How Mercedes Homes Began
Mercedes Homes was established in 1983 by Howard Buescher, a 23-year veteran of the homebuilding business and his daughter Susan
Girard. He named the new company after his wife, Mercedes, and the homebuilder quickly earned a reputation for outstanding
design. Howard's other children quickly followed him into the business and today, five of them lead our innovative company.
Mercedes Homes continues to expand rapidly in Florida , Texas and North and South Carolina and has now built homes for over
Strong and Growing
From just 35 homes in 1983, Mercedes Homes takes pride in designing and building thousands of homes each year.
Builder Magazine ranks Mercedes Homes as the 20th largest builder in the nation. Yet despite its strength and size, our
company maintains a family feel and stresses community involvement. 97% of our homebuyers state they would recommend Mercedes Homes
to a friend or family member.
Ongoing Research and Innovation
At Mercedes Homes, distinctive design has been coupled with a need to innovate. Technology and
innovation have been integral to our processes long before the hurricanes of recent years. For over a decade, we have been hard
at work, proactively researching new technologies to make your new home stronger, safer and more energy efficient. In
cooperation with our technology partners, Mercedes Homes has developed features and options designed to increase
structural strength and reduce the chance for water intrusion in storm conditions. The benefits of these innovative features
have been televised nationally on the Bob Vila Show, ABC Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the Discovery Channel, CNN and multiple
news outlets. All of our Florida locations offer some of these storm resistant features. As the specialized trade partners
and suppliers are acquired, more Mercedes Homes locations will offer the full complement of hurricane resistant features.
Building Homes, Neighborhoods & Lifestyles...in Florida, Texas and the Carolinas
Skill, experience, passion and commitment are all part of the craftsmanship that goes into each Mercedes home. Our family of
dedicated employee-owners and trade partners works diligently to build homes that will be enjoyed for years to come. At
Mercedes Homes, "we pledge to build distinctive homes of outstanding and enduring value while providing an enjoyable
experience for our customers."
It's no wonder that we stand behind every home we build with a one-year and two-year limited warranty -- as well as a
ten-year structural warranty. Mercedes Homes continues to be an industry leader not because of the number of homes we build,
but because of how we build them.
