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.
