MARY RAMIREZ

Builder / Owner

Mary Ramirez is the founder of Chris Ryan Homes & Investments, LLC. She is also the builder, personally involved in a “hands-on” capacity since the company’s beginning in 1995. With over 23 years of construction experience, Mary Ramirez truly embodies the definition of a “woman builder.”

Mary is very conscientious about the quality of her homes. While most builders say this, Mary’s actions back up her words. She believes in “quality, not quantity.” That is the reason she chooses to build only 4 to 6 homes a year. It is the only way, she feels, that she can give each project her personal attention—and that will guarantee the home will meet her high-quality construction standards.

Chris Ryan Homes & Investments, LLC builds homes from $350K to $1.5 million. Whether the home is large or small, the one thing that remains the same is the way a Chris Ryan home is built. As an early pioneer of building energy efficient and “green” homes, Mary has developed a well-rounded understanding of the science of building homes. Her whole-house approach to building a tightly sealed home pays off for her customers who enjoy lower utility bills and durable, low maintenance homes. With a long list of satisfied homebuyers, Mary gets enough referrals to stay very busy.

During her 23 years in business, Mary has been recognized with many awards from industry peers for her entries into the annual Rio Grande Valley Builders Association’s (RGVBA) Parade of Homes competition. And with good reason. Every one of her homes entered in the Parade of Homes is a showcase of fine craftsmanship and sheer beauty—especially the kitchens, which Mary believes are “the heart of the home.” One important fact: Chris Ryan Homes & Investments, LLC has had the notable honor of winning the RGVBA’s highest award—Best of Show—for two consecutive years. Additionally, for the last 5 years in a row, Chris Ryan Homes & Investments, LLC has won the “Best Home” award in categories that ranged from homes over $500K to over $900K.

Mary, with the help of her husband Michael, has built a successful company and earned a proven reputation for building homes that win awards. But the recognition that she is most proud of is that which comes from those she cares most about—her customers.

MARY RAMIREZ

Builder / Owner

I always say… my Kitchens are the heart of my Homes. Families always gather around the most important part of the home, which is the kitchen. This is why I focus on building spacious, gorgeous custom kitchens so my clients can enjoy their time together.

I admire women who… are strong and independent. I tell my daughter almost every day that women have no limits to become anything they want. As long as she works hard for her goals, she will accomplish anything in life.

Our company goal is… to build custom dream homes for families to enjoy.

The thing I am most proud of is… being a woman builder for over 20 years. I take pride in my company’s reputation, and I’ve worked hard to get where I’m at. I also have developed a community “Miranda Estates,” and built “Miranda Plaza” named after my daughter.

The secret to my company’s success is… the passion that I have about building and designing luxury homes. I only average 4 to 6 homes a year so I can spend time with my clients and give them an amazing dream home.

Our company is best known for… luxury and quality homes designed for our clients needs and wants.

My drive for success comes from… my father. My father has been my mentor. He is a retired carpenter, and at 83, he is still building small projects in his back yard. I believe my success in building and in life comes from my father’s drive.
