Darcy Byrnes

Chief Operating Officer


Darcy is a Southern California native, born and raised in Newbury Park. Because she eagerly jumped into real estate at a young age, she now has more than 15 years of experience in the field, with a brief hiatus in her 20's to study architecture in Los Angeles. Darcy is a natural problem solver, and uses an extremely systematized approach to providing top notch customer service for local home buyers and sellers. Her dream is to create a consistently amazing experience for every client, regardless of price range, background, or complexity. She works closely with all of the agents and staff on Team Szakos to nourish every detail of the process, from marketing, to client appreciation, to negotiation strategies. She has also played a large part in creatively connecting home buyers with off market and upcoming homes, which is one of many benefits that sets Team Szakos apart from other real estate companies. Darcy enjoys attending several training events per year to gain further, valuable education about real estate and leadership. She is a lifelong learner who will continue to apply all of her findings to create a more exceptional experience each day at Team Szakos!

With a background in sales, marketing, advertising and business development, he knows what it takes to get the job done for his clients while keeping their interests at heart. After years of success within the "corporate world", Brandon transitioned into real estate because he noticed a gap in what real estate agents provided.

Emily Rodriguez

Executive Assistant


Emily was born and raised in the central valley of California in a small town called Kingsburg. After years of moving around the state, Emily and her husband have decided to settle down with their pup, Rocket, in the city of Ventura. Emily has always been fascinated by real estate and home design. At a young age, she knew that real estate was a dream of hers. She previously worked in Healthcare for 3 years as a Health Information Management Technician, where she was able to help people in their time of need. While she was successful in the healthcare industry, she realized it was time to pursue her own dreams. She was wary to leave the kind and familiar nature of healthcare to come into a world that she knew little about. But, after learning about Team Szakos’ mission, vision and goals, she knew this was a place she would be proud to work at! Emily’s creative and organized nature makes her a great marketing and administrative assistant. She joined Team Szakos because of their willingness to serve and better the community of Ventura. She believes Team Szakos will make a positive impact on all home buyers in Ventura, and she is thrilled to be a part of it.

Team Szakos supports the Best Day Foundation, a local group of volunteers who help children with special needs build confidence and self-esteem through safe, fun, adventure activities like surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking, snow sports and more. Right now, there are kids who are unable to participate in these activities due to a lack of funding. We have committed a substantial portion of our commission from every closed referral transaction to be donated to the Best Day Foundation. Visit to find out how you can help, at no cost to you!
