Dawson is a buyer agent with The Van Pelt Team. Dawson meets with his clients to create a personalized plan of action for their home search, and constantly watches the market to find the perfect home for your needs. He uses his skills as a negotiator to get you the best possible price.
Dawson has been groomed in the arts of real estate since a young age. Dawson and Luke use to dress up like real estate agents when kids and try to help Win at work. Anything that involved selling and business the Van Pelt twins would try: lemonade stands, cookie stands or “investing” in sports cards. Out of high school Dawson started selling jeans at a Lucky Brand Jean store, where he was consistently recognized for being one of the top sales people in the region. Dawson started a clothing company in 2009 and with the help of Luke has just about doubled the sales every year.
Dawson is excited to join his dad Win in the real estate business as a buyer agent. So far he has enjoyed the relationships cultivated during the process of helping buyers and finding them a home that will fulfill their need
