Building Dreams  


Being a homeowner has been a staple of the American dream for as long as it has existed. To live and own one’s space, to have a personal haven to bear one’s life, a place where one can relax, raise a family, and make memories that will last for a lifetime, has been the image of prosperity for generations.

Ensuring the utmost quality of design and assembly is essential in raising a dream. Ariva Homes is a family-owned residential construction company set on delivering people their aspirations of a lifetime and guiding their customers along the process.

Ariva, however, does far more than just home building. It is a multifaceted construction company long involved in commercial construction and land development. Profusely experienced, the company has operated for over 25 years, erecting many successful projects. It has recently completed just under 1 million square feet in dry stack warehouse projects. The company was previously known as KRK Construction, only transitioning through a rebrand into Ariva Homes three years ago.

“Ariva was born with a clear mission — to craft affordable, high-quality homes and communities that resonate with the diverse needs of our clients. Ariva Homes is one of the largest family-owned homebuilders in South Texas. Our goal is to build not just homes but lifelong memories and relationships. Since then, we’ve been dedicated to transforming dreams into homes,” said Rico Rodriguez, Division President for Ariva Homes.

The constructions of Ariva Homes are defined by their craftsmanship and commitment to creating a personally intimate space, inviting to the heart and the eye, pleasing all senses of the human experience. All their homes are built sturdily from first-class building materials such as stucco, which prolongs the durability and extends the value of a home. Each home is also fenced, enhancing the privacy and protection of one’s personal space. Every construction also comes equipped with a warranty.

“Ariva takes pride in crafting homes designed by highly qualified architects and engineers. Our homes are built to last, with meticulous attention to detail.”

“Warranty we offer is one year door-to-door, two years on plumbing, electric and HVAC, and 10 years structural. We are one of the only builders in the valley offering this product and are one of the only ones that have a full-time warranty team,” said Rodriguez.

Ariva Homes do more than build houses; instead, they erect entire communities. The company has developed a multitude of different neighborhoods all over Laredo. It will soon be constructing new subdivisions in the RGV. Each community is different, with its unique location and select styles. However, they are all tied together by Ariva’s notable sophistication. Neighborhoods are strategically planned and located, with easy access to vital roads, shopping centers, and schools.

“At Ariva, our commitment to integrity, professionalism, and social responsibility is unwavering. We uphold the highest standards of ethics, ensuring that every home we build reflects these values in its very foundation,” said Rodriguez

The company also prides itself on offering variety, appealing to a large customer base, and meeting individuals’ diverse needs. When picking a home, Ariva provides multiple plans, or they can design a custom home plan based on customer specifications. Ariva’s designs are defined by a commitment to modernity, delivering the client a home at par with the times.

“Our design philosophy is dynamic and responsive to market trends. We aim not only to meet but to exceed modern design expectations, ensuring that each Ariva home stands as a testament to refined living.”

“From first-time homebuyers embarking on a new chapter to those seeking their forever home, to high-end luxury customers seeking top-notch white glove treatment. Ariva welcomes any customer who values quality and distinction,” said Rodriguez.
