Dan DeVille

CEO

Our CEO was blessed to grow up in a military family with military values. He understood from a young age the importance of hard work and commitment to something bigger than himself. His father was a senior airman during Vietnam. Both of his grandfathers served in the army during WWII. In fact, he can trace his family’s military service back to Napoleon. After his father's military service, he went into Real Estate, where he was quickly promoted through the ranks to spend 35 years as an executive at Coldwell Banker. He started a title company, a rental business, a residential construction company, a flipping business…let’s just say real estate entrepreneurship runs in the family.


​​​​​​​In his early career, Daniel launched and ran large consumer brands, some that you likely know. For a season, he dabbled as a leader in Global 100 and Fortune 500 companies before the start-up bug would bite again. Sentry Residential grew out of an immense passion for serving those who have served. This is a core part of the military-first real estate brokerage that Daniel owned with co-founder Mike Chiesl. In running one of the nation's top real estate teams together, they realized that military members and vets across the country deserved to be consistently protected and served in their real estate needs.

Rita Terry


Agent Success Manager
CalBRE #02043870


Coming from an Emergency Medical background, real estate was a natural career change for her. There is a saying in EMS, "Treat your patients like they are your family members and you can't go wrong." The saying still holds true in real estate for me.

Rita is also a proud Navy wife that understands the hardships of moving every three years and making new friends just as often. She believes both experiences have contributed to her successful business practices. She gives each of my clients the time and patience you deserve while making sure the home buying or selling process runs smoothly. Rita takes great pride in keeping stressful situations under control and provide open communication for all parties along the way. She is an advocate for our clients and will always have your best interests in mind throughout each transaction.

She looks forward to working with you and she knows we will have a great relationship well beyond your transaction.

Joe McIntosh


Realtor Partner/Navy Vet
CalBRE #02066262


Joe got out of the Navy in 2017 and attempted to become a Mortgage Loan Officer, alongside his wife, but he saw his current circle of friends and associates and decided to become a realtor partner. He knew it would be better to serve active duty/veterans from the real estate side of housing, rather than the lending side. Thus giving him the privilege to really bond, mentor, teach, serve, and guide his clients.

Joe was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. The summer of 2007, Joe met his wife Christy in Ocean Beach, San Diego. On October of 2010 Joe and Christy got married and have been blessed with two children, Isaiah and McKenzie. They are his reasons “Why” and the GREATEST gifts they could ever receive in life!

Isaiah was born on February 3, 2012, and diagnosed with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) and passed on May 9, 2012. Isaiah taught Joe and his wife how to have strength teaching them to smile through adversity! Most importantly, he taught them to slow down because tomorrow isn’t promised. Joe and his with wife carry this passion to serve all those they come across!

Five years later, God blessed them with a daughter McKenzie. She was born on January 24, 2017. Currently one of her favorites thing to do is to blow bubbles or anything that has to do with bubbles really. When her face lights up with that big beautiful smile or hearing her laugh, they know everything they are doing is right!
