Though this isn’t Lynch’s first real estate rodeo. A lawyer, she specializes in real estate law. Also another of his business ventures, Lynch Land Holdings, LLC is developing new properties in the city of Atlanta. But her main goal is not just to acquire wealth for herself, she inspires the black community to take more ownership. As a developer for Tempat Sala, she focused on garnering her first wave of investment from black professionals. These people were colleagues or friends and family members who also fell in love with Samaná, in the Dominican Republic.

The Samaná Peninsula is at the northeast tip of the Dominican Republic and extends into the Atlantic Ocean. Samaná has always been known for its uninhabited white sand beaches and mountainous landscape. Diana Lynch’s Tempat Sala Group has purchased over 600 acres of land in this beautiful area of ​​the Dominican Republic to build their resort. What makes this acquisition even more special is that the land was once inhabited by African slaves. Purchasing the land is as symbolic as it is profitable, but it also changes the perception of purchasing power in the African-American community.
