With the encouragement of their dad, Kerri and Eddie formed K&E Construction in 2001. They started with single family homes and then went on to building several townhouse condo buildings. Both Kerri and Eddie have grown up in the business and possess many years of experiences. Today they have refined the process of building a custom home on your lot to a level that actually “makes it fun.” Kerri has both the personality and knowledge to make her clients comfortable dealing with her. Ed has the experience and expertise to bring together all of the complex issues involved in construction. After many years of dating, Kerri finally got married in 2004. Her husband John was immediately interested in construction and joined K&E Construction. He is now the director of construction and is on site everyday. This team can make the construction of your new home a great experience!
Phil Johnson - Founder
It began in 1981 as a hobby. Today, 28 years later the companies established by Philip Johnson encompass all aspects of residential construction, development, sales, and finance. Starting from the ground up with single family homes, the companies now design, secure local approvals, develop and market residential projects, from town house condo projects to all types of single family subdivisions on the south shore. As company president, Phil is responsible for providing the leadership and vision for the companies and the development of residential projects. He has a hands on approach for all aspects of the developments to ensure exceptional design and amenities for all new residential communities that are developed.
Ed Johnson – Director of Operation
As founder Phil Johnson’s son, Ed has done every job in the business and has 15+ years of experience in the construction and site work end of the business. He has performed and managed all phases of construction and has personally overseen construction for over 100 homes on the South Shore. In 2001 he started his own construction company with his sister Kerri and that business is now NHN’s custom building division. Having supervised on-site for so long, Ed has recently switched his focus to operations for the company. He currently manages all pricing, contracts and financial aspects of the custom building division. His knowledge of construction, site conditions, local town logistics/politics and home design make him the one at NHN who can work out all the feasibility and technical aspects of turning customer concepts into their dream home.
Kerri Johnson – Director of Sales
Raised in the business, daughter of NHN founder Phil Johnson, Kerri has a solid 15 years of real estate and construction experience behind her. It took Kerri just two years practicing real estate to become one of the top producing agents on the south shore. In 2001 she switched focus and started her own construction company with her brother Ed…a company that has done so well that it is now the official custom building component of NHN. Kerri, the face and front office of NHN, is an expert in helping clients identify their needs and desires in a home/property and working with them to make things happen within their financial comfort levels. Kerri is personally involved with every stage of design in creating clients’ dream homes. She built her own home in 2002 and is one of very few female holders of an unrestricted construction supervisor’s license in Massachusetts.
John Rehm – Director of Construction
John came to NHN from Fidelity Investments where he started working as a temp during high school and college vacation breaks. After graduating from Colby College he spent the next 13 years working in several areas of the company, at one point being responsible for customer service for a group of VIP clients with $1 billion in assets with the company. At the time he left Fidelity he was managing a staff of technical analysts in their Institutional Brokerage division. His years at Fidelity taught him the customer service, communications and organizational skills necessary to manage construction projects efficiently and to the customers’ satisfaction. Like Kerri and Ed, John also holds a Massachusetts unrestricted Construction Supervisor’s License and since joining the company has built hundreds of homes for NHN and their customers. His superior customer service focus and attention to client satisfaction makes the construction phase of NHN projects what clients repeatedly say was one of the best parts of their home building experience.
