Our Name

One spring morning in April, my Dad and I were fishing on the Ouachita River in my home town of Monroe, Louisiana. We would go fishing as often as our schedules allowed, which had not been very much due to my advancing career in Shreveport. When we went fishing, there was always more talking than catching fish. As that morning progressed, things were quiet down the river bank. There was a lot on my mind, and I'd been dreaming of starting a home building company for quite some time.

I'd been kicking around names, but had yet to settle with one. Starting a company had been a desire that originated after multiple failed attempts to find an employer with a thriving work environment. All too often, I found myself facing crazy politics and company values that weren't in line with my own. So branding the company with a name had to mean something to me, and had to be in line with how I wanted my company to capture my values.

Something caught my eye as we made our way further down the river bank. It was a blue heron. Like an old friend I'd known since childhood, the blue heron always looked the same as he gracefully moved through the water. As we passed, his patience was notable while he stalked his prey. Then, all at once, he struck and caught a small fish! He was successful, because God equipped him with the tools that he needed. His patience, his keen eye, and his stealth allowed him to catch the fish. We trolled on, catching a few fish of our own, and I enjoyed the rest of the day with my Dad. Later that night, I began to think about the blue heron. His qualities were one in the same with how I wanted my company to be - patient, precise, accurate, successful, and one day great, just like the Great Blue Heron.

With a lot of thought and prayer, Blue Heron Homes was born. This is my vow to our clients, future employees, and subcontractors. Blue Heron Homes will do its best to serve our clients in the most professional manner possible, and offer the highest quality product available with in your price range, while communicating openly and honestly along the way.

To our future employees, we vow to offer a place of employment that allows you to thrive as a professional, and work in an environment that is healthy and enjoyable. To our subcontractors, we will always treat you fairly and support you as you support us. Together we will be successful in this business. We understand any home builder is only as good as their subcontractors. We recognize this and will never take it for granted.

Blue Heron Homes was founded in 2010 and currently has offices in Monroe & Shreveport. From each of our offices we have a build range, up to a one hour driving distance. Our custom home program is designed to make the entire process easy and fun. We include services such as plan design, lot development and clearing, interior and selection design, financial management, and consulting for bank financing. Each of our projects is assigned to one of our first class Project Managers which visit our jobs daily to ensure excellence.

If you list and sell your home through Blue Heron Real Estate, LLC and then build with Blue Heron Homes, you will earn a 1% listing fee rebate off of the new home project.

Our People are what makes Blue Heron Homes such a great organization. We could not be successful without each and every one of them. We are happy to call Monroe, Louisiana, home for our corporate offices and look forward to future development in the community.
