About Aspire Fine Homes
Aspire Fine Homes (then called Whitestone Builders) was founded by David Gordon in 2004 with the goal of reinventing the custom home building process. As a native Houstonian, David’s interest in building came at a very young age as he watched houses being built from his bedroom window. Growing up in a new subdivision, he watched the construction process on the lots around his home and wondered about one day building houses himself.
After graduating from Texas A&M with a degree in Construction Management, David started Whitestone Builders, to design and build high-end luxury homes. It was during these early years that David began to understand that the complexity, tedium and delay inherent in the traditional custom home building process often resulted in frustrated, unhappy clients and has made it his mission ever since to reinvent it.
An Innovator and Thought Leader
David’s vision included more than just building award-winning luxury homes. He knew that the entire industry could be doing things differently to make the home building process easier, faster, and more efficient. When the company changed its name to Aspire Fine Homes, it also began to embody a new approach, encapsulated by The Aspire Way.
A key aspect of The Aspire Way is the innovative and proprietary ACE Process™ (Aspire’s Construction. Elevated Process). The efficiencies and consistency of this process allows Aspire to offer industry-leading guarantees that are breaking new ground in the home-building industry:
- On-Time Guarantee
- Fixed-Price Guarantee
- Money Back Guarantee
These revolutionary guarantees remove the stress and unpredictability of the custom home-building experience for clients, and require an unprecedented level of accountability on the part of the builder.
The Aspire Way reflects a combination of design, placement, finishing and the often elusive “flow” that delivers the dream home the client wanted, yet results in something even more than originally imagined, all while providing a positive experience during the process.

Today, the Aspire team includes a collaborative collection of architects, interior designers, and project managers, who stand ready to create joy for clients by delivering the luxury home they’ve always envisioned.
