Meet the companies that stepped up to a leadership role in the construction of high-performance homes in the Coastal Bend of South Texas. Their craftsmanship is superior to minimum code-built homes, with excellent long-term benefits for homebuyers.

This special issue of the Coastal Bend New Homes Guide features two outstanding builders who, during the past year, have earned the right to be called “Outstanding Energy Efficient Builders.”

While many builders today claim that their homes are energy efficient, only those—like the ones featured here with homes identified as “high performance” by programs like BUILT TO SAVE™—are able to support those claims with a third-party written guarantee from an independent RESNET-certified Rater who guarantees the superior energy efficiency of their homes.

Whether it is spending more time to make sure that construction is done properly, or spending more money upgrading the quality of materials, the 2018 Outstanding Energy Efficient Builders featured here invest above and beyond what is required by minimum building codes to make sure you, the buyer, are getting a superior home worthy of their company’s name. These builders are true leaders at a time when many, even new homebuyers, are content to accept the most basic of standards in a new home—an investment that is meant to last a lifetime.

We invite you to compare the “above code” quality construction and benefits of a BUILT TO SAVE™ home with a similar home built only to minimum code. Aside from the most obvious benefit with a BUILT TO SAVE™ home of impressive savings on your monthly utility bills, you’ll discover enhanced comfort, durability, superior resale value, and the peace of mind that what is behind the walls was inspected by a third-party Energy Rater to guarantee that the home complies with the strict requirements for certification as a high-performance BUILT TO SAVE™ home.

Jackie Homes, LLC | 2019 Distinguished Women in Construction

Jackie Azalli, founder of Jackie Homes, has some unusual roots in construction.

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.

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.
