David Edelstein -- President
"As President of Greenbriar Construction, I have overseen my company doing residential and commercial construction projects over the last 40+ years. With every project we take on, our goal is to build with the highest degree of craftsmanship and offer the most quality features which add the greatest quality to our customer's life; and to do it in a cost-effective, sustainable and innovative way."
Building has been an Edelstein Family tradition for 3 generations. After graduating from the University of Akron and serving in the U.S. Army, David decided his future was in construction. In 1979, David moved his family to Bellingham, WA and started Greenbriar Construction. Today, Greenbriar Construction is one of Bellingham's premiere construction companies. David and his wife, Katie, have three sons, Matthew, Nathan and Josh, and one daughter, Jessica. Katie, Josh and Jessica work alongside David at Greenbriar Construction.
Katie Edelstein -- Design Coordinator
Katie has worked side-by-side her husband, David, for over 30 years. Over the years, Katie has acquired a natural aptitude for interior and exterior design and has put it to good use working with Greenbriar's customers. Katie's responsibilities include interior & exterior house design and customer & client relations.
"I enjoy working alongside my husband and my kids, Jessica and Josh, and I'm never more pleased than when a customer is happy with their new home and praises Greenbriar's hard work."
