Anthony Hume Dilweg (born March 28, 1965) is an American former professional football player who was a quarterback for two seasons with the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) from 1989 to 1990. Dilweg attended Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Maryland, graduating in the class of 1984. He played college football for the Duke Blue Devils. Dilweg was selected by Green Bay in the third round of the 1989 NFL Draft. He founded Dilweg, a leading Southern commercial real estate investment firm, in 1999 after spending years as a commercial real estate broker and growing his own real estate investment portfolio.

Since its beginnings, the firm has acquired more than $1.34 billion in asset value and more than 11.1 million square feet throughout the South. In recent years, the firm shed many of the non-strategic assets and concentrated the majority of acquisitions on Class-A office buildings, primarily in the Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Tampa, Dallas, and Raleigh-Durham metros. In the process, the firm established itself as a high-quality investor and operator of opportunistic and value-added, middle-market ($15 million to $100 million) office assets. With offices in Durham, Atlanta, Charlotte, and Tampa, Dilweg is a full-service real estate organization, whose mission is to deliver long-term value to its investors, tenants, and the community.
