The Ovation Family of Companies has been creating great living space in Weber and Davis counties for over 20 years.
Under the brands, Ovation Homes and Aspire Homes, they build homes to suit the present and future needs of their clients. It’s all about building a home that supports a lifestyle. ‘Building People’ is the foundational value of the Ovation Family of Companies. They apply this philosophy to the corporate culture in their office, and all the way through to their clients. “Our products create solutions for communities. We really listen to our buyers, and we want them to be happy.”
Laurie has more than 30 years of experience in the construction industry, and is one of the few women in Utah that holds a General Contractors license. She has been in a leadership role on the executive team with Ovation Homes for almost three years. She oversees the construction of over 100 homes per year for both the Ovation and Aspire products. “We have a great team! Our focus on ‘Building People’ creates an environment of collaboration that carries forward to our clients. Our open communication style helps clients navigate the building process and with our teams experience we can handle any situation that may arise. Creating an environment where employees and clients can happily move through the building process is our goal. Ovation Homes is a great place to work!”
For the first time in the history of the company, they have created a Multi-Generational Community in West Point, Utah called Harvest Fields where both the Ovation and Aspire products are offered. We have two phases dedicated to Active Adult buyers who are usually empty nesters that are looking toward the next phase of their life. The Cottages at Harvest Fields are perfect for people 55+ looking for a relaxing, low stress lifestyle. Single level living is at the heart of nearly all their designs, with optional lofts or basements for family and friends. These communities are set up with a HOA designed to take care of outdoor needs. They handle the landscaping and snow removal. Laurie says, “You take care of the inside, and we’ll take care of the outside.”
Ovation consistently reviews their home designs based on what people need, like, and ask for. The most popular requests are often added as options for all. “We offer homes that make sense at every stage of life. We design our plans to be sensible and timeless.” Laurie loves working at Ovation and her ability to successfully manage her team is showcased in the homes they provide to the community.
