Marti Rave had a vision

In 1982

Over the past 35 years, Marti built homes, apartment buildings, commercial spaces, dormitories, assisted living facilities and developed land throughout the greater the Midwest area. He first started building homes in Bloomington-Normal and from there has branched out to surrounding areas including Springfield, Peoria, Chatham, Mahomet and Washington. Marti has built a reputation for integrity, hard work, dedication and professionalism while striving for excellence in building a quality product. The longevity of the company has always been based on relationships. The idea of building strong quality relationships throughout communities in the Midwest has not only been the cornerstone of Marti’s endeavors, it has been the driving force in the way he has done business over the past 35 years. As our business has grown over the years so has the Rave family. In turn, these same ideas of quality relationships, hard work and dedication to a quality product has inspired the younger Rave generation to follow in Marti’s footprints.

The next generation…

We feel that a great company is more than just the sum of its parts. In 2003 Marti was joined by his nephew Tanner Rave. Tanner graduated from Northern Illinois University and began his building career working for subcontractors and tradesmen that Marti employed. Through this experience Tanner acquired firsthand knowledge of building a structure from the ground up. Tanner eventually assumed responsibility for the home and commercial building division of the company. His rigorous work ethic, education and commitment to excellence goes well beyond a contract. In 2011 another Rave joined the company. Son, Blake Rave studied construction management at Parkland College and worked in carpentry and tile before coming on board to help Tanner as a project manager. Blake brings his people skills, design capability, enthusiasm and determination to offer superior customer experience to our clients. As the company has grown so has the need for a bigger team. In 2013 son Kyle Rave joins Marti, Tanner and Blake to round out this talented family team at The Rave Group. Kyle graduated from The University of Iowa and comes to The Rave Group with six years of Insurance catastrophe claims experience where he traveled throughout the country helping homeowners in need. Kyle’s knowledge of structures, materials and customer service makes him the most recent asset to the company. The Rave Group is in constant pursuit of quality in everything we build. We invite you to call today and meet the team at The Rave Group.
