3D Strategies serves those who serve others, including educational institutions, faith-based communities, governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, foundations, and family-owned trusts.


The goal of 3D Strategies is to help community organizations fulfill their missions by utilizing their real estate to become more financially stable through leasing, selling, buying, developing, or repurposing real property assets.


Whatever our path in life, we all have a calling to serve others. Sacrificial servant leadership is the road to true contentment.


Dominic’s real estate career began in 1988 when he joined his parent’s real estate company, Dutra Realty, after graduating from Santa Clara University with an MBA. After learning the ropes from his father, he became President and CEO. Dominic quickly led an expansion that encompassed 250+ real estate professionals, 35 staff members, and $922,000,000 in gross sales volume. Under his leadership, Dutra Realty became one of the largest and most successful real estate brokerages in the country. After a decade with Dutra Realty, the company was sold to Prudential California/Nevada Realty, where Dominic was named the chief operating officer.


In 2005, Dominic combined his real estate background with his passion to give back to the community by co-founding Dutra Cerro Graden, which was later renamed DCG Strategies. It was there that he perfected his unique approach to serving faith-based and public organizations with respect to their real estate needs. In 2012, he became a Certified Commercial Investment Member (“CCIM”), an elite certification held by only six percent of the estimated 150,000 commercial real estate practitioners nationwide.


In the early 2000’s, he served two non consecutive terms on the Fremont City Council, bringing jobs back to Fremont while also developing critical infrastructure. Dominic has also served on the Housing, Community, and Economic Committee for the League of California Cities. In 2014, he was accepted into Vistage Worldwide, an elite group of nationally recognized entrepreneurs and business leaders.
