Co-Founder & President
Brenda started in the real estate/construction/home building industry in the early 1980’s and is the co-founder and managing partner of Christopherson Builders as well as president of Christopherson Properties, both located in Santa Rosa, CA.
Currently the main focus of these companies is assisting the survivors of the wild fires in Northern California, primarily in Sonoma, Napa and Solano counties. Christopherson Homes had built many of the homes which were lost and those homeowners sought out Brenda and husband Keith to assist them with their rebuilding efforts. Once the Christopherson name was associated with these efforts, homeowners from many of the affected communities have reached out for assistance. Many of the award winning Christopherson Homes team also reached out to help recreate the Christopherson Brand and to assist Brenda and Keith with their efforts in rebuilding the community.
Previously, Brenda was co-founder of Christopherson Homes, Christopherson Realty and Artisan Signature Properties. All of her companies have been industry leaders in purchasing raw land, developing, designing, marketing and selling residential real estate for more than 35 years in eight counties in Northern California amounting to more than 6,500 homes in 63 communities.
Recognized as a highly respected private builder, leader, innovator and visionary, Brenda was the recipient of the first Lifetime Achievement for Marketing Excellence for Northern California Home Builders Association. Brenda and the entire Christopherson team have been the recipient of hundreds of awards including Communities of the Year, Marketing Team of the Year, Gold Nugget and JD Powers for Customer Satisfaction to name a few. Brenda was on the board of directors for the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts and The Wells Fargo Center for 10 years as well as the YWCA and Boys and Girls club. She has always been an approachable mentor to women in the industry and received the inaugural North Bay Women in Business award. Brenda and her husband Keith were honored in 2006 with induction into the California Homebuilders Hall of Fame. They were the first husband and wife team to be so honored with this award, and Brenda was only the second female builder to receive this honor in more than 26 years.
