Meet Our Team

Work Happy

10 years ago, did you even know being a “property manager” was a career or even think about it being a job that could make a difference? Well, neither did we. That’s why, when we started Dodson Property Management in 2007, we weren’t just looking to make a few dollars, we set out on a mission to transform.

The opportunity to have a massive impact on an entire industry doesn’t come along all that often for us “everyday” folks. But, at Dodson Property Management, that’s exactly what we’re doing. Our vision of impacting the lives of 500,000 people by 2025 seems lofty and vague, until you realize that it’s not just words, it’s a way of life.

Positively impacting lives isn’t the easiest task in this business, just Google, “Issues with my landlord” OR “What’s wrong with my tenants?”... it makes for some funny reading, but also spells out a problem with the housing dynamic in our region.

We’re here to change the narrative that landlords and tenants must be at odds with each other. We’re doing that by hiring the brightest, most innovative people we can find and cultivating a team that not only cares about their job, but cares about the people around them. We may have to “eat a frog” or “get over ourselves” every now and again, but it’s worth it.

We welcome those driven to better themselves and those around them, courageous enough to trust themselves to create comfortable living experiences empathetic to our clients and tenants’ needs, and honorable enough to hold themselves accountable. In fact, team members support those qualities in each other through the recognition of awarding our coveted Ducat.

We are regularly hiring property managers, maintenance technicians and leasing agents across the properties we service. You can view currently available positions for these roles on Indeed at:
