It all started in Kauai, Hawaii while the family and their kiddos were vacationing. During an evening conversation, AJ had an accidental slip referring to Josh as his “honey.” So under a beating sun with the waves crashing and the Kona Lager flowing, the Honey Brothers were born...brothers by blood and sisters by chance.

The newest addition to the Pettersen crew, Caitlin has thus far made a living supporting the needs of others with career stops in both high school mental health and residential real estate lending. She's the perfect person to chase around all of our contractors and tenants at the same time as she's chasing whatever new batch of animals is living with her and Luke.

She's our head of tenant management and makes sure our tenants and our properties are feeling good!

Likes: foster kitties, low interest rates, spontaneous happy hours
Dislikes: turning over tenants, also beans (I know, weird, right?)

The youngest Honey Brother, Luke parlayed a successful baseball career and business degree into a thriving real estate business. In that career, he's developed an expertise in not only in helping people find their dream home, but also in identifying great investment opportunities for the HB team.

He leads all efforts acquisition with a focus on finding properties in our target neighborhoods that need the Honey Brother touch and supports AJ through the project management process.

Likes: long 3 pointers, off market transactions, family foosball games
Dislikes: events that end in regulation, beans, shoveling in October

LUKE

Our resident Doctor, Kristen devotes her life to helping people be the most authentic version of themselves at her mental health practice. Her spare time is spent with Josh, Adelle & Milo back in their old stomping grounds in Minnetonka.

As our most organized team member, Kristen leads all of our team meetings and ensures we stay on topic and on time, as well as helping map out key processes and roles. Anyone that's ever been around Pettersen boys knows that's an almost impossible thing to achieve.

Likes: enormous bowls of popcorn, open floorplans, the ocean breeze
Dislikes: carpet covered wood floors, team meeting tangents, olives

Emily spent her early days (and nights) working as a labor and delivery nurse where she helped countless mom's bring new life into the world. She now spends her days with her two boys, Holden & Brody, while repping Beautycounter products, and her nights watching bad TV with AJ and working on their forever home.

She is the Chief Design Officer on our squad and has a knack for creating clean and minimalist modern spaces that bring new life to the mid century homes that we buy.

Likes: white wine in the summertime, shiplap, popcorn parties
Dislikes: messiness, unfinished projects, bad Instagram filters

The oldest Honey Brother, Josh started his career at Target where he was given opportunities to learn many different business types and developed a passion for taking on new challenges. That passion is what led him to want to jump into real estate investing with AJ. He spends his days working in healthcare and his nights chasing around kids & tenants.

He currently fills most non-house related roles, running our contracts, accounting, supporting marketing (social media & website), and collections 'departments'.

Likes: Twins baseball, family trips, buying wine, clean spreadsheets
Dislikes: odd numbers, any and all ‘aise’s’, journal entries

AJ left a career in professional baseball to become a real estate agent in 2014 and shortly thereafter developing an intense passion for all things house related. It started with selling houses & doing some DIY projects and quickly escalated into larger home renovation projects and a desire to become a real estate investor. It was this desire that resulted in the creation of our business and it’s why he’s the nectar that powers this group of Honey B’s.

He runs point all of our transformations and is the reason our before and after photos end up turning out so well!

Likes: cutting grass, boxed wine, team meeting tangents, bad reality TV
Dislikes: snow in April, unpermitted properties, green beans
