It’s been a great year so far at JEFFCO Development. We’re honored to work with great clients and partners as we complete projects in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Our team is also excited to expand into luxury residential home construction at the Delaware shore.RobbinsFam

This time of year, I love that I have the ability to look back on what we’ve been able to accomplish. As president of JEFFCO Development Corp., and managing member of the JEFFCO Remodeling, I can say that I am committed to accomplishing the impossible every day, which is complete and total perfection.

As a lifelong Washington DC native, I have had the pleasure of being a part of the transformation in residential and commercial development in the region. I’ve always been enamored with the concept of building and developing a client’s dream into reality.

In high school and college I loved being outdoors and was interested in construction. I held summer carpentry internships with local building firms and really enjoyed myself. Our family moved to Bethesda where I attended Walt Whitman High School (Go Vikings!), then set off to Vanderbilt University.  After college I went to work for Blake Construction Company in the property management division and then to Richmarr Construction Co. where I learned the skills for effective project management.

It was great coming home to Bethesda and I marvel at the stories of the families for whom I do work. The first projects for JEFFCO Development were two single family homes in Bethesda.  Constructed in less than a year, I still marvel even now at the architecture and solid foundation they rest on. It makes me so proud to see many families that have lived in each. Being a part – even a small part – of a family’s story is humbling.

Since then we’ve been able to work in collaboration with top architects and designers on truly inspiring custom builds and renovations, like the Canal Mule House in Georgetown, Luxmanor Road, and a gorgeous luxury spaces at Split Creek.  This time frame spans some 35 plus years.

I’ve found work-life balance in training as an Ironman triathlete , as triathlon has been a huge part of my life for the past 6 years. Planning and training starts my days off in such a positive and clean, healthy way – it makes me stay focused and present for my clients. I am training at present for the Ironman Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii in October as part of a fundraiser for the Crohns and Colitis, a charity we care about and support. I earned this honor as achieving the number 1 fundraiser in the entire US for this charity. My eldest son and brother have the disease and I’ve taken it upon myself to be an ambassador for this cause, working one day for a cure.

I’m pleased that our team has been able to maintain the high standards and quality in our work since 1985. I’m excited about what the rest of the year brings.
