"They are always on top of any issues..."
Dawn Paragone, Property Owner

"...truly goes above and beyond."

"Dodson always does their best to help you..."
Kate Johnson, Tenant

I am a small, private home builder in Richmond, VA and through the years I have managed my own rental properties in-house. Thinking I was saving money, keeping an eye on things, I can do it better than the next guy is what I thought. After 15 years of managing lackluster in-house rental managers, (wife excluded) wasting time and money and having to babysit both ends, renters and managers, I finally saw the light. "Focus on what I'm good at," I said; building rentals and having the pros manage them. The phrase "hire my weakness" came to mind. I turned my entire rental portfolio over to Dodson January 1st, 2021. It has been the best thing I have done for that side of my business. I can now focus on completing my five new rentals on time and start on the next batch. With the new Covid and other laws changing minute by minute, I sleep a heck of a lot better, have my evenings and weekends back and I'm netting more profit. The Dodson crew have been great communicators; local folks with a list of repair people and the accounting I get every month. Whew, it's so much better than we would do in-house. They have certainly allowed the rental side of business to flourish which, in turn, allows me to build more rentals. I recommend Dodson - they have truly helped me to the next level and I can sleep easier at night knowing that they are on top of all the new laws, rules and regulations. Doesn't matter if you have one or 1500, as I know folks on both ends of the spectrum. They are there so you can focus on what you're good at. They're certainly great at managing my rentals! Thank you Chet, Michael, Lucy and Duke!
