Atlanta Builder of Distinctive Custom Homes and Basements

With an exclusive portfolio of in-town homes, including Buckhead, Emory, Decatur, Midtown, Ansley Park, and Morningside, Roger Swims specializes in building executive contract homes for clients on their own lots and in finishing high-end basements.

Roger started out remodeling and painting when he launched R. G. Swims, Inc. in 1988. He later joined John Willis Homes, Inc. to gain extensive, hands-on expertise as an in-town builder. Then, in May of 2005, he introduced R.G. Swims, Inc. Executive Homes with the experience of building over 70 homes from the $750,000 price point and up.

As a custom builder of luxury homes and high-end basement finishing, Roger appreciates the importance of being present on the jobsite during key building processes to oversee the project and to ensure details are carried out impeccably. The clients' best interests remain the only priority from start through completion, and the job is not considered finished until the homeowner is thrilled with the final result. His objective is to construct the home or basement of your dreams, making the entire process a pleasure for you.

As a tear down specialist, Roger additionally provides the opportunity to build on only the most desirable lots. While many builders are forced to take good lots and bad ones to satisfy a developer, Roger, along with his team of in-town real estate agents, can help you hand-select any lot for sale to build the home you want in the part of town you choose. You will never be coerced into building on an unfavorable site because he is sitting on the lot.

Also, whether you have specific ideas in mind or require a great deal of guidance-from choosing a floor plan to selecting unique materials-you can rely upon our team's knowledge, craftsmanship, and relationships with architects, agents, suppliers and contractors to build a home you are both proud and delighted to own. We are here to help you make optimal decisions based on function, design and price with the goal of building exactly what you had hoped for and more. Utilizing a combination of state-of-the-art and ageless materials and processes, we further deal with only the most trusted vendors and contractors. In the end, working within your budget, we deliver lifelong value in a home that can be enjoyed for generations.

From laboring alongside workers for years on the job to dealing straightforwardly with executives and professionals, Roger has a trusted, respectful manner that clients, employees and suppliers appreciate. In striving to deliver every client request, he utilizes a team of expertise to describe exactly what can be feasibly accomplished within a stated timeframe and budget. He refuses to make unreliable promises in order to secure a contract.

As Roger says, "Every house I build or basement that I finish bears my signature, and I want my clients to be thrilled with the superior results for years to come. To me, securing a high rate of return is about pleasing my clients to the extent that they eagerly refer their friends and family to me. And if they ever move, they'll come to me to build the next home."

Roger Swims is a member of The Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, and an HBA Certified Residential Building Contractor. He has also completed his Earthcraft Home Builder training.

We wish to salute Roger Swims for the excellent manner in which he has handled every reasonable request that we have given him. He shows a sincere interest in delivering to the customer what the customer was promised and bought. He has generally responded to every request on the same day as it was placed, and always within 24 hours. He fixes problems! As we approach our anniversary of our purchase, we thought it timely to memorialize our thought about Roger's excellence." ? Chester and Jewelette Thompson

"I just wanted to tell you how pleased we are with the work Roger did for us. What makes Roger special is that he focused on doing the right thing. He often went beyond what we had agreed if he thought it was fair. What his approach does is give the buyer confidence that the best thing will be done, even if the buyer doesn't point out a mistake or problem. For someone like me, an out of town buyer, this left me with a lot of confidence." ? Joseph Mallof

"I have recently had the pleasure of showing several clients your homes?..and am compelled to offer my comment on the exceptional design and craftsmanship of your projects. In today's "cookie cutter" market regarding home design, it is refreshing to know that at least someone adheres to traditional philosophies that something worth doing is worth doing well. I have a background in architecture and have been in the residential Real Estate business long enough to have seen builders, designs, and styles come and go, and have never been compelled to write a letter such as this until now." ?
