My wife & I chose Rogers Development to build our custom home after meeting Jeff @ a home show in Kingsport. When we met Jeff, we had already received three estimates from other builders, and we had decided on our builder, but hadn't signed a contract. After meeting with Jeff, and reviewing their website, we contacted him for an estimate. Once we met him to review the final estimate, we knew they were our choice for building our home. The level of detail that was provided in the estimate provided a high level of comfort with the quote he provided. Compared to the quotes provided, Rogers was the 2nd most expensive quote, but with the level of detail, we felt comfortable that we would be able to get the house & quality we wanted while not exceeding the quote.
Overall, we are very pleased with how our house turned out. The built-ins, molding & trim throughout the home look great. We are very pleased with the fireplace & the built-in shelves on each side are beautiful, and we receive many compliments on them.
With regard to Jimmie & Jeff, they are both very professional & easy to work with during what can be a very stressful time in building a home. Jimmie was on site almost every day, and really was the point person with the project as it moved along. We were very pleased with all, but one, of the sub-contractors and would rate their quality of work & service very high. The issue we experienced was with the painters, and the quality of their work was lacking, and left us extremely disappointed. As we worked through the painting issue, Jeff follow-up with us to work to improve our satisfaction with the work, which included hiring another painting contractor to correct many of the issues we experienced.
In the future, we would certainly use Rogers Development again, but would ensure the painting contractor used in the past didn't have any part of the new project. Again, very pleased with the overall project & the quality of their work.
As an architect, I was very selective of the contractor to build my new house. After exhaustive research, I was attracted to Rogers Development. Their staff is most competent and professional and is equipped to offer expert advice in each phase of the project. They were able to help me control my budget through preconstruction analysis, where alternative and optional solutions were offered. Their subcontractors are carefully selected to bring not only years of experience to the project, but also the best in quality. On-going communications with Rogers Development was always encouraged and met with a courteous and professional response. My house was successfully completed and is being enjoyed daily. I highly recommend their company to anyone pursuing a new construction project.
Rogers Development produces an exceptionally built, quality custom home! From day one, the entire team at Rogers Development has exceeded our expectations. We "shopped" around for the best contractor to build our custom "forever home" and there was no question who we would select once we met with Jeff. Jeff and his team have been attentive and professional every step of the way, answering questions and keeping our project on budget and on time. Josh, our Project Coordinator, is extremely personable and more than willing to answer our questions and concerns at any time, while helping us to make the best selections for our home.
The quality of workmanship that goes into a "Rogers Home" is second to none. Their knowledge and attention to detail are evident in the quality craftsmanship of their homes. If we were asked to choose Rogers Development again... no question, hands-down, "YES!" We love our new home!
My husband and I hired Rogers Development to build a house for us in 2010. In 2012 we hired them once again to build a house for my mother. Both homes were done in a timely manner. We now have two beautiful homes that we are very proud of! I would highly recommend them! They are honest and very easy to work with!
We first met Jeff and Jimmie Rogers at a home show in Johnson City then again several weeks later at the Kingsport home show and they called us by name. The first impression was good so we talked further. They brought their elite designs to the shows I joked and said they were too expensive for my budget assuming this after admiring their designs, the quality and end products were breathtaking. Jeff said give us chance we will give you the same treatment on the budget you present to us. We agreed later on a budget and soon broke ground on our land. Jeff and Jimmie are very knowledgeable and professional. The craftsmanship of each of their crew members from start to finish from the time we first met to when they handed us the keys is unlike any of the others we encountered. We interviewed 5 different ones from pricing to actually viewing an on-site on each. These guys are not the cheapest but not the most expensive but I feel like we were treated as their number one priority but come to find out that's just how they roll. It's a family business for them and they make you feel like family by the time you finished. Thanks to all of their crew including their wives for their advice on color choices for making our dream come true on our farmhouse design. We are home!
We hired Rogers Development to design and build outdoor space (patio, pergola, stone fireplace, hot tub and kitchen). The quality and results were outstanding! Jeff Rogers has a very creative vision for outdoor space. We enjoy using our outdoor patio very much and receive compliments every day. The only negative experience we had was with the Viking hottub/spa subcontractor from Knoxville, TN (out-of-town) that Rogers hired. However, even though the hot tub/spa subcontractor was not willing to fix the problems, Jeff always found better solutions at his expense and was very prompt in responding to our requests. The quality and beauty of our outdoor space are very remarkable. We love and enjoy our view every day.
After speaking with several local contractors, we chose Rogers Development because they came highly recommended and offered services that other pros did not. We built our first and only home, so staying within our budget was important to us. The fact that Jeff provided a detailed, line-by-line estimate (when no one else did) and efficient billing system was very helpful. Rogers also allowed us to further customize our home during construction - we made several changes, bought materials, even used different subs and they didn't mind. Speaking of subcontractors - they are excellent! - this is one of the reasons why the quality of Rogers Development homes is so great. The excavators, framers, electricians, plumbing, finish carpenters, siding, and concrete were just a few of the crews that did a great job. Out of more than 20 subs that worked on our home, we were only not satisfied with one. Even though it was frustrating, that percentage is good. When we brought up concerns, needed things fixed, or asked stupid questions (we didn't know what we were doing!!) - Jimmie made sure they were addressed and resolved. We would hire them again, recommend them to anyone, and be willing to answer any questions of potential clients.
Rogers Development built our 7,000 square foot custom home in 2013. The quality of their work was evident even before we signed the construction contract. They researched and provided a very detailed cost estimate based on our specific selections whereas other contractors we spoke with provided estimates based on their normal allotments. They were extremely helpful throughout both the design and selection process. Their subcontractors were top quality. Either Jimmie or Jeff Rogers (the owners) were on site daily throughout the entire project to check on the progress. We are extremely pleased with the quality of the construction and will utilize them should we build again in the future.
***** When purchasing a new home we highly recommend utilizing Jeff Rogers. We recently purchased a home built by Jeff Rogers and are very satisfied with the home and the outstanding customer service provided to us by Jeff. He was very responsive and attentive to our requests for changes. After we moved in he has responded in a very timely manner to minor problems that needed to be corrected. His friendly and personal manner will put you at ease during the stressful time of moving to your new home.

