Meet the Ketmar Team
In May 1988, Marie Kenton founded Ketmar Development Corporation, an anagram of “Market.” Marie, a Real Estate Broker, believed that the product she was showing could be better, both structurally and architecturally! Her passion has lead her to Design-Build Custom homes that truly reflect the personality of each homeowner she works with. Marie personally works with every client to create a one-of-a-kind architectural design that suits their individual visions!
Charlie joined Ketmar in 1989 with over 20 years experience in framing and construction. Charlie’s pedantic eye and attention to detail, combined with his field experience, has carried Ketmar’s level of quality and craftsmanship to a new altitude! In 2009, Charlie received his Green Builder Certification; his knowledge of Green products and building techniques has again, raised the bar for all Ketmar homes!
