About Dianne Ray
I have almost thirty years in business management in real estate, teaching, hospitality, tourism and service industries.
I was born in the Western District in Victoria, my schooling was in Hamilton and Melbourne and my Tertiary Education was at Melbourne and Monash Universities. My family consists of 4 sons, 3 daughter in-laws and 5 grandchildren. Over the last 14 years I made my home in Queensland and have recently moved back to Victoria to be closer to my family.
Over my life time I have travelled extensively throughout Australia and numerous times overseas. My interests are obviously travel, all aspects of sport especially golf, tennis, outdoor pursuits, fine dining, appreciation of wine and love meeting people.
I gained my Bachelor of Education and taught secondary and TAFE students for a number of years and studied for my Masters in Business Administration. I have been self-employed for the last 20 years comprising owning and operating an exclusive 4.5 star B&B; established an e-commerce business involving the hospitality and accommodation industry; in selling, marketing, training workshops, relief service and management. I changed my career path ten years ago and have been in real estate and business broking.
I am a licensed real estate agent in Victoria and Queensland and a member of Best Agents. My involvement in real estate has been very satisfying and I enjoy the interaction with the buyers and sellers. In my role as a Real Estate Agent, I am able to effectively fulfil the needs of clients and this is my passion, and to use my skills to obtain a win/win situation for everyone involved.
I believe in the old traditional values of respect, integrity and genuineness and I am very passionate about helping people with their needs and I focus on listening to and genuinely helping my clients.
I am a very honest, natural outgoing person who enjoys life to the fullest
