Over the years Robert, along with his brother, has transformed RJ Fite from a weekend passion to an expansive business by actively focusing on communication and quality. As a fully licensed General Contractor with a background in painting, electrical, plumbing, framing, and fastener systems, he has over 20 years of experience in construction and has worked for various Fortune Global 500 companies at the corporate level. Holding accreditations in negotiation, business leadership, business growth, construction business management, and Code Compliance, his unique experience has allowed him to gain a full understanding of the processes needed to successfully complete projects of any scale or nature. If fact, he’s had a hand in many largescale renovations, including University Hospital in San Antonio and Peterson Regional Hospital in Kerrville. He’s seen every facet of the industry and is always ready to adapt to the situation in front of him. On the rare day off you can find him hunting, fishing, or boating. At a very young age Robert developed an affinity for the outdoors, and now he loves sharing that passion with his family.

Justin’s passion for all things construction began in a small woodshop class at Taft High School just down the road. He enjoyed working with his hands and building things that he could be proud of and decided to pursue that. He already had a natural gift for creativity but wanted to see how far he could take it, so he began studying construction management while working as a Quality Control Supervisor for Pioneer Flour Mills. Soon after, he started RJ Fite with Robert. To him, the prospect of building a respectable family business from scratch appeared to be his most challenging and exciting project yet. Since then he has overseen the completion of thousands of jobs, and his unique flair for detail shows in each one. When he’s not hard at work he loves spending time with his wife and daughter or rebuilding classic cars and trucks.
“Success isn’t always about Greatness. it’s about consistency. Consistent, hard work gains success. Greatness will come.”

Inspired by those words and by his continually growing family, Nick has always loved to watch things grow and realize their potential. He learned at a young age that your environment has a major effect on who you are and that it’s important to be somewhere you’re comfortable. Not long after, he decided he wanted to help others find or create that space for themselves. He entered the industry as a field representative for an accomplished broker and saw hundreds of homes realize their potential, often at the hands of RJ Fite. It was clear to him that they had a similar vision, and since 2014 has happily worked firsthand with the Fite family to see the vision through. After hours you can catch him at various venues around town enjoying music and a beer.
