About Mike and Barbara Feigin
Mike and Barbara Feigin started Design Tech Homes in 1997. Within two short years, the company made the list of HBJ’s fastest growing companies in Houston. Throughout the next several years, the Feigins decided it was not enough to just design and build homes efficiently and affordably. They wanted to move beyond a “selling” approach and aimed to better educate consumers on the products and systems that are a part of the construction process. Mike, as CEO, and Barbara, as CFO, listened closely to their homebuyers and decided to give them exactly what they had been asking for – real, solid, peace of mind that comes with knowing that their home is well built and able to stand the test of time. That’s when it happened. Design Tech Homes became one of the most productive custom builders to surpass industry standards in design, construction and longevity.
Leading by example, Mike and Barbara Feigin believe it’s important to give back and give back they do. They regularly support several charities in the greater Houston area including Texas Children’s Hospital, New Danville, Angelman’s Syndrome Foundation, , and Interfaith of The Woodlands among others. Every spring, they host an annual gala, which benefits the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children’s Hospital. To date, the gala has raised over $1.5 million in funds to further advance research for neurological disorders.
As long-time residents and business owners, the Feigins learned the importance of giving back to their community while growing up. Mike’s father, the late Dr. Ralph Feigin, was considered the most important pediatrician of the past 25 years. The younger Feigin saw first-hand his father’s unwavering commitment to improve the lives of others through a life of service and medicine and wanted to keep his dad’s legacy alive. Through helping others and charitable giving, both Barbara and Mike Feigin are leaving indelible footprints in their community.
