About Us


Welcome to Black Bear Repair, your local source for superior handyman services in the Twin Cities Metro Area.

Our founder, Travis, is a dedicated family man, diligent professional, and Oklahoma native who fell in love with Minnesota after a journey that led him from the skies of the Air Force to the heart of Saint Paul.

Travis' story began in Oklahoma, where he developed a passion for repair and maintenance. Driven by a sense of duty, he enlisted in the Air Force and became an airplane mechanic. This period of service honed his mechanical skills while instilling in him the core values of discipline, dedication, and meticulous attention to detail.

While serving, Travis met his future wife. The couple decided to move to Minnesota, where they could build a life together. Here, Travis embarked on a new educational journey, starting at Anoka-Ramsey Community College before transferring to the University of Saint Thomas, where he earned his degree in Business.



While attending the University of Saint Thomas, Travis and his wife settled in Saint Paul, where they purchased a home and welcomed two beautiful children into their lives. As he transitioned into a career in mortgage banking at US Bank. During his time at U.S. Bank, Travis gained an understanding of the financial aspects of homeownership. 

However, during this time, Travis realized that his true passion was not in helping people acquire homes, but rather in assisting them to improve, repair, and truly appreciate the homes they were already in.

And so, Black Bear Repair was born.

Drawing on his expertise and education, Travis launched Black Bear Repair. His goal? To bring top-quality handyman services to his neighbors in Minneapolis and help them turn their houses into the homes of their dreams.

From minor fixes to major renovations, Travis and his team are committed to delivering the best service for all your home improvement needs. Reach out to Black Bear Repair today and experience the difference a dedicated, experienced handyman can make.
