Established in 1974, DeYoung Properties continues a family legacy, now in its third generation, of helping families realize the American dream: home ownership. The tradition began 60 years ago when homebuilding pioneer, John Bonadelle, built the first of more than 17,000 homes that earned him the distinction of being one of Central California’s largest and most visionary homebuilders. John’s daughter and son-in-law, Paula and Jerry De Young, established De Young Properties, which has built over 7,000 of the area’s finest homes and has enhanced the family’s reputation through unsurpassed quality, innovation and customer service. Today, the newest members of the De Young Properties team, Jon Ryan, Brandon and Ashley De Young, represent the family’s third generation and its commitment to extending the legacy of quality homebuilding well into the future.
De Young’s family tradition extends beyond building homes. We contribute time and resources to our local community, including serving as proud builder and major donor of the Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 and for the ABC television show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. De Young Properties was also featured on HGTV’s prime-time television series, Showhouse Showdown, where two professional HGTV designers competed for winning design. Whether raising funds for children, building a home for a local hero or supporting local schools, non-profits and community groups, De Young gives dreams and hope to their community.
The company’s vision defines and drives its direction and instills the corporate values that stress progress, industry leadership, and above all, excellence. While De Young Properties brings world class innovation and its signature quality to the Fresno, Clovis and Madera region, the company is proudly and deeply rooted in the San Joaquin Valley. The team is invested in the Valley, living here, raising families here and sharing deep understanding of the nuances of our community. Which means De Young Properties is committed to serving this area for years – even decades – to come.
With corporate offices in Fresno, De Young Properties has an extremely motivated, dedicated and knowledgeable team of professionals. Many of them share the De Young family tradition of being leaders in their field of expertise for multiple generations.
Finding the perfect home is only part of building the American Dream. Financing it is the other. With 60 years of family experience, De Young Properties remains committed to providing affordable home ownership and is pleased to recommend its affiliate, Premier Mortgage. As thousands of local homeowners can attest, Premier Mortgage offers the smartest programs and one-stop financing to make the home-buying process simple and satisfying.
From the 1940s to well into the next century, the family behind De Young Properties has focused on one goal: building homes your family will cherish for many years to come.
