From the President of Jane Page Design Group...
The team at Matt Powers Custom Homes and Renovations has an exceptional high level of service, as well as integrity and professionalism. They have successfully forged a reputation as one of Houston’s premier builders. We have been fortunate to collaborate with them on several projects.

Jane-Page Crump, RID ASID

My husband and I bought a Matt Powers home in December of 2014 and we couldn't be more happy with it and the Matt Powers team. As time passes we constantly find ourselves saying how thoughtful and intelligent of a builder Matt Powers is. My husband and I looked for homes for months and happen to find this home based on a few construction pictures. Those pictures demonstrated quality that we hadn't seen in other homes and sure enough when we walked in it the first time, not only was it so beautiful and custom, but it was sturdy and built with so much thought and care. We continue to comment on this all of the time as we live in it. This very thoughtful design has led us to enjoy an energy efficiency in our home that we didn't know we would have. Our energy bills are significantly cheaper than what we paid in a home nearly 1/4 the size. Finally, working with Matt has been a pleasure because he is a genuinely kind person. The relationship continues well after buying a home. He makes himself available to questions and we have consulted him on other ideas which is a great thing because we love spending time with him! We could not recommend Matt Powers and his team more highly!

Daniel Rodano

I've had the distinct pleasure of working with Matt Powers Custom Homes on numerous projects. Besides being an excellent builder, MPCH is honest, fair, and thoughtful and have they great follow through. They take pride in their homes and care to use quality materials and vendors.

He cares deeply and his level of dedication and professionalism is exhibited though out the entire organization. As an Interior Designer, it is a pleasure working with such a dedicated and skilled team who are passionate about building!

Cindy Aplanalp-Yates, ASID

From International President's Premier Agent for The Ferester Team at Coldwell Banker...
I have known Matt Powers and represented his building company for 8 years. I have found them to be of the highest quality, making it a pleasure to represent them as their sales agent in several neighborhoods. One of the outstanding qualities of Matt Power’s company is the teamwork that goes into every house. From the slab being poured to the finish with highly qualified artisans, the entire team combine to make the home go beyond ordinary and be extraordinary.

Matt Powers Custom Homes lead the others in innovative building practices, always on the forefront of new ideas and methods. It is always a pleasure to tell buyers about all of the outstanding features of a Matt Powers Custom Home from the finishes to behind the walls including their participation in the Leeds program.

I have yet to meet an employee of the company that isn’t excited, positive, and anxious to make the building experience a pleasure for the buyers and the sales team. Most of their clients end up being friends who recommend them to many others. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt Powers Homes to any buyer or their agent who are looking to have one of the most rewarding and exciting experiences in building their very own "dream home".

From the Owner of MG Trim Construction Company...

Matt Powers' Team provides easy communication between the builders and me; whether is is via phone, email or text, they respond immediately.

I am very happy to recommend Matt Powers Custom Homes to any future potential homeowner or business partner.

Manuel Garcia

From the Owner of Compass Drywall, LLC...
It has been both a privilege and a pleasure to work with Matt Powers Custom Homes over the last five years. Matt, Dewey, and their entire staff cultivate and maintain a standard of excellence which equals that of very few home builders in the Houston/Woodlands area. Their expectation for the highest quality material and labor from all of their subcontractors is appreciated by both homeowners and subcontractors, alike. At Compass Drywall, we’ve come to expect our MPCH projects to be ready for our crews upon arrival. Because our crews typically enter the project scene shortly after structural work is complete, we are able to observe and notate the quality and durability of a Matt Powers Custom Home at its core…second to none! This standard of excellence is not limited to the field. The folks in the office are friendly, professional, and extremely competent. They take pride in their relationships with their subcontractors, as well as in the quality of service those subs provide. We take great pride in working with MPCH. It is a partnership we hope to continue for many years to come!

