Paul Irvin, Sam's son and the current CEO of Irvin Construction Company attributes their win to a "revolutionary home design that included a laundry room moved from the garage to inside the house and a master bathroom with his and hers sinks.
The home sold for $200,000 - quite a sum in Ocala in 1985!
had a flair for home design that set his
homes apart from the other homes in their categories.
It encouraged him to expand upon his
ideas about design and trends and give his
home buyers more of what they've really been searching for in a new home.
According to Paul Irvin
, "Where we came from, most things you wanted or needed you had to do for yourself.
So, you made sure you did it right the first time.
Dad just naturally built his
homes that way, using only the very best materials and the best labor.
Just like he'd do it for himself.
Today, Irvin Construction Company, Inc.
builds their homes with that very same philosophy firmly in place, though Sam's two sons, Paul
and Mark, are running the company now.
Paul, CEO of Irvin Construction, became a licensed real estate broker and a licensed contractor and is in charge of their Ocala Division.
Says Paul Irvin
, "People end up building with us because they have confidence that we will deliver what we promise.
"It's a process," according to Paul
, "that, the more we talk and we learn about our customers' families, about the demands their lives place on them, the more we can arrive at the right home design.
They depend on us for that," says Paul Irvin
When asked to elaborate on the Irvin difference, Paul Irvin
did not hesitate.
"One last thing I would like people to know," said Paul
