Employee Spotlight: Meet Don Hamilton!

Categories: Community Involvement | Posted: November 13, 2018

At Providence Homes, our team is inspired by our pledge to make a difference. Every day, we work hard to provide our customers not only with beautiful, affordable homes, but with the kind of service that we would want for ourselves. Each one of our team members is a valuable part of what makes us different!

This week, we want to introduce you to Don Hamilton, a man who has a wealth of experience in many different fields, and has brought it all with him to Providence Homes! As a Supervisor, Don’s role is to oversee the building of each home. “I think the most exciting thing about being a part of Providence Homes is also the most challenging. When it comes down to it, my job is to delight each buyer throughout the process, to make sure that they are pleased with their decision to select Providence Homes to build their home.”Don Hamilton Featured Employee

Since graduating from college, Don has worked in a variety of fields, including as a teacher and coach in the public school system. “I have worked in the construction industry for the last eighteen years in various positions, including as a residential contractor.

“One of the things I love most about my job is the actual process of building a house. But, it can also be daunting because there are so many moving parts. I love a challenge!”

Don’s competitive streak probably explains his love of sports! “I have always enjoyed participating and watching sports. Now I play a lot of tennis… mostly mixed doubles with my wife.” In fact, attending a tennis grand slam event at Wimbledon or the U.S. Open is on Don’s bucket list. As is visiting Scotland. (Don, see if you can track down Andy Murray for a match when you’re in Scotland!)

What’s Don’t greatest personal achievement? “I have been married to my wonderful wife, Judy, for 41 years. We have four children, three of them married, and we have six grandchildren. God has blessed me beyond measure with the people in my life!”


We’re so proud to have Don on the team! His experience and positive attitude help to make us a stronger family every day.  For more information on finding your new home – and having the opportunity to meet Don – call our Online Sales Counselor, Melissa Matthews, Providence Realty, LLC at 904-447-0724. We can’t wait to help you find your new dream home!

Providence Homes Employee Spotlight: Meet William

Categories: Providence News | Posted: October 23, 2018

At Providence Homes, our team is inspired by our pledge to make a difference. Every day, we work hard to provide our customers not only with beautiful, affordable homes, but with the kind of service that we would want for ourselves. Each one of our team members is a valuable part of what makes us different!

This week, we’re excited to introduce William Kelly, an employee who wears a variety of hats – and is indispensable! As our Sales and Marketing Coordinator, William is everywhere – from the main office to our model homes. He’s also our de facto in-house tech guy. When our systems and devices are acting up, William’s the one we call! “I like that I get to do so many different things within the company,” he says. “I’m always doing something interesting!”

When it comes to being part of the Providence team, William couldn’t be happier. “It makes me excited that we build a good-quality product. I like how all of the small – and not so small – improvements we make to standard homes combine into something that I can be proud of.”

William came to Providence Homes straight from the University of Florida. “I traveled a bit after college. But seeing all 50 states is on my bucket list. I have quite a few checked off already, but it would be fun to see them all.” In addition to traveling, he also enjoys watching movies. “I have a large collection.”Providence Homes William Employee

Family is important to William. In fact, his greatest personal achievement is adopting his daughter, formerly his stepdaughter. “I grew up on 23 acres, and my parents had a huge assortment of animals, including birds, horses, sheep and a cow. My dad is a veterinarian, so most of them were rescues.”


We’re so proud to have William on the team! His work ethic and values help to make us a stronger family every day.  For more information on finding your new home – and having the opportunity to meet William – call our Online Sales Counselor, Melissa Matthews, Providence Realty, LLC at 904-447-0724.
