An Open Letter from Norma Hames

June 24, 2019

We continue to celebrate our 50th year in business. Norma Hames, now 85 years young, co-founder of Hames-The Homes People, penned this open letter to her family, the people of Iowa, and our amazing customers.


This year marks the 50th year for a business started by our founder, Curt Hames. 1969 is the year full of memories that started it all.


After 23 years serving our country and the fine Americans in it, Curt wanted to be the entrepreneur he soon became. Together Curt and Norma (that’s me), working very hard with our 3 children, Troy, Barbara, and Cynthia, began a good life in Iowa. We all love this land and the honest, good-hearted folks who live here.


We are grateful to our many customers who have chosen their beautiful and well-built homes from The Homes People. Curt is not with us now, but in heaven. We miss him. Hames Homes says thank you to Curt, to all our customers, our employees, and our three children who are now carrying on at Hames Homes.


God bless you all,

Norma Hames

As a Marine, flight attendant and actor, I have been all over America and the Hames family is what America is all about. Honest, friendly, caring loyal and fund to be around. America is lucky to have them. I so wish everyone in the world had their character. It would e a better place. I'm proud to have them in my life and every time I see them they put a smile on my face.
