This past year, Texan Kristen Robinson and her husband Nick decided it was the perfect time to build their dream home. Growing up in the Dallas area, Kristen was familiar with Drees Custom Homes. As a child, Kristen recalls her parents touring a Drees home. She said, “It was everything a kid could ever want … I would have my own room, my sister and I could run across the landing yelling to our parents below, and we could have a huge gameroom.” Her parents ultimately decided to keep her family in the same school district, so they didn’t buy that Drees home.
Kristen shared, “I never forgot about that house and talked about it for years. I swore to myself one day I would buy a Drees home.” She added, “I told this exact story to my husband when we met. Back then, I was just 18 years old. Nick promised me that, together, we would make this dream come true.”
Kristen is happy to report, “After working towards the goal, we are finally building the dream we committed to all those years ago!” This past summer, Kristen, Nick and their two daughters said “Yes!” to the address and began plans to build their Drees dream home at Trinity Falls. Situated on the banks of the Trinity River, Trinity Falls is a 2,000-acre master planned community just northwest of McKinney, Texas. The community provides residents with a wide variety of amenities, organized family-friendly events, miles of hike-and-bike trails and more than 450 acres of open space.
Additionally, Kristen has followed Drees throughout the years as a Realtor. In her professional role, she works diligently to match her clients with the perfect opportunity for their next chapter, which sometimes involves building a brand new home of their own.
Kristen has been documenting her family’s home building journey through her popular Instagram account (@kristen.nicole.robinson). She provides her clients and other followers with a behind-the-scenes view of the process and talks about what you should know when embarking on a new build of your own.
