MEET THE BRAMANTE HOMES TEAM
Mark Brement’s passion for beautiful homes began in his youth, growing up in the quaint and architecturally plentiful upstate New York town of Rome. Being surrounded by traditional and Victorian style homes, Mark developed an appreciation for finely crafted structures. His childhood and adolescent handyman skills were polished with a formal construction and carpentry education in the U.S. Military. After serving his country, Mark and his wife Carla relocated to Waynesboro to be closer to family and quickly fell in love with the rural atmosphere, beautiful landscape and wonderful mountain views.
When the Brement’s decided to make Virginia their permanent residence, Mark undertook the task of building his own home. His natural ability paired with his years of experience led to a finely crafted home and a spark of inspiration to begin his own home building business, Bramante Homes Inc. Three decades later, Mark offers a wealth of expertise and unparalleled level of creativity, quality and attention to detail. In addition to his talents as master carpenter and premier home builder, Mark designs all of our speculative homes.
Christopher’s love for home building stems from childhood and teenage years on the jobsite. Following a degree from The University of Virginia and commercial construction experience in Washington, D.C., his love for Central Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley drew him back to the opportunity to work alongside his father. More recently Christopher has enjoyed giving back to the community through his involvement in the Blue Ridge and Augusta Home Builders Associations. In 2011 he was honored with the Jack Merideth Motivational Award in recognition of his contributions on behalf of the home building industry and the Augusta Home Builders Association.
Christopher’s appreciation for family-run business with local roots helps steer the company to utilize local vendors and subcontractors. His understanding of the positive effect hiring local can have on a community helps set Bramante apart from large volume builders. For Christopher, the crafting of a home is not merely a bunch of boards and bricks, but a symphony of fine tuned processes that come from enduring relationships.
