As the housing market continues to fluctuate, there are some builders who are still finding ways to succeed. One such builder is Irvine-based Brandywine Homes. Recently ranked number 12 (up from 24 in 2008) among the Orange County Business Journal’s top 30 Homebuilders, Brandywine has stayed lean and focused to weather the current economic downturn. Established in 1994 by Jim Barisic and his three sons Brett Whitehead, Mark Whitehead, and Dave Barisic, Brandywine Homes’ business plan is to develop land and build moderately priced homes in “infill” locations throughout Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego counties.
