What Our Clients Say

They managed several homeowner associations, various rental properties, and most significantly, a 54-unit apartment complex, Branciforte Commons, located in Santa Cruz. Their professionalism, and especially Nora’s skill in identifying and placing good tenants, resulted in few vacancies and overall low property maintenance. Distinct Property Management’s pricing structure is competitive. True to their moniker, Distinct stands apart from other property management companies I have used over the last thirty years. Their skills in cost accounting, follow through with tenant issues, and diligent, detail-oriented property maintenance, sets them well above traditional real estate management standards.
