Dale Bercher, President of Bercher Homes and Accent Realty Group, has a 30-year career in the new home building industry. His passion is for serving customers, associates, trade partners and the community through business.
Dale’s father and grandfather both worked in the construction and real estate industry, leading to his early attraction to the new home building industry. His foray into the construction industry began in high school while working for home builders in various capacities, cementing his passion for the industry and his decision to pursue a professional career as a home builder. Dale attended Louisiana State University where he earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management. While attending LSU, he owned and operated a successful remodeling company providing the means to attend college.
Upon graduating in 1988, Dale started working at Centex Homes, a Fortune 500 Company and one of the country’s largest home builders.

In 2001, Dale left Centex to accept the position of Chief Operating Officer at Traton Homes, where he enjoyed eight years of managing the company. In 2010, Dale amicably departed from the company to start Bercher Homes in order to better satisfy his deep passion for enhancing other people’s lives by building great homes and communities.
