From the rolling plains of Dallas, a Texas builder is excited to make its mark beneath the towering peaks of Northern Colorado.“Texas does not have these beautiful mountains,” said Kevin Egan, president of American Legend Homes. “The views we have in Colorado are spectacular.”
Dallas-based, family-owned American Legend Homes has been building homes since 2003. The company expanded to Northern Colorado in 2018. “Most Texas builders expand into Houston and Austin and we looked at those areas but they have plenty of builders,” said Egan.“But developers in Colorado were looking for something different than the publicly- held, volume builder. We’re focused on style, design and the customer experience.”
American Legend Homes’ Colorado expansion is familiar territory for Egan; he grew up in Loveland and graduated with a construction management degree from Colorado State University. He’s happy to bring his company to his home state, and he says buyers are too.“We’ve been extremely well received by developers and homebuyers,” Egan said.“Homeowners were looking for something different and we provide that.”
Egan helped grow American Legend Homes from a small boutique company to a Texas powerhouse. The company closed on 767 homes in Dallas last year. Egan believes that’s because his company offers a unique experience for homebuyers.“We don’t build cookie cutter homes,” Egan said. “Our designs are complex and we offer a wider selection of interior finishes than your average builder.”
American Legend Homes may be a big builder, but every customer matters. The company is committed to including customers during every step of the process. They focus on providing a seamless building experience for the buyer. Construction managers communicate with buyers weekly and have multiple inspection meetings throughout the process to make sure everyone is on the same page. This results in excellent communication and a trusting partnership that leads to a satisfied customer.
Right now American Legend Homes has communities in Berthoud, Windsor and Loveland. Berthoud’s Heritage Ridge master-planned community is within walking distance of downtown. Buyers can take advantage of a community pool and several parks. Windsor’s RainDance community offers 52 acres of parks along with community farms, an extensive trail system, a pool and golf course. Homes at Loveland’s The Enclave at Mariana Butte feature lakefront lots and spectacular views of Longs Peak.
“People walk our models and they see the difference,” Egan said. “We serve the customer who wants something different, something that’s beyond what the standard builder offers.”
Buyers can expect the same quality product promised to American Legend Homes’ Texas customers but many design aspects are unique to Colorado.“The architecture team in Dallas spent a lot of time in Colorado,” said Egan. “We provide our customers with thoughtful designs and fine finishes.” Windows and high ceilings take advantage of the views, while the home’s energy efficiency is a top priority for Colorado winters.
American Legend’s Design Gallery provides a unique opportunity for buyers to personalize their new home. With the guidance and expertise of a professional designer, buyers choose everything from flooring, lighting, hardware and faucets to backsplashes, cabinetry, color schemes and more. American Legend also works with local trusted lender, Academy Mortgage, to provide financial services.
American Legend Homes comes to Colorado with the promise of something unique for the Colorado homeowner. The company is new to the market but Egan isn’t. He’s excited about creating quality homes that are built for the way people live. With innovative designs, enduring relationships and unparalleled customer service, American Legend Homes is set to be a new favorite for Colorado residents.
