ABOUT FORRESTER WEHRLE HOMES
Who We Are
Our company was started in 1965 when our founders, Tom Forrester and Dick Wehrle, first began building houses. During the next 40 years, we at Forrester Wehrle Homes have established ourselves to become the Toledo area's leading home builder. We’ve built nearly 3,000 homes in developments throughout greater Toledo and southeastern Michigan.
Building industry professionals agree that Forrester Wehrle Homes is the area’s leading home builder. We’ve been recognized as the Builder of the Year by the Sales and Marketing Council of the Greater Toledo Home Builders Association. We’ve also been recognized as one of the "Top 400 Builders" in the nation by "Professional Builders" magazine, the only area builder to achieve such distinction.
We’re committed to serving the community. We have an established tradition of partnering with the Toledo Board of Education to sponsor a local inner-city school, providing them with supplies, playground equipment and Christmas gifts for every student. We work with the United Way as a special sponsor, as well as with a number of other community based charitable organizations.
In 2005 Forrester Wehrle Homes was named the “National Builder of the Year” by the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for our work. The home that we built and donated for this fine organization raised more than $500,000 to help them carry out their important work in the fight against childhood cancer.
No builder in the area can surpass our proven track record of service and integrity. You can build with confidence when you choose Forrester Wehrle Homes.
