Translating Vision to Masterfully Crafted Homes
As a native Houstonian, David Gordon’s interest in building came at a very young age as he watched houses being built from his bedroom window. Growing up in a new subdivision, he would view the construction process on the lots around his home. When he wasn’t catching snakes with neighborhood friends, he was taking things apart. He was a mechanically inclined child with a strong affinity for math and science.
At 18, he began running construction teams with his brother building decks and patio covers. Encouraged by his uncle, Gordon went on to attend Texas A & M and the University of Houston where he earned a degree in Construction Management.
In 2004, Gordon scratched his entrepreneurial itch and founded Whitestone Builders. Going against the grain, instead of spec starter homes, David’s team only built luxury up-scale spec homes. Never wavering in his principle of highly talented architects and interior designers, these houses sold quickly because of the high level of sophistication and style.
During the market crash, while many builders were going out of business, Gordon led his company to pivot it’s services and offer high end custom homes instead of spec homes, including expansion into more of Houston’s most desirable neighborhoods, and increasing its focus on customer service to make every effort to ensure a positive, memorable experience. This pivot proved to be successful and Whitestone Builders won the “Custom Builder of the Year” in 2012 at the GHBA “Houston’s Best” Awards. After continuing to build a track record of success by turning a client’s luxury lifestyle into a reality, Gordon made the decision to rebrand Whitestone Builders. Now, Aspire Fine Homes, Your Lifestyle. Elevated. The brand reflects a combination of design, placement, finishing and the often elusive “flow” that delivers the home that the client wanted, yet results in something even more than originally imagined, and providing a positive experience during the process.
Gordon’s Golden Rules:
Rule #1 – Full size lot; best location
Rule #2 – Only hire premium architects, interior designers, and use high quality materials
Rule #3 – The client’s vision is paramount
Aspire saves clients from bad decisions and guides them towards their own vision. A priority for each team member is to create joy for clients by delivering the home they envisioned.
Expert craftsmanship and exquisite taste has earned Aspire Fine Homes dozens of awards, including the “Best of Houzz 2014-2019”, several GBHA “Prism Awards”, several TAB “Star Awards”, and HBA “Parade of Homes” awards. Their work has also been featured in many publications such as Home Builders Digest, Houston House and Home, and the Metropolitan Builder.
Gordon has served as a chair and board member of the Greater Houston Builders Association and continues to be an active member. He now embraces the opportunity to put his Christian faith in action as Aspire Fine Homes is committed to supporting organizations that assist people in need obtain housing, and well as projects that support veterans in the Houston community.

Giving Back to the Place We Call Home
We founded Aspire Fine Homes on the values of faith and integrity. To us, that means that we have a duty to give back to the community that supports us and allows us to pursue our dreams as our livelihood. This gratitude expresses itself through support and involvement in multiple organizations that help to improve Houston.
