
Diana has a background in banking that has meshed well with her sales of commercial and residential real estate. Her designations as Real Estate Broker as well as Graduate, Realtor Institute (GRI), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS)andCertified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS) are signs of her commitment to professionalism and to keeping informed of the latest trends in St. John’s real estate market. Signature sales have included waterfront parcels, commercial complexes, many properties on the north shore and some of the most beautiful homes on the island.
Deciding to branch out on her own after 15 years of sales was a decision based mostly on the fact that much of her business was referred to her by other RE/MAX agencies. Finding the ideal in-town location, Diana opened up RE/MAX Island Paradise Realty in January 2004. Her greatest joy has been helping others make their dream of owning a piece of this tropical paradise a reality. After 6 years, Re/Max Island Paradise Realty reloacted to the prestigous and upscale shopping center, Mongoose Junction.
Putting the finishing touches on her new Coral Bay home and with her two children now graduated from colleges in Boston and Savannah, Diana finds ample time to make RE/MAX Island Paradise Realty one of the top real estate agencies on St. John, offering Buyers and Sellers personal service and sharing over 20 years of island knowledge.
