Loraine Hester Dyson has been a licensed California Real Estate Broker for over four decades. As the daughter of Mid-Century award winning Architect, Henry Hartwell Hester, AIA, she grew up crawling on blue prints. Loraine's affinity for architecture led to majoring in Environmental Design/Art History at UCSD before beginning her real estate career in her birth town of La Jolla in the mid 1970's. In her late 20's, she was drawn to North San Diego County and the coastal architecture which ranged from wood and glass designs to Mediterranean mansions dotting the hillsides overlooking the ocean.
In 1988, Loraine with her real estate visionary husband of 32 years, Bob Dyson, opened Dyson & Dyson Real Estate, and built it from a small office in Del Mar to a regional company which represented clients from over thirty offices throughout the Southwest including San Diego County, Newport Beach, Palm Desert and Las Vegas. After the sale of two of the four company divisions, the Dyson’s focus shifted to real estate land developments, investment properties and new venture entities.
Loraine’s continued love of residential real estate and her desire to serve the local agent and client community one-on-one, led her full circle to establish, once again, an independent real estate brokerage firm, Wisdom Properties.
Loraine has contributed to the real estate industry consistently over the years, serving on the Association of Realtors Board of Directors, supervising Broker to thousands of agents, real estate marketing director, author of real estate books and training videos, host of real estate TV shows, founder of the Dyson & Dyson Charitable Foundation, inspirational speaker throughout the Southwest, and recipient of numerous awards from the Association of Realtors and local chapters of Soroptimists and National Charity League.
