Founder / Realtor®
Santa Rosa native Dan Dodd’s leadership has been making an indelible impact on his clients since 2004. While guiding them along the path toward emotional and financial enrichment, Dan can always be counted on for his reliability, persistence, and passion for Bay Area real estate.
Dan started his real estate career in Beverly Hills in 2004 and has been a top producer since his second year. He’s determined to offer services that his clients can truly rely on, and he provides them with honesty and directness. Dan’s business acumen within the real estate world is unique, and he’s always finding ways to ensure that his professional knowledge and skills remain fresh and relevant.
Before real estate, Dan had an illustrious corporate career, starting at a consumer electronics retailer, where he discovered his talent for sales in the all-commission environment. His peak performance led to subsequent promotions, which included launching markets; hiring, training, and motivating teams; and managing one of the highest volume and most challenging chain stores. With a career that took him down and back up the California coast, Dan thrived in a series of stressful, fast-paced, and demanding roles. He later joined Sprint as a business sales manager, and he was promoted from business sales manager to director of retail sales for Southern California. It was in this role that he eventually transformed what was the second-largest market in the country into the top performer nationwide.
Despite his corporate success, real estate has always been in the cards for Dan. He grew up with real estate in his blood, as his father owned a Santa Rosa-based real estate company, but it wasn’t until he reached his mid-30s that he realized it was his calling. Dan’s exceptional training, ability to defuse emotions and situations, strong business sense, tireless work ethic, and unrelenting positivity have all helped him become a powerhouse agent.
Dan has been married to his husband, Hiro, since 2016, and they live in San Francisco’s Twin Peaks neighborhood with their precious Cavapoo, Sophie. Dan loves reading, hiking, nature, traveling, cruises, meditation, wine, enjoying the city’s fantastic restaurants, and attending networking and motivational seminars throughout the year. An AIDS activist, Dan brought his love of cycling to the AIDS/LifeCycle charity ride from 2006-2014. He spent eight of those years helping people prepare for the 545-mile-long trip as a training ride leader. Dan also sits on the board of directors for the National AIDS Memorial and supports the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Special Olympics, and Project Open Hand.
