San Joaquin Valley Homes Closes on 3,500th Home

April 27th, 2023


Local Valley Homebuilder Presents a $500 Check to One Recent Homebuyer in Each of its 13 Communities

VISALIA, Calif. – San Joaquin Valley Homes (SJV Homes) has closed its 3,500th home in under 10 years in the homebuilding business.

To commemorate this milestone, SJV Homes is recognizing a recent homebuyer in each neighborhood with a $500 check. The gifts are being distributed individually this month to 13 families now living in their new homes across the valley.

“We’re happy to recognize our 3,500th home closing by sharing this moment with these 13 homebuyers,” said Joe Leal, co-founder of the private home-building company based in Visalia. “We’re honored they chose and trusted us to build their homes.”

SJV Homes has come a long way over the past decade. Founded in 2013, the company has grown steadily and is now one of the most active homebuilding operations in our area today. Leal credits his employees as the driving force behind its success. “

“Our growth is the result of hard work and dedication by our entire team,” Leal said. “Together, we look forward to continuing to build homes that our customers love and creating communities where families thrive.”

Founded in 2013 by Joe Leal, Jim Robinson and Randy Merrill, SJV Homes is a local homebuilder currently developing new home neighborhoods in Dinuba, Hanford, Kingsburg, Porterville, Tulare and Visalia. For the past four years, SJV Homes has made the prestigious Builder 100 list, a ranking of the top homebuilders in the United States put out each year by Builder magazine.
