Nathan Fair | Managing Partner, Sales Manager
Nathan is a Managing Partner at Jonathan Homes overseeing business development and sales. Nathan has worked in real estate for more than 10 years and land development for eight years. Before starting Jonathan Homes with JD Hanson, he also served as an agent for a former St. Paul Saints/Minnesota Twins player, which explains his preference for vacationing in Florida. When Nathan isn’t discovering that next perfect building site, he enjoys a variety of activities such as spending time with family at the lake, watching baseball, playing golf, downhill skiing and playing poker. Nathan, his lovely wife, Marisa, son Ethan and daughter Avery, and their Biewer, Charley, live in Brooklyn Park.
JD Hanson | Managing Partner
As a fourth generation home builder, JD grew up exploring construction sites from the moment he learned to walk. He started his career in landscaping at age 12 and by 25 he had become lead supervisor for Hanson Builders in charge of all field operations. To date, JD has overseen the completion of more than 300 custom-built homes and many remodel projects. JD’s free time is spent relaxing with family at the cabin, hunting, snowmobiling and boating. It’s no surprise that his favorite vacation was an Alaskan fishing trip with his grandpa, dad and brother. JD, his wonderful wife, Jamila, and son Hunter live in Blaine.

Matt is our operations and project manager. With a degree in both civil engineering and architecture from the University of Minnesota, his skill for great attention to detail is an asset to many areas of our business and most importantly to our clients.

As a real estate agent with 12 years experience selling new construction homes, Jonathan Homes has exceeded my expectations for a home builder. The JH team took care of my client as if they were their own. The customer service was outstanding! The quality of the home and custom features make the process easy for everyone involved.
Working with Jonathan Homes has been a real pleasure. They have new floorplans that appeal to today's homeowners' lifestyles without needing expensive upgrades because the quality of materials and craftsmanship is high-end. Also, the process went so smoothly, which is not what I've experienced with some other builders. Jonathan Homes has been the best experience so far with the different builders I've worked with. Highly recommend!
As a real estate agent with over 10 years' experience, and numerous new construction sales, I found my last sale with Jonathan Homes was by far the easiest and problem free transaction that I've ever had. My buyers were in Mexico during the entire home construction and the JH team did an outstanding job handling the long distance communication. My buyers were thrilled with their fantastic new home. Jonathan Homes will be the first builder I recommend to my clients.
Duane Bauermeister GRI
As a realtor, who works with existing homes and new construction, I have been involved in multiple new construction custom home projects. I have knowledge, experience and an instinct for the building experience. From the first contact it seemed Jonathan Homes was too good to be true. I was happy to find that they just do have a standard above many! Their process is streamlined, making my job as easy as can be. They are a team of professionals who respect the customers, and have a standard of excellence in every area from customer service to perfection in home building standards. I look forward to working with them again and would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan Homes to my clients looking to build a new home.
