Three people who have decades of experience in the commercial real estate industry have formed CDM Real Estate Services, located at 3035 99th St. in Urbandale.
The partners in the business are Jesse Caston, Chris Dawson and Rob Myers. Caston was previously with Terrus Real Estate Group; Dawson was with Caliber Property Management; and Myers was with Angle Realty.
“We started the company to have a small group of like-minded people who want to collaborate and do more than brokerage and represent buyers and sellers,” Dawson said. “We also want to have the opportunity to develop.”
The group also wants to expand its reach outside of central Iowa. Caston is located in Burlington and serves southern and southeastern Iowa.
The band chose the name for several reasons: CDM stands for the first letter of each of their last names – Caston, Dawson, Myers. It is also the first letter of each of the services offered by the company: Commercial representation; development; and management services.
