Todd Dorman is currently Managing Broker and CEO/Founder of Dorman Real Estate Services, Inc., a Colorado Springs based real estate firm consisting of three divisions; Dorman Commercial, Inc., a brokerage firm concentrating on sales and leasing of retail and office properties, Dorman Management, Inc. which manages over 400 properties and Dorman Investments, Inc. which forms real estate group investments and acts as Asset Manager.
Mr. Dorman is a 3rd generation real estate professional, following in the footsteps of his mother and his grandfather. Todd first got into real estate in 1992 when he made his first real estate investment, a single–family rental home. A year later, he graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Iowa State University.
Upon graduation of college, he went to work for Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa as a software engineer. Mr. Dorman continued investing in real estate, owning at one time 36 rental units before he was 25. He was able to purchase these properties with creative terms in undesirable areas during a down market. After years of hard work managing and maintaining these properties, his investments finally paid off and he was able to perform 1031 tax exchanges into bigger and better properties. After deciding to exit the engineering field, he moved to Colorado Springs to start a new career.
Mr. Dorman obtained his Colorado real estate license in 1996 and worked for three different firms before opening his own in 2006. In 1997 he ventured into commercial real estate investing by pooling together investors in the purchase of 2.6 acres on Powers Blvd, just in time to enjoy the major real estate boom for this corridor. A year later he opened, as owner/operator, The Sand Pits Volleybar & Grill. He has since rebranded the restaurant to BooDad’s Beach House Grill and hired excellent managers allowing him to pursue his passion in real estate full time. Todd still regularly spends time and enjoys playing volleyball at BooDad's.
Mr. Dorman has enjoyed the success of creating multiple other real estate group investments and continually strives to expand on his expertise in the field of real estate investment, management and brokerage through organizations such as the CCIM Institute (Certified Commercial Investment Member – CCIM.com) and the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM.org).
Todd’s wife, Colleen, gave birth to their first child, Brayden, in October of 2004 and then again to their daughter, Allie, in July of 2007. One of Todd's favorite pastimes is coaching his son’s football, baseball and basketball teams and watch his daughter swim. Besides spending time with their young children, the Dorman's also enjoy the outdoor activities offered here in Colorado such as hiking, mountain biking, camping and skiing and also enjoy traveling to new areas.
