Dana Rodgers is fairly new to the GHBA as an official member through First American Title, but she has been involved with the association as a long-time supporter through her husband, Keith Rodgers’ 25+ years in the industry. “I already knew the importance of being a part of this great organization and the great people that it encompasses,” she said.

Dana’s involvement with the GHBA is mainly through the Associate Council as well as the Montgomery County Builders & Developers Division and the Bay Area Builders Association events. She has also attended several Texas Association of Builders (TAB) meetings and looks forward to becoming more involved at the state level.

Dana was born in Houston and grew up in Mont Belvieu where she attended Barbers Hill. She attended Houston Community College where she studied court reporting, accounting and business.


Dana’s role with the Homebuilder Division of First American Title is business development and builder relations.

“Our division understands new development and the home building industry and is solely dedicated to serving home builders across the country,” said Dana. “First American Title had been looking to expand their Houston home builder team and my husband, knowing how good the industry had been to our family throughout the years, recommended me for the job. I have now been with them just over two years and am proud to work for a company named as Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to work for as well as Best Workplaces for Women & Diversity.”

Dana has also joined the HomeAid Houston team as a member of the Marketing Committee and subsequently became a board member earlier this year.

“My involvement with HomeAid stems from just one luncheon – HALO. It just really touched my heart and made a huge impression on me. I knew immediately that HomeAid was where I wanted to invest my time and support. Also being a new GHBA member and only recognizing a few faces made it a little uncomfortable, but I knew I was placed there for a reason. Then being approached by this tall, beautiful red-head that recognized me and knew my name made all the difference in the world. I’m very thankful that McCalle Fryar took the time to come say hello that day. I was able to reach out to her and ask how I could get involved.”

“HomeAid is a way for me to give back to the industry,” Dana continued, “and make a meaningful impact within the community. It is about building relationships, making memories and most of all, making a difference in the lives of others.”

Dana is also involved with raising awareness for breast cancer and scoliosis.

Dana and Keith have been married for 25 years and are hoping to celebrate in Hawaii in September. They have three children: daughter Jourdan (29) and her husband Kyle Hough; 20-year-old son Rance and their youngest daughter Ryleigh is 16. They are also blessed with two granddaughters, Annibelle (8) and Charlie (2).
