The Toll Brothers story.
At Toll Brothers, we love to say that our pride is palpable. Not only are we proud of the superior quality luxury homes we build, we're proud of the legacy we've crafted within the home building industry.
It all started in the mid 1960s when two brothers, Bob and Bruce Toll, found the right piece of land in rural Pennsylvania and opened their first new home community in 1967. They had a vision for building more than just homes. Together, they recognized a growing demand for luxury homes within communities where amenities, convenience, and friendships created a unique lifestyle.
Decades later, we're proud to be the nation's premier builder of luxury homes. Our master-planned communities, golf courses, active living communities, and city living properties are located in 51 markets and 20 states across the U.S.
We're also proud of our multiple ancillary businesses, including mortgage services, engineering, component manufacturing, assembly, and beyond. By design, our subsidiaries are fully integrated with Toll Brothers to deliver on our brand.
