After finishing up with college at Montana State University, Ed Sexton headed to Helena with his finance, Donnie, and moved right into construction, signing on with a commercial / development firm, Nicholson, Inc. After a few years and overseeing several commercial developments as a project manager, Ed made the decision to strike out on his own and focus on residential construction. In 1984, Ed and his wife Donnie incorporated their business, and Sexton Group Construction was born. This became a family owned business with the addition of their two sons, Jed and Tanner. Today, the business continues to grow and focuses not only custom homebuilding, but remodels and light commercial. Both sons are involved in the construction business.
After several years in the field with hands on experience in all phases of construction, Jed has taken on the role of general manager for the company. Jed and his wife Riann are parents to Hyser and Dakota, so any spare time is devoted to these youngsters. Tanner works for Hard ‘n Heavy Concrete, a company we utilize for the foundation work on all our projects. His passion for fishing and hunting consumes his free time.

From the initial plan development to the interior and exterior design choices, Lee is hands-on with each client to assure their expectations are met within the timelines and budget created for them. As a Realtor Lee also markets our homes and is available to assist clients needing to sell an existing home.
Lee and his wife Carol, both Nebraska natives, moved to Helena in 1978 and are proud parents of daughters Elizabeth and Carlee. Their four grandsons, two in Boise and two in Bozeman, provide the perfect excuse for weekend trips to hang with the boys.
