On March 8, 2022, The Olson Company was presented "The Eliant" award at the 27th Annual Homebuyers' Choice Awards. This is the third consecutive year that Olson has won this prestigious award for Overall Home Purchase & Ownership Experience (single-division builder) with more than 200 homes closed, a true testament to their passion for developing attainable housing in one of the most challenging states in the nation for first-time homebuyers. Eliant Inc. recognized The Olson Company and other homebuilders for their dedication to elevating the overall homebuyer experience, including purchase and design experience, construction quality, service, and communication.
