How We Got Here

Kaufman Development evolved with the career of its founder, Brett Kaufman.

After starting in the banking industry, Kaufman entered the world of real estate, working with large developers in Central Ohio. After taking on a few smaller projects of his own, he discovered that specific, subtle changes in design could dramatically enhance the rental experience.

Brett learned that people loved the idea of residences with elevated style, smart finishes, and a distinctive vision. By pushing the creativity, Kaufman’s identity as a developer emerged: a champion of innovative, curated communities filled with purpose. Brett continues to pursue his vision for communities centered on wellbeing, expression and impact, and the remarkable impact they have on the lives of residents.
