Sage wisdom doesn’t just happen by accident. It comes from the collective expertise of Sage Builders’ seasoned professionals, who bring more than 75 years of construction savvy to the table. General Contractor Mark Huffman and CFO Paul Whitaker have each been in the construction business for over 30 years. Combine that with the award-winning ingenuity of local plan and interior designers and architects, and you have an unbeatable team of experts. All under one roof.
