Russel Garrison

Before the conception of Loyd Russel Homes Russel Garrison found himself in the home buyer hot seat. He felt that the process of buying a home should have been exciting and memorable, but to his disappointment, his was neither. It was that experience that sparked his desire to create a company that would be both of those things for the home buyer. In 2001, two years after Russel's unfulfilling home buying experience, he helped create Loyd Russel Homes. The shared vision for Loyd Russel Homes was a company that allowed the clients to have a voice in their home buying process while providing them with outstanding customer service and a high quality home.

This venture was not just something Russel jumped into, he brought with him his extensive financial knowledge as an experienced CPA.  He had worked as an auditor for Ernst & Young and as a Controller for Centex Home and Sunrise Colony Company. While working with these companies Russel was responsible for numerous financial aspects, including cash management, internal controls, analyzing land purchases, and supervising accounts payable. He uses his financial background to ensure that Loyd Russel Homes operates efficiently and is able to offer their clients affordable homes.

With over 26 years of experience Russel has helped LRH grow into one of Houston's premiere custom homebuilding firms.  He not only handles the financial aspects of the home building process, he also helps home buyers create floor plans, and helps them choose the selections and finishes of their new home throughout their homebuilding journey. Russel believes it is this hands on approach that helps him build a great relationship with his clients. He attributes the numerous referrals that LRH receives to the hard work and dedication that he and Steve put into their company.

Today Russel lives in his own custom LRH home with Leigh, his Life Partner of 22 years, and their two dogs, Chloe and Chelsea. Russel aspires to make many more of his clients' dreams come true and give them not just a house, but a place they can call home.

Steve prides himself on the company's commitment to exemplary customer service and attention to detail.
