About Eric

Eric Dahman, mountain realty broker associate in Summit County Colorado.

A Passion for Real Estate

My Mission: “To share my passion for Colorado Mountain Living, by being a trusted, service oriented advisor to my clients’ real estate needs.”

Real estate is in my blood. My grandfather was a builder, developer, and real estate broker. My father is an architect and builder, and my mother is an interior designer. I first started working in the family business as a teenager, working summers on custom home projects in one of the first master planned mountain communities in Colorado – Genesee.

I loved that community – it had a small town feel, with a focus on family, outdoor recreation, and community events. Coincidentally, my wife grew up there as well.

Education & Experience

After graduating from Purdue University in 1989 with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Business Administration (emphasis on Economics), I returned home to Colorado. As an avid skier, and with a love for the mountains, I spent two years managing restaurants in the Steamboat Springs area.

Then, in 1991, the custom home market started to heat up in Denver, so my father asked that I join him building custom homes. So, I moved back to the Front Range, and began a career in custom home development. From 1991 to 2005, we built over 48 custom homes in many of the finest developments on the Front Range.

Businessman & Entrepreneur

As the building boom continued, I started my own development company in 1999 – Synergy Custom Homes. I built custom homes mainly on a speculative basis – identifying market opportunities, buying land, hiring architects, negotiating labor contracts, managing budgets and schedules, executing marketing plans, staging properties, and delivering exceptional client services were all essential to my success.

In 2005, an opportunity arose to take a trade from one of my home buyers. It was a small, three bedroom townhome on Ridge Street in Breckenridge. It was somewhat dilapidated, and needed much work, but it had great “bones” and was in a terrific location - one block off Main Street, with incredible views of the Ski Mountain.

My wife and I purchased the property, and spent the next sixteen weekends completely renovating the interior. Since we had no kitchen and no bathrooms during the remodel, we’d go the Breckenridge Recreation Center to shower, and then walk up and down Main Street discovering new restaurants and shops. We fell in love with Breckenridge! It was exactly the type of family oriented mountain community that my wife and I had always dreamed of raising our family in.

Loving Life in Breckenridge

So, in 2006 we moved our family and my business to Summit County. For the next several years, the Breckenridge real estate market remained strong. I developed and sold several custom homes, developed Quarter Share Properties, executed 1031 Exchanges, and got to know the local real estate market. Then, in 2008, the economy took a turn for the worse.

With new home construction in Summit County going from 100+ new homes per year in 2007, to just eight in 2009 – I had to make some adjustments. So, I teamed up with Chris Renner and Pinnacle Mountain Homes. From 2009 – 2014, I built 5 Award Winning Parade Homes, and we were awarded with Builder Magazine’s “Builder of the Year.”

Now, after twenty-three years of focus on construction and development, I am excited to share my skills, knowledge, and resources with more clients than ever before. I love meeting new people, sharing my passion for Breckenridge, and helping others realize their Colorado Mountain Lifestyle dreams.

My Philosophy

I truly believe that happy clients are essential to a fruitful career, and therefore – 100% of my past clients are on my reference list. I’d love the opportunity to compete for your business and place you on that list as well.

What people are saying about Eric

Curt and Beth Cooper

"Eric truly went above and beyond for us as we purchased land in Breckenridge. As a busy professional, having Eric on our team really took the stress and pressure off of us and allowed us to focus on our business. He truly felt like a personal assistant that helped with anything we asked of him. He not only helped us navigate a process we were unfamiliar with, but he made sure we maintained our due diligence schedule and warned us of any potential red-flags. In short, his knowledge and commitment to his craft made him invaluable to our purchase. I would highly recommend Eric as a reliable partner."

Keith and Laura Tayman

Eric Dahman was the listing agent on the home we recently sold in the Highlands and is working with us as we purchase a spec home, also in the Highlands. On both transactions, Eric has been extremely helpful and his advice and guidance have been invaluable. We have found Eric to be extremely diligent, responsive and knowledgeable about the Breckenridge real estate market and we credit him with the successful sale of our home and the smooth navigation of the contract period. As we work with him on the purchase of the spec home, we have been incredibly grateful for his extensive building experience, his patience in explaining technical matters to us and his impressive design talents and capabilities as we work to select finishes. The process of buying a spec home can be overwhelming, but Eric’s assistance has facilitated all of our decisions and given us confidence that we are making the right ones. We highly recommend Eric as a listing agent, builder and designer.

