Hamlet History copy

The first Hamlet company, Hamlet Development Corporation, was founded April 1994 with a vision of providing top quality value priced communities within Northern Utah. A top notch management team was assembled and four organizations were eventually founded to address almost every customer need related to the residential real estate market. The four organizations that comprised the Hamlet companies were Hamlet Development, Hamlet Homes, Stirling Mortgage, and Diversified Habitats. In November of 2011 Stirling Mortgage after 14 years of operations was a victim of the housing market collapse and was closed down. Diversified Habitats was wound down in 2008. Today we continue operations with Hamlet Homes, Hamlet Development and a commercial division of Hamlet Development.

The focus at Hamlet Homes continues to be "to provide attractively designed and cost effective homes". Since the inception of our company, Hamlet Homes has provided over 3,326 families a place to call home.

Since 1994 Hamlet Development has been responsible for the creation of 49 communities along the Wasatch front containing over 4,200 home sites. In addition to providing home sites for Hamlet Homes, Hamlet Development has provided homes sites to a wide variety of builders across the Wasatch front. Hamlet Development Corporation's objective is to provide developed lot inventory to Hamlet Homes as well as to oversee the Company's commercial operations. These commercial operations included management of offices buildings and oversight of Elsinore Communications. Elsinore provides internet services to many of the communities developed by Hamlet.

Diversified Habitats was a unique component of the Hamlet companies. Beginning in 1996 Diversified was the first commercial wetland mitigation bank in the state of Utah. Its function was to provide offsite wetland mitigation for the unavoidable loss of wetlands in development sites. In its time, it was most unusual for a residential developer to also be a developer of new wetlands. Over the years Diversified Habitats created over 300 acres of new vibrate wetlands along the shore of the Salt Lake.

Hamlet is committed to creating communities that are well planned and blend into the neighborhood diversity of a community. Below is a summary of the 35 Hamlet communities created to date:
