Rodrigo is the production manager for Adams Homes Lone Star, a new homebuilder in the Houston market. The company has seen exponential growth in just its two short years. Rodrigo has been an integral part in the success of the company through his development of systems and processes for training, purchasing, contracts and negotiations. He has also established superior accounting, marketing/sales, and construction quality assurance practices.

“I am honored to be a part of such a dynamic team at Adams Homes,” said Rodrigo. “Houston is in such an exciting market and I look forward to seeing Adams Homes continued success all while inspiring and building my team to maintain the quality product that Adams Homes delivers to happy home owners!”

Adams Homes was founded in 1991 by Wayne Adams and began serving homebuyers in Pensacola, Florida. Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, Adams Homes grew its business into markets throughout Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi. Since 2005, the company has expanded into markets in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and now Houston!

Adams Homes has a unique outlook towards homebuilding. While many companies have endless manuals and standard procedures by which to operate, Adams Homes attempts to limit “red tape” and allow their managers and team members to serve the homebuyers’ needs at a local level. Although all companies need some level of structure and procedure, they believe that situations aren’t always the same. They have surrounded themselves with great people who will treat the customer as they would expect to be treated.


In 1991, when Wayne Adams founded Adams Homes, he drew from more than a decade of real estate and residential construction experience to formulate the company’s core principles:

  • You’re only as good as the people with whom you surround yourself
  • Keep it simple
  • Treat people as you would want to be treated

These core principles have enabled Adams Homes to become one of the largest, privately-held homebuilders in the country and are also the foundation for Adams Homes philosophy, culture, and mission.
