Farmhouse Kitchen with a Future


Carl Bruen founded Bruen Custom Building, LLC in 1996 after taking a break from the real estate and construction industries to be VP and National Sales Manager for an artist materials company. He developed the SYMPHONY line of faux finishing tools now sold nationwide, and consulted with Sherwin Williams in the development of the Ralph Lauren Paint and faux finishing line. Prior to this, he owned and operated American Investment, Realtors, a commercial/investment real estate company and consultancy for 6 years.
As a young boy, Carl loved designing houses, and his interest in homes, building value through real estate, and remodeling/construction continuedthrough high school. Carl first learned about design and construction under the tutelage of his mentor, Howard Polo, Master Builder. He worked on Polo homes and renovations for many years during high school and college. Upon graduation from Lafayette College, Carl led his five family-owned Century 21 Carlton Bruen franchises in Morris County, New Jersey for 12 years.
Carl has a BA in Economics from Lafayette College in Easton, PA. He also earned the GRI, CCIM Candidate, and CCIB designations as a Realtor.
While Carl is an expert trim carpenter and that is perhaps his first love, his main responsibilities now are Design, Sales, Construction Supervision and Management, and Operations.
