Daniel Brazovan

Daniel Brazovan initially started in the general construction industry in the Sacramento, California, area in 1994. His first company Brazovan and Sons' core business model revolved around the facilitation and installation of mobile homes and offices. In the spring of 2003, Daniel and his family moved to the North Suburbs of Chicago and partnered up with a few entities to begin mid/large scale condominium conversions. The first project he completed was a 22-unit apartment building on the Northwest Side of Chicago at 6341-45 North Washtenaw, which sold out completely in 2006. After that, he went on to complete four additional apartment-to-condominium conversions, totaling 58 units.

As many general contractors adjusted their business models after the 2008 collapse of the housing market, Danny decided to focus on his own general construction company. Danny continued to be a go-to name in the North Suburban market for home additions, bathroom, kitchen, and basement renovations. As business progressed, Danny was able to solidify and form long-term relationships with some of the most active and growing property management companies in the Chicagoland area. To this day, Danny's business model has centered around the client and customer service. His business and scope of services continue to grow and include: single family construction, City of Chicago violation repair/replacement work, commercial build-outs, and many others.
