We purchased our first property in Eugene, Oregon in 1989. And our first “rental office” was a small table at a Wendy’s near the University of Oregon. Since then we've grown into a national presence with more than 1,400 properties and 12 partners in five 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 great opportunities for each of our stakeholders: residents, lenders, contractors, partners, and our office and field staff.
To serve people in their housing needs. To provide services that uplift our residents.
To wisely invest their funds, giving them a good return for its use.
To treat them in a respectful, straightforward and ethical way.
To work on their behalf so together we substantially benefit.
To create wealth, enabling increased and unexpected opportunities.
To continue to grow our business through continuous learning and innovation.
Being Good Stewards also includes embracing the values of integrity, honesty, kindness, and compassion. Those values start with how we treat each other on our team and then, how our team treats our residents and those with which we do business.
We believe that we find a special strength in diversity of personalities, skill sets, gender, age and ethnicities. Good stewards work hard to create an environment where people can grow, excel, thrive and advance.
