The RK Junior brand is instantly recognizable in the visual character of our homes.
These beautiful creations stand out even in Nashville, a city where custom design, modern architecture, traditional aesthetics, and invitations to creativity all result in a city rich in incredible homes and diverse styles.
But the homes we build are only part of what identifies our brand. When Ron Kelley Jr. started the business in 2011, his mission was to be an industry leader by solving some of the longstanding conflicts that have come out of the construction industry. Whereas most builders try to keep the client at arm’s length, RK Junior invites clients into a fully transparent business relationship in which clients are involved throughout every step and decision of the building process. As one client once said in fond reminiscence, “It’s almost as though I got to build the house myself, but without ever having to pick up a hammer.”
Superb performance, excelling in the design and quality of homes, and operating with full transparency so clients always have their questions answered and never experience the nail biting nervousness that tends to accompany home-building, these are the primary identifiers of the RK Junior brand. The result? Immense client satisfaction has allowed RK Junior to go from a 2011-era start-up to a state-wide recognized name, all from satisfied client referrals.
Your Goals Are Our Promise
You have a dream of what your perfect home looks like. Our promise to you is our ability to listen to you, ask the right questions, and work together to make your dream a reality.
Every staff member at RK Junior Development Group is connected to the deeper mission of improving our community, fostering healthy relationships, and encouraging a transition of the construction industry into one that puts service at the forefront. Our mission is to live those values in every project we take on.
ACHIEVED THROUGH TRANSPARENCY
Thought to be the most accessible construction business model innovated yet, RK Junior's Cost-Plus system is fully transparent. It empowers clients to enjoy a productive, positive relationship with our team, one that results in the exact home they want, precisely designed to meet their needs. This model works, and it’s already being replicated by other builders across Tennessee and the South.

“I initially met Ron through a mutual associate. I immediately felt a level of comfort in his integrity, which for me was extremely important. Once I recognized this comfort, I toured and inspected a number of his projects and recognized the high level of quality and detail he placed in all of his projects regardless of the price point."
Lee Molette - CEO at Frank Stanton Developers
“I met Ronnie over 5 years ago as I was bidding out my first flip. As a developer and Real Estate Affiliate Broker, I was for a GC that understood the big picture. Over the last 5 years, Ronnie and I have completed 8 projects to date, totaling nearly $3 Million, and each one has been better than the last! When you work with Ronnie, you are working with a true vested partner.”
