About Us

Our Team

Phoenix Builders was founded in 1988 by Matt and Darius Brown, brothers and Northern Virginia natives who continue to own and operate the company with pride. Matt and Darius learned carpentry as teenagers by working alongside their father, who owned a carpentry contracting company.

Going into business for themselves as Phoenix Builders, Matt and Darius continued primarily with carpentry while expanding their knowledge and expertise over the years. The Browns purchased their first lot in 1996, to begin a new era of Phoenix Builders as a home builder and general contractor.

Today, Phoenix Builders provides quality construction, remodeling, and renovation services in Arlington and McLean. Darius handles the day-to-day supervision on job sites, coordinating clients, business partners, professional service providers, suppliers, staff and labor. Matt keeps the business running smoothly, managing everything from marketing to strategic planning.

Working with Phoenix Builders, you’ll collaborate directly with the owners of a local small business –  a custom builder – with deep roots in the region, a dedication to quality, and a pride for leaving their mark on the homes of Northern Virginia.
