The JordanBuilt Story

Founder Mike Jordan launched JordanBuilt Homes more than twenty years ago—a family business with a simple mission: to build high-quality homes for families just like his. Buyers loved having customized options to fit their lifestyles and needs, and JordanBuilt grew. We grew because we listened to our buyers, staying current with technology, amenities and updated floorplans as well as building on ample lots in great locations.


To date, we’ve built more than 1,800 homes and employ twenty people in two divisions. But the important things have stayed the same. Mike Jordan cares for his homeowners and employees like family. And the original mission? Unchanged. High quality homes for families who really live in them and plan to stay for a while. So if you’re asking “Why Jordan Built?”, you might ask instead “How” are we built? JordanBuilt Homes are….



Thoughtfully Built

Brian Herring, chief operating officer, and his team are thoughtful. They think about where to build, what to build and why they’re building it. Whether it’s a more functional kitchen or an outdoor living space made for entertaining, they’re thinking about how homeowners live today.

Quality Built

Buddy Tripp is our VP of construction. He and his team of project managers work hand-in-hand with every single homeowner, asking and answering questions and double-checking quality—from the foundation and framing to the finer details like crown molding, faucets and finishes.

Efficiently Built

Blake Whitaker, director of purchasing, and his team are watchdogs. Why? By scrutinizing costs, we pass the savings down to you. The goal is always a high quality home at the best value. The smarter and more efficient we are with costs, the more you can have—whether in space, interior details or outdoor amenities.
