The Brandywine Story


Brandywine Homes
started out like so many other
companies in America
with an entrepreneur
and an idea.

Decades ago, Jim
Barisic noticed that cities in coastal
Southern California were getting older and more crowded.

People in search of
new homes were moving out.

Jim set out to change that.

In 1994 he founded Brandywine
to help revitalize established communities
and convert wasted space
into needed housing.

Pockets of opportunity existed
where modern homes could replace
outdated strip malls,
parking lots or empty warehouses.

So while most
homebuilders left the cities behind,
Jim set up shop
closer to jobs and extended families
on the Southern California coast.

Brandywine Homes has been
at it through good times and bad.
And we’re not slowing down.

We understand the
value of community, long-term partnerships
and people who deserve quality design,
craftsmanship and service
right in their own
