John Hayes


Having grown up with a father who was a builder, John got a behind-the-scenes view of the construction industry. Starting at a young age, pouring house foundations and building houses all the way through to the final detailed finishes allowed him to develop House to Home into the company that it is today.

John’s vision and focus on excellence has led to a successful 25+ year career in helping homeowners undergo home design builds and home remodel projects. He is committed to providing positive, professional and exceptional service each and every time. House to Home has steadily grown in size and reputation due to John’s keen ability to lead and orchestrate project teams among his 25+ in-house employees and 250+ trade partners. This gives him an edge over the competition because of his insights and coordination of people that work best together to ensure a smooth customer experience.
John is genuine, kind and upholds his team to a high standard of performance while also providing an environment where they feel appreciated and respected. When he’s not serving in the role of CEO, John enjoys spending time with his family and dogs, racing motocross, surfing and snowboarding.
