Heritage Luxury Homes is a family business and was founded in 1990 by Leo and Milena Birov when they built their first dream home in Winnetka. They oversee the construction of each Heritage Luxury home as carefully as if each were their own. The family puts its heart and soul into each and every house it builds.
The quintessential entrepreneur, Leo Birov founded Heritage Luxury Homes in 1989 when he decided to build his own home in Winnetka. In mastering home construction, Leo was able to leverage his extensive engineering experience, including years of experience working at Motorola as a senior electronics engineer and master’s degree in engineering. When he built his first home, Leo served as his own general contractor, learning the construction business from the foundation up. When his own home was completed, Leo went on to construct each and every one of Heritage’s custom homes with the same attention to detail and quality as if it were his own. Through the years, Leo has managed and been involved hands-on in every one of Heritage’s homes, gaining invaluable experience of the construction, architectural, building and zoning and construction management facets of the business. With an unparalleled knowledge of the details of home construction and the North Shore real estate market, Leo is responsible for the unprecedented growth and success of Heritage Luxury Homes.
After more than 20 years, Heritage Luxury Homes has become the premier luxury builder on the North Shore, and is expanding its business rapidly to other areas including the City of Chicago and Milwaukee suburbs. To date, Heritage Luxury Homes has built almost 100 custom luxury homes on the North Shore of Chicago in various architectural styles and has set the bar for quality luxury construction in the area.
