What You Can Expect from Willow Tree

Custom designs.

Jim Garman is truly a custom builder.  He does not have “cookie cutter” plans that you must choose from.  All finish selections are entirely up to the client.  Check out our Previews page to see examples of some of the beautiful work we have done.

Superior quality workmanship.

During his twenty years as a builder, Jim has gotten to know many people in his industry, and he has come to rely on certain subcontractors who share his high standards.  He has long-term relationships with these craftsmen, and they operate on mutual respect and a drive to get the job done right.  When you work with Jim, you can expect to work with the highest level of professionals during all stages of your project.

A proven track record.

Jim has been building homes since 1993, and he has a growing list of satisfied customers with beautiful signature homes.  Over the course of that time, he has won several prestigious awards, including the Hilton Head Homebuilder of the Year for 2007, that recognize his achievements as a builder.  To find out more about the awards he has won, go to our Awards and Recognition page.

The best possible price.

Jim knows you want the best quality materials for the best possible price, so he painstakingly researches products available.  This way, he stays within budget and maintains the quality expected in a Willow Tree home.

All projects completed on time.

Building a custom home takes planning and coordination.  It also takes daily supervision and direction on the jobsite.  Jim is on each job site daily, making sure the work is done right and on time.

Environmentally responsible practices.

As a father and grandfather, Jim knows the environment is the legacy we leave our children. Therefore, for each and every project, he works to minimize the impact the home will have on the environment.

A commitment to continuing education.

Jim has always put great emphasis on education.  He believes it is important to stay up to date on all new methods of building, codes, and the latest, most energy efficient products and practices.  All of his professional designations have been earned on the job and in the classroom.  The Designations page lists the professional designations Jim currently holds.

Long-lasting relationships with customers.

The very first home that Jim built on Hilton Head Island was his own personal residence.  This home was admired by many who were looking to build in his neighborhood.  The first homes Willow Tree Low Country Homes built were for clients that became neighbors and friends.
