Chris Werth is the co-founder of Pura Vida Homes. With 24 years of experience in the homebuilding industry, Chris has managed and overseen the construction and sales of over 5,000 homes in the Greater Austin metro area.
As a division president for a fortune 500 company and later a top 20 national home builder, Chris sharpened his skills in acquiring land, developing neighborhoods, building successful teams, and overseeing all aspects of the homebuilding business.
A resident of Austin for over 15 years, Chris always dreamed of starting a homebuilding operation focusing on infill projects within the city. Pura Vida Homes is the result of that dream. As such, Pura Vida’s core principles include delivering high quality, sustainable housing for current and future Austin residents.
Chris lives with his wife of 30 years in Austin. Together they have one daughter, of whom they are very proud.
Kris Sutton is the co-founder of Pura Vida Homes. With 10 years of experience in the homebuilding industry, Kris has managed and overseen the construction and sale of over 2,000 homes in the Greater Austin metro area.
As both a vice president of sales for a national builder and, since 2014, an Austin realtor, Kris gained in-depth knowledge of what Austin families expect from a homebuilder.
A resident of Austin for over 15 years, Kris has also been involved in the revitalization of over 30 infill homes in the Austin area and will continue to deliver high quality, sustainable housing for current and future Austin residents with Pura Vida Homes.
Kris lives with his wife in Austin and can’t imagine a better place to raise their two children.
