Daniel was blessed to grow up in a military family with military values.  With his father a Vietnam Air Force Veteran, he understood from a young age the importance of hard work, and commitment to something bigger than himself.  After his father's military service, he went into Real Estate, where he spent 35 years as an executive, eventually at Coldwell Banker.  In his early career, Daniel launched or 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.

ANDY PIEDRA - VP of Agent Success
US Air Force (Vet.)

Andy comes to Sentry Residential after serving in the United States Air Force on active duty for eight years and a follow-on career as a Federal Employee for the Department of Defense for another decade. With multiple deployments to the Middle East and Central Asia, Andy returned and commenced a career in Real Estate in 2008. Andy is a graduate of Indiana University and the American Military University with a Bachelors in Business Management, an MBA and a MA in Slavic Languages. Andy bootstrapped his own brokerage, the Veterans Realty Group, in the Washington, D.C. area, which consisted primarily of Military Veteran and Spouse real estate agents, a clear mirror image to Sentry’s values and model, thus the two firms merged in early 2020. Andy Piedra is honored and excited to take on the responsibility of marching with a team of like-minded professionals to revolutionize the real estate experience for our military and their families.
