Dickson Commercial Group Celebrates Fifth Anniversary

Dickson Commercial Group Celebrates Fifth Anniversary

Dickson Commercial Group, a full service commercial real estate firm providing brokerage, property management, investment and consulting services, commemorates its five year corporate anniversary. 

DCG was formed in 2014 by friends and industry leaders, Scott Shanks, SIOR, Dominic Brunetti, CCIM, Tom Fennell, CCIM and Harvey Fennell with the intent to create a company and culture that not only values long term client and community relationships, but also an extremely collaborative company environment. 

“We wanted to create an organization that provides the support and branding of a national firm, with the structure and split levels that are much more attractive for brokers,” said Scott Shanks. “This middle ground between the nationals and traditionally smaller boutique firms works well in our market and has allowed for success and growth of many of our team members.”

 The formation was started with the purchase and renovation of the current offices in Downtown Reno at 333 Holcomb Avenue. The core group of agents was under 10 brokers including the four partners that formed the company in 2014. The team offers expertise in real estate services for office, industrial, retail, multi-family, land, investment, property management and multi-family management; with agents and staff accredited through the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) and Certified Commercial Investment Members (CCIM). As part of its anniversary celebration, DCG is dedicating the company’s growth to their committed staff, brokers and loyal clients. 

Within months of the start of DCG, there was growth of quality team members, including: 

Joel Fountain – Lead Industrial Broker

“The DCG culture is truly unique. Though we are all working within separate niche areas of the market, at the end of the day you always feel you are working as a larger team. Each broker is willing to spend a little extra time out of their day to help one another, which I feel is a big part of the company’s success in being one of the top commercial firms in northern Nevada in just five years.”

Travis Hansen, CCIM 

“Congratulations to the partners and team on the five year anniversary of forming and successfully operating Dickson Commercial Group. The team culture, support services team, and the group of talented and experienced brokers assembled makes me proud to work here, and I certainly enjoy coming to work every day.”

Trevor Richardson – Multifamily

“Dickson Commercial Group has been a joy to be a part of. The support and environment have led to a very exciting working culture where we can focus our energy on our clients and adding our small part in making Reno a better city.”
