Friendship, loyalty, generosity and love were the guideposts of his life. Blessed are those of us who were touched by his grace and style.
The legacy began in 1985 when Jim Damone and his wife Martha first opened the doors on their newest venture, a real estate office to serve a community they had loved and raised their family in. A well known and generous personality, “Diamond Jim” as he was known, named the company Diamond Realty. As their success grew, Jim invited his daughter Tina and her husband Roger to move back from Houston. Roger joined the office and a multi-generational family business was born.
The early 90’s brought with it a sluggish economy and health issues for Jim so the Diamond Realty team decided to disband at this time and Roger joined forces with another agency, shuttering the Diamond Realty name for a time, but always with the hope to relaunch Diamond Realty in the future. Sadly, Jim Damone passed away from cancer in 1999 before he saw that goal became reality.
In 2009, Roger, now with the assistance of Tina, was once again ready to launch the Diamond Realty name, along with another successful local realtor Frank Provance, whom Roger had been working with. Now celebrating their 10th year, they continue to serve the community they love, live and play in with the same passion, exuberance and vision that Jim embodied when he first opened Diamond Realty almost 40 years ago.
Diamond Realty will fulfill the needs of our clients and customers through the efficient and professional delivery of quality services as Vermont Realtors, with pride and integrity in a straight forward and honest spirit of teamwork.
Over the many years in this business, what our Clients depend on most is having peace of mind that we are always here to help. Whether to find someone to repair the deck, fix the furnace, answer questions about the community or to check and see if the lights were left on. Always searching to let you know when the perfect home has come available or guide you through the process in the sale of your home. That personal touch, a commodity that the internet, magazines or television, although great tools, cannot provide. That personal interaction that builds friendships and close bonds that grow year after year.
With living and raising our families in the community we work in, our ties and connections are invaluable assets we offer that cannot be overlooked whether you are searching for a vacation home and the Vermont Lifestyle or for your permanent residency to fulfill a lifelong dream.
That is the foundation of our business. The confidence and comfort of having a local knowledgeable professional to count on, and a friend that is there for you when you need them. We look forward to many years of building business relationships and more importantly friendships...
