LEGACY HOMES - CUSTOM HOME BUILDER - SASKATOON - 306-955-5000
Legacy Homes is unique in the home building industry of Saskatchewan and beyond. The uniqueness of our team lies in the familial relationship of Legacy. It consists of sons, Ford and Clark Robertson, and daughter, Lee Selzler. This dynamic partnership means that our work is never complete, and our service never stops, because our care and concern for your satisfaction is literally taken home with us.
Grant Robertson started Legacy Homes back in 1991. A graduate in 1974 from the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Commerce, with majors in both Finance and Marketing, led Grant to secure employment with Cairns Homes, the largest home builder and land developer at that time.
By 1976, Grant took over Cairns housing operations in the Saskatoon area. Grant’s vision, his work ethic and his tireless advocacy for the regulation of the home building industry led to him to participate in the creation of the New Home Warranty Program for the province of Saskatchewan. His membership includes serving as director on the Board of the New Home Warranty Program. Additionally, Grant served as President of the Saskatoon Home Builders Association, and as provincial Chairman of the Saskatchewan Home Builders Association. He also served on the Board of the Canadian Home Builders Association. Most notably, Grant worked with the Canadian National Research Council in pioneering new energy efficient concepts for the housing industry.
His extensive background in business and the vast knowledge he gained from field, community and committee work enabled Grant to develop an enviable reputation within the new home industry. Thus paving the way for the creation of Legacy Homes.
The President of Legacy Homes is Ford Robertson. Ford began to amass his vast knowledge of residential construction as a young boy cleaning job sites. This foundational experience of the process triggered, in Ford, a passion to pursue more in-depth knowledge of all the trades work necessary for home construction. Not content with simply assisting, Ford embarked on a deeper involvement and by the time he obtained his driver's license, Ford added deliveries, service and office managerial duties to his resume; assisting with the ledgers and expense reports at a relatively young age.
Throughout University, Ford continued his association with Legacy helping with project management and assisting in sales. Desiring to further his formal education, Ford obtained a degree in Business from the University of Saskatchewan, College of Commerce; however, a thirst for more life experience, beyond Legacy Homes, led Ford to seek more experience in the various fields of sales, marketing, and other construction project work. These outside experiences helped Ford perfect his business and managerial skills, especially in the areas of budgeting, finance, administration and estimation.
Ford returned to work full time with Legacy Homes after his journeys and experiences beyond the company. By the time Ford was 24, he amassed his own clientele and began selling and running the Legacy home building projects. Not content with managing and selling, Ford immersed himself further into the industry and obtained his Master Builder designation; a coveted achievement that distinguishes Ford as a highly dedicated professional and expert leader in the home building industry.
Presently, Ford oversees all aspects of Legacy Homes' building operations, including, but not limited to sales, project management and customer relations.
Clark grew up helping his father, Grant, on the project construction sites by cleaning, organizing and performing other general maintenance duties. When only very young, Clark developed a love for home building, and his extensive resume in the industry began to be established.
Clark’s experience in the construction industry is vast. His 26 years of accumulated experience include time spent as a driver deliverer and a shop hand working on the production line making moldings at Hy-Grade Millworks. Additionally, Clark worked at Braid Flooring in the shipping department, as well as CWD Windows and Doors in shipping and receiving. Times spent in these industries gave Clark a keen understanding for quality control and scheduling; yet, Clark’s broad range of life experience goes beyond the construction industry, having obtained a degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Lethbridge.
Upon graduation from the University of Lethbridge, Clark resumed his work with construction and design and sought experience in as many different industries as he could. Clark worked with Brick City Mason and became adept at stone masonry. He spent considerable time with Kelly a journeyman framing specialist. This experience gifted Clark with an in-depth understanding of the procedures and the individual skills necessary for framing, stone masonry and custom foundation projects. These invaluable skills have paid considerable dividends when Clark re-joined Legacy Homes.
Clark Robertson is the Project Manager, and the after-sales customer service and satisfaction guarantor. Clark is responsible for the entire on-site managerial aspects of Legacy Homes. He has almost two decades of project management experience and is a tireless worker with a passionate commitment to satisfying all Legacy’s customers’ needs. When you invest in Legacy, we will invest in you and Clark Robertson will be with you and will do what it takes to guarantee your comfort, your satisfaction and your feelings of security for as long as you own your home.
Lee’s experience in the home building industry was born early in her life when she accompanied her father, Grant, to the office and then to the construction sites. Lee was entranced with the framing aspect of the home build and loved walking through the “bones of the homes.” By the time Lee entered her teenage years, she began cleaning the newly constructed houses for Grant, and eventually began showing the new Legacy show homes.
The pursuit of higher education was a non-negotiable in the Robertson household. After high school, Lee enrolled at the University of Saskatchewan, but later took a break from her studies to pursue full time work in the transportation industry for Kindersley Transport. Shortly afterwards, Lee obtained a position in customer service at Yankee Group of Companies. Within a short amount of time, Lee moved into the intricate field of planning and scheduling of trucking routes.
When the Yankee Group of Companies was sold, Lee pondered the prospect of returning to Legacy Homes as their corporate office manager and bookkeeper. In May 2014, Lee began her time with Legacy in a more official capacity and the face of Legacy’s future was complete. While raising a family, Lee completed her university degree and officially assumed the bookkeeping duties along with a greatly expanded role in sales, site supervision, trades scheduling, and assisting her brothers, Ford and Clark, in sales meetings. Additionally, Lee remains connected to her first love of home building as you will often find her onsite cleaning.
Ford and Clark Robertson, and Lee Selzer are passionate about your well-being and fulfillment, from the time you walk through our doors to the time when you walk through the doorway to your new home. We will exceed your expectations, because our commitment to the ideals of quality, excellence, service and satisfaction are the foundational cornerstones of Legacy Homes.
