Rave Homes is a family owned business that has been building throughout the Midwest for over 30 years. We are a company that specializes in residential construction, commercial construction and land development.

In 1982 Marti Rave had a vision

Over the past 30 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, Washington and Dunlap. 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 30 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.


Over the years Rave Homes has not only been busy building houses, we have also been busy building commercial properties as well. Rave Homes builds various commercial properties including apartment complexes, hotels, assisted living facilities, office buildings and retail stores. With the same enthusiasm for quality craftsmanship on our residential side, our commercial buildings deliver the same dedication and results.


”I would highly recommend building with Rave Homes. I found Tanner and Kyle very responsive to all my needs before the contract was signed and throughout the building process. In most cases they responded within an hour. The attention to detail was excellent and I ended up with a well built home that I am proud to be living in.”
“Three months in my home that began riddled w/weather related delays prompting schedule-shifting concerns; I’m overwhelmingly taken aback by the craftsmanship, and attention to detail prominently displayed in the finished home. Equally impressive were the RAVE team ability to listen and conceptualize visions voiced and seamlessly tie it into an existing design resulting in a harmonious retreat. Eye catching features pointed out by visitors are; open easy flowing design that’s symmetrically balanced, feature wood burning fireplace mirrored by a smartly designed entertainment kitchen, along w/subtle features like rounded wall-corners throughout, space multiplying pocket-doors coupled w/the ambiance of natural light via energy efficient windows, skylights & solar-tubes. Throughout the entire endeavor; contract, design, construction, closing and continued through to finishing-work the Rave team has been first rate. I’m extremely happy w/the outcome such that I’ll refer the Rave team as a premiere construction firm to my family and closest friends. In short my experience has lead me to view RAVE as a Reliable Added Value Enterprise!”
“My husband and I enjoyed working with Marti Rave. We were under a tight time frame to get into our house because of a pending arrival of a baby and he and Rave Construction were able to get our home completed within the specified time quoted. The quality of our home is excellent and continues to provide us with a comfortable, beautiful place to live.”
“Illinois National bank has used Rave Construction for many projects and would recommend them for any of your commercial, residential or retail needs. They are very professional and are easy to work with. They work well with change orders and are quick to the job site if you have any questions or concerns about your project. We plan on a having a long relationship with Marti and Tanner Rave of Rave Construction.”
“I would like to express my sincere thanks to you and your team at Rave Homes. Not only did you design beautiful building, you managed the project to insure quality work was done in a timely and very organized fashion. You provided the finest end to end service and far exceeded my expectations. You solve problems before they become problems and look ahead to make sure permits are secured and contractors lined up as the work progresses. I couldn’t have been happier with the entire process. Thank you for taking such great care and personal interest in our project.”
