At Dodson Companies, we believe in the relentless betterment of people, property, and community. We do that through our various real estate divisions, which began in 2007 as a property management company dedicated to the needs of investor owners and tenants. Today, we serve single-family residential, multi-family residential, and commercial clients with management of the day-to-day demands of property ownership and leasing requirements. And we handle everyday tenant needs and maintenance issues. 

Over the years, Dodson has expanded beyond Virginia with divisions that include Association Management, Portfolio Management, Commercial Management, Maintenance, and Development. The Dodson team has dedicated specialists, advanced processes, and streamlined technologies to skillfully serve and preserve real estate value throughout the region.

Beyond our work, however, we believe in improving the lives of our people and those in the communities we serve.


The relentless betterment of people, property, and community.

Brightest Doers.

We are always trying to hire the smartest and brightest. Bright could be a smile or an idea, but you know it when you see it.

It doesn’t get much better than working with people you love, especially when they’re smarter than you are.

Trust is essential to our relationships with each other, our tenants, and our owners. We seek and foster trust in everything we do.

It takes a lot to trust someone when it comes to providing housing. I know that our team gets it and I can count on them to deliver when I need them.
