Dutra Enterprises, Inc. (DEI) was established as an outgrowth of DEI’s original residential brokerage company, Dutra Realty Enterprises, Inc. (DRE), formed in 1972. When DRE was sold in 1999, the firm had grown to become a vertically integrated organization including a mortgage company, investment and consulting division, relocation unit, and a residential brokerage employing in excess of 250 real estate agents in six regional offices with annual sales exceeding $900,000,000. Since 1999, DEI has established many highly successful lines of business through partnerships with local and regional entities, builders, landowners, investors, businesses, entrepreneurs, political leaders and a diverse private and public sector clientele. DEI’s experience, regional knowledge, and relationships allow it to continue to be highly successful in the economically vibrant greater San Francisco Bay Area, most particularly in the Tri-Cities and Tri-Valley regions and across Alameda, Santa Clara and Contra Costa Counties.
A word about our competition
DEI operates in a niche market with limited competition from small, fragmented entities lacking the broad-based experience, relationships, asset base, financial capability or appetite needed to effectively create and unlock value in commercial and residential lands that lack vesting or entitlements. Builders prefer to acquire shovel-ready projects rather than to risk the 12- to 18- month period normally required to process a vesting tentative or final map, knowing their application for approval may be rejected by a county, city or other governmental agency. They also prefer to avoid the vesting risk, processing time, expense and the possibility of missing the upside of an expanding economy.
