HomeQuest Wins Orange County Business Journal’s Annual Family-Owned Business Small Business Award
HomeQuest was honored to recently be awarded the Small Business Award as part of the Orange County Business Journal’s 24th Annual Family-Owned Business Awards. Four executives in the Joffe family from HomeQuest were among nearly 400 guests at the awards luncheon at the Irvine Marriott.
HomeQuest was in the company of other well-respected local businesses that were also given awards, including MVS, Inc. (Mountain View Services), Crisp Imaging, Mutts, and El Cholo Family of Restaurants. The winners all represent multi-generational run companies that are not only rich in family history, but that have made noticeable community contributions and business accomplishments.
Founded 25 years ago, Yorba Linda based HomeQuest is now one the largest retailers of manufactured homes in the Western United States. The company has helped transform the manufactured housing industry and home buying experience by providing the technology for customers to easily shop and order a home online. This saves homebuyers both time and money while offering an unprecedented number of floorplans, features, and amenities from top manufacturers. HomeQuest can assist home buyers with everything from backyard ADUs used for home offices or guest quarters, to coastal weekend getaways, or larger primary residences.
A dedicated community partner, HomeQuest has worked with Habitat for Humanity over the years, as well as the Frank J. Evans Charitable Foundation every holiday to adopt families in need. This last holiday season, HomeQuest partnered with its community owner clients to donate nearly $100,000 in gifts to families in need. Although HomeQuest and its sister company, J & H Asset Property Management, Inc., began adopting families through local churches over 20 years ago, they have donated nearly $450,000 in wrapped gifts, gift certificates, and even rent assistance to families in their own communities over the last decade.
Another way HomeQuest gives back is that the company provides college scholarships for high school seniors in its communities. When the pandemic began, the company also donated over 10,000 masks to residents and provided food to struggling families.
“We pride ourselves on not only elevating the manufactured housing industry but our communities and residents as well, through giving back and helping where needed,” said HomeQuest partner and general manager Shane Joffe. “As a family-run business, we also treat our employees, clients, and their tenants as family. When businesses go the extra mile, it makes a difference.”
