Why Gregg & Rains

The Gregg & Rains Advantage

Jake Rains and Alex Gregg have been working together for many years – starting in kindergarten as Little League baseball teammates. Their longstanding friendship and deep-rooted values are the foundations of Gregg & Rains Building Group. They daily strive to build quality homes, to run the business with integrity, and to make the homebuilding experience as seamless as possible for each client.


Awesome group of guys that build a fantastic product and they do it with a smile on their face! I would highly recommend them to build a custom home. We love our home, thank you!

Great builder. I walked through the home in the Holiday Parade of Homes at King’s Chapel last year. Beautiful home!

Nicest home I’ve ever lived in! Best company to deal with. From Elizabeth to Alex to Jake and all the subs, all nice people. Quality product from start to finish!

My wife and I have always had the desire to build a custom home at least once in our lifetime. However, we both are very particular and very detail oriented and have always had the concern of who to trust could provide a high-quality result. We decided to go with Gregg and Rains after numerous consultative meetings because we could tell they had a team approach and each member of the 4-person team had talents and abilities that complimented the other members abilities. It was evident to us a lot of thought went into how the team was put together and the process they want each customer to experience. Another key to us was the quality of the sub-contractors they have that are committed and loyal to the Gregg & Rains standard of quality. They also have a software package that keeps track of all your selections, tracks your expenses along the way to help determine where you are within your budget and it helps everyone plan as you go through the various phases of the construction process. I would say we have such a high standard of expectations that we are often hard to please, but after going through the process and now living in the new house for 4 months, we couldn’t be more pleased. They treat the process as though they are building their own house and it is evident they take a great deal of pride in providing the highest results. Their standard of providing high quality results centered around a trusted team full of knowledge and expertise is unmatched in my opinion. We highly recommend them and would definitely want them representing us if we ever build again.

Great experience start to finish! We have now built two homes with Gregg & Rains. We are extremely pleased with the quality, attention to detail and exceptional customer service. They will take your vision and make it a reality. We highly recommend them and their team and we look forward to building with them again in the future!

Gregg and Rains Building Group were outstanding. From our first meeting to the final walk-through, Alex, Jake, and the entire team were accessible and accommodating. After reviewing our plans, they made it clear that there was flexibility and that all communications would be open, accounted for, and documented. All the fears of building a custom home were eliminated by the kindness, understanding, and face to face meetings. There was never a minute when the status of our project was unknown whether it was the change orders, cost impact, or planned finishing date. When Kathy and I visit in other homes, we realize that the right decision was made when we chose Gregg and Rains.

When we decided to relocate to Tennessee, we began a search for our new home. After exploring many options, we decided to build. It was important that we worked with a builder who was flexible in meeting our needs, and that quality workmanship was a primary focus. The best decision we made was choosing Gregg & Rains. Despite being out of state during the build process, the Gregg & Rains team were responsive, great listeners, and valued experts in their field. If you are looking for a builder who has high integrity and delivers a quality product, we highly recommend Gregg & Rains.
