Connell’s Restoration and Remodeling, based out of Hastings, MN is owned and operated by Matt Connell. Matt grew up in the construction industry alongside his General Contractor father and his older brother. When he was young, Matt took many trips to job sites with his father. These adventures provided Matt with an early education into the entire construction process. As soon as he was old enough, Matt was helping his dad by cleaning up construction debris during and after construction projects. Matt remembers the times working beside his father and brother fondly. Matt’s many early experiences have fostered a love of the business and a genuine interest in helping people in any way possible.

When it was time to select a career, Matt opened his own siding company managing several crews at a time. His siding company grew and allowed him to easily move into Real Estate. It was while working as a Licensed Realtor Matt identified a huge need to clean-up, maintain and remodel Bank Owned Assets. His interest in helping his realtor colleagues with this area of the business grew; Matt added building and remodeling to his list of services. Soon, Matt’s company expanded into all types of maintenance, remodeling and restoration. By providing comprehensive quality services in a timely manner, Matt has built a company he is proud of and a reputation to match. The professionals on Matt’s team are properly licensed, insured and trained to meet your needs and exceed your expectations. His dedicated and talented office staff is ready and waiting to take your call. Established in 1999, Connell’s Real Estate Services has been providing customers in the Twin Cities area with quality workmanship for over 15 years.
