Diana Ricciuti


I fell in love with Hawaii on a college trip and moved to Oahu's beautiful North Shore in 1997 from the Pacific Northwest. I got my real estate license in 1999 when I was 26 years old and have been fortunate to have a diverse journey since I started. Over the years in the business I’ve learned a tremendous amount through the ever shifting cycles since I started. I’m proud to have been nominated three times for the Aloha ‘Āina REALTOR® Awards. I’m a designated international sales agent and a luxury homes specialist. I also manage amazing Hawaii vacation homes and long-term rental properties island-wide.

I LOVE my clients! Helping them find their perfect spot in Hawaii is a passion for me, and I take a highly personal approach to client service, adding attention to detail and a high level of service. Throughout my career, I have sold large parcels of vacant land, I’ve been on sales teams through the construction of high-rise buildings from the ground to the Penthouse level, and I’ve sold plantation homes to families that saved their money to buy their childhood home. It's been a very rewarding and challenging ride!

I have a passion for art and design, travel, and cooking. In my downtime, I love to experiment in the kitchen with my husband who is a pilot, and to travel to exotic places. We can usually be found outdoors, near the ocean, enjoying Hawaii's year-round, near-perfect weather.

I chose Hawai‘i Life for their modern approach to doing business and also for their warm, progressive company culture, which fits my values and lifestyle. I look forward to helping you find your perfect Hawaii home.

What my clients are saying...

Diana Ricciuti is the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with, and I have been buying and selling homes for myself over ten times in the last 36 years. This includes housing in Utah, Kansas, Arizona, California and Hawaii as I moved for professional job growth and in retirement (I hold a Ph.D. in history and have worked in both the academic and museum fields). She has worked with me in both buying and selling of personal real estate.

Diana possesses the ability to work well with the people involved in real estate transactions including buyers, sellers, escrow and loan agents. When negotiating or trying to accomplish other things, she is diplomatic but firm and able to get all to work together, sometimes a big task with the number of individuals involved and in differing physical locations—an impressive talent. No problem is too big, and she is persistent in a timely manner.

She does not leave you waiting but is very responsive and supportive. I found that when I had a question she responded rapidly. Buying and selling can be a stressful and unpredictable business but you know she is on your side and will produce excellent results. She is a true professional and works with precision, skill, a great design sense such as in staging a home and with obvious pride in her work. Diana gets to know her client’s real estate needs and works tirelessly to accomplish their goal —helping her client to buy or sell real estate. Thank you.

Wish we met Diana years ago and thanks for turning our home into a high value rental! She redefined our experience with property managers and is a 6-star service!

We live out of state and in 3 months she turned around a renovation of a 30 yr old kitchen, update of baths and decor throughout and expertly prepared our home for rental… and over Christmas time. She is hands on, meticulous, honest, and transparent. With a good design eye and mindful of our tastes, she was critical of the workmanship. She engaged a great team and managed the contractors as if they were in her home - quality, materials, and budget-wise, she personally attended the details giving us complete confidence and comfort as out-of-town owners."

Top off a truly wonderful experience with placement of good renters and a price higher than we expected.
