Our Story

Founded with the vision to establish a lasting company built on integrity, a deep commitment to professionalism, and a passion for creating opportunities for its associates, JK Monarch Fine Homes is fast becoming a force among Pacific Northwest homebuilders.

Our goal is to produce a paramount product and service that our customers can depend upon. In 2011 Jonathan Bartels paired his experience in the Construction Industry and his passion for outdoor environments with a love for fine homebuilding in forming JK Monarch.

Soon after, in 2013, he aligned with now President Mike Christensen who brought a wealth of custom homebuilding, quality control, and construction management to the effort. Mike has a passion for excellence and an ability to get projects done. These qualities allowed him to become a leader in our local Homebuilding Industry with many custom homes and satisfied customers, including several Street of Dreams projects.

Now as JK Monarch, Jonathan and Mike lead a skilled team of professionals in crafting homes and communities of exquisite quality that transcend the ordinary to become timeless classics. A JK Monarch production, semi-custom, or custom home is all about using well thought out designs, the finest quality materials, painstaking attention to detail, and an unmatched customer service experience that sets the bar for the industry.

This tremendous effort results in satisfied homebuyers who experience a unique reality a JK Monarch Home. From the interior to the exterior, and the foundation to the roof, with everything in between, there is nothing quite like a JK Monarch home.
