Doug Herman wanted to create a home building company focused on quality craftsmanship, innovative design and outstanding customer service when he founded Legend Homes in 2005. Since that time, Legend Homes has grown into one of Middle Tennessee’s premier luxury home builders.
Herman brings more than 30 years of experience in the home building industry. He got his start as a project/quality assurance manager before working as a vice president of construction for a large home building company in Atlanta and Nashville. Doug’s early education in quality assurance and attention to detail continues to inform Legend’s work and vision. Doug has the personal qualities necessary to lead a company and consistently earn both client trust and confidence. Known for his integrity and composure, Doug expects the same from each of his team members.
“The Legend difference starts with our outstanding communication system,” said Herman. “We have a highly educated and trained team who are skilled in the art of communication. Along with our team, we have systems in place to update our clients weekly – and sometimes several times per week – on the progress of their new home. We have learned that communication is key to providing a superior home building experience for our clients.”
In addition to an advanced communication system, Legend provides quality craftsmanship and innovative designs. The company prides itself on the research it conducts to build the most livable plans possible. Legend Homes has proven this by the multitude of awards that have been bestowed upon them including “Best of Show” at the 2017 Parade of Homes; “Most Livable Floorplan” at the 2019 Parade of Homes; and “Best Home Builder” in the 2021 Franklin Sizzle Awards… to name a few!
Legend is known for signature items in many of their new home plans including oversized laundry rooms, splashy wet bars and to-die-for outdoor entertainment areas.
“We love to listen to our clients and help them create the home of their dreams,” said Herman. “We have a design team with degrees in engineering, interior design and marketing that pull from their wealth of talent and knowledge to bring our clients’ visions to reality. Time and time again, we hear how happy our homeowners are with the design process we have provided.
“In addition, every one of our project management team members holds at least a bachelor’s degree. Their education and experience bring a level of professionalism that is not all that common in the home building industry. I am as proud of our team as I am of the homes that we build.”
Legend currently builds luxury homes from approximately $1Million to $7Million in some of Williamson County’s most desirable communities including The Grove, Hardeman Springs, Stephens Valley, Valley View, Westhaven and Witherspoon. Plus, they will begin construction soon in Brentwood’s newest luxury community, Rosebrooke.
