Our Team

Kyle Fernandez

Owner

I’m Kyle Fernandez, the owner of Kyle Fernandez Construction. I am a native Texan from the Houston area and have lived in the Austin area since 2012. I am blessed with a beautiful wife inside and out named Nicole. Nicole is a licensed real estate agent with the Beem Team of Coldwell Banker. Nicole and I have a beautiful baby girl named “Tillie Sue” that was born in the summer of 2019. We live in Dripping Springs, TX and stay actively involved in our church as well as serving the community through organizations like “Home In A Month.”
I am a first generation American. My father was born in Cuba and raised there until he was 9 years old when his family fled Communism. Having a father that went through such adversity in life meant that he highly valued teaching me that the best way to succeed in life is to follow the Lord, love your family, and work extremely hard to make your American dream a reality.
When I am not working hard for my clients – which is rare – I love spending time with my family, hunting, fishing, and rooting for my favorite sports teams. The Astros, Texans, and Texas Longhorns.

Nicole Fernandez

Owner

Hi! My name is Nicole Fernandez and I am a Licensed REALTOR who specializes in the Hill Country and Greater Austin area. I play numerous roles, but the two most important are wife and mother. My husband Kyle, our daughter Tillie Sue and I are all native Texans and we wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else. We moved out of Austin to Dripping Springs in 2018 and have fallen in love with the Hill Country. My husband is a custom home builder in this area, so that industry plays a very large role in our family’s daily life.
Before I became a REALTOR, I was an elementary school teacher. I taught for 12 years before taking some time off to be at home with our daughter. Real estate has now become a true passion of mine, so I’m able to combine that with my strong desire to educate and help others.
In my free time – I enjoy ALL that the Texas Hill Country has to offer. From the wineries, family friendly venues, and small-town boutiques. I serve as the social chair for an organization called Dripping Springs MOPS (Mothers of Pre-schoolers). My husband and I attend Austin Ridge Bible Church on Sundays and are actively involved in community volunteer efforts.
My goal is to provide you with the highest level of customer service, professionalism, and knowledge to aid in the real estate process. Whether you are selling your home, looking for a new one, or wanting to lease, I am here for all your real estate needs!

Mike Olien

Senior Project Manager

Mike and his wife Jane are former clients of Kyle Fernandez Construction. Mike was literally born to be a builder. He is the 7th of 8 children from a small town in Northern Wisconsin. His father was a carpenter his entire life and passed his skills and trade on to his youngest son who was an eager learner from the time he could hold a hammer. He moved to Texas over 20 years ago and is now a “forever” resident of Dripping Springs.
Mike has over 40 years of experience in all aspects of the construction industry from hands on residential and commercial building, to sales of tools, building materials and heavy equipment. Mike has yet to meet a building challenge that he is not able to resolve quickly in favor of the client. He has built in the harsh winters of Wisconsin and Illinois, the rocky terrain of Colorado and in the Hill Country of Texas. He has also never met a stranger and has a true love of ensuring that you have a voice along every step of the building journey. He will listen, understand, offer options as needed and provide feedback at every turn. There is no such thing as too much communication when it comes to building your dream home and Mike will deliver the details you need.
Mikes passion for life, pride in his craft and uncompromising quest for quality are immediately evident. He takes on every project as though it’s his own and acts as a guide, teacher, confidante, and cheerleader at each stage of the building process. When Mike is not working (a rare event)he enjoys hunting, working around the yard and hanging out with his wife of 35 years, their son and daughter in law and the true joys of his life, his granddaughter and grandson, be careful asking to see pictures!

Nate Olien

Project Manager

Nate quite literally grew up in his grandpa’s wood shop or helping his Dad with carpentry projects. By the time he was a senior in High School he had a small welding and fab shop of his own (having a dad in the tool game helped a lot!). This is where Nate honed his organization skills and discovered his passion for customer service and detail oriented, creative, yet efficient results. Over the next 10 years, Nate had the opportunity to grow personally and professionally across multiple industries and specialties ranging from apartment maintenance in college, to his most recent role as the Director of Operations for a National Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center. The achievement he is most proud of though is his beautiful family; wife Krista, daughter Ramsi and son Rhett. Nate and Krista landed in Dripping Springs after getting married in 2017, The story of how they *finally* met is a perfect example of God’s timing.
Nate brings a very specific approach to leveraging technology and systems to creatively and efficiently meet the various challenges that go into delivering the absolute highest quality Custom Home for every client!
