Our roots date back to 1979, when Herbert Newman began a successful career, purchasing, renovating and operating over 15 properties in SMSI’s original submarket. Since then the focus has turned to high-end, luxury apartments in trendy neighborhoods, but the foundation of SMSI’s success remains the same … making everyone feel at home.

Over three decades of property management, we’ve learned that when our property owners, property managers, maintenance and office staff work tirelessly with residents to deliver that kind of outstanding residential experience, it also delivers business success: extraordinary apartment and condominium developments in Northeast Ohio and now, across the nation.

From beautiful wooded settings in Northeast Ohio to exclusive mountainside resort living in Asheville, North Carolina. From seniors to students to the most affluent professionals, the SMSI approach makes for high occupancy, low turnover and consistent resident satisfaction. Our business is property management, but it’s not really about assets or financial strategies or return on investment. After 30 years, and two generations, we’ve learned that success is simply making sure everyone feel at home.
