Betsy's Story

Betsy Braddock moved to Atlanta as a child in 1977. She went to college at the Georgia Institute of Technology and was a member of the Phi Mu sorority. After earning her degree in Management with certificates in Finance and Building Construction, Betsy went to work in commercial real estate for Post Properties, Inc. She worked her way up through management and was passionate about opportunities for challenge and growth. After this, Betsy joined her father at his remodeling company in 1999. Here, Betsy saw an opportunity to move Braddock Built Renovations to the coast of North Carolina in 2007 and is now the sole owner. Her award winning company is one of the only construction firms specializing in renovations in the coastal Carolinas. These many years have only added to Betsy’s passion for her job—helping people is one of her primary objectives in life. In her view, helping people with one of their most cherished assets (their homes) is her significant contribution to her community. Betsy is an incredibly active member of her community and serves on many boards and committees including the Property and Grounds Committee, the Flower Guild, the Columbarium and Memorial Garden Committee, and the Brunswick County Home Builders Association. Betsy is a proud single-mother and dog lover. Beyond parenting, work, and volunteering, Betsy enjoys golfing, gardening, entertaining, working out, walking the dogs, reading, and traveling.

Cathy's Story

Cathy began her career in management and customer service. She quickly fell in love with helping people understand their wants and needs and finding the right products or services that suit them. The connections she made with her clients was and continues to be her biggest passion. In 1999, she got the opportunity to join Ernie of Ernest G Crews Construction, one of Brunswick County’s premier custom home builders. She had already decorated and built numerous homes of her own and the skills she learned while doing so were put to good use on Ernie's team. After 24 years of learning from what Cathy considers as one of the best in the industry, she has established herself as a proficient construction planner and coordinator. When Ernie decided to retire, Cathy was not ready to stop doing what she loved. So when her friend and colleague, Betsy Braddock, decided to venture into custom home building, she was on board from the beginning and “Braddock Built Custom Homes” was born. Betsy and Cathy have the same vision in mind: to make sure their clients are taken care of and get exactly what they are envisioning for their home, whether it's a renovation or a new custom home. When not working, Cathy enjoys reading, gardening, spending quality time with her family and friends, and going to the beach; especially to watch her granddaughter Bella surf!

What our Clients are Saying

“When it's time to upgrade or renovate our home...we immediately call Braddock Built! We are thrilled with the results of our recent kitchen upgrade! Betsy brought it all together seamlessly, from the design advice...to the timely manner in which the project was completed. It's hard to find a contractor with a higher standard of quality or a more complete commitment to 'customer satisfaction'.”

The Rowells (Ocean Isle Beach, NC)

“Betsy from Braddock Built Renovations completed a renovation in our kitchen, living room, and dining room. We had a wall in place that we wanted removed. Betsy came in and was able to help us come up with ideas we never would have thought of on our own. She helped us envision what our new space would look like. Throughout the process, everyone who came to work in our house was professional, clean, and helpful. We felt safe allowing everyone into our home. The work was completed on-time and under budget so we were able to do more than we originally planned. We highly recommend this company!”

D. & P. Zanone (Calabash, NC)

“Working with Betsy Braddock and her company Braddock Built Renovations was a delightful experience in home renovation! Betsy and her team completely remodeled our beach cottage including creating an amazing custom-built kitchen, an open concept area between the kitchen, dining area, sun-room, and a beautiful restoration of the 30-year old grass-cloth wallpaper. Betsy has a wonderful planning method of getting to know her customers through several preliminary visits, friendly dialogue, and her own wise design suggestions--all of which makes the final construction plan very detailed and totally in harmony with our needs and wants. Then, Betsy delivers every detail in a big way! We were completely amazed and enchanted by the finished product of our newly renovated home. It was beautiful and functional beyond our wildest dreams. We enthusiastically recommend Betsy and her company to anyone seeking home renovation.”
