The WestBay Story

A Rare Opportunity… evolves into a Rare Company.

The story of Homes by WestBay begins during the uncertain times of 2009, at the lowest point of the greatest housing downturn in recent history. Amid this volatile time, our tenacious and visionary founders seized what we now know as a very rare opportunity.

As many other home builders were exiting the market, it was clear that while there were fewer buyers overall, those that were seeking new homes were looking for a higher level of quality and superior workmanship… the perfect clients for Homes by WestBay.

Builder for the Discerning Homebuyer.

In our first year of production, we built and delivered 63 well-appointed homes. We were delighted to unexpectedly exceed expectations by more than double.

Our mission then and now is to deliver a better way of life to homeowners in Tampa Bay through the best customer experience in the industry. We work to uphold a reputation of exceptional quality and value within our price range, superior design and to lead the market in customer satisfaction. From our first, pioneering home buyers to the 800 or more homes we deliver annually today, we continually strive to deliver on our mission.

Proudly the preferred builder of choice for master-planned communities in Tampa

We have also positioned ourselves to develop and deliver exclusive Homes by WestBay communities.

Much of our success has been attributed to our committed, highly-motivated and goal-oriented team of talented professionals—many of whom are award-winners in their fields of expertise.

We employ an elite team of top architects, engineers and industry experts who collectively bring over a century of experience. Their contributions are critical to accomplishing our mission.

Homes by WestBay now stands alongside or ahead of some of the nation’s largest homebuilders. We’ve become Tampa’s largest, locally-owned and operated new home builder. Being independent allows us a lot of flexibility and responsiveness to adapt to the changes in the marketplace. We are beholden to no one other than our 3,700 and counting customers so we can change and adjust more quickly to provide what today’s homeowners seek in a new home.
