Text Box: Excellence in Management Consulting

Dark Mountain Innovations, LLC (DMI) is a small, highly qualified and specialized consulting firm situated in Northern Virginia at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  DMI is a Veteran-Owned and HUBZone Certified Small Business formed in July, 2002 and specializes in real property asset management matters concerning Government-owned facilities and business development of commercial real estate opportunities.  This unique, diverse, and experienced team focuses on strategic planning, program and project development, business process improvement, and innovative solutions to real property asset management and disposition challenges. 

Among our outstanding accomplishments is the creation and implementation of the first Real Property Exchange (RPX) Concept to be institutionalized within the Federal Government.  RPX has resulted in highly successful recapitalization of the current value of existing properties into new construction at more beneficial locations for the Army. 

Through DMI initiatives and professional consulting services, the RPX concept has increased in momentum throughout the Department of Defense.  The forecasted affect of RPX and related DMI efforts is the reapplication of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of current property value to new requirements.

In its first years of operation, DMI has provided a wealth of professional experience and accelerated property management performance and accomplishment to the Federal Sector.  Most recently, DMI has been significantly involved in assisting the US Army in developing managing its Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) 2005 Military Construction Program and Budget.  This effort entails the top-end management of hundreds of multi-million dollar projects annually all across the nation.  Rapid response to our clients' requirements has been a hallmark of DMI performance. 

DMI is a true management partner with the Federal Government agencies we serve.  We work proudly each day to earn and maintain their confidence.

DMI has enjoyed a rapid expansion into commercial markets as well and is equally proud to earn the confidence of its outstanding private sector clients.

Our motto is, “Pride in Everything We Do!” and each of our actions embody that theme.

For those who are curious as to how we came up with "Dark Mountain" for our name, it is very simple.  The last name of our founders, James and Catherine Dunkelberger, an old and proud German name, translates to "he who cometh from the dark mountain."  We are proud of our name and of the firm we've created.  Thank you for visiting our site.
