Eric Berkey founded Berkey Home Builders in 2002, and for the past decade has been building quality homes for Central Iowa homebuyers. Eric worked his way up through the construction business, gaining experience both as a craftsman and a businessman.
Eric understands the need to fully manage a project to meet a client’s expectations. He believes in a hands-on management style, open communication and is fully engaged in the construction process from beginning to end.
As Project Manager, Lori is immersed in the project from start to finish. Her focus is on scheduling vendors to coordinate timely project completion. She works closely with our vendors to ensure everyone is on the same page.
She also works directly with realtors, lenders as well as appraisers throughout the process seeing it through to closing. Her goal is to have each project turn out exactly how it was intended to.
As our Field Manager, Bret supervises the project from footings to sod covering every step in between. Drawing from his extensive carpentry background, Bret is able to manage and coordinate the many moving pieces on the job site. He ensures our vendor partners maintain the level of quality we are known for.
At the completion of each project, Bret will host the Final Walkthrough prior to closing and provide answers to any questions.
Kirby works diligently behind-the-scenes for not only Berkey Home Builders, but also for our sister companies as an estimator. He works directly with our preferred vendor partners securing pricing, accepting bids, submitting building permits and project audits . Kirby also provides estimates for customer upgrades and supports communication to the field during the building process.
Craftsman and Vendors
Berkey Home Builders employs the finest craftsman in the business. The specialized skills these artisans contribute are integral to the building process. We work with very talented people and are proud to back them with our name.
The contributions of our vendors are also beholden to our company philosophy. When we partner with a vendor it is because they are first in class. Eric’s ability to cultivate extensive, long-term relationships with vendors translates into a better value and higher quality home. Our clients and their families will appreciate this for many years to come
