OVER 25 YEARS OF SERVICE
Billy Hartness Construction Company has been creating homes for families in Central Arkansas since 1987. Billy and Brenda Hartness set out with a mission to build quality custom homes for a range of incomes and tastes.
Brenda is at the helm of the company, along with her son Justin Keener, who joined the team in 2005. And though the company’s primary focus remains on new home construction, Brenda and the professionals at Billy Hartness Construction also provide remodeling and renovation services.
Billy Hartness Construction continues to build on its legacy of experience, quality and commitment to the customer. It’s those three attributes that have set the company apart from the competition over Brenda’s 30 years in the industry.
Over the years, she and Justin have been able to determine what does and doesn’t work in every aspect of their industry. This knowledge has aided them in their ability to provide a premium product on every project they tackle.
But what is most important, they believe, is their commitment to their clients. The professionals at Billy Hartness Construction work closely with their clients to provide them with the homes of their dreams, continuing to provide exemplary customer service even after closing. Brenda and Justin believe it is this dedication to their customers that has sustained them as a business throughout the ups and downs in the market.
According to Brenda and Justin, homeowners are beginning to lean into a more contemporary feel when it comes to interior design. Lighter colors and clean lines are now preferred to more ornate finishes. Though it’s not seen all the way across the board, they believe this style has become much more prevalent in recent years.
The professionals at Billy Hartness Construction have also witnessed an increased priority on outdoor living spaces for area homeowners. Large, covered porches with outdoor kitchens, fireplaces and televisions have grown in popularity. Screened-in porches, too, have become very desirable, they say, allowing homeowners to enjoy their outdoor spaces all year long.
Brenda and Justin recommend that anyone looking to build a new home consider first their needs. Even if you don’t yet have a grasp on design concepts, they say, know what is a priority for you and your family. The only way to get exactly what you want is to first know what is most important to you.
They also encourage clients to work with the builder to develop a realistic budget that can be used as a guideline throughout the building process.
In addition, Brenda and Justin recommend that anyone looking to build a home select a builder they can trust. Choosing the right builder, they say, is essential in making the process as enjoyable as possible. It’s important to choose someone you’re comfortable working with on a daily basis, throughout the duration of the project. The right builder will guide and inform their clients as they reach the ultimate goal of creating a dream home.
