Risher Martin builds and renovates distinctive homes for discriminating clients in Austin’s most prestigious neighborhoods.

We are the 2018 Texas Custom Builder of the Year, 2016 Fred Case Remodeling Entrepreneur of the Year, 2015 and 2012 Austin Custom Builder of the Year and 2011 Texas Remodeler of the Year.

Our highly structured Pre-Construction Services process creates realistic expectations from design through construction. Our sophisticated system manages the complex flow of information amongst various parties, encourages open collaboration, and creates and maintains alignment of purpose. Our visual guide to project planning creates accountability, reduces uncertainty, and minimizes risk. This highly integrated and proactive approach virtually eliminates costly changes during construction, and yields a more enjoyable, less stressful journey for our clients and architect partners.

We’ve invested heavily to provide our team with a completely paperless, cloud-based platform, which decreases errors and delays while maximizing employee productivity. Our highly trained, professional staff has real-time access to relevant information, allowing them to engage in accurate, honest communication with our clients and partners. As a fixed price builder and renovator of fine homes, we excel at delivering complicated residential projects with an uncomplicated goal — on time, on budget, happy client.

Simply put, we build it BY THE BOOK.

Chris Risher


After graduating from The University of Texas (BS, Finance), Chris jumped head first into the home building industry. Working for two of the largest national home builders, Chris moved quickly through the ranks – first, managing on-site construction of hundreds of homes, then planning large scale master planned communities. Chris left production building to pursue his love for old houses and fine craftsmanship. Chris’ high standards and eye for detail are a huge asset to our clients and architect partners. In his spare time, Chris is a skilled craftsman – building furniture, cabinets, and even his own home.

Chris is a past board member of the Real Estate Council of Austin and former President for Austin’s National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). Chris is a NARI Certified Remodeler, was named one of Professional Builder magazine’s “40 Under 40″ builders, Professional Remodeler’s “40 under 40”, and is the 2016 Fred Case Remodeling Entrepreneur of the Year.

Jeremy is a graduate of The University of Texas (BS, Engineering with High Honors). As a third generation builder, he started pacing job sites at four years old, at the heels of his father and grandfather.

Jeremy engages heavily in continuing education and certification and is the only Austin professional concurrently holding the two highest designations from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) - Graduate Master Builder and Graduate Master Remodeler. He is also a Certified Graduate Remodeler, Certified Graduate Builder, and Certified Green Professional.
