About Core

Our Story:

In 2018 Junior and his wife, Vickie took the leap of faith and followed their passion for creating amazing homes, and launched Core Homes.

Our homes are built with an engineer’s eye for going the extra mile and handcrafted attention to detail. We never settle. When buying or building your new home you shouldn’t have to either.

As our family of Core homeowners grows, and as we expand our offerings of communities, lifestyle-driven homes, and neighborhoods we seek to be a positive steward of Chattanooga’s great natural beauty and charm.

As always, we strive to be Chattanooga’s New Home Builder.


To build exceptional homes, outstanding communities, and trusted relationships.



We Live Here, Too!

At Core Homes a “life well lived” includes giving back to this wonderful city and the surrounding areas we call home. We value giving back to the community and contributing to the place that has supported our growth. We hope to be a positive steward of Chattanooga’s beauty and charm. We know whether it’s through charitable donations, volunteering, supporting local initiatives, or other community engagement efforts, these actions can contribute to the overall well-being and vibrancy of the place we call home.
Thank you, Chattanooga,

St Jude Dream Home Giveaway

2023 St Jude Dream Home – Harrison, TN

In July 2022 the St Jude team reached out to Core Homes in their search for the next Dream Home builder. Being a fairly “new” builder, we were both extremely honored, and a little bit nervous about the prospect of building such an important home!

But St Jude believed in us, and we whole heartedly believe in the St Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s mission to save children and families battling childhood cancer. Our subs, trade partners, and community partners amazed us with their generosity and enthusiasm for the project. Every day we had new stories of how everyone was going above and beyond to make the campaign a huge success! We sold out tickets to the home before the giveaway. A huge win for St Jude!

What an amazing experience it’s been! We look forward to many years of partnership with the folks at St Jude!




St Jude Depot Dash 5k and Fun Run

As part of Core Homes’ commitment to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s mission, Core Homes launched the first annual St Jude Depot Dash 5k and Fun Run fundraiser. The race is held in conjunction with Ringgold Georgia’s 1890 Days Jamboree.

Along with partners, Lansing Building Products, FirstBank, and Business Water Solutions the first race was a huge success. We raised over $6,000!

Many local sponsors ensured the runners, joggers, and walkers all had a great morning.

Every Christmas season we try to knock down The Room at the Inn’s wish list.
What a wonderful group of women working to help women and kids get to a safe place to live!

Sometimes it’s small gifts for the goodie closet, Christmas stockings for residents, health and beauty aids, or cleaning products – it all goes to such a great cause!
