With over 30 years devoted to homebuilding and land development, Phil Petersen founded Brookfield Communities with a simple philosophy: building quality builds trust. 

 

Since 1995, the mission behind Brookfield Communities has been to deliver exceptional communities where people can live their best life. With over 2500 homes and counting, Brookfield Communities continues to build upon its legacy of quality with innovative new communities designed for the the way people want to live today,  and building the dreams for the lifestyle of tomorrow. 

 

Fueled by innovation, passion and decades of real estate development experience, our team takes a pioneering approach to residential development 

PHIL Petersen

PRESIDENT

Craig Petersen

VICE PRESIDENT

Craig grew up with Brookfield Communities, under the apt guidance of father Phil and partner Dan. Now, Craig is responsible for day-to-day onsite operations, sales and marketing, and construction oversight. One of his greatest joys is seeing new residents move into their freshly-built home—and maintaining that relationship throughout the years.

 

AUDREY SANGERMAN

Responsible for cost management and construction finance as well as oversight of the sales teams, Audrey has an intimate understanding of what it takes to build a quality home at an appealing price.

Having worked in the construction industry since 1994, Audrey has been a part of Brookfield Communities for over 15 years. “Brookfield’s commitment to maintaining a high level of excellence appealed to m, but it’s their family-centric culture that has kept me here for so long. Every team member is treated like family—trusted and valued in a way you don’t find just anywhere.”

OUR VISION FOR CONSCIENTIOUS DEVELOPMENT

As developers, it is our goal to find effective building solutions that protect forests and support the well-being of local wildlife. By adhering to a strict set of environmentally-friendly building practices, you can trust that your home is symbiotic with its environment and not as a result of deforestation. 

As part of our commitment to the environment and protecting at-risk wildlife locally and on a global level, Brookfield Communities is working to save the last gorillas from extinction in partnership with the Phoenix Zoo and the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International.

For each home sold, Brookfield Communities makes a contribution to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International.
