Diane Goldman Kemper (born 1946) is an American real estate investor and billionaire.[1]


Kemper was born in 1946[2] to a Jewish family, the daughter of Lillian (née Schuman) and Sol Goldman.[3][4] She has three siblings: Allan H. Goldman, Jane Goldman, and Amy Goldman Fowler.[5] Her father was the largest non-institutional real estate investor in New York City in the 1980s, owning a portfolio of nearly 1900 commercial and residential properties.[5] After her father's death, she and her two sisters engaged in litigation with their mother over his assets; their mother subsequently received 1/3rd of their father's estate.[6] Her siblings, Allan Goldman and Jane Goldman, manage the remaining real estate assets via the firm Solil Management.[7] Her cousin, Lloyd Goldman, is also a notable real-estate investor in New York City.[8]

In 1971, she married attorney Kenneth D. Kemper in a Jewish ceremony in Manhattan.[9]
