About Us

Our Founders

Dave Pearce and Jim Smrt have been building exceptional, custom-built homes in the Reno-Tahoe area since the early 1990’s. Together they’ve built LakeCrest Builders, a company dedicated to delivering quality workmanship that exceeds expectations.
With decades of experience designing and building custom homes, Dave and Jim approach each build and design with the mindset of making every detail of their clients’ dream home a reality.

Our Construction Philosophy

Through expert craftsmanship and client-focused service, LakeCrest Builders maintains its status as the elite builder of custom homes in the Reno-Tahoe area. We work closely with our clients and construction partners to make sure that every detail of your home is built to our high standards.

No Detail is Overlooked

As far as we’re concerned, our relationship with you begins the moment you walk through our doors or dial our number.

LakeCrest Builders is committed to making the building experience as streamlined as possible. Our expertise can help untangle and make sense of the process, all the while making sure no detail is overlooked. The continued enjoyment of your custom home, decades after our initial meeting remains our greatest measure of success.

The Team

Workmanship is the skill of a craftsman or artisan. At LakeCrest Builders, our project managers are highly skilled, with decades of combined experience. Our subcontractors are the best available, chosen to ensure your home is not only an expression of your personal style, it is also a work-of-art.
