Dogwood Homes is a contracting and design studio helping Arkansans create unique and beautiful spaces. We discovered a passion for bringing new life to interiors and repairing homes when we flipped our first house in Hillcrest in 2014. Since then, we’ve gained a lot of hands-on experience, expanded our services, and grown our team to help more people realize their home’s potential.
OWNER | PROJECT MANAGER
Gareth started Dogwood Homes in 2016 after spending over 20 years working for The Hatcher Agency and learning how to deliver "Outrageous Service." During this time, Gareth and his wife, Cristie, renovated and flipped several historical homes in Little Rock and North Little Rock. He realized that he had a passion for remodeling homes and working with people. So when starting Dogwood Homes, he wanted to bring that same outrageous service model he learned at The Hatcher Agency to the construction industry.
Dogwood Homes has grown into a company with two project managers, one full-time designer, two part-time designers, and over 50 dedicated
sub-contractors. Since 2016, Dogwood Homes has remodeled over 400 properties in the Central Arkansas area. Gareth is very involved with the local community having served on the board for Children's Protection Center and Big Brother Big Sisters in addition to sponsoring/donating to many other local organizations and schools.
OWNER | DESIGN MANAGER
After graduating with a degree in Business Management and eight years in the fashion industry, Cristie realized that design was where her heart was, so she changed careers and channeled her energy into remodeling her first fixer-upper home in Hillcrest with her husband Gareth. They began focusing on restoring historic homes, and she quickly found her passion in bringing homes back to their original beauty with timeless improvements. In 2016, (four fixer-uppers and two kids later), Cristie and Gareth opened their own residential remodeling company, Dogwood Homes. As the company grew, so did the need for an in-house designer. Cristie naturally filled this role and fully embraced the opportunity to guide clients with their home renovations.
Cristie offers a unique advantage to each project by not only offering guidance on design decisions, but also having the experience and knowledge of a project manager. With a vision that design can be approachable, Dogwood Homes continues to grow and offer services to make your house a beautiful home.
Randy brings a variety of experience to us including law enforcement, management, insurance, and remodeling. He met Gareth many years ago when they both worked at The Hatcher Agency. Randy began his construction and remodeling career as a project manager for the Hatcher Agency—overseeing building renovation for numerous commercial buildings and residential projects. He has been part of the Dogwood Homes team since 2017 and will be a face you see from beginning to end on your home project.
