Jaren Johnson, Owner/President

Jaren Johnson is the owner and president of Guidance Homes. Jaren embarked on his career in the custom home building business in his early 20’s and started working as a job supervisor for his father’s custom home building company. Jaren later thought it would be beneficial to study and learn real estate and practice as a licensed real estate agent while he was assisting his father. Now Jaren and his father Jim have partnered together to make one of the strongest custom home building teams in the North East Metro and surrounding area.

“Striving to hold ourselves and all who work with us to higher standards…blending design and practicality, cost and creativity, while building dreams.”

Guidance Homes is here to serve our customers in all areas of the transaction, that is why we have implemented our own real estate team; Jaren Johnson Realty Group. Contact us today for more information.
