Jacobsen Homes Testimonials

Why Choose Jacobsen Homes?

 "When we decided to build a new home, we did our research and confidently chose to purchase from Jacobsen because of the superior quality that goes into each and every home. At the time we did not know how wonderful working with Jacobsen and LeeCorp would be. The way they care about their customers is evident from the moment you walk through their door. They believe in not only building great homes but also great relationships. The kindness they show continues even after you sign the contract. Chris Lee from LeeCorp has been an absolute delight to work with. He is knowledgeable and professional and always went above and beyond to accommodate us. Chris gained our trust and never once let us down. Our home looks incredible thanks to the Jacobsen employees and the many contractors LeeCorp employs to maintain that superior standard. We would like to thank every single person who worked on our homes with such care, from the factory in Tampa, to the Jacobsen team who went out of their way to make us happy as we toured our home while it was being built. The finishing touches being completed here in Estero were so outstanding that we have written several individual thank you cards commending their skilled workmanship. Our experience with Jacobsen Homes and LeeCorp has been a blessing. Building a home could have been a stressful experience, but instead it was a joy. Thank you for our beautiful home and thank you even more for treating it as if it were your very own."

 “Pat and I want to thank all the people from Jacobsen and LeeCorp that we have worked with thru this process. But, especially we want to thank you, Carol. You have been the “point man” for all of the steps and stages. You have responded quickly and competently to every question and inquiry that we have made. We think back to when you were taking pictures on a daily basis and emailing them to our (northern) home and are only the more appreciative of your many efforts on our behalf. Thanks! We have told a goodly number of friends and neighbors about the work that you have done and our personal satisfaction with LeeCorp and Jacobsen, and we will continue to do so!” ~Patricia & Joe Lewandowski, North Port, FL


"...We bought your Jacobsen home and had it erected on pilings...by LeeCorp. What I would like you to know is that our home went through the eye of Hurricane Charlie with winds up to 155 miles per hour and the only damage we had was a couple of ripped screens. I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for building the strongest home in my neighborhood which includes many large dupleses that were completely destroyed by Charlie. You and LeeCorp should be proud of yourselves for building a super structure that I call my home." ~Ron Welcom & Rob Anderson, Islander's Landing, Bokeelia, FL


"This is a special, special thank you for helping to make it possible for us to have our "Dream Home."  It is so beautiful and the only home like it here at Lake Highlander."

"God bless you for all your patience, understanding, and "long suffering", in helping me obtain my Dream-Home.  I'm finally getting "settle-in"....and I love it more each day!"

"I have been a champion of manufactured and modular home living for many years.  I think the concept, the product and the cost, truly produces great alternatives for first time home buyers as well as retired and downsizing home buyers.  I have been impressed with the increases in quality construction and the innovative ideas to maximize comfort while always keeping a good eye on expense."    

James E. "Jim" King, Jr., President, The Florida Senate

"Based on my experience buying a modular home this year, I am pleased to recommend Matt Bennett, owner of Bennett Better Built Homes, and Jacobsen Homes.  I have been able to obtain a well-built home with a plan that fits my lot perfectly, has the features I was looking for, and stayed within a price range I could afford.  During the entire selection, permitting, and construction process, I have received excellent service from Matt Bennett, from his team of subcontractors, and from Jacobsen Homes.  Working with each of them has been a positive experience.  The final result is even better that I had originally hoped for, and everyone who sees my new house has been impressed by its attractiveness and quality. "

"Working with Mark Malanowicz and Citrus/Meadowood Homes of Florida was enjoyable and pressure free.  We first met him and were introduced to Jacobsen Homes nearly ten years ago.  Mark is a great educator as well as a salesman.  We made yearly visits to the Safety Harbor factory model center and to Mark's business location to explore the latest models as we knew eventually we would need to replace our forty-five year old home.  We visited other manufacturers as well, but Jacobsen Homes and their representatives are the best.  In our research, we even sought out installers of manufactured homes to get their opinion about quality of construction since most set up the homes of more than one manufacturer.  Jacobsen Homes was consistently given high marks.

Thank you sincerely to all who had a part in building our home.  We are proud to show it to anyone planning to build a manufactured home in our community, Americana Cove."

"Peter and I want to Thank You for helping us design our new Jacobsen Home.  Only with your help did it turn out the way we had hoped.  You were such a big help coordinating things with the people at Good Samaritan.

The time and effort you put in with us was a "big deal" and very much appreciated.  Thank you."

Peter and Donna Birchall

"Just wanted to thank you for sharing your time with us.  We really appreciate your comments and advice, answering our questions and concerns.

