Why Choose Jacobsen Homes

A Family Tradition In Quality Since 1959


Bill Jacobsen founded Jacobsen Homes in 1959.  He recognized a need for quality affordable homes.

Today, under the direction of Bob Jacobsen (owner and CEO since 1981),  Jacobsen Homes is the oldest and largest builder of manufactured homes in Florida.  It is also the only sole owned manufactured home builder in Florida.  The third generation, Colby and Beecher Jacobsen, worked in the factory each summer during school break.  Now after both graduating from Florida State University, they have joined the company permanently.

Jacobsen Homes found its niche years ago.  Even though the homes are built in a factory, they have never built a traditional production line home.  From the beginning Jacobsen Homes has been recognized as the leader in custom built manufactured homes.  They like to think of the homes being as flexible as the customer's ideas. 

Jacobsen Homes lead the manufactured housing industry with automated floor plan design with the use of AutoCAD in 1987.  Every home is computer designed by the in-house engineering staff.

Jacobsen Homes is a people driven company, with the belief that a company is only as good as the people who work for it.  You will find a great deal of loyalty at Jacobsen Homes, and in return all the employees are treated with respect from ownership.  Thirty-percent of the staff, including officers, sales, production, engineering, and office staff have been with the company for more that 10 years, several as long as thirty years.  Jacobsen Homes considers itself as a family and their dealers and customers a part of the extended family.
