Frontier Construction is the product of a LOT of hard work on Nate’s part. He started from scratch with an idea and the determination to create a quality construction company that could handle projects from a simple remodel to a commercial structure. Specializing in custom home building and commercial projects, Frontier Construction also handles all things maintenance for Frontier Property Management. Nate has created a business that is quickly becoming Northeast Kansas’ premier construction company!
Nate fell in love with Manhattan’s small town feel, but with plenty to do! Construction is a perfect fit for Nate as you will rarely find him indoors. When Nate isn’t working with clients or on site, you can find him hiking with his adopted Pitbull/Mini-Aussie mix Maize.

- Director of Operations
Originally from Topeka, KS, Tanner moved to Manhattan to attend K-State and graduated with a degree in General & Operational Supply Chain Management. Around the office, Tanner is the go-to-guy with any questions. He oversees the leasing staff, handles new client on-boarding as well as generating every lease that Frontier signs. Tanner’s brain is full of fun facts about the various properties we manage. Need to know if a property has carpet or hardwood? Tanner has probably been in the house and can tell you off the top of his head. That’s just how his brain works! When Tanner isn’t at the office, he can be found outside with his 2 year old Lab/Pit mix Dax. Sometimes Tanner will bring Dax to the office to play with Chip! Tanner also enjoys hiking in Colorado and spending time at the lake camping and fishing. Frontier is a natural fit for Tanner as he intends to invest in the Manhattan area real estate market as soon as he pays off his student loans! Tanner has grown to enjoy the Manhattan community as it has a small town feel with the amenities you would expect in a much larger city. We’re lucky Tanner decided to stay in the Manhattan community!

Besides being our in house Excel magician, Bree plays an integral role in the office as she is the main point of contact for our residents! Bree manages all communication to the residents.

Bree has it covered. In addition to communication, Bree manages Aztec Self-Storage on behalf of Frontier Management. Bree’s background in human resources makes her a great liaison between Frontier and our residents. Originally from Kansas City, MO, Bree came to Manhattan to attend K-State and never left after graduation!

- Maintenance Coordinator
Laurra is the mastermind behind our maintenance department. She is the magician who finds solutions for everything from ordinary maintenance issues to the hard-to-believe! Laurra handles all of this while simultaneously juggling other construction projects.
When she isn’t daydreaming about the beach life, Laurra spends her free time in her garden working on the landscape or tending the koi pond. Laurra loves Manhattan because it really is a small town at heart, not to mention the abundance of her favorites-Mexican and Italian food! If Laurra could live anywhere in the world, she would live in Hawaii, so we’re incredibly lucky to have her at Frontier!
- Director of Human Resources
Gwyn joined the Frontier Family as a nomad. Her background in construction and human resources made her a perfect fit for Frontier but we just weren’t sure what she would be doing! As Frontier continued to grow and evolve, it quickly became apparent that the human resources background would prevail and here we are.
Gwyn is passionate about people, service and mental health. Having grown up on a farm in East Tennessee, Gwyn enjoys all things outdoors including kayaking, camping and just about anything involving dirt. When Gwyn isn’t in the office or off site working, you can find her at home with her 3 rescue dogs (Blue, Millie and Gracie), her horse and 17 chickens.
- Director of Leasing
When Cayle isn’t watching sports… or daydreaming about golf, he is keeping Frontier together, literally. Cayle plays a pivotal role in the office as he is the main line of communication for everyone. If anyone has a question about anything at the office, they ask Cayle. He has his hand in every aspect of Frontier’s day to day operation. To say Cayle is a people person wouldn’t do him justice. He handles everything we throw at him with ease! Cayle had no idea what was in store for him when he moved to Manhattan in 2013 to attend K-State. He quickly fell in love with the area and never left!
Cayle recently added an additional member to his family-Neko is a Border Collie/Chihuahua mix. When asked what it’s like being the person in the office who keeps everything from falling apart, he simply responded “lol, what do you mean?”. This is what makes Cayle such an invaluable asset for Frontier!
