In 1965 Morris and Betty Montgomery started a small dealership known as Cape Mobile Home Mart, which in time became one of the largest dealership chains in the nation. The current location served as the home for this enormous company for many years. In the late 1980's the Montgomery's decided to downsize the business. In 1991 they turned the company over to their son, Monty. The name was changed to Monty's Manufactured Homes, but the work ethic and customer service remained the same. Monty would operate a very successful dealership for 16 years before selling the company in 2007 to Glyn and Kim Ferrell.
Glyn Ferrell's experience in the manufactured home industry goes back to his early childhood. His parents Marvin and Florence Ferrell started the very first manufactured home dealership in Southeast Missouri in the early 1960's. The name they gave this new company was Ferrell Mobile Homes. Being raised in the manufactured home business, Glyn was taught every facet of the business from delivery, installation & set up, central heat and air installation, manufacturing and construction of homes, financing, insurance, and the all important service issues that are required. Glyn gained valuable knowledge from the early pioneers of the Manufacturered Housing industry. It was his priority to grow and maintain these relationships, as well as developing new ones.This led to his election as President/CEO of Ferrell Mobile Homes Inc. As Glyn obtained ownership in 2007, he brought his additional knowledge and experience to share in the operations of Monty's Manufactured Homes.
It takes more than just selling homes to have a successful company. Generations of involvement in the Manufactured Housing Industry, along with priority and dedication to customer satisfaction all contribute to the success and longevity of Monty's.
