Home truly is where the heart is. With a deep-rooted belief that a quality living experience invaluably contributes to a homeowner’s sense of self-worth and dignity, Wes Peoples has been dedicated to crafting new homes in Texas for over four decades. In that time, Wes has developed a profound understanding of how a superbly designed and constructed home can not only enrich and empower a homeowner’s life, but also the communities in which they reside.

Wes’s personal approach and remarkable ability to unite people and organizations of all types (individuals, governmental bodies, businesses, and community groups with diverse interests) has earned him a well-deserved collection of accolades. Honors include the Ethics in Business Award, presented by the Samaritan Center and Concordia University Texas; and appointment as the Chair of the Board of Regents for Texas Lutheran University, his beloved alma mater.

Together with his wife, Karen, they have dedicated countless hours to raising funds for pediatric mental health care at the Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas. And they helped to establish the Grace Grego Maxwell Mental Health Unit at Dell Children’s Medical Center.
