The Cedar and Sage Story

Built on one great relationship after another

Cedar and Sage Homes combines the vision to see opportunities with the resources and experiences to realize them efficiently and effectively. From the very beginning, we set out to operate with a purpose and passion unique to our brand of design-build custom home construction.

At the heart of Cedar and Sage Homes you’ll find a family, and a strong one. We’re committed to each other and to a vision of designing and building turnkey custom homes in a better way. As our business has grown, so has our regional network of craftsmen, professionals, and partners.

Anyone who has met Dave will tell you about his energy, his commitment, and his vision. He’s not only a builder by trade, but also a builder of relationships and community. His passion for the scenic places where Cedar and Sage Homes builds our custom turnkey homes is contagious. He welcomes clients as family friends and helps make them neighbors here in the beautiful and precious Northwest.

Dave brings two decades of experience to his role as manager and director of acquisitions and finance at Cedar and Sage Homes, LLC. He is a certified Washington State general contractor and a Northwest Multiple Listing Service real estate agent. In addition, Dave holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Arizona.

Before founding Cedar and Sage Homes, with his wife Jenn, David Gintz held leadership roles at NW Roots Construction and other real estate development companies in Washington, including JR Staedler Construction, LLC, Guild Mortgage, and Jenning Development, LLC. In addition, he founded and managed a pair of real estate investment companies and served as manager of acquisitions and finance at Metropolitan Development Group, LLC.

Ron Gintz, Operations, Sales & Marketing

Cedar and Sage Homes is fortunate to have Dave’s father, Ron, as the point person for many of our most vital operational aspects. His wisdom and his demeanor add to the culture and the continuity of our business.

Ron joined Dave in September, 2016 and has worked in numerous capacities including construction management, bookkeeping, financial planning, sales, marketing, and assisting the website design team.
