Tell us about Dogwood Homes. What inspired you to start your business? What services do you provide?

"After attending college, my first job was in construction sales, then I transitioned into IT project management. About 5 years ago, I started investing in real estate and remembered what I loved about the construction and real estate world. While working on my first investment property, my neighbor's friend needed home renovation and thought I could be of assistance. We looked at the project, and with the help of a family friend with 30 years of construction experience, completed this project as well. This friend helped guide us and helped us see what it takes to be in the construction industry. After completing these initial projects, I was inspired to continue discovering how to help homeowners turn their house into a home.

From the beginning, our mission has been to help homeowners love the home they are in or build their new dream home. All our business comes through referrals, and we have been blessed with more business than we could have imagined. Our goal is to help our customers realize what's possible and get what they dream of for their construction project. We pride ourselves on honesty and integrity.

Dogwood Homes offers full renovation and building services, from small projects like replacing bathroom flooring to full scale renovations or custom built homes. I have an amazing staff of 3 full and part time teammates along with partnerships with many other amazing vendors in the residential building industry. We are based in Smyrna but service all the surrounding metro area."

What sets you apart from your competition?

“Our main goal is not to just get in and out of your home as quickly as possible. We treat your home as if it was our own. We work to ensure homeowners are happy with their project and can truly see the value in their investment. We understand choosing to work with any service-based company is a major decision due to the number of variables related to construction, but our customers can rest assured we will always strive to do what's best for them. Our number one goal is to deliver the project successfully, and earn their referral to their family and friends, so our business will continue to grow, leaving happy customers as we go.”

What makes the Smyrna Vinings area special to you?

“Smyrna is a very special place to my family and me. Our kids, Olivia and Wyatt, were born here, and we plan to keep deep roots here, since our extended family also lives in Smyrna. We love the central location, the amazing downtown, and the ever-increasing activities and events. It's an amazing place to watch our kids grow up, and we love calling Smyrna home.”
