Daryl Petsch's background as a Cornhusker, with degrees in architecture and business, his tour as a Captain in the United States Air Force, and his vast experience in real estate development prepared him in countless ways for his distinguished career in San Diego real estate. Along the way, he remodeled seven homes for fun (and profit) and designed, built and sold residential and office condominiums. Since 1988, he's specialized in helping San Diego home buyers find the perfect home and make it theirs.
"My parents were thrilled that a full basketball scholarship allowed all of us to enjoy my college education. Not fully grasping the time requirements involved, I decided to obtain a degree in architecture concurrently with playing basketball, which I'm told was a rare undertaking.
That doesn't even count Air Force ROTC, which also seemed like a good idea at the time. My wife wonders how I can work tirelessly to find the perfect homes for my buyer clients. this is how! The discipline I acquired all those years ago set the stage for the focus and commitment necessary to see my cherished home buyers through the process from concept to closing."
Seven highly intense years later, Daryl craved a new challenge, which resulted in four (also intense) years in the U.S. Air Force. Offut Air Force Base in Omaha, NE, was to be his home for the duration. He served as Base Maintenance Officer for all facilities and runways on base, which was Strategic Air Command Headquarters. "The fact that there were 20 Generals and 300 Full Bird Colonels on base meant that I basically walked around in a full salute 24/7. Now I serve my home buyers 24/7, but don't have to salute as often."
"For the past 28 years, my wife, Sara Driscoll, and I have teamed up to serve San Diego home buyers and sellers. Pretty much any agent can find a home for a buyer or a buyer for a home, but we always knew that we wanted more from the encounter, and so did the clients we represented. We treasure the relationships we form with our clients, and constantly strive to raise our customer service to new levels. One of our most important roles in the home sale process is to assist our clients in making decisions which will add to the quality of their lives. Whether this means buying or selling now or in the future, our primary focus is to help our clients determine the best course for their lives with respect to their real estate holdings."
Daryl is an Eagle Scout, a member of the Cornhusker Basketball Hall of Fame, the National Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors, and happily affiliated with Pacific Sotheby's International Realty. "When we learned the level of quality and care that embodies the Sotheby's brand, we knew we could take our service to yet another level."
