She’s outgoing and optimistic…always eager to find a positive solution to any situation. “I look for the win/win solution for all my clients.” Diann worked part time for Long Beach Memorial Hospital and Miller’s Children Hospital as a Certified Chaplain which she retired from in 2012.

Terry Eselun (Founder) has been selling real estate since 1980. She’s never been a “high pressure” broker. She prefers to listen carefully to what her clients need and want. She enjoys a sense of accomplishment when they achieve their dreams. “Each client has a unique situation and set of requirements. My goal is to assist them to their individual solution.” When she’s not helping clients, her passion is still surfing. In fact, last year for her 60th birthday she took a trip to the west coast of Vancouver Island and surfed perfect, isolated waves with black bears on the beach and eagles flying above.
