Missouri City is located within the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land Metropolitan area and is home to the first railroad to begin operating in Texas, the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos & Colorado Railway (BBB&C). This railroad expanded west and in 1883, connected with its eastward counterpart which completed the Sunset Route from Los Angeles to New Orleans.
In 1890, two real estate investors from Houston purchased 4 square miles of land on the BBB&C route advertising the property as “a land of genial sunshine and eternal summer.” Three years later W.R. McElroy purchased 80 acres in the same vicinity naming this “Missouri City.”
Today, Missouri City features some of Houston’s best golf course communities and is very popular due to it’s close proximity to downtown Houston, great schools and outdoor recreation centers.

Building the home of your dreams can be a very rewarding experience, especially as you watch the home’s construction process from week to week. It also means investing a great deal of time, energy, and money into this project to ensure that your home is built just the way you want it. One of the first decisions you have to make is choosing the right home construction contractor. Not just any contractor will do. It’s very important that the contractor has the experience building the size and style home that will fulfill your dreams. We are dedicated to working with you every step of the way. We strive to not only build a home that reflects your individuality but to create an experience that reflects our superior level of construction experience, service, and communication.
These are common questions homeowners ask us about Build It For Me program in Missouri City:
Custom Home Builders charge a fee on materials, on the subcontractors, and work they do. We will charge you OUR COST, and charge you only a flat fee per square feet. We have access to wholesale prices from many providers, which results in huge savings and top quality at the same time.
This is a great question! Home builders that specialize in building larger homes may be overpriced if your designs call for a smaller custom home. On the other hand, if you have a builder that only builds smaller homes, they may be over their head with a larger home which will mean headaches for you down the road. I am happy to state that we have had experience building many different sizes of custom homes. We can build the size house to fit your needs, whether it’s a basic 2 or 3 bedroom home or a custom home with 5 or 6 bedrooms.
Because we are a smaller size home builder, our customers benefit in several ways:
On the job, you are dealing with the owner and not an employee or sub-contractor. We are with you throughout every step in the home building process to ensure that your goals are met on time and on budget.
Being a smaller company means we are on the job as you hired us to be not running around to a dozen other projects and trying to keep them all straight.
We know that the biggest problem between homeowners and builders is poor communication. Our customers have told us that they feel more comfortable working with us because we take the time to listen to what they are saying and act accordingly. Our strongest point is our ability to maintain outstanding communication between homeowners and our sub-contractors which makes a strong well-run team all working towards the same goal – quality custom home in Houston.
The earlier the better! In building a custom home, there are literally thousands of decisions that will have an effect on the successful completion of your home’s construction. If I can get into the earlier planning stages with you, I can get a better feel of what is important to you and what your wants and needs are. The earlier we can get together, the better we’ll be able to make decisions throughout the home’s construction process.
