Randy Wade

Randy WadeAs a custom home builder, Randy enjoys building one house at a time instead of production homes so that he can focus on quality over quantity. The goal of Randy and his team of contractors is to make every home they build as perfect as they would expect their own home to be. To accomplish this, Randy has used the same subcontractors for more than 10 years, and he has made sure to never cut corners in any aspect of construction. Thanks to this attention to detail and the quality craftsmanship of each R. E. Wade Home, the company has seen many repeat customers and referrals. As Randy prepares to design and build new homes, he works closely with leading architects and designers to keep up with trends in the home building industry, which keeps buyers satisfied. His goal is to stay ahead of the curve, and he has achieved that time and again. In the early 2000s, R. E. Wade Homes was regularly offering exterior options that included brick or stone with cedar shake accents, long before it was a popular finish. As a rule, Randy spends much of his time focusing on the family living and entertaining spaces of a home, such as the kitchen, keeping room, master suite and outdoor living area. He believes that if you keep the woman of the house happy, you will be successful, and those are the spaces that most women expect to be absolutely perfect.
