About Adams Homes

Adams Homes History

Founded in 1991 by Wayne Adams, Adams Homes started serving homebuyers in Pensacola, Florida. Throughout the 1990’s and early 2000’s, Adams Homes grew its business into markets throughout Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi. Since 2005, Adams Homes has expanded into markets in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. Our headquarters is located in Gulf Breeze, Florida.

In 1991, when Wayne Adams founded Adams Homes, he drew from more than a decade of real estate and residential construction experience to formulate the company’s core principles:

  • You’re only as good as the people with whom you surround yourself
  • Keep it simple
  • Treat people as you would want to be treated

These core principles have enabled Adams Homes to become one of the largest, privately-held homebuilders in the country and are the foundation for Adams Homes Philosophy, Culture, and Mission.

Adams Homes Philosophy

Adams Homes has abided by a philosophy towards homebuilding that is founded in its core principles. We believe that a homebuilder should offer customers a straightforward purchase process that is easy to understand and a home that fits their needs from the beginning. Based on these beliefs, Adams Homes has formulated a Purchase Process and product offering (see Our Homes) that is aimed at removing the confusion from the new home purchase experience. While some homebuilders have chosen to reduce the features included in their homes with the hope of selling the customer high-priced upgrades, Adams Homes believes that value and satisfaction is delivered to the homebuyer by offering a home that includes the features that most homebuyers want. In the words of Wayne Adams, “Regardless of price, size, or location, all buyers want their builder to deliver value.”

Adams Homes Culture

Adams Homes has a unique outlook towards homebuilding. While many companies have endless manuals and standard procedures by which to operate, Adams Homes attempts to limit “red tape” and allow our managers and Team Members to serve the homebuyers’ needs at a local level. Although all companies need some level of structure and procedure, we believe that every situation is not the same and that we have surrounded ourselves with great people who will treat the customer as we would expect to be treated.

Adams Homes Mission

To deliver value to our customers through a straightforward approach to building quality new homes. An approach that creates a win-win outcome for all parties involved.
