About Marlette Homes

At Marlette Homes, there's always been a difference…

Since its beginnings in 1953, there has always been a difference at Marlette Homes. That difference? Quality construction and customer satisfaction, a difference that has distinguished Marlette Homes from the rest of the industry.

The company was started in an old converted lumber yard in Marlette, Michigan by Earl Swett, the “Father of Manufactured Housing Standards”, and his partners Charlie Ballard and Paul Riedle. But these modest circumstances belied the distinctive quality of the product that was generated even in those days.

Swett earned his reputation as a quality trendsetter by being an influential voice and an energetic advocate for premium product construction and consumer protection throughout those early years and beyond. He pioneered Marlette Homes in its efforts to advance electrical, heating, cooling, and plumbing standards ahead of its competitors. Our many satisfied customers, even then, commonly referred to Marlette Homes as “The Cadillac” of the industry.

Since those early beginnings Marlette Homes has broadened its product offerings to include a whole host of features like granite countertops, ceramic tile showers, stainless steel appliances, and many more.

We have one of the most experienced management and construction teams in the industry. Our homes are constructed under perfect building conditions which include a climate controlled environment. We use the highest quality materials and multiple inspection processes. Marlette Homes has always been known as an innovative builder. With our in-house design and drafting team, we are able to customize our numerous home plans to meet your needs and desires. And Marlette Homes was applying “green” building processes and materials to the construction of its homes, even prior to green becoming a new age term.

The company's dedication to quality and customer satisfaction has generated numerous awards over it's more than seven decades, including national honors as the nation's Manufacturer of the Year, as well as repeatedly being the number one builder of Super Good Cents, Natural Choice, Eco-Rated, and Energy Star homes in the West.
