history
  • Lennar began in 1954, as F&R Builders, co-founded by Gene Fisher and Arnold Rosen.
  • In 1956 Leonard Miller joined F&R by investing $10,000 and replacing Gene as Arnold’s partner.
  • Through Leonard’s guidance and Arnold’s attention to construction, our hallmark traits of Quality, Value and Integrity were born.
  • In 1971 we became a public Company under the corporate banner of Lennar, a combination of Leonard and Arnold’s names.
  • Through the years, Lennar has grown to a disciplined and spirited team of Associates who have fine-tuned the art of identifying and capturing opportunities to grow and become an even better Company.
  • The result is a long proven track record of strategically timed and impeccably executed expansions into new markets.

As a result, Lennar now builds homes in some of the most desirable cities and states to live in all across America, and has now become one of the most respected homebuilders in the nation.
