At Kimble Properties, we value honesty, integrity, teamwork and humility, but most importantly, our company is passionate about succeeding and doing everything the right way. Our firm strives to produce quality homes, promote community equity, tackle urban blight, and propel socioeconomic growth in the neighborhoods we invest in as they are underserved with the resources that promote such developments. We look to take part in the transition of these communities and continually ensure that these changes accommodate all of the people within them. Our company believes in rebuilding the urban core of small to mid-size cities and primarily focuses on historic renovations and urban infill projects. In this context, our capital fuels the redevelopment of once neglected properties in both emerging and established urban communities and thus, creates community wealth.
