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.

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. Lynda is an active licensed Realtor in Florida. When Lynda isn’t busy working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two teen-aged children and her Shepherd/Labrador mixed dog, Opie.
