We had the good fortune of connecting with Tim Diamond and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tim, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is definitely my drive and my family. I have always been driven and believe there is always room to improve. This attitude has always pushed me to reach further and work harder. This past year I have been blessed to welcome my daughter into this world which has given me even more motivation than before to succeed. I must also give credit to the incredibly innovative company I work for, Compass, and my professional partners in the business that use their talents and skills to set me up for success.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Being that I’ve been in San Diego for 40 years, my list is very long. To me, it’s paramount to take advantage of the incredibly beautiful, sunny weather the city is known for. You can never go wrong taking a daily walk, run or bike ride along the coast. Whether it be the on 101 anywhere from Oceanside, through Carlsbad, dipping into Encinitas and ending in Del Mar, or cruising the coast and boardwalk in La Jolla into Pacific and Mission Beach, the coastline is pure perfection. Hitting the surf spots such as Marine Street, Horse Shoes, Stone Steps or Swami’s is also a must whether you’re a surfer or are just there to enjoy the scene. When it comes to restaurants, San Diego offers some of the country’s finest! Enjoy a meal at Wonderland, Cloak and Petal, OB Noodle House, Blue Water, Cotixan or Iron Side, then do a brewery tour of some of the city’s best -Resident Brewing, Belching Beaver, Modern Times, Ale Smith, Pizza Port, and Thorn, or select from a few of the other 100 plus amazing breweries we have. If we’re talking nightlife I’d say Little Italy, the Gaslamp District, East Village, North Park, Pacific Beach and Encinitas are the best places for a good time! San Diego has so much to offer, it’s hard to go wrong!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shout out to my family and professional partners! First I’d like to thank my beautiful wife Heather Diamond for the incredible job she does not only for the business, but for keeping things running at home for myself, our daughter and our furkids. I would also like to give a shoutout to my beautiful baby Elle Monet Diamond for inspiring me to be a better man each day! I’d like to give a huge shoutout to my Emmy award winning partner Tony Caranzo, our director of photography Alec Weinstein, our photographer Megan Sterling and our amazing transaction coordinator Kristen Jewell. I’m not sure where the Diamond Group would be without this incredibly talented team. I’d also like to give another huge shoutout to the leadership team and staff at Compass who do so much for us. Additionally, I’d like to thank our Title Rep, Ryan Lipsey, at Ticor Title and our Escrow Rep, Hunter Rittgers, at New Venture escrow who always answer our calls and make it happen.
