Brookfield is a major residential property owner and operator, with market leadership in land development and home building in North America and Brazil. 


Brookfield creates value by applying decades of experience in residential real estate to the full spectrum of development, including land acquisition, planning, design, construction, sales and customer service.

In North America, we operate as Brookfield Residential Properties Inc. and we are active in eleven principal markets in Canada and the United States, with over 100,000 lots under our control. We are the fifth largest residential real estate company in North America, with five decades of experience in the field. Our focus is on master planned communities, where we purchase and develop land, then either build homes or sell lots to third-party builders.

In South America, we are known as Brookfield Incorporacões, a leading Brazilian-based developer. We provide homes to customers across all income classes, with a focus on the middle-income segment. We serve one of the world’s most vibrant economies, and we are market leaders in the metropolitan regions in the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, as well as the mid-Western region of Brazil. The areas in which we operate generate 60% of Brazil’s GDP.
