When you’re ready to build your dream home or remodel an existing one, you want to hire a company you can trust that combines the highest levels of quality, craftsmanship, and complete transparency. Regarding luxury home building and renovation, there’s only one answer: John Kraemer & Sons. As Minnesota’s only Four-Time Builder of the Year, they have been building luxury homes and remodeling since 1978. A third-generation company founded by its current President, Gary Kraemer, and his late father, John, they specialize in everything from large estate home construction to empty-nest homes, lake cabins, and major renovations of all shapes, sizes, and styles. 

For these dreams to come to fruition, along with all the success they have had in their journey as a time-honored institution, the Kraemers (John, Gary, and Jeff) apply a hands-on approach and are involved in every project as they work hard to meet their goal of making homebuilding fun and exciting rather than stressful. Along with the eyes (and hands) of the Kraemers, their best-in-class project management process includes assigning a job superintendent, employed by them, who will be on-site each day until their home is completed. This personal relationship between the company and client ensures projects are completed on time, on budget, and are of exceptionally high quality.

Another unique aspect of working with John Kraemer & Sons is that every project is managed on a 100% open-book basis, which allows full transparency in all areas of billing, project costs, subcontractor fees, etc., with every bid, invoice, and receipt available for client review at any time. By managing all aspects of the building process, you can rest easy knowing you have a team behind you, working diligently to ensure your project stays on time and within budget.
