Rancho Bernardo Real Estate
Rancho Bernardo is located about 10 minutes from the San Diego airport, just off the I-15 corridor. The area is part of the city of San Diego, and is actually a grouping of planned neighborhoods and shopping. It is commonly referred to as "RB" by locals and offers its own unique ambience and features.

The first residents of the area were Indian bands who left evidence behind of their daily lives in the hollows that they used to grind corn and acorns. One can still see the trail they walked on which led then to the ocean. The conquistadors followed. They came in search of riches and the padres who cultivated grapes and cattle in the hills and valleys. The King of Spain made the original land grant in 1789, and dubbed the land "La Canada de San Bernardo. It was for a total of 17,763 acres of land. The name Rancho Bernardo probably comes from St. Bernard of Clairvaux, a priest who led the Second Crusade.

The area of Bernardo can be seen on maps as early as the year 1800. Captain Joseph Snook, an English seafarer who settled in California and became known as Don Jose Francisco Snook. Snook's property was the site of the Battle of San Pasqual. Pio Pico's troops ambushed General Kearny's troops on the site as Kearny's troops retreated south towards San Diego. The American troops were held down for three days and were rescued when Kit Carson arrived in San Diego.

The village of Bernardo was served by the Butterfield Stage Coach and served as a stopping point along the San Diego to Escondido route. The area that is now known as Rancho Bernardo has been associated with several prominent San Diego residents-Col. Ed Fletcher, James McCoy, William Henshaw and Donald and Lawrence Daley.

Donald and Lawrence Daly formed Rancho Bernardo, Inc. in 1961; several years after that they sold the property to AVCO Community Developers. The developed and planned communities of Rancho Bernardo were created by AVCO. Rancho Bernardo features residential areas, shopping, light industry, clubs and golf courses and greenbelts.
