With regard to the company’s operations, Bobby’s highest priority is that his team makes every effort to uphold contractual obligations, conduct all business with integrity, and provide incomparable customer service. His direct involvement in each project from design to move in is what impresses most of his clients. As Arnold says, “you don’t just hire our team; you become a part of it.” Bobby has equipped his team with the management tools and authority necessary to navigate through circumstances that arise in the construction process, resulting in a more efficient process. As a result, Arnold Builders has designed and constructed some of the most recognized luxury homes from Temple to North Austin. His love of family and friends is the driving force behind his desire to create the environments where the most significant moments in life are shared.
Having grown up in Temple, since childhood, Bobby chose to start his business and raise his family here since 1993. His mission was to create custom luxury homes, with innovative architecture and performance, designed to set Arnold Builders apart. Distinctive design, superior quality and extraordinary style are the principles on which Arnold Builders was created. Bobby brings 25 years of experience and integrity, along with a base of subcontractors maintaining the highest standard of quality and workmanship. This is why the Arnold brand is highly recognized in resale homes as well. His passions include golf, hunting and music, but most important is his love for his faith, family and friends.
