We built a new home with Zimmermann Homes, and Rob and his highly competent team were with us every step of the way. The property had a complicated tear-down and multi-step permit project, and the team guided us through that easily. We appreciated the detailed plan and build process, which seamless integrated the house design, room by room product selection, installation and finish work. Zimmermann homes delivered the quality home we envisioned, on time and on budget, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the result. You won’t find a better, more attentive builder!

Rob and his team put us into a home we never imagined we could have given our budget and existing conditions. Our renovation and addition feels like a new build, not a remodel. Rob's communication was superb and the process was enjoyable. We have to pinch ourselves every day we wake up in our home!

Rob is a true professional and builds a wonderful product! He is thoughtful in his design and attention to detail. Along with the house we added the complexity of building a pool at the same time and Rob and his team managed the project perfectly. On time, on budget, and a wonderful home!

Zimmermann Homes built my house in 2018 and I moved into it in October 2018. As happens with any new home, there was an occasional question or two I had about some aspect of the home so I contacted the builder and owner, Rob Zimmermann. Rob was always very quick to respond and extremely helpful in resolving any issues I had. Furthermore, as part of any new build, there is typically a one year punchlist that is reviewed and acted upon by the builder. With previous new construction, I found this to be a satisfactory experience, but with Rob and his team, it exceeded any and all expectations! Rob's team ended up spending 2 and 1/2 days in my home and practically re-painted my entire home. They found little issues that I wouldn't have ever found and they addressed them completely. I couldn't be happier with the level of service I got, more than a year after I moved it. Highly recommend Zimmermann Homes!!

Built me a house in falls church. Great builder. Easy to work with and great design. Very solidly built and very energy efficient. Anderson windows, tankless water heater, tons of kitchen space. Best house I ever bought. U won’t go wrong choosing Zimmerman.

I highly recommend Zimmermann Homes for a custom build home, especially in the Falls Church City and North Arlington areas of Virginia. Their attention to detail, creativity, openness to design modifications, and supreme quality throughout the process of building a home together was unmatched. Before meeting Rob Zimmermann, owner and CEO of Zimmermann Homes, I personally toured a few hundred new homes in the area so that I could better understand trends, options, designs, and finishes in the price range that I was looking to build a new home. I also met with/interviewed a handful of respected builders in the region to learn about their approach and processes, as well as their knowledge of new industry improvements and design features. While I surely could have built a good home with many of the builders I met with, I am very confident that no one could have surpassed the quality of the home Rob and his team built for me this past year. I just moved into the new home two weeks ago and I can’t say enough good things about the decision I made. Rob is very knowledgeable about home construction and also looking to learn more each day about new ways to make a home more energy efficient, user friendly, or aesthetically pleasing. His team of professionals are all experts in their respective fields and run a very efficient operation, especially once the construction process begins. From the very beginning of the process, I worked very closely with Rob personally to design my new home to meet my current and future needs. Rob is very flexible about ways to meet expectations and wants/needs, while also keeping clients realistic about what can and cannot be accomplished easily. Working with Christina Simon on the finishes throughout the house was a very smooth process that was about as enjoyable as possible, considering the dozens of decisions that have to be made pretty quickly. Christina and her team are very efficient, and yet flexible on helping Rob’s clients stay within budget and still meet specialized preferences in areas that are most important. Her eye for colors and what “works” versus what doesn’t is very impressive. Lastly, working with Jim Jennings, project manager, was an experience that is hard to fully articulate, but I can’t imagine a more qualified construction industry professional to work with on a daily basis. Jim has a work ethic and attention to detail that is extraordinary. No task or question was ever beneath him and he always went the extra mile to either meet my needs/wishes/expectations or to help persuade me against making a decision that I may regret later. Jim saved me from making more than a few poor design decisions and was a key factor in a final product that I am very happy to own. Overall, I can say with great confidence that future clients of Zimmermann Homes will be more than satisfied. The quality construction and design provided for the cost equated to a great product for me and I’m confident it will for future buyers too.

Zimmermann Homes built our house in 2018, and we couldn't be happier! When we decided we wanted to build new, I met with over 15 local builders, and selected Zimmermann homes based on their quality, value, and customer service. Rob worked with me even before I found a lot to build on, making me aware of leads he had on certain off-market lots. Once we bought a lot, we worked with Darren to custom design a house that worked for our needs and fit nicely on our lot. His expertise was clear - I sketched out about 5 different versions of how I could see the floor plan laid out, and even his first draft was better than anything I could have envisioned. He really listened to our needs and wants, and by the time we worked through the details, the plan was exactly what we wanted. Once permitting was under way, we worked with Cristina on the design details. She took the time to get to know our tastes, and made some fantastic suggestions we hadn't thought of that we're absolutely thrilled with. The way they work is very flexible, which we loved. We changed probably 2/3 of our light fixtures from the ones we initially picked, swapping in ones we found ourselves in some instances. Cristina helped us evaluate each and make sure they work with our overall design. Once building got under way, Jim led the construction effort as the PM, and his decades of home building experience was clear from day one. Things happen during builds, regardless of planning, as anyone who's ever built will tell you; suppliers send the wrong materials, weather causes delays, or things don't look quite the same in the house as they did in the plan. The way Jim and Rob handled things when they came up is what really set them apart. They had the flexibility to allow for changes mid-stream. We completely changed our stairway design. A vanity was too big, so Jim modified it on site. A cabinet could have been designed better, so Jim modified it and Cristina helped obtain new parts. These are just a few examples - I could easily go on. Communication throughout was superb - they know I'm a detail guy, and they provided me with the information I was looking for throughout the build. Through everything, they finished ahead of schedule, the quality is top notch, and the only budget additions were things we decided to add mid-stream. Even post move in, their service has been great. They track things via DropBox, so I can upload pics or identify service items at any time. Overall, we're thrilled with both our house and our decision to build with Zimmermann Homes!

