Testimonials and Reviews from Contractors and Colleagues in Anaheim, Orange and Newport Beach
"Over the past several years, I have worked closely with Jim of Diamond Touch Strategies on at least a dozen critical and time-sensitive projects. During this period, I have repeatedly been impressed by how quickly Jim is able to size up a difficult problem, assemble the right details and personnel, and then lead that team to complete the project in an efficient and timely manner. One quickly starts to see why Jim is so effective. He is tough, but his reputation for treating people fairly and with dignity attracts and retains leading experts. His high ethical standards mean his word is his bond, and his clear sense of his duty leads him to advocate for his clients' interests as he would his own. I highly regard and highly recommend Jim and Diamond Touch Strategies to anyone who might be considering DTS's unique expertise as part of their company’s success plan."

- Paddy Drumm, CEO of Emerald Enterprises Construction Consulting
"For almost fifty years, James Diaz has been a dependable friend. Jim has always been honest, motivated, intelligent, competent, and combines these traits with excellent judgment. Over the years, Jim grew his knowledge base with years of business, legal, and group experience, from his years with the Marine Corp and then through many years of property management, related construction and litigation. I strongly recommend him."
- Jamie R. Schloss, Esq.
"I have known Jim Diaz for approximately 20+ years. Aside from a stellar military career, he is an honest, caring person. I could use lots and lots of platitudes to describe him but I think a short story would be more helpful. We have a mutual friend who was going through a terrible time in her personal and business life – everything was going wrong and she was a wreck. Jim was scheduled to go on a short cruise and, without batting an eye (or telling anyone), rearranged the cruise so she could go and have a respite from everything. He arranged for everything and there was never any discussion of repayment, it was done from the heart. Over the years I have seen him perform these "random acts of kindness" and it has been done purely out of the goodness of his heart and character. He is an honest communicator and that has carried over into every facet of his life, including business. He has been a good friend and we consider him and his family as part of our extended family. I don’t believe you could find a better, more honest partner than Jim. When he gives his word believe me he keeps it. Not to mention that we adore him and he has great stories to tell."
- Clancy Johannsen, MLIS, Broker, Professional Liability
"Jim Diaz is very articulate and has a passion to do things the right way. He attempts to understand the science of any field that he gets involved with because he wants to get things done correctly. Jim is also a very loyal person with high integrity; he does what he says."
- Vinh Q. Pham, Vice President of Operations at ENVIROCHECK
"It was a pleasure working with Jim for 8+ years while he was at Park Newport. We partnered closely to provide custodial staffing and a couple years into our working relationship we were asked to expand to staff/provide his team of maintenance mechanics. Jim was and always is very professional and extremely honest. "
