Cravath Homes LLC is owned by Jon Cravath, a life long resident of the Rochester area. Jon grew up on the family farm near Chatfield. After four years in the United States Air Force he returned to Minnesota where he owned an excavation business for two years. He then went to the U of M, Carlson School of Management where he graduated with a degree in Business Management. During college he worked for a major motel chain managing hotel operations which provided a unique perspective of the housing industry.
Upon completion of college he owned a real estate company that specialized in property rental and sales. A large percentage of the sales were new construction where he developed an interest in this aspect of real estate. After selling the company he went to work for a local builder for three years and then started his own residential building business. This business was sold to a partner in 2004 at which time he opened Cravath Homes, LLC.
Jon has been active in the construction and real estate communities for over 20 years.
