When Russell Bird, president of Courtland Building Company, Inc. is building a custom home for a friend or for someone he just met, he uses extensive, customer-oriented architectural and home building experience and expertise to provide Houston area new custom home buyers with a better-designed home that pleasingly meets individual lifestyles in both amenities and style. His close attention to detail results not only in continued and new friendships, but also in recommendations from previous buyers.

The talented Houston native has a degree in architecture from the University of Houston and has added home building, residential land development and real estate brokerage skills to his profile by working for several other companies before starting Courtland Building Company, Inc. Russell has experience in site selection, purchasing, marketing and financing and served as senior vice president for a major national home building company. Courtland Building Company was co-founded by Mr. Bird in 1987 and has been building in numerous custom home neighborhoods since that time. Courtland also builds in First Colony, Sugar Land, Fort Bend County, and around the Houston area including Bellaire and the Memorial Villages.

In 1996, Courtland Building Company earned the unique distinction of winning a PRISM award for the second consecutive year. The PRISM Awards are sponsored by the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) for excellence in home building, sales and marketing. Courtland Building Company took the PRISM Award for Custom Patio or Courtyard Home of the Year in the above $200,000 range and in 1995 for Custom Home of the Year under $450,000.

In 1999, Courtland Building Company, Inc. earned its third PRISM Award from the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) for Custom Home of the Year; this time for Custom Home of the Year priced between $450,000 and $750,000. Courtland’s ’99 PRISM winner is located in Sugar Land, Texas in the First Colony Subdivision of Sweetwater Section Four.

In 2000, Courtland received its fourth PRISM award for a 5300 square foot custom home in Sweetwater, Section 7.

In 2001, Courtland Building Company received its 5th PRISM award.

Also in 2001, Courtland Building Company was selected by the Texas Building Trends magazine as one of the top seven custom builders in Texas and was also featured on the front cover of the October 2001 issue.

In 2014 Courtland expanded into the Texas Hill Country where they have been in the building business since the 1850’s.  The family has built hundreds of homes and other structures in the Hill Country including the Luckenbach Dance Hall as well as numerous other dance halls and other buildings around Fredericksburg where the family emigrated in the 1850’s.

Offering a true “custom” home program, Russell Bird believes one of the company’s advantages is his architectural background. “I like the design phase, so I am more active in that phase of the business than some other builders”, states Bird. “I think this gives our customers an advantage, in that they get a better designed home that meets their lifestyle, without as much wasted space. This creates value in the home. The best part of being involved in the design phase is greater communication with the customer, which allows us to incorporate some of our favorite design features into the plan. We want each home we build to “wow” our customers and their friends.” The building process should be an enjoyable experience and we at Courtland Building Company, Inc. try to build every home as if it were our own personal home.

This attitude creates trust between the buyer and builder and establishes a good working relationship, which can develop into a lasting friendship. Courtland Building Company, Inc. is proud of our new home construction success, but more importantly, we are proud of the fact that we have built new homes for many new friends.
