Meet our President – Dean Nelson

Dean Nelson is the President of Homes by Tradition.  As a Fergus Falls, MN native and Marine, he brings his dedication and passion into the process of each home we build.  Bringing his expertise of design and new home construction, Dean enjoys working face-to-face with customers in every step of the design-build process.  We took the liberty of asking a few more questions to get to know him better:


How would you describe yourself in ONE WORD? Why?

– RESOURCEFUL…I’m always adapting and finding new ways to do things.

Finish this sentence – The best part about my job is…

– The best part about my job is working with customers to create and fulfill their vision of a new home.

What is your advice for customers who are looking to build custom?

– My advice would be to communicate more detail and clarification of expectations up front.  This makes everything clean and more fun during the process of building.

If you weren’t working, what would you be doing?

– If I wasn’t working, I would be traveling and spending time with family.

Upcoming opportunities to meet Dean are this Saturday, March 8th and Saturday the 22nd!  Be sure to stop at our custom Parade of Homes Entry #209 in Lakeville.  There will be treats and a drawing for a $500 Delta Gift Card.  Do not miss your chance to get all questions answered!
