About Us

In 2007, Jason White continued the family legacy started by his father, Howard White. Started in 1977, North Florida Builders became quite large prior to the recession of the late 2000s. After 20 years of hands-on experience in every phase of homebuilding, Jason redefined the business to an intimate true custom homebuilder to serve the growing demand for quality homes in today’s market.  We want to build for you the home you want.  Our design meetings will explore the features and details that your home will offer to serve your needs and wants for many years to come.  From the initial introductory meeting to receiving your house keys, you will have access to our entire staff to keep you informed on all the phases involved with building your custom home.  We thrive on making the experience a pleasant one, about which you will be thrilled to share with others.


Take care of the customer.  We strive to do things right the first time, regardless.  No compromising on our quality or ethics. What is right, is right; and what is wrong, is wrong.

What Our Customers Have Said

Having recently retired and moved to St. Johns, we enlisted North Florida Builders to build our retirement home. Prior to that, we had lived in preexisting homes, with the idea that building a home would be a dreadful experience. Jason White and his assistant, Teresa Wright, pleasantly surprised us by turning the endeavor into an exciting “adventure”, the outcome of which we have been both happy and proud. They were a great team with whom to work. We found Jason to be both a competent builder and a good communicator who personalizes his work, as well as his relationship with his customers. Teresa was most professional and patient in her approach to guiding us through the layers of decision-making required to make our home exactly what we had envisioned. Our relationship did not end there. Even after the closing, Jason and Teresa were there for us in making additional finishing touches. We are honestly proud of the work of North Florida Builders, the personal treatment we received, and of their commitment to our satisfaction.
