The Great Trent River Raft Race is back AGAIN on Saturday, June 22 at Union Point Park. The revival of the race in 2018, after a 20 year or so hiatus, was a huge success! We look forward to this being a signature event for New Bern for years to come. The race takes hundreds of hours of planning plus hundreds of volunteers to make it happen. One of the most important components of an event of this size is, of course, our sponsors. We would like to thank Zaytoun Raines Construction for being one of the Presenting Sponsors this year. Here is a little about them in their own words.
Providing Eastern NC with Quality Custom Homes
For almost 30 years, Zaytoun-Raines Construction Company has focused on three main ingredients—Quality, Value, and Service, before and after the sale. This formula has contributed to our continued growth and success and is the foundation for our standing as a leading custom home builder in New Bern and the surrounding counties.
A custom built home is a statement and at Zaytoun-Raines Construction we pledge that the finished product says it accurately. Our Quality Custom homes feature more than simple living spaces. Custom designs deliver limitless possibilities from rustic to luxurious facades and beautifully detailed finishes, to that extra touch, like a special door for your four-legged family member. If you dream it, we’ll make it a reality!
Quality, Value, and Service
A key to the success of Zaytoun-Raines is the attention focused on every detail of every project regardless of the size or cost of the home. That is achieved through dependable subcontractors and knowledgeable staff, “It’s my colleagues and associates who enable me to stay abreast of each project and be sure the customer’s interests are always first in everyone’s mind,” George says. “Meeting, and exceeding, our customer’s expectations is how we maintain a financially sound business.”
George Zaytoun, Jr.
George was born into the construction business and raised on his father’s job sites. He literally started at the ground level, cleaning building sites as a boy, and worked his way up through the ranks to foreman for George Sr. and then president of the company. Starting at the bottom and working his way up has taught George a vast understanding of the building process from all angles as well as the value of time, money, quality, and customer satisfaction. George upholds the highest standards with fairness and integrity and this is illustrated in his finished product, a house you’ll be proud to call home.
Zaytoun Raines Construction is a proud supporter of the New Bern community. Their community involvement includes supporting and being involved with not-for-profits including the Make A Wish Foundation, The Cancer Society, The MS Bike-A-Thon, and The Great Trent River Raft Race. They have won several awards including New Bern Sun Journal “Best Home Builder” in 2017 and 2018, and New Bern Sun Journal “Best Home Contractor/Repair/Remodeling in 2018.
Thank you for being a 2019 Presenting Sponsor!
