Things we've learned in 35 years

And they love their smart phones. That’s why all of our single family homes are smart homes, so you can control your locks, lights and more with a simple swipe.

Get automated with the Jayman Connected Home System.

By listening to homebuyers and introducing innovative designs and products, Jayman revolutionized the art and science of homebuilding.

And what did you tell us?

Double ensuites are just another of the many ways Jayman makes our homeowner’s lives easier through thoughtful home design.

When Jayman introduced the concept of a “bonus room,” everybody thought we’d lost our minds. But a few years later, the bonus room was on every homebuyers must-have list. Jayman’s always been an innovator—and we don’t let a few weird looks along the way stop us.

In 2002, Jayman created its Design Centre specifically to take the stress and hassle out of the process and make buying a home as fun as it should be.

Now, it’s your one-stop-shop for interior selections.

We realized long ago that sustainability is fundamental to our future. Jayman spearheaded the introduction of BUILT GREEN® in Alberta and registered the first BUILT GREEN® home over a decade ago. Today, we include options in every home to save money, improve health and conserve resources.

Walk the talk with our commitment to sustainability.

And we’re not just talking about building in communities with good amenities and green space. Those things are great, but it’s really about the way we do business, how we manage our environmental impact, how we treat our employees and how we support community initiatives that aim to solve social problems in the communities in which we work and live.

Learn more about our Corporate Social Responsibility.

And we want you to be excited about your Jayman purchase! So in 1995, we introduced Jayman Realty. A dedicated team of realtors who work hard to sell your house for the best price, so you can focus on building your new one.

Meet the Jayman Realty team.

Jayman Financial was founded in 2000 to help walk people through the process of home buying and the responsibilities of home ownership—one step at a time.

Meet our team of award winning brokers.

Time and time again, people asked how to achieve the “Jayman look”. So we created our Home Staging service to bring the peerless style and originality of our renowned showhomes to any home, so every homeowner can achieve the Jayman look.

Does your home need a refresh?

We’re proud of our accomplishments. Heck, who doesn’t like to come in first place? But quality, service and customer satisfaction must always come before the accolades. Because plaques and trophies never pay the bills.
As it happens, our commitment to our customers have won us some awards too.

People don’t really want to negotiate on the biggest investment of their life, they just want the best possible value. So at Jayman, we give our best price first. Simple as that. No run-around, no playing hardball and no stress.

Learning is continual, just like this list. Check back later for more lessons we've learned.
