Brandan's first trade was as an automotive painter, something he started learning at 13 when he would spend summers working as a painter’s helper for his father.  This is where his eye for detail and quality started.  His enthusiasm for construction started while he assisted his father and uncles with home additions, roofing projects, and also building the families cabin in Strawberry, Arizona.

He has completed several marathons, as well as over 10 triathlons.  He is a NASA Drug Free Power lifting National Champion and wrestled at the collegiate level.

Timothy Russo – Manages all construction operations for Reef Builders and has a long history in the construction industry spanning over 25 years. Tim has actively performed work on and managed over 18 million in construction remodel, design/build, and commercial tenant improvement projects.

Tim's construction career started when he was 11 years old, where he worked with his father on every type of construction project you can think of. Tim’s family knew he had a knack for construction when he asked his mom to drive him to the hardware store to purchase materials to drywall his bedroom walls, which were built from adobe, so he could hang his newly acquired posters. When his father came home to see the work he decided his son really was a natural. Tim and his father ran a successful construction company for over 12 years. Tim truly has the experience and ability to build a home from the ground up without any help. Tim is a very hands-on owner, if we let him, he would personally labor on every portion of a project.

Tim is a native Arizonan and lives with his wife, two children, and their small poodle. His hobbies include camping, fishing and playing poker, and running triathalons. He will be completing his first half marathon in 2018. Tim has spent several years coaching Little League Baseball, youth football, and youth wrestling for his two boys. After graduating from Camelback High School Tim attended Phoenix College, and then received a Bachelor of Science in Management from ASU.
