Learn about the homebuilding success of Brookfield Communities

Brookfield Communities began operations over twenty years ago with the collaboration of its two founding principals, each of whom have been involved with the development of masterplanned communities for over thirty years. Together, the Brookfield partners are providing a great lifestyle to thousands of residents who have chosen to build their dream home in Arizona.

Today, the Phoenix based partners continue to guide the company and provide potential homeowners with the value and trust they have come to expect from the Brookfield organization. In a time when many builders have vanished, Brookfield Communities continues to construct homes and communities our residents are proud to call home. We invite you to visit one of our locations and discover the key to Brookfield Communities’ longevity.

  • Phil Petersen
    Phil Petersen President

    With over 30 years devoted to homebuilding and land development, Phil Petersen has been an influence in the growth of the active adult homebuilding industry in the United States. Petersen comes from a unique background; he co-founded a very successful Omaha based rock band, The Chevrons, at age 13. The band was Petersen’s life through college and into his twenties. After starting a family and embarking on a successful career in marketing and real estate, Petersen formed Brookfield Communities over twenty years ago with partner Dan Green. With Green, Petersen has taken the active adult community concept out of the big cities and into the most ‘livable’ parts of Arizona.
