SPOTLIGHT: FRANKEL BUILDING GROUP BUILDS CUSTOM HOMES IN THE WOODLANDS WITH FAMILY PRIDE

by The Woodlands

Award-winning custom homebuilder Frankel Building Group, is one of over 20 homebuilders in The Woodlands. Frankel builds luxurious residences with family pride in the enclave of The Woodlands Reserve in the Village of Indian Springs. Home back the forested George Mitchel Nature Preserve for a winning combination.

We recently sat down with Kevin Frankel, Vice President of Frankel Building Group, for a Q&A Session about their products offered in The Woodlands, and much more.
Tell us how the business started and how long you have been building?
Kevin: In 1989, my dad started as a custom homebuilder and has been building a quality product with excellent customer service the entire time. My brother Scott and I came on board 11 years ago in April of 2006 and have been a family business ever since. We added energy, new processes and a stellar reputation in order to better the overall custom building experience. The family has changed it for the better and utilized technology more effectively. We offer a business-to-consumer product and treat customers with respect.

We started construction in The Woodlands area in 2009, and offering homes in The Woodlands Reserve in 2014 and 2015. We are the exclusive builder in The Woodlands Reserve with homes priced from the $1.5 million and up.

What makes Frankel Building Group so unique?
Kevin: We think the level of quality that we build to with regularity is the best in Houston. Frankel offers architecture in-house and new concepts every time we design a project, which is very unique. We are able to speak to buildability of the house during the design and intent of the design during construction conversations. We are the only builder with any frequency that builds LEED certified homes. Every home we’ve built in the last six years have been built to LEED standards.

Let’s say I’m a new homeowner. Take me through the process of choosing my custom home.
Kevin: We make the process easy and can place it in steps:

  1. Come in with a wish list or hand sketch of your own – have a concept in your head. It starts with a wish list and a pencil.
  2. We help you start off with a home site. We lay the site out.  
  3. Our lead designer (resident artist) takes a pencil and talks through the wish list and sketches the concept – 1st floor, 2nd floor, front elevation, where pool would go, etc.  90% of the plan is done within one hour to 1 ½ hours.
  4. The 3D Model would be ready within 45 days or so.
  5. Construction begins.

The process is like a movie, but we’re the director. The architecture team is the writer, and the client is the producer. We want to write what the producer (our clients) will be excited about.
