Rob moved to Northern Virginia in 2005 and has been actively involved in many areas of construction and real estate ever since. He worked as a project manager for Ryan Homes, and later built homes alongside two other custom builders. In 2007, Zimmermann Homes was established and he began to venture on his own with land acquisition, spec homes, rental properties, bank foreclosures, and most importantly building custom homes and additions for local clientele! There he found his niche and diligently continues to work hard to be one of the area's best custom builders. Rob graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Finance and has a concentration in International Finance from the University of Antwerp in Belgium. Born and raised in Connecticut, he is now happily married and residing in Falls Church with his wife Meghan.
Meghan met Rob in 2009 and the couple married soon after in the summer of 2011. Meghan grew up in a great family outside of Ocean City, New Jersey. She graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Elementary Education and from George Mason University with a Masters in Initiatives in Educational Transformation. Meghan relocated to Virginia to teach 4th grade in Fairfax County in 2005. Now working with Zimmermann Homes, Meghan has become a valuable part of the team and the company's success. As a licensed Keller Williams realtor on the Three Stones Residential team, Meghan both finds properties for Zimmermann Homes clients as well as sells homes for the company and its clients. Other roles include bills payable/receivable, record keeping, tax prep, and marketing.
