Vice President, Land Entitlement
Brookfield Residential, Southern California
David Bartlett, Vice President of Land Entitlement for Brookfield Residential Southern California, is the man who quite simply, makes Brookfield Residential’s inviting neighborhoods possible.
After 18 years as a planning consultant to land developers, property owners, public agencies, and homebuilders, Dave joined Brookfield Residential Southern California because he wanted to share in the genuine camaraderie that comes with the creation of new communities and homes that are truly unique. Through his friendly, yet persuasive negotiation skills, Dave is exceptional at securing local, state and federal permits for Brookfield Residential, using his role as a political and government liaison to ensure Brookfield Residential’s entitlement plans are legally bound. During the entitlement process, Dave frames Brookfield Residential’s future communities within the context of existing policy so decision makers can see the entire picture of the formation of the community and its consistency with public policy and local goals and objectives.
Dave’s devotion to being a part of these inviting home communities stems from his own life, where his wife and three children live in a Brookfield Residential neighborhood and home and know the value of a welcoming home life. After competing in a triathlon or a hiking adventure to the Grand Canyon, home is a haven of familiar comfort. Home to Dave is a place where memories are being made and futures are built. That’s why when it comes to Brookfield Residential homes and communities, his passion goes beyond his Vice President title—he enjoys taking the time to walk through new communities with Brookfield Residential homebuyers and enthusiasts, sharing in their moments of promise for their own futures. It’s in those moments that Dave knows he’s part of something truly special with Brookfield Residential.
Dave has been a part of Brookfield Residential for 14 years. He holds his Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Arizona. Dave is a registered professional green builder. He is a current member of the board of directors of Orange County Building Industry Association and a past President of the City of Ontario Chamber of Commerce.
