“We don’t build homes, we build a family’s legacy”
Rick Larson – Founder


With over 100 combined years of high-end construction experience, Rick Larson and his Montare team have built it all. At Montare, our attention to detail during all phases of construction is second to none. Combine that with our awards received, honesty, integrity, accountability, and you have Denver’s premier custom homebuilder.

Jeremy Larson

Jeremy grew up watching his father Rick meticulously pay attention to detail in all phases of construction.  During high school and college, he owned and operated a painting remodeling company.  He graduated from Colorado State University with a BA in Finance and Real Estate.  His goal working with clients in real estate financing and portfolio management was to make sure that things were done right the first time and with the highest level of attention to detail.  He decided to join the family business and is an integral part of the team in working with owners, architects, engineers and subcontractors.

Chris King
Project Manager

Growing up watching and helping my Dad remodel and flip houses gave me my start in construction and officially launched my career in 1996. Since moving to Colorado in 2001, I have worked for some of the most elite builders in the Denver area as project manager and been involved in projects of all sizes, from one room remodels to large custom homes and high-end remodels which earned awards and local magazine articles. My keen attention to detail in combination with my organizational skills are valued and appreciated by my clients, architects, designers, and subcontractors. I am drawn to the challenges inherent in custom homebuilding. It’s my passion and I am excited to wake up every day knowing that I get to build someone’s dreams.
