He and his team of professionals make the construction process enjoyable by applying experience, education and technology to guide clients through the home building process.

Richard earned his undergraduate degree in finance at the University of Arkansas and later an MBA from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He got his professional start in life by working as a paid intern for Alice Walton, of Walmart fame, after winning the Northwest Arkansas Cooperative Education Scholarship in Finance. Richard then worked as a financial analyst for Tyson Foods and Alltel Communications where he credits his financial business acumen and strong communication skills. While working a full time job, Richard kicked off his career by building starter homes in 1994.
Richard has continued to invest in the education of himself and his team, which he feels is a key to his success. Harp has a long line of accreditations to his name as a builder. He holds seven designations with the National Association of Homebuilders. But being a Master Certifed Green Professional is his highest accolade. Yet, if you know him personally, he will easily pepper his builder-talk with anything that deals with his adoring wife, Brandy, and their two children, Nicholas and Isabella.
