RICHMOND, Va. (January 5, 2022) — Dodson Companies announced today the acquisition of Berkeley Realty Property Management Inc. of Williamsburg, Va. The company, owned by Pam Blank and Ed Robbins, has been a leading property manager in greater Williamsburg for over 40 years.
The transition for Berkeley’s single-family owners, residents, and homeowner associations will be seamless, as the Berkeley team joins Dodson and maintains all existing operations. Berkeley employees, residents and owners, and association leaders will also gain new technologies and access to highly skilled management experts with Dodson. The acquisition includes 61 homeowner associations, totaling 6,530 units (a mix of condominiums and houses), as well as 470 single-family units.
The deal marks Dodson’s 11th acquisition of property management companies in recent years and fourth in the association management space. In November, Dodson acquired Patriot Properties Inc. of Landsdowne, Va. and Plum Street Partners in Petersburg.
Duke Dodson, Dodson Founder and CEO:
“Berkeley is the established and respected leader for single-family and HOA management in the greater Williamsburg region. This is an enormous opportunity for our team to partner with Berkeley as Pam and Ed transition to retirement and new ventures. We have bought the best property and association manager in Williamsburg and we look forward to keeping it going and growing.”
Tim Wehner, Dodson VP of Single-Family, Portfolio, and Association Management:
“We have worked with Berkeley for many years and respect and admire their operation and team culture, which very much aligns to our own. Combining with the Berkeley team gives us a new base of growth in the Peninsula and furthers our expansion plans across Virginia."
Pam Blank, Berkeley President:
“Most important for us was ensuring not only continuous operations, but that our team would remain in place and that we would maintain our longstanding relationships with owners and residents. We have built so much trust with the Dodson people over the years and know this move is the right one for all of us at Berkeley Realty Property Management."
Dodson manages 5,700 single-family homes and apartments in Central and Northern Virginia and in the Peninsula. The Association Management division oversees 14,560 units in Virginia and Florida. Dodson Commercial has 2.3 million square feet under management.
