Brooke Shuburte

Office Manager

Brooke Shuburte has been with us at Mark Morris Construction for six years as Office Manager. Growing up around construction she was always fascinated with building and architecture, and she has used that passion as a base to build her knowledge and become an expert in her role here at Mark Morris Construction. Brooke takes care of all interior design and planning for our spec homes, all the way from the brick to the light fixtures and everything in between. For a custom build, she is there for the whole process. In the beginning while meeting with Mark and picking out a plan, Brooke is there to begin building your file – taking note of the things that are important to the customer, assessing their style and expectations, etc. Throughout the building process, she walks the customer through step-by-step to pick out the selections for their home, keep things within budget, and keeps the project running smoothly.
