After graduating from Davidson College and following a successful career in fundraising and non-profit development, Polly has worked behind the scenes at Provenance Builders since the beginning. For years, she and Dan did residential renovation the old fashioned way - on their own and after hours. Renovating their own homes as they moved across the country they settled back in Polly's home city of Dallas nearly 20 years ago where their shared passion for real estate, fine architecture, and client service became their business. She supports client development for the firm and manages community outreach. Her many roles in the non-profit sector bear testament to the commitment Provenance Builders has for the neighborhoods we touch.

Steven lives in East Dallas with his wife and daughter and their "first child" Layla, a yellow lab. They enjoy spending time outside, hiking, skiing and attending TCU Football games in the Fall.
