Meet YourSenior Mortgage Loan ConsultantPatrick Diomede

A first-generation American with strong ties to Italy, Pat Diomede grew up in Chicago in a bilingual household. He speaks English and Italian and he has used language to his benefit across two successful careers, during which he has empowered team members, created solid relationships in the community, and made a lasting difference for those around him. Pat won the draft lottery in 1971 by being assigned number 29. This resulted in receiving an invitation from the war department of the United States of America to serve his country in the US Army. He liked the Army and stayed as a careerist where he worked his way up to the rank of First Sergeant in 20 years at positions in Germany, Italy, and across the US. He landed in Arizona in 2005 after having repeatedly visited his father here, realizing he had fallen in love with the Valley of the Sun and wanted to grow some roots. When his career in the military ended, Diomede searched for his next adventure, which came to him serendipitously when he experienced two bad mortgage transactions.

He vowed that no one should have to endure what he did, and he began his journey into the field of mortgage banking. His goal: maintain open, transparent communications throughout the entire relationship. He has done that time and again — not only in mortgages since 1993, but in life. A lifelong learner, Diomede is excited to add to his repertoire daily. He is always fired up to go to work, and he is passionate about educating homebuyers about the ins and outs of the mortgage industry. Even if they purchased a house in the last five years, there is still much information to share to keep them in the loop. Diomede is an avid networker who ties his interests and experiences together seamlessly. A member of BNI Grand Networkers, Toastmasters, Peoria Chamber of Commerce, Veterans Advocacy, Friends of Freedom, and VAREP: Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals, the underlying theme is always to give without expectations. He loves to connect people; in fact, one of Diomede’s favorite things to say is, “I gotta guy!” No matter what his friends, colleagues, or customers need, he is engaged to find them a solution and be their resource.

A passionate speaker on networking, leadership, and veterans’ advocacy, Diomede has spoken at organizations across the West Valley and in the real estate community at large. He is a member of the National Associate of Mortgage Bankers, WeServ, and the National Association of Realtors. Pat has two adult sons and five grandsons. He lives in the West Valley with his wife Sandy and their two golden doodles named Maggie and Daisy. He enjoys golf, bowling, reading, cooking, and fantasy football. After a long day, you can find him kicking back in front of a good sports game on the television.
