You can search our site without needing to register or log in - we therefore collect no information about you whatsoever when you are accessing these generic areas of our web site. To search our database of properties for sale you may select one of two search methods:

  • Anonymous: You may elect to remain completely anonymous when you search for properties on the Distinctive Properties web site. If you select this option, we do not collect any personal information from you. This option provides limited access to property information. For example, property addresses will not be disclosed to anonymous users.
  • My Distinctive - : Once you have created a "My Distinctive" account you may associate your account with a specific Distinctive sales associate, or have one assigned to you. When you select an associate to be "My Agent", the sales associate you selected will be notified that you have done so, and will be provided with your contact information so that he/she may contact you for follow-up. The agent may also access details about your property search criteria, and list of specific properties you have viewed through the Distinctive web site. In selecting an associate as "My Agent", you agree that your use of the Distinctive web site does not, in and of itself, create an agency relationship between you and the sales associate, or with Distinctive Properties, Inc. However, further interactions between you and the sales associate (including contracts via e-mail, phone or in person) may result in establishing an agency relationship under the laws of WA.
