Richard Bergman has been building for over 20 years. He was a design instructor at the University of Buffalo for 7 years and also built custom cabinets for the top furniture design stores. Along the way he began buying Buffalo city “fixer upper” homes and started a renovations business.
By the early 1980’s Richard Bergman moved to Malibu, California and became a real estate broker with land deals in both California and Hong Kong. That experience led to an entrance into the custom home building market of Southern California.
Returning to Buffalo for a Bennett High School class reunion in the late 1980’s, Richard had the good fortune to meet his wife Dorothy. They moved back to Buffalo after getting married and after several years Heartland Homes was born out of the idea to build high-quality, custom homes for people seeking to make their "Dream Houses" a reality.
In 1999, Richard Bergman was elected President of the Niagara Frontier Builder’s Association. Today, Heartland Homes is building some of WNY’s Finest Custom Homes. With an attention to his customers, their needs and the fine details that are so important- Heartland Homes and Richard Bergman’s good design will build your great home…on time and within your budget.
