Owner & President
As past-President and current board member of the Charleston Home Builders Association, and a member of East Cooper Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors, Richard knows the importance of a home at every level.
Richard believes building a home starts with a vision, not a template. He approaches every project with a fresh perspective and dedication to create a home that represents the unique needs and personality of each client. Jackson has built a team of people equally passionate about delivering creativity, quality, and service to every client.
“We are not afraid to push the boundaries of home building by trying new products and designs. After years of experience, outstanding trade partners, and happy homeowners, I feel our team has perfected the process ensuring the client experience is exceptional throughout the build. We believe communication and honesty are the hallmarks of every project.”
Director of Design
Kristine brings more than 15 years of experience in residential and commercial interior design to JacksonBuilt Custom Homes. Her passion for creating spaces that reflect the needs and desires of her clients fits perfectly with the company’s philosophy and mission. She’s also a member of the American Society of Interior Designers and International Interior Design Association.
Kristine will be working closely with clients on the design, planning and furnishing of their new custom home. She’s also skilled in design management, renovation and space planning. JacksonBuilt clients won’t have any trouble designing the home of their dreams with Kristine’s help.
“Homes are a reflection of the family’s personality, lifestyle and individual tastes. I love bringing their vision to life through thoughtful, functional and gorgeous spaces.”

Marketing & Business Development
For JacksonBuilt, treating clients like family isn’t just a marketing mantra. The company is built on a foundation of customer service and community. While overseeing business development and marketing, Kimberly takes time to connect with each and every client. Whether it’s answering questions about kitchen countertops or chatting about the kids, Kimberly believes building
relationships is just as important as building houses.
As a licensed Realtor, Kimberly can step in to help clients find the perfect lot for their new custom home or help them sell their current house. Another service to make the process smooth and enjoyable.
“Each individual house is important to us;
we take it very personally and we love what we do. Every phase of the process is just as important as the next. Our job is to listen to our clients’ needs and deliver a home that is distinctly special.”
Richard and his Jacksonbuilt Team are a quality craftsmen builder that will guide you through your home building experience from the architect, planning, and permit stages to when the last window pane is polished right before you move in. They are very professional and attentive, but also very comfortable to work with. What more could anyone ask for in a builder! We would highly recommend Jacksonbuilt Custom Homes!
The Smith Family
We chose JacksonBuilt to build our home in Charleston while living in Maryland. The communication from the team and regular picture update made the process smooth and the home of our dreams a reality. Prior to putting in an offer on our lot, Richard met with us and discussed the large oak trees on the property and how they wouldn’t be a hindrance and instead would highlight the finished product. It was obvious throughout the build that JacksonBuilt’s priorities are exceptional quality workmanship and complete customer satisfaction. We love our home and would highly recommend JacksonBuilt to anyone considering a custom-built home.
Brian and Ryan Salta
One of the best things we can say about our experience with JacksonBuilt Custom Homes is that they truly cared about our project. Richard was fully engaged and helpful during the architectural design phase of our home and was able to execute our vision. We absolutely love our new home and couldn’t be more pleased with the final product.
Gina and Dent Guarino
Our experience with JacksonBuilt was exceptional. We thought that managing a home construction project from a distance would be a challenge. However, it proved to be a seamless experience working with Richard and his professional and engaging team. First, the flow of communication was constant and informative. Second, if there were issues during the building process, Richard offered recommendations to address them that improved the final product. Each time we walk into our home, we marvel at how comfortable it makes us feel. Thank you JacksonBuilt.
Joe and Susan Spagnola
We found Richard Jackson and his staff very helpful and professional. The overall construction quality was superb; we have been very impressed with the attention to detail and the ease of working with the JacksonBuilt team. This is the third house we have built and by far the most pleasant experience in what is typically a stressful time.
Larry and Barbara Berger
From start to finish, the process was smooth, exciting, and more fun than we could have hoped. Richard’s professionalism and attention to detail are unmatched. He is easy to communicate with, valued our time, and, more importantly, he cared about the quality of our house as much as we did. We could not have asked for a better team to make our dream home a reality.
The Cannon Family
We hired Richard Jackson and his team to build our home on Daniel Island. From the beginning, they were straight-forward, professional, knowledgeable, and customer-oriented. Throughout the entire process we had complete confidence in the team’s dedication to building the best house possible for us. Every call, text or email was promptly returned, which was and is of utmost importance to us. As a team, they work together flawlessly. And, of course, Richard Jackson, a highly experienced homebuilder oversaw everything, advised us, tried to keep us on budget, and was fun to work with. The result is a beautiful, well-built home that exceeded our expectations. We are very happy we chose the JacksonBuilt team to build our dream home and would recommend them without hesitation.
Kemper and Nicola Campbell
We had an excellent experience with Jacksonbuilt Custom Homes. We were impressed by their can-do attitude from our first meeting all the way through completion. Richard’s professional knowledge and experience was immediately apparent as he worked with us through the design phase and into the construction phase. This was the fourth home we have built, and it was without a doubt the most efficient example of project management we had ever experienced from a builder. If you are thinking about building a custom home in the Charleston area, I would highly recommend meeting with JacksonBuilt.
The Shogren Family
JacksonBuilt constructed a fabulous home for me. Attention to detail was excellent in all aspects of the project, including the management of the budget. They provided guidance throughout the process and minimized the stress of building a home. There were very minimal issues but anything that was not of acceptable quality was identified by them and corrected without my needing to get involved. I would highly recommend JacksonBuilt and am thrilled with my home.
JacksonBuilt has completed more than 50 homes on Daniel Island, yet each home is distinctly different. Our approach to blending traditional and contemporary to create a perfectly unique home was highlighted in an article in Custom Builder magazine, which delivers content about business management solutions, design ideas, and product news.Read More
