One immigrant's Journey


A Local Company with a Nation Reputation

Ger Ronan was an immigrant from Ireland who came to the United States with $80 in his pocket. He worked hard to live the American dream and make himself successful. During his struggles, he was ripped off by a contractor who took a $2,500 deposit, and never showed up to do the work. Years later, Ger worked as a home improvement sales person, and felt a disconnect between customers and home improvement companies. Yankee Home was founded by Ger Ronan to serve a specific goal. Ger wanted to start a home improvement company that would strive to be a homeowners Contractor for Life.
