Jeff came to work at REE-Construction early in 2010. He has been a tremendous asset since the day he started. After years of being self employed and 35+ years of experience in all phases and all types of construction, he now has the opportunity to concentrate on carrying out the solutions to people’s property damage dilemmas.  He is a master at choosing the right solution.

The only challenge we have with Jeff is that he has a hard time not doing everything himself, even when he has a strong team supporting him.  It’s not easy being as good at everything as he is.  While we don’t designate anyone as our “favorite” project lead, Jeff is certainly in the running.
