About Me



Susan was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder with a degree in Psychology. After college she traveled extensively in Europe ending up in Amsterdam, where she lived for awhile with friends.

After her European adventure, Susan returned to Boulder where she met a man who introduced her to the world of professional dance. After several years of study, she was asked to go to Egypt with a dance troupe. While performing in Egypt, Susan caught the eye of the head of Folkloric Dance, who took her under his wing and let her study folk dance and ballet with the Folkloric Dance Troupe. After returning to the states, Susan performed professionally and taught dance until the birth of her first child, a son named Matt.

When Matt was a year old, Susan and her husband decided to move from Boulder to Malibu, a dream come true for Susan as she had wanted to live in California since she was a child. Shortly after buying and moving into a home in Malibu, Susan gave birth to a second child, a daughter named Elizabeth.

After the birth of Elizabeth, Susan started a children's clothing business which she ran for a few years. She then studied to become a make-up artist and got a job promoting several major make-up lines and doing make-up for fashion shows and movies. While working on movie sets Susan was bitten by the acting bug so she took commercial classes with Tepper Gallegos in Hollywood and landed a commercial on her first audition. After that Susan continued to act in commercials and do some print work until a major strike brought work in Hollywood to a screeching halt. Susan was a single Mom by now and needed full-time work with a steady income, so she decided to make the career change of her life and get into the real estate business.

Susan began her real estate career in the mortgage business, which has proven to be a vital asset to her real estate expertise. Eleven years ago, Susan had the good fortune to meet Kim Collen Ross, the manager of the Coldwell Banker East office, who asked her to join the Coldwell Banker sales team, which she enthusiastically accepted.

Susan has been involved in volunteer work of many kinds as well as kids sports and the P.T.A. since her children were young. She has also volunteered her time at Santa Monica hospital in the maternity ward and for various other local charities.  

Five years ago, Susan adopted a wonderful baby boy, Dillon, who is the light of her life and a wonderful addition to her family. She is an advocate for adoption and has encouraged and guided others through the adoption process.

Susan has a thriving real estate sales business. She lists and sells houses, condos, land and commercial real estate. She is a specialist in leases and vacation rentals. Susan works Malibu and all the surrounding LA areas. She also represents international real estate owners with properties, land and developments in Mexico, Costa Rica, San Salvador, Belize and even a castle in Germany.

Susan loves her work. She truly enjoys the interesting people she meets, and prides herself on the caring and concerned interest she takes in her clients. Susan strives to give her clients personal, honest assistance and attention. If you wish to buy or list your property with Susan Diamond, please give her a call at (310) 924-1744.
