From traveling the world as an Emerging Markets Investment Professional to navigating the winding country roads of Litchfield County, Diana Imperatore Bisselle truly embodies the phrase "local expertise, global connections".

As a resident of Lakeville, CT, Diana has deep roots in, and an unparalleled understanding of, the local real estate market. Born and raised in neighboring Sharon, CT, her parents Philip and Dobrila Waugh founded Waugh Real Estate, a well-known local brokerage covering the Tri-State area for over 30 years. This exposure has instilled in her the importance of superior client service and professional integrity. 

Prior to and complementing her real estate career, Diana worked in New York City for several international investment banks and a hedge fund specializing in Russia, Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Middle East as both an Equity Salesperson and Emerging Markets Portfolio Manager. She has an undergraduate degree in International Relations and Soviet Studies from Boston University and an MA/MBA in Politics and Finance from NYU. 

During her 20+ years in finance, she lived in both Old Greenwich and Darien allowing her to be well-versed in both Litchfield and Fairfield County. She is often found liaising between the two counties, leveraging the resources of the many Sotheby's offices from the coastline to the Litchfield Hills. This is further enhanced by a robust global network unique to Sotheby's.

She has been an involved parent at Pear Tree Point School in Darien, Indian Mountain School in Lakeville and Kent School in Kent, CT. She is a Board Member at Women's Support Services and enjoys her "Chairperson for Volunteers" role at Trade Secrets - the annual garden event benefiting Women's Support Services.

She is licensed in CT, NY and MA and is fluent in Russian.

If first impressions are anything, Diana is a best-case win for your company. From our first phone call to the moment she escorted me to the lawyer's office, I was always met with a pleasant, calming, smile; exacting knowledge of the area (used mainly to gently guide me away from seeing properties she knew would not be a good fit for me); professionalism; accessibility; and the constant feeling that I could trust her guidance every step of the way.I know whom I'll be calling in the future.Thank you.

Diana was a godsend! She took a difficult situation in hand, with competence and foresight at every turn. Her advice was always on target. Her capacity for diplomacy is extraordinary. She is a consummate professional. I am grateful.

Diana Bisselle was wonderful. When we first showed her the house, she saw it's special qualities exactly as we did. We were amazed at the work she did for us, & the house was sold much quicker than we had anticipated. We credit Diana for this. She made the entire process painless for us, from start to finish. We will highly recommend her in the future.Clark & Claire Smith

Clark & Claire Smith

Diana Bisselle was amazing for us, from start to finish. She saw the special qualities of our house, the property, & its location exactly as we did, before we even told her what we found special about it. We will highly recommend Diana to anyone we know that may sell their house in the future.

Clark & Claire Smith

Diana Bissell, our Sotheby's agent, was fantastic throughout the entire process. Always there to answer every question regardless of the nature of the inquiry. In that regard, I would like to change your question to "How likely is it that you would recommend Diana Bissell to a friend or colleague?" Extremely likely and without reservation. Having bought or sold 6 houses in our lifetime, Diana is by far the best agent we have ever had. Sincerely,Eric and Elise Cieplik

Eric & Elise Cieplik

Diana is an excellent and thoughtful agent.

Ronald & Judith Frost

Working with Diana was an absolute pleasure throughout the entire process, from initial viewing to closing. Dealing with a Foreclosure property was complicated and daunting, but Diana was extremely dedicated to our vision of preserving an 1860's farmhouse. Diana aggressively pursued potential problems to find solutions, whether it was researching town hall records, site visits, or local guidance. As a Sharon resident, Diana really cares about the community as well as her clients and it genuinely shows. I would highly recommend working with Diana Bisselle on any project.Sincerely,Tom & Lizzie
