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. I personally supervise each home and am available to speak with customers on and off the job site 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.

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 home builder 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.

He supports Mike with field supervision and works with many of the vendors, subs and contractors. His expertise helps to provide solutions in unique, custom design needs as well as day to day tasks to make sure the little things do not fall through the cracks.

Sarah Simms officially joined HBS 8 years ago. She comes with a degree in Business Administration from The University of Kentucky. You will see Sarah around the office as she helps with many day to day tasks as well supporting Totha with invoicing and billing. Once your home is finished, you will be working with her personally on any service calls at 30 days and then again at a year to make sure that your finished home is meeting your expectations. We build a solid, beautiful custom home but we know that things do happen. Whether it is a common nail pop or an appliance that doesn’t seem to be working correctly, Sarah is your main point of contact if something does occur. She will work with all of the trades to problem solve and make fixes that may come up. Sarah continues the relationship HBS has built with you during the building process after you move in and throughout your first year.
