About Rockford Homes

Our Story

Rockford Homes History

The Rockford Homes

Founded in 1985 by Robert E. Yoakam Sr., Rockford Homes has been serving customers for over 35 years providing the excellent quality construction and service that has become synonymous with the Rockford Homes brand. Rockford Homes has grown to become Central Ohio’s largest privately held home builder by serving its customers in the best locations at competitive prices. Rockford has been directed by great leadership navigating ever-changing customer needs and standards beginning with its founder Robert E. Yoakam Sr. to Robert E. Yoakam Jr. who served as President from 1992 to 2015 to Donald R. Wick serving as President from 2015 to 2018 and now to a third generation in Robert E. Yoakam. Today, Rockford Homes continues the same family ownership and will carry on its rich tradition of being Central Ohio’s largest family-owned homebuilder.

The Rockford Homes

The core philosophy that has guided Rockford Homes throughout its growth and success is the commitment to building quality homes at competitive prices in the best locations. Because we remain a privately held company, we have the flexibility to make our business decisions locally and respond to our customer needs quickly. We constantly update the designs and features of our homes in response to customer feedback and we maintain prime locations to assure lasting value of your home.

Rockford Homes Commitment

The Rockford Homes

A home is the largest single purchase most people will make in their lifetime. With this fact in mind, Rockford makes sure you’re involved in every step of the process – from the moment you walk into one of our models to the moment you back the moving truck to your brand new home. And our commitment to service and warranty extends well beyond move-in. We offer a wide selection of single-family homes in 25 Central Ohio Communities. We also provide a convenient Design Center where our professional design consultants can help you choose the products and features to personalize your Rockford home to suit your style.

Build Your Future - Rockford Homes

Rockford Homes was named BIA (Building Industry Association) Builder of the Year in both 2002 and 2016 for encouraging the American dream of homeownership, maintaining professional excellence, and supporting the standards and policies of the BIA.
