Ray Built Quality Homes, LLC is a local home builder managed by Mike Ray. Mike was born and raised in Lafayette, LA and has a deep love, understanding and appreciation for both the area and the people.
Mike began his career in the residential home industry in Lafayette working as a Realtor® for a local broker. After obtaining his bachelor’s degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette he moved to Austin, TX where he got his start in new home construction working for a regional home builder. While in Texas, Mike performed multiple functions within the industry; starting out as an assistant superintendent and working his way up to purchasing manager of one of the four divisions within the company. Mike also received his MBA from St. Edwards University while in Austin.
In 2013, Mike returned to Lafayette after being offered a role overseeing all construction activities for the Acadiana region of a major Gulf Coast home builder. With more than 15 years of experience in the residential home industry, and roles encompassing every facet in the industry, Mike decided to venture out on his own. After working for two privately held “Top 30” home builders, Mike has learned what works and what does not work; not only with scheduling and construction techniques but also with the most important component in the equation, you, the homeowner.
