Please let the decorator know how much I appreciate their talent and passion in decorating… I’m getting my dream home.

Joe & Jean Munro

We would like to express our appreciation in the way that every member of the (HAFH) organization professionally & expeditiously performed their respective jobs.  From our realtor, Dennis, through the design selection options with Sarah to construction team members of CJ Sullivan & Rick Peach, each & every person made our transition from a home to a condo in Deer Brook a pleasure and as effortless as possible.

CJ & Rick were very helpful & accommodating.  Time & again, each made it clear that their goal, aside from the construction of a quality condo, was our satisfaction & ‘happiness’ w/the work.

Many thanks to the entire group, from Hugh down to those that made our condo the beautiful one it is.

From the day I walked into the model home [at Deer Brook Estates] I knew it was the house I had always dreamed of.   The beauty of the home was I could change different things that would fit our needs. The builder, Hugh Fisher, worked with us with the changes we wanted to make without any problems.  There were so many choices between cabinetry, flooring, tile work, granite, etc. that each home is so unique.   The whole building process was smooth and we had never built a home which was brand new but it was a exciting and fun experience. If there were any problems or concerns they were dealt with immediately.

I’ve always believed your home should be your sanctuary and find comfort and peace and that is exactly what a Woman-Centric home here in Deer Brook does. Everyone that comes to my front door and steps in says this is a beautiful and unique home. I take that as a real compliment!

My experience with Hugh Fisher and building my home at Deer Brook was one of the most pleasant experiences I have had.  I am an Interior Designer and have very high standards for quality and workmanship and my home exceeds both of those requirements.

In addition to the physically appealing aspect of my home…the emotional support I received during the process of building and after was so unexpected and personal.  I was going through a divorce and lost both of my parents and Mr. Fisher and his family could not have been kinder they brought food and attended both services.  Being in this business that kind of personal treatment is rare and is a testament to his character.

The two years I have spent in my new home have been such a great experience each time I have had a question or concern it was met and solved in a timely fashion – again rare in this industry.  I have nothing but praise for Hugh Fisher and his team.

After selling a large Town House we were looking to downsize.  We wanted a condominium and wanted a unit that lived like a house.  We were very happy to discover Whispering Pines in Deer Brook.

Upon looking at the model we were very impressed with fit and finish.  Features of the Woman Centric design made the unit even more appealing.  We also liked the quality of everything in the unit such as standard granite and crown molding.  In fact, items considered standard were greater than those offered elsewhere.  Two big pluses for us were the large two-car garage and the full basement.

Once we selected the version of the model we wanted, the rest was easy.  We worked with the Hugh Fisher to select initial options and upgrades.  We then worked with the Sarah Fisher to select other options, colors, tile, granite, kitchen and bath design, etc.  The choices offered were significant and made the task easy.  Sarah provided excellent design advice.

After a long delay due to snow, construction finally got underway.  I visited the property regularly and was always greeted warmly and was shown progress on the unit and was given completion date updates.  Although we were living in Florida, we always felt that we were “in the loop” as construction progressed.

Once we moved in, we found a very active and friendly community.  We have monthly men’s breakfasts, ladies dinners, group golf outings and group travel.

After moving in we experienced very few, very minor issues which needed attention.  Everything was handled quickly, professionally and to our satisfaction.

The location of Deer Brook couldn’t be better.  We enjoy quiet, rural living but remain a short drive to Newport, Providence and southeastern Massachusetts.  There are several fine golf courses close by.  If casinos are part of your enjoyment, the Connecticut casinos are a short drive away.

For us, life at Whispering Pines in Deer Brook is wonderful and we are so happy with our decision to move here.

Jim & Nancy Ryan

At Deer Brook we have found a true sense of community with friendly and welcoming neighbors. It’s an easy lifestyle of country living but with easy access to everything.

The grounds are ideal for walkers and there are several casual groups for golf, and other get-togethers.

We were so pleased with the various options.  From our experience it’s easy to see that the focus is on convenience and a very high quality of workmanship.

Joan & Art Pintauro

I discovered Deer Brook after speaking to a resident of a retirement development in Wakefield. He gave me directions and I was on my way.

The model had all of the features my husband and I wanted in our home. The Women Centric Idea is great.

The kitchen is perfect for working and not wasting steps. I have more cabinets and drawers than I have ever had.

We love our double sided fireplace and beautiful sun-room. The master bedroom and bath are perfect. I have closets and storage spaces everywhere. The whole house is perfect and we are very pleased.

Steve Marsocci was our salesman and was readily available whenever we needed him. We had many questions and wanted to see the model for reference many times and he was there for us.