Barb did a great job as tour guide.  It was very impressive to see the production line and the quality of the products involved.  We loved all the model homes"

I am writing to let you know how very much we appreciate the time you spent with us going over our wishes in a custom-designed mobile home.  We took up a large part of your day, and your suggestions and assistance were as helpful as they were welcome.  You are friendly and very knowledgeable.

The process of choosing just the right home o meet my father's needs is a big responsibility, and you helped to make it a little less stressful for us.  Everyone we deal with at Jacobsen is wonderful.

I have, and will continue to highly recommend Citrus Homes/Jacobsen Homes. We are so pleased with our new home and my husband continues to tell me that every night! No matter how many questions I had for Greg (US41 Bradenton location) and I did, for about 5 years before our over-taxed, high HOA and maintenance drainer finally sold and we were able to move forward with our purchase, he was ALWAYS patient and knowledgeable. I always looked forward to going in and speaking with him. He truly is one of the best. That said, so is Cara in warranty and Dave who has come out to our new home to fix a few minor things. Everyone has always been professional and courteous. Honestly, I feel extremely lucky to have walked into that location.

Sally Lowe

We couldn't be happier with Mark and all the folks at Citrus Homes!  We are thrilled with our new home and have had nothing but great prompt customer service from the Jacobsen factory as well as from Citrus and Bahr Construction, who build the carport, shed and screened the porch.  We highly recommend Citrus Homes for a great building experience!

Kevin Rump  recommends Jacobsen Homes Plant City - The Factory Home Store

As a recent Jacobsen homes buyer. I can not tell you how satisfied I am not only with Jacobsen the home builder but with Mark Malanowicz from the Plant City sales office. I had the pleasure of having him help me from start to the finish on my project. At 55 years old I retired and decided to move from Orlando to Sarasota and was lucky enough to find a lot in a community that not only my parents live in but my grandmother did as well.

Now I will not say that the entire process didn't come with some bumps in the road, but to be honest much of that is just from the lack of EVER going through the process of building a Mobile home vrs a brick and mortar home as I have done in the past. But Mark and his entire team was always there when I called with questions or concerns. Another key note I would like to mention is that the team that Jacobsen put together to complete my outdoor package went above and beyond as well to complete my entire project.

I am currently working with Marks other office at Citrus Homes in Brandenton, FL to install a unit for my brother who has just started the process. If I wasn't happy or for sure that the outcome wasn't far greater than the small issues that comes up I would have NEVER allowed him to move forward with this company. My brother actually read the reviews on his own and brought those concerns up to me so this is why I felt I must take the time to give you the opinion of someone else. I hope this helps anyone with questions or concerns you might have. Jacobsen is one of the few Manufactures that will allow you to make almost ANY changes to a model you like to fit your personal needs. That is huge for a buyer!! or at least it was for this buyer.....

Sometimes in the facts speak the most loudly. Here are the facts about my experience with Jacobsen and specifically Randy, Rick, Tom, and Brenda. My wife and and I were helped to design our home during the sales process by Randy resulting in our dream home. Rick and Tom navigated us through the engineering and buying process resulting in a expedited time frame and fair loan. Tom also helped us quickly secure our dream property too! Brenda managed the delivery and build of our new home ahead of schedule....during the Covid Crisis! Ahead of schedule!!!! It was worth repeating! My family now enjoys our American Dream. A beautiful custom Jacobsen home.... on 10 acres ........wait for it...on Field of Dreams Lane! I still reach out to Randy and Brenda from time to time for assistance and they continue to support me as if I were family. Thank you Jacobsen Team!

We could not afford their homes this time around, but my experience with Jacobsen has been top notch. Tom and Leslie were very forthcoming with the information I needed, honest, and friendly. Plus, I am professionally very familiar with one of the contractors that they hire to work on their homes, so I know their homes are put together by quality people! With a good budget, I highly recommend starting out with Jacobsen before you consider other builders. They will see me again when my income reliably increases!

Go see Donnie. We looked at several manufacturers over the past five years and think Jacobsen is the best quality and value. We even looked at multiple Jacobsen dealers. Donnie was the most responsive dealer we found. He definitely went above and beyond. I highly recommend working with him.

We are extremely happy with that decision! Donnie delivered ahead of schedule our Jacobsen Home. His subcontractor for the “exterior” package did a phenomenal job and again ahead of schedule! My neighbors in this tight golf community commented about how top notch the workmanship is on this construction site. We are extremely pleased and thankful for Donnie and his crew making our Florida dream home come true.
A shout out to Danny for his workmanship!

Thank you!
