History of Dodson Land Surveying and WW Surveying

Dodson Land Surveying has been providing surveying services to the greater Santa Barbara area since 1998. Dennis M. Dodson, is a licensed California Professional Land Surveyor with over 25 years of surveying experience. Dodson purchased Garner Land Surveying in 1998 and with that purchase came 40 years of records to assist in research of nearly every corner of Santa Barbara.

In 2018 Dennis hired James Wenzel, a licensed California Professional Land Surveyor with over 25 years of surveying experience. The two became fast friends and as Dennis was looking to retire and sell his business, James became that perfect person. Combined, there is over 50 years of experience and almost 70 years of records to assist in research of nearly every corner of Santa Barbara and now San Luis Obispo.

James Wenzel started his own company, WW Surveying, Inc, on the side, in 2018, in San Luis Obispo County, where he began his career as a surveyor 30 years ago. After he joined Dennis at Dodson, Dennis began to groom James to take over his business.
On Aug. 12, 2020 this became a reality, when James, along with his wife, Kellie, bought Dodson Land Surveying, from Dennis.

Dennis is staying on part-time to help make a smooth transition and provide the same service to all the clients he and James have helped with all their surveying needs.

WW Surveying, Inc is now serving all of Santa Barbara county and San Luis Obispo County, on the central coast of CA.

Both James and Dennis continued to work with Garner, Dodson and WW Surveying clients and has expanded their client base to include many local realtors, contractors, architects and other design professionals. In addition, they have provided surveying services to many individual property owners.
