About Heuer Homes

Our History

Owners & brothers, Eric & Ian Heuer never envisioned working together when they were growing up, but an offer for both of them to work for a large builder early on in their career was an opportunity that excited them both. Working for this builder fostered a mutual love and passion for helping people realize their dream of building a home. Both brothers started out in sales but also had the opportunity to learn more about estimating and design. From there, Ian took an opportunity in South Florida to work on a large residential & commercial development where he would learn other aspects of home building & real estate development. Shortly after the crash of the real estate market in 2008, Eric & Ian decided to take the opportunity to partner up in business. Early on in their new venture, they focused on remodels and selling residential real estate but it was a struggle in a difficult housing market. After a few years of growth, the opportunity came to build their first home for some clients that could not find a builder that they were comfortable with in their budget. This client had some connections & relationships with some subcontractors & suppliers in the building industry and wanted to find a builder that would allow them to take advantage of the savings they could obtain. Through this experience, Eric & Ian began to realize this unique way they could partner with clients. Building a house at cost, plus a flat builder management fee would allow clients to have some say in the choosing of certain suppliers and subcontractors as well as put Heuer Homes on the same team with their clients. This transparent open bid system was also a better fit for the Heuer brothers as they weren’t comfortable with the many hidden costs & kickbacks that some builders have & receive. Heuer Homes is excited for the future as more opportunities come to guide people through the process of building their dream home.

Meet Our Team


Eric Heuer

Born and raised in northeast Indiana, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management from Anderson University where I met my wife, Jennifer. My desire to incorporate my business education with my people skills led me to a career in home construction and real estate. Being in this industry for 17 years, I place so much importance in putting our clients’ needs first while emphasizing transparency and authenticity throughout the process. My job is to understand what is important to them, making sure they’re confident with the entire process and confident that their desires are my first concern. Due to my background as a Realtor, I’m able to provide a combination of expertise in new construction as well as consultation in design and selections that will help from a resale and investment standpoint. Aside from the business, I love spending time with my wife and wrestling around the house with our four sons. I attend Arcadia Christian Church and feed my love of competition playing golf and basketball.


Ian Heuer

Born and raised in northeast Indiana, I received my education from Columbia City High School, Colorado Christian University, and Indiana/Purdue Fort Wayne. My desire to help others in a service profession is fulfilled by my career in new home construction, and it is always a privilege to help my clients build their dream home. After 16 years of experience in the industry, I make it my priority to understand market changes and fluctuations in the construction trends to ensure my clients are well-informed and able to make the best decisions based on their unique needs. Outside of work, my wife Leah and I are busy with the activities of our four children and involvement at our church. When time allows, I enjoy golfing and traveling.

Born and raised in northeast Indiana, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education from Huntington University. After marrying my wife, Katie, I moved to the Indianapolis area in 2011. Since 2011, I have worked in the construction industry in multiple capacities ranging from equipment rental & concrete preparation/restoration to project management as a general contractor. My wife and I met Eric & Ian Heuer when we sold our first home and had an incredible experience. From that experience, a partnership through Heuer Homes manifested itself. Through Heuer Homes, I am able to cultivate long lasting relationships with clients while partnering with them throughout the entire building process. I am passionate about seeing someone’s dream home become a reality and it is my priority to make sure that is achieved by delivering the best possible craftsmanship. Aside from work, Katie and I have the pleasure of raising three children. I also enjoy making improvements to my own home, playing golf and hunting.
