Dorset Realty Group was founded by Ron Schuss in 1975, but the passion that continues to fuel it today was sparked much earlier.
While working towards his CGA designation at a national real estate investment firm in 1953, Ron was asked to collect rents at a nearby building. Though he wouldn't realize it at the time, this small errand would change Ron's life and mark the beginning of Dorset Realty Group.
Ron's newfound dedication and passion for the industry led to him through a number of real estate roles before finally opening the doors at Dorset Realty Group. Over the past 40 years, the company has grown into new areas of the business and the Lower Mainland while staying true to the principals that Ron and the Dorset Realty Group have always been known for.
40 years later, Dorset Realty Group is an industry leader, managing over 5 million square feet of commercial property, nearly 150 strata complexes and 79 residential rental buildings. Our Commercial Leasing and Sales Division combines to create a truly full service Brokerage, ensuring our clients have the best portfolio advice on hand and with just one visit.
Dorset Realty Group's years of experience, local industry knowledge and passion for the business are what set us apart. Our team of dedicated Property Managers, Agents, Administrators and Support Staff provide the high level of service we are known for. They provide leading edge solutions to clients and maintain a personal presence at every property, ensuring each property's success.
We are a local company made up of people who care about the communities we work and live in. We do our business the same way.
