This custom build for a commercial architect took plenty of skill and finesse, says Kevin Key of Key Residential.

Listening to owner Kevin Key talk about his eponymous company, the term that comes to mind is “renaissance man.” With over 25 years of experience in the homebuilding/remodeling business, the portfolio of this CandysDirt.com Approved Builder encompasses multiple genres.

From traditional to contemporary, rustic to transitional, the one factor that unites them all is Key’s commitment to quality — a time-tested mix of craftmanship, purpose, and style.

“We don’t want to get pigeon-holed into one specific type of house. Our point of difference is that we can do any type of project.” Another plus is the opportunity to work with Dallas’ top architects, trade partners, and interior designers. From beginning to end, it’s a collaborative effort. “The ultimate goal is to make our homeowners’ vision come to life.”

Give Elliott Perry, president of Hudson Construction, a call. Anytime. If he doesn’t get back to you within five minutes, he’s either on a plane or something is seriously wrong. “We’re not only client-focused—we’re client-obsessive. This business isn’t rocket science. It’s customer service and hard work.”

According to the CandysDirt.com Approved Builder, attention to detail is key. So is hiring the very best talent for each project, from architect to designer to project manager.  “New construction is a team approach. You have to take every piece and figure out how to make it all work together.”

Twin brother Alex, a senior vice president with Allie Beth Allman, plays an integral role.  The pair have a special alliance, offering up a unique blend of insight and experience.

“We’re two young hungry guys — one specializing in building and construction; the other, laser-focused on managing people and servicing clients,” says Alex.  “We both live and breathe real estate.”

They credit their strong work ethic to a lifetime talking business at family dinners. (Dad, David Perry, was a top producer in Los Angeles; the pair also have two older brothers.)

“With four boys, you had to fight to get a word in edgewise. While you’re competitive growing up, as you get older, they become assets,” says Elliott.
