In an industry where "greenwashing" is often misrepresented as green building, Capsa has been proactively changing the way Austin is built. With a commitment to build responsibly and sustainably, each new project builds on the prior ones, raising the bar on green development. From solar panels to rainwater collection systems and comprehensive use of recycled and recyclable materials, every Capsa community has been more sustainable than the last.
As Capsa expanded into building homes, Capsa Homes was born. The Capsa Homes team relies on the forethought and planning derived from "eco-engineering and design" to ensure every project challenges the industry status quo.

Scott has 22 years of experience in sales, marketing, and brand management. Early in his career, Scott managed experiential marketing campaigns introducing consumer product goods into new markets in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area. Wanting to elevate his career, he moved to Chicago where he landed at a marketing agency developing and managing regional marketing campaigns to promote brand awareness, lead generation and introduce new products throughout the Midwest for General Motors. Scott moved back to Austin in 2009 to work with Audi of America managing their brand standards with 200+ dealerships and advertising agencies across the country. While the automotive segment was exciting, Scott’s passion was real estate, which steered him to Aspen Heights where he was a regional marketing manager for their multi-family developments, and then to Core Spaces as their director of marketing where he created marketing campaigns for new and existing developments across the U.S. After an extraordinary amount of travel (and two kiddos at home), Scott joined the company in 2016 to oversee marketing, sales and branding for their developments. Since that time, Scott has been promoted twice, and now works with the executive team with oversight on land acquisition, due diligence, entitlements, design, construction and all warranty related matters.
