Lionheart Building Group, LLC is a residential and commercial contractor. Founder, Richard Haake’s vision for building and renovating homes and commercial buildings began in the early 70’s when he and a fellow college classmate began renovating homes and commercial buildings in the Dilworth, Myers Park and Foxcroft areas of Charlotte. After graduation from Queens College, Richard began renovating and selling historic homes in the Dilworth and Myers Park neighborhoods. On a special project approved by the Mecklenburg County Historic Commission, Richard consulted with Bob Vila of “This Old House” when he renovated the historic Davidson Family Home, “Oaklawn” in the late 1980’s.

After a stint working for several large regional home builders and land developers in Charlotte, Richard opened his own company and began personally building dozens of custom homes in Charlotte neighborhoods, including Glen Eagles, Myers Park, Piper Glen, Foxcroft, Montebello, Park Crossing and Cameron Woods to name a few. Along the way, Richard also built some commercial buildings in Downtown Charlotte (see our photo gallery).

Always focused on offering clients the highest level of service, sustaining personal and long-term relationships and by keeping up with the latest in industry technology, Lionheart Building Group’s objective is to stay true to our Mission, Vision and Value statements.
