What Makes Us Different?


What We Know

Our partnership combines 90 years of homebuilding experience in Dallas Ft. Worth. Ninety. Bob Cresswell started Cresswell Custom Builders in 1972.  David Vanderslice has been in leadership roles with 3 major homebuilders since 1979.  Our experience brings together custom homes, luxury renovation, outstanding customer service, and strong business sense.  We understand every step of the process – site selection, design, construction, and follow-up.


Who We Know

The company you keep over 90 years of experience is the life blood of the organization.  Our network of skilled craftsmen, product suppliers, architects, engineers, designers, realtors and fellow homebuilders is second to none.  When you do the right thing for 90 years you make a lot of great friends in real estate.


Ideas We Have

After all these years we are still learning.  That’s what happens in homebuilding – you learn something new with every home you build.  Each one is unique.  Families change.  Styles change.  Technologies change.  We embrace that.  We love the creative process.  We listen to your ideas and we learn from them.
