Building turn-key homes in the heart of the
NY Hudson River Valley & Beyond

In 1960, John & Margaret Alvarez began providing affordable housing to residents in and around Hudson, NY. Throughout that sixty-plus years, and with an ongoing commitment to providing quality and value for their neighbor customers, John A. Alvarez & Sons, Inc. has maintained a reputation for fair pricing, great workmanship, and honesty.  Their business practices have always reflected their own family values while enabling their customers to afford the best quality manufactured and modular homes for their budget.  Meeting and exceeding each homeowner’s expectations has always been and continues to be at the heart of the Alvarez homebuilding business.

In the early 1980s John Alvarez & Sons, Inc. began offering the Ritz-Craft brand of modular and manufactured homes. Ritz-Craft’s owners, the Paul John family from Mifflinburg, PA, and the Alvarez family began a journey, business relationship, and personal friendship that has endured and grown greatly over the four decades since Alvarez’s first Ritz-Craft purchase. Since that initial meeting, Ritz-Craft has continued to grow and expand. Still based near its original manufacturing plant in PA, Ritz-Craft has since grown to become the largest, family-owned and operated off-site modular manufacturer in the US.  Throughout their continuous forty-plus year relationship, Ritz-Craft and Alvarez have provided many hundreds of homes for families throughout the Hudson Valley.

After more than 63 years in the housing industry, the Alvarez Family decided to pass the baton and retire from their family business. It was decided that, with the right successor to carry the banner, they would like their founding-family name to continue to be recognized as synonymous with high-quality new homes in the region.  That vision for the next generations of home buyers is now complete with the transfer of ownership of John Alvarez and Sons Homes to its new owner—their long-term business colleagues and personal friends at Ritz-Craft.  The official new company name is now Alvarez Homes, a division of Ritz-Craft but the location, service, attention to quality, and value will remain as before in honor of the family name and reputation built by the Alvarez family. The sales center location will continue to be staffed with the same friendly and competent team.  We hope to see you soon.
