Our History

From the beginning, Rockford Homes has been a family endeavor. Robert Yoakam, Sr. started the company in 1982 with the intention of creating a family business he could pass on to future generations. Yoakam Sr.’s vision of Rockford Homes was successful. The company was passed on to Bob Yoakam, Jr. who served as Rockford’s President from the late 1990’s until 2015. With Yoakam Jr.’s untimely passing, the Yoakam family promoted Don Wick to President in the spring of 2015. Wick has been with the company since it’s founding and now directs the company’s growth and land position. Today, Rockford Homes continues the same family ownership and will carry on its rich tradition of being one of Central Ohio’s largest family-owned homebuilders.

Our Philosophy

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.

Our Commitment to You

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.

For more than 35 years, Rockford Homes has been building new homes and condominiums throughout Central Ohio. We’ve never wavered in our commitment to quality and your satisfaction. That’s why we’ve earned one of the highest repeat customer and referral rates in the industry – and we’re ready to prove our commitment to you.
