Meet Adam Manson

Visionary in the World of Real Estate

Adam Manson

Adam Manson, a real estate professional and specialist, possesses extensive knowledge of properties ranging from distinguished homes and oceanfront resorts and residences to apartments, hotels, retail spaces, offices, and commercial properties. Adam holds an MBA from Columbia Business School with a concentration in real estate and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania. His expertise in hotel management and development experience, along with his familiarity with real estate finance and banking, value-added property management, and physical plant operations make him a trusted expert in all facets of real estate. After forming Distinctive Ventures in 2001, Adam currently controls some 40 properties including the company’s well-received recent expansion into the Hamptons.

As Managing Director of Distinctive Resorts and Residences, Adam specializes in providing spectacular oceanfront homes at more affordable prices for second home buyers as well as idyllic destination vacations for perfect getaways. Personally involved in the day-to-day operations of each property in the Distinctive portfolio, Adam also actively manages construction projects, including the redevelopment of office properties and apartment buildings.

A top player in the high-end real estate market, Adam manages the kind of magnificent properties that home owners are clamoring for. Distinctive Resort and Residences at the Panoramic View, a first-of-its-kind exclusive full-service luxury complex in the Hamptons, has sold over $24 million worth of oceanfront real estate under Adam’s direction. The popular area known as “Millionaire’s Row” houses such celebrities as actor Robert De Niro, designer Ralph Lauren, and CAVI owner Alex Bize. Due to the inherent value of the Panoramic View’s oceanfront location, residential sales at the property exceeded Distinctive Management’s expectations for second home buyers. During the off season, Distinctive Resort and Residences at the Panoramic View celebrated its best winter to date as it pre-booked more than 70 percent of its summer-season resort rooms. In addition to Panoramic View, Adam also directs the operations of Distinctive Management’s other properties, including the Montauk Tower in Montauk, Ocean Dunes in Amagansett and Sea Crest on the Ocean between Amagansett and Montauk.
