DIANE McGROARTY

Builder / Owner

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.

Diane’s first projects were move-in-ready homes in the 1,500 square foot range, usually on Padre Island since it was close to where she lived. Diane is the real deal. She is a “hands-on” builder who, thanks to her mentors in the remodeling business in Minnesota, developed a strong mid-western work ethic and a well-rounded knowledge of all phases of construction. She personally fills all the roles of a construction company: sales, marketing, meeting with customers, handling all the administrative and financial matters, overseeing architectural designs, and scheduling contractors. Most importantly, Diane makes it a priority to visit her job sites at minimum twice a day, saying, “I like seeing the progress of my projects from the day the surveying stakes go in to when I do the final walk-through with my customers.”

DIANE McGROARTY

Builder / Owner

The achievement I am most proud of is… starting my company from scratch and building it up over several years to what it has become today. Also, being recognized as one of the best builders in the state, with a prestigious Star Award from the Texas Association of Builders, makes me extremely proud.

I admire women who… are hard working, independent, dedicated, and who follow their dreams and don’t let obstacles stand in their way.

The secret to my success: My company is small by choice.  We only do a few projects at a time so that we can ensure the quality of our projects and give our clients the one-on-one attention they deserve.

People choose us because… we are a small company; therefore, our clients receive individualized attention. We have honesty and integrity with an established reputation of building quality homes since 1998.

The charity I support is… Timon’s Ministries because they do the following for the poor: provide hot meals 5 days a week, have a food pantry, distribute groceries to local low/no income families, have a medical, dental and eye clinic, provide clothing and some household items, and have laundry and shower facilities.

What makes us stand out: My company stands out because we have been in business for over 20 years building quality homes and making dreams come true for our clients.
