Dale became a REALTOR licensed in Maryland in July 2002. After 11 years of real estate sales (and 5 years of residential property management), Dale opened DMS Properties, LLC ... Residential Property Management ... and that company has become a full-service Real Estate Brokerage Firm in Maryland. Our Company is now DMS Properties, LLC ... Residential Real Estate Services.
Dale is very familiar with all of the counties surrounding Washington DC, Baltimore and Southern Maryland, including Howard County, Anne Arundel County, Carroll County, Baltimore County, Harford County, and the Eastern Shore. The network of contractors and assistants that we have established allows us to work almost anywhere in Maryland.
He is still currently handling property management and real estate sales in many of the Counties in our territory, but as we bring on new Real Estate Agents, the role will transition more to Management and Supervision, as well as Real Estate Investments, managing the company's portfolio of properties and teaching others how to acquire a real estate portfolio and gain the most return on investment (ROI).
Many of the homes on the market now are distressed ... short sale and REO (bank foreclosure) properties, but there are also some relocation properties and, naturally, residential rental listings.
In addition to the listing and selling of these properties, he also helps to coordinate the maintenance of the properties and handles Property Preservation for the banks who own them. This also means, unfortunately, in some cases handling the evictions of tenants and/or owners.
Dale has personally handled seven evictions in the past four years (four of tenants and three of former owners) ... it is definitely the least enjoyable part of the job, but something that, unfortunately, needs to be done.
Dale is a member of the Southern Maryland Association of Realtors, the Maryland Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. We are also members in good standing of the Better Business Bureau, the Charles County Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Residential Property Managers.
DMS Properties, LLC ... Residential Real Estate Services is continuing the development of an investment group to purchase investment properties in Maryland. The plan is to assemble a group of like-minded individuals who are unable to purchase real estate on their own, pool those resources to purchase properties so that they can be turned into income-producing assets.
