Diana Alfortish, our broker, graduated from Loyola University in New Orleans in 1980 with a degree in Business Administration majoring in accounting. She then worked as an accountant for three mortgage companies. Looking to expand her knowledge, she became an insurance agent, specializing in property and casualty insurance as well as life and health insurance. She joined the family business, Pivach Agency, Inc., and worked in the insurance division. In 1982, she became part owner of the company and, in 1983, the manager of the company.
In 1985, Diana decided on another bold move and became a Licensed Realtor in Louisiana in an effort to contribute more to the family business. She has been a Licensed Real Estate Broker in Louisiana since 1990. She has experience in residential, commercial, and land sales. In residential sales, she is a Certified Residential Specialist representing buyers, sellers and builders. She is actively involved in land sales and was part of the Planning and Marketing Team for 11 residential subdivisions including 3 waterfront developments. Furthermore, Diana represents many commercial interests. She is a Leasing Agent for landlords and tenants as well as representing buyers and sellers for retail, industrial and general commercial use property.
During the last ten years, Pivach Real Estate, LLC has sold over $100,000,000 in residential, land and commercial interests. Diana is a member of several associations including the New Orleans Metropolitan Association of Realtors, Certified Residential Specialist, and the Plaquemines Association of Business and Industry.
Diana had the benefit of growing up in the family business, working beside her parents at a very young age. Her parents instilled in her long ago the requirement to put the client first and that is what she expects from every agent in our group. Diana’s degree in accounting and work experience in finance and insurance enable her to assist her clients and our real estate agents with the complicated issues involved in real estate transactions. Celebrating 30 years in real estate, she looks forward to working with you to meet your real estate needs!
