About Us


When we started Redwood Homes, we wanted a name that characterized both our mission and the quality of the homes we build. Smith and Keables both have ties to Northern California – home to the famous Redwood forests. Redwood trees are some of the oldest, most resilient trees in the world. Likewise, our mission is to build homes that stand the test of time using innovative design, high-quality materials, and adhering to local and national building codes.


Redwood Homes Co-founder, Jordan Smith - General Contractor

Jordan Smith

Jordan got his start in the construction industry in 2006 as a cabinet builder. While studying engineering and architecture, he worked as a draftsman, then a project coordinator/designer. In order to combine his passion for design and construction, Jordan became a licensed General Contractor. Prior to starting Redwood Homes, he worked as a project manager for a home builder in Charlotte.

Jordan co-founded Redwood Homes to build comfortable, reliable places for individuals and families to live because his family is his #1 priority. When Jordan isn't with his wife and daughter or building homes, you'll probably find him on a golf course or in the mountains.
