COMPANY HISTORY

SERVING LOCAL COMMUNITIES SINCE 1978

Action was founded in October of 1978 by Jim Utterback. The franchised office started small, with only a handful of agents in a rambling office on Redondo Avenue in Long Beach, CA. Action quickly grew to 150 agents in the following years and has since exceeded a base of 200 agents at its current location on Temple Avenue. Action has always been based in Long Beach, California. The firm has deep ties to our local community and has created jobs for thousands of people since its founding in 1978.

THE FOUNDER

AN INDUSTRY ICON

Action! was founded by Jim Utterback in 1978. Jim was 50 years old at the time, and had spent 30 years in corporate sales and sales management. When Jim approached the real estate industry, he brought a no nonsense management style and unparalleled focus; and what he saw was an industry that was largely ungoverned, and lacking in standards for training and professionalism. 

He and his staff began to develop systems for agents to become more successful. His methods worked so well, that he added a real estate school to expedite the licensing process and to better prepare students for their new careers. The systems Jim developed worked better and faster than those in any other real estate office; and as a result, his office saw explosive growth. Jim developed many of the value added services that are common to the real estate industry today. He has been an innovator in his industry.

 

THE PROTEGE

A LIFELONG PURSUIT TO MAKING JIM PROUD

Daryl’s foray into the industry came in 2005. Though he earned his license with the intention of focusing on his own investments, he had the fortune of working with highly respected real estate veteran Jim Utterback, who mentored Daryl with tremendous generosity. “I attribute much of my success to Jim’s guidance,” reveals Daryl. “He taught me to operate with mental strength and clarity, to maintain focus on my objectives and goals.” This positive outlook, Daryl adds, is a great way to operate beyond professional endeavors. “Every day I keep moving,” he offers. “I believe that we have the power to achieve, and I work to make that power a reality.”

Daryl is all about energy and the power of a positive outlook. As the Founder and CEO of Nationwide Real Estate Executives, he has cultivated success by focusing his efforts on identifying the needs of a changing real estate marketplace, then implementing systems and solutions designed to consistently meet those needs. Combining business prowess with strong analytical skills and field experience, Daryl has developed a franchise-ready business that he says can help elevate real estate agents to new levels of success.

Nationwide Real Estate Executives has grown to over 800+ sales associates,
and has been ranked by INC 500 as the #1 fastest growing real estate brokerage in California with close to a billion on annual sales.
