Founder, Chief Executive Officer
Al Ross Luxury Homes
A 40-year resident of the Bayou City, Ross moved to Houston at age 13. Born and raised in Iran, he was sent to the United States by his parents in search of a better life. Living on his own with his older brother, he worked full-time through high school and college. He started his own business, National Signs, at the age of 28 with $200 in his pocket.
With a commitment to hard work and ethical business practices, Ross built National Signs from the ground up. He turned it into one of the largest and most respected companies in Texas before selling it in 2011.
While building a successful company, Ross also spent three years building his own home in Houston’s Memorial neighborhood. The 17,000-square-foot French Chateau home was unlike any other in the area or even the city, unique in its depth of detail and quality and the amount of thought and synergy it produced. Every element was hand-selected or custom-designed to create a certain personality.
That process ignited a spark within Ross that became a passion for building homes. He created Al Ross Luxury Homes in 2012 with a lofty goal: to revolutionize the custom home-building industry. He wanted others to experience luxury, value and quality beyond anything they ever had before.
