The Olson Company Celebrates it's 25th Anniversary of Building California Homes

May 8th, 2013

Seal Beach, Calif.— Not every builder can say they’ve been around a quarter of a century. With year 24 now behind them, Orange County-based builder The Olson Company is celebrating 25 years of building homes throughout California. Since it was founded, Olson has given thousands of residents a unique place to call home—something they could only dream of accomplishing back in the late eighties.

Since the Company was founded in 1988, it has provided homes for residents throughout California. From the start, the Company’s mission was to bring affordable housing to metropolitan neighborhoods located near transit, shopping, and entertainment. Completing hundreds of communities over the years, the Company carefully developed partnerships with cities to support the vision of each local community, providing extra care to ensure that future homebuyers would enjoy a unique place to live close to neighboring amenities.

The design orientation of Olson’s pedestrian-friendly communities (each with a name ending in “Walk”) ultimately drew homebuyers out of their cars and onto sidewalks to enjoy the benefits of each urban village. Life became an exploration of small shops, restaurants and local parks. Walking the dog was an important way to meet people in this setting. Olson communities became symbols of clean energy and navigating the neighborhood by foot.

Steve Olson, Chairman and Founder, says, “The Company has stayed true to its roots, continuing today to provide transit-oriented developments, California townhomes and small-lot detached homes that express architecturally the best attributes of each neighborhood.” Current offerings include new residences at Solana Walk in Fountain Valley, Harmony Walk in Garden Grove, Sausalito Walk in Los Alamitos, Village Walk in San Dimas, Oakgrove Walk in La Verne, Mosaic Walk in Alhambra and Mariposa Walk in El Segundo. He is most proud of the Company’s winning the First Place Award for the 2013 Customer Service and Construction Experience from homebuyers in an independent national survey by Eliant. This sets the stage for the next 25 years of homebuilding excellence.

Now leaders in the industry, Olson is gearing up for its 25th year. As professionals and families continue to gravitate toward the city to take advantage of urban living, convenience and employment opportunities, the builder is making big plans for new and upcoming communities throughout California.

The Olson Company is passionate about their pursuit of providing transit-oriented housing, mixed-use/live-work artists lofts, brownstones and neighborhood small-lot detached developments. Their commitment is to improve the local neighborhood experience by capturing the best that exists in each neighborhood socially and architecturally. For more information, please visit OlsonHomes.com.
