About Us

Robert Ransom – Founder & Principal Owner
Robert Ransom, the son of a real-estate developer in Atlanta, GA, grew up in the construction industry and restarted a long held family company name founded by his grandfather in 1950 that once sold coal and insurance in Rome, GA. The Ransom Company continues the family tradition of exceptional customer service Robert's grandfather Pop once delivered to his clients.

Robert is also a founding partner of HelpingHammers.org, a pending not-for-profit organization aimed at supporting our country’s deployed service members, veterans and their families by providing home contracting, maintenance and repair services free of charge.

Originally from Atlanta, GA, Robert was a student athlete and graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2004. He spent the next five years playing professional baseball for the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals while performing home remodels in the off-seasons. After a career-ending injury in 2008, Robert moved to the Washington, DC area to peruse his second dream of entrepreneurship. Robert currently resides in Alexandria, VA with his wife Meg and golden retriever Patriot.
