Building a family’s custom home is a very personal business.
Jeff has been building custom homes for over 30 years as part of a four-generation family legacy that has been building homes in Northern California since the 1930s. Jeff obtained his license in 1988.
Involved in the building of custom homes since a pre teen, heading to jobsites with his father Ray & uncles, meeting with clients & reviewing plans... on his 16th birthday Ray dropped Jeff at the DMV with a vehicle for his driving test & a daily list including material pickups, job clean ups, hardware installation & permit processing.
After a few years of college degrees & Fortune 500 experience, still earning money working weekends for his father, Jeff rejoined the family business in 1985 (including mother Peggy, a broker, interior designer & banker) to help the family business buildout several neighborhoods, develop a new custom neighborhood & many more custom homes.
Involved in the industry, Jeff has served as President of the local homebuilder’s association (North State Building Industry Association) & as a director at both state & national levels (NAHB). As a founding member of a NAHB Builder 20 custom builder group, he was able to exchange key skills with piers from 20 different non-competing markets across the US.
From 1996 Jeff’s team built & designed dozens of custom homes & developed several custom neighborhoods. His building company was often listed in the Sacramento Business Journal’s Top 25 list from the mid 90s through the 2000s. Overall, Jeff has been personally involved in the building of over 150 custom home projects throughout the region.
Today, Jeff focuses on a limited number of individual custom homes & the people who will live in them. Working with trade & supplier partners, some dating back to his first project, he continues to refine & nurture those relationships in order to produce great homes & workmanship, resulting in satisfied clients.
"I am proud to boast that 5% of my clients have been industry pros... commercial developers, production builders & large trade contractors. I especially appreciate the homes I've built for the parents, sibling or children of someone I've previously built a home."
