Brannon Builders was formed in 2004 by Hunter Brannon and his two sons, David and Mark. Their mission is to build each project with custom quality at an affordable price.
Hunter Brannon began his 40 year career in the home building industry with Reeves Williams Builders in 1969 as their CPA before becoming the company’s Controller in 1972. Over the years he became more and more involved in the construction and sales areas of the company. By 1983 Mr. Brannon took over Construction Operations. He implemented a comprehensive warranty program that enabled the company to efficiently and effectively track and manage hundreds of homes while under warranty. Before retiring from Reeves Williams Builders in 2004, Mr. Brannon managed the building of more than 300 homes per year for many years while maintaining a high standard of quality. Mr. Brannon has had a hand in building many of Desoto County’s best communities like Greenbrook, Plum Point and Flower Creek just to name a few. Though most of his work can be found in Southaven, he has been involved in projects all over the Memphis and North Mississippi region.
The Brannon family has always been a family who works together. In 1980, Mr. Brannon formed a company called “The Chore Company” for David, Mark, and their sister Susan to learn the value of hard work and also to help with the imminent expense of college. It was during their days with The Chore Company that Mark and David were introduced to the construction industry by helping maintain subdivisions, grading yards, clearing land, or whatever odd task might arise.
Most recently, Brannon Builders purchased two developments in Southaven, Deerchase and Central Park. They have also built many of the commercial buildings in the Deerchase Office Park and the Country Oaks Office Park over past 4 years. In addition to recently completing several custom homes in Desoto and Panola counties in North Mississippi, Brannon Builders is building homes in the upscale Weatherby Estates neighborhood west of Hernando.
