Austin Luxury Custom Home Builder Awarded Custom Home Builder of the Year for a Third Time by Austin Business Journal.

Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes of Austin is honored to be recognized as the 2015 Custom Home Builder of the Year by the Austin Business Journal (ABJ) at its annual Residential Real Estate Awards event. This marks the third time in the last five years that Zbranek & Holt have been honored with this prestigious award by Austin’s leading business publication. Each year the Austin Business Journal hosts this award ceremony honoring the 50 Top Residential Real Estate Agents, Custom Home Builders, Production Home Builders, Green Builders, and Master-Planned Communities. The Journal named Zbranek & Holt, “A builder for the (modern) ages,” with their ability to keep up with technology serving as one of the keys to their success.

This year, the ABJ recognized Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes for the ability to provide award-winning custom homes in combination with an unparalleled use of technology both for client communications and within the new homes they construct, as well as their philanthropic dedication to the Austin community. The Journal had high praise for Zbranek & Holt’s history of giving more than $400, 000 to various non-profit organizations and charities over the past decade since the company first began building custom homes in Austin.

In 2014 Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes was chosen as the builder for the 2015 Home of Distinction, enabling the company to select the Center for Child Protection as its beneficiary. The Center affords the dual goal for Zbranek & Holt to continue their philanthropic efforts focused on children coupled with the desire to reach a broader population of individuals in the Austin area. The Center for Child Protection helps abused children throughout Travis County by working everyday to end the cycle of child abuse. “Not only was the Center delighted to be selected, as they have donated over $400,000 in the past to local charities, we were impressed that an award-winning residential construction company would be so motivated to partner with our organization and fully dedicate their team to this charitable endeavor,” said Michael Torres, executive director of the Center for Child Protection. The “show home,” currently under construction in the Westlake Hills area of Austin, will feature an exclusive Preview Night and public tours in addition to other events to be announced. All events are being planned for mid-September, with dates to be published soon. The Center for Child Protection will receive 100% of all ticketed events including the Preview Night Party, the public two-week home tour, and other events in the works.

The Journal also noted Zbranek & Holt’s strength as an industry leader, operating debt free due to their very successful business model of only building pre-sold custom homes; since they do not own land or build unsold speculative homes, they are able to secure the company’s financial future indefinitely. The Journal credited their adaptive ability to suit a growing number of clients who live in other cities, states and even countries during the construction of their new Austin area homes. This customization has enabled long distance relocating clients to better enjoy the process as they stay fully connected to their project from other cities. Founder, Steve Zbranek stated “Our goal is to make the homebuilding process as fun and stress-free, for our clients, as we possibly can. Whether folks are living here during construction or building their home from another city, we truly understand that building a home from scratch can be a fun and creative process, but also an incredibly stressful event. For that reason we have worked tirelessly over the past seven years to adjust our model and improve the customer experience throughout construction. This has resulted in highly satisfied clients who compliment our process and would build with us again.”
