Over a decade ago, Matthew Reibenstein saw a major shift happening in the home building industry. As larger tract builders were rapidly increasing production in the Houston areas, the quality and offerings of the way things use to be was rapidly decreasing. More than that, it was clear that the "game" of not truly knowing what you are getting when you pay a large sum of money for a home left many buyers upset and the feeling of being taken advantage of. Matthew saw his opportunity to mix his engineering background, love of construction, artsy design side and burning desire to change the industry. Royal Design Build Co. originally started as Royal Homes and Matthew quickly made his mark in the Montgomery County area as he set out to do things differently than other builders. Over the years, he has pioneered an incredible way to show every single selection and corresponding budget item and really allows each individual homeowner the luxury of getting what they really want... without being over charged for "out of the box" items. This system works well for smaller homes all the way up to the luxury custom homes.
I have built all different types, sizes and prices of homes over the last ten years, but the one thing that I hear the most often from homeowners at the end of the day is that they felt like they got exactly what they paid for. That means a lot... every time!
Matthew has been building and developing custom homes and communities around Montgomery County since he graduated from Texas A&M University. As an accredited builder, Matthew serves as the President of Montgomery County Builders and Developers Division and serves on the Board of Directors for the Greater Houston Builders Association. During his first decade in the industry, Matthew turned heads by winning the inaugural Excellence Under 45 Award presented by the Texas Association of Builders in 2014. This was followed by the most recent 2017 GHBA Custom Builder of the Year award. He and his team have also won multiple STAR Awards and other prestigious acknowledgements for their commitment and integrity to the building industry.
On top of Matthew’s building experience and knowledge, he is a devoted husband and father to their three beautiful children. Matthew not only makes sure that he is instilling his Christian faith and attitude in his day to day business activities, but in that of his family too. If you are out and about in the Conroe/Montgomery areas, more than likely you will see Matthew cheering on and helping out at his son’s sports games, attending services with his entire family at the Fellowship of Montgomery, or giving back to the community through the many organizations in which he loves to volunteer. Matthew is a true example of putting God and family first all the while running and maintaining a growing, successful business.
