Boutique management firm DMG / Property Management was founded in 2019 by property manager Natalie Dierkes, whose people-focused vision is grounded in over 10 years of experience in the real estate industry. Active in management and renovation of income-producing properties since 2012 through her family’s real estate business, where she helps manage over 150 units, including more than 100,000 square feet of office and retail space in downtown Asheville, Natalie launched DMG to fill a special niche in the Asheville market.

As a property owner herself, with 11 buildings in the downtown area, Natalie understands first-hand the importance of strengthening the value of each owner’s investment. Her proven ability to attract and retain high-quality tenants and her focus on preserving the unique character of each property and its place in the community form the core of DMG’s vision.

DMG provides a full suite of property management services for both commercial and residential property owners. Drawing on extensive local knowledge and experience, with an established network of local contractors and vendors, DMG delivers marketing, leasing, maintenance, and management services with the goal of maximizing the value of each investment. In addition to full-service leasing and management, DMG also offers design and renovation services with an eye toward increasing the long-term value of a property.

A property’s value is expressed not just in its physical structure but in what makes it unique, a quality that’s reflected in the residents it attracts and the businesses it supports. At DMG, we understand that people are a crucial part of each property owner’s return on investment, and we’re committed to enabling the growth of thriving local businesses and communities.

Team Members

Myra Hensley

Senior Property Manager

An Asheville native, Myra attended East Carolina University before returning home to the mountains, where she lives with her husband and two kids. At DMG, Myra handles all leasing and administrative functions—accounting, data entry, lease documents, property records, maintenance requests and more. If owners or tenants have questions, need a copy of documents, or need maintenance or repairs, Myra’s the one to call. When she’s not keeping the DMG office running smoothly, she loves baking or curling up with a good book. A mountain gal at heart, she readily admits her favorite getaway place is the beach: “Toes in the sand, with a drink in hand.”

Chris Scott

Maintenance Manager

A California transplant who recently moved to Asheville, Scott is happy to be in the mountains and loves hiking and exploring nature with his dog. At DMG / Property Management, Scott is responsible for all routine maintenance and repairs for our residential and commercials properties, and he is also the lead tradesman for minor renovations. Skilled in all aspects of property maintenance, Scott is quick on his feet and able to handle any problems that might arise. Outside of work, Scott is a talented musician and still an avid surfer, although he has to travel to the coast now to catch the waves. His is the face you’ll see for all maintenance requests.
