Our Team

OakBrook was founded in 2014 with a vision to solve the Bay Area housing crisis by creating new affordable workforce housing. In 2017, a concern for homelessness grew, and solutions for permanent supportive housing were incorporated into the business plan. As a triple bottom line approach to business, our 100% affordable housing projects also pursue a standard of excellence in green building and environmental design. Certified for both USGBC LEED Certification and Build It Green Certification, we uphold our commitment to positive environmental impact. As a safe and reliable financial investment, our current and continuing capital partners serve as our best reference to describe the deep ethical commitment OakBrook makes to its fiduciary responsibilities to investors and lenders.
