The Courier - Tim Jamison - CEDAR FALLS - Brent Dahlstrom was born with an entrepreneurial spirit.

From an 8-year-old trying to make a buck to a college student selling tickets from his dorm room, the 34-year-old Dahlstrom has grown into one of the Cedar Valley’s largest real estate developers.

“It was just always who I was,” Dahlstrom said. “I always found it strange when I was younger when other people didn’t want to start … a business.

“I’m on year 16 of this,” he added. “I love every day being an entrepreneur and starting new things.”
