Meet our founders
Brian grew up in the Tampa Bay area before moving to Atlanta and building a very successful national sales recruiting company. Along the way he helped hundreds of businesses to develop their brand, messaging and image. When his long time friends with backgrounds in the mortgage and Real Estate industries started a full service real estate brokerage he was a natural fit for the development side of the business. He oversaw the management of purchasing, financing , remodeling and selling homes in the Tampa Bay area. With years of experience working with officials, suppliers and clients of all types, Brian was well prepared for his next step. Brian may be a fan of rebuilding classic cars, but when it comes to his living footprint he is a minimalist and was the catalyst for the creation of Tampa Bay Tiny Homes.
Matthew is a born Floridian whose adolescent years had him living in New York and New Jersey, moving back to the Saint Petersburg area in 1995. Always having been a hands-on person, handy-man work and carpentry came as second nature. After college and in the early 2000’s Matthew acquired his Mortgage Brokerage License and practiced within that field until moving into Foreclosure Defense in the latter part of the 2000’s. Matthew went on to become the VP of Business Development eventually managing five law firms in four different states. By the mid years of 2010 Matthew opened up a consulting firm specializing in home restoration and real-estate portfolio building during which time a friendship and business bond was formed with Herb Dorsey, managing partner and founder of Tampa Bay Tiny Homes.
Herbert (Herb) Dorsey
Herbert Dorsey who likes to be called Herb, is born and raised in St Pete of the Tampa Bay Area. He has loved and lived in this community the majority of his life. As a kid growing up Herb watched both his parents transition from working for someone to owning their own successful businesses which contributed to his aspirations to be an entrepreneur. Immediately after high school Herb took on his first sales position selling window treatments for homes. He quickly earned and became the general manger under the mentorship of the company’s owner getting his initial experience of how to develop and manage a business. After a few years he took that experience into the wireless industry where he managed and helped scale multiple retail locations in over 10 different cities in Florida before purchasing and owning 3 locations of his own. Herb’s love for being an entrepreneur and growing a business was not singular, he also realized he had a passion for real estate investing and home design. For almost 10 years he has purchased and renovated homes all over the Tampa Bay Area as well as becoming a licensed Real Estate Agent. As a veteran of the real estate industry he has mentored and consulted a number of prominent real estate investors. Throughout the years of fixing and flipping houses Herb has also built a team of general contractors and tradesmen. When Brian presented to Herb the idea of building tiny homes, without hesitation he believed in it and has been passionate about bringing Tiny Homes and affordable living to the Tampa Bay Area.
