Jim Sexton was inspired by the artists and craftsmen in his family.
"My German grandfather was an incredible craftsman and ever since I can remember, I wanted to follow in his footsteps." Immediately after high school, Jim attended St. Cloud Technical Institute. He received a construction degree after graduating at the top of his class from the 2 year program. In 1982, Jim moved from Minnesota to Lewisville, Texas and started working as a finish carpenter for area home builders. After working for some of the area's best builders, Jim quickly realized that most had little or no qualifications and construction experience. In 1983, while continuing to do finish carpentry for other builders, Jim built his first home doing most of the work himself. "Truthfully, I did a lot of the work myself because I couldn't find subcontractors that could meet my expectations." Over the past 27 years, Jim Sexton has established an unparalleled reputation for offering unique architectural design, extraordinary quality and exceptional service.

Ray Higgins graduated from New Mexico State in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering. Ray spent the next 9 years in the commercial construction industry as a Project Engineer, Superintendent and Construction Manager. Ray's responsibilities included managing numerous large commercial buildings including The Ronald Reagan Center in Los Angeles, CA. In 1993, Jim Sexton hired Ray as a Project Manager to oversee construction. Ray's engineering degree and commercial experience became an invaluable addition as homes became more challenging to design and to build. Ray gradually took on more responsibility and in 1998 Ray Higgins became the Owner and President of Jim Sexton Homes. Ray personally oversees construction and operations, while Jim focuses his talents helping customers with home site selection, design, and estimating.
