Diana Stephens Farris, a native of Baton Rouge, has been practicing commercial real estate since 2004. She has worked in various cities throughout the state, but her favorite market is Lafayette, where she attended ULL and fell in love with the city, people and culture. Diana specializes in land acquisitions and office development, having sold over 500,000 square feet of new office construction, prior to its completion.
Her 14-year employment with a local developer/contractor taught her the intimate details of turn-key development and construction. The majority of her office experience has been in the medical field, so she recognizes the complexity of each client's specific needs, no matter how unique.
She's been on all sides of the deal - buyer, seller and agent for both - so she understands how to get a deal done successfully and fairly. Her close relationships with land owners, developers, contractors, architects, engineers, lenders, and governmental entities, allow her to provide first-hand knowledge and data on these processes, while easily obtaining new information and proposals for her clients. She also enjoys retail and restaurant leasing/selling/development
