About Herder Building

IMG_5806 EditedJohn Herder is a fourth generation builder with over 30 years of experience crafting custom homes in Tucson’s most premier neighborhoods. Quality, character, and unique styling are the hallmarks of John’s business. As the preferred builder at The Estates at Tortolita Preserve, John can customize one of his many captivating floor plans or create a fully custom home. In particular, John’s designs feature extremely generous garage spaces for car enthusiasts or those leading active lifestyles. While any builder is welcome at The Estates, John’s reputation speaks for itself. You simply won’t find another builder who offers such excellent build quality and unique details.

John Herder has a natural passion for building having been born and raised in a family with generations of construction knowledge. This has served to set him apart from the rest of the building community. John’s father, Peter Herder, is the past president of the National Home Builders Association. The Herder family has laid some deep roots in Tucson and Southern Arizona, developing hundreds of Tucson residential communities, as well as very recognizable landmarks, including St. Phillips Plaza at River & Campbell, the Herder Building on Speedway, multi-million dollar custom homes in Skyline Country Club, Ventana Canyon, the Foothills, Butterfly Mountain Estates, and Hacienda Del Sol.

IMG_5833 EditedIn the early 90’s, John was one of the pioneers of the first Green Home 21 in Tucson – a home built well before its time, which offered all of the green features which have come to be expected today, such as recycled windshields used for tile, recycled plastic soda bottles for the carpet, and more. Today, he and his wife Paulette have spent nearly 20 years building a solid business, with old fashioned values and a stellar reputation. Having nearly 400 homes under their belts, the Herders take pride with every home they build as if it were their own. They are committed to using the best construction technologies, products, and techniques available, and their integrity and honesty are as much the core value of their lives as the underlying engineering principles and aesthetics are the core of a great home. They don’t take short cuts! The Herder’s word is of the utmost importance to them. They invite you to visit their currently under construction homes so that you can appreciate the hard work and years of dedication they and their sub-contractors provide.
