Brian L Friend

President & Owner, Marine, Cycling Coach, Traveler


Brian served our country as a U.S. Marine. He has since worked in various industries and partner businesses, from end-to-end. He has served in various roles from sales all the way up to management in a variety of sales-oriented organizations. His experience in the mortgage and insurance industries brings a unique understanding of real estate and insurance to the professionals serving those industries, allowing us to provide a unique client experience not expected of the roofing industry.

He started Just Roof And Gutters with a mission to provide an environment where our teammates can become financially independent and have lifestyle freedom. All told, Brian has more than twenty years experience which has led him, along with his wife, Dairys, to start his own adventure-venture, Just Roof And Gutters.

Dairys Raquel Friend

Director of Business Operations

With over 15 years in the mortgage industry, with a speciality in compliance, “Dai” (or also pronounced “Die-Dees”) keeps the administrative management and technical end of Just Roofs And Gutters running smoothly. In addition to being a wife and mom of four grown kids, she has an awesome background as a professional in the financial and real estate industries, and also spent years partnering with Brian in the roofing industry. She is our resident expert who keeps us all on track. She attended Point Loma Nazarene University and Jones Real Estate College, all in preparation for being patient with Brian.

Michael E Conner

Senior Sales and Project Manager

Michael has been in partnership with Brian Friend since 2014. He served previously as a Systems Engineer and Facility Operations Watch Officer at the U.S. Missile Defense Agency. He insists that while roofing is pretty important stuff, it is not rocket science. He has built his roofing industry skills through OJT and great mentoring, but has acquired his relationship-building and communications skills through his previous careers in the U.S. Air Force, in aviation sales, and as a professional with the Boy Scouts of America. His true passion, besides his family, is being a blogger, budding novelist, and a children’s book author.

Jeff McIlroy

Senior Sales and Project Manager

Jeff is a true renaissance man. He grew up and attended the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Following college he came to Colorado to work as a school teacher, and like the rest of the team, eventually decided to strike out on his own as a small business owner. He rounds out the core of our team that has been together for four years now. His passion? Fishing. His other passion? Family. His other passion? Fishing.

Osiel Vazquez

Project Manager

Originally from Mexico, Osiel moved to Colorado and has worked in different financial institutions oriented to support small businesses. Osiel has extensive experience working with business owners to provide various financial solutions to difficult situations and various strategies to support growth. We are excited that he has joined Just Roofs and Gutters’ project management team. He brings his sales philosophy, high attention to detail, and ability to bridge the gap between the Spanish-speaking community and the primarily English-speaking insurance and real estate industry to our team. His integrity and passion for life shows in all his interactions with homeowners, real estate professionals and property managers. We are very proud to have Osiel on our team!
