Guess who’s on HGTV?  We were contacted earlier this year by HGTV about a new series Cousins Undercover, with John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino from the Kitchen Cousins.  They seek out deserving neighborhood heroes then surprise them with amazing home makeovers. 

We invite you to watch as John, Anthony, community members and RGH project managers Paul Vicari and David Hume upgrade this classic home and touch the lives of an amazing family.  The show airs this Sunday, October 28th at 8pm EST. 

This was such a privilege for RGH to work with John, Anthony, and all the staff from HGTV.  Enjoy the show!

Many homes at the Jersey shore still need work done from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.  Most towns along the Jersey shore have adopted a different building permitting process, which takes a bit longer.  If you are planning on remodeling your home, we encourage you to begin obtaining your building permits.  From today, March 18th, there are 70 days to Memorial Day.  Let’s start rebuilding our beloved Jersey Shore.

Pink website: RGH’s ongoing effort to support and raise awareness for cancer and breast cancer


So many lives have been altered or lost to this horrible disease. As a company, RGH wants to pay tribute to and remember those who lost their battle with breast cancer, and all forms of cancer, and honor them by supporting efforts and organizations working to find a cure.  Through early detection and advancements in medicine and treatment, many lives have been saved.  With an ongoing effort to support these advancements, more lives can be saved.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer. Breast cancer deaths, however, are decreasing probably due to finding the cancer earlier and better treatment. Right now, there are more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
