The year was 1966 when Jim Clayton's big moment arrived. He and his brother Joe had been hard at work with their car business when Jim was struck with an idea that would eventually pave the way for today's largest homebuilder in the nation. Having no office or any experience with selling manufactured housing (other than helping some college friends sell their mobile homes upon leaving Knoxville), Jim found a home manufacturer that needed someone to market their product. With Jim being a local celebrity and the South being the leader in manufactured home sales, he had a recipe for success. In no time business boomed, and for forty years the sight of the revolving mobile home in the sky marked the spot where you could find a quality-built home and salespeople who cared. Today, Clayton Homes of Knoxville, managed by Roger Alexander, offers quality modular and manufactured housing at an affordable price and continues to be one of the top selling retail centers in the nation. Roger and his staff proudly operate the largest Clayton dealer in the Southeast with 20-25 new models on display at all times. Their number one goal is to make the process of buying a home as smooth as possible. Achieving 5-Star Customer Service status each year, and an average of 100 homes sold per year there is little doubt to their success. Jim Clayton began opening doors to a better life in 1966 and two generations later, Roger and his team are continuing his dedication to quality and exceptional service...one home at a time.
