The Salcedos also understand that right matches are equally important in building a support team. “The labor shortage issue has not adversely affected our business because we place a high priority on building relationships and loyalty with suppliers and subcontractors. If you treat others as you would want to be treated, then they will want to work with you!” Brian says.
Opportunity and search for a new beginning brought the Salcedo family to Dallas from Seattle in 2011. Before forming Salcedo Homes in 2017, Brian got to know the market and the methods here by working for other home builders. “It is different from Seattle. I had never built a post tension slab foundation before,” Brian said, adding that there were many other things that were different, but much was the same. “The ability to communicate, budget, schedule and resolve problems are the keys to success no matter where you are building,” he said.
His own talents are obvious, but Brian is extremely humble and appreciative of all that Sarah brings to the table, of the team that supports their vision and of all that led to the establishment of Salcedo Homes in Dallas-Fort Worth. It was divine intervention that brought all of it together, he says. The Salcedos have four children and believe in making them part of the business, too. “The children love going to the job sites, chatting on FaceTime or bringing dad dinner to the office if it’s going to be a late night. This is a family business and we are dedicated no matter what it takes,” says Sarah.
