Mobile's Hometown Builder since 1966

John Howard founded John Howard Companies alongside his wife, Betty, in 1966. Together, they built the company on the premise that superior customer service, product reliability, and quality construction would ensure success.


Over 56 years later, John Howard continues to operate his company with the help of his team.

John Howard has been “Mobile’s Hometown Builder” for over 50 years: “I don’t want to get bigger, I want 
to perfect what I do”.

“Thank you and your staff for making the whole process from first meeting to closing, a most enjoyable experience. We went looking for a builder and found a friend. We would not hesitate to recommend John Howard Homes to anyone looking for a quality home.”

“I am extremely happy with my house. I never would have attempted this if you had not made it seem possible, even simple and then worked with me to get here. The house is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I will recommend you and your company to anyone interested in building.”
