Goodchild Builders


Dear Steve,

Please receive my kind regards which I extend to you with this letter which is long overdue.

With this correspondence I want you to know how much Janie and I appreciate the outstanding job you did building our home. Thank you for putting your heart and soul into it. It really shows.

Steve, Janie and I are so grateful for your and Sabrina's friendship over the past 25 years. When we decided to build our home there was no one else we even considered to work with besides you. It was such a pleasure working with you.

You had a great right hand man in Adam Hernandez and your subcontractors were all gentlemen and artisans in their field. Our home has allowed us to enjoy our large and growing family and to entertain our friends in style.

Please feel free to show our home to prospective customers of yours. We will do whatever we can to help you continue to be successful.

Please let me know if ever I can be of service to you in any way.

Please be sure to give Sabrina my warmest regards.

With much appreciation for your longstanding friendship, I remain, as always, Sincerely yours,

Steven F. Hotze, M.D.
Chief Executive Officer

I tell EVERYONE that Steve Goodchild is the BEST builder. There are very few builders who bend over backwards accommodating their clients and also maintain a great working relationship with all their contractors. Steve goes over and beyond what is asked and he has a proven tract record with plenty of repeat customers!! Congratulations to y'all, we love and appreciate you!

Fondly, Janie Hotze

Carol Ann and I wanted to state very clearly how pleased we are with the job your firm did for us and especially the work of Jeff on the job. His professionalism, attention to detail, his focus on always doing things the "right" way and his friendly demeanor really does reflect well on your company. We felt very secure having workmen in the house these past few months, knowing that Jeff was always in the house with them. Jeff will be sorely missed by some of the neighbors as he became their friends.

Carol Ann was very appreciative of the David's "design eye" during the process of construction by asking questions and making recommendations to Carol Ann which improved several design features of the addition and working out details particularly with the lightening fixture store.

Bottom line, we couldn't be happier with the job and would comfortably recommend any of friends to consider you in their construction plans.

Do not hesitate to use us as a reference.


I have worked with Steve Goodchild since 2003. I have seen him build many quality relationships and quality homes in the years I have worked with him. I continue to work with him because he is a man of his word, and cares about delivering a quality product. You will not find a better builder in Houston.

Goodchild Builders handled the renovation of my kitchen, master bathroom and master closet. The work was done on time and on budget. Results were excellent.

I can count on Steve to understand exactly what he is doing and I can be confident that it will be done right...or he will fix it. Period.

Paul Cagle

Steve and his team are top-notch simply put. They strive to create valuable solutions in tough situations. Always looking to do right by their client first you can rest assured that Steve has your interests placed first in the process. Personable service and always there to take a call, fix a problem, or create a solution.

I have lived in 4 homes built by Steve Goodchild over the last 10 years and I can't wait for #5. He is creative and very client service-oriented. I highly suggest Goodchild Builders.

Allan Avery

Steve is a can-do guy. He is available and capable of providing solutions to problems that arise. As a builder, he builds a very sound house with excellent detail work and attention to detail. I would definitely recommend Steve to take care of your building or general contractor needs.

Steve Goodchild is the kind of builder that could give other builders a bad name; he does what he says he'll do. And what he says he'll do is pretty dang wonderful. Don't let Steve's good ol' boy facade fake you out; Steve is an experienced construction professional with a great grasp on what's possible. He's built a thing or two and I don't think there's much he hasn't seen. He speaks your language and gets in your head to understand what's important to you. He is honest as the day is long and assumes you'll be that way, too. And his team is just as professional (can't possibly say enough good stuff about Juan) including the team of loyal subcontractors Steve manages. Don't tell Steve, but we love him and our architect loves him too. I'm sure someone doesn't love him, but I can't figure out who. Our home started as a simple remodel. Before we were finished blowing up the project, it was a restoration with a doubling of square footage and an impossible set of design, budget, and delivery mandates. Not sure why Steve agreed to take this project but we couldn't be happier. To sum it up, if you don't use Steve Goodchild, I believe you may have lost your mind.

Steve Goodchild is a good builder, works hard to be responsive to the homeowner and is excellent on walking you through all the decisions that must be made in building a custom home. After completion he has remained available to advise and assist on other projects for us. Deanna and I would highly recommend Steve for any residential construction project.

Rebecca and I would like to thank Goodchild Builders for the beautiful home we live in today. We were very pleased with the building process and the results. Building a home, with all the details, emotions, and $$ involved, can be a very trying ordeal. Steve and Juan's expertise and counsel was invaluable as we navigated the ups and downs of the process. Their vision and attention to detail produced a home that is beautiful and functional.

We really felt like we were in a partnership with Goodchild Builders, rather than a customer. This relationship went a long way in making the journey a smooth one, as we felt as though our interests were aligned with Goodchild Builders throughout the project.

It was very evident that both Steve and Juan have a real passion for home building and not just the "business" of home building, and this is an important distinction. Additionally, it was obvious that Goodchild Builders takes a great deal of pride in their projects during and after completion, which has been our distinct experience in the 6 months following our move-in. They have continued to be very responsive to questions and concerns as they have arisen.

Finally, Steve and Juan are great guys and it has been a pleasure working with them. It's been a lot of hard work, yet we have become close friends during the past year. We are extremely pleased with the end product, but as I have learned, this is not the only important piece to the building puzzle. It's very important to have builders that you trust and respect, and that is what we found with Goodchild Builders.

Our Sincere Thanks,
Lee and Rebecca Jackson

Dear Steve,

This is the first of many thanks over the coming months of Smither Park. I though it was a perfect ground breaking and it wouldn't have been possible without you! I love your enthusiasm and spirit. It means so much to all of us involved in the park - we appreciate it more than you can possibly know.

Even though this is just the beginning and we have a lot to do, I can hardly wait for the Grand Opening.

With Gratitude,

Goodchild Builders, Inc.
