Jeff Raymond is an exemplary recruiter – one of a handful I have met who have the process figured out. He’ll take the time to fully understand the role you’re hiring for, and bring you qualified candidates. This will free up time and energy from your HR process!

Earl Dauley

Jeff consistently gets results and is a top echelon recruiter. His intellect, hard-work and the tools at his disposal combine to deliver great results.

Roy Evans

Jeff Raymond is the best recruiter I’ve ever worked with.

He spoke to a colleague of mine who referred him to me. We talked. Then, Jeff went out and found me my next position. He presented me with 3 different HVAC companies to interview with. They were all wonderful companies and very accommodating.

In the end, the hardest thing was picking which one of the companies I wanted to work with! 5 years later, I’m still here and have gotten promoted through my hard work twice already. Thank you, Jeff!


I have had the pleasure of working alongside Jeff in a prominent, high-volume environment. Jeff is one of the most dynamic, professional, talented, and skilled recruiters I have met in the industry. He has a knack for connecting great clients with top-notch candidates; is extremely knowledgeable, and exhibits several leadership qualities. Jeff has a drive and passion for what he does, a true champion to his craft!

Stephen Crothers

It is my pleasure to recommend Jeff Raymond for the role of Recruiter for the Construction Management Industry. Jeff has a process that is second to none. He contacted me and after some questions, found me the best job I ever had. He kept me up to date in the process and made the process very simple. I got the job and he helped with information pertaining to my interview. He cared from the very beginning and it was obvious. I got the job at Lionberger Construction (One of the biggest in the Roanoke Valley). You can never go wrong with this type of personal care nowadays and I have contacted him for more help at my current employer since then. Thanks Jeff, for the help and giving me the confidence boost I needed. I will forever be grateful. I have actually advanced myself again due to the help and confidence Jeff helped me get started.

Brian Carter

The quality of the candidates were top notch. Jeff and his team listened to what was important to be a successful candidate and the results and number of qualified candidates made it easy to have confidence that out of the presented group that we would find the right fit among them. The group kept in touch just enough to keep me informed of what I needed to know and didn’t bombard or overload me with unnecessary details. Jeff, from the outset, understood the mission and seem to have his group understand what we, as a client, were looking to achieve-in the time frame we needed. Would work with RSG again, no questions. They would be my first call.

Pierre Barbour

I did something that I typically do not do and took a cold call from Jeff last September. I am glad that I did. Jeff helped me fill 3 very important openings on my Channel Team. One in Chicago, one in Dallas and another in Orange County. During this time Jeff provided me with excellent candidates. He also managed my schedule and calendar for phone interviews and in-person interviews. I’ve been in the business as a manager for 20+ years. I consider Jeff my “go to” recruiter now based on the job he’s done.

Mark Cameli

Jeff listens to his clients. My firm was looking for an experienced Construction Project Manager. RSG’s VP of Recruiting, Jeff Raymond, delivered. He was insightful and candid throughout the hiring process. He shared his thoughts and advised on the best candidate to hire. I was extremely impressed with his market knowledge, and domain expertise. I highly endorse Jeff and recommend him to all of my colleagues and counterparts.
