Deva Diaz, Realtor
Deva was born and raised in Tallahassee. He attended local schools including Florida State University where he attained a Bachelor of Science in Advertising.
After graduating from FSU, he spent some time at a local advertising agency as a media buyer. It allowed him to get exposed to the inner workings of a client based environment where taking excellent care of the client was truly the top priority.
After leaving the agency, Deva began his career in sales working for Lincoln Financial Group as a Retirement Consultant. This took Deva all over the country, from small rural areas to major metropolitan cities and everything in between.
Deva got to experience working with individuals from all over the country, learning and listening from them in a pursuit to understand their needs. Not to mention, all the good food! Deva worked for Lincoln Financial Group in both Tallahassee and Atlanta.
After leaving Lincoln, Deva began a career in Pharmaceutical Sales. It was a great opportunity that allowed him to understand the intricacies of certain products and convey that information to various people in a way that made sense.
In addition to Pharmaceutical Sales, Deva has worked as a Locations Manager for a local AT&T store. Again, Deva could work in an environment where listening and understanding the clients played a vital role.
Deva really enjoys being outside here in the local community. He has lived in all parts of Tallahassee. Deva is an avid runner and believes running is the best way to really take in a place.
Running everywhere he has lived in Tallahassee has been a great experience to enjoy all this town has to offer as well learn about different communities. Deva also enjoys the local coastal areas and grew up going to St. George Island with his family.
Deva enjoys reading memoirs and biographies. He grew loving and playing soccer, but not being very good at it. You’re likely to see him in a locally owned coffee shop but once upon a time, was a Barista for Starbucks.
Deva first gained an interest in real estate in 2003 when he was exposed to the process in purchasing a home. Deva found the experience fascinating from the initial searching to signing of the paperwork at closing. It was exciting and at the same time such a learning experience for him.
With only basic knowledge of real estate at that point, Deva was able to learn by going through experience from the perspective of a client. Fortunately, Deva had a trusted consultant that helped and guided him through the process. He believes that made all the difference.
Deva has one daughter and three siblings in Tallahassee and Atlanta. In addition, he has a large extended family in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
