What Clients Have to Say

Our History

Tommie and Thelma Dawson were aviators who enjoyed a unique view of their market area and were well known for their expertise of land and development of small acreage subdivisions. Suburban Acres, Deer Haven Estates, and Country Estates I & II are some of their projects scattered throughout Hernando and Citrus Counties.

As second generation Hernando descendants, they were woven into the fabric of Hernando County life. Tommie served as a County Commissioner and leadership of numerous civic organizations. Thelma was involved with many civic organizations; she was also a member of Grasshoppers Flying Club, a women's only aviator organization.

In the mid 1980's their middle daughter Debbie, husband Buddy, and 1-year old daugher Lauren Ashley Selph joined the family business and several years later assumed leadership responsibility.

Since the 1990's Tommie Dawson realty has been actively involved in the acquisition of "preservation" land and has brokered over 12,000 acres in Hernando, Citrus & Pasco County. Tommie Dawson Realty brokered the first Gopher Mitigation Park (Perry Oldenberg Park) in the state of Florida, the first Hernando County Environmental Land acquisition (Cypress Lakes) and the northern anchor (5,200 acres) of the Annutulaga C.A.R.L. program.

Tommie Dawson Realty is a recognized leader in commercial and industrial properties, having brokered Coastal Way and Coastal Landing Shopping Centers, Brooksville Lowes, Rural King, Burger King, Taco Bell, Wendys, Checkers, Capital City Banks and many others.

In 2005 Shaun and Lauren Selph Andrew, representing  the 3rd generation of the family business, joined the firm. Despite the near collapse of the real estate market in 2006, both established a strong presence in Acreage, Residential, and Commercial markets.

In addition to providing client representation for all types of real estate brokerage, we also represent clients in the rezoning and permitting of their properties, tax assessment challenges, highest & best use analysis and valuation services.
