Meet Our Team
Nicole was born into the construction business; helping her dad lay tile for his business in her summers growing up she learned that hard work and quality workmanship go a long way in business and in life. She has a passion for project management and quality control that sets True Texas Builders apart. Nicole worked her way through college at a local State Farm agency and after she graduated she went on to earn an MBA degree from TCU. She then took on a corporate career working for GM Financial where she first ran a Data Analytics team and later a Treasury team. During this time, Nicole & Ben were also investing in real estate, home building and remodels, which became much more than a hobby in 2020 when True Texas Builders was born. Today, Nicole runs project and process management for the company as well as handling most all the back office functions.
Ben learned the basics of construction from his father and grandfather at a young age. His grandfather had been trained by the GI bill to build houses after returning from the war and growing up, most all the family’s construction projects were self-performed. After farming and ranching until his early 20’s, Ben graduated from college and went on to get his MBA from TCU. From there, he worked for 8 years in oil and gas coming up the ranks in Finance to eventually run Financial Planning and then later was Director of Asset Development. He then went on to work at GM Financial managing their interest rate and foreign currency trading group and lastly for a medium sized commercial and industrial construction firm where he was CFO.
While working corporate careers Ben and Nicole started their careers in real estate as side projects. From flipping houses to rental fixer uppers to VRBOs and eventually new construction, they found their passion in delivering great homes and communities. Ben’s background in Finance and Project Management brings a different mindset than others to the home building industry. True Texas Builders takes pride in working with customers to meet timelines and deliver homes on budget, all the while ensuring quality at every step of the process.
