John Paul Listowski
John Paul was born and raised on Galveston Island. Working alongside his father as a kid he learned various trades in the construction industry. This sparked his interest, which lead him to earn his degree in Construction Science from Texas A&M University. After years away he realized his love for the water and the island. He returned to Galveston after his graduation and gained experience by working with land developers and builders specializing in both residential and commercial development. It was at this time when he became actively involved in the community and served on several boards and commissions. With the knowledge learned from both his work experience and community involvement he started HomeLife Builders with the help of Sam Jolin. Currently, John Paul oversees business development and works with the client through the development, planning and bidding stages of their custom home.
