North Dakota’s Top Rated Local® Home Contractors Award Winner: Heritage Homes

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Heritage Homes is a 2019 award winner for home contractors in North Dakota!

If you’re in the market for your dream home in Fargo, there’s no better home contractor to turn to than Heritage Homes.

Heritage Homes has received dozens of reviews on four verified sites with an average rating of 4.71 stars, earning them a spectacular Rating Score™ of 95.09 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 home contractors in all of North Dakota!

“What an amazing experience! I am not one to pass out five stars easily unless I truly believe in the product, and I have no hesitation [when I] say Heritage Homes is the absolutely best company I have ever built with and even had the pleasure of doing business with here in the FM area. Not only is the process so fun and so easy on the future homeowner, but the team there is just so amazing to work with. They all treat you like you are the most important person they are working with (even if they have 50 things going on), and you will never feel like you are being told partial truths or being mislead. They are extremely upfront about everything and do a great job of making sure everything is 100-percent transparent, and at the end of the process, you will already be ready to build your next house.” – Zac V.

Not Your Average Home Contractor

In order to learn a little more about Heritage Homes and its impressive online reputation, we took a few minutes to talk with the Director of Marketing, Christine Vangsness.

The first question we had for Christine was what is it that sets Heritage Homes apart from their competition in North Dakota. Here’s her response:

“Our Journey! It is all about our process, people and trade partners. Heritage Homes doesn’t just build homes; we build communities, relationships and dreams. Being the area’s number one home builder for six consecutive years is a true testament of how we operate as a company. We continually strive to be better, work harder and have fun along the way, keeping the homeowner in our forefront.”

Christine went on to add:

“Speaking of our differentiators, I would like to highlight our new Heritage Homes Odyssey Collection and our new Heritage Homes Inspiration Centers. We have a little something for every lifestyle, with seven new amazing home plans in the Odyssey Collection! With plans starting at $279,800, which includes the home site, we are thrilled to offer our future homeowners the opportunity to have a Heritage-built home for a comfortable price. Our newly built Inspiration Centers are nestled in two neighborhoods. We have expanded our resources to better serve our customers by creating an all-in-one experience to guide them through their home building journey. They are open six days a week, so we would love for you to swing by and enjoy the experience for yourself. One Inspiration Center is located at 4779 41st St S Fargo in the beautiful Cottagewood community. Our gorgeous Quincy model home is just one of three model homes in our Village. Our second Inspiration Center is located at 5513 8th St. W, West Fargo in the newly developed Wilds 9th Addition community. Our Bayfield model home is just one of three model homes in our new Odyssey Village.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Heritage Homes and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Christine had to say:

“Our mission is to positively impact the lives of others by building a home that families will enjoy for many years. The American Dream is to own a home, and we guide our homeowners to the dream of homeownership. The beauty behind this is that we personalize our homes for our clients. We control the process, and our homeowners control the decisions.”

Building Success Through Referrals and Visibility

When we asked Christine what Heritage Homes’ secret is to such a strong online reputation, she said:

“We focus on implementing marketing and social media strategies to help ensure we are hitting the omni-channel connections of this multi-device world we live in today. We focus our attention to organic search with support from our paid search and display campaigns. It is important to make it easy for consumers to find us on any search engine, social media and our website. Content drives business, so creating valuable information and relatable content for consumers will naturally drive traffic to our site.”

Christine points to their referrals and community involvement as keys to Heritage Homes’ growth outside of their powerful online reputation:

“There is nothing more powerful than a referral. Ninety-eight percent of our homeowners refer Heritage Homes to their friends and family. We believe it helps to have a fantastic referral program that is a win-win for everyone. Also brand visibility matters! Marketing is like a well-balanced meal. You need a little of everything to build a healthy and strong marketing platform. Giving back to the community is a key component of our culture and strategy; we heavily support many organizations in our community, not only with monetary giving, but with our volunteer efforts as well. It is a great way to connect with people, network and build brand awareness in a feel-good way.”

There are so many business owners looking to build their online reputation the way Heritage Homes has. Here’s Christine’s expert advice for them:

“What is your differentiator? Figure out what makes you different, and celebrate it! Don’t discount yourself; meaning, do not rely on giving your product away… Having an online reputation is the easiest way to celebrate your differentiator to the world. It is all within reach; you just need to dive right in!”


Congratulations to the team at Heritage Homes for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Christine, for taking the time to speak with us!
