Meet John…

When building a new home, you want to know that your builder is listening to you, giving you options available to you, and making decisions that are in your best interests for both time and cost management. You want someone in your corner like John Riley.

A U.S. military veteran, John moved to Upstate South Carolina in the mid-1990s, working as a construction supervisor. Over the last three decades, he worked with some of the most prestigious and renowned luxury builders in the area, including Gilliam Construction and Gabriel Builders, creating beautiful homes at locations like the Cliffs of Glassy and private lots all over the Upstate. With expertise in nearly every aspect of home construction—from general construction to high-end renovations, inspections, and management—John is a wealth of information and experience in the industry.

It’s that expertise and experience that John is able to leverage for our clients building with Haven Valley, through an address book of some of the best local subcontractors and craftsmen, and an understanding of the processes, challenges, and opportunities of building a new custom home. With a focus on building trust with his clients and serving each at a personal level, John is committed to providing a transparent and enjoyable homebuilding experience for all of those who come into the Haven Valley family.

My job is to hear my clients out and give them what they want and need in their home. After all, it’s not a house that we are building; it’s a lifestyle.
