About DeNova Homes

About DeNova Homes

For 30 years, DeNova Homes has earned a reputation as one of the most respected homebuilders in California. Our approach is simple—as a private, family-owned builder, we address each community individually, incorporate the unique characteristics of the surrounding area and commit to build only the very best. These guiding principles have been recognized numerous times by the Building Industry Association through various awards, including the prestigious Builder of the Year award. Perhaps most rewarding of all though are the hundreds of satisfied homeowners who have confirmed DeNova Homes’ standard of quality, lifestyle, and value.

While we focus on innovative design and superior craftsmanship, our primary commitment is to the lifestyle our homeowners enjoy when they move into a DeNova home. Building community is what we do, whether it is creating the ultimate environment for your dream lifestyle, building homeless shelters with HomeAid Northern California, or supporting the American Red Cross, Volunteers of America, the American Cancer Society, and many other local organizations. DeNova Homes is there for the neighborhoods in which we build. It is our defining goal. It is what makes us proud. It’s what creates  Home.

Our Team

Enthusiasm and dedication—that’s what drives our management team and staff to provide exceptional leadership and even better results, ensuring DeNova Homes fulfills its long-standing commitment to build better communities.

DeNova Homes Testimonial

DeNova Homes treats the purchaser as a top priority. Their attention to detail is excellent. They over deliver on what they promise. Moving around in the military I have bought and lived in many homes. This was my best experience by far.

DeNova has a team of professionals that have exceeded my expectations in making my home buying experience easy and stress free. From the sales team, to the preferred lenders and the building supervisors, I have had only positive experiences. My questions and concerns were answered in a timely manner, documents were distributed seamlessly, and everyone I encountered was absolutely amazing. Thank you all for making this as stress free as possible.

DeNova Homes deserve the "Award Winning builder" title. Not only are their homes beautiful and luxurious but they are built with the thought of what matters to the homeowner, including the exquisite details.

- Marites and Laureano, Oakley CA

DeNova Homes Testimonial

DeNova Homes is a fantastic place to purchase your new home. Our experience was amazing with buying our first home everyone from the sales staff to the loan staff was friendly and helpful along the way. The entire process could not have been any better.

- Mallory and Chris, Lathrop CA

DeNova Homes Testimonial

Everyone throughout the entire home buying process was amazing. Being first time home buyers we were very overwhelmed but everyone from DeNova and the mortgage company explained every step in an easy to understand way.

- Kody and Alma, Lathrop CA

DeNova Homes Testimonial

DeNova Homes is a class act. Building nice homes at a fairly rapid pace is not for sissies. Our home was actually a spec home they built, so we were not so much expecting it be completed to our satisfaction. Rather, when we walked in and saw the architecture, quality of products used, fit and finish, we knew we had found our next, and likely our final home. The warranty, customer service, and concern for customer satisfaction is second to none. Bravo, De Nova.

- Pat and Julie, Gilroy CA

DeNova Homes Testimonial

My DeNova home is absolutely beautiful! Each day that I wake up in my new home, I feel like it is a dream. The DeNova family cared about us from day one, and because of that we were able to put our home up for sale while this home was being built, and gave us the opportunity to experience this dream. We have bought and lived in many homes throughout our life, however, this experience and home will go down as one the biggest highlights in our life journey. Thank you DeNova for being a part of this chapter of our life!

- Diego and Doreen, Gilroy CA

- Pernell and Tracy, Patterson CA

DeNova Homes Testimonial

We love that there were so many options to choose from! We adore the library in our home. We previously owned a home from a very large national builder and the quality was poor. Our DeNova home is far superior in quality and we would definitely purchase again from DeNova.

- Mike and Marysue, Gilroy

Fantastic staff and a wonderful 1st time home buyer experience! Sales Representative Kaylah was friendly and knowledgeable, She followed up promptly for any of my questions, be they important or not. She gave me timely updates about the progress of construction phases and anticipated closing dates. The buyer option requests we did have were professionally managed and well delivered. We are excited about the amazing home we have moved into.

DeNova Homes Testimonial

Now that we have been in our home for a while I wanted to follow up regarding the work of the DeNova service team. I am a licensed General Contractor and I have a very trained/experienced eye. I am a perfectionist and have been very pleased with the work completed in our home. The service team has been on time, clean, professional and overall did outstanding work. I am truly impressed with DeNova's overall quality and professionalism and for being so "on top" of things. It is understandable that things may need attention during the warranty period and I'm very familiar with the business of building. It's how you handle the things that need attention that is truly above the rest.

- Matt, Gilroy

DeNova made everything so easy about buying a house! From the contract to the final walk-through the whole process was easy...and fun! We love all of the energy efficient and safety features in our new home!

- Joshua and Maureen, Petaluma

DeNova Homes Testimonial

Our experience purchasing a DeNova Home couldn't have been better. Our expectations were exceeded during every step of the process and we were floored with how delightful everyone that we came into contact with.


As first-time home buyers we were overwhelmed with where to start in the buying process. Our Sales Manager was more than happy to walk us through the process and was extremely accommodating, answering any questions we had.

We used DeNova's preferred lender, which made the borrowing process seamless. When it was time to pick out our home's interior options, the Design Center bent over backwards to give us exactly what we were looking for.

And when it was time for our walk-through, DeNova's team was so helpful in explaining every feature of our home, how to best care for them, and all of the warranties that cover it. It is such a relief to know that your new home is covered!

As a young family, we are extremely happy with our new home and the community we live in. I would recommend DeNova Homes to anyone looking for an easy purchasing experience and a beautiful new home.

- Kaity & Roberto, Petaluma

DeNova Homes Testimonial

We would definitely recommend DeNova Homes.

Yellow Roof Foundation is a non-profit public charity. Founded in 2018 by Dave and Lori Sanson, owners of Concord based DeNova Homes, Inc., the Yellow Roof Foundation is working to build affordable housing opportunities for families and individuals at risk for homelessness.

Learn More About Our Foundation


At Yellow Roof Foundation, we believe in building brighter futures and better tomorrows. And we believe this all begins at home.

For some families and individuals, their American dream isn't about owning a home. Their dream is just having a place to call home. We believe that everyone deserves a place to call homes; a place that is a shelter from the storms of life where they can find a fresh start and hope for a brighter future. 

We believe we can help families and individuals achieve their aspirations for a better tomorrow by providing affordable housing opportunities in the communities where they live and work. We believe they deserve an opportunity to start over, surrounded by a community that not only wants them to succeed, but is also willing to lend them hope and extend a helping hand. 

We know that having a place to call home is just the beginning. Families also need valuable life skills to help turn transitional housing into transformational living. That's why we partner with service professionals and volunteers to provide coaching to help individuals and families develop additional life skills in financial planning, interview training and more.

DeNova Homes is helping to build a better community.
