Our Foundation

Ayres has steadily advanced since 1905 to become a strong presence in California dedicated to providing an unparalleled product and exceptional service. This dedication to excellence builds on a proud history and demonstrates a commitment by the Ayres family and team members to provide a stellar client experience.

As the Ayres family looks toward the future of the Ayres brand, they remain committed to those things that have made them a success while still challenging the status quo and exploring ways to keep the company viable and dynamic. A bedrock of character and strongly held principles ensures the continued success of the Ayres Organization.

A Foundation of Family Values

The integrity and innovation that began with the development of the Los Angeles area by Frank Ayres and his son, Don Ayres Sr., in the early-mid 1900’s remains with Ayres today, setting them apart from other builders. The Ayres brand is built on a foundation of experience, efficiency, and proven results, while being a supportive organization that reflects a culture of caring for our clients and team members. As the business has grown and changed, adherence to a strong set of core values has been essential for a thriving company culture.

1905

In California, climate and oranges were the main attractions. A $2 train ride brought visitors by the thousands to the Golden State. Many stayed. Among them was Frank H. Ayres, who had come from Ohio with his wife and young son Donald to explore land development opportunities.

1920

In the roaring 20’s movie making had become a full-fledged industry. Demands for lots and homes rose sharply. In response, Frank Ayres formed Frank H. Ayres & Son with Don Ayres Sr. The foresight of this father and son team would, in a matter of years, become the foundation of entire communities in the Santa Monica and Westchester areas of Los Angeles County.

1957

In 1957, Don Ayres, Jr. joined the firm, launching homebuilding interests by developing subdivision communities. In the coming decade, the Ayres brand would become a recognized name, creating distinctive homes in well-planned areas stretching from the San Fernando Valley to San Diego.

1984

Don Jr. developed the concept of a European boutique hotel after a trip to Europe with his daughter in the early 80s, Ayres has continually adapted to the ever-changing needs of the marketplace without losing sight of the importance of friendly service, cleanliness, and value in the Ayres brand of hotels.

NOW

Today, the Ayres family tradition of quality and value is stronger than ever. It ensures that every project is expertly designed and executed with excellence and meticulous attention to every detail.
