THE ANDERSON HOMES TEAM
The Anderson Homes Difference
TRANSPARENCY. INTEGRITY. VALUE.
Meet the Anderson Homes Team
Founded more than 35 years ago by Rick Anderson, Anderson Homes is dedicated to building homes of uncompromising quality, superior design and enduring value. Anderson Homes has built over 600 homes locally since 1981, and is the premier custom home builder in all of Sequim and Port Angeles.
Founder & President
Rick is the founder and president of Anderson Homes. He oversees design and material selection as well as the entire building process from the moment we meet our clients until they are handed their keys. Rick handles the budgets for each project personally, tracking costs to ensure homes are built at their contract price.
As a second-generation builder, Rick grew up in the construction industry building homes with his father in Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula. After spending his high school summers working in different fields of the construction industry he attended Washington State University where he received a degree in Business Administration with a focus in Finance. While being detail-oriented and a stickler for cost control has kept his projects on-time and on-budget, Rick attributes his success to his desire to treat people with dignity and respect.
Caleb focuses on sales development and operations management. He works closely with clients to transform their vision into a finished home. As a LEED Accredited Professional with the United States Green Building Council, Caleb ensures that our homes are environmentally responsible.
Like his father Rick, Caleb spent his early summers working in the construction trades in various roles, learning different aspects of the construction industry. In 2007 he graduated from the University of Washington with a B.S. in Construction Management. After college, Caleb worked for a general contractor managing large commercial projects in Seattle and Bellevue before returning to the Olympic Peninsula to work with Rick in the family business. In his free time, Caleb can be found rooting for the Huskies (much to the dismay of Rick, a life-long Cougar).
Caleb is a Certified Contract Manager through the University of Washington’s Professional Education Program as well as a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist through the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
Accounting & Administration Manager
Having developed a diversified set of skills from working in the new home building industry since 2002, Trisha has her hands in a little bit of everything at Anderson Homes. She not only manages the accounting and office functions, but also assists the company in a variety of other operational areas including Accounts Receivable, Human Resources, and Plan and Project Management. Trisha is a valued participant in our strategic initiatives and company management. She follows every project from beginning to end, tracking finances, contract completion and compliance records.
A native to the Olympic Peninsula, Trisha is an avid hiker, fisher, camper, and ATV rider. When not keeping Anderson Homes projects running smoothly, she can be found taking full advantage of the Pacific Northwest’s outdoor activities with her husband, Shane.
Garret learned the construction trades during his youth as he worked alongside his father remodeling family investment properties. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from Fresno State University, but as Garret says, “Art didn’t pay so well.” He transitioned from sculpting inanimate art objects into sculpting homes as a General Contractor from 1993 to 2015.
Garret envisions his role with Anderson Homes as catalyst and collaborator; he is responsible for delivering the owner’s vision. It is this personal connection to the owner’s dream that brings Garret his greatest reward. His artistic gift supports his endeavors with a keen eye for detail and concern for aesthetic that translates into a high standard of excellence in his work. Garret continues to pursue his artistic talents as a working artist when not stewarding a homeowner’s dream. He also enjoys fishing, working in the yard, and spending time with his family.
John began his career in the residential home building industry in 1989 in Mill Creek, Washington. He says he’s had the pleasure of building dreams ever since—over 600 of them across the Pacific Northwest. Construction was originally intended to be a temporary job while attending school in Small Business Management, but he found he enjoyed the challenges, journey and satisfaction of building something from the ground up. He loves juggling the demands of multiple projects and moved quickly into management, overseeing the construction of 30 to 60 homes a year on average. His reward is delivering a beautiful new home to its owner and witnessing the excitement it creates. John grew up on the Peninsula and considers it a dream come true to be back home and working for a company with integrity so he can do things right.
Give Stuart a complex problem to solve and he’s happy; multifaceted and interdisciplinary challenges fulfill him. In 2011 he graduated with a degree in Business Management from California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly). There he responded to a sense of duty to country by minoring in Military Science and joining Army ROTC, a decision that set him on a path for leadership.
After commissioning to active duty, he served as a Platoon Leader in Afghanistan and Fire Support Officer, responsible for Artillery and Air Support Integration, ultimately reaching the rank of Captain.
When ready for a new success story at the end of his contract, Construction Management offered a natural application for his interests, training and project management skills. He traded his military prestige and paycheck for an entry level position but quickly returned to managing the details. Stuart joined Anderson Homes in May 2018. He rewards himself for a job well done by hiking, skiing, water sports and boating.
New Home Consultant
Christy Fulmer has spent her career helping people find their way home. After moving to the Peninsula at just 19 years old, her entrepreneurial spirit led her into real estate sales. She developed a niche in the sale of new manufactured homes and was eventually recruited by a dealer to be their Sales Manager, overseeing a sales team for a new development. Helping people who might not otherwise afford home ownership secure their future was a rewarding effort. Christy’s career continued to grow, expanding into custom homes for a builder for three years before joining the Anderson Homes team in 2016. But Christy’s heart for service hasn’t changed with the higher price tag of the homes she represents. She knows that embarking upon building a dream home—especially in one’s retirement years—is an exciting and significant decision. She finds personal joy and satisfaction helping her customers do so with confidence. When not making new friends at Anderson Homes, you’ll find Christy enjoying her family and the magnificent Olympic Peninsula.
