by Ruth Ward

Hartley Brothers was founded back in 1980 by Robert and his younger brother Phil. They initially worked as carpenters framing for a number of builders around the Gainesville area. As their framing business progressed, they started doing some additions and other construction work.

Within a year or two, they began building their own homes. Their first subdivision was comprised of one acre lots located off of Archer Road in Gainesville. At that time, the homes and lots were selling together for $49,000….have times changed!

Steve, the eldest brother, came to join the family business 1989.

The Hartley Brothers have built homes in Alachua, Gilchrist, Levy, Dixie, Union, Bradford, Putnam, Columbia and Marion counties over the years. In addition to building in a number of subdivisions, they also specialize in building on family land and rural lots. Since the 1980’s, Hartley Brothers has built over 1,500 homes in North Central Florida and have also been involved with many commercial projects.

Their families have also followed similar footpaths into the construction industry as well.

Steve and his wife Mardi, have two sons and a daughter. Both of their sons studied Building Construction in college with Jacob graduating from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville and Kyle graduating from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Today both Jacob and Kyle live in Bend, Oregon where they work as project managers for the same commercial construction company. Kyle is also joined in Oregon by his wife Aria and their son Haven. Steve’s daughter, Megan, lives with her husband Art, in Newport Virginia where Art is the head football coach at Christopher Newport University. Megan currently works for Builder’s Mutual Insurance which is based out of Raleigh, North Carolina where she is brand manager.

Robert and his wife Cheryl, have three sons that all obtained their building construction degrees from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. Matthew and his family live in Jacksonville, FL where Matthew works as a project manager for Stellar Group. Bryce and his wife Mary Kate live in Gainesville where Bryce also works as a project manager for Parrish McCall. Ross, the youngest of the three brothers, currently lives in Alachua, Florida. After completing his degree at the University of North Florida, Ross worked for a commercial builder (Faver Gray) in Jacksonville for several years before returning to the Gainesville area to join the family business. Ross currently lives in Alachua, FL where he heads up all of the new construction for Hartley Brothers today.

They built my parent’s house 30 years ago and they are still in it. Great work then. I can’t wait until I can have them build my own in a few more years.
