Potomac Custom Builders is a business and family partnership between John Whetsell and Denise Traylor. As husband and wife, the two have brought decades of professional and personal experience in real estate construction, brokerage and finance into their life's chosen work. The result is a portfolio of homes that are architecturally significant, thoughtfully designed and impeccably built.

Before creating Potomac Custom Builders in 2000, John and Denise spent 12 years successfully redesigning, remodeling and remarketing existing homes in Houston.

The experience affirmed their instinct for superior design, their passion for quality and their sense of homeowners' needs, wants and wishes.

The two have remodeled or constructed new homes in many of Houston's close-in neighborhoods. They begin each project in the same way -- by carefully studying buyer preferences to produce a home that is perfectly matched to the market, the neighborhood, the site and owners' expectations.

John augments his field experience with the knowledge and discipline of a Construction Management degree. Denise contributes more than 20 years of experience in real estate lending and finance. The two also offer clients the ease and insight of brokerage services to assist in acquiring a new home site or sell an existing home.

John and Denise take obvious joy in our love of the home that they built.