Chad Lusk

After deciding to build our dream home, we chose Matt and Dewey from several recommendations and it turned out to be the perfect decision for us!! Their attention to detail, integrity, dependability and quality subcontractors resulted in a home that has exceeded our expectations tenfold! Three years later, we continue to rely on their expertise and respect the valued personal relationship we have built with them.

Kent and Sandy Ketchum

It was an absolute pleasure working with Matt Powers and his team in building our dream home. Matt made sure the partnership and collaboration was outstanding throughout the entire process. Matt and his team even made the process fun; the way it should be. The guidance they provided consistently enabled us to arrive at the best solutions in what we were hoping to achieve in our new home. We are truly amazed at the final results. Admittedly, our expectations were very high going into this project and those expectations have, without a doubt, been exceeded. Matt and his team have demonstrated the perfect balance between ensuring a disciplined process that keeps things on track and maintaining a collaborative environment where there is a free exchange of ideas.

Gerard and Krisi Monsivaiz

Now that we have been in our beautiful, new home for several months, Nancy and I want to take the time to thank you and Dewey for the excellent product. Our experience with your company was a real joy, and this is the fifth house we have built! Dewey, especially, was a real pleasure to work with - quick and friendly in his response to any inquiry or concern. Nancy and I are particularly pleased with the way in which your company worked with, and coordinated with, our designer, Jane Page Design Group.

We have had several groups of varying sizes at our home, and each has given “glowing” compliments on our home. And that makes us feel really good - and that is probably the best testimony in that we feel really good about our home.

Nancy & David Bishop

From the Owner & President of Eden Project...
Working with Matt Powers Custom Homes through out five years of collaborating on varying landscape projects covering a broad scope of work and architectural styles are some of the most fun projects that we have been involved in. Their flexibility and creativity allow us to produce enduring and significant landscapes that again and again exceed client's expectations. As one of the first contractors on the project and one of the last pieces to the process, I can attest that their consistency and expectations remain at the highest of standards.

Their creativity and vision help to drive the process, producing results in a timely manner. Furthermore their ability to connect client and contractor creates an easy and efficient decision process, as there are many choices and selections to be made.

In summary Matt and Dewey have developed a system and core group of people and trades that all strive for the same result. . . Perfection!

Jared Doddema

It was a pleasure building our home with Olympia Builders; we worked closely with the whole team on every decision. I really trust their integrity and honesty. I appreciate the access and help they offered in all phases of our decision making.

They accompanied me to the granite yards, brick yards, plumbing fixtures, etc. to answer questions I may have had as I made our selections. That was invaluable.

We felt confident in our decision-making, knowing that their expertise would guide us in the right direction. On several occasions, without our even asking them to, they brought crews back in to redo items that weren't completed perfectly. Their standard of excellence has helped us create a beautiful home.

Danny & Kayle Miller

We just wanted to thank the team at Matt Powers Custom Homes & Renovations for helping us navigate our unexpected renovation. In April 2009, our whole house flooded. After examining our options, we decided the best thing to do would be use this as an opportunity to completely renovate the house and in the process upgrade our 1960s house to a more modern and more energy efficient home. After interviewing a few companies, we settled on Matt Powers Builders because we felt comfortable with the team, particularly Dewey Hennessee who served as the lead contractor.

They assisted us in every phase of the project, from layout and design to landscaping and "green building" certification. During construction, we met with Dewey frequently to get status updates, make decisions and develop a schedule. No question of ours was too off the wall for Dewey. He took time to answer our questions and made sure that we understood the process at every step. In a tough spot, he was a real life-saver.

In the end we added a new master bath, remodeled the kitchen, moved several walls and redesigned the drainage on the lot. Despite never having done a certified green home before, they worked with an energy auditor to complete the requirements for a NAHB certification. As a result, our thoroughly new home was a awarded an Emerald level certification for renovations from the NAHB, the first of its kind in Harris county.

Patrick & Patricia Pringle

Matt Powers Custom Homes and Renovations has our highest recommendation! Matt is knowledgeable, thorough and professional. His expertise and reputation as a custom homebuilder were evident in each step of our renovation. Matt was able to incorporate structural planning, practical forethought and the latest advances to achieve our desired kitchen and living space.