Hugh Fisher worked with us when we had any questions or changes to make. He helped us change a few things and combine plans. His daughter Sarah Fisher was a great help in our choosing colors, tiles, cabinets, floors and fixtures. Everyone seemed to have all the time we needed to do this major thing.

We have been in our home for three months and now when we need anything looked at or corrected Connie Sullivan and Rick Peach have been on the spot to assist us.

All in all it was a very pleasant experience and we love our new home in Whispering Pines at Deer Brook.

Steve Riley & Michelle Nealon

When asked to speak about Deer Brook we were more than happy to tell of our experiences here.

We were one of the first couples to purchase and though you often hear horror stories about working with contractors and developers, our experience was fantastic.

Flexible and pleasant – two very important words trying to design the perfect home. The sales staff, carpenters and contractors were always more than willing to sit with us to discuss plan changes. They were easy to work with – offering thoughts and ideas, but most especially willing to listen to OUR wants and needs and strategizing to accomplish our goals and now our home is perfect for us.

We feel so strongly about Deer Brook, we have recommended it to our friends. It is a beautiful area to bike and walk, and friendly to the creatures where they even put “Turtle Crossing” signs up to protect the baby turtles crossing the street.

A Women-Centric project, these homes were designed with special details to the reality of everyday life. A drop off zone to recharge your cell phones, I pads, etc. and to have a place for mail going in or out. Critically placed electric outlets storage – all the little things that are so huge when we don’t have them!

Our site manager is still available to us to answer questions and to offer help long after the sale is done. They are still here for us – almost unheard of in other developments.

Deer Brook offers an exceptional lifestyle!

Deer Brook is home!

“My first experience with Women-Centric homes was when I walked into the model condo and knew I had arrived. The layout, all the amenities, the extra touches (crown molding, granite and marble, drop zone, etc) and the sun room plus the ability to customize to our tastes sold me. The fact that we have property on the side and rear where we can landscape sold my husband who loves to putter in the yard. The experience, from the moment we made our first visit to the time we moved in, has been a pleasure. Everyone we have dealt with on the Deer Brook staff, including the developer, Hugh, our realtor, Steve, the design consultants, Vera and Sarah, and workforce, have been extremely professional and wonderful to work with.

Now that we have settled in, we are just as pleased. The development is exactly what we were hoping for and has met our expectations. The unit is lovely and our neighbors are terrific. The surroundings are serene. We love the open space and enjoy watching the deer frolic in the meadow.”

Three years ago I decided to make the biggest decisions of my life and begin looking for my first home.  I wanted my “dream” home and had a large checklist of all the amenities that I wanted and I would not settle and or compromise until I found the perfect property.

While browsing the internet I saw an article about some new buzz called “women centric” homes that are designed by a woman from a woman’s point of view.  Being a 25 year old business woman- It sounded too good to be true.  Could I find a home that would be built to my specifications, which included the “small” touches that can make any woman’s life easier?

When I met Hugh Fisher it was like my dream home was no longer a dream but a reality.  I was provided with top notch service every step of the way from the contractors and site manager to the designer Sarah Fisher. I was able to have a large selection of flooring, cabinetry, granite countertops and a spacious layout with a warm “homey” feel.  There were endless possibilities and you never felt rushed and or pressured to make a decision.  The Fisher family walked me through the process and every question was answered; every call returned.

I have lived in the Development for the past three years and my neighbors are my family.   The ease of life in Deer Brook is what enticed me to buy; it is close to the city and to the beach but you are in a safe haven.
Purchasing a home could not have been anymore seamless and comforting.  I just want to say thank you for making my “dream” home a reality!

We’re very happy here [in Shadow Woods at Deer Brook Estates], the surroundings are so peaceful and beautiful.

The open floor plan of the house makes entertaining easy and everyone that comes here comments on how nice it is. Inside, the woman-centric touches, such as the drop zone and flex room, provide the storage and extra space needed to create a wonderful living space.

Harry & Mary Armen

My wife, Mary and I reside in one of the units located within Whispering Pines Condominiums at Deer Brook in Exeter, RI.   Subsequent to my retirement as an aerospace engineer, we moved to our new home in 2009 after spending 42 years in our previous house on Long Island.  We were seeking a condominium situation that offered us value and a community located within an attractive setting in South County.

In comparing price, quality and external setting, we found greater value and attractiveness here than any other offerings we examined in South County.  During the planning and construction stages, Deer Brook Development staff member{s} provided professional and personalized service.  Furthermore, unlike other developments we visited and reviewed for our relocation, we were offered the opportunity to “customize” their basic unit to our taste and requirements to an extent that was practicable for the development and affordable for us.

We have been here for almost three years and have witnessed the realization of the Deer Brook Development’s vision to transform a former gravel pit into a pastoral setting.
