SR. PROJECT MANAGER & INTERIOR DESIGNER
Kelly has a degree in Interior Design and her goal was always to work for a home builder and help homeowners create their dream homes from start to finish. I guess you could say that Kelly is now living her dream!
She is not above trying to steal other people’s pets to take them home as companions for her husband Josh and adorable puppy, Peyton.
“Success is about what you inspire others to do.”
Jen is a valued member of our Radue Team and knows customer experience is our number one priority. This life of the party is bound and determined to leave you feeling better than she found you – and she will!

PROJECT MANAGER & CO-OWNER
Julie began her amazing journey with Radue Homes Inc over seventeen years ago! She has been providing a supporting or active role in the company since 2002 in such roles as Bookkeeper, Assistant, Human Resources, and whatever else was needed! Now she’s one of our awesome Project Managers! At one time, she was also Co-Owner of The Denmark News and worked in Special Education at Denmark School District.
Julie currently lives in Ledgeview, living at her twenty-second address in over six states! She’s not a gypsy, but her father was military, which means she also went to eight schools over twelve years in four different states.
When Julie is not busy working hard to help customers build the home of their dream, she loves reading, cooking, spoiling her pets, and spending time with her family! Can you believe, she still enjoys traveling!?
“I like pink. Pink is my signature color.” – Shelby Eatenton Latcherie, Steel Magnolias
Abby received a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Wisconsin- Green Bay in 2005. She fell in love with the home building process when going through it herself and looks forward to helping other families bring their vision to life when building their forever home.
In her spare time she enjoys travelling, playing golf, sailing, and spending time with her husband and dogs.

Hard to believe Dannielle joined the Radue Team over a year ago. Dannielle is our Staff Accountant and loves analyzing and crunching the numbers – looking for ways we can save more for our customers!
When Dannielle isn’t at work, she can be found hanging out with her husband Adam and their children, Bre and Cole.
“Only accountants can save the world. Through peace, goodwill, and reconciliations.”
RESIDENTIAL HOME DESIGNER
Ryan felt that we weren’t challenged enough with staff named Dan, Dannielle, and Danielle – we have added a Danelle to our fine crew!
Danelle has worked in the building industry as a residential designer for over twenty years. She is a self-proclaimed “lumber nerd”. She loves helping turn customers’ ideas and wishes into their dream home! She is a classroom home design mentor for area high school students taking Tech-Ed Drafting and is very active in Scouts BSA for both her son’s troop and their linked girls’ troop.
When not designing homes, Danelle is an avid reader, likes to spend time with her husband and son, and is always looking for the next adventure to get out and enjoy the great outdoors!
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Our first crew member was Eric, joining Radue Homes in 2002 – and there’s nothing he doesn’t know! Eric specializes in arranging ceramic tiles for custom showers, kitchen backsplashes, or laying quality flooring.
Eric keeps himself busy outside of work as a Brillion Volunteer Firefighter and husband to his beautiful wife Danielle and their two rambunctious sons, Sawyer and Bennett.
Hard to believe Adam joined the Radue Crew almost three years ago now. Adam is our Master Carpenter and specializes in custom built decor and trim. He loves a good project to get his creative juices flowing.
When he’s not covered in sawdust (or just wearing less of it), King Adam likes to hang out in his castle with his Queen Dannielle and his adorable children, Princess Bre and Prince Cole.
Kevin started with us in August 2019, but has been self-employed since 2005 as a carpenter having acquired many skills including framing, finishing and cabinetry. His work ethic along with putting the customer first is going to bring our organization to new heights!
He also completed four years with the U.S. Army and we thank Kevin for his service.
When he’s not doing quality work for us, he can be found traveling internationally and spending time with his family and friends.
Kyle is an experienced finish carpenter who just started his career with Radue Homes. Welcome Kyle!

Scott is a seasoned woodworker who makes custom made wooden furniture! Scott knows all about those customer deadlines, expectations and giving our customer’s the very best quality and value – he’s a small business owner himself. Prior to his own woodworking business, Scott worked at C.A. Lawton in maintenance. Maybe Scott will become Radue Homes’ next sought-after handy man?
When Scott isn’t busy keeping his fellow co-workers in line, he can be found spending time with his family, including his beautiful wife Barbie.
“A bad day woodworking is better than a good day working.”
Ryan was proud to add his cousin, Nathan, to our talented and growing crew of trim carpenters. Nathan worked many years with his father and we are more than happy to make a place for Nathan on our team. When we say Radue is a family tradition, we mean it!
“Quality isn’t expensive, it’s priceless.”
If you want perfection and quality, look no further than our fantastic Crew Painter, Ernesto. He strives to make certain every single homeowner is satisfied before moving on to the next project.
When he’s not balanced on a ladder or up high on some scaffolding, Ernesto can be found spending time with his family and friends.

Steve & Patty Radue
RETIRED AND LIVING THE DREAM
Steve and Patty both retired in 2018 with the desire to enjoy the fruits of their labor and spend more time with their grandchildren.
Steve was our founding father and started Radue Homes with his brother back in 1997. Patty joined Steve and Ryan in 2001 as Steve’s Assistant Project Manager but was our talented Design Consultant at Inspired Spaces when she retired. They spearheaded the tremendous growth of this organization. All together they went from three to twenty five employees and from one office to an office and a design center! Steve and Patty never took days off from work, and we applauded their strong work ethic. Now we applaud their decision to see what life holds for them in retirement.
We wish you both the happiest of retirements!
