About Us

Our Team

BMR Homes is a family owned Remodeling and Restoration business in Homewood, AL. It was started by second generation contractor, Chris Youngs and his wife Michelle in 2004 out of the basement of their home. Chris grew up on job sites with his dad learning the craft and what it
meant to be a business owner. BMR was created with family as the focus, starting with the name: B- for his oldest daughter Brittany, M- for his wife Michelle, and R- for his youngest daughter Regan.

In 2005 Chris was called by members of his family in Mississippi to help after Hurricane Katrina. They were having a hard time finding respectful contractors to repair, and rebuild, homes along the coast. Chris was able to help countless people have a fresh start and move back into their homes. Once back in Birmingham, Chris worked hard to build a local team that he could be proud of. Now 15 years later, BMR has won 12 AREA Awards for their work around the city and is known as a positive force in the industry.

I guess you could say this job is in my blood. My dad was a contractor in New Orleans and I grew up working on job sites with him most of my childhood, essentially working in every position he could put me in. From site cleanup and framing, to plumbing, electrical and material runner, Dad made sure I experienced it all. I started BMR in 2004 and haven’t looked back since. Day to day I work closely with our Project Managers on any needs they may have regarding their different projects, I then do spot checks of various projects before coming back to the office and working on job bids. I also spend time working with Insurance Adjusters on various parts of our restoration projects so we can all be on the same page and they can have all the information they need.

I love what I do, but one of the best parts of my job is seeing the look on a homeowner’s face when we finish a restoration job for them, and they are able to move back into their home. Restoration work comes from incredibly traumatic situations and being able to bring comfort and joy back to a family that has gone through hardship. One of the best parts about working at BMR is our team! They are professional, honest and fun. We are a family company and my team is an extension of that! I love them and couldn’t do what we do without them.

I’ve been in this business for over 40 years and specifically started working in the insurance repair side for 20 years. This time has given me a wealth of experience including using the program Xactimate. This program helps create estimates and budgets needed by the insurance companies for jobs to begin and stay on budget. I spend a lot of time at job sites measuring, taking photos and gathering all the information I need to create reports information needed both internally and by our customers. I work closely with our Designer and Project Manager to ensure that jobs are budgeted correctly and running smoothly. In my year and a half with BMR I have greatly enjoyed working for a family owned and operated business that cares about their employees, while demanding excellence and attention to detail.

Accounting Manager

I’ve been in my role with BMR for almost a year now but have 20 years of experience in Office Administration and Accounting. Day to day in my job is always fun because it changes depending on what’s needed. It’s a pretty dynamic role in that I help with Accounts Receivables and Payables, but also help insure all the departments are organized and current on all projects. I’m pretty efficient with that, considering I have 4 boys at home and organization is key! I love working with a team that cares so much for our customers and each other. We get to help families restore their homes, and that’s an incredibly rewarding experience to be a part of.
