Established in 2014, RAH Contractors, LLC is a multi-family construction company run by Ronny Hecht  and Avi Elfezouaty.  Long time real estate developer in the Houston area, Mr. Hecht realized a need to better control multi-family residential developments and build a better product at reduced costs by forming a construction company focusing on the multi-family market.

In 2014 RAH Contractors began developing its first multi-family construction project from ground up.  Smart Living is the brand name for the developers’ product line geared towards the working community.  “B product for a B neighborhood”, which provides new market rate apartments in areas that have been underserved and underutilized.  RAH Contractors builds a quality product at an affordable cost.
