about us

Green Brick Partners, Inc. is a publicly-traded company listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “GRBK”. Green Brick Partners, Inc. is a diversified homebuilding and land development company that operates in Texas, Georgia, Florida, and Colorado – some of the best markets in the country.

our vision

We are founded on the belief that locally-focused land development is the starting point for a builder’s profitability and that both homebuilding and land development are best executed on a local, decentralized basis. We manage land risk through rigorous underwriting and provide our subsidiary homebuilders with centralized state-of-the-art operational support in: IT systems, accounting, operational systems, national purchasing, marketing analytics, and human resource management. Additionally, our mortgage and title operations make buying a home a seamless experience and provide real-time visibility into our buyers.

Going forward, we intend to grow both organically and by purchasing more builders. This strategy was used in the acquisition of an 80% majority ownership of GHO Homes. We will also purchase 100% of a builder, or do a start-up in a major market as we did with Trophy Signature Homes, but only if the top-level management team has a positive long-term track record and reputation in its local market.

Our ultimate goal is to build quality neighborhoods interwoven with the latest technological advancements that provide superior long-term returns for our investors, stakeholders, residents, and cities in which we build.
