Why Stewardship Properties?
We named our company “stewardship” because our mission is to put people before profits and to carefully steward the resources with which we've been entrusted.
We Believe Everyone Should Win
A Win For The Community
Stewardship is a “buy and hold” real estate company that looks for properties (including distressed ones) that we can upgrade into high-quality affordable housing for the communities and residents we serve.
A Win For Our Lenders
We use private lenders so we always have an ongoing source of funds to close quickly with sellers. For this benefit, we pay them well.
Stewardship Properties began in 1989.
We purchased our first home in Eugene, Oregon. Our first “rental office” was a greasy little table at Wendy’s near the University of Oregon. (Thanks Wendy’s!)
Since then, we've grown into a national presence with nearly 1,000 properties, and 15 partners in seven states.
Even when the business consisted of just one property, the hope was to build a company that was more than just about making money. The name stewardship comes from the perspective that we are all “just passing through this life.” Good stewards are those who carefully and responsibly manage what has been entrusted to them.
Our mission is to live up to our namesake by creating winning opportunities for each stakeholder: sellers, residents, lenders, and us.
