The Braustin Story Seven Years Later: Making Texas Mobile Home Dreams Come True

Hey there, I’m Alberto, and I want to share how we at Braustin started shaking things up in the mobile home industry. It all began with a big dream and no backup plan. We were like many of you – full of “what ifs” and big ideas. Our inspiration? To change how people buy mobile homes, making it as easy and transparent as shopping for a car at CarMax.

How it Started

So, what was our game plan? We wanted to bring the ease of purchasing a car to buying a Texas mobile home. Mobile homes are meant to be convenient, yet the buying experience was anything but. We thought, “Why can’t we simplify this?” And that’s what we set out to do!

Let me tell you, it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Convincing folks to buy homes in a new way was tough. We started from scratch – literally from my living room, juggling work while my kids put on talent shows for Uncle Jason. Eventually, we found ourselves working out of a friend’s office, then moving to a co-working space when the internet gave up on us. It was a real adventure!

Our First Big Break

The turning point came with our first customers, Leroy and Michele Chavez. They took a chance on us, and we navigated through every unexpected turn together. Seeing their home go from a virtual plan to a real, tangible place was a massive win for us. It was proof that our crazy idea was working.

Adapting to a Changing World

Then COVID hit, but surprisingly we were already prepared! We were already operating virtually, so we just doubled down on virtual tours and online mobile home buying, making sure our customers could shop safely and comfortably from their homes. We even set up a hybrid dealership model – part physical, part virtual – to make sure all needs were met, as safely as possible.
