Our Founder

Mark A. Ursini

Founder & President

Mark Ursini grew up in a family of builders and has been involved in the construction business since a young age. At sixteen, he began tarring foundations and cleaning sites, and eventually ran the construction department for his father’s building and development company in Connecticut. He helped grow the family’s company into one of the largest in the area, specializing in custom home building and commercial real estate development.

When the construction industry was in decline in the New England area, he moved his family to Longboat Key, Florida in the early 1990’s. Employed by a local builder, he served as Vice President of Construction. With over 20 years of experience he has personally built over 300 homes in the surrounding areas. In 2000, Mark founded Brista Homes. His daughters, Brittany and Christa, were the inspiration behind the company name and reflect the company's commitment to family values. Since the founding, Brista Homes has been committed to building homes that meet clients’ needs and exceed their expectations.
