David Hill, President, DHI
David Hill is a native Texan and 1972 graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a BBA in finance. David began his real estate career as a real estate salesman while a student at UT. Following the natural progression of many real estate brokers, he began developing small pad sites in the Austin area and then developed his first subdivision in the Westlake area of Austin in the mid-1970's. In 1977, David and his wife Barbara moved to East Texas as David accepted an opportunity to work for the Temple family's private real estate development and investment company, Exeter Investments. In 1983, David formed DH Investment Company with his colleague from Exeter, Tom Darmstadter.
In 2007, David acquired Mr. Darmstadter's share of DHI.

It's a conservative approach that is the hallmark of David Hill, Cordillera Ranch's founder. Hill built an enormously successful development company in the 1980s by focusing on low-leverage opportunities. David's son, Charlie, now serves as chief financial officer at DH Investments and says his father learned to capitalize on the inevitable downturns in the market.
But when the landowners suggested they were going ahead regardless, Hill reluctantly agreed to enter into a partnership.
Shovels hit dirt in 1997, and right from the beginning the project was different. A development entity was formed, with the Hill family's DH Investment firm taking 50 percent and the original landowners the other 50 percent. True to his fiscal nature, David Hill negotiated the deal without accruing any debt. Charlie says this was essential to the viability of Cordillera Ranch. "A deal this size is going to ultimately be a 25- or 30-year development, and it's just not going to survive with any bank debt on it."
Without the pressure to achieve minimum revenues, the project was free to grow as the market demanded rather than what bankers wanted. "We structured the agreement so that we acquire the land in small chunks from the landowner on a seller's note, which is then paid off when we sell lots," Hill says.
Hill says his sales agents are encouraged to use this debt-free factoid in their pitches.
"I bet at least half of all prospects ask about our debt load," he says.
