Jameson Luxury Homes and Pools

Jameson takes great pride in the hundreds of homes and pools we have built in this community over the past decade. Most importantly, our business and lives has been enriched by the relationships we have formed during this time. With over 90% of our new business is based on direct referral, its great to know we are doing it right. Here are just a few of their comments.

Joey and I just wanted to thank you for making our homebuilding experience much better than anticipated! Before starting the process, we heard countless stories from other homeowners about what a nightmare the building process is. We ended up being very pleased that we chose you. You were honest, conscious of our needs and always went the extra mile to make sure things were done right. In fact, there were times that we were okay to let things go that a contractor hadn’t done exactly right. You weren’t. You had it re-done until it was done as we asked without any change order fees. You treated our home as if you were building your own. You were very open and receptive to any feedback we gave about the process. We will recommend you to anyone that we hear of wanting to build a house and will use you again if the time comes. Most importantly, you don’t just build homes, you build relationships. Who else can say that about their builder?”


We were very pleased with the professionalism and personal attention we experienced while building our dream home with Jameson Custom Home Builders. Ours was a challenging project, with intricate custom spaces, trim, and finishes. We are thrilled at the quality of the workmanship. Every project of this scale has a “punch list”, where the builder comes in and touches up at the end. Jameson Custom Home Builders stuck with the job until we were totally satisfied. We’d gladly give them the opportunity to build our next home.

Jameson Pools did an excellent job of designing and installing our beautiful swimming pool. We’re particularly pleased with the way the pool complements the view and the overall backyard experience. The firepits and water features are unique and quite dramatic. The job site was well maintained, the schedule went very well, and we’re very pleased with the final result. We’d be happy to use Jameson Pools the next time we build a custom pool.”


Before deciding on a contractor for our new home, we talked with a number of different builders who worked extensively in Benders Landing, all of them very qualified and professional. But with Jameson Homes, we immediately felt a sense of compatibility and confidence. They helped us from pre-design (recommending a very talented architectural designer in Joe Feringo) and budgeting, all the way to interior decoration.

Jim Nickel is a soft-spoken, creative craftsman. His partner, Brent Kaz, is an energetic facilitator with a can-do attitude and a lot of know-how. Kristi Nickel is a well-organized budget master who also possesses a great eye for interior design. Together, they make a great team.

Home construction is one of the most stressful experiences a couple can put themselves through, especially if you are small business owners like us and have a thousand other priorities to manage. But throughout the entire process, Jameson helped keep the typical home-building chaos under control.

We have built more than a few homes in our lives. Without a doubt, we have been happier with our Benders Landing home than any other we have built. The experience of taking it from concept to finished home with Jim, Brent and Kristi contributed a great deal to our satisfaction with the whole process.

Based on our experience, we highly recommend Jameson Homes to anyone.”


Just a note to thank you for all the hard work and long hours you both dedicated to the making of our beautiful home in Benders Landing. The thought of finding a builder to build a home for us in Texas, while living in California, was truly difficult. We knew the choice would have to be someone who we could totally trust and believe in, someone that would have to be responsible, reliable and dependable, and someone that we could easily communicate with while keeping us constantly informed.

We want you both to know that we found all of these things and more, in choosing Jameson Custom Homes. When we moved to Texas, we were totally amazed at the beauty, perfection and quality of workmanship that went into our home. You are a very professional, knowledgeable and honest company, and the pride and love for what you do best shines brightly. Much success will follow the quality work and great customer service in which you provide.”


I think what Mary and I appreciated the most about Jim as a builder was his willingness to listen to all our ideas, then give us the pros and cons as he saw them. We loved some of the ideas he came up with as the house was going up. We found Jim easy to work with, very cooperative, and would not hesitate to recommend Jameson Custom Homes!”


