Randy Jeffcoat Builders, Inc.: The experience you expect, the quality you deserve, a family you can trust

Author: Special to CH2

The Lowcountry has been a peaceful retreat for locals, tourists and transplants for years, and Randy Jeffcoat has had a front-row seat to the evolution of Hilton Head Island and Bluffton over the last 40 years. One of the Lowcountry’s premiere custom home builders, Randy Jeffcoat Builders, Inc. is truly a family-owned-and-operated company, drawing their expertise from many years in the industry.

As one of the longest-standing builders in the Lowcountry, and a third-generation builder, Randy Jeffcoat learned firsthand from his father, who was a builder, and followed in his footsteps. Starting out as a framer, he began custom work by request, relying on his knowledge and skill to complete complicated floor plans with difficult framing features. His drive to achieve flawless designs and to strive towards perfection has kept his company on top as each project is monitored closely for detail.

“There is no substitute for quality,” Randy said. From the initial design to final closing with the client, every step builds to the next and is vital to the progress and timeline. Each project’s success depends heavily on the details and managing every move to avoid mistakes. “I take on each house as if I were building my own. My name is behind it, and I want clients to feel supported through the process.”

In this family-operated company, Randy’s wife Brenda maintains the office, assuring that the accounting is up to date and subcontractors are completing their jobs as stated. Occasionally, you will find her assisting their selections coordinator Nina Bartolotto with clients’ hard selections, a role she used to handle among other juggled tasks.

Randy’s two sons Trey and Rhett Jeffcoat also play pivotal roles in driving Randy Jeffcoat Builders. Trey, VP of production, oversees the project managers and the final walk-through with clients, while Rhett, VP of sales and estimating, meets with clients, handles the design build with clients and architects, assigns each subcontractor to the job, and works on pricing as well as handling marketing efforts and social media. “From getting a client in the door to walking through the steps of building their dream home, it takes each one of us to make that happen. No one job is more important than the other, and it truly takes a great team,” Rhett said.

One focus for the company is ensuring Randy is on each project. He initially meets with the client and Rhett and then works closely with Trey and the project managers to oversee construction. If you are coming to Randy Jeffcoat Builders to build your custom home, you get Randy Jeffcoat, which is one aspect that makes them a popular choice.

Reminiscing over the years, Randy and Brenda laughed as they thought back to where their company began. “I’ll never forget, my first desk was two file cabinets with an old door I put on top. It wasn’t pretty, but it got the job done,” Randy said. Over the years they have continued to grow and have left a lasting impression on the Lowcountry as they have completed projects in every plantation. From a simple, yet elegant Lowcountry design to multimillion-dollar contemporary design, there isn’t a style or floor plan they can’t tackle. “I never thought I’d see this company grow to the heights it has,” Randy said, “but it’s really special to see so many years of hard work pay off.”

Recipient of Premier Builder of the Year award in 2017, along with more than 70 Lighthouse Awards for outstanding homes throughout the Lowcountry, Randy continues striving to be better. In his eyes, there is always room to grow, and each project completed only advances their knowledge in the industry. He understands building a home is a big decision and one most clients don’t take lightly. To make things even more challenging, many clients are building their dream home from afar, working toward retirement and leaving their project in the Jeffcoat team’s hands.

One way the Jeffcoats put their clients’ minds at ease is sending updates of the project each Friday through a special client log-in tab on their website. “This tool has been instrumental in giving our clients the peace of mind they need by creating a checks and balance system for them to monitor the weekly progression,” Rhett said. As the initial point of contact, Rhett, like Randy is with clients every step of the way. This allows clients who live out of town to feel a part of their build.

As Randy Jeffcoat Builders just celebrated 40 years of serving the Lowcountry, they continue to have one goal in mind: custom homes comfortably. Near or afar, Randy and his team will provide the hands-on custom experience you expect and exceed your expectations.
