Joe Umberger
PARTNER

Joe was born and raised in the Midwest, where he developed a passion for meticulous craftsmanship and cutting-edge building science. Attracted by the notion of shaping the world with his hands, Joe cut his teeth in the trades, proving himself as an accomplished carpenter and fine-finish painter. He had an uncanny eye for detail from the get-go, a fact which propelled him into project management – and ultimately entrepreneurship – at a young age.

Before moving to Bozeman, Joe ran an ultra-custom homebuilding firm in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He managed construction and design for some of the premier residential property developments in the state, including multimillion-dollar legacy mansions on Lake Minnetonka with materials sourced from around the world. Joe’s creative intuition, commitment to client service, and unyielding attention to detail earned him rapport with some of the most discerning clientele in the region.

Joe brings a truly unique skillset to the Southwest Montana building community. He is a lifelong student of architecture and building with a voracious appetite for honing his skills in a wide range of styles, including mountain modern, rustic, country French, and contemporary. Since moving to Bozeman, Joe has managed numerous builds from conception, including luxury ranches in the Big Hole, Beaverhead, and Madison Valleys as well as custom mountain homes in Spanish Peaks, Yellowstone Club, and Moonlight Basin. He has built over $90 million in custom homes in his career.

A process-driven leader, Joe believes that transparent, efficient building procedures unlock the true creative potential of a project. Building is more than Joe’s career: it’s his personal passion and he invests himself in each and every project. He assembles loyal, dedicated team members that are willing to prioritize the client’s vision at any cost.

In his free time, Joe loves spending time with his wife, Allison, and their son and daughter. When he isn’t camping or snowmobiling with his family, he is fly fishing or snowboarding, two passions that recharge his creative capacities and drive his appreciation for the Mountain West aesthetic.
