HOUSTON, TX -- Drees Custom Homes announced that the company is entering the Houston market by building in three existing Houston communities. These communities include Woodtrace, where Drees' first Houston model home is now underway; the new East Village of Harper's Preserve, which features premium home sites; and Summer Lakes located in Rosenburg. Drees Custom Homes will be offering their Austin and Dallas floor plans, as well as developing new product specific to Houston.
Drees has hired Jay McManus as Houston Division President. McManus has more than 20 years of home building experience in the Houston market. He brings with him executive level experience in product development and sales strategy in the luxury move up segment of the market.
"Our expansion into Houston is an exciting and natural progression considering that our product has seen exceptional success in Austin and Dallas, where we produce more than 500 custom homes yearly," said David Harbin, Texas Region President, Drees Custom Homes. "We're all very enthusiastic about this growth and adding Jay to our team. We fully expect Houston to become our largest Texas market in the near future."
"Houston's housing market continues to outperform making this a great time for Drees to enter the market," said Scott Davis, Regional Director for Metrostudy's Houston Market. "The demand for new home inventory and finished product is high, and the three communities Drees is building in are well-established, desirable locations."
