Our Staff & Leadership

Under the leadership of Rodney F. Emery, CEO of Steadfast Companies, SMC has assembled a team of skilled professionals who bring a combined total of more than 100 years of property management experience to SMC.

Our property management professionals strive to prevent problems rather than just solving them. Our holistic approach provides a strong foundation of property management fundamentals and guidelines to create stability, as well as a sense of community and comfort for our residents.

Guided by both our corporate mission and Core Values, Steadfast is a loyal advocate of numerous community outreach organizations that provide a diverse range of housing and social services to the children and families residing in the communities we do business.
