Meet The Team

Sid & Laura Davis

Owners

Our saying around here is: “you’re not married until you work together”. Well we’ve been married for 26 plus years and still enjoy each other’s company even through working together. We’ve managed to not only run a business together for the past 10 years, but have 4 great kids (3 girls and a boy). They get mad at us because anymore we talk about our grandkids instead of them. Currently, we have 4 grandkids (or “grand’s” as we call them), 2 girls and 2 boys, but we are hoping for a dozen or better. We love being grandparents and the time that we get to spend together. Some of those times are enjoyed on our tri-toon boat at a local lake, or visiting family in Florida or just sitting out back on the patio at our hobby farm watching the dogs, goats, cows and horses roam. We’ve also spent time coaching girls’ softball with our daughters, riding horses, raising animals and lots of church activities. Sid has pretty much always been in the family business. But, if you had told us back in HS (yes, we are HS sweethearts) that this is what we would end up doing, we both would have bet against it. God has interesting ways of showing us his plans. Laura spent 15 year as a credit union CEO so her background in bookkeeping and lending is a tremendous asset. A question we get asked a lot is: “Do you live in one of your homes?” The answer is, YES! We live in a 1600 sq ft manufactured home over a basement. Over the last 20 years we’ve found ways to keep improving our home with little remodel jobs here and there as our tastes or needs change. We also own 12 rental units that are manufactured homes, so you can see that we really like what we are doing. We’d like the opportunity to spend time with your family and help you with your housing needs and goals.

Serving Iowa Since 1972

Davis Homes is a retailer of factory-built homes that’s been in business since 1972. It’s a family owned business in its second generation of ownership. Don & Rita Davis started the business with one single wide on a rented piece of property in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. This home was both office and model home. Don would hire the “good old boy” and/or the preacher next door to help him set up a home after a sale.

In 1978, Don moved Davis Homes to the west side of Mt. Pleasant where he operated the business for 30 years. Having four sons was an advantage on many summer days when home set up was the busiest. Don & Rita’s oldest son Sid went to college, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, and then came back to help Don for a summer in 1994 and never left.

After many discussions and much prayer, on July 1st, 2008, Sid & Laura Davis purchased Davis Homes from Don & Rita and moved the business across town where the new highway bypass was built. The property that was purchased for the business was an old farmstead. All of the buildings were torn down except for the silo, which has been preserved both for nostalgia and as a landmark.

Currently, Sid Davis owns Davis Homes, spending most of his days with customers on their properties and helping our awesome set up crew. Laura Davis manages our office and finances. We also maintain full-time contract employees who work for Davis Homes setting and servicing our homes.
