When I started my homebuilding career almost 40 years ago I remember the immense job satisfaction from scraping dirt on a lot, pouring concrete, building a home and handing lucky homeowners the keys at the end. Their excitement was contagious and it made all of us want to do a better job every day. Through the years it has always been fun to bring custom home dreams to life for families, but today the fire has been reignited. Our team at Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes recently opened an office in Horseshoe Bay on beautiful Lake LBJ. Now we are not only building amazing custom homes, we are also building places where families come to play, relax and have fun. The mood is festive and the ideas are based on elegant design and entertaining family and friends.

Waterfront owners on Lake LBJ enjoy their rear yard bordering the constant level of water every day. Golf course owners can drive their carts to the course and their cars to the lake. Now that we are one of the locals more Realtors are introducing us to their clients and our signs are getting noticed. Our award-winning team has built homes on Lake LBJ for over 10 years. Our family has owned waterfront properties here since the 80’s and all of our kids learned to water ski on Lake LBJ. After 40 years of building fine custom homes for fun people I can’t imagine doing anything else. During the long warm season I get to visit most of our homes by boat. Who would want to retire from that.
