Our Roots:

RiverBirch Homes has built homes and neighborhoods with uncompromising quality and enduring value since our founding in Memphis by renowned home builder Reggie Garner. Reggie’s vision was then and is still today to deliver a high level of customer service and commitment to quality in every project we undertake.
Several years ago, Jamie Hensley joined Reggie in pursuing the RiverBirch vision. Through their shared passion for building custom and speculative homes, RiverBirch of Chattanooga was established in 2012 as a standalone corporation with Jamie as its President.
Under Jamie’s leadership, RiverBirch of Chattanooga has focused on building high-end, gracious homes to fulfill the dreams of the families we serve. Our team’s skills and talents can be seen in subdivisions and custom lots in Chattanooga, Ooltewah and Signal Mountain.

Riverbirch Facts

  • Did you know?

Our namesake tree, the RiverBirch's (Betula nigra) common name gives a clue about this graceful tree's needs. It's a thirsty, wetlands-loving tree with slender, shimmery trunks and slightly drooping branches. As long as you provide the RiverBirch with enough water, and probably even if you don't, its roots will not damage your house.