John and Heidi Smith,
Cordillera, Colorado

"Heidi and I first met Eric in 2011 when we built our custom home in the Highlands in Breckenridge. We selected Pinnacle Mountain Homes to be our builder primarily because Eric was our lead Project Manager. During our first meeting with Eric we felt very comfortable that he would be able to build us a high quality home. As we worked with Eric he was full of great ideas to enhance our thoughts for what we wanted in our home and as a result we ended up with a better home in the end. He was very detailed oriented making sure everything was done right all along the building process catching mistakes and getting them resolved before they became bigger issues. He never rushed a decision allowing the team to come to the right conclusion, but at the same time he ensured we stayed on schedule. His years of experience and knowledge made a huge difference to have our home built with the highest level of quality. The house was entered into the 2012 Parade of Homes and won Best Exterior in our category.

We lived in the house for four years before deciding to move to the Beaver Creek area. When it came time to select our realtor it was obvious to us that we would select Eric. That turned out to be a great decision!

Eric did a wonderful job listing and selling our home. He created world-class marketing materials, ensured a broad distribution via on-line real estate sites and provided excellent coaching on how to prep the house for showings. As a result we had multiple high quality offers within 10 days of the property being listed. He conducted the negotiation with the interested buyers and was able to get us an acceptable no contingency offer at 97.5% of list price after the property was on the market for only 13 days. This was very impressive for a property at the $2M price point. He managed the process from offer to close masterfully ensuring we didn't run into any issues and we were able to close on time. Eric is very knowledgeable of the local market and was extremely responsive throughout the process.

We definitely recommend Eric Dahman if you want to build a house or buy/sell a property."

Kevin and Tiffany,
Denver, Colorado

"My wife, Tiffany and I, had be looking for a home in the Breckenridge area for several years. We favored the concept of buying land and building a new home, but the process always seemed too overwhelming. Fortunately, we were introduced to Eric earlier this year and the chemistry was excellent right off the bat. With Eric's experience, knowledge and thoughtful approach, suddenly the process of finding a lot, coming up with a budget, selecting architects and builders, all seemed much less daunting. We are extremely grateful to have found a trusted partner.

It became more and more clear as we worked closely together that building Speculative and Custom homes for many years in summit county (including his own) provided insight that would be difficult to obtain elsewhere. My wife can be quite picky and demanding (ok, so can I). We both felt it was important to exhaust all avenues in our search for the ideal lot for our family. Eric was extremely patient, incredibly responsive and very resourceful as we worked together to find our property. Given the hundreds of emails, texts and phone calls - many during evenings and weekends - I can confidently attest to his very strong work ethic. It helps when you are passionate about your job; and, we had that sense about Eric right away. He had countless great ideas along the way and was always quite objective, but not afraid to speak his mind. He also made several valuable introductions which is giving us a great start as we embark on the building process. I highly recommend Eric and would work with him again in a heartbeat. Feel free to ask Eric for my info if you'd like to discuss any aspect of my recommendation. Good luck in your search, though if you partner with Eric, luck won't be as important!"

Paul Steinweg,
Pinnacle Mountain Homes

"I am delighted to be able to recommend you as the best relator in the Summit County area!

Since moving to Summit County 12 years ago, my family went through three real estate transactions before meeting you. It is truly refreshing to find a local realtor who is trustworthy, hardworking, and personable.

Simply stated, we would not have our Breckenridge dream home if it weren’t for you. From spotting it for us as soon as it was posted, to helping us inspect it onsite, and finally to negotiating the best price for us, we COULD NOT BE HAPPIER.

Being in the construction industry, I really appreciated your viewpoints on the construction of the home from your custom/spec home background, walking commentary as we reviewed it together, and attention to the financial specifics in our offer. I have extremely high expectations when it comes to timely responses and follow-up (verging on a personality disorder); and, you met all of those perfectly.

Since buying the home, we have taken your advice on some of the remodeling opportunities and it has greatly improved the livability and value of our home.

We will continue to recommend you to our local friends and will certainly be giving you a call when we sell one day."

Denise and Gary Strassler,

With Eric's direction and attention to detail, we took his advice and professionally had our home staged with generally minor changes that made a significant difference in the overall updated look that our home was in need of after 15 years of collected clutter!
