About Dianna

Dianna Patterson was born and raised in "the county" - the name given to Aroostook County, Maine’s northernmost county known for its potato farms. As the oldest female in a family of eleven, she learned responsibility at an early age as mom’s second hand. At age five, she started working in the potato harvest and at age 16 was promoted to potato harvester!

In 1976, she graduated from Central Aroostook High School in Mars Hill, Maine and began working in the insurance field. She married her high school sweetheart Scott Patterson, and soon thereafter, moved out of state to Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts where they worked as caretakers and managers for private estates.
During their stay in Massachusetts, they started a wedding catering business known as "Parties by Dianna." Making someone’s wedding day extra special brought great joy to Dianna. Also during this time, the Pattersons started a home renovation business. They renovated 25 homes, usually gutting them, re-designing them and starting over from scratch.
In the year 2000, the Pattersons moved back to Maine. This time they settled in central Maine, not northern Maine where they continued doing renovation work. They also obtained their Maine real estate licenses and opened the South China office of Realty of Maine.
Now, they enjoy working with buyers and sellers on the purchases and sales of their own homes and investment properties. They know that special feeling you get when you find the perfect place to call home or the perfect end to a renovation project. Their goal is to develop good relationships with their buyers and sellers as they assist them in reaching their own goals.
“Our transaction with Dianna went very well. She was so patient with us and great about showing us many homes. She was especially attentive to our desire for this to be our last home and to all the criteria we needed for this phase of our lives. We would certainly refer Dianna to others.” Dec 2016

“Dianna was awesome! Great to work with. I had told her what I wanted and how much I could spend and she found a good match. We are very excited to have the land and the mill. We are going to clear the hemlocks and use them to build our home. We would highly recommend Dianna.” Nov 2016


“Dianna and Scott were very good to work with and did a very good job for me. Dianna was a great communicator. She knows that I am a very busy person, so she kept me informed by text or email. I would happily refer them both to anyone.” Nov 2016

“Dianna was helpful in making connections to make everything run smoothly. I would recommend Dianna to anyone looking in the Sebago Lakes region.”  MARCH 2016

“Dianna was great!  Previously I had looked at a house with the seller’s agent and that did not go well at all. Dianna was incredible…very helpful. I have already referred her to some other people.”  Oct 2015


“Working with Dianna was terrific. Most of the problems we encountered had to do with my bank dragging its feet. Dianna was always prompt in communicating with me and providing necessary contacts. I had not worked with a Realtor® in 25 years, but I quickly knew I could trust Dianna. She was very fair in working for both the seller and for me. I would absolutely refer anyone in Maine to Dianna.” July 2015
