Management Team

Ron Covington
Owner / Principal
Ron spent his early years in the building industry learning every aspect of the business in management and executive positions at the William Lyon Company and Classic Homes.  At night Ron attended classes and received his MBA in Finance from the University of Colorado.  From there he founded Estate Homes, which went on to become the Colorado Springs Division of John Laing Homes, and remained as President for seven years.  Under his leadership, his division was recognized nationally for being among the highest rated homebuilders in the U.S. for overall quality and homebuyer satisfaction.  The division he ran built and sold over 1,500 homes in the Pikes Peak region during his tenure.  Through these experiences as well as his participation in a joint-venture with Wells Fargo Mortgage, development of over 800 single family home sites, and numerous townhome andcondominium projects, Mr. Covington has gained valuable knowledge and skills in all sectors of Homebuilding and Real Estate.
Grace Covington
Owner / Principal

Grace started her career in Homebuilding at an early age by observing her father, an architect and contractor, and accompanying him to his various projects and job sites.  Her mother, an interior designer, would spend time with her reciting the different architectural styles and quizzing her on famous architects and their works. In her early college years she landed a position as Operations manager with a small local builder called Anderson Construction in Wellington, Colorado.  She was responsible for overall operations as well as being the second person in charge when it came to running the business.  It was at this company that Grace learned what it took to be an entrepreneur.  After gaining valuable knowledge and skills in both the public and private sectors of Homebuilding and Real Estate as well as ‘earning her stripes’ through executive positions such as Division Vice President for large national builders Grace moved on to start her own homebuilding and design company- GC Luxury Homes.  However, as Grace decided to change her focus from the mountain resort areas of Colorado to projects closer to home, she and Ron thought it wise to join forces to become Covington Homes.   And the rest as they say ‘Is History.’
