If you call or visit Stone Creek Custom Homes, the first person you’re likely to meet is Brad Ynostrosa, our Director of Sales. Brad has been with us since 2004. He relocated from Dallas to work with Jesse and Jason, but it was a long, adventurous road to get here.
Brad and Jesse have known each other for over twenty years and were actually roommates in Dallas at one time, and he has been friends with Jason for over ten years now. Brad was enrolled at Texas State when he decided he wanted to go into the Fire Service.
Brad: I wanted to be a firefighter, so I went back to Dallas from San Marcos in an effort to get into the fire academy and EMT school. It’s not an easy career path to get into. At the time they only accepted 21 candidates out of approximately 600 applicants per year. I was blessed enough to make it in and graduate. A short time later, a good friend approached me with a very attractive opportunity to work for a home builder and I couldn’t pass it up. I wish I could have done both – I have a great deal of respect for firefighters.
One thing led to another and before long Brad had experience, not only building homes, but working with concrete, real estate, and building material sales. Fulfilling his desire to return to the Texas Hill Country, he and his wife took a leap of faith and moved to SA. His vast knowledge makes him an asset to Stone Creek. He goes above and beyond to help clients find the ideal land for their home and devise a truly custom floor plan that suits their lifestyle, including design needs and budget parameters.
Brad: I love it when our clients don’t already have land picked out. It puts me in action! I’m eager to offer up any assistance to those in need of land. It’s a difficult task for those don’t know what to look for. It’s my job to look at land and know what it means from a cost standpoint and provide honest feedback to our customers.
When it comes to his personal life, Brad is a proud husband and father of three girls, including twins that aren’t identical but look identical.
Brad: We love the outdoors! As for me, my three favorite things I like to do are hunting, fishing and golf. As a family, I would say anything to do with the water or outdoors. The kids love the beach. We go to the Seaside area of Florida each summer. They also love staying at my Dad’s ranch. There’s no place they’d rather be than at the beach or what they call, “Poppi’s Cow Farm,” even though my dad no longer has cows. I know I am blessed to have a job I love, three beautiful daughters and an amazing wife that supports me in all I do (including my outdoor adventures that can sometimes take me away from home for more than a few days at a time!).
Brad also enjoys offshore fishing and is gearing up for the annual guy’s trip to Port Mansfield in July. If you’re looking to meet Poppi, Brad’s father moved to San Antonio part-time to be closer to his granddaughters and opened up a traditional barbershop called RY Barbershop, just outside of Timberwood Park. Come by for great conversation and an old-school shave and haircut!
