Jeremy Brougher, superintendent for us at Jirsa Construction, was born and raised in Flagstaff. He enjoys exploring the desert backcountry, and playing music with his friends.
His professional career began at a local cabinet shop just before highschool, where he would help out with sweeping and sanding. After highschool graduation, he became head of the custom furniture department, and could fill in anywhere needed. During the recession, changes had to be made, and he began work at a new custom cabinet shop where he quickly became shop forman and lead installer.
In 2017, he began to realize that after 20 years in the custom cabinetry field, he wanted to do more, take on bigger projects and use a broader collective of his accumulated skills and passion for building nice things. Jeremy has been with Jirsa construction since 2018 and has completed numerous projects for us, with a phenomenal aptitude for understanding the materials, sensitivity of schedule, management of subcontractors, and a genuine enjoyment for engaging with our clients.

"I have been a real estate broker for 40 years. I have built many homes and worked with many builders. I chose Jirsa Construction for many of my own projects as well as my own personal home. Brett is by far the most hands-on builder I have ever worked with. Brett Jirsa will answer your phone calls in a reasonable amount of time. Brett Jirsa will give you ideas even if those ideas are the expense of his final draw. I have referred Brett Jirsa to many of my clients for remodels and new home construction. In all these years, I have never had a client ever call me with anything but the utmost praise and appreciation for connecting them with Jirsa Construction."

"Brett is hands down the best builder in Flagstaff. He is a true local with roots that go back a long ways in this community. We are building a one of a kind house in Flagstaff that incorporates passive solar, rain water collection, and many other 'green' building aspects. The house is part of the Coconino Sustainability program and you can follow updates on the house on Instagram with the #houseonash. The finished house will also be part of the Sustainability Tour. The house was designed by a fantastic architectural firm, LightVox Studios, and because of its very modern design, there have been multiple occasions where Brett and his crew have had to come up with amazing construction solutions. We could not be happier. If you are looking for someone to build you a quality house, whether its a spec or its a one of a kind, Brett and Jirsa Construction are THE BEST firm in town."

"Brett did a fantastic job for us. We have used a lot of contractors over the years and Brett outshines them all. We also had him remodel our historic home in Flagstaff. For a quality job well done and on schedule - he's the man."
Gil Gillenwater - Jerome, AZ
"We so enjoyed working with Jirsa Construction to create a downstairs master suite in our 1964 Coconino Estates home. Brett and office manager Jill were very transparent and open in the communications all through the process. The project was on time, under budget, and better than we hoped for. The project manager, Keith, was diligent and easy to work with, and a great wood worker! But what I cannot say enough about is their willingness to work as a team with us. They smoothly handled the installation of my fixture purchases (some were a little out-of-the norm). They completely understood where we were with budget and gave us options at multiple stages, to help us prioritize where to splurge. Finally, the sub-contractors that Brett worked with were all super kind and professional; we really appreciated that as it was an in-house remodel with the family mostly at home. We would not hesitate to use Brett and his team again, and gladly recommend them to potential remodelers or home builders."
