R.E. Collier, Inc., Builder
R. E. Collier, Inc. Builder, is a family building and development firm which has produced custom homes for 47 years. Richard E., “Dick”, Collier incorporated in 1964, and in 1985, his son-in-law, Warren, “Dutch”, Goddard joined in to expand upon a tradition of excellence in quality, craftsmanship, and customization. Both are native Richmonders and graduates of VMI, a credential that is synonymous with honesty and integrity. They have created communities of truly distinctive homes in Clarke’s Forge, Founder’s Bridge, Lake Chesden, St. Regents Lake, Bexley and Bexley East, Westover Hills West and now Pinifer Park in Midlothian.
R. E. Collier, Inc. is set apart by a willingness to build one-of-a kind homes for clients who demand the latest innovations in home building, yet appreciate the timeless architecture of the past. “The homeowner is always a welcome partner in all phases of the construction process”, explains Collier. “We very rarely build the same home twice”, adds Goddard, “a testament to the fact that our clients are individuals with unique requirements and our homes reflect this.”
Adds Goddard, “As our company has evolved into a multifaceted building and development firm, I have gravitated towards maintaining the custom residential side of the business on which we have built a solid reputation as one of Richmond’s leading home builders. Our willingness to stay true to the design/build process I believe sets us apart. There’s nothing more gratifying than to start with a photograph or sketch and 6 months later hand the client the keys to his or her dream home. Pinifer Park gives us the opportunity to blend the design/build process with some of the most beautiful land in Midlothian. I believe you will see porches, patios, courtyards, and gardens that will allow us to take advantage of these vistas.”
