|CEO John Hammersmith founded Hammersmith Construction Services in 2008. Like many other offerings under the Hammersmith name, Hammersmith Construction Services was created from the intersection of Homeowner necessity and John’s desire and ability to fill it.
With more than 37 years in the real estate management industry, John began to realize that many Homeowners lacked the knowledge and experience necessary to make decisions on construction issues. From writing the scope to procuring bids and all the way up through the actual completion of the project, he recognized that the construction process is foreign and complex to many, and that Homeowners needed a representative available to assist them every step of the way. Thus, Hammersmith Construction Services was born.
John is a native of Colorado and enjoys the outdoors with his wife, their four children, and their two grandchildren.
