Marika Donovan, NCIDQ, LEED AP



Marika Donovan has been involved in the construction, design, and development industry for over 20 years. In 2014, she decided to add real estate into the mix and has been loving every minute of it. She began her journey working for a commercial developer in Denver. For the following 8 years, she worked as a designer for two award-winning commercial/hospitality architectural firms in both Las Vegas and San Diego. In 2008, she began her own design studio in La Jolla and while keeping her foot in the door of the hospitality and commercial design industry, she also found a new love in residential design.

She and her husband Jesse welcomed their first child in 2012. With the eagerness of raising her daughter in a wonderful, small town with lots of family and friends, they chose her husband’s hometown of Ashland. With a distinctive vision and a passion for each unique, residential property she visits, she decided to follow along the next step in her journey at Ashland Homes.

As a published, licensed interior designer and LEED accredited building professional through the US Green Building Council (USGBC), Marika brings a vast range of knowledge with her to Ashland Homes. She has been an active member of the Commercial Real Estate Executive Women (CREW) organization as well as ASID and IIDA. She has been an active member of the Junior League of San Diego as well as donated hours of professional services to help raise money for many deserving charities. Since moving to Southern Oregon, she has been on the board of both The Junior League of Jackson County and the Ashland Soccer Club. If you’re looking for someone to help search for your next home or investment property, or need assistance listing your existing property, Marika will use her excitement, knowledge, and care to work diligently to meet all of your needs and expectations as she brings many professional view-points to the buying process.

If you don’t see her in the office, you’ll find her volunteering in the community, hiking and adventuring with her husband, daughters, and Bernedoodle, enjoying her daughters’ sporting events, or parading around the sweet town of Ashland at the local eateries and farmer’s markets.

Note from Marika:

I love all things real estate and am very passionate about what I do. If you are thinking about buying, selling, or are interested in knowing the value of your home or what the current market conditions are, I’d love the opportunity to meet with you. I hope to have the honor of representing you in your next real estate transaction.
