Happy Thanksgiving! 
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season.


We're pleased to announce an exciting change that we made with our Brokerage as of October 1, 2015.   Our Brokerage name has changed and we are no longer associated with Windermere Real Estate.  Our new name is Bennion Deville Homes. This is only a name change!  The market statistics, existing offices, staff, managing brokers and owners are all the same. The new name and independence allows us to evolve our image with a fresh, modern look and boutique feel that was not available through the previous affiliation.

Dave and I are still operating as the Travoy Group, under the Bennion Deville Homes Brokerage.  Our website address is still the same,  Our Travoy Group email addresses are still the same,, and  In addition, we each have Bennion Deville Homes email addresses:

Although our Brokerage name has changed, our commitment to you, our clients, has not changed.  Your continued business remains paramount to us!
