People Are Our Passion

We believe in the power of awesome people.


In 1999, building on his family’s 40+ years of multifamily experience, Dwight Dunton III started Bonaventure in the spare bedroom of his rented apartment. Bonaventure was built around a unique concept - successfully managing a community isn't as much about the properties as it is about the people. With a great property and average people, you still get average results and average experiences; but, if you have great people you can consistently beat the market and create memorable, shareable experiences for residents and prospects, alike. At the time, Dwight had more fingers on his right hand than he did employees. Since then, Dwight's innovative people strategy has helped Bonaventure become one of the preeminent boutique management and development firms in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