Being able to communicate with a contractor was a major factor in our decision. Matt and Lena, our project manager, helped us to prepare for each step of our renovation. During the project they provided ongoing updates, onsite supervision, were available if any questions arose. Our renovation was completed on time and within budget.

The outstanding quality of workmanship was evident in the subcontractors Matt Powers chose. Each one of his subcontractors was polite, professional, and addressed any question or concern we may have had. They completed their jobs as if they were working in their own homes. We felt like our family and home were safe and we were able to continue with our activities with minimal interruption.

There is no doubt that we will be contacting Matt Powers for the next phase of our renovation.

Dr. Gary Mueck & Dr. Cynthia De Vos

We are very pleased with the end result. Our master bathroom is warm and inviting due to the quality work that was provided by MPCH. Matt gave great suggestions that improved the quality of work without adding burdensome costs. He is a builder who pays attention to the slightest details!

The projected budget was right on target. The contractors laid down tarps, taped areas thoroughly, and were careful to treat our home with respect. MPCH's renovations project manager was helpful and communicated frequently through phone calls, e-mails, and a weekly schedule update. The thoughtful and patient attention to detail was much appreciated! We recommend MPCH to do your home building or renovation!

Terry & Barbara Cargill

From the President of Texas Pools...
My name is Paul Ryan and I am the President of Texas Pools, Inc. We have been in business in the Houston/Woodlands area since 1980. We have worked in conjunction with countless custom homebuilders during that time, both on speculative home/pool building projects as well as with home/pool construction with contracted clients. For several years now, my company has been building high-end custom swimming pool projects with Matt Powers and Dewey Hennessee, the principals of Olympia Builders, their custom home building company. Because of our ongoing personal working relationship with them, and, because of how their clients as well as how their sub-contractors speak of them, I can attest that they are one of the most respected home builders in the Houston/Woodlands metroplex.

Both Matt and Dewey handle every project with the utmost professionalism and concern for the customer. It has been a pleasure working with Olympia Builders as they share our approach to building – high-end quality, custom projects, that upon completion, all concerned will say that they are very proud to be part of the Olympia Builder’s construction team.

Paul Ryan

From the President of Moss Landscaping...
There are not too many homebuilders in Houston who possess the combined experience and financial strength to build and design beautiful homes and estates in Houston year after year under one original name. It is my observation that the homeowner develops a long term professional and personal relationship with the builder, years after the home is completed. Olympia Builders provides the homeowners with the concept, design and execution of the final product in an efficient manner. Olympia Builders has the combined experience, detailed eye, and management skills to provide the homeowner with the best subcontractors, architects, and engineers in Southeast Texas. Their team has a tremendous relationship with their subcontractors. Always fair, treated professionally and with integrity on every transaction and on every project.

Matt and Dewey all bring ideas and value to the project. They provide ideas that will be the best results for the home owner. They think out the project together and always look at the best approach. This unique collaboration provides a fabulous project and a very pleased homeowner. Olympia Builders understands customer service and always follows up with every little detailed punch list item. They understand the importance of customer satisfaction. Their accessibility and response is second to none. The underlying most important factor is Olympia Builders possesses a positive attitude throughout their entire organization, and they get it.

Gary P. Moss

Matt Powers Custom Homes and Renovations renovated our home after it was rendered uninhabitable by Hurricane Ike. During this very stressful time for our family, Dewey Hennessee and Matt Powers worked with integrity, respect, honesty and responsiveness to rebuild our home. We trust both of them and would gladly hire them again.

Mike & Mercedes Kelly

We chose Matt Powers Custom Homes because of the unparalleled level of quality and service that they provide. They walked us through every step and were there every day to ensure that every detail was perfect. They were sensitive to keeping costs in control. We could not be happier with our new home. Olympia exceeded our expectations in every way and to top it off, they are just great people to work with!
