Our Story
Over 40 years ago, Keith was a carpenter who decided to start building houses.  Keith came from a construction family, and as a kid in the Bay Area he was surrounded by “the biz”.  Upon becoming a general contractor and establishing his first home building company – Christopherson Homes.  Keith’s philosophy has always been to build it right, and take care of your people, and because of that, his business started to take off.  Just a few years later, Brenda decided to leave her career in travel and they became a two-person team, running their burgeoning business.  Brenda began to take an active hand in design and architecture, and eventually led the sales and marketing initiatives of all new Christopherson communities.  Fast forward a few decades and now we have Christopherson Builders, formed with Brenda & Keith’s daughter and our President, Amy Christopherson-Bolten.
