About Gregg & Rains


Our History

Jake Rains and Alex Gregg have been lifelong friends. Long before establishing Gregg & Rains Building Group LLC, Jake and Alex were kindergarten class mates and Little League Baseball teammates. Their high school, college, and initial career paths took them in different directions, but the friendship has stayed consistent. After spending several years building homes as individual companies, in May 2011, Jake and Alex teamed up yet again to form Gregg & Rains Building Group. Within a few minutes of talking with both of them, it is obvious that they love building homes for their clients and thoroughly enjoy working with each other.
