In 2007, Virginia native Duke Dodson founded Dodson Property Management because he believed there needed to be a better way to manage real estate.
Since then, Duke and his team grew the organization into one of the mid-Atlantic’s largest and most reputable residential and commercial property management companies, overseeing 5,500 residential units, 2.5 million square feet of commercial space, and over 14,000 HOA doors.
In 2022, Dodson divested its single family, HOA, and its multi-family divisions to re-focus its energies on transforming neighborhoods.
Transforming neighborhoods has always been at the core of what we do at Dodson Companies — we rehabilitate the real estate of our own hometowns and conceptualize and establish small businesses and residential areas. Ultimately, infusing vitality, building community, and creating real estate with a higher purpose. Our work can be found all over Richmond, including in the Central Business District, Fan District, and Scott’s Addition. We are currently rehabilitating four parcels of real estate in Colonial Beach, Virginia, the largest redevelopment project in the area in over 125 years.
Dodson Companies currently comprises real estate divisions Dodson Development Group, Dodson Commercial, and Mainstay Short Term Rentals; food and beverage businesses Drift, Muse, and Circa 1892; and small businesses Graybo’s Sports Cards and CoBe Workspaces.
