About our company and it’s founders.

About Paltrin

Paltrin homes was started in 2009 and run by husband and wife team, Justin Riddle and Tessa Lee. Their first project together was a home renovation in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. They discovered a mutual love of design, restoration and working with their hands and that lead to the formation of Paltrin. They both have a background in engineering and when you couple that with their passions for modernity, eco-consciousness and a drive for innovation, you get a very forward looking company with its sights set on the future. 

About Our Team



President, Co-Owner and Designer

Justin Riddle

President, Co-Owner and Designer

Justin has been doing renovation nearly his entire life. Helping his father at home, he learned the ins & outs of do-it-yourself projects. Years later, Justin bought his first home and restored it …then decided to move on and tackle another. He now leads a crew of people that are part of a hand picked roster of experts working with Paltrin. By trade, he is scientist, and a certified Six-Sigma black belt for workflow and strategy. At heart he is an artist, and in his spare time dabbles in photography and plays with his twins.




VICE President, Co-Owner and CFO

Tessa Lee

Vice President, Co-Owner and CFO

Tessa Lee is our VP and CFO. She is the glue that binds everything together at Paltrin. Her impeccable organization skills and her love of modern design influences everything we do. She is a key decision maker when it comes to the aesthetic of our home projects and she utilizes her background as a design engineer to also bring practicality to what we do. In her free time, she enjoys travel, the arts and time with her twins.




The people behind the scenes

Genius Team

The people behind the scenes

We have a range of people who we credit with assisting us behind the scenes. They unfortunately are a bit camera shy. In all honesty we partner with the right people at the right times to get Class-A results and while many of them are independent agents… as we grow we will be bringing more of them online and introducing these magic makers to you. If you would like to be considered for our team, we are always looking to meet new folks.
