About the owners

Third-generation master builder Corey Van Trease has built custom estate homes in Southlake, Colleyville, Westlake, Flower Mound and Argyle. He’s also built and sold homes around Lakeside, including seven condominium villas, two poolside bungalows and eight three-story townhomes.

“Due to the overwhelming demand for single-family homes in the Lakeside community, we knew we needed to partner with a qualified homebuilder that could execute high-integrity, architectural homes with state-of-the-art finishes,” said Jimmy Archie, Realty Capital managing director and Lakeside master developer, in a statement. “We decided to combine Realty Capital’s financing capabilities and development knowledge with Corey’s meticulous [craftsmanship] and 32 years of building experience to create a synergistic partnership that can deliver beautifully designed homes in a timely manner.”

The firm prides itself on delivering excellence with its commitment to quality, Van Trease said in a statement.

“The Villas in Lakeside redefine what luxury living is all about with the focus shifting towards the luxuries that surround the home, not just what exists on the inside,” he said.
