Nate is the proud Co-Owner of Alair Bow Valley and a Third Generation home builder. Nate built a foundation of skills beginning at a young age on his father's job sites in the BC interior and the Bow Valley. In his early 20s, he and his brother started a framing and renovation company (and moved to Central Alberta) and continued the legacy of their forefathers. Nate joined Alair in 2016 and has not looked back, building on his strengths with the team at Alair Homes!

The greatest joy for Nate is creating lasting relationships with clients and the many amazing industry partners Alair has. Without whom, our numerous award winning projects and raving reviews would not be a possibility. As an owner, Nate emphasizes the goal of consistent improvement of the company, industry and himself.

Away from the job site, you will find Nate spending time with his wife, Darby and their 3 kids. There is always a project of some sort on the go! To recharge, they pack the family up for a hike or picnic in the mountains, play board games around the dining table, or settle down for a family movie night and popcorn.

What's Your Favourite Thing About Working with Alair?
My favourite thing about working with the Alair team is being able to listen to everyone's ideas, then motivating a diversely talented team to make our idea a creation that not only brings joy to us the builders, but to our clients who have trusted us with their investment. It can be challenging at times but overall a fantastic and fulfilling experience.
What Should Someone Know About You?
I put maximum effort into everything I do. I became a builder as shelter is a basic need and right of every human. Being able to provide someone with their dream home while having them enjoy the process of us getting there together--there is simply no better feeling! I get to wake up and do this for my profession and I am so grateful for the opportunity to do so.
