Our founder Justin Kathan envisioned building homes with soul for all of humanity. This desire was born from first-hand realization. By utilizing technology, innovation, and robotics, Justin believed he could set RA apart from other developers by changing the way homes are built and bought. By constructing higher quality homes, in half the time, and at half the cost, RA seeks to eradicate inhumane living by offering human beings affordable homes, with soul. To make this vision a reality, Justin sold his company, Joist, and poured himself into founding RA. Named after the Egyptian sun god and giver of life, warmth and growth, RA was born to improve human life for all by building the best living spaces on earth, and beyond.
