Meet Our Team

Mike Simms
Following in my father’s footsteps, from an early age I developed a passion to become the next generation of Simms Builders. I received a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Kentucky.

I make it a point to be involved with every aspect of construction of your new home from initial meetings with the clients to overseeing the design with our in-house designer (Shannon Ruby) and interior designer (Brenda Mapp). I personally supervise each home and am available to speak with customers on and off the jobsite throughout all stages of construction.

Home building is not just my business; it is something that I am excited about! It has been a way of life in our family for four generations. I have been fortunate through the building process to meet some incredible people that have become life-long friends.

Brenda Mapp
Brenda has been with HBS Development since 1997 as Interior Designer and Sales Manager. She works with every client and partners with our architecture and design teams to create a home that is truly unique, meeting the lifestyle needs of the family.

We realize that time is so limited with your work schedules and family demands. Brenda will set appointments to assist you in selecting every finish of your home from cabinets, appliances, flooring, paint, and of course exterior brick and stone. Brenda says her goals are to keep you in budget, make sure you have lots of choices, and have fun while you are doing it!

She’s also available to help you select new furniture and accessories for your new home as well as place your furniture once it arrives. She truly is dedicated to delivering exactly what you’re looking for, right down to the last detail.

Shannon Ruby
Shannon Ruby joined our team in 2007. His initial responsibility was to provide design services for custom homes built by our parent company, HBS Development. Since then, he has added the role of Project Manager/ Designer for Simms Custom Remodeling. Shannon began designing residential homes in 1997. Over the next four years he worked with several Dayton area architects and another homebuilder for whom he managed the building process from design through completion. Between 2001 and 2003 he attended Western Michigan University, earning a degree in construction engineering / management. He returned to the Miami Valley after graduating and did commercial projects before joining our firm. Shannon has in depth, first-hand knowledge of construction and building codes. He also has a unique ability to put on paper what exists in someone’s mind.

Totha Hurt
Totha Hurt, on staff since 1990, is a key member of our administrative team. College-trained in accounting, her primary functions are those tasks necessary to effectively manage accounts payable and receivable. Totha’s experience in handling the financials of our firm makes her duties critical to the successful operation of the company. Her involvement in project invoicing, change orders, draws and other vital tasks places her at the forefront of sustaining good relations with clients, employees, subcontractors and suppliers.
