How it all began
American Heritage Homes was established in 1995 after two very different yet talented friends, Bill Crum and Gary Libertini, formed a lasting partnership. After studying design in college and earning a degree in Architecture, Gary knew he wanted to become a home builder. Providing unique customized homes is his passion. He firmly believes each home should be uniquely suited to its owner’s lifestyle. Before meeting Gary, Bill earned his degree in Business Management and built his first home in the late 1980s, completing ninety-five percent of the work himself. Every day Bill puts his passion for enduring quality into every project, whether he is building a starter home or a million-dollar estate. With an eye for detail and hands-on experience, Bill grew his business as a quality custom home builder. This success is how he and Gary became acquainted and blended their talents to form American Heritage Homes Corporation.
IT’S ALL IN THE NAME
When the company was first established, Bill and Gary thought long and hard about a name. They chose American Heritage Homes because of the craftsmanship and personal dedication in early American homes. They believe that the name – American Heritage Homes – inspires everyone involved in the construction to live up to the legacy of early American builders. There is no fanfare, streamers, or confetti patronizing our values, just hard work and dedication designed to provide our customers with the best building experience.
LOCAL, HANDS-ON CRAFTSMANSHIP
While our name sounds like it belongs to a big nationwide corporation, we are a locally owned and operated company – accountable only to our customers and not some far away board of directors or investors. In fact, as a customer, you will undoubtedly interact personally with Bill and Gary. They are hands-on in the company’s daily operations, not just names on a website. These “sticks and bricks” guys approach home building focused on the house and how it’s built. Everything that goes into each home is carefully considered for its value and longevity. At American Heritage Homes, it’s more about the house and the customer’s needs than the numbers or the bottom line.
American Heritage Homes prides itself on being able to develop unique, custom solutions for all our homeowners. We are a talented team, passionate and dedicated to building the best home for you and your family. We are proud to share that throughout our years, we have received various awards and business management accolades, including numerous awards at the Central Ohio BIA Parade of Homes, Recipient of the Best Place to Work in Central Ohio, and Entrepreneur of the Year. Additionally, since 1995, American Heritage Homes has been an active member of the Central Ohio BIA. Our employees have served on various BIA committees, including Gary’s term as BIA President in 2009.
