We recently completed building our dream home with JK&S. This being our 4th build, I knew exactly what I was looking for in a builder. Not only did they check every one of my boxes but they exceeded my expectations in every way.
It was a pleasure to work with John, Dustin and Dan. All worked tirelessly to ensure we were happy every step of the way. Even during a pandemic, we completed on time and stayed on budget due to Kraemer’s outstanding organizational skills and vast resources.
Their experience and reputation made what can be a stressful process an enjoyable experience. Their crew guided me through every step to ensure I was well informed before making major decisions and selections. The entire Kraemer team are masters of many trades, including keeping neighborhoods happy during construction and reassuring clients during difficult decision making.
There is no question that the subs which they thoughtfully select are top notch and happy to be working on Kraemer projects, which speaks volumes for the integrity of a builder. Kraemer takes pride in every aspect of their projects and it’s reassuring to trust that they never cut corners.
I especially appreciated their transparency throughout the entire process. I never once felt like I needed to micro-manage monthly numbers and I am not a person who gains trust easily.
I would build again with JK&S in a minute and I would most definitely recommend them to everyone I know. I will miss seeing these guys on a regular basis!

Throughout the build process, they displayed a refreshing commitment to meticulous craftsmanship and exacting quality that left us thrilled with our investment. They worked closely with our architect and designer to ensure every detail was executed flawlessly, and their diligent efforts resulted in a wonderful home we will enjoy for decades.
John Kraemer & Sons will always be our builder and has earned our highest recommendation.
Scott & Jill W. from Orono, MN
The communication, transparency and trust from step one was not only professional but made us know we were in good hands. The relationships the Kraemers have with architects, designers and subs helped make every stage of our project run smoothly. It was evident the level of respect and professionalism between everyone involved had a huge part in our renovation being done on budget and on time. It truly was a first-class experience.
Having seen the Kraemer houses on tour for many years the quality and craftsmanship was evident, however I wish we had a way of describing the level of elevated detail and the wow factor they put into our home. Lastly, we are beyond happy to be the first couple to finish a home renovation without fighting throughout the process. Thank you John, Jeff, Dustin and our amazing job supervisor Matt for keeping this family together. We are grateful to have had our experience with the Kraemer team and look forward to having our relationship with them all for a very long time…like forever and ever.
Drew & Hali from Edina, MN
~What a fun project! I would build house after house with Kraemer if I could. From the very first meeting we knew we were in good hands. We were surrounded by a knowledgeable team the entire time. No detail was overlooked. We looked forward to our weekly meetings and walk-throughs which made the build smooth and uncomplicated. The thousands of decisions were made easy by the support of the team. It was just a great experience and I hope to do it again someday!

Mark F. from Wayzata, MN
John Kraemer & Sons completed a renovation of our entire main floor. From our initial meeting to our final walk through, we were treated to courteous, skilled professionals. We stayed very near to budget and our project was completed in three months, on the early end of the 3-4 month estimated timeline.
We couldn’t be more pleased. We will be hiring this company again for any future projects.
John & Candace R. from Medina, MN
Working with everyone at John Kraemer and Sons was a wonderful experience. Their project managers were there on a daily basis, expertly managing the sub-contractors and making sure everything was done to our satisfaction. The project was done on time, and we are thrilled with it! I recommend John Kraemer and sons to anyone doing a home remodeling project.
Gary & Missy G. from Eden Prairie, MN
It was an absolute pleasure building my dream house with John Kraemer and Sons. I had not built before and thus had little idea what to expect. Friends who had built with other builders had said ‘plan for it to be over-budget and behind schedule’. Overall the process was much easier and far more enjoyable than I had anticipated, and most importantly, I am absolutely thrilled with the end result.
I love coming home and walking around my house enjoying every room and every detail inside and out. I was grateful to the JKS team for making suggestions when I did not know what was current. The craftsmanship is beautiful and even friends who are architects or have built luxury homes in other parts of the world are impressed by the level of detail.
During the build process, I found the team at JKS to be extremely responsive to my requests and able to accommodate my schedule and needs – even when I changed my mind about something, such as adding an extra fireplace and a rock climbing wall. Even now, nearly 2 years after I have moved in, I can still reach them day or night. I am not the type of person to give praise easily – on the contrary I consider myself extremely objective, but I honestly can say that building with JKS was an absolute pleasure and I would do it again in a heartbeat. They are truly masters and professionals!

John Kraemer & Sons excelled with their communication, job site supervision, quality craftsmen & trusted sub-contractors. During the 3 years designing and building our home, we learned a lot. Most importantly, we learned that having a great team building your house is invaluable. John Kraemer & Sons is the builder you want on your team. We can’t thank them enough for making our dream home a reality!
Charlie & Clare K. from Buffalo, MN
Their service, integrity and responsiveness was outstanding and the billing and budget management was fair and timely. They have more than earned our highest recommendation.
Jay & Kari C. from Hopkins, MN
We recently completed a total renovation on our home and have never worked with a finer team of professionals than John Kraemer & Sons. To a person, they define a new level of customer service and customer satisfaction that puts them in a league of their own. They provided timely updates, met tight deadlines and were extremely prompt and responsive to any questions we had.
We especially appreciated their sense of partnership when working with us, our designer and with all the sub-contractors. Our home is stunning, the craftsmanship is of the utmost quality and most importantly, we worked with wonderful individuals who truly cared as much about how they worked with us as they did about the quality of the work they provided.
You couldn’t go wrong working with them and I would highly recommend them for any renovation, remodel or build from scratch. It’s a great group of professionals!
Lee & Karen N. from Minnetonka, MN
We hired John Kraemer & Sons for a remodeling project at our home last year. We had such a great experience and we respect their firm so much that we have recently hired them to build a new home for us. From the first day we talked with them about the project, they were straightforward and professional. They listened to us and communicated seamlessly with our architect.
Kraemer clearly laid out the project scope, budget and timeline of the project. During the remodel, our site supervisor, Dan, made the project so easy! He kept us well informed and the project was completed on time and on budget. We love the work they did to our current home and best of all, the project was actually fun! I would highly recommend John Kraemer & Sons.

