For nearly three decades, Gooden Homes has been designing and building award- winning homes in the Panhandle of Florida, and the coastal areas of Alabama.
Darrell Gooden started the company in 1980, building multi-family town homes. The company evolved into what it is today--averaging 300 single family home sales per year- with dedication and attention to detail and listening to what the customers want incorporated into their family homes.
We Deliver on Quality and Value by:
- Researching land opportunities in the most desirable geographical areas
- Purchasing land at a good price that is carried over to the value of our homes
- Developing land into neighborhoods that have curb appeal and attractive streetscapes
- Designing the latest trends in architecture with good market value in mind
- Listening to our customer's needs in developing their "custom" home
- Strict construction management of homebuilding procedures and techniques, as well as quality building materials used in the construction process
The end result is that every home designed and built by Gooden Homes is one that we would be proud to have our own families live in.
Our People Are Professionals
Gooden Homes has an in-house staff of design professionals who apply leading-edge architectural styles and elements to develop homes that accommodate a variety of lifestyles. Our floor plan designs include Coastal Florida-style brick ranch designs called "The Designer Series" as well as mixed material exterior styles called "The Craftsman Series". Plans range in size from 1,600 square feet to over 4,000 square feet, and can be customized to the homebuyer.
Gooden Homes has a Customer Service department that employs state-of-the-art management software, capable of tracking each individual customer service request. The company takes great pride in ensuring that all customer service requests are handled with care and expedited in a timely manner. Since our initial membership into the Bonded Builder's Warranty Program, Gooden Homes has been awarded the Claims Free Award every year since 1996.
Gooden Homes' New Home Specialists are trained and licensed real estate professionals who are also local experts on the communities in which they work. They have extensive knowledge on the most current trends in the market and provide customers with all the kinds of information that helps new homebuyers become better acquainted with their new community and region.
Our Vision is to Lead the Pack
It is Gooden Homes' vision to take the lead in a specialized niche of semi-custom service to the local communities. Rather than follow in the footsteps of larger companies that "Bigger is Better", we will stay focused on what we do best: develop great locations, design leading-edge architecture, and provide great customer service.
