Founder and owner
With an early career in construction, Tom saw a need for a company that gave clients the freedom to design their homes with any option that's within their vision and budget -- not from a template of choices. So, 14 years ago, he founded Personal Pride Construction, which quickly became the name that Minnesota homeowners trust to produce personal, thoughtfully crafted spaces.
Having the liberty to truly make a house a home is what he loves most about his work ... it's a precedent that he has set for the team. And it's that fun, creative, dedicated team -- as well as meeting inspiring clients -- that also excites him. He lives in his own Personal Pride-crafted home with his wife, Brittany, and three kids (with one on the way!). It's the perfect spot to do what they love most: entertain friends and family, and play all day by the water.
For over 15 years, Brittany has made it her design goal to make homes more meaningful and purposeful. She works with both Personal Pride's clients and its team to ensure that residents get exactly what they need and want. She got her start naturally, with friends' frequent requests for the help of her sharp eye and style skills, and it's since become a full-time devotion. Personal Pride's team- and client-oriented culture makes her job fun. Spending time on the lake with her three kiddos and her husband, Tom, is what she loves to do when she's off-duty.