Building this house has been our dream for years. From the moment we met Jim we instantly knew his honesty and integrity were just the qualities we were looking for in a custom home builder. His first meeting with us lasted 2 hours. At that point we realized he wanted to listen and turn our dream into a reality. After showing us the houses he was currently working on, we were quite impressed.

Jim’s attention to detail from day one and Kristi’s immense knowledge of the finance side has made the entire process a success.

Meeting deadlines and staying in budget were goals that were actually accomplished. We appreciate the daily visits, weekly financial reports and timely answered emails. Communication was definitely the key.

John loves his custom office. The children are crazy about their rooms. At the end of the day when I cook in my beautiful new kitchen, I can honestly say…We had the best builder in Texas!”


When searching for a custom home builder, quality of work, reputation within the community, and reputation with local contractors was very important to us. Equally as important and the deciding factor for choosing Jameson Custom Homes, was knowing we were working with someone who we could trust, felt comfortable with, and were always responsive to our requests and concerns.

Many items and qualities assured us Jameson was the right builder for us throughout the building process and the end result lived up to our highest of expectations. Throughout the building process, we appreciated the professionalism, kindness and attention to quality and detail exhibited by all at Jameson Custom Homes. Brent and Jim always made themselves available to answer questions or to meet at the job site, and were very proactive in guiding us through the homebuilding process. We are ecstatic to have the dream home we envisioned, and are grateful to Jameson Custom Homes for making the dream become a reality.”


We waited until we retired to start building our dream home. Since we had never been involved in the building process in other homes, we were somewhat anxious about making the right decision on a builder. We put out our bid package to three builders. While all were competent builders, we selected Jameson Custom Homes primarily because we felt the relationship overall would be the best of the three. We were not disappointed. Both Jim and Brent are honest and straightforward, providing us with alternatives and the pros and cons of each when decisions were to be made.

The building process went smoothly and working with Brent as our project manager was a pleasant experience. As always, there is a punch list and Brent persevered with the items on the punch list until all were resolved. We would not hesitate to recommend Jameson Custom Homes to others as a “builder of choice and quality.”


When Ray and I started to interview some builders it was important for us to find a builder who was going to meet our expectations on quality, price and schedule. Brent and Jim were both easy to work with, they created an atmosphere where from designing to finish, you make the decisions. People often ask us the question “would you use your builder if you ever built again…” Without a doubt we would use Jameson Custom Homes….mainly because Brent and Jim are both men of integrity and because of their premiere service during and after the building process.”


We chose Jameson Custom Homes to build our house in 2005. We chose Jameson Custom Pools to build our swimming pool in 2006. Then, we chose Jameson Custom Homes to build our pool house in 2007. We love Jameson Custom Homes. Honesty…Integrity…Quality… We highly recommend Jameson Custom Homes.”


My wife and I were very nervous about building our own home. We had heard and read about several horror stories, but the experience with Jameson Custom homes was entirely different.

We met Kristi, Jim, and Brent at the Benders landing showcase of homes in April 2007. I had the opportunity to follow their showcase home (as well as others) through the building process, because I live near by. The finished product was magnificent, but even more impressive was how well the various stages were carried out.

We interviewed several builders (five) and we decided to go with Jameson not only because they had built a great showcase home, but because of their style. They did not restrict our choices, they communicated potential problems with our plan and also offered suggestions as to how to make our home look better.

Anybody who told you the construction process is smooth sailing probably does not know what they are talking about. What makes it easier to deal with is communication, honesty and meeting of deadlines. This is exactly what we found with Jameson homes. All phone calls and email messages were returned promptly and we could see how every penny of our budget was being spent. The craftsmanship of the various stages was excellent…as we had expected.

After it was all done, we actually felt we could do this again. Most people will say never again. And by the way….they build great pools too.”


My wife and I just love our new home built by Jameson Custom Homes. The quality of construction has exceeded all expectations. Our house was built with care and efficiency and in minimum time. If you want your custom home, built your way, for you, I wholeheartedly recommend Jameson Custom Homes.”