****** To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is to urge you to choose Jimmie Rogers as the contractor for your new house in our area. Jimmie built my own personal house, and I am extremely pleased with the results. You are welcome to visit us the next time you are in Johnson City, and see for yourself the quality of work he does.
I have known Jimmie for almost 20 years and know that he is honest, fair and hardworking. He was extremely easy to work with on our personal house. He was on the job site every single day making sure that work was being completed as planned. He was conscientious and professional, and he was always in contact with us if anything had to be changed or if there were any questions concerning a particular job. He was on top of every detail of the job. Although I was very involved in the process myself (choosing paint colors, light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, cabinet styles, etc.), I could easily get in touch with him if I had a question. He always answered his phone when I called him.
I think if you choose Jimmie as your contractor, you will be very pleased. I feel sure he will make every effort to build your home exactly to your specifications, and I am certain you will be thrilled with the results.
If you would like to ask me any questions, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope you enjoy your move to East Tennessee.

To Whom it Concerns:
I am pleased to write this letter recommending Mr. Jimmie Rogers, d.b.a. Rogers Development. For the past year, I have worked with Mr. Rogers on the construction of my custom home. The venture has been a positive one. Jimmie is knowledgeable and competent. His experience has been invaluable in assisting me with the many decisions, both large and small that are part of the building process. He works with some excellent subcontractors, and the trim carpenters he uses are especially talented. I have been quite satisfied working with him and would do so again.

To Whom it may concern:
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Jeff Rogers to you.
My husband and I purchased our home at 104 Reed Circle from Jeff in September of 2004. Two months passed between the time that we made the offer on the house and our closing date. During this time, Jeff and his team were a delight to work with. They completed each phase of the building process in a timely and professional manner. I feel that he was very attentive to each and every detail during construction.
Jeff is an impressive young man, who will be a wonderful success at the endeavor because of his positive attitude and dedication to honesty, hard work and customer service.
I would be glad to work with Jeff in the future and would be more than willing to recommend that my friends and acquaintances do the same.
Please feel free to contact me if you have specific questions about Jeff’s role in the construction of our beautiful new home.
To Whom It May Concern:
We are very fortunate to have used Rogers Development to build our new home. Rogers built our home in 2008-2009 in Elizabethton, TN. We chose Rogers Development primarily because we knew they would really listen to us and work with us throughout the building project. Definitely the most professional group you could choose.
Jeff and Jimmy Rogers were a breath of fresh air from the beginning of the project. They were always willing to go the extra mile for us. We made many changes throughout the building project (decisions of our own) and Rogers worked with us and made them work. The entire building project, which as you may know can be very overwhelming, went smoothly with Rogers Development. I also chose them because we have a very busy life and wanted someone we could trust. We knew we could trust Rogers and this made us much more comfortable with the project. Any concerns we had during the project we could voice with them and they would take care of it for us. This really simplified the project for us. When we started the project we were expecting our fifth child and the service they provided was greatly appreciated as our daughter was born four months into the project.
The quality of the build they performed was also excellent. The subcontractors Rogers use are exceptional quality craftsmanship. They built an 8 bedroom home, a 5 ½ bath home for us and we are enjoying every square foot of this home. Another advantage of using Rogers use not only can they build your home to quality but they can also take care of your landscaping. If anyone would like to visit our home we would be more than happy to have you out and display the quality of home the Rogers built for us.
I would not consider using anyone else to build another home with (you must consider we will probably never leave the home we are in). Jeff and Jimmy Rogers were very honest and dependable throughout the building project. If you have any questions or need a referral about the Rogers please call or contact us.
