CLAUDIA LARA

Vice President

Early in her career, when Claudia Lara was pursuing a degree in education, she had no idea that she would indeed be teaching, but not in the academic field. As Vice President of Camelot Designs and Construction, one of Claudia’s key responsibilities is to be able to teach the company’s customers about every phase of home buying and home building—and she is very good at doing that thanks to her keen knowledge, years of experience, and—in no small part—thanks to her woman-builder strengths.

As Claudia was completing her education degree, she began to help her husband, Hugo Lara, President of the Camelot Designs and Construction, by doing not only administrative work in the office, but also by visiting the job sites and supervising the work being performed by sub-contractors. For Claudia, home building was “love at first job site.” She fell in love with her work. So when it came time to choose between a career in education or one in construction—it was no contest. She chose to be a builder.

CLAUDIA LARA

Vice President

My real job description is… helping my clients turn their idea of a dream home into a reality. It’s my job to get to know my clients and guide them in what I feel would be the best fit for their needs.

I admire women who… are strong, confident, intelligent, and hardworking. No matter what adversity these types of women face, they will always use it to make them stronger and do what they feel is true to themselves.

I love what I do because… it’s a way for me to be of service to others while sharing something I am passionate about. I was born a creative person, and I utilize that in any way that I can to help my clients. Helping them feels rewarding.

Experience has taught me that… helping and interacting with others is very important, and this has taught me to have more joy while serving them. It has also taught me that you are never done learning and evolving.

The achievement I am most proud of… is three things—if I had waited until I was completely ready, I never would have them: my husband, my children, and my business. And I think where I get the most blessings and satisfaction in my life now are my family and business.

My job is most rewarding when: I see how satisfied my clients feel.  It may sound like a cliché, but I do what I do to serve my clients.  There’s nothing more rewarding than getting a call or text from a client showing their gratitude for what I have helped them with.

Jackie Homes, LLC | 2019 Distinguished Women in Construction

Jackie Azalli, founder of Jackie Homes, has some unusual roots in construction. She was born and raised in England, and after meeting and marrying her husband, Rey Azalli, they both lived and did remodeling work there. However, Rey had various family members who were established in commercial and residential construction in Corpus Christi, Texas, so they decided to move to the US—even though it was a difficult decision for her because she loved England. Little did she know, at the time, that a new passion was waiting for her in Texas– building new homes.

Diana Homes, Inc. | 2019 Distinguished Women in Construction

Diane McGroarty moved to Corpus Christi, Texas, from Minnesota in 1998, having grown weary of the cold winter weather in the north. She settled on Padre Island and very soon after, resumed what she had been doing in Minnesota—construction work. Instead of doing remodeling work as she had done there, however, she went into new home construction, primarily because a friend in the industry cautioned her about the challenges of remodeling work in the local warmer, humid climate of South Texas.
