Our History

Challenger Homes was started in 2000 by Brian and Heather Bahr out of their family garage and has since grown into one of Colorado Springs' most noteworthy and best-selling homebuilders through adherence to stong core values, high character, and hard work.

In 2007, the Bahrs formed Rivers Development with emphasis on land development and commercial construction. In 2014, both companies were combined as The Challenger Group, Inc.

In August 2017, The Challenger Group sold 49.9% of Challenger Homes to Green Brick Partners (GRBK) and the commercial group was rebranded as Goodwin Knight, LLC. Goodwin Knight remains a subsidiary of The Challenger Group and maintains a commitment to making life better.
