Serving Yuma, Arizona and surrounding communities since 1971

In March of 1971… Don and Larry Jacobson founded Jacobson Realty and Development, which is now known as Jacobson Homes division of Jacobson Companies.  The company was originally formed for real estate sales and land development but quickly added home building to its scope of activities.  Jacobson Realty and Development became the Jacobson Companies in 1977 and the became The Jacobson Companies, Inc. in 1996.

Over the years, Jacobson Companies has developed many of the premier neighborhoods in Yuma, including Vista Del Valle, Villa Cordova, Sunset Mesa, and Del Valle Terrace.   Since 1971, we’ve built well over 3000 homes in Yuma County.  Today, we are proud to continue our involvement in Yuma with planned communities such as Yuma East Estates, Villa Chaparral, and Cielo Verde.  We’ve opened new phases in both Cielo Verde and Yuma East this year.

In 1973 Southwest Lumber opened it’s doors.  We started it initially to supply building materials to our in-house company projects.  It quickly expanded its retail operation, and became a True Value hardware store.  Eventually we added small tools rental with Just Ask Rental.  In 2015, we decided to change our co-op warehouse from True value to Do-It-Best to better serve our customers, and it has been a great change for us and the community.  We continue to offer a wide assortment of tools, hardware, and lumber for the contractors and do-it-yourselfers in the Yuma Community.  We are proud to be Yuma County’s locally owned Hometown Hardware store.

Bruce Jacobson joined his brothers in 1975, bringing his engineering and land surveyor experience to the newly formed Jacobson Engineering.  He and his staff have provided planning and design for numerous projects throughout the West.  Currently we offer services for civil engineering, surveying, master planning and ground penetrating radar and radio detection.

Again In 1976, the company expanded with the formation of Yuma Valley Contractors.  As a general contractor, Yuma valley has been helping businesses, schools and government agencies with multitudes of commercial and underground projects in the Lower Colorado River Valley of Arizona and California.

No job is too big or too small.  Our success in the area allows us to enjoy a presence in the community that can work to your advantage as well.

In the early 2003, Bruce Jacobson partnered to finish construction on the Premier Storage Condominiums of Yuma located in the Foothills area of Yuma, AZ.  These are large size covered storage units that are just right to store boats, RV’s, off-road equipment, vehicles, household items and business inventory.  Bruce turned over management of the Owner’s Association for this facility to the owner’s in 2015.  We do still have over 20 units available for rent or purchase at this location.

In 2008, Jacobson Companies built the Premier Storage Condominiums of Yuma Unit 2 on 32nd Street and Avenue 3 3/4E as a different entity.  In 2016, a 3rd building was added to this location, with plans for a fourth building in 2018.  We have a full range of units sizes available at this location for sale or rent.
