Nick Shepard - Owner/President

Born with a framing hammer in his hand, Nick has worked in construction in various capacities for more than 18 years. He started his career as a laborer on home build sites and eventually worked his way up to a position as the right hand of one of Kansas City’s most predominant custom home builders. As the economy cooled the building industry he took on a position as Vice President of Operations of a $25 million per year Logistics Company, but construction never left him. Nick officially opened KC Home Solutions for business in 2012. The company started with small projects and under his leadership has become one of Johnson County’s premier remodeling experts and custom home builders.

Nick and his wife are kept busy by their two amazing little girls and German shepherd.

Jason Mankin, CRPM - Certified Remodeling Project Manager

To say that Jason hails from a family of expert remodelers would be considered an understatement. He comes to KC Home Solutions with more than 19 years of working on custom remodeling projects ranging from a few thousand dollars to hundreds of thousands. Due to attention to detail and capabilities, his work with several of Kansas City’s best Interior Design and Decorators have been featured in various publications in the metro throughout his career. He has the ability to take a project and break down the details so that the customer will know precisely where and what they will have upon completion. Jason is a Certified Remodeling Project Manager, one of very few in all of Kansas City. His certification is through the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). To become certified he had to go through extensive course work and pass an all-encompassing test to prove his expertise and knowledge in remodeling.

Jason and his daughter spend time with their extended family and friends as often as possible.
