Tag Gilkeson

Principal Owner

     Tag originally got started in the real estate and construction industry in 1999 after he obtained his Texas REALTOR license. His primary business focus was in investment real estate.   From there, it was an easy transition into buying real estate and flipping houses on his own. He has owned several fix & flips and rental properties along the way.

     In 2009, Tag turned his attention to gaining more knowledge in his field. He obtained an Associate’s degree in Architecture and a Bachelors degree in Construction Management. He was ranked in the top three of his class at graduation while also obtaining a personal recommendation from the program chair.

    Having gained knowledge and experience in his field he decided that it was best to give back to the industry by serving as a board member for the North Dallas Collin County Division for the Dallas Builders Association (DBA). He served for 2 years on the board from 2014 to 2016. Through the help of the other board members, they grew the division from 20 consistent people at luncheons to over 80 people at its peak.

     Since then he has utilized the Dallas Builders Association to obtain knowledge and designations within the industry. At this time, he has 11 designations recognized by the NAHB (National Association of Home Builders). These include  Graduate Master Builder (GMB), Certified Graduate Builder (CGB), Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR), Certified Aging in Place (CAPS), Certified Graduate Associate (CGA), Certified Green Professional (CGP), Master Certified Green Professional (Master CGP),  Certified New Home Sales (CSP), Master Certified New Home Sales (Master CSP), Certified New Home Marketing (CMP), and Master in Residential Marketing (MIRM).  

    Tag has more designations through NAHB than anyone in the county. Tag is constantly utilizing the resources around him to gain more knowledge in his field. He has been recognized as a leader in the industry by the DBA and even asked to share that knowledge by teaching classes to their members.

What our clients say?


We hired Tag early this summer to draw up blue prints for our residential home. I can not say enough about his integrity, creativity, punctuality, professionalism, and knowledge! He showed genuine concerns and interests as if he were going to build this home for his own family. With Tags help we have begun the construction of our dream home. I wouldn’t have any reservations to recommend him to others.”
