At Covington Homes we are focused on Building Community, building quality homes at a practical price, and maintaining the highest level of customer service.
Covington Homes is a local owned business committed to building homes for the joy of experiencing the smiling faces of our homeowners on the day we hand over the keys. Grace and Ron Covington, partners and long time real estate professionals, continue to bring beautiful and exceptionally well-built homes and communities to Colorado Springs and El Paso County with the hard work and dedication of our award-winning Team. As a result, our homes stand the test of time.

Director of Construction
Born and raised in Texas, Jason and grew up with his brother and parents in the wide-open country where he learned to appreciate nature and its beauty. When he was in high school, he not only played football, he was also a member of the FFA (Future Farmers of America) and would raise and show steer locally in Garland, Texas.
Jason's love of all thing’s nature translated into his interest in Wildlife Biology, and he earned his Bachelors of Science in Wildlife and Fisheries from Texas A&M. After graduation he became a Wildlife Biologist and worked throughout Texas and Oklahoma. However, a unique opportunity arose for Jason to become a warranty manager for a homebuilding company in Dallas and he jumped at the opportunity.
Jason quickly rose up through the ranks there, and within the first year started managing his own communities as a project manager. From there he became a manager of multiple communities and field supervisors. His stellar performance at this building company caused trade partners to take note and from there he was referred to Meritage Homes of Colorado where he was hired as Project Manager to run multiple communities in the Denver area. Then Jason transferred back to Dallas and became Director of Construction for all Dallas-Fort Worth operations.
But Colorado kept calling Jason and his family back. So, when the opportunity for him to be the Director of Construction for Covington Homes in Colorado Springs arose Jason and his family were quite happy to move back 'home' to Colorado. Jason very much appreciates the opportunity to work for a local privately held Homebuilder/ Developer that values its employees and encourages a culture of team and family. Jason oversees the construction and customer care teams. Covington Homes is happy to have such a great addition to the management team.
