Something about us.

My name is Daniel Stiel, and I’ve been a licensed Real Estate Broker since 2010 (California DRE # 01886935).

I wasn’t born in Orange County… my parents actually moved here from New York City in 1962.

I attended locals schools from elementary through high school. I ventured north to attend and graduate from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business.

In addition to being a licensed Real Estate Broker who grew up in Orange County surfing, riding horses on the beach south of Corona del Mar, racing dirt bikes at Saddleback Park, and experiencing the transformation of Orange County from dairy and cattle ranching and endless fields of farming into what is certainly one of the best places on the planet to live, I’ve grown to know the heart of our local communities and what makes each of them very special.
