We Care Deeply
About Our

We Don't Just Make Housing, We Make Homes

Dawson Holdings is more than a real estate development company. We are a provider of “apartment homes” in an arena that has nearly unlimited demand and a severe shortage of supply. We strive to make our places “homes” for the people who choose to live here, not just apartments. We do not believe that paying less should mean getting less, and strive to make our communities as good as, or better than our market-rate competitors. One of the greatest compliments we hear all the time from applicants is that “I had no idea this place was low income housing when I was driving by.”

We also work very hard to make these assets economically viable for our partners. Through a combination of green technologies for utility savings, efficient operations, and quality experienced personnel, we make the most out of the opportunities that present themselves. Our commitment to the properties goes beyond the initial acquisition and means that we stay engaged in these assets, and spend real time and energy getting out to them regularly. In doing so, we are able to develop strong relationships with our on-site personnel and set high expectations that lead to long term success, and stability on which our partners can rely.
