Our residential custom home building service is centered around families. Adam grew up in the family business, and family-oriented service is all he knows. As we build your dream home, we form long-term relationships with you and yours, and you become part of our extended family.

You can expect to see us around quite a bit over the time we work together. We are in contact regularly, and we’ll come by and visit whenever there’s something we need to sit down and talk about. We can handle your entire project from A to Z, connecting all the dots to smoothly and seamlessly guide your project from concept to completion.

If this sounds like the type of home builder you want to do business with, we invite you to contact us for a complimentary, no obligation consultation. We appreciate your business and we look forward to serving you!

Our History

From our family to yours.

Adam’s grandfather John Merrill started his Real Estate career in 1954 when he opened John Merrill, Realtor in Gainesville, Florida. He built his career around honest business and great service.  This same great service continues today nearly 60 years later, through Adam who shares his grandfather’s passion and business sense.

The family’s values of professionalism, honesty, and integrity that were instilled in Adam from the very beginning are what drive the success of John Merrill Homes.

Corey Hacker, director of events and programming for the Northeast Florida Builders Association and past client speaks on her experience working with Johne Merrill Homes. “Part of the beauty of working with Adam is that he’s so flexible and does what he can to make the client comfortable during the building process which can be very confusing and frustrating if you’re not working with the right builder,” Hacker said. “They’re just honest and great people. From the design process to the actual build, everything was seamless.”
