"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will."

My name is Stephen Barrera, and I am a student in the Master of Land and Property Development program at Texas A&M University. I have aspirations to become a leader in the development community. My plan is to approach my career in land development with an entrepreneurial, holistic mindset that incorporate best design practices to piece together value that is found not only through returns on a balance sheet, but also in developing unique, clever, and quality projects that obtain a higher quality of life and sense of place for the community.

Currently, I am employed with The Johnson Development Corp. working as the Development Manager for Woodforest Development, a 3,000+ acre site master-planned community located in Montgomery County. The Johnson Development Corp. is a Houston-based, award winning residential and commercial land development company which for more than three decades has set the standard for the nation's finest master-planned communities.

" I don't know how to build a successful community without; God's help, Hard work, Great vision, Great team, Loving people, Generous members. Love the Lord God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind."
