Co-Founder and Co-Owner
Like Dwight, Bryan was raised in a rural setting, one that would in later years be eclipsed by the suburbs of nearby Minneapolis. In fact, the property where Bryan grew up was eventually purchased by the musician Prince to incorporate into his urban “compound.”
The son of a talented interior designer, Bryan spent time traveling through Europe before attending Pomona College in California where he majored in Philosophy. Bryan also met his wife in California, and the couple eventually moved back to Minneapolis where they took a woodworking course together. When the four-week session was over, Bryan was hooked. The satisfaction of creating things of lasting quality was both meaningful and addictive.
While in Minnesota, Bryan earned a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, but the couple grew tired of the harsh winters and soon relocated to Colorado. Not long after, Bryan’s realtor gave him the tip that a man was looking for help building a house. Bryan and his wife had spent time buying and fixing up old houses in Minnesota, so he gave the guy a call.
That guy was Dwight Sailer, and Bryan and Dwight went on to build the entire house together. The job required an hour commute each way, which was the perfect opportunity to talk about starting a business partnership. Both men dreamed of building homes that people would love.
Bryan has many strengths, but he excels at defining and refining HighCraft processes to streamline the remodeling experience. With an MBA tucked in his tool belt, Bryan is adept at delivering no-surprise contracts, establishing superior customer service practices, and ensuring that HighCraft sets an example for the industry in business integrity. His behind-the-scenes leadership has allowed HighCraft Builders to grow without sacrificing quality, and he makes sure that every client has an exceptional experience.
Bryan’s favorite thing to hear from a client? “We’ve remodeled before and it’s always been a challenge. The people, and the way HighCraft Builders does things, just make the experience so much better.”
