Lisa Cartolano
Group Leader

Equipped with an uncanny ability to put people at ease from the get-go, Lisa radiates with a refreshing sincerity all her own. Bolstered by over 15 years in industry and recognized as one of the East Bay’s top agents, after starting her career in 2005, she joined forces with Ellen Diamond at the helm of The DG group in 2007, forging a dynamic partnership that operates with compassion, honesty, and integrity.

A New Jersey native with unmistakable East Coast moxie, Lisa was lured west to attend the University of Washington and went on to land a job in Network Intrusion Detection at Boeing.She moved south with the arrival of her first son, serving as a Desktop Consultant at UC Berkeley before embarking into the real estate realm where she found her true calling.

Driven by a deep passion for helping other families put down roots, Lisa has a knack for listening to the goals of her clients and working tirelessly until they come to fruition. Calm under pressure and creative in her solutions, she merges a get-it-done attitude with outside-the-box thinking. Exceedingly knowledgeable and adept at forecasting market trends, she works to make a complicated process as simple as possible while educating her clients along the way.

After spending the past two decades in the Bay Area, Lisa has an intimate knowledge of her nuanced East Bay neighborhoods and public-school system. A mother of two grown boys, she has spent countless hours volunteering at crew competitions, soccer games, and the East BayAgency for Children Auxiliary (EBAC.org). In her rare downtime, you’ll find Lisa reading, hiking some of her favorite East Bay Park Trails, and listing to vinyl records with her husband over a great glass of wine like any good Napa-adjacent neighbor.
