Meet Bob Rau and Rich Bower
Bob and Rich are professional, personable businessmen, and pride themselves on the relationships they forge with their clients. Partnering with the area’s finest architects, engineers and high-end craftsmen, both work hard to create a home to meet each individual buyer’s special requirements and dreams. Bob works closely with an architect to ensure each Heritage Manor Homes design complements the size and topography of the individual lot and its relationship to the surrounding neighborhood. Rich personally supervises the construction of every home.
A member of a multi-generation family of home builders, Bob Rau has over 40 years experience in the building business. Having built many custom homes, Bob has seen it all, and exudes the solid, steady and reliable professionalism necessary to smoothly bring dreams to life.
