Mark Jeffrey, a long time Houston custom home builder along with Ash Shah, a Houston Real Estate Developer, have joined forces to form Jeffrey-Shah Luxury Homes. We have been chosen as one of only six approved builders for luxury home construction in the community of Bluejack National, the first Tiger Woods designed golf course near the Woodlands located in Montgomery, Texas. Jeffrey-Shah Luxury Homes works with Phil Kean Architects to offer his beautiful award-winning designs, adapting them to the Houston marketplace as needed.
Mark Jeffrey, Partner
Mark is a lifelong Houston resident, a graduate of the University of Houston with a BSEE, and has been in the building industry for numerous years. He has been building custom homes for quite some time as owner of Jeffrey Harrington Homes, 20-20 Homes, and Jeffrey Log Homes. Mark also is a franchise owner of a local UBuildIt office, a do-it-yourself homebuilding consulting firm. Mark has become an innovative force in custom home building.
Mark recalls, “I met Ash through one of my clients and we began to discuss a specific opportunity for a high end custom home in a gated community in north Houston. During several meetings, we discovered similar interests and passion about architecture and resort-styled luxury homes seen in Las Vegas, Scottsdale, Winter Park Florida, Miami and a few other resort areas around the country. We decided to form a partnership to address this market segment in Houston, which is generally found in gated communities, on and near waterfront property and private golf courses.”
