“All of the internet resources available today still can’t beat having a personal representative like Jason E. Dodd to guide you through the home buying process. We purchased our home in Norfolk while still living in California and Jason made the process as painless as possible. While we had selected a number of homes to consider drawn from Zillow and other internet resources, some of our top choices were sold before we could tour them. Based on our selections, Jason was able to get a great idea of what we were looking for and added another home that we would not have previously considered – the perfect home for our family and the one that we chose. His expertise and personal attention made our first-time home buying experience as pleasant as possible. He also assisted us with referrals to home improvement, painting, carpet and move-in house cleaning specialists. If you are looking for a Hampton Roads area Realtor, you can’t go wrong with Jason E. Dodd!” Andrew and Naomi Hochhaus Lochhaven, Norfolk, Virginia

“SOLD! Jason E. Dodd’s results speak for themselves! We got the sales price we needed within seven days of being on the market! Jason’s advice was on-target every step of the way, from preparing to sell, handling showings, contract negotiations, home inspection repairs, all the way to the closing date. He was prepared for every circumstance and valued our property like it was his own. I wholeheartedly recommend that you let Jason E. Dodd help you with your real estate needs.”

Mark Olson Lochhaven, Norfolk, VA


“There’s definitely a reason Jason E. Dodd is number one in Norfolk for Real Estate sales.He is straightforward and ALWAYS willing to do everything in his power to help make the home buying process as easy as possible! As a military member with no control over my own schedule, Jason was flexible and easily managed the difficult flow of events. Many times other real estate agents can waste time and efforts in the wrong direction. Jason E. Dodd is literally the only agent in Norfolk I would recommend working with. Thank you for all your hard work and help, Jason! I genuinely appreciate everything you’ve done to help me out!”

Aaron Cottle, USN Norfolk, Va.

“My husband and I have purchased/sold several homes together and this was BY FAR the best experience we’ve had. It was an absolute pleasure working with Jason E. Dodd. We were out of town buyers and Jason handled everything for us. He even took time out of his busy day to go to a couple of houses we saw online and send pictures and videos to us. We were most impressed with his responsiveness…he always answered our phone calls and responded promptly to our emails. He advised us knowledgeably and honestly. He made us feel like we were his only clients! Being an out of town buyer is nerve wracking and difficult but we had complete confidence in Jason and we’re now living in a house and neighborhood that we LOVE. We will most definitely use Jason in the future. Jason, thank you so much for your hard work and for taking care of us! “

I would highly recommend Jason E. Dodd to anyone looking to purchase/sell their home. I was very impressed with how well Jason categorized the properties to show me based off of the criteria I gave him. He did not waste my time as many real estate agents are known to do. He is honest and gives hard facts. If you have any questions/concerns Jason will give you a very quick response. Even after closing Jason E. Dodd is still willing to assist you. As a young military officer and a first time home buyer I expected the buying process to be overwhelming. Jason E. Dodd assisted me in all aspects of the buying process. This simplified the process. Thanks again!!

Alex Levy, USN Virginia Beach, Virginia

As a four year resident of the Norfolk/Va Beach area, my wife and I hadsettled on purchasing our first home in the Larchmont neighborhood of Norfolk. As a first time home buyer I expected the process of purchasing a home to be overwhelming. Not with Jason E. Dodd. He guided us through every step of the process. Not only did he make the process fun but also immensely educational. Now, my wife and I are in the home of our dreams in the exact neighborhood we wanted and it’s all thanks to Jason’s tireless work ethic. I will enthusiastically refer Jason to anyone in the market for a new home or in need of a listing agent. “

Lt. Ben Alsup, USN Larchmont, Norfolk


“Jason E. Dodd made this painful process so easy on me I would do it again. He did a great job considering I’m in the military, I have no family in the area, and I’m gone all the time!! This lifestyle makes buying a house nearly impossible but if there is some one that can make this happen, it is Jason E. Dodd . If real estate had special forces, Jason E. Dodd would definitely be one of them. It is as if he had special real estate powers or something like that. I must say I was impressed! Jason E. Dodd was extremely organized and understood that sometimes you can’t get a hold of us in the military, but Jason E. Dodd did! So Bravo Zulu for a job well done! I would definitely recommend him to any member of the military, or any civilians, who are looking to buy a home!”

