About Us

Magruder Homes customs move in ready College StationOwners, Tyan and John Magruder’s story began when Tyan moved from Slidell, LA to John’s hometown of Bellville, TX during their Junior Year of High School. Both attended and graduated from Texas A&M, and were highly involved in student life on campus. For his Senior Year, John was elected to serve as a Senior Yell Leader and received the Buck Weirus Spirit Award for the 2003-2004 academic year. Tyan and John were married in 2005 and have been blessed with two beautiful children, Jack and Cate.


In college, John’s summer job in residential and multi-family construction laid the foundation for his future as a home builder and business owner. Established in 2007, Magruder Homes continues to be one of the fastest growing home building companies in Bryan / College Station and the Brazos Valley. Its continued growth earned them the prestigious Aggie 100 award in 2013.


A husband and wife team, Tyan and John offer a unique home building experience. Tyan focuses on each home’s design, while John oversees the construction and administrative activities.  Magruder Homes also has some of the most experienced and knowledgeable subcontractors in B/CS working on their job sites, many of which have been with John since the company formed.