John Kraemer and Sons is First Choice when choosing a builder. They use a complete team and take ownership of the entire building process. Issues or concerns during and after the project is over are appreciated and responded to which is something of great importance!
Greg & Kathy D. from Deephaven, MN
Just completed building our home with John Kraemer & Sons. From the beginning of the process to the very end the amount of time, professionalism, expertise, organization and communication was exceptional.
Five stars is truly not enough. We could not be happier with the choice we made having this builder and their incredible staff build our dream home.
Ken & Rosanne E. from Edina, MN
We were able to start our build process thousands of miles away as we were going through a cross-country move with a toddler and one on the way. The team was warm, available, organized and even-keeled; all descriptors that were very much appreciated and needed during the stress of a large-life transition.
During the build process, the team was thoughtful and solution-oriented in getting us the end product we were dreaming of, and more. They allowed us to be as involved as we preferred or could be, which varied by the week. We grew to have, and of course still maintain, an innate trust of the team’s judgment and execution. Working with the JKS team gave us peace of mind as we went through the largest monetary and future life investment we’d ever been a part of: building our dream home.
I’ve said this before and I will say it again, if I could build a house with the JKS team every year, I would do it in a heartbeat. The JKS team was our unwavering advocate throughout the entire build process, and I’m so glad that I can now be theirs.
Pete & Alissa from Edina, MN
Jeff Kraemer and Steve Weckwerth led each of the projects and I cannot say enough about these gentlemen. Their commitment, dedication and workmanship far exceeded our expectations. They treated every project as if they were doing it in their own homes. They were always available for questions or quick fixes and extremely attentive to every detail. If another project/build is ever in our future, they will be the first and only call we make.
I promise you will not be disappointed if you choose John Kraemer & Sons.
Tony & Melissa C. from Shorewood, MN
I have had the pleasure of working with John Kraemer and Sons on both a professional and personal level over the years, and I have only the very best things to say about this team!
The JK&S crew managed the complete remodel of my 95-year-old home with a grace and ease that comes rarely in any industry. Despite the extensive nature of my home’s remodel, the resulting ‘new’ home blends seamlessly with the original. JK&S approached every situation with a positive, can-do attitude that made me feel confident in the outcome, even when I wasn’t sure how a problem might be resolved. Gary & Jeff were creators and problem solvers the whole way through – if we could draw it or imagine it, they could build it.
The experience and talent that this 3 generation firm has in building and remodeling homes was such an incredible asset throughout the project. Even the unexpected and unusual challenges that arose during my period home’s remodel were things they had seen and dealt with before. JK&S is a firm of very high integrity. They will never let you down, and I felt in good hands throughout every step of the process.
Thank you, thank you for my beautiful home!
Steve & Martha O. from Minneapolis, MN
They are always working when expected to, friendly and great to build a home with. Kraemers have won many top building awards and they certainly live up to their reputation as outstanding builders in all categories. The entire Kraemer staff is professional, extremely helpful, kind and competent, starting with the day I interviewed the builders.
They have made the process quite problem free. I have been extremely pleased with the entire planning and building process which has moved forward as promised.

Matt & Stacy B. from Edina, MN
You all have thought of everything and we will enjoy it thoroughly for years to come. Thank you all so much!
Mitch & Laurie D. from Tonka Bay, MN
This is the most professional company/contractor I have ever hired. Each person from this company who stepped foot inside my house was a perfect gem! They were always, punctual, courteous, respectful of my home and easy to work with on all types of jobs (large and small). Good management shows in professional employees and this company has both.
Ron & Susan S. from St. Paul, MN
We wouldn’t consider using a builder other than JK&S. Their quality and attention to detail is unsurpassed, they are creative and good at problem solving. They listen, stand behind their work and everyone from the top on down is accessible, friendly and pleasant to work with. We give JK&S our highest recommendation.
Brian & Karen H. from Eden Prairie, MN
They also truly understood how to help a family live through the challenges that a renovation can present and took great pains to minimize the disruption in our lives. They were on budget, on time and exceptional to work with. We could not recommend them strongly enough.
Jill S. and Beth F. from Minneapolis, MN
After working with them, we now understand why they win so many home builder awards. Thank you JK & Sons!
Chuck & Shannon R. from Stillwater, MN
Teaming together just felt right from the very beginning. John Kraemer and Sons are warm, values-based, and expert in all they do. This was the largest renovation we had ever taken on as a family. JKS led the way, providing excellence at every step. Planning was thorough, with absolute clarity on required decisions. Throughout the process JKS showed flexibility as we adjusted our plans. Our project supervisor was particularly stellar, demanding excellence from his direct team and subcontractors, paying attention to every detail, and working tirelessly on our behalf.
When a few issues arose during our renovation, JKS stepped up and made sure promises were kept, and resolution only enhanced trust and partnership. Everyone pitched in to complete our renovation when a personal tragedy struck, doubling down and collaborating with our designer.
We are grateful to JKS every day as we thoroughly enjoy our renovated home. There is simply no one else we want to build our homes in the future.
