Five Star rating across the board!

We have had a wonderful experience (start to finish) with everyone at Yates. I sent an e-mail earlier in the week letting all know how much we really appreciated everyone. I think we met or spoke with most of you staff and everyone was more than helpful with any questions we had.

Your folks definitely make this painless (for us anyways) as possible and we are truly grateful.

"...expertise and professionalism..."

We would like to thank Yates Home Sales for their expertise and professionalism with our new home. Our sales representative was very knowledgeable of her job and she knew what we wanted for our first home. We had toured many modular dealers but, my heart kept leading me back to Yates. The staff that built our home and the workers that put it together was on point with everything. We were never left with unanswered questions. Their tour homes is well kept and beautifully decorated inside so you as a customer can actually see yourself living in one of the modulars. That’s when my husband and I decided that Yates Homes was the place to go to have our home built.

So thanks to the staff at Yates for a job well done and a special thanks to our sales representative Lydia Gibson.

We are very pleased with our beautiful Yates home. The staff was very helpful and patient as we planned our custom built modular home. Since we had recently lost our first home to a fire we needed to move quickly to rebuild and move back on our land. Yates worked very hard to have our family in our new home as quickly as possible.
