Bret was born & raised in the Hendersonville, NC area. After high school, Bret’s creativity and passion for building led him to graduate from North Carolina State University with a Bachelors of Science in Construction Engineering and Management. After coming back home to the mountains to work for his family business building custom homes, he has built his knowledge & skills of custom home building ever since. His roles in his family’s company, over the years, included home design & engineering, drafting home plans, project management, estimator, quality control supervisor, customer relations, and customer selection coordinator.
“Soon after I joined the Glennwood Custom Builders team, I quickly learned that my passion and Glennwood’s passion for creating a quality home, superior customer relations, and strong ethics were one in the same. For some, building their dream home is one of the largest investments, financially and emotionally, they will ever make. I feel extremely proud to be a part of that with them from the beginning to the end.”
Bret and his wonderful wife, Jamie, as of 2013 are the proud parents of their first son, Vance. Bret has always been close with his parents, Robert & Lizabeth, and was accompanied throughout his childhood by his two brothers, Will and Cannon. All the young Hartzog boys attended West Henderson High School before going off to college.
