The family owned company makes it their mission to provide the highest degree of respect and attention to each home buyer. That mission was ingrained early on in the principles’ work ethic. Drake’s President Horacio Martinez Jr., Sr. VP Jose Castillo, and VP Roberto Castillo began their home building careers in customer service. With over 35 years of building experience between them, meticulous care is taken with each development and each house to ensure the highest level of expectations are met. Ten-foot ceilings, eight-foot doors, livable floor plans, and a stellar work ethic are all hallmarks of a Drake Homes.
“Drake Homes went above and beyond to accommodate all of our requests,” says new homeowner Fred Lagrasta. “They are perfectionists. They didn’t cut any corners on the construction, and they always took my calls.”
Drake Homes’ flagship development in Houston’s Montrose neighborhood at Graustark Street is an example of the builder’s attention to detail. Among the high-end features included in the homes price are natural wood flooring, high-efficiency air conditioning, Jenn-Air appliances, and custom wrought iron details.
Drake Homes’ next major development “Ashland Square” in the Heights at 26th Street & Ashland Street will hold its Grand Opening in November 2013. The Heights-style homes will be available in four floor plans ranging from 2,475 to 2,878 square feet plus an optional 550 sf of living over the garage. The homes will feature antique brick, custom wrought iron details, functional and welcoming back yards, and detached garages.
