Winning experience

image Felicia Foster was recently recognized with four awards from the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin.

AUSTIN – Felicia Foster, principal of Barron Custom Design, is a third-generation Austinite and proud of it. Her roots go deep in Austin culture, and her grandfather was the first three-time All American at the University of Texas in the 1940s.

    Although Foster established Barron Custom Design in 2003, she has more than 27 years of experience in real estate, landscape, architecture, design and construction. Currently, her firm handles residential design, small commercial design, large-scale remodel additions and consulting.
    “It’s my job to shepherd people through the process, and design something that is truly a reflection of them from step one,” Foster says. “It’s also my responsibility and pleasure to choose things that are in-line with their budget and meet their needs.  Everyone deserves a well-designed house.”
    Foster relates a funny story that happened one day when she received a call from a potential customer who was looking for someone to remodel her house.
    “She was a referral, and it turned out after discussing the house, that it was one that I drew back in 1990,” Foster says. “Luckily, I hadn’t designed it, but I had been working for an architect at the time.  Now we’re great friends and it has led to multiple other projects.  Being in business for as long as I have, I truly believe it is the relationships that you build in the business that matter the most.”
    On Apr. 12, Foster was recognized for her success by earning four MAX Awards for Best Custom Home Product Design by the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin (HBA).
    “I love living and working in Austin,” she said.  “It is such a fantastic city and the people are what make it such a great place to live.  My business is always evolving as the city does, and I can’t wait to see what happens next!” –cw
