Vanessa FriesenOffice Manager Email Vanessavanessa@ridgepointhomes.ca
In late 2012, Vanessa became involved in Ridgepoint Homes. Transitioning into an office position from her previous work as a hairstylist, Vanessa was up to the challenge and has loved her role ever since. She loves what the design/construction industry has to offer and the process that’s involved in creating beautiful living spaces, especially getting to see the finished project come to life and the pure joy it brings to each homeowner. To Vanessa, being apart of the joy Ridgepoint Homes brings to each client is the most rewarding part of her job.
Vanessa met her husband Ken in 2011 in Kelowna, BC. They were married a year later in August of 2012, and were blessed with their beautiful daughter, Kenzie, in April of 2015. Just months after their daughter was born, they were fortunate to find their dream home sooner than expected, and have settled their family onto some property in West Abbotsford.
Ken FriesenPresident Email Kenken@ridgepointhomes.ca
Coming from a family that was involved in construction, Ken became very passionate about building early in life. Ken first joined the construction industry in 2005, starting off as a framer/apprentice working for several construction companies and builders throughout BC. While completing his journeyman ticket in carpentry, he learned a lot about the construction process, and being able to see houses and multi family buildings come to fruition made him want to start his own business.
In 2012, he married his wife, Vanessa, and a few years later they had their very energetic daughter, Kenzie, who brings so much joy to their lives. Ken enjoys many outdoors activities such as dirt biking, fishing, hunting, water sports, and snow skiing. One of their favourite things to do as a family is to spend time on the water during summer, doing activities on the boat.
Building new homes and developing new relationships with homeowners has become more than just a daily job. It’s turned into something that Ken is very passionate about. He loves meeting with new families and being apart of creating the perfect home for them. Ken takes the time to be personally involved with each project. He is committed to working and communicating with his clients through every step of the building process because he wants his clients to feel like they have made the best choice to have Ridgepoint Homes build their dream home for them!
Joel VisscherSite Supervisor Email Joeljoel@ridgepointhomes.ca
Joel and Ken first met each other while working on a townhouse project in Abbotsford back in 2008. From there, they both moved to Kelowna for a while to continue working on building projects. After that venture, they parted ways from working with each other full time, although they still remained friends and kept in touch. Over the years, Joel did other construction related jobs, but always found himself helping Ridgepoint Homes on the side. After many years of framing for other construction companies, Joel decided to come work with Ken. Ridgepoint Homes has offered Joel the diversity in a job that he has always been looking for.
In August 2014, Joel married his lovely wife, Jessie, and on November 23, 2016, they welcomed their son Oscar into the world. He keeps them very busy outside of working hours, and is their little bundle of joy. They have been members at Northview Church since their dating years. Joel has been a perfect addition to our team.
