About Us

A Legacy of Excellence

Family Business

The Norfleet family moved to Newberry, FL., in 1895 and has been building homes in Alachua County since 1981. For over 30 years, the Norfleets have taken pride in building energy efficient, quality, custom homes that are finished in a timely fashion. Norfleet Homes has the experience, background, and resources to build your dream home, and we serve a wide array of customers in the Gainesville area.Photograph of Tripp Norfleet owner of Norfleet Homes of Gainesville and Newberry and his family.

E.D. “Tripp” Norfleet III, a second-generation builder in Newberry and Gainesville, FL, has an appreciation for the past but is always looking to improve the plans and developments of the future. Tripp is a member of the Builders Association of North Central Florida as well as a realtor and general contractor. Tripp and his wife, Kristie, strongly value family and have been blessed with two wonderful children, Zeke and Christianna. With a strong faith in God and a respect for people, Tripp and Kristie believe in the principle, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

Our Commitment to Gainesville

A strong sense of obligation to Newberry’s growth and development runs in the Norfleet family: both Tripp’s grandmother and grandfather served as the mayor of Newberry, and Tripp has inherited their deep devotion to the town. Along with a legacy in building, Tripp’s father passed down the principles of honesty, loyalty, and commitment to community service, which Norfleet translates into local involvement.
