Ellis R. Ivory, founder of Ivory Homes, began developing communities in Utah over 40 years ago. Initially we developed only lots, selling to both individuals and Utah home builders.
In 1983, Ivory Homes started building homes in their own developments. On November 27, 1987, Ellis registered the Ivory trademark, UTAH'S NUMBER ONE HOMEBUILDER. At that time, we were not the largest volume builder of new homes in Utah, we did not have the most locations, and there were improvements we wanted to make. With this trademark, he also made it clear that we would be committed to quality real estate in Utah for the long term future.
Since registering the trademark, Ivory Homes has been Utah's Number One HomeBuilder for 25 consecutive years in number of homes, quality, and customer service.
According to our current CEO, Clark Ivory, "The most important focus for our company is to continually improve the basics: quality, customer service, design, great communities, and improved value for our customers. As long as we are improving as a company we will live up to Ellis Ivory's challenge to be UTAH'S NUMBER ONE HOMEBUILDER."
Since Ellis' challenge, Ivory Homes has been the preferred Utah home builder for 24 consecutive years - building communities and new homes in Utah for every stage of life; from townhomes to move-up homes, and vacation & second homes to luxury villas. Ivory builds where you want to live and currently offers 52 locations along the Wasatch Front and St. George.
