The Breeden Company

Success Through Hard Work And Education.
As The Breeden Company continues to expand through innovative design and forward-thinking construction techniques, we are excited to celebrate more than 60 years of success. Each project we undertake reflects our commitment to community enhancement, economic impact and regional recognition. Our diverse level of experience in residential home building, apartment development and commercial retail components of real estate allow us to stand independently and successfully venture into new real estate endeavors.

We anticipate continued growth as one of the few national vertically integrated developers. Our understanding of the construction, real estate and multifamily industries exemplifies our proven ability to achieve success in all aspects of the real estate development process while surpassing the usual standard of excellence.

We attribute our success to the hard work and unmatched employee dedication that reflect the values of our organization. We are a collection of individuals who demonstrate exceptional leadership and outstanding efforts on a continual basis. As a unit, we demonstrate the skillset and knowledge base that allows for "cutting edge" critical thinking in an effective and consistent manner.
