At Distinctive Real Estate, we know exactly what it takes to maximize the return on investment for your property and help pair you up with the best possible tenant. We've got decades of experience in this industry and, trust us, we've seen it all. We know exactly what approach should be taken for a property so that you can secure it as a source of income for as long as possible.
The types of services that we offer to investment property owners begin by going over the property in question with a proverbial fine-toothed comb. If you're looking to rent out an apartment, a home, a duplex or even a commercial space, we'll examine the property to help maximize it's potential. We'll market your property uniquely and through a large number of different channels to help attract the widest possible audience. Once those applications start rolling in, we'll go over each one and conduct a thorough tenant screening process (that includes both background and credit checks) to help present you with only the best list of tenants to review.
Once those tenants move in, we'll also take care of a large number of the different responsibilities that landlords and property owners are usually responsible for. If something breaks, don't worry - we'll handle it. When you enter into an arrangement with Distinctive Real Estate, we don't like to think that you're just hiring a service to conduct business on your behalf. What you're really doing is entering into a personal relationship that will be mutually beneficial for everyone.
