Legacy Builders of North Florida, Inc.

Headquartered in Jacksonville’s Mandarin area, Legacy Builders of North Florida was established in 1997. Company president John Unkefer’s business philosophy is centered around one-on-one contact. To ensure that the process is smooth, he deals with all clients personally from start to finish.

Helping you build your legacy

“We work to bring our customers’ dreams to life and we believe building new homes is a team effort” says Unkefer. “We have built new homes in many of the finest neighborhoods in northeast Florida and welcome the opportunity to consult with future homeowners and help them to build their legacy.”

At Legacy, unlike other builders, corners are never cut and great pride is taken in the fact that quality is never sacrificed for any means. The Legacy home builder team only selects the most highly qualified subcontractors to work on their homes, in order to bring a superior level of craftsmanship to every corner of the homes they build.
