Jeremy Hodo
Luxury Homes – Chief Construction Officer 

Jeremy Hodo grew up in a home that was built by his grandfather and in school he won awards for his art drawings and three dimensional designs of homes. During his time in high school and college, he worked during the summer months framing homes, pouring concrete foundations and flat work for homes. Construction is in Jeremy’s DNA.

Jeremy has worked in the construction industry for more than 20 years. The last eight of those years were spent in the luxury custom home market where Jeremy was responsible for overseeing the construction of homes ranging from $2 million – $6 million as well as managing the upper to middle range home market ranging from $700,000 – $1.1 million. He has worked with clients and architects through the design and planning stages, putting budgets together, as well as scheduling and managing the construction through completion.

One of Jeremy’s strongest attributes is being able to take clients’ imaginative dreams and execute them flawlessly. Prior to working in the custom market, Jeremy spent several years with one of the largest private home builders in the United States and helped start their townhome and condominium division.  In addition, Jeremy has also spent seven years in the restoration industry where he worked on projects valued at $250,000 – $1.2 million.

Along with his college and years of continued education from top leaders and engineers in the industry, Jeremy has gained a competitive edge on the competition.

Jeremy is always saying, “Life is much easier when you do the right thing, no matter what the cost is.” This motto is apparent in the projects he works on and from what clients have to say about him. He is a man of integrity.

Jeremy grew up in North Richland Hills and lives there today with his wife and two boys.
