Client Testimonials

Cogent Building Group has built two personal residences and completed nine other houses for us in a business venture that have all sold over the past 5 years.  

They delivered every house on time and within budget, which demonstrates their knowledge and experience. The attention to follow up items after move in was outstanding.  It was an enjoyable experience to work with Cogent and I would recommend them wholeheartedly to everyone looking to build a quality home on time and on budget.

Without hesitation, I would recommend Kenny Smith and Cogent Building Group to anyone building a home in the 30A/Inlet Beach area. The entire Cogent crew was responsive, respectful, and fun too!  Kenny worked well with our architect, Walton Co., and multiple engineers. All of his subs were as polite as they were talented. I also really appreciated how clean Cogent kept our job site. Kenny is a man of character and principle and that will be evident to everyone working with him. When you meet Kenny, you just instantly feel like you are with a good person.

Cogent built us a beautiful home and we get so many compliments. We literally have had guests ooh and ahh. Recently a home builder from Texas was in our home and he was so complimentary of the craftsmanship. The exceptional quality of Cogent’s work is evident throughout the house.


Our project was completed on time and within budget!

Four Years ago our home was built by COGENT Builders.  The attention to detail and flexibility in planning and design made it a very favorable experience.  Kenny Smith and his team worked closely with us to be sure the end product was exactly what we wanted.  I can truly say that after four years our home is structurally sound and not a single item that has needed to be addressed.  We have recommended COGENT to friends looking to build their new homes.  If we are to build again we are certain to use COGENT.