Kassie Dotlich moved to Sequim with her family in 1999. Captured by Sequim’s idyllic small-town atmosphere, she chose to build her life here. And Anderson Homes is happy she did. Kassie joined Anderson Homes as Accounting Clerk in 2018. With bookkeeping experience and her passions for puzzles, organizing and creating systems for improved efficiency, she’s perfect for managing the vast amounts of receivables and payables that pass across her desk.
Prior to working at Anderson Homes Kassie enjoyed supporting Sequim working at the Chamber of Commerce. She says she feels a similar reward in her role with Anderson Homes—that she’s still a part of building the community she loves as we welcome people home. When she’s not busily keeping Anderson Homes accounting in order, you will probably find Kassie out on the Olympic Discovery Trail with her dog, Indiana, enjoying the beauty of her Olympic Peninsula backyard.
Warranty and Safety Manager
Some people are just naturally mechanically-inclined. Josh is one of them. At five years old he decided to dismantle his family’s lawn mower and put it back together again. It still worked. Josh applies his natural talents as the Anderson Homes Warranty and Safety Manager to ensure that the quality Anderson Homes promises is achieved before and after the customer takes occupancy.
Josh’s inherent skills were honed during four years serving our country as a Navy Aviation Structural Mechanic—a member of a squadron responsible for taking beat-up planes and making them work like new again. Josh says his favorite thing to do is put a smile on people’s faces. Correcting an unanticipated problem helps him do just that. Josh has lived in the area most of his life and enjoys kayaking, gardening and rebuilding old cars with his father.
Home grown right here on the peninsula, Derek graduated from PAHS and attended Northwest College of Art where he studied fine arts and graphic design. Derek’s first exposure to residential construction came from Anderson Homes when he was fresh out of college. He learned much about processes and procedures in quality home building. He went on to live in the Tacoma area where he served as a superintendent for a custom home builder. Recently he was a building code inspector for Thurston County and has developed a well-rounded knowledge for all the facets of construction.
In particular, he is a people person and most enjoys working alongside clients and being a part of helping them build their dream homes. “Getting to see homeowners light up when you hand over their keys after the project is over is what it’s all about for me.”
Derek serves on the team as one of our superintendent’s and helps to oversee the field staff, giving direction and working alongside the crew to help ensure efficiency and quality in all aspects or the building process.
His passions include his wife and 5 children, coaching little league, art and the outdoors.
Anita Chilton says that contributing in a positive manner to the livelihood of others and creating efficiencies are her passion. She enjoys helping people understand their options and ensuring productivity. Add that to her attention to detail, professionalism, care and organizational skills and it’s no surprise that she rose to supervisory and management positions during her career.
It was while working for a variety of smaller firms following her studies in Interior Design that Anita recognized her natural inclination towards her administrative and client services skills. She put her talents to great use within the design and remodeling industry, including acting as a consultant and liaison for clients at one of the premiere design-build remodeling firms in San Diego, CA.
After 16 years in San Diego, the North Carolina native says she was ready for a smaller town and the Olympic Peninsula’s beauty and diversity drew her to relocate to Sequim. She enjoys her new adventures here including hiking, cycling, photography, music, cooking and time with friends.
Beth has 20+ years’ experience in the accounting field working for a variety of businesses in-and-outside of the construction industry, which makes her an instrumental asset to Anderson Homes. With prior employment at a nation-wide construction rental company, a construction material supplier, and Time-Warner and Pacific Theaters, Beth brings her keen ability for accuracy to the Anderson Homes Accounting department. Accounts receivable, payroll, and Human Resources are her main functions. Beth loves a challenge and thrives in the ever-changing new home construction industry.
Transplants from Los Angeles, CA, Beth and her husband relocated to Sequim, WA in 2016 to escape the daily haste, crowds, and smog along with the excessive heat. Sequim’s natural beauty, mild temperatures, and small-town way of life beckoned them. At every opportunity, Beth delights in the sights of the Northwest Peninsula by walking, hiking, camping, and loving all of Washington’s pristine state parks. As an avid gardener, she grows her own crops and shares her bounty with the staff.
Born in Seattle but raised mainly in Southern California, Ian had always planned a return to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. He and his wife finally made the escape in the summer of 2019 when they relocated from the Los Angeles area.
Ian spent his early career in the hospitality and foodservice industries where he focused on customer service. After earning a B.S. in commercial print, Ian worked for several printing companies before deciding to switch gears. Most recently, Ian worked for fifteen years in the environmental consulting field managing document formatting, quality control, reproduction, distribution, and scheduling.
Ian and his wife chose the Olympic Peninsula for its abundance of natural beauty and distance from major cities; close enough to visit but far enough to enjoy a quieter lifestyle. When he isn’t helping people in the Anderson Homes administrative office, Ian can often be found roaming the local beaches and forests, sitting quietly and taking it all in, or taking pictures of local flora and fauna.
