A uniquely American company, GL Homes was founded in 1976. Built by Itchko Ezratti, who believed that hard work, integrity, and quality craftsmanship would be successful in the Florida marketplace, GL Homes has grown into one of Florida’s largest homebuilders.
Despite being the company’s founder and CEO/Chairman, Itchko Ezratti works closely with many of the company’s earliest employees. The son of company founder Itchko Ezratti, Misha Ezratti is President of GL Homes and oversees operations throughout the state. Misha Ezratti continues to reinforce the culture, started by his father, that “employees and customers are part of the GL Homes family.”
GL Homes’ average manager tenure is now over 22 years, and Itchko Ezratti and Misha Ezratti have built the most experienced team of construction professionals in the industry by hiring and retaining the best people in the business. Employee loyalty is a key component of GL Homes’ success, according to Itchko Ezratti and Misha Ezratti. Today, these original values are reflected in every house that is built by GL Homes.
Because GL Homes started and only built in Florida, GL Homes knows how to design a home to thrive in the unique tropical region that is built to last for generations. From distinctive architectural designs with energy-efficient materials and sturdy concrete block construction to maximizing outdoor living spaces, GL Homes knows Florida better than anyone.
With a more than 45-year track record, countless industry awards and accolades, and, most importantly, more than 100,000 happy GL homeowners, it’s easy to see how GL Homes has grown into a top luxury home builder across both Florida and the nation.
