Jacobson Realty and Development of Yuma, Arizona was founded by Don and Larry Jacobson in 1971. Originally formed as a real estate sales and land development company, it has evolved into a company of several entities. Jacobson Realty and Development soon began building homes, and in January of 1977, the name of the company was changed to Jacobson Companies, Inc., to reflect the many additional activities that the company became involved in.