Rob and his team recently built our 4100 sq foot home in Arlington. Building a home is a massive endeavor and Zimmermann homes does a fantastic job of delivering. Rob laid out our schedule and we were able to move in early even with all of the moving parts and schedule adjustments that are to be expected with a project of this scale. Before contracting with Zimmermann, we were able to see a floorplan and actual home that would work for our lot - the owner was very gracious in letting us tour their house! As with Rob's other homes we had toured, we could see the house was amazingly well constructed and designed, and we could immediately see our future home clearly! Our first step was to meet with the architect, Darren, who took the home we had toured as a starting point and made adjustments for our lot and for our lifestyle. Darren was great at understanding our needs and putting together a floorplan that truly works for us. With plans finalized, Rob and Grant started the permitting process and moved through it exactly as Rob had laid out in the schedule. Permitting in Arlington is challenging and it was great to have a team experienced with the process. While we waited for permits, we started shopping with Christina. This entailed several days of picking out the major finishes for our home - a very daunting proposition but Christina and her team made it very easy by giving us a starting point for selections based on our style and budget. Christina and Amanda designed our kitchen and now that we're in, we appreciate their choices and design elements even more! The placement of the dishes/silverware relative to the dishwasher makes unloading the dishwasher as enjoyable as that task can possibly be! Christina also introduced us to several amazing countertop choices for our kitchen and master bath that we would never had thought of on our own. We love all of the finishes and selections Christina helped us with! Then came the construction. Jim Jennings, the project manager, has a true driver personality - exactly who you want making sure your home is built right. We appreciated all of his hard work coordinating so many moving parts and asking questions and making suggestions and adjustments to improve the design along the way. Jim has a great eye for detail and helped us think through the small items that would really make an impact in our home - from built ins, to the way the tile was laid in certain areas, to bigger adjustments like moving the kitchen island a bit for better flow in the space. There are so many more examples that could be shared about fine tuning Jim did for our home! We moved in ahead of schedule and even with the build process complete, Rob, Jim and their partners have been on hand and available for questions and small items where we have needed support as we settled into the house. Zimmermann homes is all about customer service. We love spending time at home and couldn't be happier with the home they built for us!

Zimmermann Homes built us our dream home in 2017. This was our first experience building a house, and they made it an easy process for us. Not only did they provide an in-house design consultant (Christina Simon, who is also fabulous!), but they provided us with a top-notch, "attention-to-every-little detail" project manager, Jim Jennings. From taking it upon himself to create and add a wood panel at the bottom of our dishwasher and refrigerator (without being asked because he thought it would look better - which it did!) to always being available to answer any and all questions - Jim doesn't miss a thing. The attention to detail in our home has been remarked upon by everyone who enters our house - especially those in the business! After they handed over the keys, they didn't ditch us, either! From small questions to troubleshooting minor issues, Rob and his crew at Zimmermann Homes has made themselves available anytime we needed something. They truly go above and beyond. Grant Johnson (another great member of the team), Rob, and Jim were all shoveling our driveway when it snowed last year before we moved in. You won't regret it if you choose these guys. They really think through every detail and build each home as if it were their own.

The Zimmermann Homes team did a fabulous job with our dream home. We researched several large and small custom home builders and chose Zimmermann Homes for our new build project…and we could not have been happier with our decision! The project scope was delivered on time and within budget. From the beginning, Zimmermann Homes personalized our project by getting to know us, our expectations, wants and needs. We worked directly with the architect to conceptualize our vision. The design team tailored the experience based on our style, budget and added their wisdom and expertise with each selection. As difficult as the permitting process can be in Arlington, VA, Zimmermann Homes thoroughly understands the process and works expeditiously with the county to keep the project on schedule. During the build phase of our home, Rob and his team kept us informed and was extremely responsive. The site manager, Jim, delivered an amazing home with top notch craftsmanship. Throughout the entire process, the team proved we made the right decision. We love our new home! The Reed Family, Arlington, VA

We chose to have Rob and his team build our home while we were overseas based on a reference from a friend who raved about what a great job he did building their house while they were overseas. We could not be happier with the result. We are thrilled to be able to verify that his strong reputation is well-deserved. The craftmanship and design of the home is outstanding. The architect and project manager were second to none and the house is solid and extremely comfortable. The changes made to accommodate our wishes all came out perfectly. We also loved working with Rob's team to pick out all of the finishes on the home. Not only did the house come out beautifully, it was done ahead of schedule, allowing us to move in sooner than we had anticipated-- which was wonderful. We can't say enough great things about the experience. We highly recommend going with Zimmerman Homes!

Rob & his team at Zimmermann homes built our 5 bedroom 4.5 bath 4,000 square foot Falls Church home in 2016. We couldn't be happier with the house and the whole process from design to move in. We have now been in the home for a year - and have had no issues beyond a few nail pops and even there, Rob's crew was back at the one year point to do touch-ups and any minor repairs needed. Step back to the summer of 2015. We were living in Asia and were in Falls Church for what ended up being a very unsuccessful house hunting visit. Our long-time realtor had seen a home built by Rob and had also seen our former home that we had remodeled ourselves. She knew that we were sticklers for detail and quality and instantly knew that Rob might work for us. She was right. We went back to Asia and proceeded to work with Rob's team of professionals from 12 time zones away. Other than a design trip made by my wife, the whole process was done virtually. Project manager Jim Jennings was outstanding. Everything was on time, in budget, and exceeded our high exceptions on quality. If we ever build another home, Rob will be doing it.
