What are our clients and colleagues saying about us?


"My husband and I would highly recommend JGB Custom Homes for your build. Jake was a total professional, was very easy to work with, and was incredibly trustworthy. We love our home, and we felt like we were in very good hands with JGB. I am a real estate agent and frequently hear stories about builders who are never around once the project begins. That was not the case with Jake. He was always at our build site, and he made himself very available whenever we had questions." - Kelly G.


"JGB Custom Homes did a first-rate job renovating our 57 year old home. Jake took the house down to the studs, added a partial second floor, installed all-new everything, and worked with the architect and the Austin Energy Green Building Program to ensure our project received a five-star rating. The house is very comfortable and my family is happy with our updated house! 

I ran into the city inspector one afternoon and he volunteered that he never has to worry about Jake's work. That was good to hear. As for attention to detail, Jake had no problem making subcontractors redo work that was substandard. During construction Jake would regularly point out details that needed fixing before I even had an opportunity to notice. 

Renovations are stressful, but Jake's unworried, can-do attitude, and his commitment to customer-satisfaction made the process much easier.

"After years of hearing horror stories about building a new home I definitely had trepidation when it came to building a new home but Jake and his team made the process a breeze. Jake's countenance, sensitivity to budget and problem solving skills are all reasons why I would recommend him to others. Jake was always willing to do the right thing when we encountered hiccups even if it meant his pocketbook being impacted. Doing the right thing goes a long way in my book and is something I have rarely experienced with construction trades." - Rob M.


"Worked with Jake Badger to remodel/rebuild a 50's modern in a historic neighborhood in Austin, TX. Jake was very professional, easy to work with and always made himself available. He has a very high level of craftsmanship and the finish detail exceeded my expectations. Would highly recommend JGB Custom Homes for a new build or restoration/remodel." - Chad M. 


"Jake and his team are focused on customer satisfaction. They go out of their way to make sure people are happy with their new home." - Kelly Brown, The Brown Paint Company


"Kristynik Hardwood Flooring has installed and refurbished over twenty custom hardwood floors for JGB Custom Homes since 2010. Jake and his team are true professionals and demand high quality craftsmanship for their clients. We continually work together to provide the custom home quality construction that he demands and delivers." - Eric Kristynik, Kristynik Hardwood Flooring


"I worked with JGB Custom Homes on a large remodel of our 1950's era home in Austin, TX. JGB came on recommendation from our architect, and we interviewed several builders for the project. We chose Jake due to his professionalism and experience. Looking back I am so grateful we had the chance to work with JGB. "

Two words describe JGB: ABOVE AND BEYOND. JGB went the extra mile more times than I can count to ensure our project was on time, on budget and that as homeowners we were still doing OK. Jake was always available to answer questions and address concerns. 

I recommend JGB with the highest confidence in their capabilities and service.
" - Trent S.


"I worked directly with Jake as he built my custom home. He was a pleasure to work with and an all-around good guy. Jake is responsive, provides good feedback and does a good job communicating the various options with pros and cons when facing key decisions. At the right times, he was patient with us, and I never felt pressure to move forward if we weren't 100% ready. Jake is open and honest if he feels you are headed in the wrong direction which I considered very helpful. And last, he sets reasonable expectations.  

In summary, I feel like Jake has my best interest at heart and is a great partner to work with on a big project.
