All In The Family

Chase Betta is the next generation of a family of real estate professionals dating back to the 70’s when his grandfather Vince DiMaggio syndicated his first building in the Grand Lake neighborhood of Oakland. Chase has worked for Vince for as long as he can remember, and grew up learning valuable business acumen from his parents Adam and Debbi at HIGHLAND PARTNERS. A Piedmont native and longtime Bay Area resident, Chase has a special understanding of the markets in and around the flagship brokerage of HIGHLAND PARTNERS. He graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor’s degree in Ethnic Studies and Communications, which he aims to use to further support his clients as they navigate the nuances of their own journey. Chase’s additional experience working for a commercial brokerage in Los Angeles adds to his already strong base of real estate fundamentals. 

Chase is back in the Bay after travelling throughout Asia before the pandemic. While in the Philippines, he worked at a freediving facility where he met and made new friends daily. In his pastime, Chase likes to travel and stay active. As his passion for lacrosse shows, Chase is a strong team player — he has always skillfully combined interpersonal communication, physical activity, and a drive towards a common goal. He is excited to bring this tenacity to HIGHLAND PARTNERS and looks forward to meeting you!

Adam and I could not be more thrilled to welcome Chase into the family business and the DiMaggio & Betta Group.

Lessons Learned: Magnified

will to succeed




friends & teammates  ( my boys! )

The Piedmont High School JV Highlanders Football Season was one of celebration and lessons learned.  Of course, it would have been wonderful if the team won all of their games, however, the experience of their few losses allowed them to learn so much more.  Although I am not very knowledgeable about football, it was much easier for me to follow along then I thought.  Not only having my son’s bright shoes as a reference point, but knowing his friends on the field allowed me to understand more easily.  A proud mother, of 45 football players, I’d say.  I reveled in each game as I witnessed their quick moves, timely plays, amazing interceptions, awe inspiring completions, and knock down tackles.  As in life, lessons learned can be used in the future, whether in business or social, as an individual, or as a team… if you allow them.


Just as an actor may draw upon his or her emotions and past experiences to deliver a magnificent performance, these athletes will draw from this season… lessons of a lifetime.


applaud teammates


learn from your mistakes


leaders are not always right




the agony of defeat


false starts








re group


laser focus




the struggle makes you stronger, tougher, better






never give up: persist and perservere


thrill of victory


working together creates a more successful result


outcomes can change with the blink of an eye


never stop giving it your all


it’s never over ‘til it’s over




emotional swing






encourage your teammates






there is no substitute for preparation and hard work


show up




playbook is still unwritten




See you in the bleachers next year!


XOXO! Debbi
