Mitch Moore



I spent most of my childhood in Granbury, hunting, fishing, and helping my parents build houses. Every three years or so, we would sell our house and start building a new one. The excitement of finding the perfect lot, land, or house, and then planning what needed to be done to make the vision a reality, was always a family affair and fun for all of us. To me, there was never a question if I’d have a career in real estate, the only question was which avenue I’d take. I decided a degree in Construction Science at Texas A&M would allow me to do both. With that degree, I would gain the knowledge that would benefit both my real estate and custom home clients. After graduating in 2020, I worked for one of the largest homebuilders in the metroplex. I wanted to gain some hands-on experience in construction before starting my own business. In the year I was there, I built over thirty-five homes myself, received the distinction of Rookie of the Year, and was named one of the top 5 builders within the company. After obtaining my real estate license in 2021, it was time to realize my dream fully. Within the past year, I have sold large land in Comanche and Erath Counties, built the Pecan Ace Hardware, and I am currently building The Cottages at Pecan Plantation, as well as several customs homes. Although both from Granbury, my wife Casey and I met and started dating at Texas A&M. We have been married just over a year. She is a great compliment to me, and I am blessed to do life beside her. On weekends, you can find me hunting with my dog, fishing, or spending time with my wife and family.
