John Kraemer & Sons: Who We Are
A Family Tradition in Home Building
As the state’s only Four-Time Builder of the Year, John Kraemer & Sons has been building luxury homes and remodeling fine residences since 1978.
Founded by current President Gary Kraemer and his late father John, our firm focuses on luxury residential projects of all shapes, sizes, and styles. Depending on the year, our workload is typically 50% remodeling and 50% new construction.
We specialize in everything from large estate home construction, to empty-nest homes, to lake cabins, all the way to simple mud room remodels. With Gary’s two sons John and Jeff in the business, the firm is now a third-generation company.
Our staff is committed to making every building or renovation project exceptional, from the moment we meet until long after we hand over the keys.
The Kraemers (John, Gary and Jeff) are personally involved in every project. We listen closely to each client and build a home that clearly reflects their lifestyle and personality.
John Kraemer & Sons is unique in the fact that we employ all our own job superintendents, project managers, and finish carpenters. Each client is assigned a job superintendent who will remain on-site each day until their home is completed. This personal relationship is the foundation of each John Kraemer & Sons project, and sets us apart from most builders whose superintendents manage multiple projects at a time. Since our finish carpenters are all on staff, we have the horsepower to get projects completed for our clients on time, on budget, and with the highest quality imaginable.
Each one of our projects is managed on a 100% open book basis, where every bid, invoice, and receipt is available for client review at any time. We believe that full transparency is the best policy.
While based in Edina, Minnesota, we are uniquely positioned and willing to take on projects throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, and beyond. We invite you to tour past projects we’ve completed, as well as new homes and renovations we currently have in progress. We also have an extensive list of loyal clients and customer testimonials we’d be happy to share with you. Meet Our Staff
“A true sign of a solid reputation and financial stability is the fact that our builder license #BC001408 is one of the lowest in the industry today. In 38 years we have never gone out of business, reorganized, changed names, or changed owners. Our clients know that we will be around well into the future to warranty their homes and stand behind our work.”
