Robert Gallagher in 1967, on-site at the Ishnala subdivision in Palos Heights
Gallagher and Henry remains one of Chicagoland’s most respected names in residential construction, a reputation spanning six decades and over 16,000 new homes. Since 1954, our singular purpose has remained simple and direct: We build the best homes in the best communities.
Gallagher and Henry builds distinctive single-family homes, rejecting the cookie-cutter appearance that too often defines new home communities. With award-winning home designs, we honor proven construction methods and design philosophies. We follow the industry’s evolution, dedicating ourselves to creating homes that accommodate today’s lifestyles as well as foresee tomorrow’s trends.
We’re about stability and integrity, as much in our sincere dealings with our homeowners as in our brick-and-concrete construction. Our buyers know that Gallagher and Henry values transparency. Making confidence, comfort, and costs central to the discussion, we display our respect for the tremendous investment and faith that each one of our homeowners puts in our name.
Family owned and operated, we recognize that each family has its own vision, its own life. From adding bathrooms to extending kitchens, we work with homeowners to build a home that befits their wishes.
We favor a family-centric approach, knowing that our homeowners want safe communities with quality schools, modern amenities, and a home that embraces modern life.
Building the best homes in the best communities is not merely our mantra, it’s our mission. With vision and purpose, honesty and integrity, we relish the opportunity to help you find your slice of the American Dream and thank you for considering Gallagher and Henry as your homebuilder.
