High Performance Luxury Home in Frontenac, Missouri

“R.E.A. Homes went above and beyond for our custom home in Frontenac. The interior of our home is filled with custom millwork and cabinetry that elegantly connects each room. Jeff Bogard and his team were great partners throughout the process making sure that our home was a great combination of luxury and comfort. We would highly recommend R.E.A. Homes to anyone considering building a custom luxury home!”                

 –  Tony and Diana S.
New Home in Frontenac, Missouri

“Our custom home was the first in-fill home in our neighborhood and required going through an approval process. Jeff Bogard and his team were with us every step of the way to make sure we met the requirements of the municipalities and neighborhood. He and his team helped us build a home that met our entire family’s needs with features like an pizza oven, outdoor shower, pool and spa, and gourmet kitchen. Luxury is not just what the eye sees, but the experience we share in our comfortable home together. We love our custom home, and would refer R.E.A. Homes to anyone considering building a custom home!”

Throughout the home building process, Jeff Bogard worked with us every step of the way to make sure we had the right combination of luxury and performance. No detail was too small to attend to. Jeff maintained constant vigilance over all the sub-contractors. Our home features solar panels and a geo-thermal heating and cooling system that has largely reduced our monthly utility costs. We would highly recommend R.E.A. Homes for anyone looking for a luxury homebuilder in the St. Louis area!””

“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.”

Marc Bluestone – President

“Jeff Bogard of R.E.A. Homes is great to work with! We at Kirkwood Stair & Millwork work with Jeff to design, supply, and install custom staircases, millwork, doors, and windows. We are able to work efficiently and effectively with them every time because of how efficiently and fairly Jeff runs his company and treats his trade parnters. 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 Bogard has tremendous experience in the industry and he does an excellent job on any house he builds. He’s a real asset to the homebuilding community. He takes care of his obligations to his homebuyers, and to the people who build them.”

Charlie Bennett – Owner

“Our office has known and worked for Jeff Bogard for over 15 years as a civil engineer/land surveying consultant, and have always found his persistent conscientiousness and unflagging fairness to be his most enduring characteristics.”

Matt Stolwyk
Stolwyk & Ferrenbach Inc.

“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.”

Barry Glantz – President
Glantz and Associates Architects, Inc.

The end result: Clients who awaken every single day falling in love with their homes over and over again.”

Kris Keller- President

“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.”
