Tennessee expansion

Gehan Homes, the ninth-largest private homebuilder in the US, has revealed plans to commence homebuilding operations in Nashville, Tennessee


Nashville ranks as one of the nation’s top-performing large metros for job and population growth.

The new division will focus on homebuilding production across the Middle Tennessee region. With an existing footprint in Texas, Arizona and Colorado, the expansion marks the fourth state and seventh submarket in which the builder operates.

The new division will be overseen by Brandon Rickman. “I am energized and excited to be a part of this expansion. Gehan Homes’ outstanding reputation for quality craftsmanship, thoughtfully designed homes and award-winning customer service will make a significant contribution to the Nashville market,” he said. “We are building a strong land position and will be leveraging Gehan’s efficiencies and resources to strategically grow our newest division in the Music City.”

“Nashville is one of the top housing markets in the country with strong fundamentals for sustainable growth,” said John Winniford, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gehan Homes. “We have been evaluating the market for the last couple of years; the move is consistent with our plan to expand into markets that fit the profile of our existing footprint. We welcome Brandon to our team and look forward to supporting him and his efforts as we grow the division.”
