'Diligence and Integrity In Every Sale.' 

Lee Simmons Signature Realty was founded as a spin off from Ronald V. Dunn Real Estate Company on February 1, 2021.  Ronald V. Dunn Real Estate Company was a well known, well liked and well trusted real estate firm that was in business for 38 plus years.  The motto at Ronald V. Dunn Real Estate Company was 'Diligence and Integrity In Every Sale.'  Merriam-Webster defines Diligence as: steady, earnest, and energetic effort.  Integrity is defined as: firm adherence to a code of especially moral values.  The earnest effort and moral values that were central to the operation of Ronald V. Dunn Real Estate are also central to the operation of Lee Simmons Signature Realty.

To supplement the income of his growing family, Ronald V. Dunn obtained his real estate license in 1979.  After finding success as a real estate agent for 4 years, Ronald V. Dunn Real Estate Company was founded in the home of Ronald and Debra Dunn in September of 1983 in Crewe, Virginia. Ronald was the Broker/Agent, and Debra was the Secretary/Bookkeeper/Receptionist/Office Manager. Debra obtained her real estate license in 1984.  In 2014, Lee Simmons was brought on board to work as an Agent for the company. Ronald V.
