Terry Gaulrapp, Partner


Terry has worked in nearly every facet of the construction industry in his over 20 years in business. His hands-on experience in everything from design to scheduling to building and finishing give him unparalleled knowledge and understanding of how the process works.

On any given day you’ll find Terry meeting with clients, estimating or managing projects, and overseeing Highmark finances. He enjoys the opportunity to work closely with clients to create the spaces that will transform and enrich their families’ lives. Highmark’s strong culture of ethics and teamwork is a direct result of his leadership.
Terry has a B.S. in Construction Management from Mankato State University. He subsequently spent five years at Ryan Companies as a Project Manager for both residential and commercial construction projects. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends as well as many outdoor sports. Terry is married to Sara and father to Adrianna, Riley and Addison.

Jim Moras, Partner


Jim learned about the inner workings of houses at an early age from his dad, who was both a plumber and electrician. That interest blossomed into a career that has spanned two decades and included stints with commercial as well as residential construction firms from the Twin Cities to L.A. Jim loves going to work every day, meeting new clients and taking on new challenges.

He particularly enjoys using his gift for design to create homes that combine beauty with unique functionality. It’s also important to Jim that Highmark offers a warm, open and family-oriented environment where people can thrive in their positions. He and partner Terry work hard to recruit the best people and make it a place that they want to stay.

Jim has a B.S. in Construction Management from Mankato State University. He enjoys spending time with his family and volunteering on building projects in Central and South America through his church. He is married to Katie, a Spanish teacher, and the father of Courtney, Cody and Andrés.
