    • Candice Hees-May,

      Purchasing & Estimating

      Candice is a native Texan and loves all things Texas, especially the Dallas Cowboys! Her dad was the youngest of 8 kids, so she was fortunate to grow up surrounded by lots of family in the little town of Kingsville. Family and friends mean the world to her, and she is blessed to have 3 of beautiful kids that call her Aunt. In addition, she is recently married to the best husband anyone could ask for and “Mom” to three fur babies she cherishes. Her dad and uncles were all builders, so it was only natural that she ended up in this industry. Her first job was in estimating and purchasing with Toll Brothers (8 years), and more recently, she worked for Champion Windows which is what brought her to Austin.

She also studied interior design after college, which is one of her passions. She began her new home sales and management career in the Orlando, Florida area and was considering a move back to California when she helped a friend move to Austin and fell in love with the city.

    • Tess Giebitz,

      Sales Associate

    • Ryan Villalon,

      Community Builder

      Originally from Corpus Christi, Ryan came to Austin for college and earned his degree in business administration from Concordia University. In what he considers one of the most pivotal moments of his life, he found himself supervising the construction and maintenance of docks on Lake Travis. Ryan took the passion he found for construction management, and his love of the environment, and created a company specializing in building alternative housing. However, he ultimately decided he wanted to supervise bigger projects, which led him to his most recent position as a construction manager for a homebuilder in North Austin. Ryan’s drive to push the standard has made him a great addition to the Spicewood Communities team. Ryan lives in Georgetown with his wife and two dogs, and he spends his free time on the lake, remodeling his house, or taking the dogs on adventures around Central Texas.
