Dorothy Erickson was born in upstate New York. She started her career employed by Rand McNally & Co. in Ossining, New York as a Production Manager for 10 years. She then moved to Illinois for a year to pursue the same profession at Systems Divisions in Skokie, IL. Dorothy decided to move to California with her wonderful husband, Paul, in 1976. The happily married couple decided to settle down in Santa Rosa and start a family. In 1986, Dorothy’s husband, Paul, started Erickson Appraisals based in Santa Rosa. For the past 20 years, Dorothy took the role of property manager for the family’s properties throughout California and she loved, as well as became very familiar, with the real estate process. Several of her duties as Property Manager included setting up leases and rental agreements and conducting thorough maintenance of the properties.

In 1993, the business was thriving and Dorothy stepped in and started helping out her husband by handling the accounting aspects of the business. In the last 3 years, Dorothy decided to play a more active role in the business by obtaining her Real Estate License. Currently, Dorothy is a Real Estate agent in the greater Sonoma County area. With all of her previous experience, Dorothy aids clients in the selling of their current home, as well as the purchase of their future home.
