Lovers of God and Community
For over 30 years, Jack, Verna, and the Isbell family have been involved with numerous church activities across the country. Each time they moved with their fresh Army orders in hand, they immediately sought out a new church to call home.
As a US Army Chaplain, Jack has preached at many pulpits, but his favorite church projects involved the founding and building of new places of worship. Jack led the project management during the founding of the Twin Creeks Baptist Church in Gatesville, Texas, as well as a second church in California, totalling over 100,000 square feet of worship space. The two churches now serve thousands of people. He is proud to say he helped with contracting, drawing blueprints, securing funds, and overseeing the churches’ construction.
By his side every Sunday for four decades, Verna has also been an instructor, mentor, and bookkeeper at numerous churches.
Jack and Verna founded their business with their personal values in mind. They bring true heart to the relationships with their homeowners and renters, and they teach all the members of their team to do the same. With the goal of being the best resource for military members stationed at Fort Hood who are looking for real estate investments, a home to purchase, or places for rent, Jack and Verna are glad to be at home in Killeen, Texas. They take care of every home they manage as if it was their own.
