Lucretia moved to Houston in 1911 with her husband Manuel, an artist and art history professor, and their thirteen children. Lucretia began to purchase land and small houses throughout the Houston area. She then established Mendiola Real Estate in 1921.

During the 20s, 30s and 40s, she continued to purchase land, small houses and buildings for rent. Upon his return from World War II through the 60s, Joseph, the youngest of the 13 children, began to build and sell homes to returning veterans.
