Steele Properties continues to monitor the current environment as the situation continues to change and evolve. We are, first and foremost, committed to the health and safety of our residents, team members, vendors, partners and the communities that we own and manage. We have adopted new policies and procedures during this crisis that follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations and comply with all state and local government mandates to help reduce the spread of the virus.


  • All our offices are closed to the public.
    • We are in the office to handle emergencies, do administrative work and take deliveries.
  • Our offices can be reached by email, phone or fax.
  • For lease and rental inquiries, please call the community or visit

  • Please comply with city, state and local governments mandates and orders about COVID-19.
  • All common areas are closed (except as authorized by Monroe for an Essential Activity) to prevent the spread of COVID-19 until further notice. Please refrain from using and do not hang out in common areas.
  • Our offices are now closed to you, our residents, and the public. We are in the office for emergencies, administrative work and deliveries.

  • We are cleaning and sanitizing the common areas daily in addition to our regular cleaning routine and have posted signs detailing our sanitizing work.
  • The Laundry Room is open, but residents are asked to follow social distancing rules (stay 6 feet away from another person) and limit their time.
