How it Started

The name may be new to the manufactured home industry, but we’re not. In January of 2017, after years of selling and managing teams for big name companies in the mobile homes industry, Alberto and Jason Piña decided it was time to venture out on their own.

That decision actually started in 2015 after losing their brother and best friend Jonathan Piña. Thinking how life is too short to just make a buck, Alberto and Jason wanted to make a difference in the world, and they decided to do it through what they knew best, affordable housing.

The brothers saw first-hand how many people's lives changed when they experienced the American dream of home ownership. They also witnessed how communities grew from the stability more homeowners bring, as well as the money often saved when folks were no longer having to throw away their hard earned money towards monthly rent and endless repairs. Mobile homes may have started out as the family business, but quickly transitioned into the family mission.

The Story of the Name “Braustin”

Braustin is a combination of the three brothers' middle names.

Braustin Name Explained

It was Jonathan who planted the seed for what is now Braustin Homes. This company is as much Jonathan's legacy as it is those of us who work here today, and Alberto and Jason pour themselves into the work they do for our clients to honor his memory.

The Nation's 1st Virtual Home Dealer

By designing and implementing the nation's first virtual home dealership, we not only made the home buying process easier, but safer and more cost effective for everyone involved. It's no longer necessary to keep leaving home and driving all the way down to a dealership, just to complete a ton of stuff that could have been done all while sitting on your couch. Our business model has streamlined the process, saving everyone time, which in turn, saves everyone money!

At Braustin, we also believe the more you understand the home buying process, the more satisfied you will be with your overall experience. Through our upfront pricing, transparent communication, and education-based sales practices, we hope to empower home buyers with the information they need to become confident homeowners.

The Bigger Picture

  • Doing business virtually keeps our costs down which keeps your price down.
  • We can run our business with less people than a similar size traditional home dealership.
  • Less people equals lower costs on our end, which means we can pass that savings on to you.
  • It all fits in our larger mission, providing homes at an affordable price so more people can become homeowners of a home they love.

Braustin in the Community

We take time to get connected with our community and bring awareness to both the lack of affordable housing options and what we’ve done to be part of the solution.
