JMR is a premier residential builder specializing in high-end technical construction and meticulously crafted luxury homes. Beautifying the California coast for over 40 years, our award-winning team makes challenging projects look effortless, from historic preservation to cutting-edge contemporary designs. Adept in modern technologies and sophisticated modeling systems, we’ve mastered complexities that are beyond the scope of other builders – all while providing unparalleled craftsmanship and customer service. JMR partners with nationally acclaimed architects to create extraordinary, enduring homes in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Palm Desert and beyond.​

JMR  understands that a home is more than a structure – it’s a reflection of its owners, a place where memories are made and traditions honored. Often, it is also the owner’s single largest asset. For all of these reasons, we strive to ensure each client’s building experience is smooth, enjoyable and exceptional.


The art of building a custom home requires precision in the field and behind the scenes, with thorough planning and seamless coordination. For truly unique designs, it also takes continual innovation. When architects raise the bar, we’re at our best, building highly demanding projects without sacrificing personal service. Our passion for excellence has led JMR to win numerous industry awards and the highest prize of all: repeat clients and glowing referrals.




Our people are who ultimately set us apart from other builders. JMR employs incredible individuals with the same vision – to build exceptional projects alongside an exceptional team. We believe in hard work, integrity, and lasting relationships. Throughout our 40+ years of building custom homes, we have maintained a culture of collaboration, uncompromised quality, continuous improvement and a true desire to master our craft.

When you contract with JMR, your project is assigned a manager whose talents and background match your needs. That manager stays with you throughout the life of the project and beyond, forming a close professional relationship that allows you to focus on what’s important to you.
