One Company, Endless Possibilities
CRG Companies was established in 2010 by Preston Guyton, a local to the Myrtle Beach area, who learned the ropes as a Realtor working with many local developments and was fueled by an entrepreneurial spirit. His vision was to develop one company that would simplify the home building process by bringing together construction, real estate, and design services. From the beginning, CRG Companies operated as a team with a common goal to alleviate the stress of building a home by offering a full range of services to each client without compromising quality. Preston would draft plans by hand himself in the early stages to ensure a clear representation of the clients vision, a level of dedication which remains constant as CRG continues to expand. Today, with a turnkey process, CRG can locate and secure a lot, design a custom home, as well as handle all of the construction process including surveying, engineering, and permitting.
‘CRG’ stands for Commercial - Real Estate - Green! While we predominantly build and sell residential properties, commercial land and structures are also within the scope of our services. One of our core values is ensuring we make a substantial contribution to the local economy by recruiting talented employees to the area as well as employing those in the community and supporting our local businesses wherever possible, so our “commercial” focus extends far past the types of properties. Our dedication to building green homes has always been a primary focus for the entire CRG team. Many of the green features in our homes have been a CRG standard since the beginning, long before energy codes were in place to require them. We strive to find new methods of green building to minimize our impact on the environment as well as provide our clients with efficient homes that reduce energy costs.
Powered by a Team
Preston’s philosophy of providing a higher standard of construction and service included developing a team of professionals who were among the top in their industry. CRG invested in their employees to gain the resources and experience needed to grow from a team of three to over 40 in just five years! Each member adds a significant asset to the company and its clients as well as facilitates the overall mission of making a lasting impact on the community in both the products they deliver and the services they provide. Much of the CRG success is contributed to the employees that have worked tirelessly together to build the company, something that is celebrated often with company events as well as efforts to give back to the local community.
Clients Who See the Potential
As much as the CRG team drives the success of the business, the clients they serve are also great contributors. In 2014, this came full circle when CRG completed a beautiful oceanfront renovation and the homeowners decided to join the company! Al and Terri Nardslico identified with the quality of work CRG demonstrated during their home construction and partnered with Preston to facilitate the mission of the company. They focus heavily on developing sustainable communities for the people who “live and work here” and play an instrumental role in the continued growth of both CRG Companies and the local community.
Evolving for Greater Efficiency
CRG Companies has emerged as a leader in custom home design, construction, and real estate, designing and building over 20 oceanfront homes in their first five years of operation. They maintain complete focus on the personal needs of each homeowner, continually expanding service areas to ensure a smooth, stress-free process that follows a higher standard of quality. Services have expanded beyond typical construction and real estate to include customized carpentry using reclaimed and new products, home technology, as well as outdoor living and landscape design - a list that continues to grow with the team!
