“We at FORNEY + architecture, LLC enthusiastically recommend Jeff Bogard and the team at R.E.A. Homes to those desiring to construct their Dream Home and requiring “The Best”. In our years of providing architectural design for R.E.A Homes’ customers, we have found a shared passion for high quality design, attention to detail, and exceptional customer service. The multi-million-dollar custom homes we have created in collaboration with Jeff Bogard and his team provide evidence of their excellent craftmanship, quality of construction, and knowledgeable innovation. Jeff is a good listener and focuses first and always on the needs of the customer, followed by creating a “dream team” of architects, engineers, interior designers and consultants to fully develop the project. His involvement throughout the process offers guidance and assistance to homeowners in a way that is both enjoyable and efficient. Jeff emphasizes a strong focus on “green building principles” to develop High Performance luxury homes, so that the project will be energy efficient for the long term. During construction, the R.E.A. Homes team keeps decision making on-track and on-budget, and works with the client to create the best possible finished project. Jeff Bogard and the team at R.E.A. Homes delivers beautiful custom homes, out-standing service, and happy clients.”

“We have been working with Jeff Bogard and the team at R.E.A. homes for several years now after discovering we both shared the same passion for improving the home building process and green building practices. Jeff has been a loyal client that we at Smarthouse Heating and Cooling love to work with! He has developed a custom home building process that focuses on creating a more comfortable and luxurious experience for his homeowners. Perhaps more than anything, Jeff approaches every project with a set of values and integrity that enable him to deliver a uniquely positive experience for his clients and effectively separate him from the ‘pack’ of homebuilders that too often deliver an unsatisfying experience. We share this “client first” approach and would highly recommend R.E.A. Homes to anyone looking for a reliable custom homebuilder.”

We see how, time after time, his clients love the experience they have with his company. R.E.A. Homes has been a reliable customer for many years and we greatly appreciate their business!”

“Jeff gives us the vast array of information that we require to develop the most appropriate new, custom home design for any given particular project. Each new home site is unique, and Jeff would rather explore architectural design solutions tailored to a specific home buyer and location, rather than merely just develop a “generic” new home plan. While this may entail a more extensive process, it helps to ensure that each new home is truly a reflection of Jeff’s desire to create a custom home.”

“I’ve worked with Jeff Bogard on several occasions. He is always intimately involved in the design collaboration of homes we team with him on, providing a strong knowledge of the construction process. He brings his team of subcontractors into the project early on to confirm that the project will be in budget with minimal “hiccups”. I rate his follow through on completion of a project second to none. I would highly recommend Jeff for his honesty and for thright way of conducting business.”
“Jeff Bogard is a professional home builder in that he has a handle on all aspects of the process and is very detailed oriented and thorough. Working with Jeff is a pleasure and also beneficial in becoming better educated in green building options.”
