Welcome to Distinct Dwelling: Taking the Stress Out of Property Management

At Distinct Dwelling, we understand that as a homeowner, your property is one of your most valuable assets. Renting it out grants you a myriad of benefits, from cash flow to tax reductions. But along with the benefits come a unique set of headaches. This is especially true if you’re renting multiple properties. From finding and screening tenants to managing inspections and maintenance, the stresses add up. That’s why many owners entrust their rentals to property management companies.


Property managers provide a lot of benefits over self-managing your rental property. They’ll deal directly with prospects and tenants to oversee the daily operations of your real estate investment. Not only will they deal with marketing, screening, and renting out your home. But, with a property manager, you’ve also got somebody else to deal with calls about leaky faucets and dirty gutters.

Most property managers primarily serve as middlemen. They orchestrate the relationship between homeowners, tenants, and handymen, contractors, and repairmen. The problem with many companies is that that’s where the service stops.


As longtime Central Oregon residents with a few decades of combined experience managing both commercial and residential properties, we found this service gap frustrating. Why should the tenant call the property manager, who calls the repairman, who coordinates with the property manager, to coordinate with the tenant, to get the repair taken care of?

Confused yet? So were we. That’s why we knew there had to be a more efficient way.


With our dedicated in-house construction and real estate services, we’re able to provide more comprehensive service than the typical property manager. We’re as comfortable screening tenants as we are replacing shingles, fixing leaky faucets, and shoveling snow. Here at Distinct Dwelling, we won’t just be the go-between for homeowners, tenants, and contractors. We’ll also be the folks who receive the work order, roll up our sleeves, and get the job done. Because our construction and repair services are exclusive, we’re able to offer timely, efficient service.


But it’s not enough to serve our owners and tenants. At Distinct, we believe everybody deserves a safe place to call home. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Cascade Youth and Family Center’s program, The LOFT.

The LOFT is a program specifically designed to help homeless and runaway youth become self-sufficient. Not only does the program give kids a safe and structured living space. It also provides education planning and support, employment search assistance, career planning, and life skills training. You can learn more about their mission and our giving program on our community give-back page.


At Distinct Dwelling, we’re proud of the work we put in to create a stress-free property management experience. When you partner with us, you’re not just another listing. You’re part of an exclusive community with comprehensive service and benefits. Learn more about how Distinct is serving up superior management in Central Oregon.
