To Charles Simms and Company,

Thank you so much for the thoughtfulness of sending the beautiful flowery plants to my husband Bob’s funeral. They are still alive and well in my ‘condo’. I am so grateful to be living here and part of such a caring Simms community.

Here is the BOTTOM-LINE – about this particular builder:


I am compelled to share my home-buying experience because of this builder’s performance – throughout the entire home buying process and up to closing date. I hope this review could help others gains insight into what you might be working with for a new home.

Generally speaking, the purchasing of a new home was nothing short of a long process. The utmost importance for me and my family was to

(1) find a builder who was credible and
(2) had a long standing reputation we could rely on to make make the
home buying process a successful story.

Nonetheless, these were our first impression on this builder.

Open-house tour. We visited the model homes and met Robi who showed us the model and the townhouse complex. We found Robi to be patient, considerate, and did not try to push us into a sale. He focused on our needs and let us decide for ourselves if the place was a good fit for us.

Quality. The townhouse are relatively small compared to the standard single-family houses, but, they definitely provide much better quality then other builders. It made sense to us that it would be better to get a smaller place that had better quality, better neighborhood, then paying for a bigger house with low quality and questionable neighborhood.

Purchase Agreement. Approximately two weeks later, my wife and I decided to proceed and sign a purchase agreement with Charles Simms Development after thoroughly reviewing their purchase contract. We concurred with their terms and condition despite the $4,000 earnest fund required within a week from signing. The requirements made sense since the builder was putting a lot of money also to begin the building process.

Walk-through Inspection. We were impressed with the walk-though inspection after our unit was built. The builder does a walk though one week before closing to ensure the unit meets your expectation. They did not care how small or big your concern about any deficiencies you found during the walk through – The builder did in fact make sure everything meet your quality standards BEFORE closing AND during your 30 day re-inspection after closing.

With everything already said so far, I skipped a lot of steps, but I hope my review was enough to shine light into what you could reasonably expect working with this builder and the area.

Our community is better thanks to your family’s commitment!

Charles Simms properties are first class and show better in person. It started with the landscaping solidifying the elegance and home feeling you get when you pull in. Everything from the landscaping, fountains, and the overall design of the buildings make this a beautiful and peaceful place to live. Once I toured a home my feelings of ‘I have to have this’ grew exponentially. From the unique exposed brick options, open ceilings, open floor plans, and elegant additions such as professionally designed color schemes and options like the shower in the master bathroom are what make this place scream unique and home. Location was huge as this is right of 75 and was a better commute for work to North Cincinnati than when I lived in downtown Cincinnati. Also, you are in one of best school districts in Ohio and there is literally everything you need within a 1 mile radius. From Austin Landing inclusive of shopping, nice restaurants, and grocery stores, to historic downtown Springboro and Heatherwood golf course that only added to this appeal of the area and home.

I travel the country a lot and place like this screams Chicago or New York which would be closer to the $1M range there. Also, this place is plenty spacious as this is the medium size floor-plan with 1800 square feet of living area, 3 bedrooms (or 2 and a den), 3 1/2 bathrooms, a 2 car side-by-side garage, and big deck that has provided many entertaining nights with my outdoor furniture and fire table. Overall this place has been my dream home and would buy another Charles Simms Property in a heartbeat.

Hi Robi!

Everything looked beautiful when I got home last night and even better this morning! This is exactly what I pictured the home to look like upon closing. It feels like home now. Thank you so much!!

Charlie & Team,

Thank you for our new home. We are very excited to be first time home buyers in downtown Dayton at Patterson Place.

Thank you for your flexibility in allowing us to close on a Saturday so that my husband could be present. Keep up the great work you are doing in the Dayton area.
