General Contracting & Renovations

When Jocelyne Melton, Owner and CEO of Baxter Group, Inc., heard that Steve Jaymes, a long-time friend and owner of Steven E. Jaymes Contracting, was going to retire, she immediately approached him to inquire about his plans for the business. Both parties agreed that the acquisition of Steven’s home improvement company by Baxter Group, Inc. couldn’t have been matched more perfectly.
