Dillon Checkal

Founder/Owner: Checkal Real Estate and Development Inc


As the founder and owner of Checkal Real Estate and Development Inc., Dillon Checkal relies on his focused education, professional experience and his long family history in the real estate industry, to run a successful real estate business.

Checkal Real Estate and Development is a boutique real estate brokerage based in San Diego, California that offers extremely personalized and knowledgeable service to buyers, sellers and investors throughout southern California. Established in 2016, the company is a collaborative family effort.  In addition to a team of experienced agents, Dillon works alongside his mother Michelle, who has 25 years of industry experience, his sister, who handles all of the social media and he also partners with his father’s construction firm to offer clients referrals for contractors or any other building related needs.

Dillon graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of San Diego, where he double majored in real estate and marketing.  After graduating from college, he interned for the San Diego Padres, doing statistical analysis, but he knew that he wanted to change his career focus. He worked as a project manager for Checkal Construction, his father’s construction business and then got his broker license and began focusing more of his attention on real estate. Building on his own aspirations and his family’s years of experience in the industry, he founded his own firm, Checkal Real Estate and Development.  In their first year of business, the firm sold about $7 million in real estate and three years later they have almost doubled that figure – doing about $13.5 million in sales.  The team at Checkal Real Estate builds strong relationships with their clients and offers valuable knowledge of the real estate industry in the San Diego area.

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Dillon is very involved with his community. He sponsors the local little league team he grew up playing at and has recently become involved with the Hope Sports organization, which focuses on helping athletes reach peak performance by reestablishing their identity as individuals.  He has also partnered with the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station, an organization that helps veterans in the San Diego area and will be helping with the Patriots Half marathon coming for the first time in November 2019.
