St. Louis, MO
Custom Home Builder
Brand & Website Design
Attracting higher-end customers and generating more leads through a new brand and updated website.
Jeff Bogard, the owner of R.E.A. Homes, and his team, have led home building and development projects throughout greater St. Louis and surrounding areas for more than 30 years. The R.E.A. Team specializes in high-end, custom-built homes in some of the city’s most picturesque, high-end neighborhoods. As a second-generation home builder in St. Louis, Jeff understands the needs and wants of today’s home buyers.
A modern and up-to-date brand that better represents R.E.A.’s primary focus: High-Performance Luxury Homes℠
What it means:
R.E.A.’s new website, social presence, and marketing materials have increased the number of custom-built homes by instilling confidence in new and long-term customers. During the rebrand, it led to 3 new renovation projects and 2 new construction projects.
R.E.A. Homes needed help standing out in a crowded market of custom home builders. Between their years of experience and extensive portfolio, they had the leverage required, but needed help communicating that to their customers.
Before creating an inbound marketing strategy, we needed to redefine the target market and ensure R.E.A.’s brand spoke specifically to them—from a content and visual standpoint.
Their current brand’s look and feel lacked a strong first impression and didn’t represent the premier homes they were building and/or renovating. In order for R.E.A. to attract more higher-paying leads, they needed a brand refresh and to create consistency throughout their website, social channels, and sales and marketing materials.
“We don’t just want to build homes and sell them. We want customers for life who will refer R.E.A. Homes to others, and whose family will build again with us the next time. We’re in it for the long-term relationships.”
