At Hamlet Homes, we are committed to providing our homebuyers with quality, customer-oriented townhomes and single-family homes located in attractively designed neighborhoods in northern Utah. We are also recognized as a leader in urban redevelopment and transit-oriented communities. As of this year, Hamlet Homes has created over 3,900 homes in 65 communities.
Our success in achieving customer satisfaction – your satisfaction – is measured by an 93% average approval rating in ongoing surveys. This positive response demonstrates that we understand what it takes to assist you in making your house a cherished home. (We invite you to read our Customer Testimonials on our Home page.)
When one thinks about building a new home – it is both exciting and scary at the same time. This endeavor is not an easy one. It is by far the biggest purchase you will ever make, but an investment that can do so much more than provide a roof over your head. It is a place to create memories, grow a family, begin a new chapter in your life, but most of all, it’s a place to call HOME. Where you come home to, take off your shoes and breathe a sigh of relief that you are there. It’s YOUR place.
Taking this all into consideration, Hamlet Homes has built its company on the foundation of good ethics, quality products, great build times and customer service. And for 25 years now – celebrating that huge milestone this year – that has got us to where we are today. Surviving the recession and continuing to do business with a solid set of bones. But, with new ownership, an adapting culture and a more vibrant, younger and deliberate mindset, Hamlet Homes has set it goals to become not just a homebuilder resource – but be THE source for your homebuying needs and wants.
This means, we thoughtfully design our homes with feedback from our homeowners, we stay in close contact with our homeowners throughout the entire homebuilding process and we make sure that our homebuyers love their new homes – which means our relationship does not end on the day of closing. As a matter of fact, we have stayed in contact with many of our homebuyers for many years after closing and continue to be close friends with them on social media and email. We all feel really invested in our homeowners and their experience. We want to make this experience fun, exciting and less stressful. Changing the way building a home feels.
Hamlet’s dedication to building quality homes and attractive communities is further measured in the awards we receive. These include the Builder of Integrity Award from the Quality Builder Warranty Corporation in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2010; and Utah’s Best of State medal for Residential Construction in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007 and for Real Estate Development in both 2019 and 2020. The company has also been a finalist in the National Housing Quality Awards as well as the recipient of the 2009 Governor’s Quality Growth Award. In 2015, Hamlet Homes received a Green Business Award for sustainable building and design from Utah Business and in 2016 was named Best Home Builder from the City of South Salt Lake. Hamlet Homes was named the SL Chamber’s Veteran Owned Business of the Year for 2019, received the 2019 Best of State award for Real Estate Development and was named as a Housing Giant for 2019 by Professional Builder Magazine.
