We are established. Valiant Residential (formerly SIMC Property Management Group) has been an innovative force in the multi-family property industry for more than 40 years. We were founded in 1974 by property owners and asset managers George J. Martin, Jr. and Michael S. Zimmer as Settlement Investments. Under their leadership, Settlement Investments encompassed every aspect of real estate development – from acquisition, rehabilitation and management to new construction and conversion of multi-family communities. By 1987, Martin and Zimmer recognized a need for more innovation and swifter execution in the property management industry. Informed by their professional and personal experiences, they launched Settlement Investments Management Corporation (SIMC) and shifted the company’s focus to enhancing investors’ value through strategic improvements and operational efficiencies.
Today, we are Valiant Residential. Led by our president Craig Lashley, we currently oversee more than 9,900 units, as well as commercial assets from our Dallas, Texas, headquarters. Our uncompromising commitment to providing best-in-class services to our clients and residents has made us a leading property management company with an award-winning culture.