Ricardo Sotomagdaleno, USN Virginia Beach, Va.

“I would like to thank Jason E. Dodd for our great house hunting experience. Finding our first house was quick and easy. He did not show us anything that was out of our price range nor sub par. We were able to find the perfect house and settle within two weeks. Since we are in the military and have hectic schedules with deployments, his flexibility in working with us was excellent. I would highly recommend Jason E. Dodd to any military family or anybody, for that matter, looking for a great house in Norfolk or Hampton Roads. Thank you Jason, so much!”

Gus and Alicia Grumet Winona, Norfolk, Va.


My wife and I made a monumental decision; we were moving across country from Richland, Washington to the Hampton Roads area. Why at our age after retiring from two careers? We wanted to be near family, military facilities old friends and a new residence that had features which would accommodate the fact that we were not getting any younger. We contacted Jason E. Dodd from the West Coast and presented him with our objectives. Jason E. Dodd listened; carefully asked questions and listened again. Such interactions were extremely helpful and allowed us to better frame what we were seeking in our new residence. When we arrived in the Norfolk area, we were prepared to look at the homes he picked out for our viewing. In less than a week we found our home, had our offer accepted and the closing process well underway. The home, the neighborhood and its location in the Hampton Roads area exceeded our expectations. The diligent, persistent efforts Jason E. Dodd expended to meet our new residence needs quickly put us at ease from a most stressful move across country for two retirees. We highly recommend Jason for meeting your real estate needs. He not only understands meeting the needs of his clients; he puts into action taking care of his clients.

Any military move is difficult enough, but the challenges associated with an overseas move are even greater. My family and I were in Germany and looking to buy a house in Norfolk. We had lived in Chesapeake in earlier tours, so we weren’t as familiar with the Norfolk area. Fortunately for us, Jason E. Dodd was there to assist on many levels. As a longtime Norfolk/Hampton Roads resident, Jason E. Dodd is intimately familiar with the area. Based on our conversations, he was immediately able to identify areas where he felt we would be most comfortable. There was no wasted time with places outside our financial means nor our stated desires. Additionally, he was able to recommend neighborhoods we never would have found on our own. Once we decided on our final few houses, Jason was very flexible with his time to assist us. With time zone differences and international calling issues, Jason worked with my wife and I to set up Skype video calls so that we could get into the details of the houses and, eventually, the closing. Without question, we felt incredibly comfortable with Jason as our Realtor and advocate. As a former Norfolk attorney and community volunteer, he is extremely well connected throughout the city. I would highly recommend Jason E. Dodd as a Realtor to any family member or friend looking to relocate to the Norfolk area! He understands the burden of frequent moves placed on military families, and he will do everything he can to ensure a successful home purchase! CMDR. Tim S. , U.S.N. Norfolk, Va.

It is my sincere pleasure to write a note of praise for Jason Dodd’s realty services. I worked with three other agents before going to Jason and the contrast was stark. Whereas with others I did not feel particularly valued as a client and was doing most of the searching on my own, Jason Dodd was the pinnacle of professionalism and knowledgeable expertise from the beginning to the end.

I discovered Jason because he had the best listings online – but he sold his properties so quickly that each of the times I inquired about a property he had listed it was already under contract! I contacted him while on a deployment to Iraq and he responded immediately and was very enthusiastic about helping me look to purchase a property. The entire process was made much simpler and more transparent; I felt far more confident than I could have otherwise thanks to Jason. In particular, he impressed me with his deep and current knowledge of the market and trends, a keen ability to discern my needs and wants, and reliable and expeditious work-ethic. I value and trust his input and I consistently felt that he had my best interests at heart during the entire process of buying my home. I have recommended him to all of my friends in the area and unreservedly would go to him first to sell or buy a property. ~ Joseph P., Chicks Beach, Virginia Beach
