Dean started this all with his dad, Ken, building and remodeling homes in Anoka back in 1979. Today, with over thirty years of experience, Dean has fashioned Hanson Builders into a company of excellence. Dean knows people want more than a gorgeous home; they want a home-building company with a solid reputation for excellent quality and integrity. They want a company that has stood the test of time and has never changed their name to evade responsibility. At HBI, we stand behind our homes because we take pride in what we build. Dean enjoys traveling, serving with Homes of Hope and Children’s Hope Chest and spending time with his five kids, daughter in-law, son in-law, and five grandchildren.
JD was always a natural when it came to building things. He worked with both his dad and grandpa (Ken) from the time he was old enough to carry a hammer. Even though he is a relatively young man, JD possesses over 16 years of actual building experience. As our V. P. of Operations JD keeps a close eye on every job being built by Hanson Builders. Most every subcontractor knows JD very well and he is held in high regard by each one. In his spare time he is snowmobiling, hunting, or lifting his Jeep a little higher. JD lives in Blaine with his wife and son Hunter.
