“I’ve been with Heritage Homes for 26 years now. They are a great company to work for and an equally great company to build with. With over 40 years in this business, I have experienced most phases of the construction process. I find it very fulfilling to help people find the right home at a price they can afford. My job is to help people find the right home or change a home to fit their specific needs, work out the related price, prepare contracts, get blueprints ready and help with financing when needed.”
“I have a great deal of experience in home plan design. I tell people to find the plan closest to what they want, then sit down with me and tell me what they are really looking for. You would be surprised at how quickly this process is handled to the great satisfaction of our customers. If you need help with finding your plan, call and make an appointment. I can help!”
“My job as the Marketing Director is to create awareness of the Heritage Homes brand and the value we offer. I make sure that our customers know what sets us apart from the other local home builders.

The people of Heritage Homes work with customers on every step of building their new home, from the initial choosing of the plan, through financing and closing to make this process as smooth and orderly as possible.

“I’ve been an employee with Heritage Homes since 2006. However, I’ve worked as an outside consultant and sub-contractor with the Heritage Homes Family since 1992. During those early years, I provided house plan drawings, pre-construction lot inspections, construction support and sales assistance. My 38 plus years in the architectural engineering industry gives me an inside scoop on what it takes to answer clients’ and potential clients’ concerns about their new homes.
My decision to join the Heritage Homes Team was based on my respect for the quality of construction of the builders and the overall professional management of the business. I’ve always been impressed by the attention to details the Heritage Homes Family utilizes for every new home we build for our clients. Heritage Homes negotiates the best material and labor prices so our homes can remain affordable.

My favorite part of my job is making customers feel like they are part of the Heritage Homes Family from the first time they call or walk through the door. If I can set someone at ease or make them laugh, it’s a good day.

“I am the person you see when you walk into the Pensacola office. I answer phone calls, do walk throughs of our model home, help assist customers in gathering their pre-construction documents, apply for permits, and assist customers in the color room. My favorite part of my role at Heritage Homes if being able to see customers through from their first walk through of our model home to closing on their home.
I graduated from Pensacola State College with an Associates of Arts degree in General Studies with a focus in Early Childhood Education. I worked at Heritage Homes part time from 2017-2018. I came back to work full time in February of 2021 and love what I do!”
“I became part of the Heritage Homes’ team in 2003. Since that time, I have helped numerous families move into their new home. I communicate with our customers, lenders, and title companies to ensure that the funding is available for a smooth closing process.
It gives me great pleasure being the last person that the customer sees and the one to give them the keys to their beautiful new home.”
“I’ve been with Heritage Homes since its inception. You might say I grew up with Heritage Homes. I work with people to make sure the lots are ready and help the other builders when they need assistance. This company has always put the customer first. As the vice president of construction, it’s my job to make sure we don’t forget that. But with the great builders we have, that’s not much of a problem. I’m always available to help out a customer if they run into a problem or have something they don’t understand.”
”When you build your new home, you won’t be seeing me until after your home is complete and you have moved in. My main priority is taking care of concerns from homeowners regarding the warranty of their new home. A new home has thousands of moving parts. We try and keep any issues at a minimum but, with that many parts, there are occasions where concerns can arise after you’ve moved in. I’m here to manage those concerns and get them repaired in a timely manner.
When you have a good experience building your home, I want that to continue – even after the build. I get the most gratification when I see that our homeowner is happy and satisfied that we’ve addressed their concern and they get to continue enjoying their home for years to come.”
Donnie has been working with Heritage Homes for over 30 years. Most of those years, he was a subcontractor for the company, installing all of our trim work. In the most recent years, he moved in-house to help in our warranty department. Donnie has 3 sons and 4 grandchildren, his pride and joy!
“As a builder, I work with clients from orientation to completion of the new home. I will ensure that every part of your new home is satisfactory. My favorite part of the homebuilding process is when the house is turned over to the homeowners and it becomes a home.”
“I am so excited to be a part of the Heritage Homes Family. I joined the team in May 2019 as Executive Assistant/Office Manager after 7 years of working in the construction business.

The construction of a new home is a big process and it takes all of us working as a team. I am happy to be a part of this team by helping the construction department run smoothly.”

“My name is Butch and I am one of the superintendents over our Mississippi area. I have over 24 years of experience in construction and 4 years with Heritage Homes. After 15 years away, I recently returned to the Heritage Homes Family and I am happy to be back!
My favorite part of being a superintendent is watching the excitement on the face of our homeowners when the slab is poured. It is the first thing they can actually see towards their home being built and it is when they think ’Wow, this is the beginning of my dream home.’ We build a relationship with the homeowners and it is fun to be next to them as they watch it from start to completion of the home.”
“I knew I wanted to be in construction when I was 10 years old. I started out working with my dad for his company, being his gopher and learning the tricks of the trade. As I got older, I was given more responsibility and grew to love the construction industry and the process of building a home. I’ve consistently worked in construction since then and it has brought me here to Heritage Homes.
One of my favorite things about working for Heritage Homes is seeing someone’s patch of dirt turn into a home. It is a matter of pride to me to know what was put into that home to get it there – the time and teamwork among our crew and subcontractors. My role in the process is to check on the jobs and make sure that each subcontractor has completed their parts to our standards and then at the end to help finish up any punch list items so the homeowners can get moved in.”

“My dad was a builder and taught me everything there is to know about building a home. I started on my own in 1991 and have never looked back. My role with the company, as a superintendent, is to check every job site and evaluate the work that was done the previous day. I check my jobs frequently to ensure the highest quality. I will then schedule the next step or make corrections as needed. My favorite part of working for Heritage Homes is getting to interact with our wonderful homeowners!”
Eric is married and has 5 children ranging from 15 to 28 years old.
“My role with Heritage Homes is to work directly with you to ensure that your needs and questions are met concerning the build of your new home. I will oversee construction of your home and work with our subcontractors and vendors to guarantee that the build meets our quality standards. One of the perks of working out in the field is that I get to see firsthand the excitement in our homeowners’ eyes when they see their new home. The construction of a new home is a big process and it takes all of us working as a team. I am happy to be a part of this team by helping the construction department run smoothly.”

Matt has a way of building strong relationships with his subcontractors and suppliers to help make the process run as smooth as possible for the Heritage Homeowners. Matt doesn’t consider building houses work, but when he’s not on the job, he’s more than likely fishing or spending time with his family!
“The smiles are the best part of this job!” Matt says, “Working with happy homeowners make all the hard work worthwhile.”
I am over Purchasing and Estimating for Heritage Homes. My main duties are to complete job takeoffs, to model pricing, and to purchase material. Throughout the day, I communicate with our superintendents to solve any issues we may have with materials. In order to manage our costs, I also consistently check the pricing of these material to make sure that we are staying as efficient as possible and are able to pass on any savings to our homeowners.
It brings me joy knowing that every time I complete a takeoff, it is helping the homeowner become one step closer to moving into their new home. I have enjoyed working with our talented team and am lucky to get to work for a company with such a great culture.
