“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.”Leonard T. Elzie
”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.Norman & Mary Jane Gordon
“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.”Mark and Donna Peacock
“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.

“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.”Jill Torres
“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 did our research and selected Donnie at Suncrest homes as our Jacobsen Homes retailer. It was the right decision! Donnie delivered on time and the Board of Directors in our Golf community was extremely impressed by the quality of the installation. The board told me how Donnie and the subcontractor he hired exceeded their expectations on the time schedule they have in place for new home construction. Donnie created a “punch” list of minor details that needed to be corrected by Jacobsen and they responded quickly to rectify them. We are very happy with our new home and have received many complements on it”Mike Johnston
”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!Bob Wiegenstein
“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.....”Kevin Rump

”Thank you so much for your assistance and speedy response with my request.
By the way, I really love my Jac Home. It’s very well built and the attention to detail is amazing.Edward Rios
“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!”Mikael Guerra

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!”Mike and Paula Johnston
”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.Andrew Witherell
“Sometimes 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!”Leslie Nelson
“This was an excellent building company to work with!! Our process was difficult from the beginning as we had tried another company initially after we purchased our piece of property. It turned out after several months that they (other guys) promised a lot but could actually do none of the above. With Jacobsen, that was NOT the case. We were greeted immediately by the president of the Plant City division, Mark, and told him exactly what we needed (having been through this once already we had very specific requests right away) and he took us back to the office to discuss right then what he could do for us. He was able to find an appropriate floor plan and get us set up that afternoon to speak with a home designer to get our process started as quickly as possible. From that first day and impression, my wife and I felt like we had finally found the perfect builders for the house we wanted. Over the next several months, during our unfortunately lengthy process of achieving financing (which was no fault of Jacobsen - bank woes only), they again were always at the ready to provide any information needed to the bank or insurance agents. I don't think we needed to wait more than 72 hours for any paperwork turn around time on any requests we sent. Long story short, our original financing option fell through and again they were there to pick up the pieces offering a company that they have worked with many times to get the financing completed in a timely manner so we could finally get into construction. Once construction started, we had the house put into production in early Jan this year and moved into it in mid May. For all intensive purposes, the actual construction time was phenomenal!! While yes, there were delays and snafus - but most of them were outside of their (Jacobsen) control. The timeline fell as thus - Early Jan 2018 house put onto lines, late Jan house off lines and ready to be placed at site, mid Jan property prepped and stem wall placed, by mid feb house was set on stem wall and was ready for finishing work, by the first week in April all the finish work was completed on the house. All we were waiting on then was the final inspection to pass. Now let me also mention that during this entire course we were expecting a baby so we really wanted to have everything completed with financing and construction before baby was born. Mark knew all of this and as often as he could he pushed his guys and subs to get things done for us quicker than expected. This was over and above our expectations and we cannot say enough good things about Mark and his crew. The final OK for occupancy certificate, due to some unforseen requests from the inspector, took an extra month after all finishing to complete. Now that we have been in the house, we appreciate all the lengths they went to during the pre- and post-construction phase to get our family into a well built and beautiful home!! Thanks to Mark and his entire team!!”Elizabeth Drissel
“I have seen and visited several mobile home dealers in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. Jacobson Mobile Homes in Florida is, by far, the best built manufactured home. I am quite impressed by the quality of the cabinets and modern bathroom style. Customer service is exceptional and representatives go beyond the call of duty for customer satisfaction”Rosario Carter
”I was very impressed with the staff and homes we toured on a recent visit. I would definitely recommend Jacobsen Homes Plant City to my family & friends looking for quality craftsmanship and experienced staff who go above & beyond to accommodate personal preferences. Well done, Mark!Christine Francis
