Tory Garcia, Principal

Makena founder, Tory Garcia, was raised on a farm in a small town in Central Oregon. It was on this farm that he learned about hard work, doing things right and respecting the land and people you work with. After graduation from high school, Tory earned his degree from Oregon State University. Following his college studies, he went on to a project management position with Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale, CA. While at WDI, Tory was not only trained in the Disney ideals of exceptional design, unparalleled quality and uncompromising guest experience, but he also learned project management from one of the world’s premier project management companies. Tory and the team he was part of built numerous attractions in Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM Studios and Animal Kingdom theme parks. Eventually, and despite a rewarding and extremely successful tenure with WDI, Tory’s native Oregon called him home.

Upon his return to Oregon, Tory set out to build Makena Custom Homes on the same foundation of exceptional design, quality and client experience that he had learned while at WDI.  To accomplish this, Makena team members are chosen based on personal values of integrity, tireless passion, creativity and a commitment to excellence. It’s no surprise then that the homes Makena builds are a reflection not only of our company values and ideals, but also of the talented people at Makena who build them.

  • "Tory and Toby worked closely with us in developing and refining our home design.  As we hadn't built a home before, their suggestions, perspective and help in selecting materials and fixtures was invaluable.  They were truly our partners every step of the way.  When it came to construction, their insistence on quality materials and performance resulted in a home we’re really proud of and that we’ll enjoy for years to come."
