We are privileged to have some of the most dedicated achievers in this industry working with us at Jandel Homes. In this edition of “Meet the Team”, we’re very pleased to introduce you to one of the veterans at Jandel. Celebrating his 15th year with us, Tim Johnston is definitely one of the most dedicated individuals within our organization.
Tim is currently our Branch Manager in Grande Prairie. He embarked on his career with Jandel as a Housing Consultant in the Edmonton office, when we were located on the north side of the city, on Fort Road. He then relocated to Grande Prairie and has been working at that Sales Centre since 2004.

Tim grew up in Ontario and moved out West in 1988. He worked as a Framer on a construction crew for over 10 years (in Ontario and Alberta) and then moved into the factory built industry in 1990, with what was then, Winalta Homes. During his tenure with Winalta, Tim served as a Foreman on the factory floor and then moved into the position of Warranty Manager in the office. He joined the Jandel team in 2000, serving as our Warranty Manager for a short time, then moving into the role of a Housing Consultant and eventually into the Branch Manager position.|
Tim has worked in the new home construction industry for over 35 years, with 25 of those years in the factory built industry. His knowledge of every aspect of new home construction makes him one of the foremost experts in this industry.

Tim resides with his wife, Kelly, in Grande Prairie. They are proud parents of two great kids. Their children are both grown and have each decided to make a life for themselves in the Peace Country. Tim is actively involved in his community, an avid supporter of Ronald McDonald House, the Grande Prairie Stompede and a season ticket holder with the Grande Prairie Storm.
