William Cole, president of Divine Renovation and currently vice president of the Remodelers Council in the Greater Houston Builder’s Association (GHBA) offers homeowners a peace of mind in knowing their home investment is accomplished under the care of professionals with the same goal in mind … excellence.
Company and Values
The full-service home remodeling company was founded on Christian values. Like many of its clients, Divine Renovation believes in the values of Trust, Service and Inclusiveness. When asked how Divine Renovation accomplishes this, William replies, “Our clients often express that they are amazed by the politeness and professionalism of our employees whom, after their remodel, are treated by the client as trusted friends.”
In order to achieve this sort of success, it starts with having the right people on the team. For instance, per Divine Renovation’s Operation manual, to be permitted to work inside a client’s home one must possess a peaceful spiritual and physical demeanor and be referred by someone they know because it brings a higher level of accountability.
“Our clients are hiring us because we provide a service which promises peace of mind that their family and possessions will be safe and secure and, yes, that the final product will be high quality. We really are doing more than remodeling houses, we are a service provider,” he says.
Divine Renovation regularly serves single parents, young investors, elderly retirees, military veterans and many others who are in need getting their homes habitable again. This passion for service can be seen throughout Divine Renovation’s operation and even in how it repurposes materials that come out of client’s homes.
The company has an outreach called Working with Angels (workingwithangels.org). “We donate funds and leftover materials to Park Temple Baptist Church, then Pastor Garza distributes them to individuals in dire need,” Cole says. “I remember one day when I delivered a large box of used light bulbs that we had removed from a client’s home, one of the church members thanked me for the bulbs saying now they no longer had to share a bulb. They had been taking the light bulb from room to room in their home. You never know what someone is lacking or going through until you reach out.”
It’s a win for clients too, knowing their items are going to a needy home and to a person or family who will be truly thankful for what has been given to them. William Cole understands a client’s expectations when investing in their home; he started the company because of his own homebuilding experiences.
His background includes a degree in Aeronautics and is a U.S. Air Force Veteran. After working for corporate America and living what many would call a “dream life,” he soon discovered he was missing vital family time at home with his wife. What he was now searching for was the freedom, the ability to serve others in need and the opportunity to build relationships with his local community.
“Building is something I stumbled into, it was in 1998 that I hired a builder to build a home for myself to live in and another home to sell as an investment,” he recalls. Through a series of unanticipated events, we ended up having to complete the homes ourselves and in no time he was getting calls from friends and family asking for help with their homes. What started as a small investment soon turned into a successful design and build firm.
