Diane Johnston has called Texas home for over three decades. With her results-driven work ethic and dedication to client service, she brings a unique understanding of the market to her clients.
As an Allie Beth Allman & Associates real estate agent, Diane carries an exceptional level of tenacity to the table with first-hand experience in a variety of areas such as remodeling and renovation, constructing new homes, decorating and more
“Homes are so personal, and everyone has their idea of their perfect space,” says Diane. And she understands the process … first-hand. “Our family has moved so many times (around Dallas) that I understand and appreciate how it can feel, as well as the ways a move can impact a family at different stages.”
“I’ve lived in Plano, Coppell, west of the tollway, east of the tollway, in north Dallas,” she says, which explains her depth of familiarity with the region, something she is always excited to share with her clients.
Diane’s career in fashion and modeling is significant. She logged time in Europe and major cities around the U.S. before coming to Dallas in the 1990s where she worked extensively with the Kim Dawson Agency.
Her career in Dallas tapped into an enviable, lifelong work ethic developed at an early age, and one that continues to this day. She’s worked exhaustively for her clients through building strong business and personal relationships over her years in Texas. Nowadays, Diane describes herself as “goal-oriented,” which she believes is her true “North Star,” and helps differentiate her when working with her clients.
Diane and Daryl Johnston, a former Dallas Cowboy player and network TV broadcaster, have been married since 1996. They live in the Preston Hollow section of Dallas and have two children. The couple’s son Aidan is a rising junior at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and daughter Evan is set to attend Syracuse University in the fall where she will play collegiate lacrosse. Diane is a dedicated wife, mother and community-connected professional who has worked on projects with her son at Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas, and daughter at The Hockaday School.
Diane is also a passionate runner who has completed five marathons as well as other runs. “When you cross that finish line, it's the greatest feeling in the world … a great feeling of accomplishment,” she explains with pride.
“Running has taught me so much about myself. “
Working with Allie Beth Allman & Associates is special to Diane. “I strive to be the best representative of the company and the family that Allie Beth has built,” she explains. “She’s such a wonderful role model, and I want to represent that … and be the best reflection of that I can be.
