Sara Driscoll decided on a career in real estate when she bought her first home at the unlikely age of 19. Her agent guided Sara patiently through the confusing process and more than earned her fee on the modest $23,000 sale. Sara understood at a very personal level that the key to true success in the real estate industry was caring sincerely about her clients' needs. "Although it would be seven years before I would enter the real estate profession, that vision remained vivid and has shaped my attitude for the past 32 years."
After 4 years in Denver real estate, Sara Driscoll and her husband and partner, Daryl Petsch, arrived in San Diego in 1988 with only a single acquaintance in the county. With that as a starting point from which to build a career in real estate sales, Sara & Daryl focused on serving each client as though they were their only priority. It was that level of responsiveness and personal attention which has resulted in a thriving business of repeat clients and referrals totalling 88% of their sales volume.
Success can be summed up in this way for Sara & Daryl, "More than 1,100 home sales have taught us what's really important in the real estate business. Our measure of success is how our clients feel about the end result and their experience with us from start to finish."
Cultivating client loyalty made the long hours worthwhile, as they carved out their niche in the real estate world. Challenges occur daily in a real estate transaction, today more than ever before. "Even after 32 full-time years of experience, first in Denver and since in San Diego, we still encounter unique situations at some point in every sale. Anticipating the bumps and having the insight to provide inspired solutions is what sets the typical licensee apart from the seasoned real estate professional. That skill, along with our personal attention to each client's every concern is what keeps them coming back to us and referring their friends."
Daryl works exclusively with their buyer clients, and is devoted to providing a level of care and attention seldom found. "Almost 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."
Sara served on the Professional Standards Committee of the San Diego Association of Realtors for 11 years, is a member of the Sandicor Rules Committee, National Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors, and is a past board member of the Rancho Bernardo Senior Services. Now happily affiliated with Pacific Sotheby's International Realty, Sara and Daryl are committed to taking their service to yet another level, by leveraging the superb quality and standards of excellence which embody the Sotheby's brand to further benefit their clients.
