Your family deserves the peace of mind that comes from working with a builder that has both longevity and a solid reputation of serving many other happy homeowners.

Howard Chilcutt & Ken Stricker

Our History: Building Homes and Communities Since 1927

The Consort Homes story is rich in St. Louis homebuilding history beginning more than 85 years ago with the founder of The Jones Company, John E. Jones. Those who know the St. Louis area probably know the name Bob Jones, who was the son of John E. Jones.

Bob purchased The Jones Company from his father in 1961. Bob and his partner, Howard Chilcutt, led The Jones Company to much success, growing the company and building homes for over 15,000 families during that time.

In 2003, Centex offered to purchase the St. Louis homebuilding company from Bob and Howard. It was an offer that was hard to turn down, and they did not. Howard and Bob did, however, retain ownership of The Jones Company of Tennessee.

In 2005, the Legacy continued when Howard founded Consort Homes in St. Louis. He hired Ken Stricker, former President of The Jones Company in St. Louis, as President of Consort Homes. Both Consort Homes and The Jones Company of Tennessee are still family-owned by the Chilcutt and Jones families.

If you are considering the purchase of a new home in Greater St. Louis, why not consider purchasing a home from the Jones and Chilcutt Families – a Consort Home – from a homebuilding company with an 85-year history of providing value and customer satisfaction to the City of St. Louis.
