Nick comes from a long line of great builders. His father built homes and performed real estate development, and his grandfather and great-grandfather built churches across the southeast. Nick graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering and spent several years in the corporate world working for Civil design firms, gaining knowledge in budgeting, design, structural design, management and site design. He also obtained his Professional Engineering license. He reflects, “For some reason, this just never felt like it was hitting my buttons.”
His professional life soon changed course. Several years ago, Nick and his wife, Rachel, began dreaming about building a home. Nick drew the plans and built a gorgeous home. He laughs, “Friends, workers and UPS men would come by and always comment on the home saying how unique and pretty it was. Over time it hit me. I thought, ‘I might have something here. If I can come up with timeless and unique designs, I believe there is a market for people wanting that, and I can fill that void.’” Things progressed quickly, and Nick started his incredible company, Iron Point Construction.
Nick is smart, kind and confident, and genuinely cares about his clients. He says, “I care about them, their home, and their experience during the process. I am not out to try and make a lot of money. I often tell people that I left a stable and modest-paying job to dive into the wild world of real estate!”
Iron Point Construction promises a level of professionalism that is rarely seen in the construction industry. He offers a turn-key package, which can include everything from initial lot purchase to house design and layout, construction, paint colors and interior design. “I believe clients can expect a smooth process. I jump in and take the bull by the horns to make things happen, all while working hand-in-hand with my clients to make certain they are instrumental in the process.” He adds, “A small and fun thing some clients might enjoy is a live-feed camera onsite! They can check in at anytime, see progress on their home and even create a cool time-lapse video of their house being built!”
Though Nick works solely as the operator of Iron Point Construction, he says, “I rely heavily on my wife’s opinions on the layouts and interior design elements of a house. She has a great eye for that! I have worked with several architects in the Jackson area and consider them an integral part of the team. Another key component to the building process is the bank. I have strong relationships with several lenders in the area and understand that money is always a hot topic when building a house. Being able to sit and speak with a reliable and trustworthy lender is something I can discuss and set up for any client.”
Finally, Integrity is at the core of Iron Point Construction. “Without it, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night,” Nick says. “We are called by God to be honest and forthright and I do not take that lightly.”
Iron Point Construction is the perfect partner if you are looking to build a beautiful home. Working with Nick is a dream, as is the final product. “I believe the most satisfying moment is at the end of all the hustle and bustle of construction, standing at the front of a client's dream home with them, cutting the red ribbon to signify the completion, and seeing the excitement and joy on their faces.”

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in that grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."
