About Us

Homes by Towne® is the brand name under which Zilber Ltd. markets its mainland U.S. residential home building division. In 1949, Joe Zilber saw a need to build quality homes for America’s returning GIs. Today, we build single-family and condominium homes across the U.S. preserving the dream of quality home ownership.
