Hillcrest Investment Group, commonly referred to as Hillcrest Apartments, is a Mission Revival style apartment building constructed in 1926. It was acquired by the current owners in 1984.
Diane is the remaining original owner of Hillcrest Apartments since 1984. At the time of acquisition, the property owners consisted of Diane, her former husband, an architect, and several investors. The 1926 building underwent significant renovations in the 80s and 2010s to modernize the apartments, making them safer and energy efficient, while seeking to maintain as much original character as possible. In 2001, Diane became the majority owner. She has worked as a registered nurse in Oakland for over 30 years, and lives locally with her husband Bruce, two dogs, and a cat.
