Award-Winning Design for Your Lifestyle
My wife and I had been looking for several years to move into town to be closer to our older daughter and her family. On a Sunday leaving their house in Oak Forest, we stopped at an open house in Garden Oaks. Once we stepped in, we knew we had found our builder!
From the crown molding to the appliances to all of the finishes, the attention to detail was the best we had ever seen. The couple that had the open house introduced us to David Gordon, founder of Whitestone Builders, now Aspire Fine Homes. From that point on, he was involved with us every step of the way.
Two months later, we found a lot, and with David’s direction on what to do regarding tearing down the house on the lot to engaging an architect, he was with us all the way.
During this time our house flooded in Kingwood, David stepped up to introduce us to a builder friend to re-build our house in Kingwood while we were building our house in Garden Oaks. David is a great builder with a great team but an even better person because he helped us in a very trying time.
Once we were in our house, David’s team was very responsive and helpful to follow up on warranties and to make sure we were satisfied with the final product. Again, David’s team was so professional in how they treated us during the build and after the build.
We still stay in touch with David and have gone to some of his open houses since our build. If we ever build again, there will be no one on the list, but David and his Aspire Fine Homes team!
From his help with lot selection to architects to keeping us informed during the build, the whole experience was great!

“David Gordon and his team have been exceptional builders from start to finish. We have truly enjoyed working with all his staff and they have built our family a wonderful home that we will enjoy for many years. We cannot recommend Aspire Fine Homes highly enough!”

“We had the opportunity to work with Aspire Fine Homes and David Gordon to build our dream house last year.
Aspire has an in-house team that covered all phases of the project from architecture to landscaping, which gave us a one-stop-shop where the Aspire team had accountability for every aspect of the project. David was very flexible in the design elements of our project and very clear on budget, and selection impacts on budget, from the very first meeting we had with him when we acquired the land.
We had a few minor bumps along the way. Still, every time we called to voice concerns either on the business side of the house or the construction side, the problem was very quickly resolved and usually exactly how we suggested it should be. Our house was completed 6 weeks ahead of schedule (which is unheard of in my understanding) and saved on the budget for a few change orders along the way as a result of our selections.
Both David (the head of the company) and Michael Reed (the project manager for our house) answered our calls every time we rang, which was very frequent, or called us back that day.
We have been in the house for about 9 months and have absolutely loved it. The inspector and several vendors have independently commented to us on the structural integrity of our home. We have had zero major issues with the house and only a few minor ones that were discovered once we moved in and were immediately addressed. One of those minor issues presented during a flood last year, and the Aspire team volunteered to come out and fix it that day while it was still storming. Even still 9 months later, when we have little issues that are covered during the warranty period, they usually come out to fix it within 24 hours.
We have been very pleased to have worked with the Aspire team, and we love our new house!”

“We started working with the team of Aspire Fine Homes in late December of 2018. From day one, David and the team were easy and fun to work with. The guidelines given during the early process, helped us understand the timeline of building such a beautiful home. Every one of the vendors that helped us with selections were ultimate professionals and very, very helpful. Once the building process started, we were assigned a project manager that would guide us through decisions that had to be made as the project moved along. The project manager was a true gem going far and beyond to make us happy and informed as the project got nearer to completion. I have to admit, I was expecting a stressful process and year, but it was far from that. The team at Aspire is the reason for this. I absolutely appreciate them in every way. The home that we are in now is truly our dream home. I would not change a thing being in it for 3 months now. Thank you, Aspire Fine Homes!”

“I have built three homes over the last twenty years. Generally, the experience was rather unsatisfactory. When we signed a contract with David Gordon, we had no idea what awaited us. Of course, we had an idea as to the quality of the work—David’s firm has built lots of wonderful houses in our neighborhood, that is why we chose him…imagine our surprise when the house was on a budget, on time and just as beautiful as we pictured it. Please come by and see our home: it was featured in the real estate section of the Wall Street Journal since it was built during an adverse moment, post-hurricane. The excellent service post-move-in has continued. Please call me to talk about David’s company and their ability to build your new home.”
