After his first construction project, a tree house when he was a kid, Aaron knew he was onto something. In between building that tree house and founding Aaron Gordon Construction, Inc. and 415 Remodeling, Inc., Aaron worked for his father manufacturing speakers in the car audio industry. There he developed his instincts for business, and went on to earn a business degree from Sonoma State University. Following graduation he worked as a stage hand and set builder and in his spare time worked on small construction projects. The projects became larger and more frequent until Aaron eventually decided to get his general contractor’s license and combine his passion for building with his passion for running a business. He has never looked back. When he’s not working Aaron spends time with his wife and son, goes camping, plays tennis, and thinks business.
Bill began his professional career as a real estate appraiser in the mid-80’s after graduating from University of Colorado. He took a break from real estate to help develop several successful internet start-ups, but after surviving the dot-com crash of 2001, Bill made a deliberate shift back to the more tangible world of houses and remodeling. For him, almost nothing is more satisfying than helping his clients increase their property values while dramatically improving their quality of life. He and Aaron Gordon shared a vision of creating a high quality and service-oriented design/build team in San Francisco and from there 415 Remodeling, Inc. was born. In his free time Bill rides road, mountain and x-cross bicycles and enjoys outdoor activities with his wife, Renee.

Growing up observing her mom’s work in retail construction, Hayley was naturally drawn to construction and design as a career. She loves merging creative project concepts with practical parameters like interior construction and lighting while accounting for future furnishings. Hayley’s superpower is to overcome any building challenge by gaining all the information needed to accomplish the construction/building goal. Once an idea is set in stone, she drafts a detail plan to share with each client. Not only does she design, but Hayley oversees the permitting process to ensure each project is up-to-code and compliant during and at the completion of the remodel. When she’s not designing, Hayley stays inspired by traveling, developing film in the dark room, and painting.

What makes Brandon tick outside of managing jobsites is a beautiful hike or a leisurely float on his 17-foot boat out on the Sacramento River.
