About Richard Heller


When a family starts looking for a builder, they focus on the distinctive characteristics of each to make their selection. At Richard Heller Homes excellence stems from the personal attention and care that every family receives. That’s what makes Richard and his team stand out from the crowd. Richard knows that quality and creativity are an important part of building a home. This knowledge led him to win back-to-back Summit Awards for the Best One-Of-A-Kind Custom Home in the $500,000 and up category in 1998 and 1999.

Richard started his education by studying architecture at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. After completing two years of studies, he realized his passion was to build custom homes, so he transferred to Trinity University where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Building in 1970.

After several years of building, construction and management experience, he ventured out on his own in 1978. To date, he has completed well over 400 custom homes throughout San Antonio and the surrounding Hill Country and has satisfied customers and new friends resulting from the building process.  He believes in not just building a house, but building a relationship with his clients.

Richard’s expertise in design and estimating give him a unique perspective to assist his clients. He listens to each family and designs and builds a home that is unique to their needs and wishes. Each home is different and incorporates the personal touches desired by that client.

From start to finish you can count on personal attention and a “can do” attitude from his entire team. Complete design and professional decorating services are part of every home built. Since Richard believes in quality and loyalty, he has built his company with top-of-the-line craftsmen throughout the building process. “We have a family attitude among ourselves that transcends to our clients. By the time we are finished with their home, they have become a part of our extended family.” This, more than anything, is what Richard is most proud of and satisfied by. For the future the plan is simple: deliver the highest quality and the best service at a competitive price. The excellence is building.
