Creating communities that set the standard for happy living

How we started:

In 2018, our founding members broke ground for RP Communities. The journey towards establishment began with a handful of Chattanooga natives who combined their personal values with their decades of experience in construction, commercial banking, and residential development. They had one goal: to set the standard for happy living. For the leadership team at RP Communities, this meant leading the industry by example — through quality craftsmanship and the promotion of transparency during every step of the home-building process. From day one, we’ve paid homage to the Scenic City by embracing sustainability and maintaining the integrity of the natural landscapes on our development sites.

Our values:

We believe in homes, not houses. We believe in prioritizing the customer experience. We believe that people matter most. We believe that community is the foundation for happiness. We believe small things matter. We believe in continuous improvement.
