Our Story

A Firm Foundation

The Brownstone companies are leaders in multi-family development and construction. In 1971 William “Bill” L. Brown formed his first real estate company. Over the past 45 years Bill’s companies have planned, developed and/or constructed over 16,000 housing units. Since 2005 over 10,000 of those units have been planned, developed and/or constructed in partnership with Bill’s three sons (Jed, Doak & Wil) valued at over $1 billion dollars.

The Brown family members have worked diligently to create a team of real estate professionals for development and construction. The Brownstone companies are served by capable project managers, construction managers, project superintendents, and office staff. The complete group of partners, employees and consultants bring extensive experience and broad knowledge to the Brownstone companies.

Building for the Future

The Brownstone companies are currently focusing on market rate apartments, multi-family tax credit projects and multi-family disaster recovery program projects.

In 2011 the Brownstone companies opened an office in Monroe, Louisiana to pursue real estate real estate development and construction opportunities in Louisiana, Mississippi and the surrounding states.

In 2018, an in-house property management company was formed to ensure that the Brownstone portfolio of properties receives the very best property management services available. By the close of that inaugural year Brownstone Residential, LLC was managing 26 properties totaling more than 1,800 units. An additional 454 units will be added by the end of 2020.

The Brownstone companies also provide turn-key development and construction for select commercial retailers. Brownstone’s development and construction companies will work diligently develop sites and construct facilities suited for individual retailer’s needs.
