As past president of Brookfield Homes Hawaii, Jeffrey Prostor was a guiding force behind one of Hawaii’s most diverse land development and homebuilding companies. Before establishing Brookfield Homes Hawaii, Prostor was the founding president of its sister division, Brookfield Homes Southland, between 1993 and 2003. During his tenure at Brookfield Homes Southland, located in Southern California, Prostor grew the company into a home building powerhouse, constructing over 500 lots and homes annually, averaging over $300 million in annual sales.
Under Prostor’s leadership, Brookfield Homes Hawaii has developed five neighborhoods across Kauai, Oahu and the Island of Hawaii that encompass nearly 800 homes with prices ranging from the $600,000s to above $4 million. Additionally, under Prostor's guidance, Brookfield is forging new opportunities in urban infill, resort, and university housing.
An incisive, hands-on leader with extensive experience in community development and homebuilding, Prostor oversaw all aspects of the company's operations. In addition to his broad executive responsibilities, he is intimately involved in the planning and design processes that over the years have resulted in establishing Brookfield's reputation for creating architecturally distinctive homes that combine lifestyle comfort with the natural beauty of the environment. Coconut Plantation, in Ko Olina, was Brookfield’s first community and won the coveted NAHB “Best Attached Community” in the nation.
As reflected in his vision, “Preserving the past and building for the future,” Prostor acknowledges that Hawaii's beauty and cultural richness require an extremely important sense of stewardship. Therefore, Brookfield’s communities have been designed to harmonize with the surrounding land and offer its residents breathtaking views of Hawaii’s natural beauty. The homes’ architectural styles and designs honor and incorporate Hawaii’s cultural heritage and island lifestyle, and are also built to accommodate the technological advances of the future.
In addition to his community development and homebuilding expertise, early in his career, Prostor focused on technology research and selected an advanced internet system that allows homebuyers to take advantage of sophisticated digital technology in communication and entertainment systems. His strong interest in the power of technology has also translated into Brookfield's own adoption of advanced, computer-based marketing and operations systems including progressive Internet and wireless capabilities. In another homebuilding innovation, Prostor led Brookfield to use steel framing for several of its new neighborhoods, an excellent choice environmentally because it is made from recycled materials, superior to wood in strength and durability.
Prostor is passionate about giving back to the communities where he builds homes. In addition to helping preserve and restore an ancient Hawaiian archeological site on Kauai, he also led the Brookfield team when they were selected in 2007 to be the builder of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Hawaii. It was the largest build in the show’s history and was made up of a 3,500- square-foot Hawaiian plantation-style home and a 4,500-square-foot headquarters for a non-profit organization that provides family support services for local children and their parents. These two structures were completed in an amazing 106 hours of around-the-clock construction.
In 2014, Prostor lead Brookfield Hawaii to deliver a “Hero’s Welcome” to a deserving local veteran and his family when they received a surprise of a lifetime when greeted with news they were selected for a major home renovation. Along with Brookfield Hawaii, several local businesses were involved to make this renovation possible. The renovation was filmed as a special for television with a closed set. The show aired across major cable networks.
Prostor’s most recent philanthropic effort was to help establish Home Aid Hawaii, a non-profit provider of housing for individuals, families, and youth experiencing homelessness in Hawaii. Home Aid’s purpose is to build and renovate shelters, properties, and housing options owned, operated, or managed by qualifying local non-profits. Home Aid Hawaii was founded in partnership with the Building Industry Association of Hawaii.
Prostor is an active member of the Urban Land Institute, the Aloha Chapter of Lambda Alpha International, the American Institute of Certified Planners, HomeAid Hawaii and KOKA Board membership and the National Association of Home Builders. Prostor was also selected The 2003 Builder of the Year by the Building Industry Association and honored as the Entrepreneur of the Year at the Annual Kapolei, Hawaii Outstanding Achievement Awards. He is a member of BIA Hawaii and also served as President of the Orange County Building Industry Association (BIA).
