Our Founder

Inspired by heritage, Royal Texan Homes is the unique vision of our founder Mark Garraty.

After leaving school in the UK, Mark joined one of the most established firms of Chartered Surveyors in London, located in the famous Lincolns Inn Fields. Over the course of almost a decade, Mark personally found and renovated post industrial revolution homes and cottages in the North of England and was at the vanguard of regeneration programs that have transformed English cities such as Liverpool, Leeds, Doncaster and Hull.

Marks passion and understanding of Architectural styles combined with historical narrative are rarely available to most residential home buyers. His influence is everywhere and our client meetings are fascinatingly educative, creating an enjoyable project environment with unique opportunities for our clients.

Mark’s passion was to bring the build quality and elegance of these unique homes to the American market and make them available not just to the exclusive custom home buyer but to all who desire a standard of home and living that is currently not served in the conventional real estate market.

Mark is very visible in community life and our company. He is a frustrated soccer player (having never had the talent to be good) and supports local schools, charities, activities and sports teams across Montgomery County and Greater Houston. Our corporate function is to serve and our community spirit is the same. Please contact us to find out more about who we are.

Our Story

"Our passion must be to create individual spaces that draw from design and architectural pedigree to complete our clients dreams"

- Mark Garraty CEO Royal Texan Homes

It's how we do it that is so different. Step inside a Royal Texan Home and immediately you will notice the difference. Our homes, our people and our philosophy all reflect the commitment of excellence in building, design and service. The expression “dream home’ is often discussed but rarely achieved and we believe home buyers should not have to compromise. Every Royal Texan Home is finished to a high standard of detail and quality that reflects a true custom experience.

However understanding our clients influences also plays a part. What is your taste, Farm House, Contemporary, Hill Country Chic, Modernism, Craftsman, French, Neo Classical, Acadian, and the list goes on. We believe every home should be built around our clients custom wants and needs. We believe homes should richly contribute to the lives of the people who own them, the communities they are placed in and the people who experience them.

Meet with us, and you will never look at a home the same way! This is what Custom Home building should be about.
