The team to make your dreams come true.

With a dedicated customer service staff and an excellent, longstanding relationship with our craftsmen, J.W. Neathery diligently caters to the unique needs of each customer.


J.W. Neathery’s approach to home building is unlike any other builder because his path into the home building field is unique.  In high school Jay determined he wanted to be a home builder. He went to Texas A&M specifically for the Building Construction degree they offered. With that degree he secured his first job out of college as a superintendent for U.S. Homes, then the largest homebuilder in the nation. He worked for one other local builder before starting J.W. Neathery, Inc.  in 1980 to build custom homes for families. Since then, he has dedicated himself to build every families home with the same quality he would build his own.  Custom home building is all Jay has done his entire adult life.  The only career he has ever pursued or wanted. 


Sandy moved to Magnolia with her family in 1998.  She and her husband, David contracted with Jay to build their new home in High Meadow Ranch. After completion of their home in 1999, Sandy became part of the J.W. Neathery, Inc. team.  Sandy has worked in various positions for the company, from customer service rep. to superintendent to her current position as office/project manager. Sandy and Jay work closely with clients to design the specifications and budgets.  Sandy handles the daily administration for Co-Construct, the online website clients use for their selections, schedules & tracking financials on their homes.
