Travis Franks, who graduated from the University of North Texas, worked several years for a North Texas homebuilder and later sold plumbing products as a manufacturer’s rep before he went into business with Jody Alumbaugh, a Texas A&M-educated structural engineer. Jody brings over 12 years of experience in construction and design and oversees, evaluates, approves, and coordinates all projects. The pair started in high-end remodels before moving into new construction. WillowTree today has nine luxury homes under construction in Southlake, Westlake, Bartonville, and Colleyville.
The site of this year’s Dream Street has been in the pair’s family since the grandfather of Franks’ wife bought 50 acres in 1955 and ran a small ranch on it for years. The family sold 37 acres to the Carroll schools for the middle school and kept 13 acres. Franks subsequently purchased the site which, today, is Oxford Place.817-617-9105 WEBSITE
