How everything started
Helping others through new opportunity
After the real estate crash of 2008, Clay Lehman realized how his unique blend of skills in accounting, real estate and finance – and his innate ability to take complex problems and break them down in can-do steps – gave him the ability to manage properties in a way that’s virtually frictionless and hassle-free. Ultimately, this became Resolute Property Management, a company that can provide you with cost-effective solutions to all your Ocala property management needs.
with outstanding experience
Meet the Resolute
Property Management Team
President + Founder
Resolute Property Management was founded over 10 years ago by Clay Lehman, a respected veteran of the mortgage and real estate industry. Lehman, who is a CPA and a licensed Real Estate Broker, said “Resolute offers proven yet flexible processes to meet each investor client’s unique needs. We strive to find high quality tenants and treat them respectfully, providing top quality service to ensure long residency and low eviction rates. Our process helps us achieve highest ROI for our clients.”
Lynda Smauder joined the Resolute Team in early 2013. The fifteen years prior to joining Resolute, Lynda worked for Pulte Homes. This afforded her exposure to the real estate and housing market, which served her well as she assumed the role of Operations Manager for Resolute Property Management in 2019. She brought with her over three decades of accounting and bookkeeping knowledge. With experience in small business, corporate business and public accounting, Lynda provided invaluable tools to help Resolute grow. When Lynda isn’t busy working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two teen-aged children and her Shepherd/Labrador mixed dog, Opie.
Business Development Manager
Resolute Property Management is pleased to announce Joe Egizio to the team! Joe has accepted the position of Business Development Manager, effective 05/31/2019. Joe will work with real estate investors to help them meet their goals.
Joe has been a real estate investor since he purchased his first home in Ocala at the age of 20. He currently owns four rental properties here in Marion County. Joe has three years of residential home inspection experience, REO property maintenance, and is licensed as a mortgage loan originator.
Joe enjoys building, collecting, buying and selling classic cars and trucks. His passion led him to being featured in a national magazine at the beginning of this year.

Repair and Maintenance Manager
Mona became the Repair Manager for Resolute Property Management in May 2019. In her repair role, she is responsible for property maintenance by contracting and managing local vendors, resolving tenant concerns while maintaining budgets and enforcing rules of occupancy.
Prior to joining the property management team, Mona was the Senior Asset Manager for Resolute Asset Management for eight years where she analyzed property valuations, marketing plans, marketing strategies, and recommended repairs to ensure maximum possible return for clients.
When she is not working, she is enjoying spending time with family, her husband Kyle, and their adorable puppy Lax. Her favorite thing to do is travel with her husband for Lacrosse games and tournaments.
With her paralegal background, eye for detail, and experience in property management, Rachel expertly juggles numerous tasks every single day, prioritizing them and then just getting them done. Her job, she says, involves a “little bit of everything,” from daily property management to inspections of homes to answering residents’ questions and keeping them informed. She loves dealing with people and solving any challenges that arise—and she also loves her two kids and beagle-basset hound, Rainee. Rachel is a lifelong Florida resident and, as far as hobbies, she enjoys playing the piano, singing and riding horses.
Lisa Reed joins Resolute Property Management with over 15 years of account manager experience and has successfully managed over 200 properties. Prior to obtaining her position she has performed in all areas of Real Estate from purchasing lots to construction to leasing to refinancing. She enjoys making sure that all aspects of the leasing process are a smooth transition for all parties involved. The most rewarding part of the job is to know a tenant has been placed in a home that fits their needs and their budget. She firmly believes that someone’s success is only as great as the supporting team she is a part of both professionally and personally. When she is not working, you can find her spending time with her husband, kids, grandkids and usually with a crochet hook in her hand.
Her motto: Some days you have to create your own Sunshine.
Director of First Impressions
Janet likes to think of herself as the Director of First Impressions. For the past few years, she’s been known as the smiling face of Resolute as she greets people from the front desk and cheerfully answers the phone. Her bachelor’s degree is in elementary education. When she isn’t busy making people feel right at home at Resolute, she loves spending time with friends and family—and, of course, with her “baby,” Tucker, a three-year-old black lab. She enjoys spending time at the beach, lake and mountains, Disney, watching movies, listening to music and making crafts.
