Who We Are

Home South Communities is Louisiana proud, owned and operated by Mark and Leanne Willie. Both Mark and Leanne come from several generations of builders and developers.

Mark, the son of Murlin Willie, has been in construction and development for over 25 years. He spent many of those years living in Atlanta, becoming a very successful production builder and developer.  After returning to Baton Rouge, Mark picked up where he left off with his sister at Willie and Willie Contractors.

Leanne, daughter of Glenn Sheets, graduated from LSU in business marketing. In the years following college, she spent time in both the real estate market and the mortgage industry in Birmingham, Alabama. Once returning home, she began working with her father and his construction company, Masters Homes. With her father seeking retirement, Leanne stepped in to facilitate his role and responsibilities.

Now, as husband-and-wife, Mark and Leanne have combined their heritage and experience to create Home South Communities, LLC, “The Next Generation of Home Builders".

Our Philosophy

A lot of work goes into building a house and we want you to know that our focus is quality over quantity, while still offering affordability in the areas you want to live. We believe in using local, and mostly family run,  businesses to build your home. We pride ourselves in providing a comprehensive warranty program, with additional courtesy maintanence for certain items in your first year. We think it is important to know who is building your home, so the builder will personally walk your home with you prior to closing. You definitely don't get that kind of service with the big guys.
